(Tulsa-AP) -- The Department of Consumer Credit says Oklahomans overcharged by small loan companies have been refunded about three (M) million dollars.
Don Hardin is a consumer credit administrator. Hardin says about 95 percent of the small loan companies that overcharged customers met a September 20th deadline.
The refund resulted from litigation that began after Attorney General Drew Edmondson issued a February 1997 opinion that small loan companies were refinancing loans at too high an interest rate.
Consumer credit commissioners approved a plan last month requiring small loan companies to repay 50 cents for every dollar they overcharged consumers between February 1997 and August 1997.
