HIGH COST CREDIT DISCLOSURE:
MOBILOANS CREDIT IS AN EXPENSIVE FORM OF CREDIT. MOBILOANS CREDIT IS DESIGNED TO HELP
CUSTOMERS MEET THEIR SHORT-TERM BORROWING NEEDS. THIS
SERVICE IS NOT INTENDED TO PROVIDE A SOLUTION FOR LONGER-TERM
CREDIT OR OTHER FINANCIAL NEEDS. ALTERNATIVE FORMS OF CREDIT
MAY BE LESS EXPENSIVE AND MORE SUITABLE FOR YOUR FINANCIAL NEEDS.
How we will calculate your balance:
To calculate the total balance of your Account,
at the beginning of each Billing Cycle we subtract all payments and credits made to
your Account. Then we will add to your existing unpaid balance the applicable
Fixed Finance Charge, the amount of any Mobiloans Cash draws made since your last
Periodic Statement, and any applicable Cash Advance Fees for draws of
Mobiloans Cash advanced during that Billing Cycle. Fixed Finance Charges are imposed
based on the outstanding principal balance of Mobiloans Cash as of the end of the
applicable Billing Cycle, excluding the amount of new Mobiloans Cash advances made
during the Billing Cycle.

“Periodic Statement” means the written statement issued for each Billing Cycle that describes, among other things, Mobiloans Cash transactions, accrued Cash Advance Fees and Fixed Finance Charges, payments made, other credits, balances that are past due, your previous balance, your new balance and your payment Due Date for that Billing Cycle.

You may experience a delay between the date of your payment

we verify that sufficient funds are available and/or we receive
credit for any payments drawn on another depository institution. This
action will not result in more cost to you, but it may delay the
availability and/or amount of your future Mobiloans Cash.
If you fail to pay the Minimum Payment Amount on or before the applicable Due Date,
an AutoPay payment will automatically be deducted by us from your

VIII. Payment Options
Payments in Full and Partial
You may pay your outstanding balance in full
at any time. We also accept partial payments as further
described in this Section VIII.
AutoPay: AutoPay is the automatic payment of the Minimum
Payment Amount specified in the applicable Periodic
Statement. If you elect to make AutoPay payments
via ACH debit, we process an ACH payment from your
Demand Deposit Account for the amount of each AutoPay
payment so that such payment is received on the applicable
Due Date. You do not need to agree to AutoPay as a condition
to opening or using your Mobiloans Credit Account.
If you have enrolled in the AutoPay feature, the payment
of the Minimum Payment Amount will be made from your
Demand Deposit Account unless you have otherwise paid
the Minimum Payment Amount by other means by 4:00 p.m.
Central Time on the Business Day prior to the applicable
Due Date. If you are an AutoPay customer and you remit a
payment, whether by mail or electronically, that is
received and processed before the AutoPay processing
date and that results in the payment in full of the
Minimum Payment Amount set forth in the applicable
Periodic Statement, then we will not process an AutoPay
payment for that Periodic Statement. See Section XXI
for more details.
Borrower-Scheduled Electronic Payments: You may schedule
an electronic payment at any time up to the full amount
of the outstanding balance of your Mobiloans Credit Account
prior to the applicable Due Date. You may schedule these
payments online at https://www.mobiloans.com, by calling
Customer Support at 877-836-1518 or by mail. In order
for an electronic payment to be received on your payment
Due Date, we must receive your scheduled payment request
by 4:00 p.m. Central Time on the Business Day prior to
the applicable Due Date. Depending on the amount and
timing of the early or partial payment, such payments
may not reduce the Cash Advance Fees or Fixed Finance
Charges that may accrue. See Section VI and Section VII above.
Borrower-Scheduled Debit Payments: Mobiloans may work with a third-party to enable you
to schedule a payment using a debit card to pay up to the full amount of the outstanding balance (or any portion thereof)
of your Mobiloans Credit Account at any time up to 4:00 p.m.
Central Time on the Business Day prior to the applicable
Due Date. If applicable, you may schedule these payments by calling Customer Support
at 877-836-1518. If you provide a debit card number to Mobiloans,
such debit card will not be used for any payment unless
you schedule a payment. Please note that Mobiloans relies on third parties to provide this service
and therefore reserves the right to terminate or suspend this service at any time.
