Every installment loan, payday loan, car title title loan lender… all consumer lending business owners need information about their competition. As lenders in “the business of lending money to the masses,” I must know what my competition is doing!
I gotta know what’s working for other payday loan, title loan and installment lenders in my area and beyond!
Enable your competition’s employees to spill their guts!
How to “get the dirt” on your competition.
Try Craigslist.com. Run an ad.
Or, as I illustrate below, use Indeed.com to find experienced consumer loan customer service agents and management professionals having SERIOUS EXPERIENCE in the business of lending money.
Input “payday loans” or “car title loans” or consumer loans” or installment loans” or… into the “WHAT “ field. For “WHERE” input your location. [Recall from our “Bible” that you do NOT need a local employee for many of the employee positions needed in your consumer loan business. A remote employee living in a low cost city such as Albuquerque could certainly make collection calls or underwriting calls all day long for your consumer lending business. They could perform all your social media tasks just as well. Why pay a Houston or Los Angeles based employee to knock out your Facebook, Blog Posts, Twitter, Instagram… social media chores? No need!] Here’s a sample of my results for experienced consumer loan pros in my area of Newport Beach, Calif. Couldn’t I just as well plug in Tupelo, Mississippi, one of the cheapest US cities to live in?
Here’s a free template you may use to start:

|CSO Credit Services Organization Report (Texas)
An analysis of the Credit Services Organization Model as it applies to Texas. An alternative to the Payday Loan Model.
What is a Texas CSO Credit Services Organization?
In essence, a CSO or Credit Services Organization is defined by the Texas Credit Services Organization Act (Section 393 of the Texas Finance Code) as an entity or person that provides one of the following services:
* Improving a consumer's credit history or rating.
* Obtaining an extension of consumer credit for the consumer.
* Providing advice or assistance to a consumer regarding the previous two services.
How does the CSO Credit Services Organization work with payday loans?
The CSO Credit Services Organization operates as a broker, The Texas Credit Services Organization Act (CSOA) allows the payday loan lender to register as a CSO and act as a loan broker. Thus, the CSO can make loans via "3rd Party Lenders" that are UNREGISTERED and UNLICENSED. The CSO Credit Services Organization acts as a broker for the consumer in need of funds by issuing a "letter-of-credit" on behalf of the consumer to a "3rd Party Lender." This 3rd Party Lender funds the "loan" brokered by the CSO.
How does the Texas CSO Credit Services Organization collect its 3 fees:
A referral fee for referring the consumer to the lender that actually funds the "loan." This is not stipulated by any law but is currently $20 to $30 per $100.
An application fee for filling out the CSO documents; typically $10 per $100.
The interest on the "loan;" Texas state law caps this at 10%/year.
Our 100+ page "Texas/Ohio Credit Services Organization [CSO] Report" includes a thorough description of how this model works, how to construct the loan entity & the CSO, sample agreements between the CSO and the 3rd Party Lender, sample consumer contracts & more.

|How to Get Your Money
What can be worse than not getting paid? Getting sued, or FINED by Government agencies.
There are regulations at the Federal and State level that are created to protect the public from unsavory collections practices. As you work to collect your money, keep in mind that the courts have a mandate to take the side of your non-paying client. Even if this person has cursed you up and down, written you bad checks and lied to you every day for 10 years?
None of that matters. The courts and the law are created to protect the public. Not you or your business. If you go into a collections procedure with an attitude, and crappy documentation, you’re going to get run over by the system and it’s not going to cost your deadbeat customer a cent.
