QuickQuid closes down
QuickQuid has been in the headlines lately after it was revealed the UK’s biggest payday loan provider was closing down. QuickQuid is owned by the US-based firm Enova who announced they were leaving the UK market as a result of ‘regulatory uncertainty’.
Facts like these are easy to overlook when you’re looking for a payday loan on bad credit. But there is no substitute for good research so whether you go with us or a competitor, be sure to read reviews, understand what loans are on offer and any other information.
What went wrong with QuickQuid?
QuickQuid is an example of how a little research can help you weed out providers that aren’t up to scratch. The UK’s Financial Ombudsman Service has received 3,165 cases against QuickQuid’s parent company CashEuroNet in the space of 6 months. The Financial Ombudsman has upheld 59% of the complaints against QuidQuid so far with a backlog of more to come.
QuickQuid’s demise isn’t surprising following the failure of Wonga last year, and Wageday Advance and the Money Shop ceasing trading. The impact of the regulation around loans, interest rates, and affordability checks has had a profound effect on the market. Large lenders who aren’t focussing on positive customer outcomes are being left in the dust, while smaller more personable lenders are filling the vacuum.
Complaints by customers have only fanned the flames and lead to the question; who can people turn to for fair, clear and trusted loan providers?
