Dear Marcia,

I’m afraid you got scammed out of your $2,400. At least it certainly appears that way.

I found the website for Bellview Financial Group, who in a previous domain name registration claimed to be located at:

Bellview Financial Group
1192 Hansen Road
Green Bay,WI 08210
The zip code is actually for NJ but they list another zip code on their website of 54304.

I spoke to the realtor that handles the building they listed as their office address but he did not recognize the name.

The number associated with that domain is 877-628-6336 and the number was answered by an automated message that would not let me connect with anyone nor leave a message.

I attempted to reach the public email address associated of [email protected] but it bounced back with a message that no such user existed.

The Bellview Financial Group site looks real at first glance, but it’s not.

Other warning signs this is a scam is that they do not list any person on their website, a search for Bellview Financial Group reveled they are not registered with the State of Wisconsin, and the server the website is located on is in Paris, France.

It appears you are not the only person to have been scammed.

i applied for a personal loan and recived a call from belview finacial the man said his name was simon york and i was aproved for a 20000 dollar loan but i needed to send 1975 dollars witch was equal to 5 months payments so i did by western union and faxed back the signed contract well the next day i got a call stating they needed another 1975 dollars i said i didnt have it so i asked for a refund and was told i could get it by certified check by tuesday may 31 but i didnt and i called the number back and got no answer. – Source

i have the same problem i spoke to simon york first and then andrew shields and did there western union andrew said that they would deposite my loan and now when i call it says ext is in valid . i had to borrow the money to do this they said i was aproved for 7,000 dollars now i cant seem to get ahold of anyone even when i fax they dont respond .i even tried to find a local phone number and it seems there isnt one . i sent them almost 3000 dollars. and now im in a real bad way . i dont know what to do . can anyone help me please. – Source

Marcia, you should call your local police and file a police report. Then, since you live in Michigan, file a complaint online with the Michigan Attorney General here. You should also file an online complaint with the State of Wisconsin, and you can do that here.

  2. No legitimate lender I’ve ever seen will give a real loan to folks in a bad situation with bad credit. All I’ve ever seen are being being scammed in those situations. 

    The best situation would be to contact the bank you owe money to and work out a payment plan. Until then check with the folks that are depositing funds and see if they can deposit them on an ATM card. Some will.

    Check with a local credit union and see if they will be a bit more lenient in opening an account for you. The issue is that banks are not in the business of wanting to lose money and as long as your bank is reporting a negative balance it might appear when another bank runs a background check prior to opening an account.
