I am located in Alabama, where I understand Check'N'Go has a license to legally operate. However, I noticed that the "maximum loan amount" is $500. They gave me an installment loan for $2750. Obviously, the interest rate is outrageous. I've basically just about paid the entire principal, however upon calling to determine the settlement amount, they still want around $2400. So my question is-- although the lender is legal, is the loan legal in Alabama? Thanks in advance!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
