I guess the Mafia is officially out of the loan sharking business. You can get your loan through the Native Americans legally and they probably won't break your legs if you don't pay.

This will get you out of debt. I like the $500 loan fee on the $1500 loan and 234% interest.

I think the short term interest on Greek bonds is now something like 400% ... meaning anyone that buys them are not likely to every see a penny of their money returned, let alone any of that 400% interest.

Yeah I was watching TV last night and saw the commercial. The "fine print" flashed at the bottom of the screen so I backed up the DVR and paused it on the fine print. I was laughing my ass off.

There are some people that will enter into a loan with these terms.

I mean....look what a $5000 loan will cost. You have to make a $487.00 payment for 7 years!!! That 5 grand will cost you $35,000 in interest!!!!!

That caught my ear too. I was thinking that they must have been required to say that.

Wow...worse than the "buy here, cry here" loans the used car lots make!!

I think a law was passed that made the lenders show the rates at those payday loan joints...they are up there in that range too...

Went to school with a guy that saw a newer Ford focus drive up to scrap yard to be crushed. The owner said insurance had totaled it and was going to get all he could for it. The scrap yard said 350 another guy said 375 the guy I knew waited for numb nuts to go get the money and walked up with $400. Got it drove her straight to one of those title loan places got 2k for the car and left it setting in the parking lot. Not a bad days work

You nailed that one, they ain't. Combination of the economy and the large number of newly opened casinos.

Sad thing is in a few couple years we will hear the SOB STORIES of those that were taken advantage of with these high interest loans and it will be the fault of the native Americans for being so greedy and not the fault of the dumb asses that borrowed the money

I like the Indian chicks they use for the commercials, they didn't pluck them out of reservation housing.

The same thing exists on a larger scale for businesses as well. You get a loan and then pay back via pledged cc receipts. No interest rate is stated and in fact they will refuse to quote you one. Have calculated rates in the 200+ % range with these.

I honestly thought the commercial was joking when I first saw it. I was waiting for the punch line but it never came. People would have to be crazy to buy into this crap.

From their "terms of use"

"All loans will be subject solely to the exclusive laws and jurisdiction of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Cheyenne River Indian Reservation. All borrowers must consent to be bound to the jurisdiction of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Court, and further agree that no other state or federal law or regulation shall apply to this Loan Agreement, its enforcement or interpretation."

So if you got the money from them, what could they do to a US citizen if they decided to not pay it back?

Figure, a $36,000 loan, at 7.25% for 15 years, taken to term with no additional payments, the interest will come to just under $24,000.

What about mortgages? Yikes!
