Payday loan company: 'Help get your mate into debt and we will give you £20'

A payday lender is offering hard-up customers £20 to drag their friends into debt with them.

Speedy Cash is promoting the “bonus” as an incentive for clients to refer new customers to the lender – just as ­struggling families turn to emergency loans in the run-up to Christmas.

In-store posters and leaflets urge customers: “Send some friends. Earn cash rewards”, adding: “For every friend you send to Speedy Cash, we’ll give you £20.”

They show one person next to £20, two with £40, three by £60 with the words: “And so forth. You get the idea.”

Desperate customers are hit with a representative APR of 2115.69% on 30-day loans taken out.

Campaigners slammed the refer-a-friend scheme.

Stephen Sichel of London Citizens said: “It offers ­incentives for people to exploit their relationships and get friends into debt.

“People feeling the pressure at Christmas need support, not to be encouraged into cycles of debt. They’re preying on people’s vulnerability.”

Poll loading …

Labour MP Paul Blomfield, who has campaigned for a crackdown on payday loans, said: “It’s a nasty ploy. We’ve made enormous progress in regulating this rip-off industry but shameful tactics like this show the need for strong monitoring.

“Payday lenders are always looking for new ways to get people into debt.”

Speedy Cash, which has 23 branches in England and Wales, was rapped by regulators over ads last Christmas offering ­children free photos with Santa in store.

The firm did not respond to requests for comment.


Student overdoses after payday loan

PM to look at slimming pill warning Family seek ban on toxic slimmer aid Teen pills death parents ‘shocked’

A student struggling for cash overdosed on slimming pills after taking out a payday loan which saw a £100 debt shoot up to £800 in just three months, an inquest has heard.

Physics undergraduate Courtney Mitchell Lewis, 21, from Aberdare, Rhondda Cynon Taf, took 17 tablets.

He alerted friends on Facebook but died in hospital, the Swansea hearing heard.

The coroner said Mr Lewis made “a cry for help” and recorded a verdict of misadventure.

Mr Lewis, known as Mitch, had been working as a barman while studying at Swansea University.

But he decided to use a payday loan company to borrow £100.

However, the loan debt rapidly increased to £800 within three months.

The company offering the payday loan was not identified at the inquest but it is understood it was investigated by police and found to be operating legally.

In May last year, following a night out with friends, Mr Lewis took Dinitrophenol (DNP), which he had bought to lose weight, at his flat in Swansea.

He later posted a message to friends on Facebook saying: “I don’t want to die, I think it is too late.”

His friends called the emergency services and he was taken to A&E, but later died.


DNP is deemed as unfit for human consumption and illegal for use in food but are used by bodybuilders and people trying to lose weight.

Colin Phillips, acting senior Swansea coroner, said: “Mitch was a loving and caring individual who was facing a number of personal problems.”

He added: “Mitch took 17 tablets as a cry for help, but despite alerting friends who took him to hospital he died of DNP toxicity.”

Mr Lewis was described as “the man who always smiled” by his friends.

Former students’ union president Luke James said: “His friendliness made it a better place to be every day.”


The 3 Golden Rules of Loaning to Friends and Family

Conventional wisdom holds that you should never loan more than you can afford to lose. Believe it. If your brother or your BFF asks for $500 for car repairs, you have no guarantee you’ll ever see those funds again.

How do I know? Because I’m owed money by both a relative and a couple of friends. They aren’t bad people, just casual with cash. I’ve long since written off the relative’s loan, especially since this person has given me a bunch of rides to and from the airport when I visit my dad.

If this situation sounds emotionally loaded, that’s because it is. Here’s what Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson has to say about the subject. Check it out, then read on for more detail.

Watch the video of ‘The 3 Golden Rules of Loaning to Friends and Family’ on

As for the other loans: I’m owed a total of about $2,100 but I’m about as likely to get it as I am to wring plasma from limestone. That was a calculated risk, and I have no one to blame but myself.

Fact is, I wouldn’t have made those loans if it kept me from paying my own basic expenses. You, too, need to keep in mind whether you can truly afford to lend money. If it’s going to torpedo your own budget, keep that wallet in your pocket.

Here are the Golden Rules of loaning to friends and family:

Rule one: Make a policy and practice of saying “no”

Have trouble saying “no”? Try it a different way:

“That’s not in my budget. Sorry.”“I have a strict anti-lending rule: I’ve lost too many relationships this way.”“I paid for your last car repair and you haven’t returned the money. I can’t do it again. Sorry.”“Let me look at my budget and see what’s possible. I’ll let you know by the end of the day tomorrow.” (This is for when you’re blindsided and/or it’s a very emotional situation. Go home and send a “that’s not in my budget, sorry” email.)

And if the would-be borrower continues to plead or badger you? Remind yourself that you cannot wreck your finances to prop up someone else’s. It’s really OK to reply, “I’m not in a position to help you and I won’t discuss it further. Sorry.” Be prepared to hang up the phone or walk out of the room.

