Someone opened an account in my name with this company. I may have been hacked through Facebook or another recently compromised online service or app. At the same time my PayPal, eBay, and both my bank accounts were hit with all types of bogus purchases.
LendUp was far more clever...they deposited $200 into my bank, and have refused to cooperate in ending the bogus "payday loan." I have contacted LendUp by phone and email in regards to providing an address to send them their money, and have advised them repeatedly of this fraud, and to close the bogus account. LendUp reps on the phone have tried to gain further unneeded personal information from me, tried to get me to send them an "affidavit" on the matter, and are now trying to hit me for outrageous interest payments. I have refused to give them any information, and informed them that the only "affidavit" they are going to see is the one I fill out for the authorities, not them. Their "response" 1-855 number keeps asking me to provide the phone number to my account.
I don't have an account with them, and cannot provide whatever phone number was used to set up the bogus loan, nor any password, or any other information they supposedly have associated with this fraud. This bunch of SCAMMERS are the only ones who have refused to cooperate in ending this nightmare. Never do business with these crooks!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
