It is easily done, your a bit short of cash and have other debts, so you decide the best option is to apply for a Satsuma Loans. There are so many about right now, you pick one, apply and hey presto, £100 is in your bank account 1hr later, problem solved. Not really.
If your at this stage you are probably already in debt
If you can’t pay Satsuma Loans then I would suggest the following
This company in particular, never gives up chasing you for the debt. Calling mobile, sending letters, contacting your work, their new tactic is tracing you on social media and messaging friends/family to embarrass you into paying. So beat them at their own game, I’ll share with you a company I used when in debt, that hates these companies as much as me, but more importantly can get rid of this debt for you before the end of the month.

If you are dealing with Satsuma Loans, you need to know that the law is reviewing them as you read this and they are sympathetic to people in debt using them and the outrageous apr they incur, as well as the tactics they use to chase people and hassle them.
Now to apply for a Satsuma Loans, you would have had to have provided your debit card details for them, so they can collect payments from you. So the first thing is to cancel it. They will ignore any letters/emails/calls from you saying you cant pay, as they have your details and using a pos machine, will debit your card anyway. So you think £20 is being debited and when you check your account online, you realise that the entire amount has gone, leaving you no money in your account. You cancel them by contacting the fraud team at your bank ,as only they can completely lock down your card (say it has been stolen and someone has your pin number). Now, they can no longer debit your account. Request a new card with new details, so you can access your cash, remember to reactivate any direct debits for essentials such as mobiles so they still work etc
Write to Satsuma Loans, saying that you have been selected for redundancy at work, as the company is failing and as a result, you wont be able to make the payment date and wish to go on reduced payments. They will write back and suggest a payment arrangement. You have a choice now, either to suggest any amount that you are happy to pay, or simply ignore them. They will try and call you and text you, one tactic is to call you at work, so first of all send them a letter saying they are in breach of the administration of Justice Act 1970, and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, that will put a stop to that.
Now send off to them a CCA request (consumer credit agreement) you would be surprised how many payday loan lenders do not actually have the correct authority, to actually operate as a lender. Make sure they send you the original document.
At this point, they will be sending texts and emails saying just pay off the loan,no charges or apr. At this point, write to them saying you are happy to pay off only 30% of the overall loan, as you are being taken to court for non payment of council tax and other essential debts. They know this means if it went to court a judge could decide you only pay back 70p a month if that is all you can afford.
