Class action lawsuits were filed on behalf of borrowers who took loans from The Cash Store or Instaloans in Ontario after September 1, 2011. The lawsuits said that The Cash Store and Instaloans payday loans had an unlawful structure in Ontario and that Borrowers were charged too much money for interest and fees, including too much money on credit cards, debit cards, insurance policies, bank accounts, and other items.

You paid too much!

The Court was asked to order the return of improper fees and excessive interest to borrowers. The Cash Store, Instaloans, and other Defendants together have agreed to pay over $10 million to resolve the litigation against them.
