I was told on another thread that LLS America (Little Loan Shoppe) is not licensed in FL. I live in Florida it's a $300 Internet based loan from LLS (Little Loan Shop). They are charging me $105 in fees every 2 weeks on a $300 loan. I sent them the template letter stating they were illegal and this is the response I received. Where do I go from here, my loan isn't beind right now but it will be as of wednesday......please advise.
