On 1-26-99 I contacted Vanguard in regard to a debt consolidation
loan. I spoke to a rep by the name of Robert, he took my info and
called me back and said I was approved for a 20,300 loan, which
would clear my debt with my creditors. I asked him questions
pertaining to the loan such as interest rate and how many years and
payment, which he answered. He informed me that a 289.00 application

denied on the basis that I did not cancel within 5 days, but that
goldshore had taken two weeks to contact me and than I wrote the
letter to get my money back. She assured me that if I wrote a

up on and promised to be called back. I finally got Nancy on the
phone and she like the others was quite rude and told me that I
was denied and that was that.
The treatment of me by this company has been horrendous, I
tried to explain to them that the reason I needed the loan
because of a large debt, so 289.00 is quite important to me and my
