Advance Fee Loan Scam Using Legitimate Business Name and Address
April 6, 2009
CornerStone Lending, Inc. is a licensed Mortgage Broker located in Wenatchee, Washington.
CornerStone Lending's name has been used in an advance fee scam advertising loans on the internet.
The internet scam is not affiliated with CornerStone Lending, Inc.

How The Scam Works
- Consumers who respond to the internet advertisement are told that they have been approved for a loan
- The consumer is required to send a down payment of several thousand dollars and the money must be wired to an individual in Canada before the loan proceeds can be sent
- Once a consumer sends the money, no loan is provided.
