I did NOT get burned by this company because of my due diligence and am trying to help anyone out that has or will run across this person/company.

I happened across a website for business funding and input my information (I don't recall the website)  That website said they were not processing any loans at this time and sent me to another website (I don't recall the website) Red Flag.  I was contacted by a Mr. Steven Sigman from Ohio at around 7:30 CST time (Red Flag) and spoke to him briefly.  After that he emailed me documentation that would have to be filled out and returned.  The document format he sent was a Serious Red Flag.  After an hour or so of looking for negative reviews about American Business Consultants, LLC I decided to Google Steven Sigman.  Holy crap!!  Mother Load.  It appears this is not his first internet rodeo.  The main thing was he is currently under investigation by the Ohio Secretary of State for, well here is the link to the news story.

http://www.woio.com/story/17403242/exclusive-steven-sigman-investigation

I wondered if this was the same Steven Sigman that had contacted me.  I went to the Ohio Secretary of State website to look up business names and the agents/individuals/incorporators.  Mr. Sigman has been a very, very busy boy starting companies.  All the signatures on all five of the scanned forms appear to be the same and verify the news story that is in the link.

In the documentation Mr. Sigman sent he referenced bizloan.info.  This is an actual website as well that says "Professional Business Funding".  All it has on the webpage is a place for you to enter contact information.

In his documentation he also references a company that he deals with by the name of "Unsecured Funding" that would actually be the loan company.  All I needed to do was go to a website for a company called www.creditchecktotal.com so I could send him a recent copy of my credit report.

According to the news story, he was ripping off investors overseas.  He may have some ties to lenders (I doubt it) or may be trying to move into identity theft (Highly Possible)  Either way, I would never sent this person an ounce of my personal information.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

I am the owner of unsecuredfinances.com

AUTHOR: mdaquino - (USA)

Hi, We used to work with Mr Steve Sigman a few years back. We no longer work with him. It had nothing to do with him, we just dont work with brokers anymore. Mr. Sigman was asking his clients to pull a soft credit pull on a company called creditchecktotal.com per my instructions. The reason why we asked brokers to pull credit check is because this is known as a soft credit pull. This means that when one of our clients pulls this report it has no effect on their credit. They would not lose points or get an extra inquiry like they would if a third party pulls the report. The reason why we have all of our clients pull soft pulls and all of our old brokers is becasue we do not want to effect their credit.

I am not aware of any wrongdoing from Mr. Sigman. He has his business and we have ours. I dont feel that asking a client to pull a soft report to keep their credit from losing points is something that is bad. In our business we have to have a certain type of credit to make it work on the private market. If we cannot help the client then at least their credit did not fall 5-15 points like it would if you went to someone who pulls hard credit pulls.

It's best if  you cannot help a client to tell them right away while keeping their score as high as possible.

 

Thank you,

Mark D'Aquino

Owner

Steven Sigman Scam Artist

AUTHOR: MichealG66 - ()

I was one of Steven Sigman's victims my wife was looking for an investment company to invest in A Little Touch of soul we talked to Steven several times. He assured us everything was on the up & up with the loan but he wanted Tracey to send him $1000 check to process the loan. He has several made up corporations. One was called Professional Funding, We lost our house, our convertible & sales for my restaurant if it really was a funding group but this is scam from Steven & his buddy. Now he's got an ice cream shop he goes from scamming Small business to selling Ice Cream. If he has not been convicted of any crime he will when he leaves this god fearing earth. He talks about religion the only place for him is he double hockey sticks shame on you Steven for stealing funds & getting peoples hopes up but Karma will get you.

Rebuttal For American Business Consultants LLC

AUTHOR: Steven Sigman - (United States of America)

Dear Ripoff Report Staff,

I am deeply moved by this clients review. There is nothing wrong with the operation American Business Consultants LLC or the way I contacted this customer, followed up with a credit application or anything else. I am a loan broker for small business loans. I have NOT been charged with anything against me EXCEPT the State of Ohio is doing an investigation to my prior internet business.

Matt at Unsecured Finances can be contacted at 1-888-294-2584 I am a registered broker for Unsecured Finances, Matt's company. He can also be reached at matt@unsecuredfinances.com

One of Unsecured Finances requirements for a loan brokered to them is a credit report with access from Credit Check Total. Their underwriting requires it. I called the client in the evening, what is wrong with working late. Otherwise, my business affairs are in order, ABC LLC is a registered LLC in Ohio and we do nothing illegal, immoral or against the law.

My other pending complaint is under investigation, if you watch the report mentioned by the customer from Channel 19 you will see it clearly that they say "Mr. Sigman has not been charged with anything or found guilty of any crime". I closed a business in 2010 Company Express due to a rash of internet credit card fraud totalling into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, this can be confirmed with Brittney Amos at Meritas Payment Solutions. She can be reached at 1-949-78-2010 Extention 113 or bamos@meritaspayment.com.

Please consider removing the complaint against American Business Consultants LLC from the Ripoff Report. I appreciate your time and consideration and would also appreciate a reply to this rebuttal inquiry.

Thank You, Steven Sigman 1-440-516-0285 ssigman@oh.rr.com or admin@abcllc.us.com

P.S This is false information:

"I happened across a website for business funding and input my information (I don't recall the website)  That website said they were not processing any loans at this time and sent me to another website (I don't recall the website) Red Flag."

-There are no web sites that say we are not submitting loans, our main web site is http://www.americanbusinessconsultantsllc.com and it has been online since February 2012.

" After that he emailed me documentation that would have to be filled out and returned.  The document format he sent was a Serious Red Flag."

- A standard application for business credit, if you would like to see a copy of my intake form, please let me know.

Our other registered DBA is Professional Business Funding, I am using that web page for leads. It is at http://bizloan.info and it's totally legit, I can and will be happy to send you a copy of our DBA registered with the State of Ohio

Can I please live in peace for a while my other investigation is PENDING and I have representation, I to this day have still NOT BEEN CHARGED with anything, I will also be happy to forward you the actual complaint filed by the State of Ohio if you would like a copy, just send me an email.

I have one more reference: I have worked with and for years affiliated with Mr. Thomas Prendergast of http://www.veretekk.com. If you would like a personal reference/review from him, Please let me know. I am not allowed to send his cell phone number out without prior permission, so I would have to let him know you are going to try to reach him if that is necessary. Tom is a good friend and I have worked with him for over 10 years. Thank you again for your consideration removing this flagrant information, Steven Sigman
