I wanted to share with everyone the email I just received from a gentleman in the Iowa Dept. of Banking regarding Payday Loan Yes and Fast Cash.
Payday Loan Yes does not list an address on their website, but Fast Cash does. They are part of the same company and sister companies. If you check their fax numbers, they are very much the same.
Anyway, here's the info I received from the state of Iowa which is the state they are allegedly located in according to the address listed on the Fast Cash website.
Thank you for your email regarding an online payday lender.
Fast Cash Advance is not a licensee of the Iowa Division of Banking. I do not believe the address is legitimate. I could not find the address using search tools and I have not heard of such a street in the 26 years I have lived in Des Moines . The ZIP is for Des Moines ; however, I do not think it is one used for street addresses, but for a high volume mail recipient Ã¢â‚¬â€œ something like all the payments for the local power company are directed to 50307.
I called the telephone numbers listed on their webpage, but they were answered by machine as Ã¢â‚¬Å“Payday Loan Yes.Ã¢â‚¬Â I waited on hold, but never got anyone to pick up the call.
For these reasons, I am very concerned that this company is not a lender of any sort and they are probably not located in Des Moines . They may just be a shell for bad actors to collect your personal information.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
