Payday and car title loans are designed to trap borrowers in 300-400% debt for months and sometimes years on end. Marketed as a quick fix for the cash flow problems of this country’s most vulnerable populations, these loans are anything but.

In states that allow payday and car title loans, they drain almost $8 billion in fees every year from the pockets of borrowers who can least afford it. By contrast, consumers in states where these loans are illegal SAVE over $5 billion every year in abusive fees.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will hopefully release its final national payday rule this month, taking a major step to rein in the worst payday abuses.
