So making on-time payments will improve your credit, which will help you qualify for better loans in the future.

THIS COMPANY IS CRAZY. I DID THE APPLICATION ONLINE JUST TO SEE THE RESULTS. THIS IS WHAT YOU GIVING: 1. Consent for them to charge your bank account to get their money back if you can't make payment putting your account in the negative screwing you up more with your bank. 2. Access to sell your personal information for profit to telemarketing companies.

THIS IS WHAT THEY OFFER YOU: 1. A loan for $300 at least WITH YOU OWING 18 PAYMENTS OF $86.00 (OVER $1,200) if you can't pay it all back.

You ought to ... be a Damn fool or a plain out drug junkie to agree to something like that. You better off going to a pawn shop to pawn something. This is the most crazy offer I've received. A company that profits off of other people's stupidity. No thanks and no thanks, SCREW YOU! More Less

I was told if I paid my loan off, I would be able to borrow more money and that didn't happen. I made my payment on time and even paid it off early. The customer service sucks. It is like talking to alien robots. You loans are "computer generated" so the reps at customer service can't give you information on the process of applying and how it is done. It took them about a month to email me a discussion as to why my loan was denied after paying them ... off right away. Then I called the number on in the email to get more information, as it said I could do, and they reps said: " I don't have access to that information, but the good news it that you can apply for another loan." NO THANKS!! You guys need to work on your customer service department. More Less

Your profit, and interest rate are way to high! You'd make more loans, with less interest!!

DO NOT apply for a loan with this outfit, even if you get a letter in the mail stating that you are pre-qualified. They just want all of your financial information on their application, then they direct you to a website that tells you, you can get an advance if you have a pension fund. Very clever and deceptive. Trust me. Don't give them your SS# or banking information. This is not a lender. They just direct you to another website after they have your information.

It was quick and easy to get approval. I was expecting more but due to my credit score I received a little loan.

This is very good as long as You do not stick to their long terms, otherwise you will end up paying 3 or 4 time of what you borrowed.

You are a scam and you stole my money I paid off in full being told I could get more if I paid this off, Your review is a lie and I have turned you in to BBB and am contemplating a police report. You owe me a refund.

The funds were available as promised, some other places have had a delay and cost me bank fees. Yes, the interest is very high but there was no penalty for early payment. The interactions with the staff, once chat and once by phone, wete pleasant and productive. I would never recommend this type of lender for long term issues, but for unexpected expenses they were just what I needed.

Online application process is easy and simple especially for returning customers. Funds were available the next day.

They were able to help when I needed it. It was extremely easy.

Professional, quick, there when I needed emergency funds. But I will pay off my loan pretty quick. It's too expensive to pay over time. Thanks!

Although the fees are high, the loan I got helped me out tremendously! When your credit isn't perfect it's places like this that helps you out and can help rebuild your credit.

0 votes

Nice for the loan of $550 but 16 payments of $119 seems extreme. I'm gogint o pay this off early and never come here again!


0 votes

The application process was easy I received funding within a short time from my acceptance. The only thing that I would recommend is that you could make changes to your payments online instead of having to call in. Other than that if I were to need another advance I would use them again.

After reading these reviews...no thank you! This company sounds real shady.

0 votes

Finance charges are outrageous. They need to have an option to pay off balance or early.

0 votes

Your rates are just too high but at the time I needed money, your company was the only one I could turn to, but now I realized I shouldn't have did that. Compared to another company I just found, I was better off applying with them as they had rates nowhere near yours and had flexible payment options. After I've paid my balance off with your company, I will not be returning.

I had two payments left and went into a debt consolidation plan because of some other loans. This company reported my balance was over $2500 (it was maybe $700 at the time), won't tell me anything about my own account over the phone, nor will they provide me with my original contract or schedule of payments. Their call center appears to be overseas and they hung up on my debt consolidation firm. Shady!

This company shady don't do it. They will get your information. I was approved and then they verified bank info. Everything accurate and they denied me. They are full of it.

I was sent an email on 12/11/15, stating that they overcharged me on the interest rate and would refund me 0.14. I talked to three different people about that. Apparently they are only refunding that due to one payment which was the last one I made. I asked what about the other payments that were paid on time! They never could explain why I couldn't be reimbursed for the other payment. I don't no recommend getting a loan from this company! They don't even deserve one star!

They had me sign a loan repayment agreement and I gave them a lot of personal information - multiple times and was still denied. They said if I signed the agreement that I had the loan ... liars ....

I had applied, but yet they had denied me. They claim that they help people with poor credit. In my case, they didn't. This is a deceptive company.
