Took out a $2000 loan they put a lien on my car and never heard from them, they didn’t even send bill by mail so they can charge late fees. I went to their listed so called office and they don’t even exist there is a bogus address, when finally got a hold of them only through the phone they claimed I am 58 days past due and owed them $3145.16 that’s a really nice way to scam people. They threatened to repo my car if I do not pay the total amount mentioned of $3145.16 of course they would love to repo my car because is worth $7000

When you take out a loan, it's your responsibility to know when the payments are due and how much they are.  The loaner does not have to send out a single piece of paper to the loanee.  If you are late on your payments you are late on your payments even if you never receive a bill.  What, did you think that they just gave you the money and you could just pretend that no bill= no debt?  Please.

Marlin Financial is a Boiler Room Scam operated from Northbrook Illinois

AUTHOR: JoAnna - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, September 02, 2018

Dear fellow victim:

You clearly visited one of the three advertised Marlin Financial Title Loan offices in Florida.  All three offices are fraudulent, as you discovered.  None exist.  Not one.  Marlin Financial is run by Jeremy Tolan, son of Richard Tolan, and a Florida partner named Geronima Medina. They advertise on the internet as a Title Loan Lender, although the DO NOT have any licensure to operate in this state as a Title Loan Lender.  This is obviouslt against the law, and is a Felony.  They skirt the law by owning a "Consumer Finance License", which they use to claim immunity from prosecution under the Florida Title Loan Act.  Two of Marlin Financial's offices, 175 SW 7th Street Suite 1214 Miami FL  33130, and 12250 Menta Street, Suite 203 Orlando FL 32837 are just virtual offices, where mail and calls are forwarded to their undisclosed location.  The third advertised location, 10700 North Kendall Drive, Suite 302, Miami, FL  33176 is an actual office, but not for Marlin Financial.  The Orlando office is actually home to a Gynecology and Obstetrics practice called Women's MD, LLC Rosanna Rodriguez, M.D.   Marlin Financial is only one of many, many fictitious names the Tolans and Medina operate under.  The ACTUAL LOCATION for Marlin Financial is 1500 Skokie Blvd, Northbrook, IL 60062. 

You have been defrauded, via the internet, by a boiler room scam.

The contract was INDUCED IN FRAUD.

Contact the following agencies immediately:

1) State of Florida Department of Financial Regulation (850) 487-9687 They are the governing and investigative authority which licenses Title Loan Lenders as well as Consumer Finance Lenders.  Marlin is in direct violation of Florida Statutes by operating as one while being licensed as the other.

2) State of Florida Motor Vehicle Title Fraud Unit (850) 617-2907.  Report that your title has been had a lien fraudulently placed upon it by Marlin Financial.  The form that they filed with the state requires all information to be truthful under penalty of perjury.  You'll see that Jeremy Tolan entered a Florida Address for himself: 14919 SW 87th Lane, Miami, FL 33193.  This address does not exist.  Tolan does not own any property in, nor is he located anywhere in Florida.  The Florida DMV Account Number Jeremy Tolan enters on this form is also not his own, but his father's, Richard Tolan.  

3) Contact the United States Bureau of Consumer Affairs to file a complaint for Consumer Fraud. False addresses, false licensing, all committed over the internet between Illinois and Florida makes this a Federal Crime as well.

4) Contact your US Congressman/woman.  They will file the matter with the above Bureau on your behalf, if asked.

5) Contact the FBI, and file an Internet Fraud Complaint.  This can be done over their website.

6) File a suit in your County's Circuit Civil Court, claiming Fraud and Fraud in the Inducement.  Fraud in the Inducement means they advertised, lured you in, drew up a contract, but any information they told you about themselves or their product was false or misleading.  In Marlin's case, EVERYTHING was a lie.

WHEN ENOUGH VICTIMS TAKE THESE ACTIONS, THE AUTHORITIES WILL ACT, as they have already acted in the State of California in 2011 against these people.
