Can a payday loan company really take you to court and get you for a bad check in Texas even if you never wrote a check they just scanned it for your bank information?
Under law, a check can technically be written in any form. The point of a check is your willing authorization for your bank to pay the payee. When you allowed them to scan your check and presumably signed a contract they provided, you established a covenant with them and paid via check, even if the actual check never changed hands. If they paid you money, and you legally authorized this transaction, you've passed a check. While I cannot speak authoritatively on Texas law specifically, I'd say with no reasonable doubt in my mind: Yes they can.

no, they cannot take you to court. you are still responsible for the loan plus late interest plus default charges and nsf in the bank but actually its just a empty threat. Wha…t really happens is it goes to a collection department, who buys the loan from the loan company and they deal with it. it might hit your credit hard but at the same time it might not it depends on the company. I work in the industry and trust me so many people don't pay us its sickening but we can't do nothing about it!!!!

No, payday loans are illegal in Maryland. Any lender or collector giving loans or collecting on loans in Maryland has to be licensed in the State of Maryland. Payday lenders/c…ollectors are notorious for making illegal threats of arrest, summons, drivers license suspension, etc. All things designed to scare you into paying them. It is never illegal to default on ANY loan. That is a civil matter, not a criminal one. It is illegal for them to tell you that they are prosecuting or pursuing you for a crime. Report them to the Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation and the FTC.

CANADA Yes. Based on personal experience, a payday lender in Canada will take you to court, because they have the proof, and generally they already know they will win and ge…t their money. In Canada, they can also recover the small claims court fees that it took to sue you. In some cases, they do not have to exhaust any other remedies if they do not want to. Most payday lenders have such high bad debt that it makes sense to hire someone full time just to sue people. When payday lenders choose to sue you, they are already almost 80% positive they will recover the money due to the amount of information they have on your pay and banking. In Canada, the court will award the lender the ability to garnish your wages, and can also garnish people on disability and pensions. They also have the ability to allot any monies in your bank account towards the debt, and can take all the money in your account to go towards the judgment. That is why they like to know if you have automatic deposit to your account. United States of America Yes. Before a payday lender will take you to court (if they choose to go to court at all), they will generally exhaust all of the other remedies available to them under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Because of the size of payday loans and the relative cost in dollars and people resources to go to court, many payday lenders choose NOT to pursue legal remedies unless they believe that (1) the borrower has the means to make payment and (2) they can clearly establish that the borrower is in the wrong. Even after a civil judgment has been made against a debtor, in over 50% of cases, that debtor does not pay the debt.
Yes. And depending upon the circumstances the "bad check" issue might be a criminal one.
They will claim anything to you get you to pay them. Check with your State or County law regarding collection on debt. There are guidelines that they have to follow. That bein…g said I would be relatively confident in saying that no, they cannot claim that the money was issued on a bad check.
Payday loan company telling you that they are going to process your default as a bad check can they?
If you went to a store front location and physically wrote a check, agreeing that they would cash it in the future, then you could be charged for a bad check. Normally, you wi…ll have some time to pay it before it goes to the courts. If you took out an internet payday loan, then you did not write a check. Internet payday loans cannot claim to press charges for bad checks, it's not the same. At worst, they may be able to sue you for defaulting on the loan. Payday lenders will tell some whopping lies to scare you into paying them. Often, what they tell you is illegal. Research the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) for what collectors can and cannot do by law.
I guess it all depends, I might say. the amount of money you owe may play a significant part of the equation. For every company that "threatens" to put you in jail or have you… pay civil damages, there are those that so not follow this norm.
Yes. A payday loan company may sue a borrower in Texas in order to get their money back.

Can a payday loan company take you to court for nonpayment and bad check in Texas and can their be criminal charges?
Any lender can file suit against the debtor/borrower to recover monies owed. In the matter of criminal charges being brought concerning the check that depends upon the circum…stances. For example, if the person wrote the check knowing he or she did not have the funds in the account that could be construed as a deliberate attempt to defraud. Usually the person is given the chance to make the check "good' plus any fees connected with the transaction before any other action is taken.
