The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions is warning consumers to verify the license of any lending professional they are considering doing business with to avoid becoming victims of potential scams.

National Lending Group may be conducting a loan scam. National Lending Group is using the website http://www.nationallg.com. They have a listed address of:

1111 E Main Street
Richmond, VA 23219

This does not appear to be a valid address for National Lending Group. Neither the Washington State Department of Revenue nor the Office of the Secretary of State shows that National Lending Group is authorized to do business in Washington. The company is not licensed by the Department of Financial Institutions.
