Had a loan for new A/C with Lendmark Financial. After paying for four years we opted to do a bill consolidation loan so that we could stay current with all our bills. We were paying 19% on the A/C financing well when the bill consolidation loan comes through the interest rate JUMPED to 36%. After paying 600.00 per month for three years on a twelve thousand dollar loan we still owed $9000.00. We paid this loan off and told the office personal and manager in the Kingsland Ga. office that were most certainly a predatory lender. Very slick when handling paperwork so you don't see the interest rate until you have signed for it. BE SURE AND READ EVERYTHING IN THE CONTRACT NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES, THESE PEOPLE ARE WELL TRAINED AND CROOKS TO BOOT...
I put a $3500 down payment on a car at a car lot, they then sent me to Lendmark to get a loan for the remaining $5000. Was a very simple process. The lady in the office ran through the paper work quickly and stated when things were not going to mean anything and to mark that spot, well she lied. She never explained how much the loan would really be. My $5000 loan turned into a $12000 loan and their corporate office never responds and no one can explain to me why or fix the issue. I have technically paid the $5000 and it never goes down and has been almost 2 years. Help me stop this company. They have already ruined my credit I was working so hard to repair. This is illegal and wrong.
Whoever reading this I do not recommend this company. This company should be banned and placed out of business. It's a wicked company. I have a 690 credit score. Went to them to get an interest rate of 26%. Please stay away from them. Always remember on the bottom of your contract where the paper is folded reads: RATE OF INTEREST: Read it carefully.... It's the SCAM written in small writing. Please don't trust their clerks. Columbus, Ga.
I have had my truck financed through Lendmark for about 1.5 years. I should have heeded the warning signs the day I signed the loan docs and my down payment went up $850. Some nonsense about a manager somewhere nobody ever heard of made that call. Okay, no big whoop I needed the truck for work and I got a great deal on it. Next though they started taking my payment from my account a day early, then two days until I called their district chump and told him that it violated the Truth in Lending act and rather than stop, I was forced to remove their ability to do any more in the future. Then I got sick, really sick and started making my payment late some months by about a week.
Well, now they call, and call, and call some more. In fact my payment was due Monday it's now Friday and I've had the money for a couple of days. Today is actually the last working day of the month and during Monday's call she really wanted to make sure I had it in by Friday... Hmm, I wonder why? Could it be her pay is based somehow on everyone getting their payments in? So like I said, it's now Friday and the day's almost over 3:30pm and they have called me 4 times so I'm thinking I'll pay it Monday.
We have had a loan with Lendmark Financial for 2 years. Through those 2 years, we had some financial hardships, but worked hard and got caught back up on payments. Everything is current. This morning I received a call to inform me that our 2 accounts had payments that were due for August. I tell the rep that payday is tomorrow and I will be making payment on one loan tomorrow and one loan on the 15th of next month. Mind you, the due date for the loan I will make payment on the 15th, is due August 21. The rep tells me that that particular account is past due 1.5 months. So I go online to pull up our account and it is actually 6 days past due. 6. She told me a month and a half. Even if I pay on the 15th of next month, it isn't even 30 days behind.
She tells me that we need to try to avoid going through the courts system and having my husband's wages garnished. The account isn't even a month past due!! So, I called back and pointed out their blatant lie. Of course that makes the rep mad, because she knew that we know she lied! That's ok, though, bc in December, we will be getting a large payout from an estate and we will be paying them off. I will tell everyone I know NOT to deal with Lendmark and will be filing a BBB complaint.

I wish I would have read these reviews before using this company. They are crooks and will rip you off. I got a loan for a 2001 Honda Accord and somehow this loan has ballooned to over $8000. They will take your money and not credit your account. I am doing my best to figure a way out of this because I have been paying them $300 for five years and still owe $8000.
My daughter took out a loan to pay off credit card debt. Her loan was for 7500. She paid 200 dollars a month for 4 years. She ran into financial hardship and asked to company to work with her. She wrote a letter of hardship which they requested. They denied her a payment plan and began to harass her daily. They harassed her family. When we had the opportunity to talk them they were very rude and it was impossible to get a word in. They went to court and got a judgment. They have put a permanent hold on her bank account.
Any funds that go in belongs to to the lender until 7500 is paid even though she already paid 5000 to the company. The interest rate keeps ballooning and you never make progress on the loan. My daughter has no income now. She only works part time and is a caretaker for her Grandmother who has dementia. This company preys on people with bad credit. The loans they give have insane terms. Lendmark has essentially destroyed my daughter's life. Save yourself. They are cruel loan sharks. I hope this helps someone to not go through this nightmare. I should mention that Karen in the office in Virginia hung up on me twice. She never sent a notice that they were putting a permanent hold on her bank account. She refused to send my daughter any copies pertaining to the judgment.
The people I have dealt with at the local office have been fine. The rates and fees have been horrible. I needed a car badly and used the car dealer to finance my car. The dealer used Lendmark loan company, etc. I will do my best to never have to get in the position of using a consumer loan company ever again.
It was easier for me to acquire my home loan from another company than it was the auto loan. After about 1 and half years into the loan I had experienced some personal hardship and financial hardship and attempted to refinance the loan and I was told to go pound salt. Well not in those words. Just the company would NOT work with me and wife to make my situation easier. I strongly do NOT recommend this company!!!!
I have had a loan with them for years. Never a late payment, the payments are automatically deducted from my checking account on the due date. Where it turns nasty is when you try to make extra payments to pay off early. They turned rude and even refused to take my payment. The manager wouldn’t even return my calls. Calling their home office is no help either. In other words, they could care less about you if they aren’t making the maximum profit off of you. Stay away!!
