Complaint / review text:
I applied for a loan through the Lending Tree. My credit was not good enough. They asked if I wanted them to search for other companies that may have a program for me. A few days later I received multiple calls that came up unavailable. When I answered I could hear people talking in the background. I kept say hello, and nobody answered. A few hours later, I received a call from the same and when I said hello a foreign voice answered. He talked about loan programs. When he quoted Me at $200 a month on a $1000 loan I told him that was too much and I thanked him. He said he could lower the monthly fee and asked what I could afford. I said $100 a month. He said we can do that and he placed me on hold, saying he just needed his boss to approve it. He never asked for my SS# or my DOB or my bank acct.
I have been in law enforcement for 19 yrs. I know a scam when I see one. I took the opportunity to check reviews for the company. The company calls itself "LoansForEmergencies" 9600 West Bryan Weimer Rosemont IL 60018 - ph# 707 348 2761. Lending Tree is making personal information available to scam companies. I won’t stop here. I am heading to the Better Business Bureau. I’M sure I’M not the first person. I may not be the last, but it will be one more chunk taken out of Lending Tree's armor. If you are smart you will never do business with them. Even if they are legit with people with good credit, for those with bad credit, they are setting them up for further damage.
