Complaint Review: Lafayette Funding
Lafayette Funding Deceptive Loan Consolidation Bismark ND and Internet
I recieved a direct mail piece from Lafayette Funding offering me a credit consolidation loan. The direct mail item promised significantly lower payments than my current consolidation loan (based on lower interest rates) so I contacted them. On the phone I spoke with a woman who asked some very cursory financial questions which I answered. I was promised a follow up call the following day which I did recieve. The gentleman I spoke with asked me essentially the same cursory financial questions and told me he was going to run a "soft pull" of my credit and then get back to me on whether I was approved for the consolidation loan. Several days later I recieved a call from a woman who told me that she had information on my loan and payment schedule. As she continued to go through a very well polished "rap" it was clear that they were not offering me a consolidation loan but rather a debt settlement service which involved legal fees and would end up both harming my credit (in fairness she did admit this when I asked) and closing the credit accounts that would be negotiated. You may have a different opinion by my opinion is that the very low payments promoted in the direct mail and the consolidation loan process was just a front for selling debt consolidation services. My opinion is that these are dishonest people and that I would not recommend contacting them for a consolidation loan without expecting them to re-route you to a debt settlement service instead. I can afford the payments I'm making and was just seeking to lower my payments with a better interest rate so I told them I was going to pass on their "offer." Again, I feel strongly that they misrepresented themselves and seriously doubt very many of their leads actually get loans.
