Re: PAYDAY LOANS I need money urgently.

Payday loans are for at most, 2 weeks.  For $800 you will need to pay back about $920 in 14 days.  If they let you extend that, you will likely have to pay the interest at that time.

 

They are so bad for you that in some states you cant take them out.  Check you area and be really, really sure you cant find money anywhere else.

Re: PAYDAY LOANS I need money urgently.

I have decided upon this. The rate will be more than I expected 287% I hope it will not increase.

Re: PAYDAY LOANS I need money urgently.

How's your credit? Time to rebuild? In a little time you can have the scores it takes to grab a quick 5k at 2% or 3% most any time you need it with a decent CC. I would make this moment my decision to build some scores.  GL   :]

Re: PAYDAY LOANS I need money urgently.

Why would someone join this forum to ask advice and then ignore the advice we all gave him?

Re: PAYDAY LOANS I need money urgently.

I don't get it either SouthJamaica makes no sense to come looking for advice and then totally ignore all advice given. But who knows what situation they may be in , if it were me this would be my moment of realization that I need to start building or rebuilding my credit . Almost 300% interest is insane , that's how them Payday loans suck you in though , you will pay it back and just have to borrow another one next payday

It seriously took me almost two years to get out of this trap when payday loans first hit the scene in the early 2000s. I was in a cycle of paying off a loan and taking out a new one the very same day and was so strapped I could only reduce the amount of the new loan by $20 each time.
