After looking into this, they have done nothing wrong. They are a legit company.
On ripoffreport.com their employee has detailed about their loan process:
Access Cash Solutions (ACS) is a cash advance, a high interest emergency alternative for those in need of money. It is Deaf owned and was started to combat the extremely high interest rates being charged by hearing businesses. The interest is high on these type of loans, but ACS provides the Deaf community someone they can communicate with and someone that can give them a lower interest rate than hearing cash advance businesses. This is NOT a scam, they are legit, licensed out of South Dakota. If any deaf individual in need of emergency money has no where else to go but a cash advance, Access Cash Solutions can help. NEVER use this type of loan if you qualify for a credit card or bank loan that could help you instead, it will be much better to use a bank.
There are also some youtube clips to show they are a legit business in the US:

Since ACS has paid the site to be on AllDeaf (read: this keeps the AD forum license and web hosting paid yearly), they are ok'ed to display their services with the site per prior negotiation with the webmaster.
Per the AD privacy rules, we will never share your email with third party associates, so you are fully safe from having your email in jeopardy in any form.

So what you're telling us is that AD has made an arrangement with this company and others allowing AD to forward emails (without AD management approval for content) from companies to AD members??
That just doesn't sound right. If this was the case I'm sure we'd all be getting flooded with junk adverts ... and this isn't the case.
Still feels "wrong" to me ... sorry.
Also - if I turn off accepting emails from admin to prevent junk email- how the heck would Alex or the mods etc contact me if they needed to .... wouldn't that turn off ALL Admin emails, not just "bulk emailings" like this advert?
