Discount Advances is an illegal payday loan lender. All you need to do is payback the principal amount. No interests or fees.

EZ MONEY- illegal lender
check n go - legal lender
Discount Advance - illegal lender
ACE cash express - legal lender
Cash store - legal lender
Advance America- legal lender
Most of your lenders are licensed in Texas. You are liable to pay them both the principal and interest. In this case you may try to negotiate with your licensed lenders and set up a payment arrangement with them. As far as the illegal loans are concerned, you owe them only the principal balance, nothing more than that. Simply close down your old bank account and open a new one to stop debiting money from your account. Ask them for the refund as you have already overpaid them.
