May 26, 2011
Consumers have reported that they contacted JNC Services, Inc. for assistance with loan modification services and paid up to $3,300 for services. However, no loan modification was obtained and Respondent was unresponsive to requests for a refund of fees paid in connection with loan modification services.
JNC Services, Inc. has been associated with an address location of 1771 East Flamingo Road, Ste B-117, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119.
JNC Services, Inc. is not registered with the Washington State Department of Revenue, the Office of the Secretary of State to do business in Washington, or at the Department of Licensing Master Business Division.
If you feel you have been victimized by these individuals, and you reside in Washington State, you may file a complaint with the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions by contacting the Consumer Services Division at 360-902-8703, or by filing a complaint. Complaints can be filed online at www.dfi.wa.gov/cs/complaint.htm.
These kinds of contacts should also be reported to federal law enforcement authorities. You may contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation online: www.fbi.gov or by telephone: (202) 324-3000. We also suggest contacting the Federal Trade Commission online: www.ftc.gov or toll free: 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). Complainants have also had some success contacting their local telephone carrier’s nuisance department to stop calls.
