    Default Welcome Finance / Barclays Assist

    Hi all,
    I've been showing a friend all the help I've been given over the years on here and forgot I had a HFC Loan
    - so I'm firing off the SARicon to HSBC today..

    It kind of jogged my memory about another loan I had.
    This was something called a Barclays Assist loan and was a loan through Welcome Finance/Barclays.

    I can not find any paperwork and I don't know whom I should contact seeing as WF are no more.
    Any suggestions on contact details or anyone come across the Barclays Assist before?

    Just found a very old Credit report from 2009 - "BARCLAYS ASSIST PROGRESSIVE FINANCIAL SERVICES LTD, MERE WAY, RUDDINGTON FIELDS
    BUSINESS PARK, RUDDINGTON, NOTTINGHAM, NG11 6NZ"
    Taken out 07/10/2003 , Company name: BARCLAYS ASSIST --- 129 @24mths

    I cant see this existing anymore at the address above - so unsure as where to turn to..

    Excellent.
    I came across a site saying the WF/progressive had gone into administration. FSCS org or something...
    Do you know if it is the same.address and is it WF or Progressive.
    Sorry for the questions, I'm.unclear with the WF/PFS/Cattel - just know they went by loads of different names

    good so that will be welcome and you'd get the PPIicon back directly from then without going through the FSCS as it was too early for them.

    Will get the SARicon off first thing.

    I do remember that when I tried to get credit report updated as they hadn't updated it despite me paying off the loan,
    they couldn't find any information such as the credit
    as they didn't know who was responsible for the assist loan
    (welcome/progressive or Barclays)

    Update.
    received a lettericon today stating despite our best efforts we have been unable to locate an account relating to your details.
    If you have a copy of the credit agreement please let us know and we will look into it further.


    I guess I'm out of luck on this one, as I know it was WF who sold it, as I had to contact them to get the entry removed from the credit report.

    Infact I remember that Howard Cohen took ownership of the account at one stage as WF said I had not paid, yet provided all proofs to Howard Cohen, then account was closed.

    Is Howard Cohen still trading - as I could get the details from them..

    Sorry DX slightly confused.
    If Howard Cohen are no more/taken over by Lowell then wouldn't it be Lowell to contact? If so I had a SARicon a last year with Lowell a d there was no mention of anything to do with WF or Cohen

    If it is still Cohen I need to SAR is it still the Leeds address at Hanover Walk?

    cohen were always lowells, they are now Lowell solicitors
    surprised the SARicon didn't reveal anything then.
