Consumer Statement:

I was scammed by the CLS (Consumer Lending Service) Group out of $2500. I was solicited to refinance my house and roll in my home equity loan to make one loan at 2.99% Well, I did all the paperwork and sent it back and made sure I paid the $2500.

I am yet to hear from them about a closing date, a time to fill out paperwork, or any other business matter. Once they cashed the check that was it. They were don with me. I get no return calls, hung up on, and no return emails.

Consumer Action Taken:

I have tried to resolve this by sending them emails about the status of my account, calling every few days to see whats going one, and getting answers to my questions as to loan pay offs, closing dates, escrow, and any other pertinent information that will help the account move forward.

    I have sent two certified letters to the CLS group demanding my money back. I have yet to receive a response. I am now talking to attorneys and taking them to court. They have clearly violated SB 94 and are operating without a license. I will pursue them until they are closed down!!!

      Well count me in. I was told I could possibly have a refund by the end of the month. I will wait and see. I had an attorney send a strong letter. I will do what ever it takes to get my money back

        Awesome for you. Let me know what happens… I submitted my claim at the court house today. We’ll see what happens. I can’t believe they’re still operating. I have filed complaints with the Department of Real Estate, and BB. I plan to file fraud charges at the Police Department tomorrow, that’s what they recommended at the court house today. Also, Department of Real Estate said there were only two complaints against The CLS Group. More people need to come forward and file complaints with the Department of Real Estate because then the FBI will get involved. Please file a complaint if you haven’t already done it.

        Hello: We are reading all about scams and we too have been taken for $1,500 from the CLS group–How do you get in touch with the Department of Real Estate?
