Structuredsettlement-quotes(dot)com (SSQ), a member of Vancouver Canada based Genex Capital, with a mailbox address in CT, is misclassified on Yelp in the Insurance category. A look on the convenient website of the CT Department of insurance shows no insurance license for Genex Capital. Consumers reviewing Structured Settlement Quotes on Yelp or considering doing business with the company should be aware of this misclassification.
Genex Capital tried to conceal its ownership of SSQ from consumers from May 2012 until June 2015, when a settlement was reached in a lawsuit against it filed by Woodbridge Structured Funding. During the period of concealment, from July 2012, SSQ was used as a brand jacking platform, targeting Genex Capital competitors, paving the way for brand jacking platforms like Einstein Structured Settlements which was introduced in October 2012. In one notable example Genex, via SSQ posted reviews of Woodbridge which was suing it and JG Wentworth in which hundreds of spammy links were used to promote the review pages. Genex, via SSQ, or through its SEOs, also used the Yelp page in question to link to the suspect review pages on its site. Genex, via SSQ also continued to promote David Springer, the Mount Airy Faker's deposition admitted alias, James Spelling, in its "reviews", without disclosing the alias, and was the first and only company that listed David Springer's James Goldstein alias that was also suspected to be fake, but proven by the admission of Springer during Springer's deposition taken in June 2013 by Woodbridge.
