Signs of Predatory Lending 1. Triple digit interest rate: Payday loans carry very low risk of loss, but lenders typically charge fees equal to 400% APR and higher 2. Short minimum loan term: Payday customers unable to repay their loan within two weeks are forced to get a loan "rollover" at additional cost. In contrast, small consumer loans have longer terms

3. Lenders who advertise to E-1, E-2, and E-3s are often looking to take advantage of their lack of financial management experience 4. Single balloon payment: Unlike most consumer debt, payday loans do not allow for partial installment payments to be made during the loan term. A borrower must pay the entire loan back at the end of two weeks Navy Salary (O-1)
