On their face payday loans and title loans are a quick fix. The problem is that once you take out just one ‘short term’ loan you will be paying on it for years because of the high interest. The average interest rate is 300% to 800%. One or two small loans will balloon to thousands of dollars. If you used a vehicle title loan (or registration loan) you will probably lose your vehicle.
Do some research about these loans and the vermin who make the loans.
