Hello All:
This is the first time writing online. I have shamed and disappointed myself and am drowning in Payday Loan debt. I have 4 loans at the moment. I have been taking out loans, paying them off, refinancing, etc. for over a year. All started when my mortgage more than doubled from $612 to $1475/mth. The mortgage company drafted said $1475 in December of 2010. From that point on, I've been using payday loans to live off of - but only just barely. I now understand that terminology - Robbing Peter to pay Paul and Mary will get hers eventually. Almost all of my monthly check (I only get paid once a month) goes to paying off and refinancing these loans. I'm so sick of it. I am now behind on my car and mortgage payment, plus I'm having to ask for extensions to pay the utilities, etc. I hardly have enough money for groceries or gas. I've been taking off work so I don't have to drive and save gas until I can find extra cash. I can't sleep at night, i'm super stressed out and I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack.
So, I decided to contact a payday loan debt consolidation company in Florida - paydayloandebtassistance.com (I live in Dallas, TX) and they were happy to help me. They offered me 15 months to pay all settled accounts - but they couldn't guarantee the PDL companies would accept their offers. Payments would have been $337 (their fees included). I would have been paying them $1700 in fees. This was for only 3 of the companies. They did not work with The Cash Store. After reading through the agreement, more questions came to mind. I dug around on the internet and found lots of negative information on them about taking money but not paying off the loan companies so I panicked. My gut was telling me not do it and I didn't.
As I was preparing, at the debt consolidation company's advice, I opened a new bank account and am about to close my current bank account - which all loans are tied to... I am now trying to figure out what to do next. Any advice on what I should do?
Here is a list of loans I have open with 4 companies - all of which I am in good standing:
* Cashnetusa.com (online)
$1500 borrowed + $353.11 fees & interest - $1853.11; current on loan
Due 6/1/12
*Discountadvances.com (online)
$770 borrowed + $288.75 fees & interest - $1058.75; current on loan
Due 6/1/12
*ACE Cash Express (online)
$1100 borrowed + $283.39 fees & interest - $1383.39 current on loan
Due 6/4/12
*The Cash Store (store front)
$800 originally borrowed - been paying biweekly since August 2011 - balance currently owed is $475.95; I am current on this and next payment is on 5/21/12 and I usually refinance at that point because I don't usually have the money to make another full payment.
I'm scared and need help. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful!




From reading TX laws, rollovers are not permitted plus you have one illegal loan...you owe only the principal balance on that one.

Look up your state licencing agency and call and find out if your other lenders are legal. Follow the info in my signature line.
