ONLINE LOANS - ARE THEY SAFE?

With the advancement of technology enabling safer transactions online together with high-speed Internet connections, many consumers are performing personal loan research from the comforts of their home. As result, applying for loans online is becoming an increasingly popular means for achieving financing.

A recent study has concluded that online funding will continue to rise in 2008; this follows a rise of more than 305 percent over the past year. Modifications in legislation also add to the rise in online loan applications. Consumers are now able to submit their financing request online without having to return any sort of signed paperwork. This aspect is a major convenience and is the most impacting factor in the success of online lending. Consumers will receive hard copy letters if the loan is terminated or if payments are late or missed altogether.

Getting a cheap personal loan can be achieved if you take your time and research.

**Consumer alert! Beware of any type of loan that requires an advance fee in order to achieve financing. These type of loans are a scam!

Who is shopping online for loans?
A recent poll shows that more than 25% of adults would do research and look for a loan online. This is an eighty percent increase over the previous year's study. More than half of those surveyed in the 18-24 age bracket would search for an online loan. When it comes to men and women, men are more likely to apply online. Consumers over the age of 55 are the least likely group to seek financing online.

How safe are online personal loan applications?
When consumers apply for an online loan, they are still protected with 'traditional' benefits. For example, a 'cooling off' period is in effect for all online credit agreements for 14 days. This means that the consumer has 14 days to change their mind and not use the loan without incurring any sort of penalty.

Lenders are continuously working to make online banking safer. Accounts, personal information and passwords are always encrypted to ensure that their consumers are not victims of identity theft and/or fraud.

How do online loans compare to those obtained from physical branches and offices?
The main difference, when dealing with traditional lenders, between applying online and applying in person is the method; the loans are the same. However, it is very common for banks to offer special loan rates that are restricted to online customers. This is great news for the consumer. Not only are banks going to use these motivations to promote online banking, but also, acknowledging the convenience and the competition, other lenders will compete. In addition, achieving bad credit loans are often easier to achieve online.

Anyone in the market for a loan should read the 'borrowing advice' and 'personal loan tips' sections.

What are the requirements for getting approved for personal loans?
Every loan provider is going to have varying criteria for each applicant. However, there are a few basic variables considered by every financial institute including credit rating, borrowing amount, debt-to-income, etc..
