    Going to be funny as hell when all those people who willingly took loans they knew they couldn't afford and then suing the loan companies for compo for lending them the money find they need money quick and there's no more payday lenders as they've all gone bust. They'll be forced to do what they should have done in the first place and go without the shiny thing.
    Who am I kidding? They'll still buy the shiny with the money they should have spent on the weekly shopping and leccy bills but then they'll abuse the food bank system so they can still eat.

    Good night. Good bye Sunny. 
    Thank you for seeing me and the feedback from my interview last Summer.
    Your letter back then was right then about the security, I'm sorry to see it go this way today.
    The best organisations go under and re-appear.

    That's a bit harsh. The collapse of these payday lenders will just drive people into the arms of illegal loan sharks. It is surprising, though, that the likes of Sunny cannot make a profit even when charging such outrageous interest.

    There was a newspaper story a few years ago about someone in Stockport who was convicted for being a loan shark. The irony of the story was that at 100% interest his interest rates were far lower than the interest rates of the payday loan companies. Had he not got all punchy about collecting late or non payments he'd have been lauded as a local hero especially as Morses Club which used to be known as Shopacheck and used lots by people in that area are charging 466.37% APR on their doorstep loans.

    Nobody is driving people anywhere.  Once mainstream lenders won't look at you, that should be the wake up call saying that further borrowing is not affordable, that you need to stop and address your financial situation by other means.

    Not surprising at all.  The interest rate reflects the risk.  Tighter regulation and miss-selling claims have proved to be the final nail in the coffin.  Just my personal opinion but, on the whole, we are better off without these players in the market.  If access to borrowing stops at an earlier point on the slippery slope then people have less of hole to dig themselves out of when the light bulb moment actually hits them.
