We managed to purchase Easy Loans back in the summer of 2011 and it was a nice addition to our lending portfolio.
The site is reasonably successful and over the last 4 years we have received a few offers to sell the name and the site from investors. We don't intend to sell the domain anytime soon and we are more than happy to keep it ticking along while we build our network a bit larger.
One problem with the lending industry at the moment is the constant barrage of nonsense from the FCA in the form of regulation and requests. Sometimes they even tell us where to put our contact details because they feel our visitors are so stupid they can't click on the "contact us" page and find them that way. If we don't do it they threaten to take our license from us.
Those of you that know us know that we don't tend to take ultimatums all that well and often respond in colourful language of our own. At the moment we have told them that we are not willing to comply unless we know exactly which rule it is they are relying on to request suck compliance. Currently they have failed to explain themselves and things maybe going legal pretty quick.
