Thank you so much for the information. It seems funny to me that all these payday loan places are so adamant about the fact that they aren't doing anything wrong, yet it is nearly impossible to find accurate contact information on them. They hide behind so many different names, it is hard to know who is who.

Very true, most of the lenders have so many DBA names that it becomes to identify the parent company. Besides, having multiple names makes them easier to scam people. If one of their companies comes under legal troubles, they can carry out with other names. Very few out there publish the name of the parent company and others don't complete the licensing formalities. That's just so annoying!!

Were you able to get in touch with the person at Credit Protection Depot? Is this the address and phone number you were searching for?

I found that Credit Protection Depot has a cease and desist order from State of Nevada from 6/11/2009. They were not licensed. I wonder if anyone knows if they have since gotten a license? They were also found to be taking money out of accounts without authorization, and taking more than was owed. They are threatening me, telling me that though I revoked authorization for them to debit my account through the bank, they can contact my bank and with the original loan agreement have it reversed. Waiting on my lawyer's reply to find out if this is an empty threat -- but of course I'll worry anyhow. That interest rate cannot even be legal. I paid the loan 3 times just in interest by now--they made it impossible to get off the merry go round. Live and learn. I'm truly an idiot for ever borrowing from them but when you are alone and no where to turn.... it seemed a smarter thing to do at the time until they ate so much of my pay up check to check I couldn't pay it off without turning around and taking out another loan in a week to pay the bills! '

I hope no one ever is forced to go to these people--we need to eliminate the business.
