In a nutshell, this may imply that you are not efficient in your money management skills or you are deliberately getting more debts without any conscious effort to deal with what you already owe other creditors. This paints a very risky picture and your credit rating has to be taken a notch lower so that subsequent creditors can be aware of the looming risks.
It’s important for borrowers to understand credit checks because, generally, each time a lender or financial institution checks your credit, your score is actually lowered. It doesn’t seem fair, does it? You need to borrow money, but to borrow money, a lender checks your credit—which can ding your credit score, making it harder to borrow. What’s up with that?
At OppLoans, we provide access to loans that take into account a number of factors outside of your credit score. These include proof of regular employment for at least the past two months, and a traditional bank account in your name with at least 90 days of history. This—along with utilizing alternative credit data—all adds up to a picture of your ability to repay your loan.
We adhere to the principles of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Because we may report your payment history to one or more credit bureaus, late or non-payment of your loan may negatively impact your credit rating. If you fail to repay your loan in accordance with its terms, we may place your loan with or sell your loan to a third-party collection agency or other company that acquires and/or collects delinquent consumer debt.