If you elect to pay your Mobiloans Credit Account
via AutoPay or by mail, you can make an additional payment
at any time using your debit card; however, providing a
debit card to your Mobiloans Credit Account will not remove
you from AutoPay or otherwise change your payment obligations.
In order for a debit card payment to be received on your payment
Due Date, we must receive your scheduled payment request by 4:00 p.m.
Central Time on the Business Day prior to the applicable Due Date.
Depending on the amount and timing of the early or partial payment,
such payments may not reduce the Cash Advance Fees or Fixed Finance
Charges that may accrue.
Payments by Mail: Extension of Mobiloans Credit is not
conditioned on your repayment by electronic means of the
amounts you owe. You may make payments by mail,
using personal check, certified check or money order payable
to “MobiLoans, LLC”, and any such payment must be received
at our payment address, P.O. Box 42917, Philadelphia, PA 19101, by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the applicable payment
Due Date. To send your check via overnight mail or courier
service, please send to MobiLoans, LLC c/o MetaSource,
1900 Frost Road, Suite 100, Bristol, Pennsylvania 19007
in time for Mobiloans to receive your payment prior to
5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on your Due Date. If you are an
AutoPay customer and you remit a payment by mail, your AutoPay
payment for the current Billing Cycle will still process unless
your mailed payment is received and processed by 4:00 p.m.
Central Time on the Business Day prior to the applicable
Due Date and results in the payment in full of the Minimum
Payment Amount set forth in the applicable Periodic Statement.
If you remit payment by mail and such payment is received
on a non-Business Day, your payment will be posted to your
account on the day it is received.
Check Conversion Notification: When you provide a personal check
as payment, you agree we can either use information from your
check to make a one-time electronic withdrawal from your
Bank Account or to process the payment as a check transaction.
When we use information from your personal check to make a
withdrawal from your Bank Account, funds may be withdrawn
from your Bank Account as soon as the same day we receive
your payment and you will not receive your check back from
your financial institution. For questions, please call
Customer Support at 877-836-1518.
Required Paydown to Zero Dollars ($0) after Thirty (30) Months with an Outstanding
Principal Balance of Mobiloans Cash:
As described in Section IV, if you have had an outstanding
principal balance of Mobiloans Cash on your Mobiloans Credit Account for at least thirty (30) consecutive months,
then your ability to initiate additional draws of Mobiloans Cash will be restricted until such time as you pay
down the balance of your Mobiloans Credit Account to zero dollars ($0). Repayment of your outstanding balance to
zero dollars ($0) can be made by paying the Minimum Payment Amount over the maximum term for the outstanding
principal balance. Principal balances up to eight hundred dollars ($800.00) have a maximum bi-weekly
(two (2) payments per month) term of up to twenty-five (25) Billing Cycles; principal balances between
eight hundred one dollar ($801.00)
and one thousand one hundred ninety-nine dollars ($1,100.00) have a maximum
bi-weekly term of thirty-eight (38) Billing Cycles; principal balances between one thousand one hundred and one
($1,101.00) and one thousand nine hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($1,999.99) have a maximum
bi-weekly term of fifty (50) Billing Cycles; and principal balances between two thousand dollars ($2,000.00) and
two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500.00) have a maximum bi-weekly term
of sixty (60) Billing Cycles. Using your line of credit multiple times before it is paid down to $0 may mean that
you maintain an outstanding balance for more than thirty (30) consecutive months. You can pay off the
outstanding balance in full, or over a shorter time frame, by scheduling additional electronic payments, sending
additional payments by mail, paying more than the Minimum
Payment Amount or just remitting a payment in full. Once you have paid in full the outstanding balance of your
Account, your ability to make draws of Mobiloans Cash up to your Credit Limit will be reinstated. Depending on
method by which you make the final payment that brings your Account balance to zero dollars ($0), it may take up
to seven (7) Business Days to process the payment and reinstate your ability to make draws of Mobiloans Cash.
Payment Extensions: You may extend or “push” a payment to a later date as is described herein. The maximum payment date that a payment may be extended will be the next scheduled payment date. If you choose to extend the payment to the maximum payment date, you will have two payments processed on that date (the extended payment and the current payment due). You may not extend two payments in a row. A payment that has been extended cannot be delayed a second time if the maximum number of days allowed was granted the first time.
