If you have decided on taking a personal loan but are not sure where to go to get one, always choose a licensed moneylender.
By choosing a moneylender that is licensed, you can avoid harassment which often happens with loansharks or unlicensed moneylenders. Licensed moneylenders are to adhere to strict laws or be subjected to hefty fines or face suspension of their licenses. Therefore, always take a personal loan only from licensed moneylenders.
Licensed moneylenders have restrictions imposed on them when charging interest for personal loans. This means that you can be sure that you are not being duped to pay ridiculously high interest rates and your loan will be more manageable to repay.
Moneylenders are not allowed to advertise or even send you any text messages of any sort to advertise or tempt you to take a personal loan. By sending text messages, moneylenders would be violating the personal DNC act and the moneylenders’ act and you can report them. These acts are in place to protect the general public from being lured into taking personal loans when moneylenders dangle a carrot in times of need.
