Predatory Loan so Pay off Fast
NobodysFool99 Borrower

This loan is Predatory. If you don't plan on paying it off in 6 or less months, don't get it. If you are falling into some lump sum within that time, then go for it. I did.

It was so funny. As soon as I went online and paid the entire balance off, a representative called me immediately, like if it was any of her business, and asked me how did I pay it off. Lol. I told her I ran an escort service. You should have heard the silence! Point is, pay of early or pay a couple hundred more than the amount owed each month to get that balance down. Don't pay the minimum. That's what they are banking on. Be me!!!

The Interest is a Killer
Ghostofalegend Borrower

If they explained the interest rate propely and the repayment Math upfront they would lose alot of business. Their interest rate is a daily interest rate so if you took a loan of 10,000. at a interest of 25% and lets say your monthly payment is to be $250. When you make your monthly payment $212 goes towards your interest and $38 goes towards your balance. The only way to get out of your loans fast with this company is to never miss a payment and always pay more than your standard monthly payments. The loan math is [Loan Amount] (APR%/365)X{days between payments} = interest.

Combine credit cards & cover dental care
Shyan2 Borrower

I also wanted money to cover dental expenses. I asked for $12,000 but was told I only qualify for $9,200. At least it paid off my cards so I can shut them down. Everyone was very friendly.

Good luck if you miss a payment.
Cathy9775 Borrower

I have been a customer with One Main for over 20 years, on and off. I took out my last loan with them approximately 2 years ago. None of my payments were significantly late. For one thing you can not change your payment date so I was forced to pay them at the end of the month rather than the beginning. As soon as it is a day past the due date the calls begin, often several times a day from multiple numbers. In Dec 2018, my bank was was cloned and someone took over $300 out of my checking account. Due to this I was unable to make my payment with One Main until well after the 30 day mark which resulted in it being reported to the credit bureau. I waited over a year and made my payments on time every month in hopes of being able to show the company this was a one time blemish. I recently emailed thier executive team and asked for this mark to be removed in light of the circumstances surrounding the singular late payment. I was told it was reported accurately and there is nothing they can do. 

So basically, if you make every payment on time and have been a loyal customer it makes no difference. One late payment or 12 late payments all look the same on your credit report. It shows to other creditors that you are a financial risk. I will be paying off this loan very soon and will never take out a loan with this company again. Very disappointed in this especially since I have borrowed and repaid several loans with them.
