We firmly mandate our lenders to comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Since we are not lenders, we do not attempt to collect any debts. Nevertheless, our lenders have the right to employ all legitimate methods to collect your outstanding debt if your loan remains unpaid. They are expected to follow the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act guidelines in the process. Actions regarded as violations include:
Any network lender found violating these guidelines will be immediately excluded from our network and reported to law enforcement.
The objective of the Fair Lending Act is to guarantee equitable credit access to all consumers, regardless of their age, race, creed, gender, religion, or any non-financial consideration. It ensures non-discriminatory practices and access to loans and other credit forms for consumers who meet the legal and financial criteria to obtain such credit. If you believe you have experienced discrimination, we encourage you to reach out to the Equal Opportunity and Fair Lending Office at your local Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
The Truth in Lending Act mandates that consumers receive comprehensive written information about a credit offer before they assume any responsibility or digitally sign any contract or credit extension. Lenders are obliged to disclose data regarding rates, fees, interest, and loan terms before extending any credit to consumers. Each state has its unique regulations pertaining to online personal lending, and lenders must ensure their offers comply with these rules.
Numerous states have instituted their own guidelines for the online personal lending sector to protect consumers. These state-level regulations may include controls over maximum loan amounts, fees, and interest rates, the number of available rollovers, among other things. General information about specific state regulations can be found in the Rates and Fees section of our website.
