Please remember that Florida is a non garnishment state. They can only garnish up to 25 percent and only with your written permission. If you signed any "wage assignment agreement" that is a different thing. You must revoke that. They can not take any criminal action against you under Florida law either. What payday loan company is it? Some are not licensed and can only make threats. Someone here will have experience with them and will tell you what they are all about

damion,

You can not be arrested for not paying a debt. It is a civil matter not criminal.

Florida law prohibits any debt collector from threatening criminal action! Even an originasl creditor! You can file a suit against them for that! Also if a payday lender is not licensed in Florida the debt is non collectable under the Florida Consumer Financial Act regardless of the geographic location of the lender.

Can anyone give me any information of the following companies as far as legalities in the state of florida? The one, in particular, FOX, is really shady. I called them and they cussed me up one side and down the other for asking for a mailing address.

unitedcash.com
fox enterprises
m1ydirect
paragon
loanshoponline.com


Also, how much can they charge in florida per 100?

Thanks in advance!!
Robyn
