Be careful about giving out your information. Whether or not your visit to an online payday loan site results in a loan, simply entering information on the site may come back to haunt you.

Loan aggregators, also called lead generators, can — and do — sell the information included on loan applications, and potential borrowers may not even know it. The application may ask for your name, address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security number, bank or credit card account number, annual income, and more.

Nothing I can do. Illegal collectors collecting illegal debts is a matter for the FBI! After you report them, take a deep breath. Weed, thank you so much for the information in this blog. I live in Virginia and have been drowning in internet payday loans. Your blog has given me hope.
This is their website address: It seems as if nothing I pay ever really goes to the principal, I am just paying interest. I have looked for them on this website: Can you please provide me with some advice.
So when i filled out the application online and selected VA as my state, and they funded me, does that mean they are legal? Or does that mean they are taking a chance hoping i dont find out that they are illegal in Va?
Also at their enormous interest rates, they can afford to not get paid by some people and still make a whole lot of money. Thanks Robert for this post! Upon reading I immediately got hope in that there really is a way to get out of the payday loan mess I got myself into. I think on usury law alone this is illegal from what Ive recently learned. Over these different loans spanning about 2. Some even suggested requesting a refund for any overpayment above principal.
Have you ever heard of getting refunds based on this? I will definitely be letting them know I am not paying. They have received enough money from me! Do you have any idea what the ramifications would be if I were to close my checking acct.
My husband got a loan on the intenet from plain green loans. We found out it was illegal soon after. This was not the 1st one he has had and has paid them all off before when we found out it was illegal we called them and told them we would not pay them bc they were illegal here in va and they could use all the interest that we paid before to pay this debt off.
They have now sent it to Nca which I just spoke to and told her it was illegal. What can I do now? Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, it would be a violation to misrepresent the legal status of a debt.
If you are in Virginia, you could talk to Jason Krumbein http: If you are not in Virginia, look for lawyers here. Internet payday loans are illegal in Virginia—and many states. And they can only make money if the legal banks handle their payments. You can read more about that here. Maybe the new Attorney General of Virginia will go after those scammers, too.
I have since relocated due to employment I was unemployed at the time of the loan. However, I was unaware that this company was not and is not licensed to do business in VA. Now, I have received threatening phone calls to garnish my wages in my new state of residence KY. Can they do that? Try googling the phone number they are calling you from. Also, do you know what the allowable interest rate for these types of loans is?
Does a company called pre-legal checks systems exist? I received a call from someone named Fred Reynolds. His phone number came up as restricted or blocked. He left a voice message and left the number He said that his jobs is to try to settle it before it goes to court. He said if I go to court they can ask for as much as dollars. Can they do this in the state of Virginia?
Does this make sense or this a scam of some sort? Again I already paid this company back. I also contacted the Federal Trade Commision and they said that internet installment loans do not need to be licensed in Virginia? Is any of this true? Google the phone number. If it is the number of a legit business, the business will come up. I just received a call from a similar number, but he gave me his name as Frank Reynolds.
I am being told i took a online payday loan in here in the state of va. Was that law in effect then? A third party called me tried to collect and upon asking for their real phone number they have a number generator they hung up.
And probably they told you everything they need to know when they hung up after you asked for their real phone number. I had taken a payday loan out with a company called My Cash Now back in I initially took the loan out in I was making payments on what I owed until March because it seemed as if I was never going to finish paying. The remander of the balance was I did not see them on the site you posted in a previous post, however I am worried that they will send me to court and or tarnish my criminal record.
A little while later I recieved a call from Century Claims stating the case was passed on to them and they could set up payment arrangements, I took their number and told them I would have to speak to my lawyer first and would get back to them.
I am in Northern Virginia and just was not sure what to do. Whatever else you decide to do, you should report them. I also have a loan with Western Sky, a.
I saw your answer to Paul S, so I understand that this loan is illegal in Virginia based on your reply. What action should I take? Can we make an appointment so you can hear my case and fight this guys?
