Cash Advance® does not make credit decisions nor does Cash Advance® conduct a credit inquiry on consumers. Some lenders on the Cash Advance® network may conduct a non-traditional credit check in order to determine your eligibility for a loan. Lenders typically do not conduct a credit inquiry with the three major credit bureaus: Transunion, Experian, or Equifax. If you do not repay your loan on time your lender may report this delinquency to one or more credit bureaus, which could have a negative impact on your credit score. We encourage consumers with credit problems to consult a Credit Counseling company.

Predatory lenders are always happy to offer emergency loans to desperate folks. The problem is that many of the emergency loans out there have interest rates and terms that are likely to lead to a debt spiral. What starts as an emergency lifeline could leave borrowers drowning in debt. Here are some red flags that anyone shopping for an emergency loan should look out for:
Over and over, statistics show that payday loan companies aim to take advantage of poor consumers. You’ll seldom find any payday loan stores in the upper-middle class suburbs of the city, where borrowers could actually afford to repay the loans. Instead, you’ll find them in the poor and black neighborhoods of the city and near military bases. For example, a Yahoo Maps search resulted in 12 cash advance and payday loan businesses within 5 miles of Fort Knox, Kentucky, a U.S. military post.
There are no national standards for payday lending – each state regulates the industry individually. In some states, such as Wisconsin, there are no restrictions. In states like that, Cash Central charges up to $27 per $100 borrowed, which is on the higher end but not uncommon among the lenders we reviewed. States like California and Washington have restrictions on the maximum amount a lender can charge. The lowest amount we saw Cash Central charge is $15 per $100 borrowed.
Revolving credit isn't available to everyone. It takes time and resources to develop good credit, but for those without, getting approved for a credit card often depends on your ability to secure the credit line with a cash deposit. If you had the cash, would you need the credit? Probably not, so secured credit cards do not offer any emergency relief. When you live paycheck to paycheck, an unexpected illness, layoff or any other paycheck interruption could leave you looking at eviction notices, saying goodbye to your car or facing other financial disasters. When you need a loan, you need it quickly and without a lot of paperwork. That's where fast cash loans come in.
