I applied for a loan with Avant. I was approved. Then I checked back and saw that Avant wanted me to approve a "hard credit check." I really didn't want to do this. However, the rep told me that I had been approved, so I gave in. Afterward, I received an email that the loan had been denied. I have a 653 Trans Union score. Now it will go down. Do not give Avant the ability to "hard pull" your credit score. They must check upward from four to five regional credit bureaus. I thought they would only pull from Trans Union. Oh well!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
