Do not forget about caution!
Payday Loan is becoming more accessible, but in order to take a loan you need not to forget about caution. Together with the total amount of payday loans, the number of frauds by unscrupulous payday loans is growing. The BRR Bank each year deletes a number of companies from the register of Payday Loan. So, for example, in the beginning of February an organization emerged in the Kirov region, which issued a cash loan at 2379%. At the moment, the ABC Bank requested to submit documents from this company.
The client turned to the prosecutor’s office, after the application and consideration of the case, the BRR Bank joined. The woman was given a microloan for 20 days at 292% per annum. After some time, an additional agreement was signed, as a result of which the terms of the agreement changed. As a result, the interest rate has increased almost tenfold.
At the moment, the ABC Bank has conducted an initial audit of the organization. The payday loan is listed in the registry and conducts legal activities. The requested documents have not yet been received for further consideration.
