Everyone is aware by now Mr. Mark E. Shelton is the President of Financial Resources Unlimited, Inc. along with all alleged-potential aliases: Supreme Mailing, Inc., SME, FRU, Financial Resources. This is a one year old corporation. The Illinois license information is up to date as of November 11, 2002. License renewal is due November 11, 2003, this year. This type of corporation is a Domestic BCA, under file number: 61949003. The official Entity Name: Financial Resources Unlimited, Inc. The business incorporation date: December 4, 2001.

Mr. Shelton has an Agent. An Agent can be a customer service contact, lawyer or other management related staff member, according to the Corporate License Department. This agent is a possible contact for a REFUND. The Agents Name is Mr. Micheal R. Koziol located at 6534 South Bentley, Willowbrook, Illinois, 60527. Maybe he is the one collecting from all of those drop boxes, it's possible.

Mr. Shelton has yet another address, which might just be more than a drop-box: 3012 Sunnyside Avenue, Westchester, Illinois, 60154. I have not tried this contact information.

For consumers who have lost their hard earned investments, and have not been given effective contact information, you can file a lawsuit to collect your claim/refund. This does not exclude people that were told "Be Patient" or were turned down. When you have those papers served for your Court filing, they can be served to Mr. Shelton and Mr. Koziol at the addresses posted.


If these addresses are ineffective contact Illinois Secretary of State Mr. Jesse White. The State Secretary is a part of the Corporate Licensing Department of Illinois.

You can reveiw some of this information yourself. The Secretary of State is completely unaware, and imagines this corporation remains in good standing. Bear in mind, the Secretary is not a law enforcement ruling entity. It would be a waste of time to expect resolution from them. I am still in the process of updating and informing them about the situation.

The Secretary of State has the authority to locate the correct address information, with all or any Statute of Limitations considered, and a consumers inability to serve papers, with the current information posted.

I SPOKE DIRECTLY to the Corporated Licensing Department, and know this information is 100% ACCURATE AND VALID. This information was also submitted by Mr. Shelton and Mr. Koziol to the licensing department, in order to receive an actual license. It is doubtful they would provide their home addresses, knowing this information is viewed by the world wide web.

Be prepared for the possibility they have moved to another location. You can still try for those refunds.

Serve those papers through the Secretary of State, and under legal consultation of an Attorney.

Some consumers may consider forming a Class Action Lawsuit.
