Pay day loans are illegal in Maryland so there really isn’t anywhere to go for a legitimate pay day loan.

MD just restricts the amount of interest a payday loan company can apply. For a loan up to $1000 the max is 24% or 2%/month. It changes as the loan amount increases.,Payday%20lending%20status%20in%20Maryland%3A%20Prohibited,their%20typical%20triple%2Ddigit%20APRs.

Insert tribal loans. Which, if I had to guess, is what OP found. Tribal loan company with an “official” sounding name “Great American Financials” or “American River Loans” (hypothetical examples)

Yeah online seems to be exempt as they are located outside of the state.

Looks like we found the first easy bill Wes Moore could accomplish that should make both Dems and republicans happy

Yes but the reality is most pay day loans have usurious interest rates so it makes their business scheme illegal.
