First things first!

Thank you JACKIE for sending me a copy of Dune Venture’s new mailer!

I wish I had time to say more but all I can say is God Bless All of You who are helping me. Do you see how quickly these new websites go up? These guys are moving quickly so we have to do the same. I can’t thank you all enough for reaching out and staying in touch with me. We will get rid of the ruthless gang that I call “The Pirates of Debt. That is my goal! They are getting quite creative Dune Ventures, Braidwood Capital, Tiffany Funding, Nickel Advisors, and Coral Funding. I’m sure these jerks will keep surprising us.

In my last article, I offered $50 to anybody who would send me any new direct mail with a suspicious offer so I can review it before too much damage was done.

The response continues to be overwhelming. I still can not believe how many people responded. I have never had such a hard time giving away $50.

Keep looking out for one another. This is the time that Americans pull together. Ordinary Americans looking out for one another. If I get laid off from my job, I am still going to continue posting these articles. That’s how much this means to me.

Here is the email from Jackie. This makes it worth it for me to get up in the morning.

Hi, Ed was reading your article on these 3rd party scammers. I call them😀 I just received this one in the mail Dune Ventures along with another one you talked about Coral Funding. What a waste of Postal Service’s time. A lot of people like us hurting from this Covid-19 economy are hurting for money and without Great People like you to catch theses creeps and warn us.  Last year I was scammed for someone saying they were from Microsoft and said my computer was hacked! I  fell for it.😡 He was that good. Needless to say, I only lost $395.00.  I’m handicapped and living on a fixed income. Lossing the money really hurt, but most of all my pride. These People must have a way to scope us out? I’m one of the lucky ones from stories I’ve heard.  

Thanks Ed! Thanks for helping the American People 🇺🇸💞

Oh! One more thing. Keep the $50 to keep the truth coming!!

It’s only been 7 days since my last article on Braidwood Capital! We are obviously keeping somebody up at night! Mabye they are starting to feel the walls closing in on them? Let’s hope so….

On August 11, July 26, July 16, and July 3, I published articles on Braidwood Capital, Tiffany Funding, Nickel Advisors, and Coral Funding.

Please stay in touch with me. If you don’t have a mailer to send, just drop me a note and let me know my work has helped you out. That’s enough for me. I can’t thank you enough for your help.

If anybody receives a debt relief offer in the mail and they want to know if it legitimate, send an email to:

[email protected]

I will pay $50 for any debt relief offer junk mail that I haven’t seen and ends up being published. So please contact me quickly and beat the rush!

Dune Ventures is the newest bait and switch trap brought to you by none other than the same devil that brought you Braidwood Capital, Tiffany Funding, Nickel Advisors and Coral Funding and about 50 other debt consolidation and personal loan web sites.

The story is the same. They lure you in by sending you direct mail with a “personalized invitation code” and a low 3%-4% interest rate to consolidate your high-interest credit card debt. You will be directed to duneventures.com or myduneventures.com. More than likely you will not qualify for one of their debt relief loans and they will try and flip you into a more expensive debt settlement product.

“Stand On Your Own With Dune Ventures”

whatever……

Dune Ventures wants you to keep quiet and not email me. They only need you to be quiet for one week until they launch the next website. Don’t let them win!

This is nothing new. Many unscrupulous debt marketing companies have been using this as a business model for years. They lure you in with the low-interest rate, string you along for a week, and then let you know that you don’t qualify for a loan. They then offer you some very expensive alternative debt options.

Dune Ventures Reviews and Ratings

Dune Ventures and its affiliated web sites are not accredited by the BBB and have been the subject of numerous complaints and negative press under different names.

MEC Distribution LLC

At one time, Dune Ventures and its affiliated web site operated under the name MEC Distribution, LLC. The Better Business Bureau put out its first alert about this enterprise in February 2018:

In February 2018, BBB staff visited the Fargo ND addresses provided by MEC Distribution and found that all locations were vacant and the building management explained that although the rent was paid by MEC Distribution, the office spaces were not used. MEC Distribution LLC provided BBB with a mailing address for complaint handling in Bloomfield Township Michigan. BBB’s mail to that address has been returned as ‘not deliverable as addressed- unable to forward’.  At this time, BBB does not have a physical location for this business.

BBB has confirmed with the North Dakota Department of Financial Institutions that Lafayette Funding is not licensed in North Dakota as a debt settlement firm. Furthermore, BBB has contacted building management at the address Lafayette Funding claims in Bismarck, North Dakota, and learned that Lafayette is not located at that address. BBB advises extreme caution when dealing with this entity.

Dune Ventures BBB Reviews

You won’t find a BBB file on Dune Ventures because the complaints haven’t started rolling in yet. However, we examined some complaints from its affiliated web sites:

Cathy M. – 1 Star Review

They have changed their name to Salvation Funding. After seeing this rating I see why. I don’t know how they got my info but they need to he stopped.

Terry W. – 1 Star Review

Beware of bait and switch mailer. Terms are “extremely different” than advertised! It’s a waste of time.

My purpose is to help others realize this is a waste of time! Pebblestone Financial advertising is definitely deceptive in my opinion. After my conversation with Fred, his response was, “we can definitely help… I will call you tomorrow morning with the details…have pen and paper ready to write down the numbers.” The mailer does include in fine print…This notice is not guaranteed if you do not meet select criteria.”

It also further states: “This notice is based on information in your credit report indicating that you meet certain criteria.” In my case, I am not late on any payments, nor will I be. I am current on all outstanding debt and my credit history demonstrates this. When Fred call the next morning…his terms were totally ridiculous and in my opinion “predatory lending”. When I ask Fred… are these the terms of the Pebblestone offer, he replied yes. I replied, I’m not interested in those terms and he hung up the phone immediately without further conversation.

The reason I responded to the Pebblestone Financial offer was to consolidate and simplify with one payment and take advantage of the low pre-approved rate averaging 3.67%. While I’m currently paying between 10.9% and 12.9% to the credit card companies…this offer was attractive. The mailer stated in LARGE BOLD PRINT: You have been pre-approved for a Debt Consolidation Loan with a rate as low as 3.67%. The pre-approved loan amount was actually $11,500 more than my total debt consolidation.

In summary…this is definitely a “Bait and Switch” scheme in my opinion. I checked BBB comments before responding to this offer and did not see negative feedback. Now I’m seeing other very similar responses with the same “Bait and Switch” experience. Hopefully, this will help others avoid the wasted time in discovering these unethical practices of Pebblestone Financial.

The Rent-A-Tribe Scheme

In recent years, hiding behind the protection of a Native American tribe was made popular by internet payday lenders. In July 2018, Charles Hallinan, “the godfather of payday lending” was sentenced to 14 years in prison for issuing payday loans through the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation in British Columbia. In January 2018, Scott Tucker was sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for running a $3.5 billion unlawful internet payday lending enterprise while operating under the “sovereign immunity” of the Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma and the Santee Sioux Tribe of Nebraska.
