As a responsible lender, we commit to you that this loan product abides by all applicable laws and that we strive for the utmost level of transparency and fairness:
Not for all financial needs: We encourage you to (1) borrow only what you need and can repay, (2) shop the marketplace until you are convinced that you have found the best possible solution. You may choose to consult a consumer credit counseling service for other options.
Transparency of costs for your loan: The cost will be clearly disclosed to you in terms of the dollar amount of the cash advance fee and the periodic fixed finance charge. For details on the specific costs, please see the Agreement and Terms and Conditions. We will never charge you any "hidden fees" that are not fully disclosed in the Agreement and Terms and Conditions.
Right of Cancellation: If you change your mind about your loan, you may cancel it at any time prior to you making a draw. You also may repay any borrowed amounts at any time without incurring a prepayment penalty.
Implications of Late and Non-Payment: If you don't make a payment on time we will attempt to contact you via one or more authorized methods, including phone calls, emails, and text messages to arrange for payment. All of our collections methods will be in accordance with the principles of the Federal Debt Collections Protection Act (FDCPA). In addition, we may re-present any returned payments to your bank in accordance with applicable law and regulatory requirements. If we are unable to reach you or we are unable to collect against your debt we may place or sell your debt with third party collection agencies. However, we only contract with collection agencies that agree to follow the FDCPA. Furthermore, since we may report loan payments to one or more credit bureaus, late or non-payment of your debt may impact your credit rating.
Compliance with Laws: We are a tribal lending entity wholly owned by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a federally recognized tribe located within the United States of America and operating within the Tribe's reservation. As such, we abide by applicable tribal lending laws and follow the principles of applicable federal lending laws where they don't conflict with tribal sovereignty. These laws include (but are not limited to):
