The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance is issuing a warning of two scams targeting consumers who use Internet-based companies to borrow money. Companies calling themselves Bennett Financial Group and Westmont Financial Group, which list their respective addresses as 10665 Bedford Street and 8401 West Dodge Road, both in Omaha, NE, offer personal loans to consumer and require up-front “collateral payments” in advance of funding a loan. The Department has verified that the companies do not have offices at the addresses listed.
