Payday

Dirty Money #2 – Payday

This starts with the image of a guy having his cars towed away. He is upset, the government has intruded on his life and ruined it. He is bitter and angry.

What emerges from the documentary is the story of Scott Tucker, a racing car driver and business owner.

His business was payday lending and he made millions off small loans with undisclosed charges, inflated interest rates and incomprehensible rules.

It ends with him facing charges from the FTC and FBI, and ending in jail time.

The documentary avoids moralizing narration, the story is told by by the actors. From Scott and the prosecutors everyone gets their say and point of view across.
