DOJ Attacks Tribal Payday Loan Lending Model

JDSupra-DOJ Takes On Tribal Lending: Inside The Indictments Law

DOJ Department of Justice Focuses on Tribe Sovereign Nation Lending Model

Between attacks by the CFPB and the Department of Justice, the tribe payday loan lending model is being heavily scrutinized. When set-up correctly, and when the tribe experiences a true beneficial interest in the lending enterprise, the “Sovereign Model” can still make sense.

“This indictment was followed on April 7, 2016, by an indictment in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania claiming that Charles Hallinan and colleagues allegedly used tribes in a similar manner to protect illegal lending operations.
This article examines the structure of loans in question, the relationships between lenders and tribes that have been alleged to be mere pretense, and the specific charges brought by the federal government.”

“Loan Structure”

“Several states prohibit payday loans, or have usury limits, that in effect, prohibit payday loans in their jurisdiction; these are known as “prohibited payday loan states.” There are also states that restrict payday lenders by placing licensing requirements on those lenders, and capping interest rates at particular levels, these are known as “restricted payday loan states.”

“The Tucker payday loan companies and the Hallinan payday loan companies did business in prohibited payday loan states, and failed to… Here’s the FULL ARTICLE from JDSUPRA:”
