More drama in Virginia

As of right now, Check n Go has stopped writing loans in Virginia. They are contemplating closing 68 stores in Virginia writes Forbes magazine.

On the surface, it does not make a lot of sense considering that the new payday laws allow a 20% fee plus 36% annual interest. The caveat is that it’s for a 30 day loan. Check n Go operates at around 6-8% net revenue, so they feel the extended period makes it tough to turn a profit.

It makes you wonder whether it’s worth operating in a state that has you on perpetual life support. Ironically, I bet lenders in Ohio would love to be in this situation.
