Any one know more about Rapidcarloans.net?

I am wary of applying online for bad credit loan, is this merely a leads generator? I can't find any info on the company, doesn't appear to be registered with BBB.

Holy mackarel, don't do it.

It is an HTTP page, but they made the mini icon a "lock" to fool people into thinking it's an HTTPS page.

And they want you to type in a ton of personal info, including Social Security Number... all on an unsecure page!?!

And the "Secured by Thawte" logo doesn't lead anywhere, it's bogus too.

Re: Any one know more about Rapidcarloans.net?

Almost all of the bad credit car loan sites or phone numbers are for lead generation. Your info is the sold to small secondary car lots that pay $15.00 to $25.00 a lead.

Deal with a local place for a bad credit car loan and check them out before you go there. It is sad to say but many of them are crooks.

Re: Any one know more about Rapidcarloans.net?

Rapidcarloans.net is legitimate and secured website for car financing. We use the most advance SSL123 technique which provides up to 256-bit encryption including domain authenticationoffered by Thawte. Thawte is a global certificate authority providing ssl certificate (SSL) products. Wherein, they first check the legitimacy of the company and then offers security certificate. For more details you can visit the website of Thawte: www.thawte.com

Following are the ways by which you can check security of our website:

1) Check the web page URL
Normally, when browsing the web, the URLs (web page addresses) begin with the letters "http". It doesn’t mean that the website is not secured. You can check its security by inserting “s” at the end of http. For Ex: "https://www.rapidcarloans.net" - note the "s" at the end of http.
Try it!Click on this link (https://www.rapidcarloans.net). It begins with "https", meaning your personal information will be encrypted before sent to our server.

2) Check for the "Lock" icon
There are different ways among web browsers to display a "lock" icon somewhere in the window of the browser (NOT in the web page display area!) For example, Microsoft Internet Explorer displays the lock icon in the lower-right of the browser window:




As another example, Mozilla's FireFox Web Browser displays the lock icon in the lower-left corner:





While same Mozilla FireFox Browser with version 3.6 will show the lock at lower right corner of status bar and the address bar will become blue. See the below figure:





THE LOCK ICON IS NOT JUST A PICTURE!Click (or double-click) on it to see details of the site's security. Some fraudulent web sites are built with a bar at the bottom of the web page to imitate the lock icon of your browser! Furthermore, it is very important to KNOW YOUR BROWSER! Check your browser's help file or contact the makers of your browser software if you are unsure how to use this functionality.
Try it! - Visit our home page (https://www.rapidcarloans.net). Note the lock icon display in YOUR browser. Click the icon, or double-click (varies by browser), and examine the security information displayed about our web site. If there is no display at the bottom of your browser try clicking "View" in the main menu and make sure "Status Bar" is checked.

Other Indicators of our Secured Web Page

Many SSL Certificate vendors (Verisign, GeoTrust, Thwate, etc.) also provide a "site seal" to the owners of these web sites. Common characteristics of these site seals include:
  • High Visibility - Online merchants want you to see these site seals. They want you to know they have made every effort to make their site a safe shopping experience. Therefore, the site seal is usually located where you, the customer, can easily see it.
Try it!Visit our homepage (https://www.rapidcarloans.net) you can view the site seal besides the application form. Click the seal to view the security certificate of the site. See the below figure which shows the seal on our website.


  • Difficult to Duplicate - The site seals are designed to be difficult for thieves and scammers to duplicate. The site seal will have a date and time stamp on it.
  • Verification Functionality - The site seal will have some functionality whether by clicking on the seal or by hovering your mouse over the seal. The functionality will display detailed information about the web site you are visiting.
Hope this answers your question.

We have tried to answer to all your probable questions. Even if you have any question you can contact us through our email id: finance@rapidcarloans.net and we will take utmost care that your questions are being answered to your satisfaction. Please feel free to contact us.


RECEIVE EMAILS/CALLS

When you receive bulk of email or calls after giving your personal information on a website, it doesn’t always mean that the website with which you submitted your personal information is responsible. If you have a virus on your machine predators of your payment information will be able to see everything you type into your computer. Therefore, in these cases it does not matter whether or not the website is secured with “https", if your machine has a program "secretly installed" on it by a virus, you could be giving all of your information to the public. This is the reason it is a good idea NOT to keep your financial information such as credit card numbers, bank account information or social security numbers on your machine. Keep these numbers in your head or in a safe place off of your computer for added protection. It is the best way to keep the information safe from the wrong hands.
