Here are 6 problems with the listing.
I sent the borrower the following message through the Prosper message system.
Welcome to Prosper.
Not sure if you realize or not but I referred you to Prosper.
I noticed that you have created a listing. You are doing fine so far, but given your credit it is imperative to create a great listing. I would like to help you get a loan on Prosper.
I write a Prosper Lender Blog (http://rateladder.com/) and run the statistics site ProProsper (http://www.proprosper.com).i/ have written a small tutorial for creating a great listing. While the tutorial is on my group page, please don’t bother to join a group as it is not needed.
Just looking at your listing you did a couple of things that are easy to fix and make a big difference.

If you are interested in having your listing featured on RateLadder there are 2 ways to make this happen. You can chose to do both, but only one is necessary for receiving a listing review.
I cannot write about the extended credit of these listings as that data is protected by the Prosper Terms of Service. If you are a lender then I encourage you to log in and look for yourself, but if you leave a comment please don’t talk specifically about the extended credit. If you are not a registered user of Prosper and would like to be a lender I have a referral that will get you a $25 bonus when you make your first loan (click the link).
