This site is great and very information, but I didn't seem to find that much info on Title loans, so I hope someone can help me. I have a title loan. The interest payments were supposed to be monthly (i assumed), but actually are every 2 weeks. I live in IL and have filed a complaint with the IL AG Office, and am waiting to hear back. My main concern is not losing my car as it seems these people are snakes. Heres the story I had some payday loans which I paid off. After paying them off, I closed my bank account and opened new one to avoid any unwanted deposits or debits. After I closed it, I informed this company that I had via email and voicemail (I don't have an address for them) and never heard anything back. I sent the email for 3 days (until payday). The email stated that my payment was returned. I again forwarded my original email letting them know that I had to close my account and wanted an address to send a money order while I opened a new account. I received 2 emails back, 1 saying to call to discuss (and when you call, no one picks up and you get disconnected) and the 2nd one stating that I owed $916 and a payment needed to be made Western Union. I have continued to try to contact these people with no luck. I have not sent the payment because I think they have messed up. I am nervous and I don't want to lose my car. Do title loans fall under the same laws as payday loans? Does the lender have to have a liscense in IL to loan in IL? Should I get an attorney? Any help is appreciated!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
