The Cautions Of Payday Loans

Aug 17, 2007
Payday loans can be a very good thing, but they can also be a very bad thing. A payday loan, just like any other loan is borrowing money that you have to pay back. Payday loans, however, differ from a typical loan in many ways.

Lenders are usually not going to loan you a small amount of money, like under 500. This is because the interest on this type of loan, no matter how high, would not be a lot to them and therefore they would not make money off these loans. Payday loans are usually made for under 500.

Payday loans are also short term loans. They must be paid back within two week to a month, according to the terms of the loan. These loans also charge very high interest rates.

To get a payday loan all a person usually needs is proof of income and a checking account. Most places prefer that your paycheck is direct deposited into the account. In some instances the payday advance center will make you fill out forms, including a reference sheet. These references are used, should you not pay your debt. The center will then call your references to try to find you.

After filling out the necessary forms and providing the necessary documentation, you will arrange your loan. This involves the center figuring out, according to your income, how much they are willing to loan you.

Once you get the amount of the loan figured out they will have you write a check for the loan amount plus the interest. They will then hold the check until the end of your loan. At that time you can either have them cash the check or come in and pay off the loan and get your check back. If you do not show up on the date the loan is due then they will simply cash the check.

The main problem with payday loans is people misuse them. A payday loan is meant to be used in emergencies, and when a person knows they will be able to pay back the loan.

Many times, though, people fall into a trap where they borrow money they can not pay back. In these cases people either end up with bounced checks or they go to a different payday advance center and get a new loan to cover the old loan. In any case, the outcome is not good.

When using payday loans a person should make sure that they have no alternative. They should also be aware of the fees associated with the loan. It is extremely important for a person to make sure they know they will be able to pay the loan back. This way they can avoid the trap of payday loans.
