I have 3 payday loans, that I paid well over the initial loan amount, 100% or more per loan, before closing my bank account. I sent emails to all three asking for a settlement amount, 2 of the 3 have come back with at most 70% of the current balance. CheckNGo I paid almost $1800 total over 2/3 of this year, on a $500 loan, they still want about $500. The other Beachside Cash, which I can't find any reputable info on, I paid $760 on a $300 loan, and they still want about $400. I have asked for a statement showing account activity (initial loan, refinances & payments) from both, and have asked for mailing address and name of parent company for Beachside. These requests have not been answered. Only emails saying I've only paid on the interest. Is there a way to get these closed?

Did you NOT read the Truth in Lending Statement which informed you that the interest on the loans was probably 300+% for each loan? You have only been paying interest and you still owe the rest under the contracts. They have no reason to settle for less. You can choose to stop paying and start dealing with third party debt collectors in the hope they will violate federal law or file bankruptcy. If they do violate collection law, you could sue if you could find them.

You might want to talk to a local debt settlement / bankruptcy lawyer about how to do this.
