Background

For years payday lenders have lent money to financially vulnerable borrowers at extremely high annual interest rates, often exceeding 300-400%. A payday loan is usually a short-term, high cost loan, generally for $500 or less that is typically due on your next payday. These loans are traditionally known to exploit consumers in tight or difficult financial circumstances. Consumers often renew the loans when they are unable to pay them off, creating a cycle of mounting debt. Over the past decade, payday lending has become “one of the fastest growing segments of the consumer credit industry” and, as of 2005, “there were more payday-loan stores in the United States than McDonald’s, Burger King, Sears, J.C. Penney, and Target stores combined.[1]

In another type of loan, payday lenders sometimes offer installment loans in greater amounts, with even more excessive and unconscionable interest rates.

Most states have statutes protecting consumers and prohibiting the charging of excessive interest rates, also called usury. Like other states, California’s usury laws are primarily designed to penalize entities that take advantage of unwary and necessitous borrowers. Laws, such as those found in California’s Financial Code, describe different interest rate and other limitations for payday loans of different sizes or terms.  In addition, the charging of unconscionable interest rates may violate California’s consumer protection laws. Thus, California law may allow payday loan borrowers to recover all interest paid on the loans that exceeded the interest rate cap as well as other relief, including triple (treble) damages and attorney’s fees and costs.
