Can a payday loan company issue a warrant for your arrest for defaulting on a loan?

No. Only the court (Judges) may issue a warrant for someone's arrest. No lender may have you arrested for not paying a loan, however, if you don't show up to court (or have legal representation at court), the judge may issue a bench warrant for your arrest (with the intention of getting you in front of the court, not to put you in jail). If the default, however, is subsequently believed to be a result of fraud, the judge may pass the particulars of the case to a prosecutor who will likely request a warrant for your arrest. In this case, the warrant is meant to hold you for trial in criminal court.
