  1. These people are the bane of my life. I have all my debts sorted and arranged apart from these monkeys. My debt in April when I started asking for an arrangement was £2152.62. Between ex and me that was run up. He wasn't paying etc etc but I have been looking to pay and agreed to them from June I would pay £70 pm if they would freeze interest etc I paid £70 last month and it hasn't even touched it. Since April till now when this has finally been sorted cause they wouldn't agree an amount the account is now at £2401.66!!! The interest that is going on is more than what I'm paying them. They are essentially using me as a cash cow (MOOOOO) I wrote to them recently in an email to ask them what the heck was going on, that I would continue paying the £70 pm if they could reciprocate with freezing the interest and if not I would reduce payments to £5pm. I got this back from advisor: Thank you for your email. Please note, your next statement is due to go out on 8th August 2015 and you have 28 days from this date to make your next payment. We note your request to suspend interest and charges on the account, however, we are unable to agree to this at the present time. Your account and financial situation will be reviewed within six months. At the point of the review, we will look at the payments that you have made since the arrangement was agreed. We will also take into consideration the interest and current payment rate. Your interest is not frozen at this moment. Before we can consider your account for review, it's really important that you keep up to date with your agreed payments. Paying regularly, and on time will have a positive influence on the review decision. If you wish to talk to us about the above, or anything else, please contact us on 0345 074 2107. Yours sincerely Ansab Adris Customer Correspondence Team Is this right or actually something they can do and are just not willing to do? It looks like it still all going through Fashionworld and not their in house collections team or 3rd party. Just looking for some advice on what could happen and what to do next. Thanks L x:|
  2. Right I am now a couple more months down the line. All still bar Minicredit on board. This was apparently passed to Opos which is fair enough. They tried to call me a couple of times on my mobile while I was at work. but they haven't ever tried my mobile and no letters have been received......I can't even get on to Oposlimited.com has their website changed or something happened to them? What should I do now regarding them? Just a bit concerned incase they try and contact me at old address which is where my dad lives....
  3. After months of nowhere its finally come.... mini credit Dear madam Despite our efforts you have chosen not to settle the above outstanding account (which is now £840, as they have managed to put 3 £100 debt recovery costs on there?! but orig amount was £156.00) We have no alternative but to escalate the matter. If full payment is not made by close of business on 22nd September the matter will be referred to our legal team. There will be legal charges added to your account. On 10th October 2012 we will mark default status on your credit file. Also be aware that forthcoming CCJ on your name affects severely your ability to receive credit in the future including credit cards, mortgages. To avoid futher unneccessary costs please ensure payment is sent by return. OK, so what do I say to them now and what do I do now???
  4. So what should I tell them now?
  5. The minicredit saga continues......what now?? The Following Response is being sent to You according to the Formal Complaints Procedure. As I understand correctly You are not able to settle the account with a full and final settlement payment or settlement plan. The only option to settle the balance is by setting up a payment plan. Although we do understand that You are going through financial difficulties at the moment, we are not in a position to freeze the interest until the 1st of November 2012 when the Loan is defaulted. We are still able to waive the total amount of debit attempt fees and the debt recovery fee from the outstanding balance. The interest cannot be frozen due to the fact that Microcredit Ltd has provided the funds to You for 30 days only, but You broke this agreement and are to use our fund a lot longer. The overdue penalties of £25 and £55 are considered payable for breaking the Loan Agreement and cannot be waived from the balance. The total outstanding balance £691.40 from the date of issuing (4th of June 2012) until today thee the 15th of August 2012 consists of the following: 1. Loan principal £120 2. Interest in total £86.40 (1% of the Principal per day) 3. Overdue penalty £25 (was added on the 1st day overdue) 4. Overdue penalty £55 (was added on the 3rd day overdue) 5. Debt Recovery fee £100 (was added on the 30th day overdue) 6. Debit Attempt fees in total £305 (every unsuccessful attempt to receive the repayment costs up to £5). The following information has been taken from the Loan Agreement: KEY INFORMATION If you break this Agreement, we will charge you if we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on the due date for repayment. A fee of £25 will be charged on the day that your missed payment was due. If we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on the due date, we will attempt to obtain repayment a second time 2 days later, and if we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on this second occasion we will charge you a further amount of £55. If we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment we may charge