If you want to get a refund for “unaffordable” payday loans, the first step is to complain to the lender. Often it’s simple as the lender has a Complaints section on their website, but some have been taken over or the website isn’t there anymore, so here is a list.
For full details on how to complain, including template letters, see:

Firms in administration
The following firms are currently in administration – these means they have gone bust!
- Toothfairy; Cash Genie; CFO; Microlend.
If you are just starting a claim against any of these you need to be aware that there may be no money to pay any redress. If you have a small claim you may decide it’s not worth bothering with. If your claim is large, you should talk to the Financial Ombudsman to see what you should do, if any anything.
Anything missing or wrong?
If there is a missing lender, or you think one of these addresses is wrong, please leave a Comment at the bottom of this article.
A good place to try to track down old lenders is the FCA Register, as this lists firms brand names as well as their company names and also sometimes shows details for firms that have ceased trading.
If you still aren’t having any luck, then try the Financial Ombudsman’s complaints line – they are very friendly!
What if the lender ignores your email?
If you don’t get some form of acknowledgement within a few days, I suggest sending another email asking them to confirm they have received your previous email. If you don’t get any reply within a week, I suggest phoning them or use a “Live chat” facility on their website.
