    Payday Early Settlement 13th Apr 18 at 4:23 AM
    Hi
    I took out a payday loan on 26th Feb for 250. 1st payment on 16th April. I want to settle early and the figure is 344. Is this correct to charge such a high amount?

    Yes. They can add up to 56 days interest as an early repayment charge. At the 1000+ percent interest rates such loans have it adds up to a lot of money in a very short time.

    Yes that sounds about right. Awful companies. Best thing we can all do is put these people out of business by not using them.

    Serious question. What were you expecting? What is the APR?
