What is the Best Way to Handle Payday Loans I Can’t Pay? – Scott

I have several payday loans that currently I can’t pay back on time. I have three that are current, within the last 2 months and 2 or 3 that are several years old. I have recently been contacted by 1 of the older payday loan companies for payment.

What is the best way to handle these payday loans and get them paid back? Do I start with the oldest one first and work my way up thru the rest of them?

I’m currently backed-up on answering questions so I’m posting some of the questions here for you to help answer.

    Despite the threatening and abusive tactics they use, my findings are that payday loan companies have no more rights than any other lender in the eyes of the law. Draw up a budget (a ‘statement of means’), then make them an offer based on what you can realistically afford, making sure your own basic needs are met. It’s then up to them if they accept your offer. Try to keep calm, keep everything in writing and do not allow them to manipulate you emotionally to their own greedy and immoral ends. I paid back over $2000 payday loans 4 years ago. Please note that I’m not legally qualified to offer any formal advice; these are friendly suggestions based on my own experience, but are not a substitute for legal advice. I am not a lawyer nor a financial advisor – I’m simply a winner against the greed of the banks :)
