              It sounds like you're talking about a merchant loan - where you borrow against future credit card sales. Certainly not a hoax, but not necessarily one of the best ways to borrow money either (in my opinion).

                It sounds like your refering to a merchant cash advance. It is not another hoax. Basically, lets say you make $10,000 in credit card sales a month, this would qualify you for $12,500 advance. So you borrow the $12,500, and are given a 1.3 factor rate (ranges from 1.20 to 1.45). This means your overall pay back would be $16,250. You set up repayment for 9 months. $16,250 over 9 months is approximately $1,805.55, a month. $1,805.55 out of your original monthly sales of $10,000, comes out to about 18%. So your hold back percentage would be 18%. Generally, you will pay 18% of your daily credit card sales to pay off the advance. If you make $500 on one day; $90 would go towards your advance, $410 would go to you. If you make $1000 on another day; $180 would go towards the advacne, $820 would go to you. Basically if your sales go down to $5000 one month, you will only pay $900; if your sales go up to $20,000, you pay $3,600. Let me know if you have any further questions.
