I opened a small loan in August of 2016 to rebuild my credit, and this was the only reason I opened with Security Finance.After paying for 7 months, on time, and in the 8th month paying it off I find out that my loan and payment history has never been reported!

I called the corporate office and finally got a supervisor and all she could say was they did an update in August and have suspended all reporting until further notice. I asked her why I wasn't told at the loan closing when they have me the form that says they will report my loan.

She said they thought it was going to be brief and then I asked her why wasn't I notified in the mail about it and she said she couldn't answer that for me.I am a little upset and would like to know how they can get away with this and what I can do on my side????

Whether a company chooses to report to the credit bureaus or not is completely up to that company. The FCRA only regulates what is required if a company chooses to report. Google "Is a lender required to report to the credit bureaus."


My wife and I are having the same issue..its about Class action time I think.

We both have loans through them because we have a good friend that works at our local office. I filed a BBB complaint, and instead of fixing the credit reporting they threatened to fire our friend!!

I had no choice but to drop the complaint.The credit bureaus say it is as easy as a phone call for them to fix it also.

Same here.2nd loan.

Not reported.

Easy to get a loan but will do nothing to help your credit.Shame on them for the misleading information.

I am currently dealing with the same problem.

Hinesville, Georgia, United States #1320132

I am having the same problem.I just sent them a written notice of my intent to ftle a complaint under the FCRA if my pay history is not reported immediately.

I'm really considering suing them because they are intentionally keeping my credit score low by not reporting. I have paid out 2 loans and have 3 more payments on a 3rd loan. NONE of my payments are on there.

In fact it doesn't even show that 2 of the loans ever even existed.Conversely, I have 2 HARD inquiries on my credit report from them.

I have security finance loans for many years and never had a problem until now.I paid my loan on time every month.

when I asked for the final payment they quoted me the amount. I sent the money thru my bank just like every month. When they got my final payment they called me and stated that I had to pay more money because my pay ment was not date stamped. (like an envelope at the post office.

So I ended up paying more money to them and finally got it Payed off. This is really bull ***.

How can you date stamp a check from the bank.I HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF> THATS FOR SURE.

The exact same thing happened to me.The only reason I kept my account open is so that it would help raise my credit score.

The last time my payment history was reported was in June/July 2016. I renewed the account in December and actually paid it off last month.

It is still showing as an open account and I want it off my credit report ASAP!I'm contacting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and suggest you do the same.
