Just like the many going through the same issue with CIG, the have taken my $3500 and promising to help me purchase a home. I wire transfered to them and of course that is when the nightmare begun!!! After I sent them the money, it was really difficult to get anyone on the phone, they would keep me on hold for 15-20 mins then hung up. They kept making bogus offers that were never gonna go through and then when I realized what was going on and ask for my money back, they kept giving me excuse after excuse. I am still waiting on my refund since October 9th, 2012. They then started using the Sandy Storm excuse, before it was the attorney office that still didn't release my file and as of yesterday, their response to the BBB complaint I made is "it seems there has been some theft of checks from our office and someone has been going around trying to cash them. Until this matter is resolved, the bank has frozen all the accounts to prevent further fradulent activity. We hope to have this matter resolved as quickly as possible".
I spoke to NY state attorney office and they told me to send in my report (I had called a few different places before I got the right location), I had to download the form from their website, complete it and mail it in yesterday since I am in Florida but they said if you are local you can bring it in. The New York State Attorney office yesterday told me that I still must notify my State Attorney office here in Florida where I live. I just left a message for the State Attorney office here and once they call me back and direct me on how to proceed making the report I will do so. Here is the link to the form that you must complete and mail in (copy and paste in browser)...there address is on the form, they said to send it in as soon as possible:
