Stupid Errors by Payday Loan, Car Title and Installment Lenders

By | Aug 2, 2014

By: Car Title Loan Startup Guy. It’s no secret that state regulatory agencies are attempting to fund their budgets via fines paid by licensed car title, payday loan and installment loan lenders. Recently, Sue Hofer, a spokes person for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation said the following, “The state financial regulation agency has fined several payday and title loan companies in Springfield and the surrounding area for rules violations found by agency inspectors during annual examinations of the companies. The fines, which ranged from $1,000 to $7,000, were as a result of enforcement actions over the past several months.”

My point? Study the so-called errors made by these companies and get your house in order. And check out some of these names! Even the “big boys” screw up.” Of course, the companies listed below who eventually prove the state examiner who made the faulty claim will never be exonerated here or anywhere else. That info gets buried on page 47 of the “South Beach Who Gives a Crap News.”