Your ability to utilize this payment extension option is
limited to a maximum of ninety-nine (99) times throughout the life of your account.
IX. Application of Payments
All payments received (whether electronically or
otherwise) will be applied first to any accrued and unpaid Cash Advance
Fees and Fixed Finance Charges, and then to the outstanding principal
balance of your Mobiloans Credit Account.
X. Balance Computation Method
We calculate your balance as shown under
“How we will calculate your balance” above.
XI. Servicing Your Account
In connection with the servicing of your Mobiloans Credit Account, you hereby authorize us to contact you, including through the use of an autodialer, text messaging (if you have opted-in to text messaging in your Application), or prerecorded message, at any phone number you have provided to us in your Application or otherwise, including mobile phone numbers, and at any address and email address we have for you in our records or from other public and nonpublic databases we may lawfully access. Where allowed by law, we also may contact other individuals who may be able to provide updated employment, location, and contact information for you.
Events of Default: We may declare
you to be in default of this Agreement at any time if: (a)
you fail to comply with the terms of this Agreement,
including your repayment obligations with respect to
borrowings under your Mobiloans Credit Account; (b)
we discover that any information you have provided to
us is false or misleading in any material respect; (c)
you have exceeded the limitations regarding the usage
of your Mobiloans Credit Account as set forth in this
Agreement; or (d) you have not provided us with
information we may request from time to time to satisfy
our obligations to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act
or other statutes or regulations that apply to us.
Consequences of Default:
If an event of default has occurred, we may, at our option,
do any one or more of the following things: (a) require you
to immediately pay us everything you owe us on your Mobiloans
Credit Account, including, without limitation, all outstanding
Mobiloans Cash and accrued Cash Advance Fees and Fixed Finance
Charges; (b) withdraw money from your Demand Deposit Account
that was not available when we tried to withdraw it at an earlier
time, if you have authorized electronic payments; (c) we may
suspend or terminate your right to access your Mobiloans Credit
Account and to receive draws of Mobiloans Cash; and (d) pursue all
legally available means under Tribal Law and applicable federal law
to collect what you owe us.
Except as expressly prohibited by Tribal Law and applicable federal law,
by agreeing to these
Terms and Conditions you waive notice of default, dishonor, demand
for payment, protest, presentment, and any other notices. In the event
we declare all amounts owed on your Mobiloans Credit Account immediately
due because you did not pay us, then, if you have authorized electronic
payments, you further authorize us and our agents and representatives
to withdraw money from your Demand Deposit Account in the full amount due.
By choosing to exercise any one or more of these remedies, we do not give
up our right to use another way to collect the money you owe us later.
We may decide not to use any of the ways described above to be paid back
the money that you owe us. If so, we do not give up our right to consider
what you said you would do to make payments and, if you fail to make
those payment(s), we will consider you to be in default.
XIII. Periodic Statements
Not less than once each Billing Cycle during which there is (i) one or more Mobiloans
Cash transactions, (ii) a payment is received, or (iii) an outstanding balance owing on
your Mobiloans Credit Account, we will make available to you electronically, or if you
specifically request, by mail, a Periodic Statement reflecting, among other things,
Mobiloans Cash transactions, accrued Cash Advance Fees and Fixed Finance Charges,
payments made, other credits, balances that are past due, your previous balance, and
your new balance. In addition, we will provide you from time to time with any other
disclosures or information required by this Agreement, Tribal Law, and applicable
Your Periodic Statements will be generated fourteen
(14) days prior to the applicable Due Date for such
Billing Cycle. A notification will be emailed to the
email account you have on file in your Account, and
your statement will be available electronically at
https://www.mobiloans.com. You may choose not to receive
your statements electronically. If you choose to receive
paper statements, please notify us by writing to Mobiloans

What Will Happen After We Receive Your Correspondence
When we receive your correspondence, we must do two things:
- Within thirty (30) days of receiving your correspondence, we must tell you that we received your correspondence. We will also tell you if we have already corrected the error.
- Within ninety (90) days of receiving your correspondence, we must either correct the error or explain to you why we believe the Periodic Statement is correct.
While we investigate whether or not there has been an error:
- We cannot try to collect the amount in question, or report you as delinquent on that amount.
