Big Picture Loans (formerly known as Castle Payday) is a direct lender, specializing in installment, or personal, loans. Their goal is to help borrowers receive short-term loans easily, without worry about hidden fees and regulations: they understand that when financial strain hits, people at times need to borrow money, and they are prepared to provide the short-term loans individuals need. Big Picture Loans is one of several loan companies operated by the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, a federally-recognized American Indian Tribe. As such, BPL claims Tribal sovereign immunity from lawsuits, but consumers can still report them to the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (see below).

Important: In 2014, a US District Judge ruled that the FTC has authority to regulate certain arms of Indian Tribes, including payday loan companies operating under Tribal Law. If you feel that you have fallen victim to a predatory lender, even one claiming Indian tribal affiliation, we advise you file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
