The terms and conditions of a loan might differ from lender to lender. You will get them at the same time as the loan offer, so read them carefully. At the same time you will get payment plan and the interest rates for that loan. For small loans, the annual percentage rate can be quite high, and late fees can be huge. Make sure you agree with the terms and can pay the loan back in a given time before you sign the contract. If you have any problems meeting the payment deadlines, contact the provider straight away.
Credit card cash advances can come in handy when there’s a necessary expense that you can’t charge to your card (like rent) and you don’t have the funds to cover it otherwise. But the problem with credit card cash advances is that they have fees and interest rates that are generally much higher than if you just used your credit card to make a purchase. Also, you can only borrow as much as your cash advance limit allows, and if you already have a balance on your credit card, that amount may be reduced.
The phone number associated with this apparent advanced fee loan scam is 914-363-4505. The caller also claimed to have a physical address of 522 West Bank Street, White Plains, NY and a web address of www.myquickcashloan.net. However, there appears to be no such address in White Plains and the website belongs to a Texas payday lender who appears to be unrelated to this apparent scam.

Understand that borrowing money does cost money and you should do what you can to avoid taking out a payday or installment loan. These loan choices aren’t guaranteed and this option is great when you are in a pinch, it is not intended to be used regularly. If you are finding yourself needed to turn to fast cash loan options often, it’s best to look for other solutions to change your situation. You don’t want to get stuck in a payday loan cycle. Think about whether you you have any friends or family you can turn to that can borrow you money or if you have any valuables to sell to take care of your current immediate cash need. Then think about your broader financial picture.
In some cases, you may be given the option of obtaining a loan from a tribal lender. Tribal lenders are subject to tribal and certain federal laws while being immune from state law including usury caps. If you are connected to a tribal lender, please understand that the tribal lender’s rates and fees may be higher than state-licensed lenders. Additionally, tribal lenders may require you to agree to resolve any disputes in a tribal jurisdiction. You are urged to read and understand the terms of any loan offered by any lender, whether tribal or state-licensed, and to reject any particular loan offer that you cannot afford to repay or that includes terms that are not acceptable to you.
