Join The Predatory Lending Association! is a clever parody site mocking payday loans and the efforts of groups like the The Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA), a lobbying group that tries to make the loan sharks look like respectable financial institutions.

Purporting to be a resource and awareness destination, the site contains such tips as “how to buy off a non-prof” to give your business the veneer of community support. A “testimonial” on the sidebar reads, “Even though I paid $800 in fees, the customer service representative was very professional.” One section debunks various “myths” like, “It is unethical to charge a poor person 100 times the interest rate a rich person would pay.”

We highly support The PLA and eagerly await for our membership to be accepted.
