Many people struggle financially. No matter the reason, people are still afraid to talk about it. While financial trouble can be very personal, there are misconceptions about how and why people find themselves in financial trouble.
This is our privacy notice for our customers. We, our, and us means Prestige Financial Services, Inc. and/or 888DropMyRate where applicable. When we use the words “you” and “your” we mean consumer customers who have either: (1) submitted an application to Prestige Financial Services, Inc. and/or 888DropMyRate to obtain an extension of credit or (2) secured a loan from Prestige Financial Services, Inc. and maintain a customer account with us. Note that our policy regarding disclosure of nonpublic personal information to nonaffiliated third parties is different for each type of customer as discussed in detail below. We will tell you the sources for nonpublic personal information we collect on our customers. We will tell you what measures we take to secure that information. We first define some terms. Nonpublic personal information means information about you that we collect in connection with providing a financial product or service to you. Nonpublic personal information does not include information that is available from public sources, such as telephone directories or government records. An affiliate is a company we own or control, a company that owns or controls us, or a company that is owned or controlled by the same company that owns or controls us. Ownership does not mean complete ownership, but means owning enough to have control. A nonaffiliated third party is a company that is not an affiliate of ours.

Disclosure and Offer Information:
MONTHLY SAVINGS/ADDITIONAL INTEREST FOR LONGER TERMS AND EXTENDED FIRST PAYMENTS/SIMPLE INTEREST CONTRACTS:
Savings claims based on monthly payment savings alone. If approved, lower monthly payment may result from a lower interest rate, a longer term or both. Remaining term may be extended for additional monthly savings; however, extending the term or the first payment beyond 30 days will increase the total interest paid.
A reduced monthly payment does not mean that you will pay less overall with a new loan. If you choose to extend the new term from your remaining term for more monthly savings, you will pay more in interest and have more monthly payments which will impact any savings from a reduced monthly payment. Savings may vary and your savings may be different.
