Reading about a scam with company I have loan with...

member profile picture

So, I'm doing research on the current company I have an internet pdl out with. I'm an IL resident and am trying to determine if they're licensed... ,in doing research on the internet, I'm seeing bunches of complaints about how they lure in the customers and then never deposit the money. Well, they deposited my money and haven't faulted on the contract to me yet... but the more I've learned on here, the more I want to see if this contract is even legal in the state of IL.

I borrowed $200 and have paid $48 in finance fees so far. I can roll-over my loan each time and have the $48 deducted from my account instead of the full amount owed.

I also have an internet pdl out with Power Funding. I borrowed $300 and have paid $90 in roll-over/finance fees. Wondering if they're licensed, too.

If these companies are NOT licensed, what's the next step I should take?

Oh and one more thing...

Each time I go to to check out my loan details, I always have to reset my password as they claim the one I'm entering is not the correct one. I'm been re-setting it with the same password each time...

Well assuming if they are not licensed or LEGAL, I would put a hard block on my accounts at the bank or either close it. This way your money is protected. Please read this link before doing so: ount.html

Next, send out proposal letters to the companies stating you are only obligated to pay the principal of your loan and that is it. You need to calculate how much you have paid already in fees (rollovers). Most important rollovers are NOT permited in your state. So whatever you have paid counts towards principal of your loan. If you paid $144 on that $200 loan then you only LEGALY owe $56 PERIOD :wink:

Please make sure you list each company and the amount you paid so far. Others will be along to help you out as well. Best of Luck :P
