Cancun, Q.R. — A credit company has suddenly closed its doors in Cancun after accusations of fraud.
Credit easy and fast was how Mi Crédito Mexicano attracted clients who were offered credit from 150,000 peso to 10 million peso. After numerous complaints and more than a year of operating, the Federal Attorney’s Office were able to file a federal complaint against the Transnational Enterprises of Mexico, SA de CV in the amount of 30.6 million peso.
For those seeking credit, clients were charged a 5.8 percent commission fee for “administrative expenses”, then took between one and two months to approve (or decline) an application.
In Cancun, the credit company had two office locations, one on Lopez Portillo Avenue and the other on Avenida Palenque with Calle Camarones.
The Federal Attorney’s Office said that regarding the credit company, “We also went to the National Commission for the Protection and Defense of Financial Services, but they told us that they could not do anything because the company does not provide loans.
“Nevertheless, in the announcement it clearly says we grant you the financing.”
After more than a year of demanding that something be done, the Federal Attorney’s Office proceeded to issue a certificate of requirement and federal arrest against Transnational Enterprises of Mexico SA de CV for not having made their fiscal payment.
At the moment, 40 clients in Cancun have organized legal action against the company. Since 2016, numerous incidences of the same type of fraud have been reported against Mi Crédito Mexicano in various states including Durango, Chihuahua, Campeche and Chiapas, where they also offered credit then disappeared.
In October of 2017, Profepa, in conjunction with la Fiscalía General del Estado of Chihuahua, also suspended the operations of Mi Crédito Mexicano which affected 280 clients. They also suspended the company in Durango in December of 2016.
