Loans Tips

Here are some good tips to help you secure the loan you want.

  • You shouldn’t apply for too many loans at once, it has a negative impact on your credit score (hard inquiries cause your credit score to drop)
  • Always consider checking your credit score before applying for a loan
  • Always do research when shopping for a loan. This will allow you to find a legitimate lender who can provide you with a loan that best suits your needs. Remember, if the offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is
  • Whenever possible, consider taking out a loan with a shorter payment term. While your monthly payments might be larger, you’ll pay the loan off faster and ultimately end up spending less money
  • It’s extremely important to make your monthly loan payments on time and in full, as any missed or late payments will result in a penalty fee, interest rate hike, and a drop in your credit score

Increasing Your Chances of Getting Approved

True, applying for a loan can seem like a long and difficult process, especially when you need it to help you with a particular financial problem you’re having. However, we have some advice for how you can increase your chances of getting approved:

  • Make sure to check your credit report before you apply
  • Be aware of (and pay off) any other debts you might have beforehand
  • Do extensive research, and consider all your options before you apply
  • Choose the right lender for your specific financial situation
  • Update and gather all necessary documentation and personal information
  • Do not pick the first lender you come across. Always take your time and shop around before making a commitment to one lender
  • Remember, banks are no longer the only places to get a loan. There are other lenders out there
  • Online lenders are a great option to get the loan you need, especially if you have bad credit

Protecting Your Personal Information

One of the most important things to remember about any financial transaction, loans included, is that there are fraudsters out there who may try to steal your personal information and use it to their advantage. Because of this, it’s necessary to take the proper steps in securing and protecting all your information. By doing this, you’ll greatly reduce your chances of falling victim to a fraud of any kind.

If you aren’t careful with your personal information, an identity thief can cause you a lot of financial problems and distress, not just by stealing your hard earned money, but by taking out loans in your name and ruining your credit in the process.

How can you tell if you’re a victim of identity theft? Find out here.

Dealing With Fraud

Fraud is a serious crime, one that can be extremely difficult to deal with. It can come in all forms and can affect anyone, anywhere, anytime. This is especially true if you aren’t taking the proper steps to protect your information. In fact, an identity thief can use many pieces of your personal information to wreak havoc on your finances. Your name, date of birth, driver’s license, banking information, social insurance number, etc. are all subject to theft if you’re not careful.

Any form of fraud is bad for your finances and your credit. As a result, fraud can also affect the possibility of you getting approved for a loan you might need in the future. Consumer fraud comes in all shapes and sizes, including but not limited to:

  • Identity Theft
  • Credit Fraud
  • Loan Fraud
  • Credit Card Fraud

Here are some of the most common warning signs of fraud that everyone should be on the lookout for:

  • If a lender contacts you to inform you that they’ve successfully received a loan application in your name, one that you never applied for
  • If you receive confirmation from a credit card company or bank that you’ve been approved or declined for a card that you never applied to get
  • When your credit card (or other credit product) statements stop arriving by mail
  • When you start seeing purchases and/or transactions on your statements that you don’t remember making
  • If you’re contacted by a collection agency that informs you of an outstanding debt that you haven’t paid, or an account in default that you never opened
