Took a payday loan, account was default and collector is deducting

This answer was rated:

Took a payday loan, account was default and collector is deducting money from my account but not able to pay any more, I consider that I already pay the principal loan, I live in Florida what can I do to stop the collection company to keep making withdraws from my account

Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you,

 

 

The only way to stop them from taking money from your checking account is to closed that account and open another one with a different number. It would be preferable that you opened a checking account with another bank, that would be even better.

 

And, if they are doing business in Florida without a License, then they are acting illegally and you should report them to the Florida State Attorney General's Office by filing a formal Complaint. Here is the link:

According to the debt collector Florida law doesn't apply because is a tribal lender, if i close my account what are the chances this people get me to court (according to them still own them 1000 US) don't want to pay more in lawyer fees than what I own.

Hi, Hector,

 

That is an unfair question because you are asking me to predict the future as to what they will, or will not do. I cannot predict the future, but I can tell you that if I were in your position, I would not pay them any more than I already had and I would close out my account and open my checking account in another bank altogether. If they ever decided to sue me, I would like to see how a Judge would enter a judgment in their favor at such a high rate of interest. I doubt a Judge would do that. I would tell the payday loan company that I did not have any money to pay them, so even if they got a judgment against me, it would be worthless because they could not collect on it. . These payday loan people are loan sharks and I still cannot understand why they are allowed to remain in business,
