    I will be happy to update this review IF I CAN GET ANYONE to answer my calls or emails at Funding Circle. Have done 2 rounds of PPP, and am trying to fill out their online application for forgiveness, have found a mistake in their application that does not allow me to finish, or edit, the application. It has been 6 days and calls and emails, to multiple people, including my Account Rep, have gone unanswered. Funny, when I was applying for the loan they got back to me pretty quickly, but now that I need their help and they have already made their $$$$? Crickets, nothing. REALLY frustrating.

    Update, they did get back to me and we were able to complete the forgiveness application. There is still a bug on the application when you qualified under an 8 week, then were funded on a 24-week lookback for PPP, but we were able to get it finished. Had a positive experience on getting the funds, but did have that delay with communication. Our PPP loan more that qualifies for forgiveness based on our criteria, just waiting to hear back officially. Would upgrade to a 3 or 4 star at this point instead of the original 1 star.

    These guys are unresponsive, unreliable and incompetent. They do not respond to questions and their process makes no sense. Very disappointed to have wasted so much time with trying to apply for a ppp with them. What a mess.

      Unprofessional. We applied for.working capital. Declined, which is understandable. But we were never notified we were declined and I asked kindly for feedback numerous times from two people and got no response. We have been declined elsewhere very professionally. Immediately after that experience we successfully received funding through PayPal Business Loan.

        I had the exact same experience as Cornelia Christoffers. Baited with advertisement for a low interest rate, did not disclose origination fee until weeks into the process just as the papers were being drawn. I had good business and personal credit and they put me at 15.87%, with a 7% origination fee. Fed info about the loan in bits and pieces. Just awful. I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.

        7% Origination!!!??? Whoa! Mind blowing that the SBA would associate themselves with ANYONE charging that kind of percentage to originate the loan. I provide funding solutions (as a broker) for investment real estate for a living. That is predatory lending at its finest. Shocking!

          Cornelia Christoffers

          Funding Circle: Bad Business ! Advertised loans up to EUR 60.000 with interest rates starting at 1.69%. My Credit Score is 95.62% of 100% and I inquired about a EUR 25.000 loan. They offered an interest rate of 13.49 % ! What a joke !!!
