I live in Montana.I currently have 10 internet PDL's and 4 storefront PDL's in my town. I am just tackling this problem and need some help. I want to pay these but on my own terms and ONLY what I owe. I know most, if not all of the internet loans are illegal and need advice. My first and foremost question is -the only loans are scheduled to be paid by ACH on friday, september 25th and I do not have the money to cover these. It is over $500 in fees. Do I: A. Close my checking account? or B. Bring in the revocation of ACH letters I am emailing tomorrow to my bank to try and block the payments? I only have a few days to figure this one out. I have a call into our State regulatory department to find out more on consumer rights but, in the meantime need some solid advice. Here is what I have so far:

Internet loans:

Best Cash Advance - owe $300.00 - pd $90 rollover fees twice
Green Light Funding - Owe $250.00 - pd $74 rollover fees - Owe $300.00 - pdi rollover fee of $90.00
Advance America - borrowed $300.00 - owe $250.00
Star Cash Processing - borrowed $250.00 - pd rollover fee of $75.00 once
pack Management - owe $250.00 pd $75.00 fee once
Loan Shop - owe $400.00 borrowed same amt. pd rollover fee of $120.00 twice
CMG Payday loan - borrowed $250 owe same. pd rollover fees twice. - borrowed $200 - owe same. pd rollover fees once.
National Money Store - borrowed $250.0
Magnum Cash ADvance - Just entered into a payment arrangement with them but do PDL laws also cover installment loans online?
Little loan shoppe - they totally suck and have sucked me dry with fees. I still owe more than what I borrowed and have paid them over $400 on a $400 loan. Not sure how to tackle them as they are not a "payday" loan but state installment loan.

I will need address to all of these places if you have them but I don't think I have enough time to revoke ACH Authorizations by Friday with these companies. Should I go to the bank and what other advice do you have? MANNN.....I will NEVER do this again. These things are awful.

Thank goodness your account is closed! phewwwwwwwww! lol
Go to your bank and speak directly with the branch manager, explain that you are dealing with some illegal lenders who have been charging you unlawful interest on your loans, tell the bank manager that you are making arrangements to pay them off according to your state laws via the mail. Give them a hard luck story if you must! Ask them to PLEASE place a hard debit block on your account asap! Stress the importance of this and how these lenders are stealing from you and you NEED their help. Also inform them that you are filing complaints with the Federal Trade Commission (link in my signature) and your Attorney General's office, I'm pretty sure if they know the circumstances they will freeze your account but it's important that you go into the bank and only speak to the branch manager because they are the only ones authorized to freeze accounts. That is what I did when I was in your situation and it worked out fine. Also, you have the right per the EFTA law to revoke ANY and ALL ACH rights so they can't debit your account, all you need to do is send off emails to these lenders stating you are revoking any and all rights for them to debit your account under any circumstances per the EFTA (regulation E) law. (Electronic FundsTransfer Act).

Oh and once you send those emails out print them out and take them into your bank to prove to the branch manager that you have already revoked their rights to debit your account but now you need the bank to follow through per regulation E.

I just got home from the bank and they have frozen my checking acct for now. All taken care of for now. Thank you so much for your help. Now on to contacting these companies. Do you have any advice on how to get an ACH revocation to a company that will not give you their address or have an email address?

Your State Authorities and AG are irrelevant in this matter. We are only able to accept payments via ACH payment and for that a checking account is required. You must provide details to a new or alternative checking account to allow us to receive payments on this loan. There are no other payment methods available. We do not accept any credit cards, pre-paid debit cards, money orders, personal checks or savings accounts. Thank you, Customer Service
