Curtis Brown USA, also known as Tycoon Group LLC located in either Long Beach or Beverly Hills CA is a shell firm setup to commit fraud by obtaining funds in exchange for services rendered or for loans that do not exist.
Curtis Brown goes by different names and operates in a virtual manner to appear as if the company is working for you.  Tycoon Group / Curtis Brown USA will say that funds have been obtained via their private investors -however they will require funds up front in order for you to access the money.  They operate through various methods however they will never deliver the loan -nor will they refund money even with their money-back-guarantee.

We were trying to obtain approximately 3 million dollars in funding, and Tycoon Group was "able to raise" 1.4 million, which was $400k short of our watermark so we received nothing.  After the failure were told by Curtis that he would be able to raise the money at a later date (almost guaranteed) -and that these types of loans always fail at first attempt.  
When the time came to try again for the loan, we were told that the investors were unsure because of the upcoming election and that we needed to wait a 6 more weeks.  After that time had passed, we were informed by "Malou" that they were closing their doors.
I contacted them today and I was told that the business was closed and the firm was now called: curtisbrownusa - good bye and good luck.
Curtis was wired money across State lines in order for him to procure this funding for us and he has not delivered as promised.

BYL Group,

Don't worry about Curtis Brown and his extortion threats of a lawsuit he doesn't have a claim. You printed the truth and your experience. That is NOT defamation or slander. Curtis Brown tries to play lawyer and use intimidation. He tried it with me and quickly learned it doesn't work.

You sent him money up front for a loan for your business. Requiring money up front in order to obtain a loan is illegal. Curtis Brown will claim he was getting investors to invest. Of course these investors never existed, but his claim he was only getting investors to invest won't work. You were obtaining a loan by legal definition. The investors put up money which must be re-paid. That is a loan.

You sent Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC $5,000.00 for a loan and received no services or loan. However, even though you received no services from Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC, Curtis Brown will not refund your money. That is illegal.

Just email me a copy of the bank wire in the amount of $5,000.00 you sent you sent Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC and I have a federal prosecutor that will take it from there.

Another victim of Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC. and of Curtis Brown USA, LLC.

AUTHOR: chopperwerks - (United States of America)

How about that Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC./ Curtis Brown USA, LLC. another one of your innocent victims you swindled money from. 

I'm sure that the current victims who have posted on The Rip Off Report are just the tip of the iceberg of people Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC. and Curtis Brown USA, LLC have committed fraud against.

Hey Curtis Brown, are you going to falsely claim this latest poster is a criminal also to discredit him or threaten him with extortion like a lawsuit ? Or are you going to post as another alias telling us what a great scammer, oops, I mean, great guy Curtis Brown is ?

Hey Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC. and Curtis Brown USA, LLC., I'm still waiting to be served for this lawsuit you have claimed for the last 3 months you are going to file. 

Of course, filing lawsuits (especially frivolous ones) are expensive and you are probably watching your budget right now due to the fact :

a. Your business closed it's doors and you are no longer in business. Therefore no income.

b. You are under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for a complaint filed against you.

c. Criminal charges for fraud are being pursued against you. So now you have to retain a criminal 
    attorney to address any charges which should be coming your way.

d. The California Better Business Bureau revoked your business rating.

e. Any professional licenses you now hold (if any) if convicted will be revoked by California.

Since you don't have a business and most likely don't have any clients after anyone reading The Rip Off Report, I'm willing to bet you, that you don't have enough money to hire a lawn service.

The facts posted on The Rip Off Report clearly show, Curtis Brown of Tycoon Group, LLC. and Curtis Brown USA, LLC. will lie, commit fraud, misrepresent, and swindle anyone sending him money for his phony bogus services. Just read what is posted on the The Rip Off Report from some of his victims.

Revision of statement

AUTHOR: BYL Group - (United States of America)

The original posting was posted as a matter of opinion from the events that transpired over the past several months and other existing cases that may or may not have the same matter of opinion.

The original statement was not to charge any person with a crime, or with having been indicted, convicted, or punished for crime, nor to inflict harm.

Our company lost a large amount of money that did not come easy.  Our opinions stem from the emotion of losing a business and the suffering that goes with it.  Others may have had success with this firm, we don't know.  We are willing to make things right.
