The company had given loans to about 800,000 people but went into administration earlier this year.
In a case that mirrors the demise of Wonga, the company folded after being hit by a wave of compensation claims for mis-sold loans.
Customers are now receiving emails to explain how much they owe or are owed.
However, now the company is in administration, those who have paid off loans but are entitled to compensation have become unsecured creditors. They can only expect a fraction of the full compensation payout.

Ms Meng was detained at Vancouver International Airport in December while transferring to an onward flight to Mexico. Her case sparked a political furore in China, where she is widely seen as the victim of a political vendetta by the US.
The FT reports that the lawsuit was filed on Friday and distributed to journalists by Ms Meng’s lawyers on Sunday.
It alleges that Canadian officers held her on the pretext of making a routine border and immigration inspection. That allowed them to interrogate her, as well as search her luggage and electronic devices, without affording her the rights to a lawyer and other protections that come into play when a suspect is formally arrested.
The detention was “a deliberate and premeditated effort on the part of the defendant officers to obtain evidence and information from the plaintiff in a manner that they knew constituted serious violations of the plaintiff’s rights”, according to the suit, filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 2.0% in December 2018, down from 2.2% in November 2018.
The largest downward contributions to change in the 12-month rate came from falls in petrol prices and from air fares, where ticket prices rose between November and December 2018, but by less than a year ago.
Given this and the ongoing Brexit uncertainty there is no way that the Bank of England will raise rates.
