Applied for a 5k personal loan for debt consolidation because I seen on CK that the odds where above excellent. My credit was about 615 since running it a bunch of times to get a car. So I was shooting for the stars with this one. So, I put in my info and they approved me in like 30 seconds. They gave me the option of two loans one 9k secures with a car title as colladaral or a 6k unsecured loan with just proof of income and residency. I submitted a pdf of my check stub and ID and was scheduled for a meeting in store the very next day. Although still skeptical, I went anyway. Before arriving I made sure I had all paper work they needed to make this transition go as smoothly as possible. They said all I needed was a checking information that had my account number and actual name on it. I don’t use checks so I asked if I could print out something from my only banking and they approved me to do so. Once I went over apr and length of term the rep gave me a few payment options. I could either receive the money in my account by the next day in full or they could sum up all the bills that I have and pay them off personally. I of course opted for the lump sum deposited into my account. I also was offered insurance on the loan. One for just Incase I lost my job and one just Incase I die. I think that was great especially for no more that $10 more on the loan. After signing the papers I was out the door and not even 24hrs later ... I had a $6k deposited with no hassle. EASY BREEZY. 


-term is a long term (over 2 years) 

-APR RATE is high for bad credit (over 15%) 

-if you fulfill the full term you will ultimately end up paying back double of what you borrowed :-(


-Early pay offs with no penalties 

-Early pay offs avoid paying double of what you borrrowed 

-Early pay offs gets you cash back 

-can pay to the principal and to get APR. 

-get insurance on loan for any misshaps 

-get money to bank account in under 24hrs 

-APR rate is high but still lower than a lot of credit cards. 

-reports to all 3 credit bureaus 

-monthly is affordable 

-monthly payment can be structured how ever you want them to. 

So in the end you have to weight the pros and cons to determine if it’s worth it for you.

Loan sharks
pyjones123 Borrower

My parents were in their eighties I had no idea they had taken out loans with this company when my father died I learned the truth of everything my father had taken out a $4000 loan when my father tried to pay the loan off early the company would call my father and tell him don't do that it's OK just make your regular monthly payment when my father died I found out that he owed these people over $12000 from a $4000 loan I took over the loan and I just began to pay them they call my mother and was very rude to her and asked her why are you wasting your money you can save this just pay the regular payment I end up paying off the loan I called them and told them that they should be ashamed of themselves that they took advantage of individuals in their eighties they had even threaten to garnish my mother's social security and my father's pension which they cannot do and then they even threatened to put a lien on my mother's home these people are evil and they are loan sharks everyone then gives them a good rating is usually because they have bad credit and they have no other options but in a few months when you see you over $10000 on a 4 or 5000 loan you will see the evil in these individuals all they need is a mafia label and a gun.

I haven’t had any problems at all with my loan. Agents are always helpful and friendly. I would happily apply for another loan if needed in the future.

These people are criminals
kenya1019 Borrower

I had a loan with these people.  I had a series of unfortunate events that caused me to get behind 2 payments.  These people took all the money out of my savings account, checking account, my business account then had the nerve to send me a 1099 for the remaining $400 that they didnt get from my accounts.  Do not get a loan through these people.  The interest rate is super high and they are like rats when it comes to getting the money you owe them.
