    I used the name “turkey” as that is your target customer. You offer
    up unsecured loans. If you believed in your product you’d offer
    some kind of insurance on an investors principle. There are some of
    use that would invest for the prospect of a monthly income. You
    can’t guarantee that, but you should be willing to guarantee (at a
    price) that our principle won’t disappear.

    What a great feeling it is to have all my monthly expenses paid
    with my 260 days per year Cash-Flow of prime lendingclub.com
    borrower principal& interest payments ! I still make a minimum
    4 $25 loans for the first 6 business days of the month while using
    the rest of my borrower payments to pay off my CASH-BACK credit
    cards that I use for all my expenses, even the electric bill. The
    remaining borrower payments for the rest of the month are 100%
    invested in new Prime Borrower Loans! How long did it take me to
    get to this state of Retirement NIRVANA? Well I started investing
    in Lendingclub in November of 2007 and I started paying my monthly
    bills in this manner 2 years ago! I also Lend -Not Spend my Social
    Security check each month. Get on Board the Lendingclub Gravy Train
    and join me in all the FUN! Q.E.D. Plasticman

    The idea of peer-to-peer lending is a solid one. However, it scares
    me greatly to hear Larry Summers has joined the board of directors.
    Larry’s economic ideas always favor wall street over the little
    investor. Lendingclub WAS a good idea but with Larry’s involvement
    the smaller investors here will be squeezed out.
