A search from some of the content of http://www.number1finance.net which was reported by a potential victim, found these other additional fake sites:

These key words put into a Google search: "recognizes that not everyone has perfect credit. That's why our personal loans are designed to fit many financial situations and budgets." Found the following fake loan company websites. These sites have recent registration, even though they claim to have been in business for a while. They ask for information on an insecure form and have missing or questionable contact details:

-I was a victim of Metrowide Lending Group. Because of these jerks :evil: , my family has suffered so much. I had to borrow the money of the Advanced payment from my parents, who are retired. They got me so good. I must have had my name changed to Tootsie Pop, because I was a big sucker. I guess that now, I have learned my lesson. But I have one of the phone number that wasn't listed. I can only hope that it will help. Here it is: 416-958-0000. I only pray that this won't happen to anyone else.

Hi MrsSS and welcome. I'm sorry to hear that you were scammed. Please do read the informational topic here that explains about Advance Fee Loan scams and let us know if you have any questions. If you have not already done so, please report the crime to your local police. They may not be able to do much but it is good to have it reported. Please also read information about identity theft defense here: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/
In the application process with the scammers, you likely provided enough information for them to steal your identity.

There appears to be a website associated with the name you mention, here: http://braslerfinancialgroup.com/main.htm

Were you scammed through this site? If so, please send me a copy of emails you have, we may be able to try to get it shut down, though the loan scam sites are sometimes very difficult to work on, as you may be able to tell by the list here.

Here is the registration period for that site:

Registrar of Record: TUCOWS, INC.
Record last updated on 29-Sep-2009.
Record expires on 29-Sep-2010.
Record created on 29-Sep-2009.


Note that it was JUST opened at the end of September 2009.


Thank you for taking the time to post here, the information you provided may help to save others. Good luck to you.

Welcome to scamwarners misty.

I am sorry you were taken advantage of by these callous, uncaring and unscrupulous thieves.

I am disheartened too that the press were uninterested.

I can think of a number of ways to get your own back.

1 ) Read up here and elsewhere - learn about scammers and their methods.

2 ) Write up and post an account here, and elsewhere on the web, telling/advising/warning others.

3 ) Spread the word to friends and family, in fact anyone at all, about scammers and on-line safety/awarness.

4 ) Forgive yourself - each and everyone of us makes mistakes, but by being positive we can and do make a difference to the benefit of many.

<hugs>

Granite-lending.com

I just got an e mail from this company. a Whois search confirms what I thought- this may be a rebadged scam company.
The contact is Jeremy Hunt , but curiously, the website is owned by Mkj Marketing, a funeral home business based in Largo,Florida (US) ALso interesting is the fact that they own over 200 other domains under this registrar, and have changed IP's at least 3 times in as many years. Here is a different twist: they will ask you to go to a website called creditreport.com, I'm assuming this is another website owned by MKJ Marketing. The credit report website will ask you to use your credit card for "credit reporting services". I don't trust them and I am not going to use my credit card on this site, as I fear they will bleed me dry. Does anyone have a similar experience with this company? :?:

Ooh, it's beloved creditreport.com again :roll:

That company, though officially legitimate, has turned up in a variety of scams. The last time it came up here on Scamwarners was in the context of a fake property rental scam.

Freecreditreport.com runs the typical "get your credit report free, but in exchange, we'll sign you up for a trial credit monitoring program". If you don't cancel, your credit card will be charged monthly. The site gives you cancellation instructions, but many users report that cancellation just doesn't go as smoothly as it should, and they find themselves battling months of charges.

The company has an affiliate program, and affiliates get a fee for each person who gets sucked into the credit monitoring program. A quick check shows the current fee is $24 per person. Suffice it to say that the company doesn't believe in looking too deeply at how the affiliate gets you to click. So basically, scammer creates a fake loan, sends you to the site to get your credit report to qualify for it, you enter your info, and if you don't cancel on time, the scammer gets $24. If he does this to even a hundred people, that's $2400 in his pocket. It's not the typical "send a payment by western union" scam, but it is a scam nonetheless.
