  1. I don’t know why payday loans and debt management companies are being bracketed together since one is designed to get you into debt and the other to get you out.

  2. Some debt management companies and payday loan companies do share some common ground insofar as they depend on the misfortune, and often a lack of financial sophistication, of the people they purport to help.

    Some people who enter debt management plans can often find themselves subject to unreasonable administration fees and in a worse position than they were at the outset.

    I know of one debt management company who advise new clients to max out all credit cards, overdrafts, and any other lines of credit immediately prior to setting up the plan. Bad advice and hardly ethical.
