Below is a complaint against Global Lending Services from a real consumer, taken from the GLS BBB profile:
“I have had my car with Global Lending Services since 5/01/2019. My monthly payment is $415.88. My principal balance is $16,723.40. I have paid $17,293.80 to this date, and they say I still have $10,000 plus to pay. How can I see why? How is this possible? The last time I called, they told me that I had to call and say I wanted to pay on my payoff quote for it to go toward my principal balance. This is ridiculous. If so, I would just be handing them free money. Why else would I be paying for it not to go to my principal balance? They managed to put $6,000 towards it. What about the other $11,000?”
