Information from unsecured loans lender regarding lead generators:
We have so many different lead sources. I have seen a few listed on here as I read the posts. Edirex, Lendio, Buyerzone, meridian, to name a few off the top of my head. With out a specific call it would be hard to isolate the actual source.
We purchase live transfers so yes the lead gen company calls and get the merchant on the phone and then transfers the interested merchant over to us.
Not sure what you mean by spoofed number so I will take the definition from the internet to make sure we are both on the same page.
Caller ID spoofing is a service that allows a caller to masquerade as someone else by falsifying the number that appears on the recipient's caller ID display.
We do not masquerade as someone else or falsify any numbers that appear on Caller ID. We do have multiple area codes in multiple states through VOIP provider but they are our numbers that we call out and receive calls on. We never hide this number or falsify it.
We do not pay to play with the BBB. BBB is a racket that takes money from companies to make them appear clean.
Once a merchant tells us they are not interested we put them on our internal do not call list that is what we are required to do by law which we adhere to.
As for the lead generators we get live transfers if someone comes through to us they have shown interest. The first question we ask is "I understand you are interested in capital" If the merchants says no then we get refunded for the lead and never call again, and if they say yes then they are a interested lead that we have paid for so we will call that lead daily to get documents back to proceed with funding before one of our competitors picks them up.
Simple economics will weed out bad lead gen. If they are bogus and unreliable then we will not be able to fund any of the leads they send and we will stop buying their leads.
