Maine Payday Loans

If you have never looked for a payday loan before, you may not realize that the laws governing this type of financial transaction are determined by each individual state. In Maine, the laws regarding the business of cash advances are pretty lax, compared to other states. This is both good and bad for the consumer; on one hand, there is no limit to the amount that a person can take borrow but on the other hand, payday advance lenders do not have to abide by some of the consumer protections other states impose. It is up to the individual borrower to understand the terms of payday loans in Maine and use them responsibly. With no laws specific to cash advances, Maine lenders have no restrictions on collection methods for people who default.
