We all know how the holiday season can stretch family budgets to the limit. Starting before Halloween, consumers are bombarded by commercials selling sparkling jewels, the latest high-tech craze or the newest must-have toy. It’s no wonder that more and more strapped-for-cash Texans may be tempted to turn to payday and auto title loans as …

Grand bargain or raw deal? Many elderly
