Misrepresentation of Identity
Prosper does not permit members to misrepresent themselves as Prosper employees, other Prosper members, or other non-member individuals. To report a member who is attempting to misrepresent himself or herself, please contact customer support with the member's screen name.
Prosper is committed to maintaining the security and confidentiality of your personal and financial information. Beware of identity thieves and other unscrupulous people who try to trick you into giving them your personal or financial information. To try to get this type of information from you, one of these crooks might send you an email claiming to be Prosper or another Prosper member and requesting personal information such as your name, address, Social Security number, passwords or credit card or account numbers. These requests might say it is important for members to reply with sensitive information by email, or contain links to web pages that request members to sign in and submit information. Do not reply to any of these emails.
Prosper never asks members to send personal information through email. If Prosper ever requires sensitive information, it will always be entered on the Prosper site.
If you receive an email message requesting passwords, Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers or other sensitive information, contact customer support immediately and do not reply to the sender.
