Progressive Loan Assistance is a payday loan debt settlement company. Their fees are a little higher than some other settlement companies that handle payday loans. You may want to shop around and compare with other companies in that industry or settle the debts on your own.

Progressive Loan Assistance helped me out a lot!!! Was able to get out of payday loan debt in about 12 months. In the beginning it was difficult, because the creditors kept calling but they begin to stop and Progressive begin doing what they said they would and got all of my debt paid off and even got some settled for less then what i owed. They did a great job. You can call there main number and speak with a counselor if you would like. No soliciting.

Make sure you find out if your payday lenders are licensed in your state FIRST before you comitt to a debt settlement company, manyInternet lenders are NOT licensed, there is no negotiating with unlicensed lenders.

Shazzers I beg to differ, those unlicensed will settle easier and for way less than the licensed companies, I had a few pdl with some unlicensed companies and one of them I owed 900.00 and settled for less since they couldn't legally do anything to me. The legal companies are the ones that would barely negotiate.

For anyway needing PDL help, I would recommend Progressive Loan Assistance, in Florida. They are upfront, helpful and I used them and now I'm out of my mess I got into.... You just have to make your payments and then the debts go down. Of course their fee is high but it was worth it to me, not to have to deal with the hassle and Progressive employees were very courteous and upfront, they never sugar coated anything and I found them credible and good at negotiating.
