PDL Settling Advice

Submitted by sister on Sat, 05/10/2008 - 09:43

I live in texas and have taken out 5 pay day loans....i defaulted on two of them and the other three are approaching....i cannot close my bank account because of a direct deposit advance i have with the bank...i have already open a new account ....my question is ....i want to settle with each PDL ..before they run up NSF fees in my bank account .should i do this through an attorney or debt management service ...before i lose my mind...which one will anyone advise to use ...

I dont like debt management companys personally. They have to pay for their staff and rent somenhow and I'm thinking its on YOUR dollar......and an attorney seems like money you really dont have at this point.

I have never taken out a Payday loan so I dont know to much about that but, i would suggest calling the company and asking them to work out a fair and reasonable payment plan. I would then call your employer and ask them if they can pay you via check not direct deposit. If this is possible you should then only deposit slightly more into the checking account then you expect the payments to be. This should protect you from any dishonest companys that would just empty your account.

Then in the future I would make other arrangements then payday loans. If you cant afford your bills this week why would you pat 10% or whatever to pay them next week?

I agree with CMB.............if you try to go through some kind of Debt Management Co., you're probaly paying MORE to the Co. then you are paying to the PDL's. Also.....in SISTER's 'defense'. You may get SOO behind in bills, you just don't know what to do. If your Credit score isnot good enough to get a loan, you tend to go to other resources. With PDL's, they don't check your credit. Also...you are in a 'frame of mind', I guess you really don't think of the 'repurcussions' when you 'sign on the dotted line'. PDL's are hard to deal with. Talking from personal experience.

They are very hard to deal with indeed, the collection agencies that they hire are also pretty nasty. Pay day loans are illegal in my state, so I have gotten the attorney generals office involved right away. I have paid back more than I have borrowed and they don't want to work with me so this is the only way that I could get any type of cooperation from them. I am presently dealing with one from last year. I have contacted both my state attorney general and theirs to make sure that they will follow the credit collection laws. I don't know what will come of it, but the phone calls have stopped and I still have not recieved anything as far as the debt validation that I have requested. Still waiting, hopefully I won't either.

I REALLY don't know which PDL's are legal in my state or not..state of PA. I DO have a few outstanding ones, but ( the same with me..) they don't want to work with me, either. I told them how much I can afford to send them, each month. Guessit's not good enough for them. Well.......EXCUSE ME!!LOL I feel I'm 'doing my part' to take care of these..why shouldn't they?

they are illegal in the state of pennsylvania, I live in pa and know this for sure. If they keep harrassing you file a complaint with the pennsylvania state attorney generals office, they will contact them and let them know the law. I had two give me paid in full letters because they contacted them, who are the companies that you are dealing with?

i also have many payday loan balances out there. i have been paying on some of them for almost 6 - 8 mos. the differance between the original amt. and the amt. they are currently taking is ridiculus. some that i am paying back to exceed the original amt. by 200-300 dollars. My bank contacted me today and TOLD me to close my checking account. they said i paid the pdl co. back the initaial deposit that went into my account, and now i am just paying illegal interest fees. my concern is, the pdl co. state i still owe them money and i don't know what action they can take against me? Phone calls, mail? i need to know if any one is or was in this situation?

I feel your pain Amy, I was once in that situation, fortunately I have been able to work mine out to a manageable situation. It takes time.

The payday loan companies are making a killing off people who fall into their traps. I wish you all the luck in the world when it comes to getting out of this mess.

There are people who unfortunately see the payday loans as the only way out, then they get trapped in a viscious circle.

I agree with you goodnatured. Payday loans can never be a good idea to meet immediate financial requirements until and unless all other options are closed. These loans come with very high rate of interest and can put you in debt circle. So I think one should charge the amount to the credit card, if he has one, rather than going for a payday loan.

Definately explore all options before borrowing from a payday lender, they can rob you blind. You will be in worse shape later with these lenders than you are now.

Tue, 07/15/2008 - 02:34 Permalink

Moreover, before opting for a pay day loan, you may look for other sources of getting loans, like advance from employers, or borrowing from a close friend, if any or charging from your credit card. Payday loan must be the last resort and must be used only in case of emergency.

I've had PDL's also, and I defaulted on all of them, but I managed to close out my checking account and open up a new one, which you stated that you have done. Our pay periods are the 15th and the 31st of each month so within my next pay period the change took effect for the new account. I still get e-mails/letters from the pdl companies and now I just send them what I can afford until paid in full based on the address information on my credit report. At least now I don't have them targeting my account and putting me in the negative.

your dream for User's Rights

Adblock Plus has existed since 2006, But has only risen to prominence within the past decades. to date, Over 300 million copies of Adblock Plus have been purchased. Pretty impressive for an free project. So successful in fact that many mainstream sites will plead with you to disable ad blocking tools to allow them to keep getting revenue.

Adblock as well as (ABP from now on) Has gained many followers for helping users disable annoying popup ads and ads that are otherwise obtrusive. The tools and the people behind it realize that much of the free content we get today is made possible by the advertising revenue these types of receive. so, ABP come up with Acceptable Ads initiative. This initiative was meant to find a balance between the need for advertising revenue while also forcing ad makers to respect their viewers. The thing sets criteria such as requiring ads to be clearly labeled, Specific ad sizes and even keeping ads. If promoters met these criteria, They could apply to acquire their ads whitelisted by ABP.

On july 9 2016, Facebook apparently fed up with their loss of ad revenue posted a blog about their new ad blocking policy. After dealing with with users who utilized ad blocking software, Facebook developed many other tools to help customers tailor which ads would be shown to them. to be able to their research, consumers were fine with ads, But did dislike obtrusive ads, Or ads that did not really interest them. dilemma here is that Facebook was finding a way to circumvent ad blocking tools for forcing ads on users. It is great they were allowing customers to customize the types of ads they would receive further, But the move was most definitely user hostile.

what happened next shows what a strong community ABP has. tom Williams, communications and Operations Manager for Adblock Plus parent company Eyeo, Responded with a blog post of his own working to rally the open source troops. Just two days right after, The ABP town wrote a filter to disable Facebook's "n't blocker" safely. Facebook responded by altering the ad code to break the free community's "take action to correct,

Over the tuesday, The ABP free community and Facebook raced to outsmart each other. Besides the well-known annoyance of Facebook ads, Why are people so captivated with removing ads from Facebook?

The downside to Ads

Many people realize that ads are essential for an open and free internet. Content costs money to make and ads can support or supplement making that content. The main issue ABP has is the way ads are listed on the Facebook slavic ladies site. Many ads display in the "supply" Section intermixed with friend features. while there is a small bit of text stating that the ad is a "urged Post, Because of the size of the ad and the way it is designed to become a normal feed post, It may confuse users. Good ads can serve a purpose to users for example, Ads promoting a favorite store or a great sale going on are a good idea. Random ads may well be intermixed in with normal content? Not so efficient. It becomes more unethical when the ads are made to look like news.

It will be informative to see how the ABP and Facebook situation works out. Will the ABP community be able to keep up with one of the largest tech companies in the world.
