SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The website for LendingClub Corp, the online lending company which recently said an internal probe found it had falsified documentation when selling loans to an investor, went down Wednesday afternoon.

The company tweeted at about 4 p.m. Pacific time (2300 GMT)that it was "working to resolve a data center outage" and would be "back up and running soon." Lending Club representatives did not respond to a request for comment.
