These thieves/con artists are operating under various names, using various East Coast locations, including the states of New York, Connecticutt, and Massachusetts. They use the same scam under different company names, they operate out of a virtual office, meaning they have no set physical location, and they usually mention America One on the websites.
They are listed under various names including Nationwide, Ameritrust Investments and Fenix Financial.
Some of the con artists' sites look professional, some are very rudimentary and plain.
Victims of these scam artists should file an online complaint with the FBI, the FTC, and the Royal Mounties Canadian Police at their phonebusters site. Forget the Better Business Bureau; they are useless.
Victims can also contact their local TV news stations, especially the ones who do consumer alerts and investigations. It can't hurt to contact local TV stations in the city and state where the perpetrators are located. I've gotten positive feedback from them.
Filing with the state Attorney General's office where the criminals are located can't hurt; however, be aware that there is very little that they may do other than have their consumer hotline people send you a form to file a complaint.
You should file a complaint with your local police department to ensure that they file with the local police in the area where the cons are operating.
Accept the fact that, if you have bad/poor credit, very few reputable companies are going to give you a loan until your credit has improved. I say very few because there may be a couple such as HFC and CitiFinancial, but even they require a high enough FICO score and no tax liens.
