    Default Re: Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal

    Just for clarity, is the MMF default backdated to when CG added it or is it a brand new one with the default date of this year?

    Filing a second default is a big no no. One account, one default and it should have been placed within 6 - 8 months (at the very latest-usually 3 months) of the original date of the loan. This is done to protect the debtor as if a lender was allowed to file a further default, they could do it over and over again.

    The Cash Genie default was dated 30/06/14 (account start date 30/05/14 - completely wrong).

    The MMF default is dated 25/06/14 (account start date 30/05/14 - again, completely wrong).

    Idiots.

    No reply from the CRAicon re my dispute (they say it can take "up to" 28 days - they've had 41 so far) or from MMF re my complaint except another email on the 18th maintaining I have an outstanding balance of 60, failure to pay which within 7 days will result in them being "be left with no alternative but to refer your account to Moriarty Law LLP", whoever they are.

    I have just signed into my Noddle account to find that the dispute is marked as "completed - no changes made".

    "Unfortunately your dispute has been unsuccessful as the organisation has not agreed to make changes to your credit file. Please refer to the correspondence you will receive from our customer servicesicon Team for details"

    LIVID!!!

    Could anyone direct me to something in black and white clearly stating that in registering a default after the OC has already done so (and subsequently removed) the DCAicon is breaking the law, and which law/s? I'm at my wit's end.

    Call the FCA and discuss it with them.. they should be able to sort things out for you going forward. At least you will have registered a complaint against their atrocious behaviour.

    Thanks for that sillygirl1.

    Meanwhile, I submitted a "prove-it" demand to MMF. I received a reply today.

    "We write with regard to the above referenced account number and recent communication.

    Please find attached as requested:

    1. Copy agreement information.

    Please contact us within 14 days from the date of this communication to agree a payment plan which is both realistic and affordable to you. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can visit our website www.mmile.com where you can complete a financial assessment form and submit it to us with your payment proposal."

    The copy agreement info states, correctly, that I took out a loan on 23/12/13 for 200, to be repaid in two separate simultaneous payments, one of 60 interest, one of 200 principal, on 31/12/13. Except Cash Genie only took the interest, and rolled the loan over repeatedly of their own accord and without my knowledge, month after month.

    MMF have also supplied a "statement of account" for 04/05/15 to 04/05/16. This gives the date of the agreement as 30/05/14, amount of principal loan advanced 200, opening balance at start of statement period 60, closing balance at end of statement period 60.

    Can they not see what's wrong with this picture??

    Default Re: Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal

    Having gone through my bank statements I can also see that the loan arrived in my account on 27/12/13 (i.e. 4 days late) and the interest was taken from my account on 30/12/13 (i.e. 1 day early)......

    Default Re: Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal

    Quick update. I fired off a formal complaint to MMF on 15th November.

    "Dear Sirs,

    FORMAL COMPLAINT

    Your statement of account is incorrect. I repaid 260 to Cash Genie, which was the amount due to them under the original terms and conditions of the loan agreement.

    Cash Genie broke their own terms and conditions by:
    1)Releasing the loan on the 27/12/13 (i.e. 4 days late).
    2)Debiting my interest repayment on 30/12/13 (i.e. 1 day early).
    3)Rolling over the loan of their own accord, with neither my knowledge or consent. This is a blatant rip-off technique to attempt to defraud customers of additional interest repayments. It is also something for which Cash Genie are notorious, and one of the reasons which led to their liquidation and redress programme.

    Cash Genie also issued a default notice on 1/8/14 for 0.00, which is clearly nonsensical, and entered a default on my credit report. This gave an account start date of 30/5/14 (incorrect), a regular repayment of 140 (incorrect), a date of default of 30/6/14 (i.e. one month before the default notice, and one month after the incorrect account start date) and a default sum of 260 (nonsense). This default subsequently vanished.

    You have since added a default to my credit report with an account start date of 30/5/14 (incorrect again), a date of default of 25/6/16 (not only incorrect, but well outside of the 3-6 month period by which defaults should be placed). You are not the original creditor and therefore may not add or create a new default, only update an existing one. The existing Cash Genie default was removed. Your entry on my credit record is entirely incorrect, invalid, misleading, defamatory and unlawful. I must therefore demand its immediate removal from all credit referencing agencies, or will report you to the FCA, consider legal proceedings against your organisation and seek financial compensation.

    I also note your company has recently agreed a redress programme with the FCA.

    Yours faithfully,

    [me]"

    Automated reply:

    "Dear Sir / Madam

    We will provide you with a written acknowledgement within 5 working days of your email and look to address your concerns within the next 28 days.

    Quick update. Email from MMF on 22/11/16:

    "Dear Mr xxxxxxxx,

    With a PDFicon attached giving themselves 8 weeks to provide a final responseicon.

    Meanwhile, the texts and letters from Moriarty Law have continued, threatening the usual court action/CCJ/6 more years of credit report hell etc...

    Shouldn't Moriarty Law be drinking a nice big fresh cup of shut the **** up whilst this is the subject of a formal complaint?

    Hi
    I think it's safe to say that you can prove that CG messed up. Can you confirm whether the letter says 'letter before actionicon'.

    I feel an email or letter to Moriarty (nice name eh sherlock) instructing them to cease their actions as this matter is under dispute with MMF. Failure to do so will result in formal complaints to them and their regulatory body and to refer this matter back to their client.

    Default Re: Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal

    UPDATE:

    Amusing email from MMF today:

    "We have reviewed the content of your complaint and are unfortunately unable to comment on any of the service issues which relate to Cash Genie. Each of your concerns relate to actions which occurred prior to us purchasing the debt and would need to be addressed with Cash Genie.

    However, as Cash Genie have now entered into insolvent liquidation, we have taken the decision to write off the remaining balance and close your account. Any information which is shared on your credit file will also be removed."

    So, a result.

    However, this raises a couple of questions which have been at the back of mind for nearly a year:

    1)If a DCAicon is "unable to comment" on the conduct of an OC, or verify their information, how are they able to act on it?

    2)If an OC is in insolvent liquidation, why are alleged debtors being chased (rather than, say, creditors, for distribution of the insolvent company's assets)? All seems a bit arse about face to me...

    Perhaps I should follow up with a complaint regarding MMF's conduct to the fosicon anyway.

    Thanks for all the help - it has certainly kept me going!

    Default Re: Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal

    Well done. That is what we like to see.

    As the matter is now closed, there will be nothing to go to the fosicon about.

    When a DCAicon buy a debt, all they get is the basic details so when push comes to shove, they will be unlikely to substantiate what they are claiming.

    When a company becomes insolvent, the administrators have to maximise what income they can get and by selling the loan book to MMF, they got something back for the creditors. MMF take on all the risk and will succeed sometimes and in others will give up.

    Give them a month to clear your credit file and if they don't do as stated then you can complain.
