a couple of questions.

1)were you a NC resident when you took out the loans.
2)how much paid back to each loan,please list these.

you see pdl's are totally illegal in NC so what you owe depends on those two questions.please answer those and we can help you here.

Can I assume that these are online lenders? Payday lending is illegal in the state of North Carolina.

Contact your AG immediately.

Under the new law, lenders will not be allowed to lend money to military members or their families using a check, or any other means of access to a financial account, as security for the loan.


Payday loans to military members or their immediate family are illegal, regardless of the state. It's a new federal law they passed a year or so ago.
