I currently have four payday loans and my bank account is negative $400 how can i stop this vicious cycle? one of the loans I have is with cashadvancenetwork, the ACH was returned unpaid because of NSF, but they keep sending it through Everyday! and every day its another $30 fee from my bank it never ends if I revoke ACH authorization,can they print a check on my behalf and submit it for payment? should i close my bank account? I also have payday loans with 500fastcash,unitedcashloans (all internet loans) and i have one with FASTCASH (storefront) i borrowed 500 and have paid 85 week for the past 3 months! i dont know what happens if i default with them because when i initally got the loan per their policy, i gave them 2 personal checks one for the loan amount and one for the finance fee in all they totaled about 800 can they do this? what was i thinking ?? i hope someone can answer some of my questions by the way i live in Texas what are the laws for these payday loan Co in my state?

The first thing you have to do is check the PDL laws in Texas. The concerned laws are given below: -
Maximum Loan Amount:
Loan Term: 7-31 days
Maximum Finance Rate and Fees: $10 per loan + 48% annual interest
Finance Charge for 14-day $100 loan: $12
apr for 14-day $100 loan: 309%

Debt Limits:
Maximum Number of Outstanding Loans at One Time: Not Specified ($500 aggregate loans outstanding to all licensees)
Rollovers Permitted: None (if renewal charge is less than maximum interest rate permitted; otherwise convert to declining balance installment note)
Cooling-off Period:
Repayment Plan:

Collection Limits:
Collection Fees: Not Specified
Criminal Action: Not Specified

I don't think that the first 3 payday loan companies you have mentioned, cashadvancenetwork, 500fastcash and unitedcashloans are licensed ones.

To disallow them from debiting money from your account you can close your bank account. Quote:
You are only obligated to pay back the principal amount you borrowed from an unlicensed/illegal Internet Payday Lender.
But before closing it please go through the following: -
IMPORTANT - Read before closing your bank account due to pdl

After closing the account send the following letter to the unlicensed pdls: -

I have notified my employer about this matter so any attempts to do so on your part will be rejected.

I recently made the HUGE mistake of using an internet payday loan service through 500 Fast Cash for $300.00. It was the first time I had ever done that before. I had some totally unexpected emergent bills that came up that needed to be taken care of right away and I was right in between pay days. After I took out the payday loan, I had a strong feeling that I had probably made a big mistake. I wanted to be done with it as soon as possible, so I called 500 Fast Cash and told them to make sure to take the entire $300 out of my bank account when it was due so that I could pay if off and get rid of them. On the day that my payment was scheduled to be debited from my bank account, they only had taken out $90. I called them as soon as I noticed this and told them that I had called over a week ago telling them to take out the entire $300 to pay my loan off. The person I got on the phone was VERY rude and said that they had no record of me ever calling them. After arguing with this person for a few minutes and telling her over and over again that I had called just after I had taken out the loan, I finally told them to just make certain that my entire loan is paid off on my next due date and not to just take the $90 fee out again. Two weeks later, they did it again. They only took out the $90 from my bank account. At this point, I didn't even bother calling them and got right on the phone with my state's consumer credit protection department. They tried to look up 500 Fast Cash and it turns out that they are not even licensed to do payday loans in my state. In fact, there are only 10 payday loan companies that are licensed in my state and 500 Fast Cash is definitely not one of them. The guy from consumer credit protection advised me to close my bank account ASAP and open up a new one if I could, which I just did today. The guy from the consumer credit protection department even told me that they have had a lot of complaints of payday loan companies lately. He told me that I will probably receive threatening calls from them, but that there is nothing they can do since I can't be legally bound to anything since they are not licensed in my state. I now have a new bank account that they don't have access to and I will NEVER do this again no matter what!

Hi snoopy,

What state do you live in?

If they are illegal in your state, they will harass you to get you money back, but can't do anything legally. If you owe them money, then you would need to try & make out an arrangement with them. If the companies are legal then you would need to make an arrangement with them as they can come after you for their money.

Took out a internet payday loan and bank closed account cause of the negative balance. I now have United Legal calling to threaten me because I have not paid it back, but they say it's through BMG Marketing which i do not remember getting the loan from. What are the laws regarding this in Ohio?
