Beware of this place!!’ Don’t do business with them . I was sick with coronavirus for almost a month and this lady called and harassed me on the phone because I wouldn’t let them run my credit and redo my loan . I was behind and the results.... they report me and didn’t even have the common courtesy to note due to the coronavirus... I wish I would’ve never dealt with them . This is the only creditor that’s being hateful during this coronavirus pandemic.....

This place really reported me as being late and only because of the covid -19 did I fall behind. Wow how inconsiderate!!!! I will never do business with this place again. Matter fact I’ll find another loan company to pay this one out ASAP and never deal with them again !!!