Should the person bring it up again the next time you meet, firmly state that “if you keep talking about borrowing money, this conversation will be over.”

The most important thing to do is formulate your own policy now, so you won’t have to think on your feet when the situation arises. Maybe you only lend in dire emergencies, or to relatives with jobs, or to nobody, no matter what. The important thing is to decide on a policy, memorize it, practice saying it and stick to it – no exceptions.

And when confronted, don’t beat around the bush or ask to think it over. Your response should be immediate and firm.

Rule two: Try to help in other ways

Financial guru Dave Ramsey doesn’t think you should ever loan money, especially to family members. “It ruins relationships,” he says. “If you have the money to help then give it, don’t loan it.”

Don’t make a habit of it, though. If your cousin or your frat buddy needs help on a regular basis, those cash infusions address the symptom rather than the disease. Whether it’s careless spending or a lifestyle that’s too big for its britches, the underlying issue needs to be fixed, not enabled.

Offer help instead of a bailout, suggests wealth psychology expert Kathleen Burns Kingsbury. For example, you could decline to chip in on an auto payment or credit-card bill and instead propose help in setting up a budget or paying for a few sessions of therapy for a compulsive shopping problem.

“It may be that you can negotiate something where you’re helping, really helping,” Kingsbury says, “instead of supporting unhealthy behaviors.”

Other non-cash aid might include:

Making budget information available: Maybe your friend doesn’t want you snooping in his finances, but a site like Power Wallet will help him track expenses, set goals, measure progress and even find coupons – and it does it all privatelyHelping list items on eBay or CraigslistSuggesting they investigate peer-to-peer lendingAssist them in finding a little extra workLending or buying them a personal finance book (I’d suggest anything by Liz Weston, Clark Howard or, of course, our own guru, Stacy Johnson.)Signing them up for the Money Talks News newsletter

Rule 3: If you must loan, be smart about it

If you do decide to lend, get it in writing. Seriously. Even if it’s your mom or the parents of your godchild.

You can get a free promissory note form online from Suze Orman. Gail Cunningham of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling suggests getting the documents witnessed and notarized. This shows the borrower that you’re serious about being repaid. It also protects you later on if things get ugly – for example, if that former BFF stands in front of a judge and says, “It’s not my signature.”

Be specific about repayment terms. “As soon as possible” is vague enough to be interpreted as “any time from next week to never.” Spell out what happens if you were to die before the loan is repaid: Will it be forgiven, owed to the estate or (if the borrower is a close relative) be subtracted from that person’s share of any inheritance?

You might also consider putting this phrase into the document: “If you don’t repay me via the terms on which we agreed, you will never again be allowed to ask me for money.” (If this person has the chutzpah to ask for additional bucks a couple of years after stiffing you, turn the agreement into a paper airplane and throw it at him.)

If this is a major amount of money vs. spotting a pal $50 until payday, protect yourself by talking to a lawyer and, possibly, requiring something to secure the loan.

Again, you shouldn’t lend money you aren’t willing to lose. Promissory paperwork notwithstanding, are you really prepared to take a sibling or a friend to court?

P.S. With regard to my own money lending, the bank is now closed to all but the most serious family emergencies.

Local woman has warning about payday loan scam

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Most of us need a little extra cash in our pocket from time to time. When funds are low, some turn to a payday loan company.

But as one Las Vegas woman recently learned, you’ve got to be careful about who you do business with.

“So it’s just been really, you know, I’m having a hard time,” said Sandra Pickens.

She said money is tight. She’s been out of work for the last nine months. To cover her expenses, Sandra said she applied for a payday loan.

“Just did a Google search you know, put in a general application,” said Sandra.

Sandra said she applied through an unknown service, that sent her application to a number of loan providers. Shortly after, she got a call from someone claiming to be a lender.

“I couldn’t understand what he was saying. I’m like, excuse me. What do I need to do? Who are you calling from?” said Sandra.

The person told Sandra she was approved for a $2,000 loan. But before getting the money, Sandra was told she’d have to pay an up front fee of $200.

“He’s like, well we need you to go purchase a prepaid card, like Green Dot, and put $200 on the card and then call us back,” said Sandra.

She said the request raised a red flag. Not only did she feel uncomfortable sending money, but she explained, she didn’t have $200.

“He was like can’t you go borrow it from your friends and family? And I’m like if I could, I wouldn’t be borrowing it from you,” said Sandra.

That’s when Sandra hung up and decided to reach out to Contact 13. She wants to make sure others know who they’re applying with, when looking for a payday loan.

“He had all my personal information. My date of birth, my social, where I live. I’m just glad I got the sense, to, I’m not sending them any money,” said Sandra.

Here’s the contact 13 bottom line: The Federal Trade Commission says if you’re told to pay a fee in advance for a loan, then it’s a scam. Never send money to someone you don’t know with a prepaid credit card or through a wire service.

Once that money is sent, it’s gone for good.

