- You had a recent negative event, such as bankruptcy, collection accounts, liens, repossession, or judgements against you.
- You have poor repayment history, your bills are in collection, or you have recently bounced checks.
- Lenders may only accept limited application from certain geographic areas or in a given time frame.
If you feel you are a qualified applicant and wish to find another loan option, there are other lenders you can consider.
We work to match you with lenders that consider applications from people with lower credit ratings... to help you get the cash you need with affordable monthly payments.
A second loan application in a short amount of time rarely hurts your credit score. Credit bureaus count credit inquiries that occur within 14-15 days of each other as a single inquiry.
