Southern United Financial rep had gotten up set with me for doing some home work. I did not get the loan due to looking into this company. I found nothing so i called the rep to ask him info about his company he began to curse @ me. This company is not licensed in the
state of Florida and is known as a Advanced Fee Broker. Also not listed
in any other form other then their web address. I can only find them
online through super pages.com. Florida Office of Financial Regulation
has no record of this company either. Don't Get scammed !

sees an advertisement for a pre-approved loan or credit card and calls
to receive an application. The company says yes, they can offer you a

end up losing their up-front fee and never hear from the company again.

* Never give your credit card account number, bank account information, or Social Security number over the telephone or
Internet unless you are familiar with the company and know hy the information is necessary.
* If you don't have the offer in hand - or confirmed in
writing - and you are asked to pay, don't do it. It's fraud
and it's against the law. If you think you've been a victim of an
advance fee loan, contact your Better Business Bureau
