I've said it once and will say it again...Do not deal with these Loan Shark's!

Payday & Title Loans
Consumers who borrow money from so-called "payday lenders" end up paying $4.2 billion in excessive fees, the Center for Responsible Lending estimates.

The group's study finds that across the nation payday borrowers are paying more in interest, at annual rates of 400 percent, than the amount of the loan they originally borrowed. "Americans who think they're getting a two-week loan and end up trapped in debt," the report says.

This is an understatement, judging by the complaints we have received and those filed with Consumer Affair's, The Attorney general's office and the BBB!
