I applied to United Lending Services (.com), they "refer" you to lenders for small loans if you are having a hard time finding credit. They send you an e-mail link to make a (1) time payment to United Lending Services via paypal for $29.95, and then a couple of days later make an unauthorized EFT transaction against your bank account in the amount of $34.95, but it shows up as United Loans Source (.com). You write to them and they tell you they are united lending services (.com), and not affiliated with united loan services (.com). The coincidence is there happen to be other folks out there who have made the same complaint against the same two companies, yet unitedlendingservice.com claims it isn't them. FRAUD, total FRAUD/SCAM.

  • The original poster is correct! That place is a scam and Paula sounds just as much of a fraud as that company. Why Because no company would charge you processing fee's to get the loan and if they did they would just take it out of loan amount. It's a violation of state and federal laws. I found this out because I asked around and googled it. Also they have an F rating on BBB. More info here. Below is a snippet with a Fraud Lawyer about it.
    "There is a company called United Lending Services located in Chicago, which has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, and an alert, for requiring up-front processing fees on loans, in violation of both state and federal law. Also, the address provided for that company was not valid. If this is the same company, and it very well could be, you definitely should steer clear.

    The web address that you gave me was registered on July 6, 2012. That means this is a brand-new company. Scam companies frequently form new identities, register and create websites, and start taking people's money. So, it's always a bad sign when you see a brand new company in an industry that is primarily scam artists, because, even if they are legitimate, there's no way to know - there aren't any positive reviews, and no established reputation. They registered using a third-party anonymous registration service. That means that there's no way to find out who is really behind the site. It usually means that the company is hiding, and that's not a good sign.

    The company is not registered with the New York Secretary of State. Because banks and other lending services are heavily regulated, you typically want one that went through the steps of registering with the state in which they do business as a corporation or a limited liability company.

    Also, when I search for that address - I get a law firm, a pest control company, and a charitable foundation, all at the same address. There's something fishy there. I'm not 100% sure what's going on, but scam artists frequently use the address of UPS stores to give themselves an air of legitimacy, and I found a UPS store atXXXXX- right next to it. All things considered, it doesn't add up.

    On top of that, no legitimate company will charge you upfront fees to get a loan. Any fees are tied into the loan itself, or paid at the moment you are handed a check. If any company wants you to send them a wire transfer or Western Union so they can give you money, don't do it.
