What's next for QuickQuid borrowers?

It's owned by the US-based company Enova which gave "regulatory uncertainty" as the reason for departure.

Guest: Martin Lewis, founder of Money Saving Expert. Money Box listener Elaine reveals how her 18-year-old son was bullied into becoming a money mule, which saw him laundering cash from criminal activities through his personal bank account. Guest: Detective Sargeant Marc Cananur from the Kent Police Economic Crime Unit. An expensive plumber's bill - but not the sort you might be thinking of.
