You would need to have employment and a rnecet paycheck stub. You may also need to bring a utility bill or something else that has your name on it. They also require a state ID or drivers license as well as a bank statement and check book. You cannot just bring in a check to write out for the payday loan. Yes, they charge upwards of 600% interest. Most payday loans are for 30 days max, but most want you to pay the loan back on your next payday. So, if you get paid every 2 weeks, they would want their money in 2 weeks unless you can convince them to let you go the 30 days. The problem with a payday loan is it becomes a vicious cycle for some that is hard to escape, as you can never pay off the loan itself plus the huge interest they charge. Most people just renew the loan or keep rewriting the loan over and over. Some get in so far over their head that they have to go to another payday lender to borrow in order to pay the first lender off! LOL As you can see, this is a slippery slope and if you are on the verge of being destitute, you want to do everything in your power to avoid this type of loan.