up to £5. Interest on any sum in arrears will be charged at the contractual rate, both before and after judgment, until payment. Also, you must pay us all other reasonable costs and expenses we incur (including any legal costs on a full indemnity basis) in tracing you, or enforcing, or attempting to enforce, our rights under this Agreement. Repayment, Default and Recovery 8. You agree to make all payments to us under this Agreement at the proper time. We will collect payments by debiting your bank account using the debit card details you have registered with us up to three times per day. You authorise us to debit your bank account to collect payments due under this Agreement. If we are unsuccessful in collecting payment, we may try to debit your bank account again at a later stage until we have successfully collected payment. If you have provided us with details of a second debit card and we are unsuccessful in collecting payment from the first debit card, you authorise us to seek payment via the second debit card in the same way as you authorise us to seek payment via the first debit card. You must give us new valid debit card details when you cancel, lose or your debit card(s) registered with us become(s) invalid when you have unpaid loan with us. We are willing to deduct the total amount of debit attempt fees £305 and the debt recovery fee £100 from the outstanding balance and accept a lower amount as the full and final settlement. We are able to accept the amount of £380 as a full and final settlement repayable under a payment plan through our debt recovery partner. The settlement balance consists of the original due date repayment amount £156, interest up to 01/11/2012 £144 and the overdue penalties of £80. The contractual interest rate is 1% of the principal per day from the date of issuing until default date. The above described overdue charges and interest is added in accordance with the Loan Agreement attached to the current e-mail. We will forward the account over to one of our debt recovery partners in the beginning of September 2012 who will contact You shortly after to set up a payment arrangement with affordable monthly payment amounts.

  8. Minicredit make me so angry. Just been sent this The Following Response is being sent to You according to the Formal Complaints Procedure. The first contact You made with our Company regarding the current outstanding loan was on the 20th of June 2012 when You e-mailed us asking for a payment plan. We activated the hardship form on Your online account so that You could apply for a payment plan. You have refused to follow the instructions because You do not wish to provide us with the information regarding Your other creditors. Microcredit Ltd has the right to have this information in order to see Your income and expenditure sheet and take into consideration Your other financial obligations. We also need supportive documentation to see that the loss in the household income was unforeseen and unknown for You at the time of applying for the loan. Without supportive documentation to prove that the difficulties were unforeseen or if several other short-term loans (5 or more is considered fraudulent borrowing) were taken from other Creditors we are unable to provide You with a payment plan without Legal proceedings. Please follow the Procedure set for Customers who need a payment plan. The overdue penalties You have also disputed are in accordance with the Loan Agreement and legally justified. We are unable to waive the penalties from Your outstanding balance. The following information has been taken from the Loan Agreement: KEY INFORMATION If you break this Agreement, we will charge you if we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on the due date for repayment. A fee of £25 will be charged on the day that your missed payment was due. If we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on the due date, we will attempt to obtain repayment a second time 2 days later, and if we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment on this second occasion we will charge you a further amount of £55. If we unsuccessfully attempt to obtain repayment we may charge up to £5. Interest on any sum in arrears will be charged at the contractual rate, both before and after judgment, until payment. Also, you must pay us all other reasonable costs and expenses we incur (including any legal costs on a full indemnity basis) in tracing you, or enforcing, or attempting to enforce, our rights under this Agreement. Once we have received the hardship form back and the payment plan is agreed to be set up the account will be allocated to our debt recovery partner. Please be aware that the Hardship team member will also contact You by phone to discuss the balance and send You a written confirmation of the agreed offer before the account is sent to the third party debt recovery agency. Microcredit Ltd is able to provide our Hardship customers three possibilities: The first option is a settlement. The settlement means that when You contact our Customer support we are able to reduce the current outstanding balance and waive some of the failed debit attempt fees. The settlement must be paid over the phone during the phone-call with a debit/credit card. The second option we are able to provide You is a settlement plan. We provide all our clients 120 days from the due date to make payments of any amount towards their outstanding balance. You would need to make at least one payment a month towards the balance. Before the 120th comes days You would need to make a full and final settlement offer. Microcredit