August 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Check ‘N Go for allegedly advertising its loans as a “short term solution and not as a source of ongoing help” and “a good alternative to … credit card debt” when, according to plaintiffs, the company burdens borrowers with expensive, long-term debt, enforced by unconscionable terms and conditions, which they know borrowers will have little or no ability to understand or repay. (Plaintiffs amended their complaint in July 2014.) (Townsend et al. v. Eastern Specialty Finance, Inc., d/b/a Check ‘N Go, Case No. 13-cv-01403, D. Del.)
