Where can I get info to sent to the PDL's that say that they have to go by laws in my state of California and not their own laws?




I am not sure if there is such a letter. You could try searching it in the search box at the top of this page. You could also just make that statement in a communication to them.

ARE THERE LIMITATIONS ON THE NUMBER OF DEFERRED DEPOIST TRANSACTIONS A LICENSEE MAY MAKE TO A CUSTOMER IN A 12-MONTH PERIOD?

No. There are no limits on the number of deferred deposit transactions a licensee may make to a customer in a 12-month period. A licensee cannot make a new deferred deposit transaction during the period an earlier deferred deposit transaction is in effect for the same customer and the proceeds of a new deferred deposit transaction may not be used to pay off an existing deferred deposit transaction from the same licensee.

IS A LICENSEE ALLOWED TO MAKE A NEW DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION TO A CUSTOMER THAT HAS AN EARLIER DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION THAT IS IN EFFECT FROM ANOTHER LOCATION OF THE SAME LICENSEE.

No. Licensees with multiple locations cannot enter into a deferred deposit transaction with a customer during the period an earlier deferred deposit transaction is in effect for the same customer at any of the licensee's locations.

CAN A LICENSEE USE A CUSTOMER'S PERSONAL CHECK OR THE CUSTOMER'S ELECTRONIC EQUIVALENT OF A PERSONAL CHECK RECEIVED FROM A PREVIOUS DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION FOR A NEW DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION?

No. A licensee is not permitted to accept or use a customer's personal check or a customer's electronic equivalent of a personal check received from a previous deferred deposit transaction for a new deferred deposit transaction.

IS A LICENSEE ALLOWED TO EXTEND THE DUE DATE OF AN OUTSTANDING DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION OR ALLOW THE CUSTOMER TO MAKE PAYMENTS ON AN OUTSTANDING DEFERRED DEPOSIT TRANSACTION?

Yes, though the licensee is not required to extend the due date or enter into an agreement to allow the customer to make payments on an outstanding deferred deposit transaction.

A licensee may allow an extension of time to repay an outstanding deferred deposit transaction or a payment plan, but may not charge any additional fees or charges of any kind in conjunction with the extension or payment plan.

IS A LICENSEE PERMITTED TO DEBIT A BORROWER'S BANK ACCOUNT ELECTRONICALLY USING ACH TRANSFERS ON MULTIPLE DAYS FOR VARYING AMOUNTS TO COLLECT A DELINQUENT ACCOUNT WITHOUT THE BORROWER'S AUTHORIZATION?

Any addendums to the agreement authorizing the licensee to debit the borrower's bank account electronically to collect overdue accounts must be in writing signed by the borrower, by fax with the borrower's signature or electronically authorized by the borrower over the Internet. The written agreement should cover the manner in which a customer's check will be deposited and the specific date of deposit.

If the licensee wishes to deposit the check either manually or electronically when there are insufficient funds in the customer's account, the written agreement should also specify the method and date of depositing the check under those circumstances.

There is a Q & A on the CA DFI website that states that internet lenders must still be licensed.
