know does not hurt him, but in business....
what he doesn't know does hurt." E.S.Lewis

High-Cost Financial Services
Loan money on tangible possessions such as jewelry or other items. Loans usually $50-$75 to be repaid in 30-45 days. They sell items not redeemed. Charge 3% interest on loans.
Check Cashing Outlets:
Most financial institutions will not cash a check unless the person has a bank account. Charges are 1-20% of the face value of the check. (ie. local Grocery stores) Average 2-3%
Pay Day Loans:
Are typically marketed to bridge a cash flow shortage between pay or benefits checks. Also referred as cash advances, check advance loans, and delayed deposit funds. 780% interest rate.

First, if you take out a payday loan, you will likely be charged a fee of between $10 and $30 for every $100 borrowed.
A $15 per $100 fee is typical. So, if you have an emergency and need $300 today, you would have to pay back $345 in a couple of weeks, assuming a fee of $15 per $100 borrowed. If your budget is already tight, that may be hard to do. The payday lender may encourage you to pay just the fee and extend the loan another few weeks. In that case, you would spend $45 and still owe $345 when the extension is over – that means you’re spending $90 to borrow $300 for one month.
Refund Anticipation Loans:
You are paying to borrow your own money!. Get your tax refund immediately when in fact you are taking out a loan- usually very high interest rate, usually more than 100%.
Auto Title Loans:
The car title secures the loan. These loans are usually for 30 days or less. Interest high (several hundred percent) and if not paid, lender can sell car.
How do you calculate (three things you need to know?
1) Amount financed ($350)
2) Finance Charge ( $50)
3) Term of the loan (14 days)
50/350 = 0.142857
0.142857 x 365 = 52.142857
52.142857/14 days = 3.7244897 x 100 =
