I agree this is a predatory lab and you should seriously consider filing bankruptcy. In the short term, take all the money out of the bank account and deposit it in a new account at a new bank. Have any direct deposits go into the new account. Ask the Bankruptcy attorney if this sort of loan is legal in your state. If it is not, contact the consumer protection division of the state attorney General.

These type of loans are considered predatory in nature and will have you caught in an endless cycle of repayment. I suggest you reach out to an experienced, local bankruptcy lawyer who can give you good advice on how to make the payments stop, and how you can perhaps eliminate this debt altogether.
