Promissory Note Forms

What Is A Promissory Note? - A promissory note is a signed document whereby a written promise to repay a loan or debt of stated amount to a specified person under the specific terms and conditions.

If you violate this usury laws, there would be a huge civil or criminal consequences out of that.
