Charge-offs begin today

by Prosper on 10/28/08

As described on the September 24 site update, borrowers whose loans were 91 or more days past due on that date (and not in bankruptcy proceedings) received a notice of acceleration. The Notice of Acceleration is a warning that the loan will be accelerated in 30 days, meaning the loan will be due and payable in full. If the borrower doesn’t make a payment by the 30 day deadline, his or her loan will then be charged-off at 121 days past due.

As of today, any loans which are still 121 or more days past due will be accelerated and switched into “charge-off” status. Loans in which the borrower is in a bankruptcy proceeding will not be charged-off.

Lenders with charged-off loans will receive an email when the loan is charged-off. A charge-off loan’s details will still be accessible to lenders in their Prosper account, and any post-charge-off recoveries can be viewed on the loan detail page.

You can learn more about charge-offs on this help page.

I find it really disappointing that over the duration of five years of 43 loans I have made – 12 have been charged-off – with no future recoveries of any portion of the loans. I find it hard to believe that no money has ever been recovered. There seems to be a void in the collection process – and informing the lender of the status of the attempted collections.

Just one month after announcing that we crossed $1 billion dollars in loans, I’m happy to report that we’ve hit another significant milestone. In April, a record $100 million in loans was originated through the platform. This is up 400% from one year ago and 30% month-over-month. More importantly, it is indicative of the incredible [...]
