An amazing reader Burgemj sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program.
It appears to be yet another offer sent from a very common sender, Sacramento, California Postal Permit 1297. Consumers have received a number of debt reduction offers from that postal permit.
The debt consolidation loan offer from Bicoastal Funding arrived in a nondescript white envelope.
On the inside we learn the offer was sent to Alabama from a company named Bicoastal Funding who says they are located at, oh yea that’s right, they don’t say.
According to the Better Business Bureau the company has no rating but is located at 2525 S Telegraph Rd, Suite 306, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302. – Source
According to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs the name Bicoastal Funding is an assumed name of Sinew Management Group, LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Company.
According to documents filed with the State of Michigan the company Sinew Management Group, LLC is a Delaware corporation that is located at 312 Main Street, PO Box 1030, New Town, North Dakota. Now that small town sounds familiar. It was mentioned in an article about Sovereign Funding.
That company is authorized to conduct business in Michigan under the name Charging Bison JV.
As well as Beaumont Funding.
And AQIWO-SMG JV.
No Evidence They Are Licensed
The offer received by the consumer who sent this is was mailed to Alabama. I could find no evidence Bicoastal Funding or Sinew Management Group is registered to do business in Alabama.
The Debt Consolidation Loan Offer
Here is the letter the consumer received.
The Bicoastal Funding website appears to make no mention the company name is a fictitious registered name. Even the site terms refer to the owner of the website as Bicoastal Funding. The domain name bicoastalfunding.com was registered on May 15, 2014 and the domain ownership is hidden so we can’t confirm who really owns the site.
The offer lists a telephone number of 800-816-5872 and encourages people to go to their website and provide personal information.
The letter also lists C.P. O’Berry as the CEO of Bicoastal Funding.
Back of Letter
The back of the letter says Bicoastal Funding is solely responsible for the content but since that name is a fictitious name registered that actually is for a different company, how can that be true?
I’ve Invited the Company to Clear Up Confusion and Provide Proof
As I published this I’ve asked the company to come and post a comment to help clear up the confusion of exactly who they are and what states they are registered in as a lender.
Until the company responds, consumers should do their homework and check out the company to make sure all their questions have been answered. You can use these guides.
I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read the following free guides.
