I live in KY and recently just got all my internet payday loans closed and marked paid in full. I contacted the KY Office of Financial Institutions and they informed me that internet payday loans are illegally in KY and that you are not obligated to pay them (although I did pay what was left of the prinicpal on one of my loans because I did take the loan out so it was the right thing to do). They would have to be licensed in KY and to be licensed you have to have a storefront so, KY doesn't license internet payday lenders, so that's why they are illegal in KY. I had already the principal off on the other two loans through all the fees they had taken from my account. I am thankful I found this site or I would still be paying on these loans. Check to see how much in fees you have already paid, it may be over the amount of the inital loan. Send them the letter for payday loans stating that they are illegal in this state and you are only willing to pay what you have left on the prinicpal (if your fees haven't covered it already). Then I filed reports with the BBB and the KY AG office and the FTC. Hope this helps. Oh the the KY laws are at (it should be KRS 289.9-100)

thank you for the link...I am at work right now but plan on logging in tonight and reading through all of this. I also read in a different posting on this forum where a guy was talking about entering all of his info into this site so he could try to get some help. Am I supposed to be entering information somewhere to become a member of this forum or something?
thanks for all of your help!!

You can become a member but you don't have to but it does make it easier to keep up with your posts. We recommend you create a new thread.

What we usually ask is...
The names of the PDLs?
The state you live in?
Are they internet or store front loans?
How much have you borrowed?
How much have you paid back including any fees?

That way we can help you more.

Hey sleepless. I basically followed the advice of the posters in this forum by sending all my IPDLs the letter I found on this forum. I actually paid what was left of the prinicpal on one ($30), one they actually refunded some of the fees back to me and the onther one was just marked paid ing full. With the letters I also sent correspondance from the KY Department of Financial Institutions that furhter emphasizes the fact they IPDLs are illegal in the state. Hope this helps. Good Luck

I have a $500 payday loan out in KY. I cannot pay this until August 25th and they will not hold it until then. I don't have any money in my checking. They are going to run it through tomorrow and it will bounce. What can I do? I don't want to go to jail
