I agree with the other posters and did some quick research on this outfit. RockfordGroupLLC.com has all the indications of being a scam. Although they appear to be making thousands of outbound "cold calls" to individual investors soliciting investments of $1000 and up, they are NOT registered with the SEC, SIPC or any state securities regulator. Their business address appears to be 80 Broad Street, 5th Floor, NYC which is actually a virtual office "rent a maildrop" location. (Also located at the same address: “Hijinx Communications", advertising "Michael Jackson impersonators wanted)”) While the RockfordGroupLLC.com website purports to provide names and faces for an extensive line up of executives and staff, they all appear to be fake names and titles attached to stock photos of models. Similarly, the customer testimonials cited on their website appear to copied, verbatim, from testimonials appeaing on the websites of legitimate, well-known "structured settlement" purchasers, none of whom rely upon small individual investors for their funding. Other than the website, there is no indication that they are actually in or have anything to do with the "structured settlement purchasing" or "pre-settlement funding" business. Proceed with extreme caution before sending or investing money with them.