Ltd will then overlook all the payments we have received and they will be taken into consideration while calculating the settlement. The reasonable settlement amount must cover the daily interest for every day our funds have been used, the loan principal and the two penalties for breaking the Loan agreement. The interest is 1% of the Loan principal per day. We are able to decrease some of the failed debit attempt fees. Microcredit does not provide You the dates nor the amounts when You need to make the payments. The partial payments possibility is available 24/7 on Your http://www.minicredit.co.uk online account under "Repayment" section. The most important part is that at least once a month a payment of any amount must be made. The loan should be cleared latest by the 120th overdue day. The settlement can be discussed at any point when You have a larger amount available to offer as a full and final settlement. The third option is a payment plan. The payment plan means that we will add the default date interest to the loan principal, the two penalties for breaking the Loan agreement (£80) and the decreased debit attempt fees and forward the account to our debt recovery partner from the beginning of the next month. The default is marked on the credit reference but You will be able to make the payments on a monthly basis to clear the balance. Kind regards, Kristel Martinson MiniCredit Claims Department 0871 890 3015 Fax 020 71382919 http://www.minicredit.co.uk [email protected] What now?? Also first contact was on the 10th june, then 16th then the 20th when they finally decided to respond. What should I say to them now? Loz x
  9. Result!!! Still being hampered by Minicredit, but Payday Express, after constant calls, I wrote to them on the 27th with this. Dear Payday Express. You say on the phone and on here that it has to be to do with my own personal circumstances, yet on the email below as well you mention long term illness for a partner. My partner is long term ill and because of reductions in his DLA, ESA and IIB this is why I cannot pay this in full and I have tried time and time again to sort out a repayment plan. For you to say this cannot be done is rubbish as I have done my digging online and one of the people I speak to has been set up on a repayment plan with you because her dad is long term ill and she is now having to look after him as well. So is it now one rule for one person and one for another. As I have said on the phone to you as well you have an obligation and OFT guidelines to follow as a lender... 2.2 In general terms, businesses: • treat debtors fairly – debtors should not be subjected to aggressive practices, inappropriate coercion, or conduct which is deceitful, oppressive, unfair or improper, whether unlawful or not. • be transparent in their dealings with debtors and others – information provided should be clear and should not be confusing or misleading • exercise forbearance and consideration – in particular towards debtors experiencing difficulty - we would expect businesses to work with debtors with a view to providing them with reasonable time and opportunity to repay debts and, where appropriate, to signpost them to sources of free independent debt advice • act proportionately when seeking to recover debts, taking into account debtors' circumstances - actions taken in respect of arrears or default should give proper consideration to available options and the likely effect of such actions on the debtor18 • establish and implement clear, effective and appropriate policies and procedures for engaging with debtors and other relevant parties, including having appropriate mechanisms for responding to reasonably queried and disputed debt. • establish and implement clear, appropriate and effective policies and procedures for identifying and dealing with particularly vulnerable debtors. 3 UNFAIR OR IMPROPER BUSINESS PRACTICES 3.1 This chapter identifies matters that the OFT considers to be unfair or improper business practices for the purposes of section 25(2A)(e) of the Act. These are set out under the following sub-headings: • Communication: businesses should communicate in a clear, accurate and transparent manner • Physical/psychological harassment: businesses should not engage in physical or psychological harassment of debtors, or relevant third parties • Deceptive and/or unfair methods: businesses should be truthful and fair in their dealings with debtors and others • Charging for debt recovery: charges should not be levied inappropriately or unfairly • Debt collection visits: those visiting debtors must not act in a threatening or unclear manner • Statute barred debt: businesses should not use unfair methods (including misrepresenting the legal position) if seeking to recover statute barred debt i. pressurising debtors to pay more than they can reasonably afford32 without experiencing undue difficulty33 failing to allow for alternative, affordable, repayment amounts when a reasonable proposal is made by a debtor or a third party representative acting on his behalf (for example, a debt adviser) Charging for debt recovery 3.10 Charges should not be levied inappropriately or unfairly. 