At the time I was working two jobs but I was still barely able to afford my basic necessities. I didn’t have savings of any kind in bank account, and suddenly the transmission in my car stopped working properly. I was told by the mechanic I took the car to that it would cost at least $600 to do all of the necessary repairs. Because I didn’t have any money saved up and I needed to get to work the next day, I applied for a payday loan for $600.
To repay any loan in equal monthly instalments or EMIs, one should have a sufficient income that even after paying for the EMI, there would be enough left for other necessities such as rent, food, bills, clothes and transportation. In general, the ratio of the total monthly EMIs should not exceed 35% of the monthly income, so that there is enough left for other things. Even if you are in high income range, your fixed monthly obligations should not be in excess of 60% of your in hand monthly income.
Horrible! I think this is a scam. I should've known better and looked them up. I gave them all my banking info and personal info. when I applied. They said they would get back to me in 24 hrs. It's been almost 7 days now. There is no human being who answers their 800 number it just says to email them. I've sent numerous emails with no response. I put fraud alerts on my credit reports in fear they are going to do something with my personal info. Going down tomorrow to close my bank acct so they can't fraudulent take money from my acct. stay away from this lender!
Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.
