I took out a Spotloan back in January for $800. I have paid $1638 and some cents already. They want me to settle for $370 which would make it $2008. I have thought about suing them in small claims court for the overage because I don't think this loan is legal in Ohio. I cannot find a license. They claim to be bound by Turtle Creek Tribe law. I asked the person calling me if they were an Indian. She said no. Their mailing address is Palatine, Illinois. I asked if there was an Indian reservation in Illinois. She said no, that the main office was in North Dakota and that was only a mailing address. Where can I find out more info about the legality of these tribal loans? Has anyone successfully sued them? I can find court cases from Colorado, California and Washington, but nothing about Ohio. Thanks.

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.
