Description of loan scams-- not just extremely high interest, but extorting money from people who either repaid loans, or who only applied for loans.
I've been wondering for a while why there aren't decent check-cashing and payday loan companies-- charging higher than average interest, but not outrageously so, and making the terms clear. This should especially be the case for check-cashing companies, because it seems like they're unlikely to lose money on the checks they cash.
This seems like something a non-profit or a not-for-profit could get into even if there are no for-profit corporations who want to do it (and why not?), and be a really valuable service.
What am I missing?
