Payday lenders, pawnshops, check cashing stores, and auto title lenders are often guilty of offering "quick fixes" -offers to help you with your money problems fast. However, before you know it, you are even further in debt than when you started. This class explores the hidden and expensive traps associated with these types of lenders. You'll also learn where you can find more affordable loan options.
North Side can work with clients to consolidate credit card payments and overall debt. In some cases, we refer clients to our national partner, Green Path Debt Solutions. Call us for more information at (773) 769-5800.
