ALERT: Advance Fee Loan Scam Using Liberty Mutual Name

Back to previous page

(Updated November 11, 2008)

It has come to our attention that a company calling itself "Liberty Mutual Financial Services" is using the Liberty Mutual name in violation of federal trademark laws and may be part of a loan scam. The company claims to be located at 499 Park Avenue in New York City and advertises loans on the Internet using www.LibertyMF.com and (866) 257-6175.  The company also falsely claims to be part of the Liberty Mutual Group in Boston but it is in no way associated or affiliated with the Liberty Mutual Group.  
 
Please take notice that any emails, letters or loan forms received from Liberty Mutual Financial Services may be part of an Advanced Fee Loan scam and you should first check the legitimacy of the company by contacting your local Better Business Bureau or your local consumer protection office.  If you have been the victim of an advance fee loan scam, you should contact local law enforcement.

You may also contact Liberty Mutual at abuse@LibertyMutual.com to report potentially fraudulent letters and emails received from Liberty Mutual Financial Services.
