Hello Mark,

It always amazes me that people fall for such scams. Unfortunately there will always be those looking for a proverbial handout and will fall prey to these claims of prosperity.

Prosperity takes work, at times hard work. The same applies to being qualified for business loans and business credit.

We specialize in obtaining funding for business owners, both new and established, including loans, credit lines, business credit cards, and much more.

Visit us at: and view the Business Finance Suite "VIP Tour" video.

This is a proven, no nonsense approach to get you the money and business credit lines that you need for your business. A system that does not fail!

This is not unusual - I have been preaching about these types of scams for well over a year. The reason they are using overseas Banks is that the US authorities will not go after them, in that case; and the coordination with agencies overseas is poor, unless you have a politically impressive name. Probably the biggest disappointment is that the Web Administrators here do not appear to care, or even listen when a complaint is made.
