Replayed Post on Money, Health, and Other Things! Predatory Lending – Part VI

With the moratoriums on evictions* and foreclosures expiring this month, predatory lending practices will sadly likely be more prevalent this summer. Given that, we’ve decided to take a pause on our retirement series and revisit our predatory lending series. This week we’ll return and conclude our series on predatory lending and discuss possible alternatives to predatory loans.

*Certain renters in high-transmission areas may still be protected from eviction until October 3rd – review this CDC document for more information!
