I n spite of public controversy and warnings from regulators, a few national and regional banks are routinely making payday loans, marketed under more appealing names. As shown by previous research and discussed here, these loans are promoted as a short-term solution to a financial shortfall, but in fact they keep borrowers trapped in extremely high-cost debt for a significant portion of the year. Bank payday loans are structured in the same way as other payday loans. The bank deposits the loan amount directly into the customer’s account and then repays itself in full, plus a very high fee, directly from the customer’s next incoming direct deposit of wages or funds such as Social Security checks. If the customer’s direct deposits are not sufficient to repay the loan, the bank typically repays itself anyway within 35 days, even if the repayment overdraws the consumer’s account, triggering high overdraft fees for subsequent transactions. The great majority of banks do not offer payday loans, but as of August 2013 we are aware of at least six that do: Wells Fargo Bank, U.S. Bank, Regions Bank, Fifth Third Bank, Bank of Oklahoma and its bank affiliates,1 and Guaranty Bank. The federal prudential banking regulators—who have long expressed concern about payday lending and who stopped banks from partnering with non-bank payday lenders years ago—have recently expressed serious concern about bank payday lending and proposed guidance that would put in place important protections. In addition, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently released initial findings based on its analysis of bank payday data, expressed concern based on those findings, and indicated that it will take further action to address those concerns. CFPB’s findings are noted throughout this chapter, and the supervisory developments are discussed in the Legislation and Regulation section at the end.
Internet Payday Lending: How High-Priced Lenders Use the Internet to Mire Borrowers in Debt and Evade State Consumer Protections November 30, 2004 Executive Summary • Payday lending has expanded from check cashing outlets, pawn shops and payday loan outlets to the Internet. Loans are marketed, delivered and collected online at rates and terms that mire cashstrapped consumers in repeat borrowing at extremely high costs. Finance charges are in the $25 (650% APR) to $30 (780% APR) per $100 borrowed range, with built in loan flipping in many contracts. • Web sites marketing and/or delivering small loans are growing rapidly, with numerous referral sites feeding applications to actual lenders. Lenders are hard to locate, identify or contact. Some are licensed in their home states, while others hide behind anonymous domain registrations or are located outside the United States. • Banks are involved in Internet payday loans through the Automated Clearing House System (ACH) used to electronically deliver loans to consumers’ bank accounts and to withdraw payments. County Bank of Rehoboth Beach, DE, participates directly in Internet payday lending. • Internet payday lenders bypass state usury laws and consumer protections by locating in lax regulatory states and making loans without complying with licensing requirements or state protections in the borrower’s home state. State regulators, notably in Kansas, New York and Colorado, are beginning to enforce state usury and small loan laws against lenders making loans online to state consumers. • Payday loan applications made online expose consumers to privacy and security risks as bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, and other personal financial information are transmitted to lenders, often over unsecure web links. Privacy policies do not protect privacy. • Federal electronic banking laws and industry self regulatory rules for use of the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system do not adequately protect consumers who use electronic fund transfers to borrow and repay loans from bank accounts.

The rising tide of globalization over the last couple of decades has seen a corresponding increase in income gaps between the rich and poor of the world – with the rich getting richer while the poor get poorer. This has been the global pattern according to World Bank statistics . However, this anomaly is even more visible within the countries of Sub-Sahara Africa where World Bank figures  show an alarming overall drop in house-hold incomes over the last 10 years – in fact, since the transition from colonial rule to independence, for most of these countries. http://www.scirj.org/december-2013-paper.php?rp=P121369
During the holiday season many of our clients ask us about travel restrictions. A permanent resident card (green card) is issued to foreign aliens typically for a period of ten years. Some foreign aliens who adjust their status through a marriage to a US citizen spouse may have green cards that are only valid for two years. Before traveling outside the US you must be sure your green card will be valid upon your reentry into the U.S. and that you have evidence that you have not abandoned your intention of residing in the US. The filing of a US Tax Return, proof of residence, driver’s license, US credit cards and bank accounts usually help. Green Card holders are permitted to travel outside the US for a period of up to one (1) year without consequences on their status. However, if a green card holder intends to stays outside the US for more than one (1) year but less than two (2) years the green card holder must apply for a reentry permit before leaving. If the green card holder travels outside the US for more than two (2) years, and a reentry permit was not issued, the green card holder will then need to either obtain a returning resident special immigrant visa upon a showing that he remained outside the U.S. due to circumstances beyond his control, or reapply for a new green card.