3.11 Examples of unfair or improper practices are as follows: a. misleading debtors into believing they are legally liable to pay recovery charges when this is not the case b. claiming recovery costs from a debtor in the absence of express contractual provision to be able to do so For example, where there is no provision in the credit agreement that expressly allows for such charges to be levied. c. not giving a clear indication in credit agreements of the amount of any charges payable on default d. applying unreasonable charges. In In the OFT's view, creditors should consider reducing or stopping interest and charges where a borrower evidences that he is in financial difficulty and is unable to meet repayments as they fall due or when he can only make ‘token’ repayments such that his level of debt would continue to increase if interest and charges continue to be applied 52 An 'unreasonable charge' in this context would be a charge, the level of which, is not based on the recovery of actual and necessary costs So in view of you not adhering to OFT guidelines, can I please have your address to send a formal letter of complaint to yourself and to the OFT, hereby giving you 8 weeks before I contact the FOS. Got a singular call this morning from someone called Nicholas, to which I just said I am dealing with this by email, goodbye. Turns out I got an email from him just 9 minutes later saying this: We thank you for your email, the contents of which have been noted. We write to inform you that we will accept your offer of repayment. We would ask that you provide the dates and means of the payments you will be making. Please direct all your queries to Nicholas Krauspe, so I can help you with going forward. Regards, Payday Express So after all the crap they have put me through they have decided they can accept whats happened and accept my offer.....HALLELUJAH BREAK THROUGH MOMENT!!!! So they will be getting money from the end of this month. Thats now 4 of 6 getting paid on a monthly basis. Just Lending Stream who has still not contacted me, and Minicredit chomping at the bit. Woohoo, I feel great. Loz
  10. Lol their threaty email. We would like to remind you that your MiniCredit overdue loan balance is £420.00. >If we are unable to recover full amount within next 10 days we'll send Your account to THE DOORSTEP COLLECTOR and You will incur extra costs. >We may also start legal action against You. We also report the status of Your outstanding account to Credit reference agencies. All this process affects your credit score adversely and ability to receive credit in the future. >Best regards
  11. The Following Response is being sent to You according to the Formal Complaints Procedure. Microcredit Ltd has provided You all the options that we are able to offer. We are reminding You to settle this account under the terms that are written in the Loan Agreement that You electronically signed and accepted. Unfortunately You have refused all the offers that have been provided to You. We are able to decrease the payment plan balance from GBP425 to GBP380 waving all of the failed debit attempt fees of GBP45. The amount of GBP380 consists of the loan principal, interest until the default date and the two penalties of GBP80 of breaking the Loan Agreement. This can either be settled under a settlement plan within 100 days or with our Debt Collection partner during a longer period of time but when we send the account off to our Debt Collection partner the default will be immediately marked on Your credit file. Please let me know what You decide considering the above latest by the 31st of July 2012 because if You wish to set up a payment plan we need to send Your account to our debt recovery partner from the beginning of August 2012. We hope this response has sufficiently answered your questions. If not, please do not send another email. Instead, reply to this email. Kind regards, Minicredit Claims Department What should I tell them???

  13. After receiving the automated threat letter from them of, if you don't pay within 30 days we will send it to a doorstop collector and may get legal action against you, I told them to stop making threats and respond to my email. I have no got this.....Thoughts? A MiniCredit Claims Department member has replied to your claim, with the following response: The Following Response is being sent to You according to the Formal Complaints Procedure. Microcredit Ltd has provided You all the options that we are able to offer. We are reminding You to settle this account under the terms that are written in the Loan Agreement that You electronically signed and accepted. Unfortunately You have refused all the offers that have been provided to You. We are able to decrease the payment plan balance from GBP425 to GBP380 waving all of the failed debit attempt fees of GBP45. The amount of GBP380 consists of the loan principal, interest until the default date and the two penalties of GBP80 of breaking the Loan Agreement. This can either be settled under a settlement plan within 100 days or with our Debt Collection partner during a longer period of time but when we send the account off to our Debt Collection partner the default will be immediately marked on Your credit file. Please let me know what You decide considering the above latest by the 31st of July 2012 because if You wish to set up a payment plan we need to send Your account to our debt recovery partner from the beginning of August 2012. We hope this response has sufficiently answered your questions. If not, please do not send another email. Instead, reply to this email. Kind regards, Minicredit Claims Department
  14. You;'ve twisted my arm, sorry I'm a born worrier. 3 of 6 agreed, 2 being pains n one never heard from
  15. Ok fair enough I shall do that with both of them and get that to OFT. As where the FOS is concerned, I have read recent replies on the boards here that the FOS is just flying through correspondence and ruling against us saying everything is in their terms and conditions so we have to pay up?!
