TikTok LLC Loans Scheme, also known as TikTok Defrauding Banks Grindset Trend, refers to a series of hustle culture and sigma grindset TikTok videos revolved around a controversial trend in which people encourage the creation of businesses as LLCs (Limited Liability Company) in order to qualify for bigger bank loans and credit lines. Videos of men showing how they managed to take large loans from banks and extend their credit lines up to $50,000 began circulating on TikTok in late 2022 and garnered wider interest after Twitter users began to notice and discuss what was essentially a scam meant to defraud banks under false pretenses.
Sometime in late 2022, various TikTokers began to post videos about how one can purportedly get a business approved as an LLC without needing to provide their SSN and then acquire a loan for $50,000 without providing any documentation. The posts have been described by other internet users as "scams" or schemes meant to "defraud banks."
Some of the earliest known videos discussing the controversial method were posted around the beginning of 2022. For example, one of the earliest known posts was uploaded on February 7th, 2022, by TikToker @irv.official who posted a video talking about how his free training course can show you how to get $50-$75 business funding for an LLC, gathering over 500,000 views and 25,000 likes in nearly a year (seen below, left). On June 6th, 2022, TikToker @mariolallitto posted a video about how he got approved for a $50,000 credit line without giving his SSN, gathering over 60,000 views and 1,400 likes in nearly seven months (seen below, right).
