I have a PDL loan with Astro Lending. It was for $300 and I have paid almost $1000 in fees to them and they're still debiting it from my account every payday. I don't know what the laws are in TN but it seems like this is a little out of control. Can someone tell me if there is any law that would prevent them from being able to do this. I would like to take care of this without having to close my checking account. Thanks!

I'll post your laws for you but I am afraid you are either going to need to close out that account or place a hard block on it, if they've taken that much already just for a $300.00 loan then that makes a bold statement about their illegal practices, unless you have re-loaned on this several times?
