offer payday loans via the Internet, one of the alternative
methods (cash rebates, ISP model, etc.) discussed in our
training materials, or the newest model, the CSO (Credit

Consumers who use payday lenders may not have the option soon
because of a decision Thursday by the state banking
The ruling only ordered Spartanburg, S.C.-based Advance America,
one of the nation’s largest payday lenders, to stop selling cash
advances. But the reason behind the decision applies to any
lender that outsources certain functions to out-of-state banks
to circumvent state laws capping interest rates, the state
attorney general said.
“This decision means that payday lenders using this rent-a-
charter model are operating illegally in North Carolina,”
Attorney General Roy Cooper said.
Payday lenders can charge interest rates exceeding
400 percent per year. Customers write a check, post dated to
their payday, that includes the loan amount plus interest,
generally a minimum of about $15 for every $100 loaned.
State law caps annual rates on small loans such as those sold at
payday lenders at
36 percent.
From 1997 to 2001, payday lending was legal.
But state legislators did not renew the legislation allowing it.
Since then, payday lenders have operated by affiliating
themselves with out-of-state banks. Those partnerships have
previously pre-empted state regulation under the Federal Deposit
Insurance Act.
Commissioner Joseph Smith Jr. found that Advance America flouted
the law by saying it was only an agent of out-of-state banks
when, in reality, it received the bulk of customer fees.
For example, Smith determined that Advance America continued to
operate after the state’s law expired by contracting the funding
and underwriting of its loans for a fee equal to about 10
percent of its revenue.
“We’re disappointed by the ruling, especially given the fact
that we provided such detailed records in support of the
legality of our operations,” Advance America spokeswoman Patsy
Alston said Thursday afternoon. “The ruling works to eliminate
one of the few short-term financing options that North Carolina
citizens have.”
Spokesmen for two other large payday lenders in the state, Check
’n Go and Check Into Cash, did not return phone calls Thursday.
Advance America can appeal the ruling to the state courts and to
the full N. C. Banking Commission.
The company stopped selling loans in North Carolina in mid-
September when First Fidelity Bank of Burke, S.D., said it was
suspending its arrangement with the company. Advance America
attorney Saul Pilchen, of Washington, did not return a phone
call Thursday afternoon seeking comment.
State Rep. Earl Jones, D-Guilford, who favors allowing payday
lenders to operate in the state, said the ruling does not
eliminate the demand for services offered by the stores.
“There’s a need that’s not being filled, and that’s why this
industry was able to thrive,” he said.
“Consumer groups and the banking industry need to come up with
legislation or policy that meets the needs of lower middle-class
working people,” he said.
The alternative is people turning to online lenders and other
unregulated sources, he said.
Earlier this year, a spokeswoman for Wachovia said the bank had
no plans to offer payday loans. A spokesman for Bank of America
declined to comment about the issue at the time.
In October the chief legal counsel for the N.C. Pawn Broker’s
Association said he expected to see an increase in business at
members’ shops if the commissioner decided to shut down payday
Mark Pearce, president of the Durham-based Center for
Responsible Lending, said people would have other options, such
as credit unions, credit cards and other commercial lenders that
offer more reasonable interest rates, to meet their financial
“If there is a need, it’s already being met,” Pearce said.
“North Carolina families struggling to make ends meet should no
longer be ensnared in the payday lending trap.”
The State Employees’ Credit Union offers salary advances to
members at 12 percent — a lower rate than payday lenders. The
program forces borrowers to save by putting 5 percent of each
loan into a savings account as collateral and limits withdrawals
from the account. Not everyone is eligible to join the credit
“Our focus is getting people to the point where they don’t have
to use the service,” spokeswoman Leigh Brady said.
