Q: After registration, what would be the next step?
A: Those who register to the website need to submit the business permit of the credit, lending or financing company they work for. The permit will serve as proof of legitimate business.
We also provide an authorization letter that needs to be filled out and returned to us by the registrant. The letter states that the individual who registered has the authority to represent the credit, lending or financing company and upload profiles on its behalf. It has to be printed and signed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or owner of the company, and scanned before it is sent to us. It can be submitted either through fax at (02) 534-5482 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Q: How are accounts verified? How long is the verification process?
A: We verify the account based on the documents given to us. After we receive the requirements, we will contact the individual for a short interview. If we find him or her qualified to become a member, we will send a notification through email. The sooner we receive the documents, the quicker the process will be.

By ensuring that we only have legitimate accounts, we can ensure that a reliable source is contributing to our database and all credit information shared is true and correct.
We verify the legitimacy of our members' accounts by asking the registrants to submit requirements. These requirements will prove that the individual who registered is affiliated with a credit, lending or financing institution and that he or she is authorized to represent the said institution in the website.
