    Ladies and gentlemen. Take it from an ole boy that made a mistake with several of these high interest loans. Yes they will tell you it’s not a loan that they are purchasing future sales but you can not purchase what you cannot see . You cannot purchase the unknown. This would be gambling . Just because I had 10 customers pay 10 bucks last week via credit cards doesn’t mean the same thing will happen each and every week. My bank accounts are all negative and the business is gone yet these folks told me they knew it was operating,. Hell go shut it down if it is. Be my guest. Someone else took the building and started the same business with a slightly different name but it has nothing to do with man even though I am going to have a lawsuit against the business property owner but that’s a whole new story. All these guys do is push you into taking cash that is hell to pay back let alone throw in Covid then when things cease and shut down, they still want there money plus add on all these other made up penalties. They took a risk knowing good and well that at anytime anything could happen to a business and it go belly up so they took a gamble and that being said how many times have you , a neighbor or a family member went to a casino and lost money and then been a sore loser and ask for your money back and get it Back? I’ll sit here and wait on that amount the casinos refunded to be posted.

    These a holes showed their real colors during covid restrictions, all they care about is ripping you off for huge profits. We had NO MONEY coming in for several months and they still took theirs. Modified a little but not enough. We made a very generous offer at the payoff and they said NO. Entire balance had to be paid. WE have since paid them off with help from family and friends, but be assured we will never use these LOAN SHARKS ever again. I am advising all of you reading this to never use these crooks!!!!!!!

    While easy to obtain the loan we have already paid roughly 90% of the account off and it just been 7 months. They gave a high rate our company has slowed and I had to read the contract to find that if business slows you can modify to a lower daily payment. This seems to irritate them each time we have had to modify. We are committed to paying this account off. When asked if we could pay a bulk payment to pay off they stated we were supposed to have already been paid off so no break in the amount even though 90% has been paid in 7 months would take anything off their balance. I read the contract again in the purchaser acknowledgment section it clearly states there is no interest rate or payment schedule and no time during which the purchased amount must be collected by purchaser yet they told me it was supposed to already been paid off and I’m guessing due to modifications based on our actual revenue that had been slow the time to which we could pay it off didn’t happen as quickly as they wanted. Per their contract though there is no initial or schedule of time that the amount must be collected by purchaser so for them to tell me that it was supposed to already been paid off and that me sending in a bulk or balloon payment would not pay the account off after I all of these funds have been paid up to 90% is just ridiculous. I should not have to read my contract I should be able to send a simple email say our revenue has changed and they should respect and uphold their contract of modification instead of me having to point it out to them. This has really not helped our business it has made it so much harder with the daily payments to pay out vendors and operation cost. I would think paying roughly 30,000 in 7 months and offering a balloon payment to pay in full would be rewarded and instead we are told no we are late paying off even though each day they obtain their money and not qualifying as they say for a payoff discount to pay it off is bad business.

    With the Covid 19 shut down and zero income Everest refused to halt my ACH payments for several weeks. I cannot believe that during a crisis like this they cannot stop payments. I have even emailed them my bank statement showing them their daily ACH is causing me to have daily NSF fees. I am now paying over $150 in NSF per week on top of their $168 daily payments. I do not know what to do besides possibly shutting down. If anyone can comment with advice please do.

    Hi Phiet,

    We aren’t big fans of Everest either, as you can see by their star rating. Take a look at our Coronavirus Salon Survival Guide– it’s full of relevant resources that can hopefully help you stay afloat during this particularly difficult time for your industry as well as many others. All our best.
