Amlin Financial Group appears to have connections with Monington Lending Group from Edmonton, Alberta.

As of August 26, 2015: Consumers have contacted the BBB to allege that this company asked them to pay an insurance fee of 10 per cent of the total amount of requested loan. This request was made prior to the client receiving the loan.

Consumer Protection BC advises consumers that in BC, it is illegal for a loan company to charge any advanced fee for a loan. All fees should be included in the borrowing cost of a loan. For more information please visit the Consumer Protection BC website at: www.consumerprotectionbc.ca

This company's website requests applicants' date of birth and Social Insurance Number on the application form, which is not encrypted. Any information transmitted on this form could be intercepted, which may result in identity theft.

This business does not have a business license issued buy the City Hall of Richmond. The City Hall doesn't have this company's name on its files and the address suite 300 - 5811 Cooney Road Richmon,BC seems to be invalid.

BBB file opened: 25/08/2015
