Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. How did you learn about this company? Did they make unsolicited contact with you? How did you send the money? Credit card? Check?

they were on the web site as a reputable company. .I paid with a debit card.

Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 11 months ago

There is a fedhelp.org, but this isn't it. This company is using a domain name similar name to another company and likely running a fraud.

First of all, when you go to their web address it takes you to another business: NSLFC. The website claims that NSLFC 's site was copyrighted in 2014. In fact, the business domain name is ***** ***** a year old and the site has yet to be crawled by Google. It's also set up to be around for a short period of time. These are signs of fraud.

Most important though is the fact that they wanted an up front fee to work for you. That's the biggest sign of a loan scam because they are illegal. Read this warning from the Federal Trade Commission.

As it turns out NSLFC is F rated by the Better Business Bureau for not responding to customer complaints. An F rating in and of itself is a reason not to do business with a company. You can see the review and read the complaint history here.

You can also see a review about them here which indicates that they are not safe to deal with and that all their claims of legitimacy, including where they are located, are false. There are other complaints as well.

If you paid with a debit card, you want to call your bank immediately and tell them that your card is compromised. Get a new card and use a different PIN number.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
