Alternative solution to student loans
« on: July 28, 2016, 05:53:58 AM »
Does anyone have experience with this platform? They are called and appear to provide investment instead of a loan. Something about offering returns to investors from your monthly income with no commitments. Any idea?

Never had experience with them but it raises a bunch of red flags:
1. They don't have the mandatory disclosures anywhere on their site
2. They use stock photos for all of the pictures of people you're supposed to invest in (you can buy the pictures on Shutterstock)
3. It's very risky as an investor, and as a borrower, you might not get great financing as a result
