Regarding Collection Policies
We never collect money / At WFL we don't approve loans or influence lenders in any way regarding your application for approval. Since we don't lend money, we never collect money. If you default on payments to your loan provider, they will be taking action in the form of collections. Read your lender's documentation on policies and procedures thoroughly so you fully understand their collection practices.
