AMERICAN GENERAL Complaint - Stay away from American General's personal loans
DELAWARE, OHIO -- In 2006 we got a loan to fix our windows for $2,500 plus financing it was going to cost us $3,748 well a couple months later we hit a bind and they offered to loan us another $500. Turned out what I thought was just an extension to our loan was in fact our 1st loan paid off and then they rewrote a new loan including the extra $500. That stupid $500 just cost us 1 more year and the loan is now for $5,900. How the hell this loan just doubled I can't get these loan sharks to admit to but I'm determined to let anyone and everyone know that they are just as bad if not worse than any loan shark out there and they did this legally...it was my fault I sat and listened to them as they said they would just "amend" the contract when in fact they had me paying back twice more than I borrowed. I filed an BBB complaint and they have a neg report on them but I don't think that they care....stay clear of these people they will take you to the poor farm and will keep trying to sell you snake oil. Research if you don't believe me but I have proof they have ripped me off and they won't even send statements of receipt of payment because I paid extra and I paid monthly and they still have me behind on payments. Wish me luck in fighting these jerks!
