Western Sky I think they take loan app info and sell to collection agencies Timber Lake South Dakota
I can't prove that these two things were related, but I think they were.
After applying to WesternSky for a loan, shortly after that my bank account was seized for back taxes.
Now, you might think the seizure was a coincidence, but I'd been mostly unemployed since 2009, had no money but what was borrowed from relatives, and the tax man hadn't been bothering me. In fact, I only had $300 in the account, and it was borrowed from a relative to pay for expenses until my first payday.
So I gave WesternSky all this info in the loan application -- my bank account, my job, etc., and suddenly the state takes the account and sends me to a homeless shelter until my first paycheck. (I paid them the balance after the job got going, but making me homeless? That I won't forget.)
They turned me down for the loan -- my job was new and my credit not so great after the 2008-present economic depression. But I think part of their business model is making money by turning peoples' info over to collection agencies.
