Possible Advance Fee Scam

March 11, 2011

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions is warning consumers to verify the license of any lending professional they are considering doing business with. You can verify a license by calling the Department of Financial Institutions at 1-877-RING DFI (746-4334) or online at www.dfi.wa.gov.

It has been reported that Fast Financial Funds Company, https://fastfinancialfundscompany.com, is offering online payday loans and other types of consumer financing for which consumers may be required to pay an up upfront or advance fee.

Fast Financial Funds Company claims to have an address of 7009 24th Avenue NW, Seattle, Washington, 98117, and a contact telephone of 206-337-3299.

The address stated on the website is falsely associated with the unlicensed entity. The telephone number is active and registered to Fast Financial Funds Company, 845 Finchley Road, London, NW11 8NA United Kingdom.

Research also shows this information as belonging to the registrant of the website being used.

The company is not licensed by the Washington State of Department of Financial Institutions. The company is not registered to do business in Washington by either the Department of Revenue or the Washington Secretary of State. The company likely operates out of the United Kingdom.

If You Feel You're A Victim

If you feel you have been a victim of a loan scam, please contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC HELP (382-4357), or online at www.ftc.gov. Because the scammers may have access to bank account information and social security numbers, consumers who have used this company to try and obtain a loan should consider themselves victims of identity theft and take appropriate precautions. The Federal Trade Commission has information for victims of identity theft available online at www.ftc.gov.
