My tribal online installment loan lenders are not licensed in my state.

Last month and the month before I needed cash quickly to cover some emergency medical expenses and rent, so I foolishly went online and borrowed from four different companies. I did not read the loan agreements carefully enough and my monthly payments would come to a total of around $2,000, or around $1,000 every two weeks. I just do not make enough money to handle these interest rates.

Fast forward to today and I have not made a single payment yet, revoked ACH authorization with my bank, and am trying to figure out the best course of action. I did some digging and found that the four lenders are not licensed in WA state and are in violation of usury laws.
The lenders are:
Blue River Lending (borrowed $525)
Lendgreen (borrowed $900)
Mountain Summit Financial (borrowed $700)
Inbox Loan (borrowed $900)

I’ve found a ton of information on the internet about payday loans, but since these are installment loans I’m not sure what to do. Do I just owe them the principle balance? Are the loans collectible or enforceable at all? I am thinking of contacting them and offering to pay the principle on my terms and my time and file a complain with the DFI.




Yes, you owe them only the principal balance since they are not licensed in the WA state. A lot of illegal lenders give payday loans in the name of installment loans. This is nothing but a strategy to fool borrowers and manipulate state laws. Okay. They will claim that the loan agreement is valid. But it isn't. So chill.

Inform them that you'll pay only the principal amount and file a complaint with the DFI.

They all are illegal lenders. Pay only the principal amount. Also don't forget to revoke the ACH authorisation once you repaid the principal amount.

Illegal lenders can't even take any legal actions against you. So, you don't have to worry at all.

I was contacted by Crestwood Capital on 8/9/2019 by a unknown number and the guy said it Hey were taken legal action for what? I was victim of fraud awhile back.I did my research called the Federal Trade Commission they searched for Crestwood and Rushmore THEY are not license in FL... the representative told me to call the FL Department of Financial. They search for both names Crestwood and Rushmore nothing legal in the state of Florida they are a tribal loan company out of South Dakota and they cannot take you to court what you can do is get a stop and cease letter certified to them they are stationed out of Buffalo New York and they will only give you the post office box not the physical address.
So start with the Federal Trade Commission and then call your state of Department of Finance regulations and give them their name and see if they're legal to do any payday loan transactions in your state

Can't agree with you more. That's what we tell time and again. If someone is a victim of fraud, then he should report it to the FTC. They do take steps against the illegal companies.

What happens if I cannot pay back the principal as I currently have no income? Can they take legal action against me?

Even if you don't pay back the principal amount, they can do nothing. The reason is, the loan is illegal. They can't file a lawsuit against you. However, on moral grounds, you should pay back the principal amount.

Try to repay the principal amount to stay in peace. However, they can't file lawsuit against you.

I got a loan through a tribal lender and all the paperwork is for the wrong amount. It says one amount and I actually got a differet amount? Does that make the paperwork no good since its inaccurate ?
