Have you ever checked out the interest rates on "payday loans"? Your best bet would be to: 1. Talk with a financial counselor, 2. Talk with the various company's you may own money to and see if they will establish a payment plan for you. (Most will.) 3. Evaluate what you really need. It will amaze you what you can do without & not feel you are making a sacrifice. (For example: instead of a Hummer maybe you could do just as well in a VW.)

Based on what I've seen concerning payday loans from friends of mine is that about the only people benefiting from these loans are the folks who make the loans. Most of the companies that extend credit will usually reduce the amount of monthly payment IF you ask them and explain why you need the reduction.) (Don't make the mistake of NOT notifying the credit card company or lending institution.) The next step is to evaulate your expenses and stop spending more that you make. One way to do this is cut all all credit cards except maybe one that requires you to pay the comple balance each month - such as American Express.

My advice would be avoid payday loans and bancruptcy. Get yourself a good christian counseler. This person can show you the way out of debt and tell you what you have to do to stay out of debt. Pray to God for guidance for He will show you the way.

The best way to pay off debts is to get another job and start paying them off instead of getting into more debt with any kind of loans.

With this turgid economy, money is tight
for all of us. Avoid using Payday loans! The interest rate on these loans will be much higher than any bank. If you must borrow, try using a reputable finance company instead. Be certain to read the borrower terms prior to making the loan.
Best wishes for nice holiday season.

NO, NO, a thousand times NO!!!

These are nothing better than legalized loan sharks... The interest rates can be upwards of 750% and more.

If you are having financial troubles there are many things you can do. Contact your local Consumer Credit Counseling Service (be careful about these too.. some can be crooked. Talk to your creditors and see if they will do a repayment plan.

Just stay away from Payday loans!

Susan...You answered my question.
---SusieB on 10/26/08

What types of things did you see happening? How busy were those types of places?
---Susan on 10/26/08

Susan...When I needed a part-time job I went to work at one of these companies a couple of years ago. I saw many people who got in over their heads and could not repay them. I got out of that business because I didn't think it was somewhere that a Christian should work. Do you work for one of these companies? I can't think of any other reason why you would ask this kind of question on a Christian website.

I wouldn't recommend a payday loan, however sometimes some people may need them. Watch for the fee though as it can get very expensive.

How old were you Richard when you used payday loans and how did you talk your dad into paying your bills?
---Susan on 10/24/08


I used payday loans and got in over my head. You end up reusing them and it costs you a bundle. I had to get my dad to help me out of the mess and learned that I'm not too old to learn a lesson about financial responsibility from the flat side of his hairbrush.

Have any of you guys taken out a payday loan to truly know if they are that bad of a deal or are these just your guesses about these types of loans?

No,that is only adding to the problems you already have. A Payday Loan is the same as getting money from Loan Sharks with high interest and penalities which can drive what you owe into unbelievable amounts. The same is true with any loan company which charges high interest with accumalating penalities which can grow way past the amount you got in the first place. Pray and ask God to help you have wisdom about how to take care of your loans. The first major common sense step is not to engage in impluse or careless buying. Only buy what you need. Make out a budget and stick to it.

They do not have a payday loan that will pay off all your debts. If you want to get into a never-ending cycle, get one of those payday loans. The limit on most of them is $500 and the charge for that amount is around $85. When the loan is due, you will have a hard time paying it. Our friends got into that problem when they took out multiple payday loans and couldn't pay for even one of them. The payday loan companies require you to write them a check for the loan amount and the interest.
