That's correct. No one can be put to jail for defaulting on a loan. Writing bad checks could be an offense, but post dated checks are not counted as bad check. Relax and think some way to get out of the loan.

CATHERINE205,

In which state are you living? Check the laws in your state and see if you can record the phone calls without informing the other party. If it's permissible to do the recording secretly, call the company and ask them to send you the details of the account in writing. It is your legal right to know the details of the debt and you must review it before making the payments. Once you have said, their illegal tactics will get recorded in the phone conversation and you can present it to your lawyer for pressing charges against them.

Maybe you should pay back loans and then you won't get phone calls. This is too funny. I would think if you gave someone a check for a loan and it was a bad check then it could be fraud. So, seriously can people run around to those places and give them all bad checks and the business gives them money for them?

Interesting but related in what way? We aren't taking about poor people in debt. We are talking about people exchanging a check for cold hard cash and the check is worthless. Do the laws apply to only the payday loans or can people go to the electric company, grocery and buy cars with bad checks and then they are free and wealthier? Just curious about this new check scam for cash? How do the payday places stay in business when they take checks?

Validation letter or legally known as debt validation is the method of identifying a collection agency making legitimate collections. Many CA's often contact people without having any accurate account details of the consumers. In most cases, they try to make money in an illegal way.

At this point, debt validation is the best legal way by which you can get the accurate details of the debt from the third party collector. They must give you the details about the original creditor for which they are collecting. Besides, the collection agency has to be licensed in the state and it should also be put in writing. The federal government has forced this law in order to protect people from sending money to wrong business practitioners.
