See an article on my website:

Basically in PA if the lender is not licensed, then it is limited to 6% interest. So you owe what you borrowed and 6% interest and no more. The payday lender is not allowed to collect the usurious rate of interest they are charging.

I would contact the PA attorney general's office for assistance.