What do you need to fight them about? Are they hitting your credit report? I do see them do that…. I have to loans from online one from cashnet. Weed, my question is I had a payday loan with a place called First Virginia and Allied Cash Advance — They are not internet loans, but they actually have buildings in VA.
The only thing is they are not listed on the list of Payday Lender Licenses. They have a collection agency from a different state — trying to collect. If they are not on the list are they legal in VA? What I know about Allied Cash advance is here. Unfortunately, it does not exactly answer your question. Allied thinks they are legal under a loophole in Virginia law, saying they are not a payday loan; they are a short term lender.
Any info would be appreciated. Also I have a loan with advance America which is a licensed VA lender that I gave a check to at the beginning of the loan. Weed your blog is inspirational and hopeful for all of us dealing with these issues. The other site that claims to get back money form illegal lenders probably wants your account info, so they can take more from you. NCA referenced in the beginning of this blog has purchased my loan with plain green loans and has apparently put something negative on my credit report.
Should I schedule a consultation with your office or a consumer rights lawyer. I stopped paying my payday loans back in April and am now receiving calls from people like Levy Brown and Keller and the such just need an idea of where to go to put these people in there place. How do you know that. Have you gone to annualcreditreport. Or are they just telling you that.
And I have learned the hard way about these internet loans. I believe in paying my Debts and was going to pull money from my Retirement Savings to pay them off but, I was doing the math we had payed back the loans double if not triple and balance has gone no where and I was just telling my husband that I was going to stop making payments because, enough is enough!
Reason I deceided to research and see if this was illegal and if it would effect my credit! Thank You and God Bless You. Most recently I revoked their permission to withdraw from my account, but they did it anyway.
This caused my account to overdraw. Are they legal and do I have anything to stand on? Have you complained to your bank. Did you tell the bank to try to block them? Cashnetusa stopped debiting a couple of times, but they did take a payment this past Friday. So they are illegal? Well a stop payment would have cost less than having Cashnetusa take money out.
Cashnetusa taking the money out was certainly illegal. My blog tell you all you need to know to figure out if the the loan was illegal, too. You need to figure out what you are going to do about it. Well I went to the bank. So at this point I am stuck. But knowing they are illegal is a big help.
Any suggestions on how to get the bank to comply and not allow them to take it again? I made the same mistake in with Western Sky now going by CashCall. I live in Virginia. Now they are calling and harassing my references. Any suggestions would be of great help.
I can;t afford to loose friends or continue with this nightmare.. Harassing your references to collect an illegal debt is probably wire fraud. The State of New York went after some of these guys, just now. Ok, asking this for a friend in VA: They claim to be some type of tribal loan?
Should he have to repay those? It stated that you waive all rights or something like that. Any information would be helpful! Thanks again for your awesome blog!! I will have him contact them in order to stop the money from continuing to come out his account so that he can afford to pay other bills. Thanks again for all of your help!! Trying to help a friend out of some illegal payday loans and he recently got this response from CashNet when he revoke his ach authorization and question their legality.
Our Kansas License number is SL. I wish I knew more than I do. These guys will constantly come up with reasons why they say they are NOT illegal. They are not going to admit to a felony. CashnetUSA has never sued anyone in the largest court in Virginia. That tells you all you need to know. Your information is extremely helpful. So cashnetusa is illegal in Virginia?
What do you know about spotloan? Should I pay either? You can figure out what to do from there. All 4 are legal according to the representative from the Department of financial institution.
Nonetheless, I would be prepared to repay them or hire Mr. Weed because the first 2 claim to give you a line of credit, which allows you to keep withdrawing, and inflict any interest rates they want. I figured that they advertise as a payday lender, but the lady from DFI says that that advertisement is dependent on the state, so it changes. They have statutes for lenders and borrowers.
You should look into it since this is your area of expertise so you say. I followed your suggestion. You can look and see if the people you have loans with are on that list. Report them to the FBI. The link is at the bottom of this page.
