Pete Alfeche does not recall precisely how he first encountered CashNetUSA, the online affiliate for the payday loan provider Cash America. He thinks he got an email pitching a fast loan.
But Alfeche, a Havertown insurance adjuster, is convinced of 1 thing: just as much he needed the $250 he borrowed that day five years ago, taking the high-cost, short-term loan was a mistake he’d like to help protect others from making as he believed. Within per year, he had paid almost $2,000 in finance costs, most of it to repeatedly move within the initial loan.
Alfeche consented to inform their tale the other day to greatly help battle proposed legislation, sponsored by State Rep. Chris Ross (R., Chester County), that will bring payday loan providers back into the metropolitan areas, towns, and strip malls of Pennsylvania after having an absence that is six-year. Devamını oku
