What I experienced applying for a loan from CashNetUSA never have I ever gone through what I went through with them. I was approved automatically for a $3,000 loan. Once they had all of my information I was then told that one of their requirements for this loan is that I had to have online banking which I did not.
So I set up online banking then they told me they needed my ID username along with my password to my online banking account. It did not sound legit. Again, being my first time going through this type of process, I went ahead and gave them that information.
Later this afternoon they contacted me and said because my credit score was on the low Fair, before they could actually send the $3,000 to my account they had to do a trial run so they said they had sent a deposit of $429 to my account.
Once I saw that it was in my account I was to go to either Walgreens or CVS or Rite Aid and buy a money card and send that money back to them. Then within 10 minutes, they would deposit $3,000 into my account.
That's when I realized I had almost screwed completely up. Now I have to run straight to my bank, sit down with a representative, explain the entire process, and ask my bank what is this a legit company or was it a scam.
Once again they had all my information so my bank pulled up CashNetUSA on Google and it said that it's fraudulent company.
Immediately, we closed my account and open a new account, changed all of my PIN numbers.
Tomorrow I will be calling the Better Business Bureau and Reporting them. Several times, when I was dealing with CashNetUSA, their customer service reps used very bad language and told me “F” You and hung up on me as God is my witness.
I almost made the biggest mistake of my life. Do NOT use this company or you can lose everything you've worked so hard for.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
