Authorities are warning residents about a Milwaukee company that claims to provide loans to help people pay their bills but is really scamming applicants out of $20 fees.
The company, My Bill Assist, offers people up to $1,500 in loans for rent, car payments, and utility and cellphone bills. Applicants have to pay only an application fee of $20 and a membership fee of $20 for the bill assistance program and wait for the check to show up. Some applicants were told they wouldn't even have to pay back the loan, which was to come from the federal government.
