When a bank or other lender tries to trick a consumer into taking a loan with unfair or illegal rates or terms, that practice is often called "predatory lending" or "discriminatory lending." These loans come in many forms, including payday loans, credit cards or other forms of consumer debt, and overdraft loans, with excessively high interest rates. Often, lenders require borrowers to back these loans with collateral, including cars and homes; that way, when a borrower defaults on the loan, the lender can repossess or foreclose and selling the repossessed or foreclosed property for a profit. Various state and federal laws prohibit companies from engaging in these types of illegal activities. Predatory lenders generally try to target their conduct against the less-uneducated, as well as the elderly and racial minorities.
