Definition: bad credit (Cash Advances)

Payday loans provide cash advances to people in need of quick money. The payday loan store (or online pay day provider) can assist consumers in paying off debts such as utility bills or emergency car repairs when the cash flow is not readily available from their bank accounts.

Alternatives to Payday Loans (Cash Advances): The FTC has the following suggestions when researching an online payday loan provider or store:
A cash advance on a credit card also may be a possibility, but it may have a higher interest rate than your other sources of funds: find out the terms before you decide. Also, a local community-based organization may make small business loans to individuals.
If you need help working out a debt repayment plan with creditors or developing a budget, contact your local consumer credit counseling service. There are non-profit groups in every state that offer credit guidance to consumers. These services are available at little or no cost. Also, check with your employer, credit union or housing authority for no- or low-cost credit counseling programs.
