Magnum Cash advance are pretty easy to work with as long as you keep sending them money. Their finance charges, however, will continue to accumulate on a DAILY basis, so watch out. Easiest way is to pay off as soon as you can.

Revise your state laws and know how much should be the actual charges added with the principal amount. After confirming the actual amount, send letters to the
magnum cash advance address. You will find various sample letters sent to different companies. Pick the one that suits to your situation and send it to the loan companies. You may also send an email to the magnum cash advance mailing address. You have to exercise your legal rights and claim for a refund from the companies whom you have paid excessively. This will be the right approach for you.

Go here:

Use this template letter and fill it in using the info I sent you above.
Figure out what you've paid, what you owe if anything, and appropriate amounts for interest in your state.
Send out letters to them all.
This will take some time and some hard work, and probably a few harrassing phone calls, but if you stick to your guns you'll be able to get them off your back.
Call you AG's office, your state Dept. of Bus. and Prof. Regulation that regulates licensing and report the crap out of them! File complaints against magnum cash advance and don't stop until you've made a nuisance of yourself.
Keep on the pdl's and demand a negotiable and satisfactory end to this! Get your accounts marked paid in full.

I did a licensing search and none of these are licensed to do business in California! Check the ripoff report. Tell them to take a flying leap off a steaming pile if they give you any crapola...

Close your account if you want. But if you are asked for a reason, beware that you have to say something logical for your closing the account. There should be a valid purpose so that the lender is unable to hold your move against you. I don't know whether or not they scam people.

Sub: #10 what states are magnum cash advance licensed in
Wed, 09/06/2006 - 13:39

It's a good idea to close your account. I closed mine immediately and then called them all and told them. I tried to make alternate payment arrangements that were affordable for me. As in a payment once a month. When that didn't work, I started sending them letters regarding their "illegal" licensing issues and called my state's regulatory board as well as the AG's office.
If this isn't something you don't feel you can do, I would suggest debt consolidation and work it out that way.
We've all been there, don't worry. They won't arrest you and you won't go to jail or be sued by them!
The worst is some may put you into a collection agency, and you may be able to dig out that way by negotiating. By the way does anybody know in what states magnum cash advance is licensed to operate?