- The charge in question may remain on your Periodic Statement, and we may continue to charge Finance Charges on that amount in accordance with this Agreement.
- While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of the outstanding balance of your Account.
- We can apply any unpaid amount against your Credit Limit.
After we finish our investigation, one of two things will happen:
- If we made a mistake: You will not have to pay the amount in question or any interest or other fees related to that amount.
- If we do not believe there was a mistake: You will have to pay the amount in question, along with applicable Finance Charges on that amount in accordance with this Agreement. We will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date payment is due. We may then report you as delinquent if you do not pay the amount we think you owe.
If you receive our explanation but still believe your Periodic Statement
is wrong, you must write to us within ten (10) days telling us that you still
refuse to pay. If you do so, we cannot report you as delinquent without
also reporting that you are questioning your Periodic Statement.
We must tell you the name of anyone to whom we reported you as
delinquent, and we must let those organizations know when the
matter has been settled between us.
If we do not follow all of the rules above, you do not have to
pay the first fifty dollars ($50) of the amount you question even if your
Periodic Statement is correct.

AGREEMENT OR RELATED TO YOUR MOBILOANS CREDIT ACCOUNT SHALL NONETHELESS BE
GOVERNED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE TUNICA-BILOXI TRIBE OF LOUISIANA AND APPLICABLE FEDERAL LAW AND
MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN THE TRIBAL COURT SYSTEM, TO WHOSE JURISDICTION YOU

WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
In this Waiver of Jury Trial and Arbitration Agreement (this “Arbitration Agreement”), “Tribe” or “Tribal” refers to the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana, a sovereign nation located within the United States of America, and “Tribal Law” means any law or regulation duly enacted by the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana.
PLEASE READ THIS WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL
AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
Unless you exercise your right to opt-out of arbitration
in the manner described above, any dispute related to this Agreement
will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right
to go to court, including the right to have a jury, to engage in
discovery (except as may be provided in the arbitration rules), and to
participate in a class action or similar proceeding. In arbitration,
a dispute is resolved by an arbitrator instead of a judge or jury.
Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than court procedures.
Any arbitration will be limited to addressing your dispute individually and will
not be part of a class-wide or consolidated arbitration proceeding.
Agreement to Arbitrate.
You agree that any Dispute (defined below) will be resolved by arbitration
in accordance with Tribal Law and applicable federal law.
Arbitration is a means of having an independent third party
resolve a Dispute. A “Dispute” is any controversy or claim related
in any way to your Mobiloans Credit Account or your application for
a Mobiloans Credit Account, involving you and Lender,
its marketing agent, collection agent, any subsequent
holder of your Mobiloans Credit Account, or any of their respective agents,
affiliates, assigns, employees, officers, managers, members
or shareholders (each considered a “Holder” for purposes of
this Agreement). The term Dispute is to be given its broadest
possible meaning and includes, without limitation, all claims
or demands (whether past, present, or future, including events
that occurred prior to the opening of your Account), based on
any legal or equitable theory (tort, contract, or otherwise),
and regardless of the type of relief sought
(i.e., money, injunctive relief, or declaratory relief).
A Dispute includes, by way of example and without limitation,
any claim arising from, related to or based upon marketing or
solicitations to obtain the Mobiloans Credit Account and the
handling or servicing of your Account whether such Dispute
is based on a Tribal, federal or state constitution, statute,
ordinance, regulation, or common law, and including any issue
concerning the validity, enforceability, or scope of this
Account or the Arbitration Agreement.
You acknowledge and agree that by entering into this Arbitration Agreement:
YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A
TRIAL BY JURY TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ALLEGED AGAINST US OR RELATED
YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A
COURT RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ALLEGED AGAINST US OR ANY HOLDER;
YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO SERVE AS
A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER
REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, AND/OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A
CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED
Choice of Arbitrator.
