Keep NC Loanshark Free

Act Today to Keep Payday Lending Out of NC



Arthur Jackson, a grandfather in Raleigh, had his Advance America loan for over five years, paying over $5000 in interest for a $300 loan that was flipped over 100 times.


Betty W., living on social security income of $564 a month, got caught in the payday debt trap, paying half of her income in interest fees. Her phone was disconnected and she needed emergency help to pay her rent.

So, why have Senators Jerry Tillman (R, Moore, Randolph), Clark Jenkins (D, Bertie, Chowan, Edgecombe, Hertford, Martin, Northampton, Tyrrell, Washington) and Tom Apodaca (R, Buncombe, Henderson and Transylvania) co-sponsored Senate Bill 89, inviting predatory payday lenders back into North Carolina with open arms?

This bill is moving fast; please act today.

North Carolina residents spent years getting rid of payday lending in our state. Storefront and internet payday lenders have been illegal in NC since 2001. Then it took five more years and considerable legal action to get these predatory lenders out of our state for good. Why on earth are we inviting this predatory industry back into North Carolina?
