Loan Investigations

At some point or another, you may need a loan. Many can go to a bank or their credit union and apply, and those with a sufficiently high enough credit score will get the loan approved. For others, even though they have the job security and collateral to get the loan, their credit score or their need isn’t enough for approval. 

Nowadays, banks and credit unions are even more particular about how and why they approve loans. This can go for personal loans or even small business loans. This can prove challenging for many who may need this extra money for their start-up or also to purchase a car. There are many other lenders outside the traditional banks and credit unions. Unfortunately, many aren’t trustworthy, and you may find yourself in debt with a super high-interest loan, dealing with an aggressive loan shark, or finding yourself the victim of a scam. 


This can be difficult as many money lenders come off as strictly professional and even courteous. While you may need the money, you also don’t want to get scammed. Here is a way to check if a lender is legit. Keep in mind that some are better at hiding their scams than others and want your personal information.

  1. Check if the lender has an online presence. Do an internet search if you’ve never heard of them before. Check for reviews or anything else that might tip you off that they are a scammer.
  2. Try the Better Business Bureau for information. An online presence doesn’t mean the money lender isn’t predatory.
  3. Trust your gut. If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is.
  4. Check with a private investigator at Nationwide Legal Investigations to do a background check on the lender. They’ll be able to check if there are any records with the attorney general’s office and will also look at other state agencies for information.

Even if you didn’t apply for a loan, you might find that your information was stolen due to spyware on your computer. A scammer could’ve applied for a loan with your information. There is also the possibility that you may have already fallen for a predatory loan service or scam even after you did your due diligence. This is no judgment on scammers, and loan sharks are good at what they do. They know how to manipulate people.

Marc J. Tropeano and Nationwide Legal Investigations can help. We use computer forensic examination and other forms of digital forensics to track the potential spyware and possibly let you know where your information went to. They will be able to gather the appropriate data you need to help you push a civil or legal case against the lender or scammer.
