If you opt for it, you have no way to complain about the high interest rates. And if your agreement is not in writing or there is no legal agreement, you can still face hidden charges.

At first, you might consider paying a small amount every day. But if the amount is exaggerated it will not benefit you financially especially once you are in debt.
