Credit scores affected by quick fix loans
Quick fix loans such as payday loans can often put people into a debt cycle they can't get out of.

When looking at payday loan, you should consider the following:
Payday loans tend to have higher fees and interest rates than other types of loans; and consumers can often find themselves having to take out another loan to cover these fees.
They are also notorious for affecting your credit score. Even an enquiry into taking out a payday loan will show up on your credit file, which can affect your ability to take out other types of loans down the track such as a mortgage or finance for a car.
It should also be noted that showing a reliance on taking out payday loans in your credit report will often interpreted by lenders as a signal that a person has bad financial management skills, even if you meet your loan repayments.
Yes Loans Finance Broker Goran Babac says "These days, it's very hard to stray clear of payday lending for consumers; with the world turning digital across the board, it's always in your face through TV advertising, radio, Facebook and any other social media platforms."
"As a consumer looking to finance a smaller amount of about $200-$4999, you will need to take into consideration that these loans are looked very harshly upon with non-pay day lenders. They carry a negative outcome to your credit score and are looked as hardship routes for someone who is struggling to manage their money."
"My advice to anyone looking at borrowing smaller amounts, is to save the money or see our personal loan brokers to help assist with our minimum lending amounts so we could potentially save your credit score from a negative impact," Mr Babac said.
