Question
I live in Florida and got into a bind and took out an online payday loan; loan was to be paid over a period of time on payday.  I have recently had to have emergency surgery and out of work for 12 weeks receiving no paycheck.  
I contact the online payday loan company to see if I could work out an arrangement since I am not working. They refused and stated I was bound by loan terms and agreement.
I spoke to my bank, who suggested sending them a ACH revocation letter, and they advised me that the loan my be illegal since they are not licensed in the state of Florida. I have made enough payments to pay off the principle amount borrowed, but because of the extrememly high interest rate the current balance is still more than I borrowed.
What are my rights legally? How do I handle this loan? Where do I go for rules and regulations in Florida
