A major complaint consumers have against LoanMart involves their misleading ads. According to reports, the lender told clients that they would not seize vehicles for their auto title loans. However, upon successfully getting their loans, LoanMart had consumers’ vehicles towed.
Consumers of LoanMart complained about many billing issues including uncleared accounts and exorbitant interest rates. According to one account, a client who has reportedly settled their accounts with LoanMart was being harassed for further payments. LoanMart has also badgered the said consumer for personal information.
Poor Customer Service
On top of their disappointing financial services, LoanMart’s consumers have also lamented the company’s customer service. Consumers looking for ways to fix issues with their loans or accounts were faced with knowledgeable and basically unhelpful customer representatives. This poor service has led to many consumers tortured with their unresolved issues.
Unfortunately, misleading ads, billing issues, lousy customer relation complaints are just the beginning for LoanMart. The lender’s customers are left wondering what options they have regarding their consumer rights.

Mike Agruss Law gets results–including zero balances, refunds, and other compensation.
Here’s How to Make Big Companies Listen
It can be frustrating when you rely on a service and don’t get the results you’ve paid for. Big companies make mistakes every day and not only is it their fault, but it can also cost you money, time, and leave you with big headaches.
Have you tried calling LoanMart to address an issue, only to be told that the representative has no authority to do so? Or maybe you’ve tried talking to someone higher up in the company, only to be ignored, dismissed, or they take too long, continuing to waste your precious time. Maybe you’ve sent an email to the company which only resulted in a prefabricated response or they never follow through with what they’ve promised.
When you’re limited in your choices for service providers or you’re locked into a contract, what can you do?
Fortunately, you do have options.
Use Arbitration to Settle Your Complaint
Most companies like LoanMart have an arbitration clause in their contracts to prevent being taken to court for traditional litigation. This is actually an advantage for the consumer. When you request an arbitration hearing, an independent third-party (the arbitrator) with knowledge of the type of situation involved will listen to the facts from both sides and make an impartial, binding decision. LoanMart will have to do a lot of work and there is no guarantee that they will have a successful outcome.
Arbitration is Fast, Inexpensive, and Private
Arbitration with LoanMart is conducted through the American Arbitration Association (AAA). According to the AAA Consumer Due Process Protocol, arbitration through AAA will comply with their Statement of Principles, which includes:
- The process is fundamentally fair – All parties are entitled to qualified, competent, impartial arbitrators who will conduct a fair hearing.
- You get access to all relevant information – This includes reasonable costs, confidentiality, reasonable time limits, and meeting times and/or locations that are agreeable to both parties.
- Transparency – AAA provides clear arbitration agreements and the ability for each side to hire their own representation.
- Just process – Arbitration allows the arbitrator to award the same relief as traditional litigation in a binding decision.
- Alternative to arbitration – Mediation and the ability to take the case to small claims court should be available in some cases.
Arbitration Gives you Control and Leverage
When LoanMart is alerted that you plan to pursue arbitration, they know it will cost them money out of pocket. Not only do they run the risk of losing the case, but they will also pay for their mistake(s) and the arbitration itself. This gives you more leverage with your demands.
If LoanMart doesn’t meet those demands and you have a real complaint, Mike Agruss Law can help by representing you in arbitration where you will get a fair, just, and transparent hearing.
Control and Leverage Triggers Faster Settlements
Large companies like LoanMart don’t like the uncertainty and loss of control that comes with arbitration. Not only do they lose the advantage in the situation, but you’re also on equal footing with them in the eyes of arbitration.
The first step in taking on LoanMart is to formally raise your complaint. The lawyers at Mike Agruss Law can help you to do so. We will send a letter of demands to the corporate offices of LoanMart, letting them know that you’re ready to begin arbitration if a satisfactory resolution is not achieved. Typically, this is 30 days, but it will depend on your specific contract with LoanMart.
Approximately 50% of cases will settle before proceeding to an arbitration hearing during this time. However, if LoanMart doesn’t offer a reasonable settlement within the appropriate time frame, the next step would be filing a case with AAA. Mike Agruss Law will not only put together the necessary paperwork for arbitration, but we will also help you take the next steps in the arbitration process.
UDAAP and Arbitration
UDAAP is an acronym representing laws that prohibit Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices in the context of trade or business. This includes misrepresentation, deception, false advertising, or false promises. These laws emerged following the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that was enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. The ultimate goal with these laws is geared towards protecting consumers involved in financial transactions, educating consumers on their rights, and allowing them access to information and resources to best inform their decisions.
UDAAP laws are regulated by two organizations, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC expanded the initial UDAAP laws in 2004 to include unfair and deceptive acts and practices. Some standards for unfairness, in particular, include if it causes or is likely to cause substantial injury to consumers, the injury is not reasonably avoidable by consumers, and the injury is not outweighed by countervailing benefits to consumers or to competition.
Every state has UDAAP laws, which can vary widely. However, the lawyers at Mike Agruss Law understand these laws and can use them to get compensation for deceptive practices, representing consumers throughout the country in cases of arbitration at no cost to them. The company will not only pay the consumer, but they will also pay my fees as well. The consumer will never pay me a cent.
If you’re dealing with an issue with LoanMart, you might try filing a complaint with the BBB or the customer service team with LoanMart. Unfortunately, these avenues won’t always lead to a successful resolution for you, the customer. Instead, you may want to consider an experienced arbitration lawyer to take on your case.
Arbitration is a very useful tool for resolving disputes, and Mike Agruss Law can help. With our expert guidance, we bring the big companies to the table and provide the support needed to get your bills corrected, credit reports fixed, improper fees refunded, and more. Let us pick up the sword for you; you have nothing to lose.
How Do I File a Complaint Against LoanMart?
We will use your state’s UDAAP law to file a complaint in Arbitration on your behalf at no cost to you. UDAAP laws include misrepresentation, deception, false advertising, or false promises. Under your state’s UDAAP law, you are likely entitled to money damages for your actual damages. Plus, the other side will pay our fees and costs. You will not pay us a penny. These laws emerged following the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that was enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. The ultimate goal with these laws is geared towards protecting consumers involved in financial transactions, educating consumers on their rights, and allowing them access to information and resources to best inform their decisions.

