Here is a quick guide as to what Borrowell may or may not do as part of our loan application process to help you identify suspicious activity.
- Send you an email from an @borrowell.com email address that asks you to apply for a Borrowell loan. This would occur only if you are Borrowell member and it has been indicated that you are pre-qualified for a loan.
- Confirm information about your loan, only if you have applied for a loan on the Borrowell website (www.borrowell.com). We would contact you via email from an @borrowell.com address.
- Contact you with further inquiries pertaining to your loan application and those would come from an @borrowell.com address.
Borrowell will NOT:
- Email you saying you’re approved for a loan if you have not applied for a loan on the Borrowell website.
- Ask for any money, gift cards, pre-paid credit or debit card or anything of monetary value from you upfront.
- Ask you to transfer money via Western Union or other means. All money transfers are done via pre-authorized debit agreements.
- Email you from alternative addresses. Emails from us will always come from an @borrowell.com email address.
