There are established brick and mortar companies with online divisions like Capital One and other well-established lenders that can be trusted. For other less established online lenders, be very careful and do your due diligence before getting involved with them. One major red flag is if the lender is located on an Indian Reservation.
DON’T lend money from Indian Tribes!
Indian Tribes on Reservation are sovereign nations that don’t have to work within normal US Laws and most of the Indian Reservation lenders are charging rates of 87-108%! CRAZY RATES!
Make sure to do some research before working with an online lender. Most don’t easy show their addresses and that is a red flag! Look at the fine print. If you would go to Clear Creeks to investigate you could eventually see that Clear Creek is a Native American Lender by reading the following small print on their website… The Otoe-Missouria Consumer Finance Services Regulatory Commission is the public body solely responsible for the regulation of Clear Creek Lending. Clear Creek Lending is a tribal lending entity wholly owned by the Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, a sovereign nation located within the United States of America, and is operating within the boundaries of the Otoe-Missouria Reservation.
Here is a Partial List of Indian Tribe Lenders…
- Bottom Dollar Payday
- Blue Trust Loan
- Clear Creek Lending
- Cover Me Cash
- Radiant Cash Loans
- Red Leaf Lending
- Real Payday Lender
- Sierra Lending
- West River Cash
Indian Lenders can’t come into the US without using US laws. We suggest you pay the principal and maybe a bit of interest and wash your hands of it. In most cases, US law will defend you if you do this. Get the courts involved if they don’t stop bothering you.