Loanmart harassing me for a 5000 dollar Loan . I\'ve paid over 5 grand already on it and they are claiming I owe over 6000 more dollars
Loanmart is saying I owe 7 grand on a 5000 dollar loan . They have been paid over 5 thousand dollars so how could I owe 7 thousand more dollars?
LoanMart repossessed my car 1 day ago due to late payments after 3 years and I believe they are over charging me and they are taking advantage about my situation.
I took out a loan with LoanMart in August, 2022. My goal was to start a business, but I could not get conventional financing thru a bank. This was the most ignorant thing I could have done. I failed at the business, my full time job hours were cut for almost a year. Now, I\'m about to lose my car to them. They modified my loan by cutting some of the interest rate, yet my payoff doesn\'t ever seem to come down. My question is, are they practicing rent-a-bank schemes in the State of Arkansas. I\'ve asked for copies of my loan agreements and I have asked what my interest rate is that I am being charged, but they will no longer respond to my requests. They called two to three times a day and emailed and texted about as much when they were trying to collect, but once I asked for the documents and interest rates, my loan specialist cut off communication. If I\'m going to lose my car, I want to lose it to a lender with fair practices, not a lender who loan launders and practices unfair lending that makes it virtually impossible to succeed. I thought Arkansas was stricter with their usury laws, so why is LoanMart and Capital Community Bank allowed to get away with it? I would greatly appreciate advice. I\'m not smart enough to fight them I\'m afraid. It seems they have all the loopholes figured out to do what they\'re doing. I borrowed the money and I have an obligation to pay it back. But with legal interest rates and installments I can afford.

Illegal possession of my car (2004 Toyota Highlander) by LoanMart .
Long story, short: I took out a lien on my car through LoanMart in May 2021. It was a $2000- car loan. I’ve paid them back in full plus around $1,000 in interest. The monthly payments were getting too high and I told them I would surrender my vehicle. Instead, they wrote up a new agreement for a lower monthly amount. I’ve been paying them yet they keep telling me I owe them more. I have proof of payment and copies of the new loan agreement. I’m not sure what to do at this point- they believe I still owe them, even if they take my car.

We got tricked into doing a 2500.00 title loan with LoanMart (8/2019) that ended us costing us over 16k. We feel this is not right. Our contract should have been fixed to reflect the new law caps in 2020 but instead were forced to pay them 16k in interest in addition to the amount borrowed.

My car has been taken twice now after paying thousands of dollars to them when I didn’t even borrow that much. They want me to sign a new contract to pay thousands more and I can never get ahead. The promises they made and assured me they have lied about them all! They want me to pay more money when I’ve paid more than the loan twice! More than what my car is worth! They are rude and unfair and it needs to STOP! How are they able to get away with this?

In January of 2019, I had a hardship and needed money. I went to loanmart and got a title loan on my 2005 Chevy Silverado Truck in the amount of $3094.00. On this loan I made 22 monthly payments of $335. 88. ($7894.00 total) I was then impacted by Covid-19 and was off of work. I contacted loan mart to see what my options were and I was told that there was not a program in place . I was instructed to continue to make payments. After missing a payment, loanmart repossessed my truck and sold it at auction for $2500.00. Now I was notified in December 2022, that loanmart has reported to the credit bureaus that I owe them an additional $ 4144.26. To date I have paid loanmart $ 10,394.00 in total. Please help, thanks in advance,
