I live in DC and can't invest using Lending Club. My brother lives in CA and does. Is there any way to 'gift' him money or any other way to have him invest money for me? I want it to all be legal but would love to find a way to make this work.
It's perfectly legal for your brother to make a loan to you. However those two transactions are separate. If he defaults on the LC loan because you didn't pay him, it's his responsibility. If you default on your loan with him, you've got big problems. Money + family/friends = scary.
