The loan offer came in the mail. We reviewed the terms and deposited the check. Funds came quickly and we received a courtesy call. The rep, Meredith, was helpful and answered our questions. We were able to pay it off within 3 months so the interest rate wasn't bothersome. I feel that some people taking this offer didn't really read the details and somehow believe they can get off the hook for repayment. If someone borrowed your money and then came up with a slurry of excuses not to repay, you'd be mad. Not just say, "Oh that's fine. You don't need to pay."
Also, if you know you can't make a payment, call ahead and not after it's due. And if you receive special terms for repayment that differ from the original contract, don't just sit there and wait for it in the mail. If your due date is coming up and you haven't received anything, call to get details so you're not hit with late charges. You can also set up an online account to view your information. "It didn't come in the mail" is not a viable excuse if they sent it and it wasn't returned unopened as "undeliverable." You must take charge on your end of the contract. I would recommend this company if you're in a pinch. Just make sure it's just a pinch and won't put you further into a hole.
I initially took out this loan for a little relief during covid. Have paid every payment on time and like a week early. During this time I have been trying to buy a home and was receiving alerts about the Regional Finance. In January when I got the first alert I called them and they assured me that it does not affect my score in any way. I felt like maybe I was wrong and let it go. Since then I have continued to pay my payment on time and early and it stalled my score because they are reporting my interest increase and not my payment that I am paying. I reached out to corporate and again Not a real answer just denying that it could do anything regarding my score. Don't obtain a loan unless you just really direly need it because this company will have you paying forever and when you have problems or concerns it's no resolution. I was told to PAY THE LOAN OFF AND FIND ANOTHER LOAN COMPANY. BEWARE.

Inquired about the company and asked for loan details prior to applying. It was not mentioned during that time that BK Chp 7 had to be discharged for 2 years. It was disclosed after the hard pull on my credit report. Rep said I met everything else aside from that. I feel like that is important to know before proceeding with an application that will affect someone's credit report while they are trying to rebuild. Not happy about that!!!
PLEASE DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!! LISA at the Round Rock location lied to me and told me the insurance policy and auto discount plan was complimentary for me using them for a loan. Two weeks later I find out that I am actually being charged for both the insurance and the auto policy and she lied to me. When I called to cancel it they tell me they can't only the supervisor can. I call back and she repeatedly hung the phone up on me and told me she would not be cancelling my insurance. I have called their corporate office and filed a complaint as well. I will never use this company and pray that no one else does.
I cashed the check these guys sent because I was low on cash in my new business and I wanted to build my with a short term loan. I sent them $1400 of the original $2400 loan amount, they agreed to send me an email when the next payment was and I never received it, resulting in them charging me an extra $150 interest. This is loan shark company, Beware.
I received a pre-approved loan offer for $2400, which is the same as what married couples get through COVID-19 stimulus checks and it is therefore very misleading. Even more insulting is the exorbitant rate of over 30%, meaning you are paying over $850 in interest on a 2-year loan some people may have accidentally signed for. This is unethical to say the least.
I was disheartened by the functionality ethical practices of Regional Finance! During these dark dire days of COVID-19 and many of us losing our jobs, altering our livelihoods, juggling our expenses, their company has opted NOT to support eliminating finance charges and fees on loans! I ask why... Yet they advertise on their website a link for covid 19 help, which is not true, the HELP and Support is not REAL!
A few weeks ago, I was notified of a loan taken out under my name and was being asked to pay $1500 within a 48 month period. I never took out a loan before and was confused about how it occurred. The loan organization explained to me that they mail checks to possible customers. Once endorsed with email, phone number, I.D., and signature the check can be cashed and the loan is activated. My signature was forged on this check with fake phone number and email address. The I.D. number used was an old expired I.D. of mine that went missing years ago. I put in a dispute with TransUnion and Equifax, placed a freeze on my credit, filed a police report, and started an investigation with the corporate loan office. Despite all of this, I have not heard back from any of these entities and the loan is still active and affecting my credit score.
I called to request a 30 day extension. Office manager Ann advised me that the only way to get extension was to barrow more money. I'm trying to pay it off. Seems to me they want to keep the leash wrapped around my neck. I'm thinking of taking the money and file bankruptcy on their BOOTIES!!! Do yourself a favor if you see a check in the mail from them in your mail box don't throw it away don't cash it BURN IT on video and send it to them. Please do NOT do business with them..
I had a loan with them and was paying it down. One of the loan specialist Irene in the Greensboro NC office offered to redo my loan and skip the next payment. They dont tell you they start the loan amount over to the original amount you were approved for. I had a balance of 800.00 and it went back to 15000.00 without them telling me. Scam. Will never use them in my life ever. Stay away.
I received a check in a mail regarding a short-term loan. I called to discuss the terms of the loan with the company. They explained all of the terms and directions to a physical office. I have been very pleased with this company.
