wow thank you for the responses. i dont have any family or friends who can help me. This happened because I had the professional courtesy to give my current employer my two weeks notice so gave the future employer a start date that couldnt be changed. then my current employer decided they didnt want my notice and asked me to leave the next day. Thats why there is the lapse. I took a promotion with a competitor company so I assume thats why they were childish and screwed me a little.

 

Loan Mart It is not an indian reservation. Theyre a registered business and licensed in California. legal, SOMEHOW!

 

There are no prepayment penalties, but like i previously said, your first payments are almost ALL INTEREST so when you can pay it off, youre basically at the beginning Principle again.

 

I also didnt mention, I have about 10% credit used v avail. 1000 debt to 10000 cl.

make about 40k per year.

I would use this CC  and pay the  Min.  untill i got out of this jam

These places are for people in a jam, but avoid it as much as possible... I am sick of seeing WesternSky.com on television too.  Outrageous rates.

A title loan with a credit union might be a good option.

Re: 800 LOAN MART and personal loan experience :(

Can you get a CLI on your credit card and make minimum or a little above it for a few months?
