Hello, I would like to know if these payday loan companies are legal, Sagamore, 500Fast Cash, Rapid cash Management, and United Cash Loans, I live in the state of Pennsylvania and are they allowed to give out loans to people in PA. I closed out my bank account yesterday and they put a hard block on my closed account.

However, there is a loophole in Pa. If any of these pdl's are licensed in ANY other state, you must follow the laws of the state they are licensed in. :?

500 Fast Cash and United Cash Loans are part of MNE and as illegal as the day is long. Hope this helps.
