Get My Refund

Cigno Pay Day Loans

In April 2020, Slater & Gordon Lawyers announced that they are investigating a class action against Cigno Loans. It was revealed that the payday lenders relied on predatory loan practices and charged exorbitant fees and interests. These payday loans might start off small, but they include many fees, charges, and high interest rates, which made them incredibly difficult to repay. In some cases, the interest bills were more than 990%. Worst of all, these loans targeted the most vulnerable groups in our society – those with the least ability to protect themselves against massive interest charges. It’s also incredibly important to point out that the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has banned these unethical lending practices and loan products in 2019. Furthermore, the Federal Court has dismissed Cigno’s application to overturn the financial regulator’s ban. This decision gives ASIC the impetus and confidence to use its power against products such as pay day loans.

Who Is Eligible for the Refund?

The class action against Cigno Pay Day Loans is still under investigation by Slater and Gordon Lawyers and has not yet been filed. The Get My Refund team is monitoring developments carefully. When the law firm in charge of the class action makes the allegation official, we’ll update the eligibility requirements accordingly. If you have ever entered into a loan with Cigno Loans, you might be eligible for a refund in the future. Contact us now and we can let you know when the opportunity arrives. Get My Refund will continue to apply the knowledge and expertise to protect our clients and fight for their refunds.
Get My Refund will fight for every cent you're owed.

We specialise in reclaiming money for consumers by investigating your individual situation to get back what you are owed if you were mis-sold, even if you loan is still current or has been paid out already.

Who is Eligible for the Refund?

The opt-out model applies to class actions in Australia. Under the precedence, all persons affected automatically become members of the relevant class action. Members will be legally bound by the settlement or court’s decision unless they had previously opted out of the proceedings. Group members will not have the final say on settlement offers, settlement sum amounts or how the payout is apportioned between them and by that stage it is too late to opt out, and have waived the right to take it individually to obtain more.

Important note:

If you do not opt out, you will probably still need to take certain further steps before distribution occurs to receive your share of any payout, this is not automatic. Members who do not receive the opt out notice have no idea the class action exists, they do not know how to register and they can often miss out entirely, and this is through no fault of their own.

The terms for every class action are all available online. We do not offer legal advice and we suggest you read what the actual group member MAY or MAY NOT receive, or obtain legal advice before making these decisions.

How do you opt out?

If you opt-out by the deadline, or instruct us to opt-out on your behalf, you have removed yourself from this class action and will be free to pursue a refund to achieve a better outcome.

If you had opted out, you’ve removed yourself from this class action. As a result, the outcome of the case will not affect you. You will be free to file your own claim separately and therefore entitled to more compensation.

A class action is a lawsuit brought by a group of claimants who suffered wrongdoings in the hands of the defendant. This type of lawsuit is also known as multi-district litigation or mass tort litigation.

Since the compensation for individual injuries may pale in comparison to the cost of a lawsuit, banding a group of claimants together tips the scale in the other direction, making it a suit worth filing.

Besides the claimant attorneys, filing a lawsuit as a group allows consolidation of witnesses, evidence, and other aspects of litigation for enhanced efficiency.

If you do not opt out in time, you will be bound by the outcome even if you are not happy with the amount you actually receive after the lawyers take their share. Legal proceedings are very expensive and by lining the pockets of lawyers you may be disappointed what ends up in yours.

Our client data confirms that our clients are better off opting out and instructing us to pursue a refund on their behalf than what they would have received if they did no opt out, and this is even after our fee is paid.

We work on behalf of you as an individual on all insurances (not just the class action ones) and work towards obtaining the maximum refund you are entitled to! Class actions can take years to be approved and to go through court process, whilst our refund claims can be completed in a matter of weeks!

This in recent times has worked out to be more than 60% more refund potential in your pocket even after our fees!

Once opted out your refund claim can be completed in less than 60 days, dependent on the complexity of your individual case.
