I have about 7 payday loans, 3 of them are just fine, but 4 of them are horrible. I have been paying the fees on them over and over, which Arizona law says that legally they are only allowed to roll over the loan a total of 3 times. I have paid these loans back. I closed my account, but I am worried about the phone calls and legal actions. I want to pay them back but I feel I already have with all the fees I have paid.
Here are the loans
Big--loan amount $200. I have paid fees since March 2008, started at $80 ever pay check but lowered every month until it was $40. So I have more then paid it back
LoanShop--loan amount $300--i have been paying a $90 fee every payday since March 7th 2008
FTR--Loan was $200, I have been paying a $60 fee every payday since Dec 2007. no pay down option
247advances.com--loan amount $200-- i have been paying $74 every payday since March 2008--doesnt offer pay down
I know these companies are not following AZ laws, but I dont know what to do to get them taken care of. Do I sit back and wait for the calls to start since I already have closed my account and spoke to my bank. Who do I file complaints with my state or the state the loan company is in? There are a few that I dont even know where they are located. Can someone please give me any information they have on any of these companies.

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.
