We regularly receive inquiries from people trying to find The Associates, a finance company which consisted of various companies including "Associates Housing", "Associates Finance", "Associates Financial Services" and "Associates Home Equity Service Inc." (formerly known as Ford Consumer Finance Co. Inc.).

HSH Associates has no connection to any of those companies -- these companies were purchased by an arm of Citibank years ago.
