In searching for a home improvement loan, I signed up with Lending Tree. The site did not find a suitable lender for me. Adding insult to injury, either Lendingtree or a number of Lendingtree's "trusted lenders" passed my name, SS#, bank account number, unlisted phone number and email address to numerous unscrupulous, read that as fraudulent, companies; e.g., onlineloans.com, savingmakesmoney.com, et alia. The countless SPAM messages, unwanted phone calls, and two attempts to fraudulently withdraw cash from my bank forced me to close my checking account, cancel my email address, and block TWENTY-FIVE solicitors from contacting me by phone. When I called Lendingtree.com to complain about the above problems, a "customer service" representative claimed she could not find a record of my applying for a loan through lendingtree.com. BTW, the only reason I gave this site a "1" score is I could not rate the company zero.
