Dollars Direct is no longer doing business in Canada as of January 1, 2017. They actually stopped accepting new customers several months before this, but now they have completely wrapped up their business. Perhaps coincidentally, the Australian division of Dollars Direct also closed its doors on the same day.
Dollars Direct was the Canadian arm of Enova Holdings LLC which is in turn part of Cash America International Inc, which is a multinational financial company trading on the NYSE. Their market cap is approximately $1.09B USD. In other countries they operate as CashNetUSA (USA, payday loans), QuickQuid, DollarsDirect AU, Primary Innovations (USA, telephone microloans), and Pounds To Pocket (UK, instalment loans).
They charged the maximum allowed in every jurisdiction. They used to operate in British Columbia (23%), Alberta (23%) and Ontario (21%).
They can be reached by mail at their corporate office:
Toronto, ON M5E 1W7
hi i need to know who took over dollars direct , who to call ,
I don’t think anyone took them over, they are still owned by Enova but they are defunct.
I have an outstanding loan with them and was recently contacted by an agency saying they were collecting on behalf of dollars direct but the amount and the company didn’t match the listing on My credit karma Account. When I questioned this they said ur probably seeing our old company name ____. That name was also wrong. I don’t know if it’s a scam or just a mix up. I am interested in paying, but now I discover that contacting dollars direct may be difficult. Beware of this possible scam and if anyone finds a way to contact dollars direct plz let me know
I just got an email on behalf of this lender too, said my loan was taken out in 2011. Said I owe $1500 never ever did I take a loan from these people. It’s a scam.
