Hi, I currently have a $500 PDL with Amscott. Every two weeks i go in and pay it off and then take out another one in 24 hrs. The fee is $51 every two weeks. I am in such a hole from this now that I have had to retake the loan every two weeks for MONTHS!! I can't get out I tried going down by $50 everytime but that plus the fee is more then $200 a month I cant do it anymore I am so in the hole. I am going to see if there is anyway they can take payments to pay this off instead of the constant paying and renewing. I can't keep doing it. Can they sue me or can I get in legal trouble for not paying it back and doing a payment arrangement? It scares me because they take a check but i think legally if the check is post dated that they cant report me to the bad check system? Has anyone out here gone through Amscot and did a payment arrangement? I am afraid of the repercussion but I know I can't pay it back and can't keep doing this every two weeks. They make a $100 off me every month for probably the past 4 months or more.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
