Many people have trouble paying back their cash advance loans, and rollover is common. In fact, 80 percent of cash advances are rolled over or followed by another loan within 14 days of the first.3 And far too often it doesn’t end there. The loan becomes due and borrowers still can’t pay back the lump sum they owe, so what do they do? They roll it over once more and the cycle starts again.

Another shocking and revealing study was release in May 2018 that states 40% of Americans cannot cover $400 in the case of an emergency expense. That means that 4 in 10 adults in the United States do not have enough cash on hand without borrowing money or selling valuables. At some point, everyone has trouble making ends meet - and traditional banks do not provide smaller loan amounts in a timely fashion. They have lengthy, confusing contracts that require collateral, good credit, and a specific purpose that must fall within their guidelines. Plus, they have a long application process and only accept large loan amounts. But this study shows that when a huge portion of the population will at some point need a few hundred dollars, immediately, they won’t have it to get out of their sticky situation. And banks won’t help. So where do people turn?

Because your repayment schedule is fixed, you can easily budget to ensure that you make your payments when they're due to avoid any unnecessary fees for defaulting.
Customer Notice: Payday Loans are typically for two-to four-week terms (up to six months in IL). Some borrowers, however, use Payday Loans for several months, which can be expensive. Payday Loans (also referred to as Payday Advances, Cash Advances, Deferred Deposit Transactions/Loans) and high-interest loans should be used for short-term financial needs only and not as a long-term financial solution. Customers with credit difficulties should seek credit counseling before entering into any loan transaction. See State Center for specific information and requirements.

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) received a report of what appears to be an advanced fee loan scam. A Washington State consumer reported that she received numerous phone calls after she gave her phone number to websites offering payday loans or loan matching services. Among the callers was a man claiming to be Kevin Berry of Quick Cash Loans. He offered the consumer a $1,000 loan if the consumer first put a $150 on a prepaid card and provided the card’s access code over the phone. After the consumer did so, the $150 was removed from her prepaid card and the consumer did not receive the promised loan.
Consider how much you are spending on religious tithing. If you’re overwhelmed with expenses and having to turn to sources such as fast cash and payday loans, it’s important to look at your full financial picture. You may feel burdened but content about reorganizing all the previously mentioned expenses, but thinking about not tithing can be spiritually troublesome. Consider talking to your religious leader about the issue. You’ll likely find they are very supportive while you get your own financial house in order. Once you are back on your feet, you may be able to contribute even more than you did before. Plus, there are more ways to contribute to your religious community than giving money. Time is just as valuable and can be more helpful.
