Moreover, Western Sky, CashCall and the other respondents are permanently prohibited from engaging in any financial services related activities in Maryland that require licensing, including originating, brokering or servicing any mortgage, consumer or other loan involving Maryland consumers.

In one case, loan documents revealed an Annual Percentage Rate of more than 1,800%. he loans were made via the internet and through call centers located outside the state of Maryland. During 2010 and early 2011, the respondents originated more than 1,200 such loans to Maryland borrowers. As a result of the settlement agreement: More than 1,200 Maryland residents who have been victimized are eligible to receive restitution of more than $1.7 million, based upon prior payments. The $1.7 million fund will be administered by Dahl Administration under the oversight of Circuit Court for Baltimore City. Dahl will contact eligible borrowers within 90 days of the effective date of the settlement and will establish a website through which consumers can claim refunds of sums repaid in excess of 24% per year. The remaining balances on any loans by Western Sky, Great Sky, Payday Financial Red Stone, Red River Management Systems, Webb, or any other entity owned or operated by Webb, directly or indirectly, to a Maryland borrower are canceled, and all parties are prohibited from selling, assigning or collecting on any loans going forward made. More than $275,000 in remaining loan balances will be forgiven. The respondents will pay a fine of $80,200 to the Commissioner of Financial Regulation and pay specific restitution of approximately $20,000 to the 20 identified borrowers who previously filed complaints, related to this case, with the Commissioner.
