This is where payday loans are particularly useful. They can provide people with no other or no better resources a way to handle the unexpected events. Get rid of payday loans and they are left more vulnerable because a useful option that could have let them deal with a situation is gone.

Also suggesting that the "rank by rate" approach of some MSE articles is a bit too simplistic. I know it is difficult to rank customer service.

I WAS OBTAINING PAYDAY LOANS AT 15! For me it really was like a drug! I am now in default with over 35+ different Payday Lenders and counting (As letters arrive!) and it’s been like this since i was 15 I ran away from home, had no money and a GPRS enabled phone found quickquid entered every detail correct bar my dob entered as 30/11/1980 and was approved despite being 15 borrowed from some other company to pay them back could have been cash genie not sure and the rest is history!. By far the best if you fell in financial crisis for me I believe is Quickquid as they freeze charges as soon as you default meaning the debt stays a relatively low amount Mine went to £490 after a £400 loan. One off the worse I have encounted was 247 Moneybox I think I owe them over £1500 for £300 loan and then they took £20 off for a chaps transfer! There’s a 0% interest offer for your first payday loan with instant loans direct for 8 days. The market is massive I am only 18 now and in over £35000 off debt thanks to payday loans, i know it’s my fault but I had nothing in the first place I was kid still !!!!!!! Every time I saw approved and the money got transferred i got excited! And now i can’t get any more! cant keep to my arrangements! Have 3 CCJS in a 1980 DOB and I was born 1992! and the worst bit about it I cannot get any help because I committed fraud without even knowing it! Cant go bankrupt, cant enter a debt management plan.
