I am sure Mary might have helped you in the best possible way. I will like to post the link to this WI legislature website which will give you very useful info.


Read the permissible interest rates and the maximum amount of loan lent in your state. The lenders should not charge more than the permissible amount. Apart they have to be licensed first.

The company must be licensed in a state before issuing any loan. A consumer must be aware of this fact before entering into any agreement. Now, that you have already taken the loan from them, there is a need to pay them back. But it has to be within the permissible interest caps. They can't charge you above the rates fixed in your state. If they do so, you can file a case against them. The company will come under serious problems for not being licensed in your state and over charging you.

Please remember debt is a civil matter not criminal. There are no debtors prisons, we would all be there.

Karile, What is the name of the PDL? Some internet PDLs are illegal and even if you defaulted can not sue you.
