Too good to be true

Updated by user Sep 16, 2018

I would like to clarify my post. I have no evidence that this is a scam but after reading other reviews and speaking to other people in the industry I suspect that there is a high probability that NFC will take a large fee upfront and not provide the loan promised.

My preference is to deal with lenders that don't request such high fees upfront. You make up your own mind.

Original review Sep 11, 2018
I posted a request for assistance with a commercial deal and a broker John Leighton in Sydney responded. He then suggested using National Commercial Funding for a construction loan and offered an interest rate that us too good to be true. Requested $8,800 upfront for due diligence and I knew straight away that this is a scam. How do we put these people in jail where they belong.

NCF Commercial Lied to us

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I live in India - i was looking for a loan for a property for my daughter whilst she lived in Australia. I found NCF Commercial and followed their procedures for a loan. Mr Ackerman was initially very helpful and said there would not be any issues with the loan amount. Once we paid the fees Mr Ackerman then changed completely. He denied the loan even though we had the equity. He kept our fees (which were large) and I am happy someone is reporting what this man is doing. My advice - DO NOT deal with Mr Ackerman or his company NCF Commercial - they appear to be a scam. Name supplied to others - we were lied to by Emil Ackerman.

We had the same problem and believe we were robbed by Mr Ackerman and his Company NCF Commercial.

We are also happy to see reports about this company going up on the web.

I would never deal with this man again - he is a thief

The apology is from Ackerman the thief - just like his dog brother Marius. Same scams same fraud. Just a complete dog and his mate Pyke-Nott is a thug.

NCF Financial Lending

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
NCF Financial Services is actually the same company as NCF Commercial Lending who are known to use deceitful and fraudulent methods to take clients money. These companies are run by Emil Ackerman and John Pyke-Nott both of these men openly use fraud to run an advance fee fraud. Do not under any circumstance pay these fraudsters any money until you have a GUARANTEE that you will get the loan. They give conditional approval - demand massive fees then on the same financials as they gave the Conditional Approval they reject the loan. There is no refund of the fees you have paid. We believe they never intended to give certain loans - it is a deliberate and intentional scam to defraud clients. Do not believe ONE WORD that comes from Emil Ackerman - he uses every slimy trick under the sun to keep your money illegally including threats and abuse. You have been warned - these guys are of course located on the GOLD COAST - the fraud capitol of Australia. ADVANCED FEE FRAUD run by Ackerman - sounds familiar. Emil's brother ran exactly the same fraud and was convicted of it.

We applied for a loan and were treated the same.

These people are very dishonest and when we complained they threatened us.

Do not deal with Mr Emil Ackerman - he is dishonest and threatened us when we complained.

I agree completely with the previous posts - this company is not legitimate - IT IS A SCAM.

Guest

Agree with the above, be warned and stay clear.

Guest

We also got scammed by these so called lenders.

It is just a complete scam.

You have been warned

No point complaining to them - they will just threaten you.

Uses fraud and misleading and deeptive practices to obtain advance fees

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
NCF Commercial Lending from the Gold Coast in Australia and run by Emil Ackerman and john Pyke-Nott use fraud and deceptive and misleading practices to obtain advance fees. These guys are notorious for granting CONDITIONAL APPROVAL on a loan then demand excessive fees to fulfil the loan. On the same information used to grant CONDITIONAL APPROVAL they then deny the loan and keep the fees. This has happened to many people and it IS FRAUD. Contact us at ncfscam@***.ru and join us in having these MEN charged with fraud - have enough evidence and people are coming forward saying this has been an ongoing issue for a long time. The Gold Coast is home to most of Australia's confidence tricksters and conmen.

These liars do not even have a proper office- all fraud. You have been warned

Guest

They are still doing the same thing. Offering loans they have no money to give.

Just scam artists. Ackerman is a con man like his brother Marius - same scam same family.

Career criminals defrauding people and protects himself by threatening anyone who complains. Just a DOG.

Carmalita Met

Couldn't agree more - we got SCAMMED by this man Emil Ackerman. Offered a loan asked for big up front fees said all would be good - then denied the loan.

He is a liar and anyone who deals with this thieving SLUG needs to be aware he has a long history of deceit. Check him out on the web - just a low life confidence trickster.

Guest

Ackerman and his dog Pyke-Nott are still just career thieves. Nothing lower in life than a fraudster and conman - Emil and Pyke-Nott are both.

Disgraceful cowards. I rang the guy on 040086**** - he had an interesting story to tell about Ackerman and his brother Marius.

Guest

We also have same problem.

NCF offered loan - all good - paid fees - then they make up story that is not true and refuse our loan.

We ring Mr Ackerman and he laugh at us.

He keep our money.

This man and this company are very BAD.

We want to help show everyone that this company is complete SCAM. Emil Ackerman is a very dishonest man. We have contacted the man the phone number below - he said nothing but bad things about NCF Commercial Lending and Emil Ackerman.

Deal with Ackerman and you will be ripped off - just like his brother Marius Ackerman - offering loans he has no money for. Criminals and confidence tricksters.

Guest

Professional comments from Emil Ackerman because someone complained about how he DEFRAUDED them and provided PROOF.

Emil Ackerman - what a complete *** and COWARD.

Anyone dealing with these thieves ring the number EMIL ACKERMAN the thief provided. Sure the guy is happy to tell you that NCF Commercial Lending uses FRAUD to rip people off.

Ackerman - check out Marius Ackerman - runs in the family - thieves and cowards.

Guest

Emil is that *** that he puts up an apology under a false name but puts the phone number so people can ring the person.

ANYONE wanting to deal with NCF ring the number provide by EMIL ACKERMAN professional conman and get an opinion.

Thanks EMIL you thief and coward.

Where is your partner John ***kwit-Pyke - busy defrauding rent boys.

You are close to the most *** FRAUDSTER we have run across.

Give the phone number of people you have defrauded and think that is a threat - you are a complete *** EMIL the thief Ackerman. Anyone wants the story - RING THE NUMBER PROVIDED BY EMIL the thief ACKERMAN

Guest

Because people expose career criminals and professional conmen this is the response.

Well done EMIL ACKERMAN and JOHN PYKE-NOTT

Anyone considering doing business with these criminals are advised to ring the person EMIL put up on this page - sure they will tell you all about the criminal behaviour of NCF COMMERCIAL>

This is the response from a supposed professional company NCF COMMERCIAL LENDING in Queensland - says a lot about the owners Emil Ackerman and John Pyke-Nott- what it says are that they are professional criminals and fraudsters and their response to any complaints is THREAT after THREAT.

Unfortunately for you EMIL ACKERMAN coward and thief, some people are not scared of your threats or rubbish you put up about your clients who complain about being defrauded.

BRING IT ON EMIL - you are just another thief and coward who has been exposed and is trying every threat to get people to back off. GUTLESS THIEF AND FRAUDSTER exposed big time. Also anyone can ring the phone number Ackerman supplied - sure the guy is happy to tell you how NCF defrauded them

Guest

Yes - ring the number and ask - Emil Ackerman is a thief and a liar.

Ring the number - sure the gut is VERY happy to tell you how EMIL ACKERMAN has defrauded him.

Ackerman is a thief and a criminal -

Any doubts - RING or EMAIL and find out.

NCF Financial - career conmen and thieves.

Bring it on Emil you low life thief and conman. You can't even ring the number yourself because you are a coward. You defraud people then try this *** - learnt well from your brother Marius the professional conman.
