  • The interest will eat you alive. You'll make payments back that barely cover the interest, which means you'll be in debt forever.

  • I would borrow from anyone before going to one of those places. The interest rate is deadly.

  • Yes, it's real. Real expensive. Check their interest rates.

  • You're looking at 200%+ interest if you can't pay it on time. I can't count how many trashed credit reports I've seen that were cascading failures that started with a single quick cash loan.

  • As long as you understand you do have to pay it back. Think about it. If you don't have the money now... will you have it to pay back in 6 months?

  • I saw an article about one of those Native american lenders and they are being sued in several state because their loans break usury laws. The ones that limit how high interest can be. I would not do it this way. You may get out of one jam just to find yourself in a much bigger one.
