Standing Order Technique for Prosper Non Autofunding Loans | P2P Lending, Peer to Peer Lending, People to People Lending

As regular readers know, the non auto funding loans are the bane of my greedy standing order algorithms. I have been experimenting with the advanced search sent out by Prosper in the recent overlooked listings email campaign (I have gotten 2 how about you?)…
