How could it be that Structured Settlement Quotes ("SSQ"), an entity that advertises that it " is America's #1 Structured Settlement Marketplace having served over 11,000 customers and transacted more than $500 million in payments since 2007, and counting" and lists a solitary Hartford, CT address, is nowhere to be found, when "the rubber hit the road? (emphasis added)
SSQ is a named defendant in a lawsuit which also names Genex Capital and Genex Strategies, Inc.
As part of its motion for limited discovery filed last week, Woodbridge sought leave to conduct limited depositions to assure proper service over SSQ (which the Connecticut District Court granted) stating:
"Plaintiff has been attempting to effectuate service upon Defendant Structured Settlement Quotes ("SSQ"), thus far without success. This entity is not registered with the Connecticut Secretary of State. It is, however, registered with the Connecticut Better Business Bureau ("BBB"), and lists its address as 100 Pearl Street, 14th Floor, Hartford, Connecticut. See Exh. A (copy of that entity's BBB's webpage). Upon information and belief, 100 Pearl Street is the location for a Regus Business Center, a company which, according to its website, offers fully furnished, staffed and equipped offices on a temporary basis. When Plaintiff engaged a Marshal to serve SSQ at that address, he was told that while representatives of SSQ had used its conference room in the past, the entity was not located at that address" (emphasis added).

So where is SSQ located and why isn't that address shown on its website, the website that solicits American consumers and claims to have done so much business?
Woodbridge alleged in its amended complaint that "SSQ is nothing more than a fraudulent and deceptive scheme designed to mislead and deceive consumers and benefit certain companies and persons, and in particular Genex Capital and persons and companies affiliated with Genex Capital".
