Fuck you, Lending Tree, Fuck you

I should have looked at the online reviews.  Oh why oh why didn’t I look at the online reviews?

My credit score from Equifax last May was 780.  Since then I paid the interest off on my student loans.  I wanted to finance a used car for $8000.  I thought there would be no problems with my wicked good score.   (My rehire at my job was delayed, so it turns out there were problems with my income status, but that’s not the point.)

I submitted my request for quotes Friday afternoon.  My account info said something along the lines of “We are in the process of finding you lenders.  This may take up to 48 hours.”

Monday.  Same status.  Tuesday.  Same status.  Meanwhile, my dealership is calling and harassing me everyday.  Wednesday.  Same status.  I write to them to the email listed on their contact page.


subject:  Is there a reason my rate quote request is taking more than 48 hours?

Dear Lending Tree,

I submitted a request for loan rates for a used auto on Friday the 9th.  It’s now Wednesday, the 14th.  If you can’t find any places that will finance a 2002 with low mileage, I’d prefer that you tell me quickly so I can take my business elsewhere.  I have excellent credit; an $8000 loan should be low risk.

I just spoke with my manager at work (I worked with him for 2 years, took time off, and have just been rehired) and no one has called him to confirm employment.  If you need the corporate office number for CVS please tell me.  Don’t leave me in the dark; my car is waiting for me at the dealer.

An unsatisfied customer,

Candice Hall

Within 24 hours I get a response from Gmail’s Delivery Subsystem

Delivery to the following recipient has been delayed:


Message will be retried for 2 more day(s)

Technical details of temporary failure:
The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect. Learn more at http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=7720
[lendingtreeautos.com (1): Connection refused]

Two days later and the Mail Delivery Subsystem tells me that “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently.”

I deleted my account with them after the first email failure.

I haven’t checked my credit report, but I bet there’s a bunch of inquiries (lowering my score) that were not fruitful at all.

So fuck you, Lending Tree, fuck you.  Highly not recommended.

  1. Lending tree is a joke!!!! We had someone buying our house and waited on lending tree to close the loan for 3 1/2 months. Told us six times of closing days, never would call the attorneys office where we were closing at to cancel til the last minute! This place caused me close to $500 in lost wages for taking off work on lies, plus several vacation days on the other days we were suppose to close on. The buyers went to usbank and it has been only two weeks and getting ready to close. This place is a scam and and the Louisville office is nothing but liars!! Do not trust them!!! They will screw your eyes out!!!!!!!!

  2. You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

  3. I see a lot of interesting articles on your page. You have to
    spend a lot of time writing, i know how to save
    you a lot of work, there is a tool that creates high quality, SEO friendly posts in couple of minutes, just search in google – k2
    unlimited content

  4. FUCK LENDINGTREE. I am worried about my credit information now. They’re completely irresponsible. We need to contact our senators immediately. We need them to follow the UK and EU with consumer data privacy laws requiring companies to purge all consumer data – ALL OF IT – at the request of the consumer.
