Henson said, "These 'flim- flammers' are preying par- ticularly on the so-called 8a contractors, small firms owned by economically or socially disadvantaged persons bidding on government contracts, and procurement management personnel on my staff have been told to alert the contractors to this illegal and unauthorized scheme." SBA does not license or ap- prove loan application packaging consultants; does not sell surplus property over the phone, and has received com- plaints about both types of flim- flam operators from nearly every state. Individuals claiming to have "inside pull" at the Agency have been ap- newspaper advertisements with offers to prepare, submit, and get approval of SBA loan ap- plications for fees sometimes ranging in the thousands of dollars. Many of these applications are never submitted to SBA. The fiim-flammer's victim is told that the loan application has been turned down by SBA, and the flim-flammer's fee is non- refundable. "Individuals claiming to have special influence in obtaining loans are springing up all over the country," Henson said. "Members of the public should know that they do not need this kind of help to apply for an SBA loan, and that none of these persons has any influence over SBA loan officers who consider loan applications."
