Emergency Payday Loans - Tide Over the Situation Instantly

By: Victor Stephens

A crisis situation like repairing your car, clearing a medical bill, making timely payment to avoid penalty can be a reason behind taking out Emergency Payday Loans. But such loans have also in built traps, which you must avoid by borrowing the money carefully.

These loans are made to the salaried class of people, who are in the current job for at least past six months, drawing a monthly salary of no less than $1000. Such borrowers must be US citizen of 18 years of age or above, with a valid bank checking account. The loan amount is given to the borrower in his or her bank account, electronically deposited within 24 hours.

Depending on your monthly salary, you can borrow $100 to $1500 for a very short period of 14 days, until your next paycheque. If you are unable to repay at the time of next salary cheque, then you can rollover the loan for a month or so. There is no security involved in the loan, except that some lenders give the loan against a post-dated cheque of the loan amount plus interest charges.

Interest charges on emergency payday loans are very high, with the typical interest rate being in the vicinity of 30 percent, which will go higher in case of extending the loan repayment. Hence, to avoid the debt-trap, pay off the loan at the first opportunity and borrow only an amount that is not a burden on your next salary.

A history of late payments, payment defaults and arrears is seldom a barrier, as these borrowers are given the loan approval without making any credit checks on them.

Do not rush to the first such lender you locate on the internet. Compare offers of emergency payday loans and you may find that some of these loans are being offered at comparatively lower rate on certain conditions. Surely these loans are source of money for urgency but you should avoid falling into a debt-trap.
