Budget Finance Company, Inc.

The handling of the Budget Finance Company investigation has been transferred to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio.  This transfer became necessary after the inquiry revealed that potential victims in the matter include Department of Justice employees who work and reside in the Northern District of West Virginia.  The entire file, including all documentation submitted by former customers & clients of Budget Finance, has been turned over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbus, Ohio.  Anyone with questions regarding the status of the investigation should contact the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbus at 1-866-532-9098.
