    Unsecured personal loans with bad credit?
    Which company's lend to people with bad credit I went through a nasty divorce and now I need to rebuild my credit. I understand the interest will be a little higher and suggestions.

    Both First Premier and Orchard Bank offer credit cards for bad credit. But you're right, fees and interest will be high, so you need to make sure you're ready to really manage the card wisely and upgrade to a better card ASAP. These types of cards are really just meant to be stepping stones as you get back on the path to building good credit history.

    Secured credit cards are a great option as well, particularly First Progress: http://www.creditnet.com/credit-cards/secured-credit-cards

    Nobody in their right mind.

    Seriously, if you're talking *unsecured personal loan* as opposed to, say, a secured credit card (to begin the rebuilding process), you're not going to find it, short of hitting up a loan shark, perhaps.

    Orchard Bank has a great secured card specifically for people wanting to re-establish credit. The interest is only 7.9% (not to bad), they waive the annual fee for 1 month, and they report to all 3 credit bureaus. Usually the limit is $200 and if you keep your balance at 30% or less of that limit and pay it consistently on time for 6 months your scores will go through the roof.

    Try it, it works.

    Bad credit unsecured loans are simple and easy to get it. I suggest you go to e-creditloan.com to get the help you need in getting a loan.

    If any unsecured loan for someone with bad credit is "simple and easy to get", I would caution consumers to be wary of it. As has been said previously, if you're looking to build your credit scores, try out a secured credit card, keep your credit utilization ratio low, pay your balances off in full and on time, and your credit scores will improve over time.
