International Lending GroupPheonix phoeniz, Arizona United States of America
We were introduced to International Lending Group LLC, RJ Joksch, aka Ralph "RJ" Joksch, Bill Taugher, Bob Taugher, FindFunds@netscape.com, by a broker we worked with in early 2009. They sent us out a LOI on our hotel refinance. We are a company that has hotels nationwide. We had sent them in all our financial information, appraisal, signatory information, taxes you name it. It was a complete package that was created by our local bank here in Fort Worth. They claimed to have completed multiple hospitality financing all over the planet. Along with our Term sheet was a request for a $45,000.00 fee for Due Diligence. We questioned the need for this with RJ on the phone meeting. He said it was for a sight visitation and reorder of our appraisal. We were asking for $23,000,000 and the hotel had appraised at $71,000,000 so a 35% LTV overall with his fees included. He said we would gain a 10 year term at 6.5%. And he went into how he was not responsible for compensating our broker that brought him the deal. That he only collected the charges due to his company and we would need to pay our broker that brought International Lending Group to us ourselves. We had no problem doing this. And after checking his "references" we sent in the Due Dilligence fee.
After a week went by following the transfer of our upfront fees. We never got another call back from International Lending or RJ or anyone. I had one of our employees call into International Lending's phone acting as a borrower from his private cell. And they answered the call and tried to started to do the same format to our employee asking for a Due dilligence fee of $35,000. International had no idea this was just us trying to see if they did indeed dissappear.
To date we have not heard anything from International on our loan request , No site visit has been performed. We called the lead bank that was identified on the LOI/ Term sheet provided to us by International Lending Group LLC and that bank does not exist. We have tried numerous occasions to contact International and RJ and anyone at that office. They refuse to take any of our call or return our messages. We are having the Attorney General of Arizona look into this on our behalf as the amount exceeds the minimum for a felony.
DO NOT USE THESE GUYS IN ANYWAY SHAPE OR FORM! They are nothing but fake lenders that produce bogus offers just to sucker you into giving them upfront "Due Dilligence" money. They are not lenders and will never take care of your loan.
