    Banks do the same. These people getting peer to peer loans are those who didn't make it past the bank's screening process.
    Banks are loaning their own money whereas p2p loaning services are just providing a service for investors to loan their money, so naturally these companies are not as worried about defaults as banks are.

    Indeed, the handful of companies I'm researching indeed have credit checks done on all borrowers. Their rates are at least partially based upon that. If there wasn't any kind of check done, that would be a mess.

    If you listen to Lending Clubs' video they say 100% of investors who have invested in 800 or more borrowers have gained 100% positive returns regardless of the timing or strategy of their investment. This is fascinating to me and I am personally earning 23.7% through the club I invest with that purchases these lending notes through Lending Club.

    I can't say the same for Prosper or any other platform that does this but Lending Club consistently pays out investors who know what they're doing and also have the capital to invest in 800 or more borrowers. $25 x 800 = $20,000. If you don't have $20,000 minimum to invest with Lending Club it's fair to say you may not see it as a great potential to invest with.

    I have a client to created a business lending to high risk businesses. Because it is business to business lending, state usury laws generally don't apply so he charges very high rates, up to 72%. He electronically takes payments from the customer bank accounts on a daily basis. He has a very high default rate, up to half his loans are behind in payments or not paying at all.

    So the interest rate he charges is misleading because he looses so much money on defaults. He generally makes money, but not as much as you would think based on the rates. I my opinion ... not a good business to be in. You are like a vulture trying to make lots of money off of failing business, mostly hoping they pay you most of what they owe you before they go out of business.
