Federal regulators take action against Kansas City payday lender Hydra Group

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said the payday lender used phony documents to claim that a person had applied for a loan. It then deposited unauthorized funds in the person’s bank account and began withdrawing unauthorized fees. A loan would typically be $200 to $300, with $60 to $90 in fees withdrawn every two weeks.
