The Dangers of Installment Loans

Table of Contents

High Interest Installment loans

You may have heard of these loans a bit more lately in the news, they are a little different than PayDay loans. With Installment loans, these are high interest subprime loans, and unlike PayDay loans, they are not capped at 21%.

With Installment loans, these are quick approval loans, with an apr of 46.96% and they allow you to borrow at much larger amounts than payday loans and with up to three years to pay back the amount.

PayDay Loans

With payday loans, the interest rate in Ontario with these loans cannot go above 21%, and with a payday loan, you typically pay the full amount of the loan back on your next payday.

Credit Cards

Standard credit card rates in Canada with some of the top financial companies tends to be around 19.99% for purchases, and 22.99% for Cash Advances. Any interest rate charged over 60% per annum is considered criminal.

Aimed at People with Bad Debts & Poor Credit

Unfortunately, both payday and installment loans are aimed at the people who tend to have poor credit and bad debts. These style of loans can often at times get some people stuck in a slippery slope of debt.

Optional Insurance

Another consideration with installment loans is the optional loan insurance. Loan insurance payments are not included within the actual interest calculations. With the already high interest rate, the added loan insurance makes these types of loans very expensive in the long run. Always know exactly what you are signing, read all the fine print, know all the fees included.

I had a great experience with Jerry Janiec and his team at David Sklar and associates. Within a week I was already accepted and filed for bankruptcy and in a few months I will be debt free! It feels like a lot of stress is off my shoulders. Jerry and his team are very friendly, helped me along the way and was there to explain every detail of the process with me. He gave my his card and is just an email/call away if I need any help with paperwork and completing my duties. He is a very patient and kind professional and I am so glad I chose him and this company to help me fix my financial problems. If you need help with a consumer proposal or bankruptcy (like I did) I highly recommend Jerry Janiec and David Sklar and associates!