Any party to a Dispute, including a Holder, may send the other
party written notice by certified mail return receipt requested at the
address appearing at the top of the Agreement of their intent to arbitrate
and setting forth the subject of the dispute along with the relief requested,
even if a lawsuit has been filed. Regardless of who demands arbitration,
you shall have the right to select any of the following arbitration
organizations to administer the arbitration: the American Arbitration
https://www.adr.org; JAMS (1-800-352-5267)
https://www.jamsadr.com; or an arbitration organization agreed upon by you and the other
parties to the Dispute. The chosen arbitrator will utilize the
rules and procedures applicable to consumer disputes of the chosen
arbitration organization, but only to the extent that those rules
and procedures are consistent with the terms of this Agreement, Tribal
Law and applicable federal law. The party receiving notice of
Arbitration will respond in writing by certified mail return receipt
requested within twenty (20) days. You understand that if you demand
Arbitration, you must inform us of your demand and of the arbitration
organization you have selected. You also understand that if you fail
to notify us, then we have the right to select the arbitration organization
in accordance with Tribal Law or applicable federal law. Any arbitration
under this Agreement may be conducted either on Tribal land or within
thirty miles of your residence, at your choice, provided that this
accommodation for you shall not be construed in any way (a) as a
relinquishment or waiver of the Tribe’s sovereign status or immunity,
or (b) to allow for the application of any law other than Tribal Law
or applicable federal law.
Cost of Arbitration.
We will pay the filing fee and any costs or fees charged by the
arbitrator regardless of which party initiates the arbitration.
Except where otherwise provided by Tribal Law or applicable federal
law, each party will be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees
and other expenses. Unless prohibited by Tribal Law or applicable
federal law, the arbitrator may award fees, costs, and reasonable
attorneys’ fees to the party who substantially prevails in the arbitration.
Waiver of Jury Trial and Waiver of Ability to Participate in a Class Action.
YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A
JURY TRIAL, TO HAVE A COURT DECIDE YOUR DISPUTE, AND YOU
ARE WAIVING YOUR ABILITY TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE,
AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS
ACTION LAWSUIT, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY
FOR OTHERS IN THE ARBITRATION, AND TO CERTAIN DISCOVERY
AND OTHER PROCEDURES THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN A LAWSUIT.
The arbitrator has the ability to award all remedies available
under Tribal Law and applicable federal law,
whether at law or in equity, to the
prevailing party, except that the parties agree that the arbitrator
has no authority to conduct class-wide proceedings and will be
restricted to resolving the individual Disputes between the parties.
The validity, effect, and enforceability of this waiver of class
action lawsuit and class-wide arbitration is to be determined by the arbitrator.
If the arbitrator fails or refuses to enforce the waiver of class-wide
arbitration, the parties agree that the Dispute will proceed in Tribal
court and will be decided by a Tribal court judge, sitting without a jury,
under applicable court rules and procedures and may be enforced by such
court through any measures or reciprocity provisions available.
As an integral component of accepting this Agreement, you consent
to the jurisdiction of the Tribal courts for purposes of this Agreement.
The arbitrator will apply the terms of this Agreement,
including the Arbitration Agreement, Tribal Law, and federal law as appropriate.
The arbitrator may decide, with or without a hearing, any motion that is
substantially similar to a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim or a
motion for summary judgment. If allowed by Tribal or federal statute or
applicable law, the arbitrator may award statutory damages and/or reasonable
attorneys’ fees and expenses. The arbitrator will make written findings and
the arbitrator’s award may be filed with the Tribal court. The arbitration
award will be supported by substantial evidence and must be consistent with
this Agreement and applicable law or may be set aside by the Tribal court
upon judicial review.
This Arbitration Agreement will survive: (i) termination or changes in this Agreement,
the Account, or the relationship between us concerning the Account; (ii) the bankruptcy
of any party; and (iii) any transfer, sale or assignment of my Account, or any amounts
owed on my account, to any other person or entity. This Arbitration Agreement benefits
and is binding upon you, your respective heirs, successors and assigns. It also benefits
and is binding upon us, our successors and assigns, and related third parties.
The Arbitration Agreement continues in full force and effect, even if your
obligations have been paid or discharged through bankruptcy. The Arbitration
Agreement survives any termination, amendment, expiration, or performance of any
transaction between you and us and continues in full force and effect unless you
and we otherwise agree in writing. If any of this Arbitration Agreement is held
invalid, the remainder shall remain in effect.
XIX. Governing Law
This Agreement and the Arbitration Agreement are governed by the
laws of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana, the Indian Commerce Clause
of the United States Constitution, the Federal Arbitration
