Actually, Google goes far beyond Payday Loan apps here. They're covering all sorts of harmful and deceptive, as well as usurious products....

We don't allow apps that expose users to deceptive or harmful financial products and services.

They're including "all-or-nothing" financial options, as well as cryptocurrency mining on "devices".
