Can you extend your payday loan?

Yes, depending on which state you live in.

For most states, payday lenders have put into place mechanisms to extend loans up to the maximum number of times the state allows.

When extending a payday loan, keep in mind that you will pay an extension fee (which will be the same as the origination/application fee) that you paid when getting the payday loan in the first place.

What is personal finance?

Personal finance is 2 things...finance and personal.

The finance thing is money. Money is logical and financial success requires that you pursue specific behaviors to properly manage your money to that end. One of those specific behaviors is using the dynamics of compound interest and compounding financial gains. There are 3 finance tools...the personal budget, the personal balance sheet and the personal life plan. For success you need to spend less than you make (budget), own more than you owe (balance sheet) and know where you are going or you might not get there (life plan).

The personal thing is your human psychology and how it affects your capacity to manage money and engage in the specific behaviors that result in financial success. The psychological is affected by IQ, age, addictions, mental illness and a built in capacity to make excuses for financial shortcomings.

Put this together and you have personal finance.

Personal Finance are those loan/finance that you need for some business or personal use. There are many types of loans available in the financial market. You may use personal loans for getting home, starting a business and buying a car.

What happens if you stop payment on payday loan?

Stop payments on payday loans will rarely work. They do ACH withdrawals from your bank account. All they have to do is enter a slightly different amount than what you stated on your stop payment order. It would still get sent through because the amount will be different. They're used to this. If you don't have the funds to pay your loan and they will not work with you, you may have to close your bank account. You can open a new one that they won't have access to. Let the bank know what's going on. They've seen it before most likely. Check your state laws. Some states have made payday lending illegal due to the excessive interest rates they charge. This means that they are not enforceable, and you may be able to get out of it. If your state allows payday lending, then you could always be sued for default, but that's about it. It's no different than not paying on a credit card.

Should you get a cash advance payday loan?

"I just need enough cash to tide me over until payday.""GET CASH UNTIL PAYDAY! . . . $100 OR MORE . . . FAST." The ads are on the radio, television, the Internet, even in the mail. They refer to payday loans, cash advance loans, check advance loans, post-dated check loans, or deferred deposit loans. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, says that regardless of their name, these small, short-term, high-rate loans by check cashers, finance companies and others all come at a very high price. Here's how they work: A borrower writes a personal check payable to the lender for the amount the person wants to borrow, plus the fee they must pay for borrowing. The company gives the borrower the amount of the check less the fee, and agrees to hold the check until the loan is due, usually the borrower's next payday. Or, with the borrower's permission, the company deposits the amount borrowed - less the fee - into the borrower's checking account electronically. The loan amount is due to be debited the next payday. The fees on these loans can be a percentage of the face value of the check - or they can be based on increments of money borrowed: say, a fee for every $50 or $100 borrowed. The borrower is charged new fees each time the same loan is extended or "rolled over." The federal Truth in Lending Act treats payday loans like other types of credit: the lenders must disclose the cost of the loan. Payday lenders must give you the finance charge (a dollar amount) and the annual percentage rate (APR - the cost of credit on a yearly basis) in writing before you sign for the loan. The APR is based on several things, including the amount you borrow, the interest rate and credit costs you're being charged, and the length of your loan. A payday loan - that is, a cash advance secured by a personal check or paid by electronic transfer is very expensive credit. How expensive? Say you need to borrow $100 for two weeks. You write a personal check for $115, with $15 the fee to borrow the money. The check casher or payday lender agrees to hold your check until your next payday. When that day comes around, either the lender deposits the check and you redeem it by paying the $115 in cash, or you roll-over the loan and are charged $15 more to extend the financing for 14 more days. If you agree to electronic payments instead of a check, here's what would happen on your next payday: the company would debit the full amount of the loan from your checking account electronically, or extend the loan for an additional $15. The cost of the initial $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100. Before you decide to take out a payday loan, consider some alternatives. # Consider a small loan from your credit union or a small loan company. Some banks may offer short-term loans for small amounts at competitive rates. A local community-based organization may make small business loans to people. A cash advance on a credit card also may be possible, but it may have a higher interest rate than other sources of funds: find out the terms before you decide. In any case, shop first and compare all available offers. # Shop for the credit offer with the lowest cost. Compare the APR and the finance charge, which includes loan fees, interest and other credit costs. You are looking for the lowest APR. Military personnel have special protections against super-high fees or rates, and all consumers in some states and the District of Columbia have some protections dealing with limits on rates. Even with these protections, payday loans can be expensive, particularly if you roll-over the loan and are responsible for paying additional fees. Other credit offers may come with lower rates and costs. # Contact your creditors or loan servicer as quickly as possible if you are having trouble with your payments, and ask for more time. Many may be willing to work with consumers who they believe are acting in good faith. They may offer an extension on your bills; make sure to find out what the charges would be for that service - a late charge, an additional finance charge, or a higher interest rate. # Contact your local consumer credit counseling service if you need help working out a debt repayment plan with creditors or developing a budget. Non-profit groups in every state offer credit guidance to consumers for no or low cost. You may want to check with your employer, credit union, or housing authority for no- or low-cost credit counseling programs, too. # Make a realistic budget, including your monthly and daily expenditures, and plan, plan, plan. Try to avoid unnecessary purchases: the costs of small, every-day items like a cup of coffee add up. At the same time, try to build some savings: small deposits do help. A savings plan - however modest - can help you avoid borrowing for emergencies. Saving the fee on a $300 payday loan for six months, for example, can help you create a buffer against financial emergencies. # Find out if you have - or if your bank will offer you - overdraft protection on your checking account. If you are using most or all the funds in your account regularly and you make a mistake in your account records, overdraft protection can help protect you from further credit problems. Find out the terms of the overdraft protection available to you - both what it costs and what it covers. Some banks offer "bounce protection," which may cover individual overdrafts from checks or electronic withdrawals, generally for a fee. It can be costly, and may not guarantee that the bank automatically will pay the overdraft. The bottom line on payday loans: Try to find an alternative. If you must use one, try to limit the amount. Borrow only as much as you can afford to pay with your next paycheck - and still have enough to make it to next payday. (Source - FTC http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt060.shtm)

