DEYOUNG: This is why price caps are a bad idea. Because if the solution was implemented as I suggest and, in fact, payday lenders lost some of their most profitable customers – because now we’re not getting that fee the 6th and 7th time from them – then the price would have to go up. And we would not let the market determine whether or not at that high price we still have the need to use the product.
Protections for servicemembers. There are special protections through the federal Military Lending Act (MLA) for active duty servicemembers and their dependents. These protections include a cap of 36 percent on the Military Annual Percentage Rate (MAPR) as well as other limitations on what lenders can pay for payday and other consumer loans. Contact your local Advocate General’s (JAG) office to learn more about lending restrictions. You can use the JAG Legal Assistance Office locator to find help.
I received an email from a law enforcement officer. He claimed that I have a cash advance Inc. money and that they were getting ready to take legal action against me. The seal on the email said 712th non court court court. They were expecting a reply from me so I gave them one.
The CFPB does not have the authority to limit interest rates. Congress does. So what the CFPB is asking for is that payday lenders either thoroughly evaluate the borrower’s financial profile or limit the number of rollovers for a loan, and offer easy refund terms. Payday lenders say even these regulations may just be put out of business – and they may be right. The CFPB estimates that the
4 .. Just a person working for a company that used a VoiP phone number, no information about this company on the net. Said they were a mediator; but she had all the right info, name, old address, ss # old email address, and my bank account with router number and my wife’s name. and a sympathetic ear. (do not know if that is just a tatic to establish trust)
they got my work phone # through my company cell phone. He (the law enforcement official) as he represented himself would not give his company info or address. When I asked for written verification, he refused and said the police were on the way to get me. He had a similar conversation with my boss the night before. He did have my bank information, at least the name of my bank. I had already called the FTC and started a case, when I gave the reference number and the investigators name, he said the cops should be there any minute and hung up on me. He then tried to call my work again and hung up while being on hold. I am a criminal justice major and I have to say that it shook me up. I called my financial institution and really I am in good standing, transferred my debit money to savings, cancelled my debit card, and called the trans-union to flag my social for fraud. The charge as I got him to admit was writing bad checks on my debit account, really ???! I do not know if I will receive any further calls since I throw down the trumpet of the FTC, start a case, get a reference #. Can I ask for help from local law enforcement? Their call back # gets to them.
Im glad you posted this, i just lost $ 150 to this [redacted]. So today I had a similar call about another payday loan i supposedly had taken out, but didnt. I will be blocking my debit card now, thank you for posting.
Paul – I know it’s not easy, but stop stressing. These guys are sitting in some of the country’s most popular people as they can. They can not hurt you. So understand that and do not let them scare you.
I just had this happen and

You should not be frightened by email threats with online payday loans. They are almost certainly scams. Legitimate debt collectors know that under federal law they must send written notification of the debt. Do not engage with these folks and feel free to report them to the Internet Crime Complaint Center. Please read: 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer
Ana – Do not pay a penny until you verify this is definitely a legitimate debt. Ask them to send you a written notice of the debt by mail (not email or fax). This is your right under federal law. If they refuse to call Fraud.org for advice as it’s probably a scam.
Do not give them access to your checking account, they will clean you out. Instead send in a check or MO by CMRRR. No offer letter, no check and get off the phone. They want money from you they will send it. And do not be intimidated by that favorite phrase of theirs that they will record “refusal to pay” against you. Big deal, bite my ankle. It means squat and has no legal standing at all.
Does anyone have an address for these companies? I have been contacted by The Law Offices of Jeffrey Abate, Cashnet, and today the Department of Legal Services. When I asked for an address to validate the debt I was hung up on. I’ve been harassed for months now with calls to work, home and my cell phone. When I asked to not call my work I was told too bad. Which yes I know is against the law. I have filed reports with the FTC and the AG in Washington State with no luck because I do not have an address! HELP!
• Do not let one of these companies scare you into making payments if you’re not sure you owe the debt. In most cases, collectors must first take you to court and get a judgment before they can go after your pay or property. (If you live in Minnesota, however, read this warning.)
So far I’ve closed the account and opened up a new one. Put fraud alert on my credit reports and requested from my bank transactions from the years of the CRS Solutions have me the loans were supposedly taken out.

Defaulting on a loan is not a “felony violation” and what they are saying and doing is illegal under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The next time you talk with them, ask them to send you a confirmation of the debt-which they are required to do by law. If they refuse, you can tell them that they are breaking the law and you will pursue legal action if they continue to call and harass you.
I received a calling phone call from number 701-212-1223 stating that I had owed a payday lone in the price of $ 2097.00 and that if i did not care about this that there would be a sherrif at my door to take me to jail and for e to appear in court.

t there, “he says.
I would recommend you report this to the CFPB and the FTC. Give them as much information as you have about the caller. Next time they call, tell them at the outset you will be recording the call to turn over to law enforcement. Hopefully then they will realize they’re not going to get anything from you and move on.
You do your best to ask as many questions as you can of the research and of the researchers themselves. You ask where the data comes from, whether it means really what they say it means, and you ask them to explain why they might be wrong, or compromised. You make the best judgment you can, and then you move forward and try to figure out how the research really matters. Because the whole idea of the research, is likely to help solve some big problem.
FULMER: We have to wait for the final proposal rules to come out. But where they appear to go is down a path that would simply eliminate a product instead of reforming the industry or better regulating the industry.

Cash advances often cost 3 to 5 percent of the amount being borrowed. When made on a credit card, the interest is often higher than other credit card transactions. The interest compounds daily starting from the day cash is borrowed.

I know you’re panicked about this, but do not be. Social Security payments are generally safe from creditors. (If you have a federally guaranteed loan your Social Security funds may be at risk but even then you will be notified in the phone and not from the phone call out of the blue.)
