WASHINGTON — A California payday loan provider is refunding about $800,000 to customers to settle allegations it steered borrowers into high-interest loans and involved with other illegal methods, state officials stated Monday.

California Check Cashing Stores additionally consented to spend $105,000 in charges along with other expenses in a permission purchase because of the state’s Department of company Oversight, which was cracking straight down on payday as well as other high-cost customer loans that experts allege are predatory. The organization would not acknowledge shame into the permission purchase.

The division, which oversees economic companies and services and products, has brought comparable actions against four other businesses since late 2017 included in an endeavor to enforce the state’s restrictions on interest levels for payday as well as other small-dollar loans.