From other contributors:

* A payday loan is an expensive way to borrow money. Paying $50 to borrow $200 for two weeks is something like a 600% APR. Even a credit card with a 20% interest rate (which is very high right now, given today's low rates), would be much better for you. During an emergency we borrowed a payday loan and the experience was worth mentioning. == == * Cash advance payday loans are designed for people who do not have any other resources to solve their cash crisis. Therefore, the fact that a credit card cash advance has lower rates is not applicable to someone who is either maxed out or does not have a credit card. The cash advance industry came about due to strict small loan policies put into lace by traditional banks. If they refuse to service these consumers without perfect credit and collateral, than who will? And when the lights go out because the electric bill isn't paid or the rent overdue, than what is a person to do? Paying a bill late or bouncing a check can end up being much more costly than the fees associated with a cash advance payday loan. LATE charges on most bills are MUCH less than payday loan rates.Most banks now offer the "overdraft" protection at slightly less than payday rates . LOL * Absolutely not... this is a quick way to take yourself further into debt. You must understand that in order to get the cash advance, you have written that agency a check for the amount "advanced" plus a fee, usually $50. That check you wrote will be submitted to YOUR bank for payment after about 2 weeks. If the funds are not there, then YOUR debt multiplies by leaps and bounds, furthering your need to "borrow" even more money to pay off a prior advance "loan". That simple $200 cash advance has then quickly turned into Thousands of dollars being owed. * Bottom line: If you don't have the funds in the bank in the first place, you really have no business borrowing against what you haven't yet earned.

What is a payday loan?

