    'Chequeless' Money Shop Loan :-/

    'Chequeless' Money Shop Loan :-/ 7th May 11 at 4:21 AM

    After clearing my past loans with the 'Money Shop', I stupidly took out a 200 loan with them last week.

    They want 250 back in 3 weeks and there's no way I can pay it.

    I'm a recovering alcoholic and stupidly fell off the wagon last week.

    Am already in debt to the tune of 15K +

    What's even more worrying is that I told them I was still working in my old job when I haven't worked since January.

    Can't sleep worrying about this.

    Money Shop apparently take the money straight from your account using your debit card.

    I gave them my (secondary) basic bank account Visa debit card, and am now worried I'll be on trouble with Co - op and will lose my account.

    Worse still, when Money Shop find out the money isn't in there in three weeks time, they'll call my (ex) employer who'll tell them I no longer work there = fraud = trouble with the law.

    The stupid things I've done when I've drank make me feel sick.

    Any practical advice as to how I best deal with this would be most appreciated.



    PS - Thank You God for helping me stay sober this last week. Back to see some old friends at AA tomorrow. Nervous, but looking forward to it
