Consumer Alert: National Lending Corporation

June 4, 2008

The company advertises on the Internet indicating that it can provide loans, consolidation loans, and home mortgages. Consumers are asked to send a voided check and an additional check for $2,500. After receipt of the checks, National Lending Corporation states they would then deposit two separate checks in the amount of $35,000 within the next two month. This appears to be another advance fee loan scam.

The website lists National Lending Corporation’s address at 1301 Lafayette, Detroit, MI 48226. National Lending Corporation has no known office in the state of Washington. Its website does not list Washington State as a state in which it is licensed. The company is not licensed by the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions.

There is a National Lending Corporation that is licensed with the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions that is not affiliated with the above referenced company.

Victims should report their experiences to the Internet Fraud Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov.