Many check cashing businesses offer small sum, short-term, high-rate, unsecured personal loans. These go by many names, including: payday loan cash advance loan post-dated check loans deferred deposit In a payday loan transaction, the borrower will provide to the lender items such as a paycheck stub, photo identification and a recent bank statement. The borrower writes a check to the lender for the amount and the lender's fee. Under law in some states, the lender's fee is limited. The lender agrees to hold the check until the customer's next payday, up to 30 days. At that time, the borrower may redeem the check with cash, allow the lender to deposit the check or roll over the loan by paying another fee. Payday lenders advertise their services as a way to cover unexpected expenses like car repairs and avoid bounced check fees and late payment penalties. Potential payday loan customers should be aware of the risks and responsibilities involved with this sort of lending. Let's say you want to borrow $200 until you get your next paycheck in two weeks. You write a postdated check to a payday lender for $230 (15% of $200 = $30 lender's fee + $200 loan amount = $230) and get $200 cash in return. The $30 interest you pay on the loan calculates to an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 391%. The payday lender may also charge you a one-time fee of $10 to set up an account. If you are unable to repay the loan after the agreed-upon 14 days have elapsed, you may elect to extend the loan for another two weeks by paying an additional $30. If you choose to roll over the loan, you will have paid $60 in lender's fees for a one-month loan of $200. It's easy to see how these fees can quickly add up

Advance-Fee Loan Scams: 'Easy' Cash Offers Teach Hard LessonsLooking for a loan or credit card but don't think you'll qualify? Turned down by a bank because of your poor credit history?

You may be tempted by ads and websites that guarantee loans or credit cards, regardless of your credit history. The catch comes when you apply for the loan or credit card and find out you have to pay a fee in advance. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, that could be a tip-off to a rip-off. If you're asked to pay a fee for the promise of a loan or credit card, you can count on the fact that you're dealing with a scam artist. More than likely, you'll get an application, or a stored value or debit card, instead of the loan or credit card.

The Signs of an Advance-Fee Loan ScamThe FTC says some red flags can tip you off to scam artists' tricks. For example:
  • A lender who isn't interested in your credit history. A lender may offer loans or credit cards for many purposes - for example, so a borrower can start a business or consolidate bill payments. But one who doesn't care about your credit record should give you cause for concern. Ads that say "Bad credit? No problem" or "We don't care about your past. You deserve a loan" or "Get money fast" or even "No hassle - guaranteed" often indicate a scam.
  • Banks and other legitimate lenders generally evaluate creditworthiness and confirm the information in an application before they guarantee firm offers of credit - even to creditworthy consumers.
  • Fees that are not disclosed clearly or prominently. Scam lenders may say you've been approved for a loan, then call or email demanding a fee before you can get the money. Any up-front fee that the lender wants to collect before granting the loan is a cue to walk away, especially if you're told it's for "insurance," "processing," or just "paperwork."

    Legitimate lenders often charge application, appraisal, or credit report fees. The differences? They disclose their fees clearly and prominently; they take their fees from the amount you borrow; and the fees usually are paid to the lender or broker after the loan is approved.

    It's also a warning sign if a lender says they won't check your credit history, yet asks for your personal information, such as your Social Security number or bank account number. They may use your information to debit your bank account to pay a fee they're hiding.

  • A loan that is offered by phone. It is illegal for companies doing business in the U.S. by phone to promise you a loan and ask you to pay for it before they deliver.
  • A lender who uses a copy-cat or wanna-be name. Crooks give their companies names that sound like well-known or respected organizations and create websites that look slick. Some scam artists have pretended to be the Better Business Bureau or another reputable organization, and some even produce forged paperwork or pay people to pretend to be references. Always get a company's phone number from the phone book or directory assistance, and call to check they are who they say they are. Get a physical address, too: a company that advertises a PO Box as its address is one to check out with the appropriate authorities.
  • A lender who is not registered in your state. Lenders and loan brokers are required to register in the states where they do business. To check registration, call your state Attorney General's office or your state's Department of Banking or Financial Regulation. Checking registration does not guarantee that you will be happy with a lender, but it helps weed out the crooks.

    A lender who asks you to wire money or pay an individual. Don't make a payment for a loan or credit card directly to an individual; legitimate lenders don't ask anyone to do that. In addition, don't use a wire transfer service or send money orders for a loan. You have little recourse if there's a problem with a wire transaction, and legitimate lenders don't pressure their customers to wire funds.

