If payday loans are illegal in NC, do I have to repay them? Because I am struggling to do so.

Asked over 1 year ago - Cary, NC

I have repaid some of the loan balances plus additional $$$ just in fees from these payday creeps. I recently discovered that these internet loans are illegal in NC. Does this mean I don't have to repay them at all? The fees are killing me!!

    Answered . I don't think many attorneys will advise you not to repay your debt just because you decide that you don't want to, or because you now regret getting yourself into a bad deal. It is not clear from your question if you have tried to work with them or not. This issue of "what can they do to me if I don't pay because I can't afford to pay them any more" is not really the question you presented.
