  1. Hi, Just recieved a reply from Welcome Finance for the letter of complaint I sent requesting explanations for the letters that they sent with the SAR response which were not signed, had no date, no letterhead and had my partial and incorrect address. They have wrote that I requested "Information" for which I need to pay a £1.00 statutory fee (for a credit agreement and statement per account). Enclosed in the same envelope they another letter (signed by the same person but no name) saying that they were unable to verify my I.D for which they need proof (passport copy etc). It the same letter they state that as they were unable to confirm my identity they will not be treating my letter as formal complaint for the purposes of the FCA's rules. Now: Previously I had already paid the maximum statutory fee of £10.00 and they had already responded to the SAR i made with all the documents, logs etc they hold about me. In every letter I wrote to them I made sure that the same reference number they gave were on my letters so they can allocate and find my correspondence and files easily. Why are they asking for the fee again? Why do they need proof of I.D if they had previously provided everything? I never requested any documents from them but wanted a explanation as to why their letters where presented in this fashion and why it was incorrect etc, further mentioning that they had not followed the correct procedures to collect the debt, no debt collection letters were found in the SAR and no letters of court action was found for the CCJ they filed. Please guide me on how to proceed with this as this is getting on my nerves. They took almost 3 months to respond back just to say they need the fee and I.D????? Shall I just escalate the complaint to the Ombudsman, ICO, OFT etc? Please advise

    CIFAS Marker

    What I find weird is that I get refused the most basic bank account even though I have a credit car & home shopping catalogue under my name and also my credit score is much better than my partners. My partner's score: 148 My Score: 560 Recently I opened a halifax easy cash account online, I was issued with a card, internet banking etc but shortly after I was told to destroy the card as my account has been closed. I went into branch to open a basic card account, even that has been refused. Any ideas as to why this is happening or what I can do to find out?

    CIFAS Marker

    Hi, Few months ago I was a victim of fraud, nothing was taken but a fake application was made to Vanquis for a credit card. Now I have a CIFAS marker: Type: ID Fraud (pers credit card) Please can someone let me know how I can get this removed
  6. Hi, I have checked with the registry and a CCJ does exist. If I apply for the CCJ to be removed to the court what are the chances that it will be removed and can Welcome issue another CCJ?
  7. Thanks to everyone for your responses. In the SAR response there was not a single document in relation to any court proceedings or reminder of payment what-so-ever. I have sent them another letter mentioning all this and as to why the letters are not signed, no letterhead, incorrect dates on the letters etc. They responded back saying they are investigating my complaint. Any advice on how I can progress this further would be very much appreciated.
  8. Hi everyone, I made a SAR request to welcome finance for the CCJ they placed on my credit file. The documents they sent me: 1) Default Notice - Had incorrect address, not signed and dated 23/Nov/2010 2) Letter with the default notice with same mistakes The confusion is this: My CCJ Judgement date is 11/May/2009 now what I do not understand is if they served me with a default notice in 2010 then how did they place a CCJ in 2009? Why is not any of the default letters signed? How comes there is no prior warning letters saying that they were issuing court proceedings in the SAR pack that they sent me? The statement also shows that they added various fees such as, AD HOC FEE, Capitalisation, Interest, Interest Reversal. Someone please help me.
  9. Hello everyone, I would be very grateful for a answer to my query. I had a current account with RBS in which there was no overdraft or credit facilities. There where some bounced direct debits for which they applied charges etc and bought the balance to over £400. For the above they have placed a default on my credit file. Can please someone advice me if they are allowed to do this, are the charges legal or can I fight this to get it removed.
  10. Hi, I had a account with RBS with NO overdraft facilities but it seems that they have charged me for returned cheques ( i think £76 per 2 cheques), paid out some direct debits even though there was no money in the account and without a overdraft arrangment. All this lead to a total debt of £493. They also charged me £30 default notice fee They have closed my account without letting me know and have defaulted me. Another thing, the statement also shows the following: (Date) 29/09/2009 - (Details) Transfer FROM SUSPENSE (paid in) 2.43 (Balance) £493.09 OD (Date) 30/09/2009 - (Details) Transfer BAL TO BBD FINCON (pain in) 493.09 (Balance) £0.00 OD Am not really sure what that means, does it means that there is no outstanding debt and what is BAL to FINCON? Can anyone please let me know if this can be challenged in any way?
  11. Hi everyone, Since 2010 I have been in dispute with T-Mobile in regards to a default they placed on my file. SAR was made where they have failed to provide documents in relation to the account requesting more information as they cannot located details in relation to 1 one. The details was supplied in 2012 but they never responded. They responded just recently in August 2013 speciffly stating " Thank you for your letter dated **/**/2011". In the letter they were advising me to make another SAR with the fee. When I wrote back and told them that this has already been done they have responded with the letter which is attached. Default Date: 10/06/2009 Please read the letter as they clearly say they cannot locate any information and the account was closed in 2001. So the account closes in 2001 and default placed in 2009?? Further they say that they keep information for the maximum period of 6 years. Which means they removed all information in 2007, so how did they place the default in 2009. Please advice me on the above, how I should write to them mentioning any specific laws and if I can take this matter to court. I did complain to the CISAS, they have said they cannot look into it as its over 9 months old and told me to take this to court. Still awaiting response from Ombudsman.
  12. No I did not send a SAR. Shall I send one?
  13. Another thing, they say that the debt was for over £400 but on my credit file it says £303. This is the email I received from BT: I've checked your details with the address you've kindly provided. I see you had account with us for the address quoted, we sent a final bill dated 28 January 2010 which came to £428.66. We asked for payment to be made by the 4 February 2010, after reminders were sent no payment was made and this account was passed to a collection agency.
  14. Hi, The default was placed by BT in 2009. Today I received an email from BT (after I made a complaint) stating that they sent me reminders for this debt in February 2010 after which the debt was passed onto a DCA. Default placed in 2009 and debt passed to DCA in 2010? I dont understand, please someone explain, is that possible?
  15. So can I challenge the Default Notice and the penalty charges? If so what route shall I take?