    Finally, just because you've received a slick promotion, seen an ad for a loan in a prominent place in your neighborhood or in your newspaper, on television or on the Internet, or heard one on the radio, don't assume it's a good deal - or even legitimate. Scam artists like to operate on the premise of legitimacy by association, so it's really important to do your homework.

Finding Low-Cost Help for Credit ProblemsIf you have debt problems, try to solve them with your creditors as soon as you realize you won't be able to make your payments. If you can't resolve the problems yourself or need help to do it, you may want to contact a credit counseling service. Nonprofit organizations in every state counsel and educate people and families on debt problems, budgeting, and using credit wisely. Often, these services are low- or no-cost. Universities, military bases, credit unions, and housing authorities also may offer low- or no-cost credit counseling programs. To learn more about dealing with debt, including how to select a credit counseling service, visit ftc.gov/credit. Where to ComplainIf you think you've had an experience with an advance-fee loan scam, report it to the FTC.

The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint or to get free information on consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261.

What does insufficient credit file mean?

There is not enough credit history for the lender to make a decision. The credit file is a history and if it doesn't go back far enough, or have enough accounts on it, they can't make an informed decision. To solve try to get small things that will appear on your credit, possibly a card with a 500 dollar limit, etc.

What happens if you leave Australia for good without paying your credit cards and personal loans?

Well, this is a good question! Now, if you go to Australia, you are definitely going to have bills and loans to pay off because you want to spend your money on everything you see. It's amazing what they have in the shops over there. If you have already left Australia, you should consider phoning up your credit card company. If you don't want to go into detail or get them involved, then they will phone you! So make up your mind very soon or you will be getting a VERY serious phone call from a VERY serious person!

AnswerProbably nothing, unless you decided to take up residence again in the US. And if you did, and the SOL was applicable, still nothing.I can't imagine any company/bank would pursue the complicated legalities of your situation. Unless you deliberately committed fraud by never having any intention of paying the debt(s). If you own property here, it would be considered an asset and probably be seized and sold. Or if there were cosigners or collateral involved. Legal action could be taken to force payment and/or sale. Answeri believe that in this situation a grey area is created due to the fact that Australia may have treatys or agreements in law with some countrys and not others.Of course while away u would be listed as a bad debitor and may even have warrents of some sort issued to be served upon u if ever u did return.of course it depends on the amounts involved and the willingness of authorities to follow up on the matter.I think the one big risk taken by anyone who does this would be that as the world grows smaller the legal nets get bigger.

Can you use your ESOP account as collateral on a personal loan?

Yes, the vested portion of an employee stock ownership plan owned directly by an individual may be used for collateral. Some definitions:

* "Owned directly by the individual" indicates that there is a clear trail of ownership that is held by a sole party (e.g., one has X shares of stock in the company or Y% of the company)

* "Vested portion" indicates the portion of assets owned by an individual that no longer have any contingency attached (e.g., one may be vested in 50 shares of stock if I stay with the company 3 years after receiving those shares; for the first 3 years, that stock may not be used in full by the individual)

Where can you get a personal loan with bad credit?

Actually, personal loans for people with bad credit can be taken through the online lending companies providing short term loans with no credit check. The amount available for borrowing is not very large (usually up to $1500), but basically it can be enough to cover some expenses or pay off the bills. The major thing is to repay such loans on time, because the fees for delayed payments are rather high.

Can you be arrested after being fired by a company for theft?

AnswerYes you can. It was done at the Mc Donald's I worked at in Florida. Usually you sign a statement when hired in stating you will not steal and such. Stealing is a crime....being at a job does not forfeit the law.

In South African context that is the sole decision of the Employer, in practice after or before you are found guilty of theft (gross misconduct) at the disciplinary hearing the employer may open a case of theft with the police against you.

And having opened the case against you that does not preclude the employer to proceed with a disciplinary hearing against and the outcome of the court does not render the company's decision null and void.

Two seperate issues, if they file a police report about ther theft its up to the prosecutor to decied to proceed with a court action. The employer can take whatever action they wish, within any union contract ageements or processes.
