I was surprised to receive a piece of mail today from QuickBridge saying “Your New Account Has Been Established” because I never signed up for this.

QuickBridge Funding appears to be doing predatory marketing to small business owners. As a small business owner myself, this is offensive.

Update: My Big News: I Sold My Company Museum Hack!

QuickBridge is offering people a fake-looking credit card for their “working capital” offer of a loan up to $300,000.

QuickBridge Credit Card Offer

Here is a picture of the letter and fake scam credit card they sent me:

Letter I received in the mail with my info blurred.

This is very different than the type of business loans that business development companies make. These QuickBridge loans have very high-interest rates.

After some research, it looks like this company was possibly previously called BlackRock Lending Group. BlackRock Lending Group has been named by the State of Washington as “an advance fee loan scam.” However, this is all speculative information.

Letter Wording

  • Pre-qualified for up to $300,000
  • 2 easy ways to get started
  • Congratulations! Your business has been pre-qualified for our QuickBridge working capital
  • When others say no … We say YES!
