Hi desertlife,
I am also from Indiana and recently went through the same thing. I don't know for sure, but I don't think CCC works with payday loans. They may have changed their policy, but I don't know. You've already taken care of your account which is good. The next thing you need to do is send out the revokation letter. Below is what I sent. I made sure to include the Indiana laws with the letters as you can see. I also included the letter from Mark Tarpey which states very difinitivley that they MUST be licensed in Indiana or the loan is null and void. So here is a list of things to put in your emails/letters to these loansharks.

    Verification of license to lend in Indiana
    Validation of debt
    Verification of all funds paid by you for either principle or interest
    A copy of the original contract signed by you electronically or otherwise
    Revoke ACH authorization
    Revoke any wage assignements you may or may not have signed (just include it to be safe they are dirty, sneaky, and a lot of other adjectives)
    Tell them you CANNOT take calls at work

Here is a copy of the emails I sent. You can cut and paste if you like and simply change what you need to in order to suit your needs.

Do some research here on this site to get the contact information for these companies if you don't already have it.
For the Loanshop email William Mashburn or Brad Weathers directly, CC a their customer service if you like. mr. mashburn is: wmashburn(at)ltsmanagement.com mr. weathers is : bweathers(at)ltsmanagement.com.

If you don't get anywhere sending the letters/emails, of if you just want to "carpet bomb" like I did.. Find out who processes their ACH's, and anybody else who is involved with these companies and send them all the same email. Send it as often as you like, i started sending mine every day. Then in place of "this is your formal request" I put "This is my sencond request" and so forth.

You can also contact the Indiana Attorney General's office at this email : constituent@atg.in.gov.

You can also contact the BBB in the state where the pdl has a mailing address, if you can find it.. pfff...

Make sure you tell them you know they are illegal:
If you have any questions, please ask.

This is my formal request for verification that the company is licensed within the state of Indiana, a validation of my debt and total amount owed including fees, validation of any amounts paid by me towards the principal of the loan, and a copy of my original loan contract and all forms signed by myself, either electronically or otherwise. I am revoking any wage assignments agreements I may or may not have signed effective immediatly (6-24-2008) as well as revoking all ACH authorization. It appears to me that you are in violation of Indiana State Law Ind. Code Ann. ???? 24-4.5-7-101 et seq., and that I have overpaid this loan by at least $200 according to the law. I am requesting that a refund of ALL amounts over paid by me mailed to me at my address on file.

Since you do not seem to be willing or able to provide me with the requested information, I will be filing a complaint with the BBB as well as with the Indiana State Attorney General. You may contact me via email or USPS with the address on file only. Please see information below. Thank you in advance.

NOTICE TO UNLICENSED INDIANA LENDERS WHO ARE SOLICITING
BUSINESS IN INDIANA
Investigation by the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions (???????Department???????) has
determined that your company is among several unlicensed entities making or offering
consumer loans to residents of Indiana via the internet.
Depending on the type of loan being offered, your company is in violation of IC 24-4.5-
3-502 and/or IC 24-4.5-7-102. These statutes reference consumer loans, and/or Small
Loans (commonly referred to as ???????Payday Loans???????) and require a license issued by this
office in order to make these consumer loans.
During the recently concluded session of the Indiana General Assembly, there was a
change to the statute governing the territorial application of the Indiana Uniform
Consumer Credit Code, including the Indiana Small Loan Act. Effective July 1, 2007, IC
24-4.5-1-201 requires internet lenders to be licensed, and to comply with Indiana law,
when making loans to Indiana residents. Additionally, IC 24-4.5-1-201( reads ???????If a
creditor has violated the provisions of this article that apply to the authority to make
consumer loans (IC 24-4.5-3-502), the loan is void and the debtor is not obligated to pay
either the principal or loan finance charge, as set forth in IC 24-4.5-5-202.???????
You are advised to Cease and Desist the offering of these types of loans to Indiana
residents unless/until you have obtained the proper Indiana loan license. Consumers will
be advised that these loans are not in compliance with Indiana Statutes and that these
loans are considered null and void, and as a result, uncollectible. Additionally, the
Department may seek injunctive relief under IC 24-4.5-6 in the event of continued noncompliance.
All Financial Institutions operating within the state of Indiana will be advised that
electronic payment and / or paper/check transactions connected with these illegal loans
should be rejected if an entity is unlicensed. Consumers will also be advised on the
procedure to stop electronic debits to their accounts using return codes.
Questions concerning the acquisition of a loan license may be directed to this office.
Information is also available via our website at www.in.gov/dfi
Sincerely,

Mark B. Tarpey
Supervisor ???????? Consumer Credit Division
