The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance is issuing a warning of yet another scam targeting consumers who use Internet-based companies to borrow money. This time, a company calling itself Penbrook Financial Group, which lists its address as 6910 Pacific Street, Omaha, NE, offers personal loans to consumers and requires up-front "collateral payments" in advance of funding a loan. In this case, the company required a borrower to make four monthly payments totaling $2,460 prior to securing the loan. The Department has verified that the company does not have an office at the address listed.
