    Tesla And The World's Greatest Con Man

    Everyone’s talking about the possibility that the world’s best-known electric car manufacturer, Tesla, could be going bust within the coming months.

    Football's going bust, not coming home

    One thing we are very good at is spotting when an industry is in trouble, and right now football, especially English football is going bust right before our very eyes. Almost without any attention from the mainstream media. On the face of it, English football looks in good shape, high wages, expensive stadiums, full stadiums…
    Quick Loans has completed the purchase of the Cheque Centre, with the aim of relaunching the brand, it was announced today.

It’s more fantasy regulation from people who have never been in business. You may have already heard about GDPR (General Data…

A recent survey conducted for Polls.co.uk shows that the charity sector now has a lower approval rating than short-term lenders. Including losing out in a direct head to head with the lending industry. In a poll that ran from March the 1st,…
    Sat with smirks on our faces we have been watching the Facebook privacy saga unfold here at Quick Loans. The hysteria of the media and Facebook users has been priceless, if not a little irritating. We are not for one minute saying that we find it funny that people have had their personal details passed…
    One of the most surprising things about this winter is the number of people who are applying for credit so that they can fix their cars due to damage from pot holes. As local Council’s struggle to fund road repairs, the public are forced to carry the can. Council’s are under pressure like never before,…
    About 6 months ago this site was laughed at when we said that lenders were on the verge of pulling out of the UK market if the short term credit cap was not lifted. In the last few days, one of the UK’s biggest short-term lenders has stopped lending. Seems that our sources were right…
