by Structured Settlement Watchdog
NLRBFCU.org is a completely unreliable source of information about structured settlements. NLRBFCU.org epic fail defines structured settlement purchasers/ brokers as
"they can arrange for a structured settlement annuity to be setup and therefore paid to the claimant who was injured. A judge or jury gives the settled amount out of court or the award to the defendant. These are also referred to as structured settlement companies or structured settlements brokers"
Why NLRBFCU.org Gets a flaming grade of F on its explanation of structured settlement purchasers/brokers
- A structured settlement purchaser does not set up a structured settlement.
- A structured settlement annuity is not "therefore paid to the claimant". Sometimes payments are paid to a trust, such as a special needs trust or to a plaintiff or to plaintiff or claimant's distributees.
- A judge or jury does not give the settled amount to the defendant
- A judge or jury does not give an award to the defendant
- A judge or jury does not give a settled amount out of court to the defendant.
- A claimant is a term primarily used if a claim has been filed. If a lawsuit has been filed the relevant term is "plaintiff".
Value Proposition of NLRBFCU.Org So Far
- Holds Itself Out As Recommended in Meta Tags Which Affect Search Results. It seems to be recommended by itself or a personal that does not exist.
- Holds Out a Person Who Appears to Not Exist as A Reviewer. Credentials do not check out
- Changed its address from Washington DC to Savannah one week after the structured settlement watchdog exposed the fraud
- Changed the company name from one bogus insinuated affiliation to another after the structured settlement watchdog exposed the fraud.
Laura Bushnell Update
"Laura Bushnell" , who is held out as Editor in Chief for NLRBFCU and based in Boston. NLRBFCU also states that "she held senior VP level positions in corporate finance and consumer financial planning firms. A seasoned, enthusiastic financial manager with over 20 years of experience in corporate finance, annuities, structured settlements, and financial planning".
- The fraudulent claim on NLRB FCU that the purported Laura Bushnell was a member of Charles River Rotary Club has been refuted by the Charles River Rotary Club.
- You would think there would be some trace of Laura Bushnell on the Internet with those purported credentials. There is no LinkedIn profile. No articles. No other instance where any image with the name Laura Bushnell comes closes to the image held out as Laura Bushnell on the NLRBFCU website.
- Oddly enough the only place where Laura Bushnell comes up is in a purported testimonial for an anonymously registered website called Themez WP, which purportedly creates Wordpress themes. At time if publication, the Themez WP website displays Coming Soon on its Contact Us page yet has tons of purported testimonials. How is that possible? How would anyone know who they were. How would any be able to leave a testimonial?
