Review Breakdown

Do NOT do it!

This company will help in a bind, but paying them back is horrible! Paying a fee to get the money and paying an interest rate is ridiculous! I had to learn the hard way. DO NOT, Do NOT, DO NOT get a loan from this company. I wish I hadn't.

COVID-19

I had always been current on my payments up until being financially impacted by COVID 19, being an independent contractor. I contacted Elastic in March after finding out I would have NO income and they did defer 2 payments. I contacted them again today and was told that now I am 30 days past due and that unless I brought myself current, they could not defer any more payments and that I had to come up with the past due payment in order to qualify for further deferrals. The only reason I am 30 days past due now is because I have been out of work since beginning of March with nothing coming in. The rep stated that if I do not bring myself current today, it is going to be reported to the credit bureaus as 30 days past due and that once it hits 60 days they will charge off. Again, I have always been on time with my payments until COVID hit and was current at the time I called back in March. Not sure how I can come current with ZERO MONEY COMING IN. All of my other creditors have been willing to work with me and have extended further deferrals this month (anywhere from 60 days to 6 months) due to the fact I still have no income coming in and am unsure when my work will pick back up again.
