      Hi! Another blogger posted information about Prosper.com. Has anyone used this company to lend or to borrow funds? What are your experiences? Any caveats that I should consider before borrowing to consolidate debt ($8700 @ 10% or less)?

      Thanks for your replies.

              Hi, Luckiest: Thanks for the your inquiry. I am seeking to consolidate personal debt with the intent of reducing finance charges on two cards: (a store card @ 23% and major card with 7% on purchases, 19% on cash advances). Other cards are financed at 9 and 11%, and can manage them.

              Consolidating would help to minimize money that goes to finance charges.

              I've tried BoA's 0% personal credit card, but was turned down because of a high debt:income ratio (28%) and high revolving balances (78% on TransUnion, 96% on Equifax and Experian).

              I am solvent and have an average credit score (640 - 670). Any advice is helfpul as I am trying to reduce debt so as to increase my business capabilities.

              Many thanks!

              I just checked out proper.com after reading your thread. I stopped in my tracks when I saw just to post an ad, they wanted my driver's license number and checking account information. I understand that this might be needed in the transaction once a lender is found but I was very uncomfortable just handing it out right off the bat. I am curious to know if anyone else has used it. I am in need on funds (75k) to purchase an existing business and am new to shopping for a business loan.

                I won't bother to comment on their legitimacy, however, there are debt consolidators all over the place that will help you first get a handle on your debt and position, and then help you establish legitimate sources. Go to them first. You might break the ice during your visit by asking them about Prosper.
