I too was scammed by Bellview Financial Group. I was told that I could get a $42,000 loan; all I had to do was put up collateral worth 10 months of payments.
The first individual to contact me was Simon York. I signed the contract, sent it back, sent the money and nothing. The next person I spoke with was Andrew Shields. He was very apologetic about the delay and “worked” on getting everything rectified.
Needless to say, I am out the $6K I sent to include Western Union Fees, have upset my two closest relatives that lent me the money and I am kicking myself for being so stupid as to fall for this.
I will say – desperate people do desperate things.
Note: I have seen other recent cases of people paying this company advanced fees for loans they never receive. Advanced fees have been paid via Western Union to receivers in Spain. The web server for Bellview Financial Group is located in France. The company is not located in Wisconsin and I have had a discussion with the State of Wisconsin over this matter. There is no licensed company by that name in Wisconsin.
