Did you know that Carolina Cash Fast Loan Centers is a proud member of CFSA Best Practices? This means that we are required to abide by mandated industry practices that ensure responsible conduct among lenders, protect borrowers’ rights, and encourage self-governance of payday advance industry.
What does being a member of CFSA Best Practices Mean?
A member will comply with the disclosure requirements of the state in which the payday advance office is located and with federal disclosure requirements including the Federal Truth in Lending Act. A contract between a member and the customer must fully outline the terms of the payday advance transaction. Members agree to disclose the cost of the service fee both as a dollar amount and as an annual percentage rate (“APR”). A member, in compliance with CFSA guidelines where they do not conflict with applicable federal, state or local requirements, will further ensure full disclosure by making rates clearly visible to customers before they enter into the transaction process.
A member will comply with all applicable laws. A member will not charge a fee or rate for a payday advance that is not authorized by state or federal law.
A member will not advertise the payday advance service in any false, misleading, or deceptive manner, and will promote only the responsible use of the payday advance service.
Encourage Consumer Responsibility
A member will implement procedures to inform consumers of the intended use of the payday advance service. These procedures will include the placement of a “Customer Notice” on all marketing materials, including all television, print, radio and on-line advertising, direct mail and in-store promotional materials.
