Everyone knows that before giving an answer to a credit application, a banking organization and other lenders check a potential client. Such checks allow you to select borrowers who are responsible for fulfilling their loan obligations among all those who wish to do so. At the same time, borrowers themselves do not find time to check the lender or do not consider such a procedure necessary. In fact, this is a very important point.
Loans from banks and MFIs
Experts always recommend entering into credit transactions with banking organizations. Such transactions require more time and effort to find the most profitable loan program, collect all necessary documentation, and so on. The advantage of bank loans is relatively low-interest rates.
It is not always possible for a person to apply to a bank to get borrowed funds. In this case, a person who needs borrowed money is considering applying to a microfinance organization. Choosing this option, you should remember that you should not call on ads that are hung on poles and bulletin boards, especially in the case when the company does not even have an office and you can only contact a potential lender by phone. If the lender offers to meet in some cafe or other not the most suitable place to conduct a credit transaction, most likely the lender is pretending to be a fraudster, and therefore it is dangerous to conclude a deal with him and it is correct to refuse it.
The borrower turns to the lender in the hope of getting borrowed funds from it, and therefore should be wary of the lender’s requests to transfer him a certain amount of money. Such a request may be explained by a potential creditor in different ways. In most cases, it is said that these funds will be used for expenses related to the registration of a credit transaction. An honest lender will never ask the borrower for any money. Even if it requires a small amount, it is better for the borrower to refuse such cooperation.
Lenders can also deceive the borrower in other ways, for example, by drawing up a contract that is profitable for them. Few people carefully read a loan agreement before signing it. If the lender suspects that the borrower will find additional fees and other unacceptable data in the contract, they can hide them under the small print, which almost no one pays attention to when reading the contract.
Common deception schemes
Some scammers pretend to be creditors just to get personal data and copies of other people’s documents. With their help, they can turn to real creditors and make a deal on a fake person. They can refuse their client or make a deal for a small amount. With the use of documents, such as “creditors” can issue several loans at once to a figurehead, and they will have to return them to the real owner of the documents. it is not easy to prove that the funds were received by someone else in this situation.
