How to find out if you owe payday loans?
Many people who have the need for a personal loan will turn to a payday lender in order to get quick cash. Unfortunately, these loans tend to be associated with very high-interest rates and advance fees which can make repayment difficult. If you are unable to repay your payday loan on time, you may find yourself in a position where you owe the lender money.
Fortunately, if you are not able to make your payday loan payment as required by the lender (e.g., on-time) then most lenders will charge a late fee. This is very common and one of the main reasons that these loans tend to be associated with such high-interest rates and fees.
Here's how to find out if you owe a payday loan:
- Go through your checkbook and bank statements in order to look for any payments that you've made recently which were not typically due (e.g., automatic bill pay).
- If the lender only charged one late fee, then it is likely that you only owe the amount of the late fee.
- If, however, the lender charged multiple late fees, then it is likely that you owe an additional amount which corresponds to the number of times that the lender has charged a late fee.
- In addition, payday lenders will often report borrowers who do not repay their loans on time to credit agencies. This can have a negative impact on your credit score and make it difficult for you to obtain future loans.
If you are unsure of how much you owe a payday loan lender, then it is best to contact the lender directly in order to inquire about the amount that you owe. The lender should be able to provide you with a detailed statement of the fees and interest that you owe.
Remember, if you are unable to repay your payday loan on time, then be sure to contact the lender as soon as possible to work out a repayment plan. Failing to do so may result in additional fees and penalties.
