I would ike to know how you can find out if the payday loan companies are legal in PA. Also I took advice and closed out my bank account and put a hard ACH block on my old account. My bank said that under no circumstance should I have any problems at all and these companies cannot call the bank anbd ask for any info because they are not authorized to do so.

Payday loans are prohibited in PA, but there is a loophole. Whatever state the pdl's are licensed in, is the state laws you have to abide by. :?
