Even if it's not a scam it's still a scam.

Maybe, but it's more of a general reference. One I definitely fit into though

Didn't mean "you" personally. I have a policy of not picking on new fathers. At least for the first week.  :)

You people are all wrong. It's for the boomers. They are too lazy to figure out how these things work and just direct all questions to us millennials who actually make the effort to learn how these things, like websites, actually work.

One thing's for sure, it's not for my generation (whatever it's called) as I am neither a boomer nor a millennial.

Is it so complicated to follow instructions and complete an application? We're not talking about a tax return.

+1. It got even easier recently with the new website. Basically fool proof. Less steps, too. Conditional approval was granted within a couple of days, as opposed to several weeks a few years ago.

I feel like it would be more complicated to go through a website like this than just doing the application yourself, you'll still have to send them all your info.

There are ppl that would rather have someone tell them what to do then read a 3 step instruction process. This is for ppl that are actually paying for GE etc not for getting them here for $15..

True, but they would have someone tell them exactly what to do.
