The "CD + Loan" cred

    I'm referring to the strategy of taking a loan strictly for credit building purposes, where the loan is 100% secured by a CD issued by the same bank.

    If anyone was able to arrange it through an online bank with a decent interest rate, please share your experience.

    Why an online bank?

    Doesnt work anymore. Tried it. The idea itself can still work, but banks will no longer finance you even if 100% secured.

    Why? Did Congress abolish the loan industry altogether? :)

    U.S. Bank still does. I spoke to one of their bankers about a month ago. Primarily used to help build corporate or business credit with D and B. Don't know about using it for personal credit building.
    Good Luck,
