Me and my husband both have a flex loan from Advance Financial. They are very friendly. They don't try to hide anything. But if you're in need of money quick this is the place to get it. Sometimes people need help.

I came into the Ft Campbell Blvd store in Clarksville, TN to get a flex loan. Ebony was great and extremely patient given the situation. She had a great attitude and made the experience pleasant. Would definitely recommend going to Ebony when coming to this location.

    I have had two loans with this company. One I paid in full and I borrowed against it again and fell way behind. I tried to work with them, but the amount owed just keep getting higher. It went 1800 to over 4500. They turned me over to a law firm that gave me a settlement for 2200 and thirty days, in the midst of the covid-19 or I would get a warrant in debit and garnish my wages. I am nurse supporting five people and trying to make ends meet, and the law firm, they use don't care. Please stay safe and pay them they will come and get there money!!

    I was originally approved for $4,000 and used the entire amount. When I started making the astronomical payments, I almost had a stroke and immediately borrowed from my 401k to pay off the entire amount as I could not afford to make the outrageous bi-weekly payments. I swore to never use it again, but as I thought about it, I figured I would keep it for emergencies or occasionally, I just need to borrow about 500 before payday but I knew I had to pay off the entire amount as soon as I was paid or be trapped in the mountain of added interest.

    So I started using it that way. I didn't use it every month, but I did use it maybe every other month, but made sure I paid it off by the next payday. I recently went to borrow $50 because I didn't want to go to the bank and was shocked to see they had lowered my credit line to $2,000. I realized then I am not the customer they want. They only want people who can't repay them immediately because they won't be able to charge their ripoff rates. Very disappointed. Can't win either way.

      Like many others I borrowed money from this company and had been making payments for several months. I was easily making payments every 2 weeks and my account balance was showing to be slowly being paid off. Yes I did this knowing how high the interest was and that it was gonna take a while. However I noticed that many of my payments were not coming out of my bank account. When I called AF24/7 several times regarding this they told me "your account is paid and up to date, no worries Mr **" that is until Feb 28th of 2020 when I was hit 3 times for payments all posted dated going back as far as Dec 1st.

      They took three additional payments after that for a total of 6 payments for over $1500.00. When I spoke with them and my bank at the same time it turned into a he said she said ordeal with me not getting any help. On top of this AF24/7 stated they saw no payments made on these days, even with screenshots and account statements sent in. They stated that this is a common "problem" and that it's the bank's fault. Then 3 days after the 6th payment came out they had the nerve to call me and say my account was 6 days past due? Sadly like many others I did not get any assistance with this matter and was left bankrupt and unable to pay my bills. Word of advice to anyone thinking of using this service. DON'T. Find anything better.

      Despite revoking the EFT authorization, Advance Financial still fraudulently debited my account. I know this has happened to other people. If you're interested in filing a joint complaint with the State Attorney and requesting an investigation, please email me at: **.

      Please note this company will not I repeat honor you. Revoke automatic debit. Charge your debit card after you revoke them. Then will go in and take funds. This a federal crime after you revoke them. They waited 3 weeks after I revoke them, and then went in and took money. Lock your cards till you get them cancel. Please beware of them. Fight the debit with your back so they will not be allowed to use visa or MasterCard. They will have their payment service took. Please file with your bank. I am. They took money from me. We need to start a class action suit

      I sent in a request twice via email to cancel my eft/ach and lo and behold the transaction came out of my account anyway despite the fact I sent the request more than a week in advance. They also will not refund anything.

      I have an account always interest before time in January. My statement said due by 2/2/20 but on the 1/31 when I went to pay my statement changed to 1/31/20. If you experience this be aware and have investigated. Also save your statements because they will change them.

      If I could go back; I never would have borrowed money from this company. I borrowed roughly $3000.00 making payments of $300.00 every 2 weeks. I was thinking wow I'll have this paid in no time. After my 4th payment I called to see when I would have the loan paid off. I was informed that I was set up for 24 months. astonished that borrowing 3000 could possibly turn into $14400.00. This place is commiting highway robbery. What person in their right mind would knowing agree to those terms? As I said in the beginning IF YOU HAVE OTHER OPTIONS take those. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM.

      I got summons to go to court over this matter. I offered to pay them $100.00 a month; which is what I can afford. they refuse to take that amount; I tried to do a slow pay on the account and offer $100.00 and law firm representing them out of Nashville Cheadle Law Firm was too busy to show up to the court date; but they refused the $100.00 I could afford to pay them and wanted $250 a month. Yes, $250 is better than the original $600 a month I was paying. The point is these people don't care what your circumstance is. If you are needing a loan GO ELSEWHERE.

      Do NOT allow auto drafting of payments. They took payments twice from a friend’s account ahead of the agreed date, wiping her out and overdrafting her account. She now cannot pay her rent for January and is having to seek help. Advance refuses to refund even one payment taken illegally.

      Do not borrow from this company. I had a loan of 3500.00 and have paid 2000.00 so far and payoff is 3683.00. This is just in two months time. It is sad they take from people that have no other option than to borrow from places like this and make it impossible to pay back. I will continue to post on every site possible to warn others this is the worst option when you are in a bind.
