I just tried them and they said I had a credit score of under 520 ......and it's really 599 on Equifax. So I was turned down. Wow! that is so sad I got turned down by them.

Where are you getting that score from EQ from? Meaning is it coming from one of the products offered here at myfico? There are scores called FAKO which is what most credit monitoring places offer, like truecredit (I use them) they give FAKO scores, which are different than the scores that lenders see - which are fico scores.

Just remember, it only makes sense to get a personal loan if the interest rate on the personal loan is lower than the lowest rate of your CCs.

Prosper uses a special score that they get from EQ, but you can not see it, even if you pay. Even if your FICO is higher than that score, they still use it and will deny you. You have to get that phantom score raised before you can use them, but you will not know you've done it until you try prosper again. It's totally lame.
