Prosper has asked me to publish the following response:
Thanks for keeping up-to-date on the latest Prosper newsletter. In the Borrower Success Story that you’ve quoted (above), we faithfully reproduced his submitted story without changes. The user's Borrower Success Story quoted the interest rate of "13.4%" when, as you pointed out in your blog, his borrower rate was actually "14.3%." Going forward with the newsletter, we will diligently fact-check each story before publication.
Thanks for posting,
Hey, whadda ya know, they read my blog!
