Are CMG Group LLC licensed lenders. I found a CMG group LLC address in Nevada, is this correct?

They put $300.00 in my account that I did not authorize and they have taken out $180.00.

I filed a complaint with my Attorney General in PA and also the AG in Nevada.

Does anyone have anymore info on them??

I did a search on the google box and found these threads on CMG Group. n/about25972.html westburyventures.html

Go to your bank and explain to the supervisor that you never authorized CMG Group to debit money from your account. After you have filed the dispute papers, they will verify the details with CMG and get your money back

I am having the same problem. They put $200 in my account and have so far taken out two payments of $60. I have no problem paying back a loan but I didn't receive any emails of when they were taking payments out and how much. What did the AG for Pennsylvania say? Please contact me atemail address removed as per forum rules - Mike. I look forward to hearing from you.

I recently tried to get CMG Group payday loans online, and of course to even get a quote on how much they can give you, you have to put in all your info. I finally decided not to do one, cuz they couldn't give me the amount I needed. But somehow today my bank account has $300 from the CMG group. I dont have any contact info for this company, I dont even remember seeing this company name anywhere, so it must have been under some other payday loan site. I never signed anything or got a promissary note. It worries me though that all those online companies make you give your account info and all that stuff before you even agree to anything. I dont know what to do about all this. How do I contact them to clear this up?

I took out $200 CMG Group loans from CMG in January. I never got anything in writing stating how much they would be taking out or for how long. They ended up taking $60 out of my account 6 times. I finally had to go to my bank and stop the withdrawals. Then they started calling me at work, leaving messages for "me or my attorney" to call them back. The caller always had a gruff voice, like they were trying to intiidate me. Finally they turned me over to National Credit Adjusters. They are just as bad. They still call me every day, and at one point they were even calling my friend. I must have listed her as a reference. They told her I had written a bad check to someone. I still have never gotten anything in writing.

I filed a complaint on CMG with the Iowa Attorney General's Office and also the FTC. National Credit Adjusters reported me to the credit bureau saying I owed $320. So that means they think I am going to pay back $680 for a $200 loan. Seems a little steep to me. It is illegal to charge that much interest.

Go to your attorney generals website and file a complaint. I know the guy from my AG's office was working on it because he left me a message at work.

Doesn't this just make you want to scream!!