If payday loans have gotten you into trouble, there are several different organizations that can provide your with assistance. They will be able to help you for free and get you out of trouble.

It is important to understand payday loans. When you have successfully paid off you loan, you might be mad that you spent so much.

That way, you can borrow the money you need from yourself the next time you have a shortfall.

The advice here should help you find the loan you need. Before applying for any loan, know all you can.

How To Handle Payday Loan Harassment |

Image JustinHarelik-66x76.jpg

Dear Bankruptcy Adviser,
I have a company threatening me with a bench warrant. I believe it is from a payday loan I got a long time ago. They call me and my family. I don’t even know how they got my parents’ phone number. They call me at work and tell my co-workers I am a deadbeat. I am confused and upset. Can I do anything at all? This is horrible!
— Lucy

Dear Lucy,
I agree, it is horrible. I am truly shocked by this development in the payday loan world. The first time that a client called me about these types of calls, I was livid. I tried calling the company numerous times to yell, scream and threaten them with lawsuits.

I soon learned what you already know: There is nothing to be done about this. At least nothing you can do to go after these illegal actors.

I can’t say for sure how this illegal conduct has been able to continue for so long without either local or federal law enforcement agencies intervening. I have my theories, but nothing I can prove so I will just keep them to myself.

You took out a payday loan at some point in the past few years. You then defaulted on the scheduled payment. The lender tried to collect, but to no avail. It then sold or transferred the account to a third-party debt collector.

The third-party debt collector is usually an offshore company or a company that moves around and has no fixed location in the U.S. The collector will call you and do skip traces to find family and friends.

The debt collector says one of the following to you. He or she will also say a variation of the same thing to your friends or family:

I am on my way to the court to serve you with a lawsuit for bank fraud. You will go to prison for this.I am sending a local sheriff to your house today to arrest you for bank fraud. You bounced a check and now you are getting arrested.I have a judgment against you for bank fraud because you bounced a check. Even if you filed bankruptcy, you can’t wipe this out because you committed fraud.

All of this is untrue.

While the calls to friends and family might not end, you can stop the calls to yourself. You merely have to be strong and say to the debt collector that you know he is a fraud. You know he is not going to do anything, and you know he is going to keep calling.

Just say, “OK, I understand. Sounds serious, but I don’t believe you. I know this is a scam. I assume you will be calling me a lot, but I know you are not going to do anything. I guess we will be talking again tomorrow.”

Period. All my clients that say this tell me that the collection calls stop. The collector is trying to scare you into paying. Once he or she realizes you are not scared, he or she moves on to the next victim.


4 of 5 Payday Loans Are Rolled Over, Report Finds | Blog

The newest report from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau targets payday loans — in prepared remarks released ahead of a speech today in Nashville, Tenn., CFPB Director Richard Cordray referred to them as “debt traps.”

Released today, the report found that four out of five payday loans (sometimes called cash advances or check loans) are renewed or rolled over, essentially negating the purpose of the loan product as a short-term financial solution for cash-strapped consumers.

A Troubled Problem Solver

Payday loans are small-dollar loans — typically $500 or less — that are designed as emergency financing to be repaid with the borrower’s next paycheck. In addition to the triple-digit APRs that are often charged, these loans carry steep origination fees, and consumers can end up paying much more than they borrowed in the first place. The CFPB report found that three of five payday loans are made to borrowers whose fee expenses exceeded the initial loan amount.

If you’re wondering how that adds up, it’s because these loans become much more cyclical than they were intended to be. Only 15% of borrowers repay their payday debts when due without re-borrowing within 14 days (the CFPB considers payday loans taken out within 14 days of paying off the previous loans to be renewals, or part of a loan sequence). Conversely, four of five borrowers end up defaulting on or renewing a payday loan within a year.

“We are concerned that too many borrowers slide into the debt traps that payday loans can become,” Cordray said, in a news release about the report. “As we work to bring needed reforms to the payday market, we want to ensure consumers have access to small-dollar loans that help them get ahead, not push them farther behind.”

About half of initial loans are repaid within one loan renewal, but about one in five initial loans leads to a sequence of seven or more loans. Overall, more than 60% of payday loans are made over the course of loan sequences amounting to seven or more loans. About half of all payday loans are made to borrowers in a sequence of 10 or more loans in a row.

“From this finding, one could readily conclude that the business model of the payday industry depends on people becoming stuck in these loans for the long term, since almost half their business comes from people who are basically paying high-cost rent on the amount of their original loan,” Cordray said.

Potential Action

Obviously, this isn’t a rosy picture of the payday loan industry. Still, it’s a commonly used product: About 12 million Americans currently have payday loans. With a consumer base like that, it’s clear that there’s a need for short-term loans, which the CFPB acknowledges, but it is also clear that these loans could use a redesign.

Cordray says payday loan changes could be on their way soon, saying the CFPB is in the late stages of considering ways to reform the industry. Meanwhile, millions of consumers bounce from one payday loan to the next.
