On 5/26/08 I stumbled across this site, I was totally depressed because I had 6 online PDL's and the payments were taking my entire paycheck. I am a single parent of 3 young children. I posted my situation and within minutes I had 17 people wanting to help me, it was a great feeling, I wasn't alone anymore. With the help and directions they gave me I have managed to get PIF's on 4 of the 6 PDL PLUS I received a money order refund for almost $500 in the mail today.

This hasn't been hard or complicated in any way, all it takes is to own up to our mistakes and start making better decisions where our money is concerned. I fully expect to have the final 2 PDL's eradicated before the end of the month.

I urge anyone who comes to this site to really take the time to read through the posts and the stickeys, there is so much wonderful information from people that were in your position and know how to play the game. I feel so much lighter since I have removed these monkeys off my back. Thank you to everyone and I hope some day that I am able to help someone as well.

Wow, that is so kind of you to say bmblbe69. I too came to this site asking for help and help they did in soo many ways and I decided to stay and it has been over a year now. Thank you for sharing your story with us and I am so glad that you are on the road to a better financial health that in which you came. I love this family here.

bmblebee -

I'm SO happy for you! So the one lender that was insisting that you give them your bank account info caved and agreed to send you a money order for the refund instead??

See...if you play YOUR game instead of THEIRS, you CAN WIN!

Congratulations, bmblbe! You must feel SO good knowing that you are almost at the end of that road!

Yes that's correct. At first they didn't respond so I sent an email with her sentence that she was agreeing to refund my money highlighted and in red and stated they had 48 hours to respond or I was taking this to the next step. The woman I comunicated with was actually very nice and even apologized for not getting right back to me. Like I've said before, I think all of you have paved the way for people like me. THANK YOU!

it's always nice to see people coming up out of debt. the $500 refund was very impressive as well. :)
your story was inspiring, I came here looking for a way to get out of payday loan hell and ended up loving it and staying here, as well.

I am in exactly the same situation as bmblbe! I am single mom of 3 girls - one mentally challenged. She requires so much care - I was buried in medical bills and started taking out PDL's to get by. Before I know it Im so in debt. If I could just get a $3000 loan -I could pay off all PDL's and my credit card and the rest of the doctor bills. My credit is not good, but I am trustworthy and a hard worker. I hope a millionaire reads this and helps?? LOL . The PDL's really are a lot each payday - a loan payment would be simple compared to them. :shock:
Thanks for listening, Wacky
