03 Feb What are the debt collection practices if I don’t pay back the loan?
Most lenders in our network typically do not consider your credit from Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion when determining if they will extend a loan offer to you. However, some lenders may use consumer credit reports or other personal information from alternative providers in order to make assess whether to extend a loan offer to you. If you obtain a loan and do not repay your loan on time, your delinquent payment may be reported to a credit bureau, which could negatively impact your credit score. It is very important with short-term loans, as with any loan, that you repay the loan on time or contact the Lender directly to agree on a modified repayment plan if this option is available.
When you sign and accept a loan offer from a lender that you are connected with, you are essentially agreeing to pay back the loan and any additional agreed upon amounts in full. Lenders will likely have different policies regarding late payment and non-payment of loans. We encourage you to thoroughly review those policies detailed in the loan documents your lender provides before electronically signing and thereby agreeing to the loan terms and those policies. It is important to note that all lenders must abide by federal and state laws and regulations regarding late payment fees and debt collection. In the event that you are unable to repay your loan, your lender may impose additional fees or charges. All lenders in our network are contractually obligated to abide by applicable federal and state laws regarding collections of past due accounts. We encourage consumers to never accept any loan that they cannot repay timely.
