Over the limit fees Cash advance fees and rates Increasing the rate based on other accounts Signs of Predatory Lending 1. Triple digit interest rate: Payday loans carry very low risk of loss, but lenders typically charge fees equal to 400% APR and higher

Lenders who advertise to E-1, E-2, and E-3s are often looking to take advantage of their lack of financial management experience 4. Single balloon payment:

Unlike most consumer debt, payday loans do not allow for partial installment payments to be made during the loan term. A borrower must pay the entire loan back at the end of two weeks Personal Finance Savings Short term investments Emergency Fund
