  1. Hi all I have debts with Littlewoods, Next and hubby has one with Very (along with other debts such as credit cards and a store card but these are the 'catalogue' debts). We are struggling to pay any of our debt and need to make some payment arrangements. I have noted that there is a CCA request which is often used by people to see if the debt is enforceable, I am not sure when these ONLINE accounts were set up but believe it was 2007/08. Can anyone advise if we are able to take any steps in regards to CCA... Also, would you advise to CCA them anyway and see what happens?...... In either instance can we claim back all the late payment fees etc from these debts?... .I understand I would need to SAR them but after that not sure how to actually request the fees back so a little advice would be lovely please. Thanks guys
  2. Hi everyone, I took out a few loans with quick quid a few years ago, paid them all on time until the last one. I cant remember exactly what happened but i do remember i was having some sort of problem with the bank at the time and tried to resolve the loan with qq several times. After a while I started getting those "please contact us" letters from Mackenzie Hall but because i had never heard of them i didnt contact them. About a year or so later i got a letter from i think Motormille Finance asking for repayment of the qq loan, i arranged a payment plan with them and the first payment was taken from my account on the due date,. the next month the payment never came off so i conntacted them and they said it was a problem with my card details and they would set it up again. it never came off again and this time the excuse was that my repayment plan had been cancelled because of a failed payment, they set it back up and I thought that was the end of it. I then got a letter from National Debt Recovery demanding the same money so i called them and told them i already had a payment plan set up with another company and therefore i would not be paying them. i also called mmf and advised them of the second company, both companies said it was them i should be paying but i told them until i got confirmation from qq i wouldnt be paying either of them. I heard nothing until recently (around three years after all that) when i got a similar letter to what a lot of other people seem to be getting from Marshall Hoares bailiffs, but after reading the info on here about them decided to ignore it. today I got a letter from MMF saying they are taking me to court AND a call from Marshall Hoares about the same money. I toled marshall hoares the story and that i would not pay them until qq told me who to pay and i called mmf to advise them the same. mmf say my account is sttill on hold after me originally informing them about two companies wanting the same money and that they have not heard from qq and could not explain why i had recieved the letter from them. Marshall hoares said they will contact qq and call me back. I contacted quick quid and they said they only ever sold the debt to Mackenzie Hall and quote "the debt no longer matters to us" So my question is what do i do? should i just ignore all these threatening letters as other threads suggest?
  3. Really appreciate anyones help here!! I ordered an iPad quite a while back now back in 2013 from Very. It never arrived and I only got an empty box. I complained to very.co.uk and they would not refund me. I contacted my bank and they suggested I raised a chargeback and I got my money back. I kept getting letters from Very stating I owe them the amount and if I do not pay I will be contacted by a debt company. I contacted my bank and was told not to pay the debt as I had not received the device. I now have a letter stating I have a default notice because of this amount from Very and NDR debt company. I contacted very again and the debt company, no one is helping me and my credit is still being affected by this. Whoever I speak to I keep getting turned away. I then contacted the head office of Very (Shop Direct) and explained the situation. They replied saying I didn't reply to letters or emails (I did) and that because of the length of time they will not re investigate and I still need to pay the debt and that it may effect my credit score. I emailed and called and tweeted them. They stated that the item was sent out. I then contacted the head office and they investigated and concluded that nothing could be done. I reported it to the FOS 2 weeks ago when i received a default notice letter. I did not do anything before that as i was advised by my bank to ignore letters and to not pay anything. What do i do?! I never got the item so why should I pay the debt?! My bank even says do not pay it. Any info would be great!
  4. Hi guys, wondering if anyone can advise...sit ya self down get a coffee as this long winded !!! My son 22, had not long returned from Afghan where he was serving in the Army, and was involved in a serious bike accident 18 months ago and has resulted in him being physically and mentally injured to the point that he is being medically discharged from the Army. Part of his mental injury has resulted in memory loss, deep depression (to the point of attempted suicide). Some how he has managed to rack up debt with all of the above companies. He was living with his girlfriend but has since moved home and I am trying to sort out the mess that he is in. He has taken out pay day loans with Peachy, Quick Quid, Cashfloat and 4no with Lending Stream. He has also had goods from Very and Littelwoods and his account has been passed on to NDR (in house debt collection). I have contacted them all and advised them of his situation and that he is experiencing hardship. QQ have agreed to a payment plan which I am happy with but Lending Stream have totally ignored the phone calls and sold the debt on to another company because I have questioned if they had done relevant credit checks etc. Are lending stream right that they had 4 lines of credit for my son?? Is that legal?? Peachy when questioned regarding the affordability of the loan and credit checks have also sent the debt to a recovery agent. With NDR I have offered to pay for all goods but no interest or charges which they are refusing. Total amount £720.00 offered £530.00 £72 charges, rest interest. Can anyone advise me please... Thanks in advance
  5. Hi all. I have a Very account with a credit limit of £750. The balance is currently £294. I've only ever spent £200 on the card. I paid way more than the minimum every month until i had a dispute with them. I ordered a rug but didn't like it and sent it back. the money never got credited back to my account. They sent it to NDR. and then capquest. there's loads of late payment, administration fees and interest every month. Its now under my debt management plan with step change but i really think its wrong. I dont have all the statements and letters but have written to capquest and very with a SAR and a CCA request and am awaiting a response. Any help? x
  6. Hello everyone - I hope you can help, I’ve been reading through the forum but couldn’t find answer, I have a catalogue account with very opened 2011 - I went into arrears at the end of 2012 - I’m not to sure what my balance was including interest but I know it was over £2000 - I did the usual thing burying head in the sand act - then I received a few letters from NDR and I set up a payment plan Feb 2013 to pay them £105 per month. This was on the premise that they (NDR) will be freezing interest on my account and I would be making regular payments - I have been making regular payments for just over a year now - and just received my statement for the month saying I still owe them well over 1300 and need to make a minimum payment of £647 - on closer inspection I noticed that I have been charged interest every month - after interest was suppose to be frozen - It’s completely my fault for stupidly not looking at my statements and happily paying this every month! But I’ve gone into my very account and have a look at NDR statements from July 2013 and it looks like I have been charged between £40 - £60 every time I have paid them. Is this right since they agreed to freeze my interest ( I don’t have anything in writing) when I initially set up a payment plan. Is there anyway I can claim this back? Also when settling the debt would I am able t negotiating an amount to completely satisfy thee debt? Apologies f its a stupid question - I just feel so silly for trusting these people and not checking my account was fine when this was put in place Thank you in advance for you help
  7. Hello to anyone that can point me in the right direction! I owed Very around £550.00 and the debt got passed to NDR Money as I could not pay - I made an arrangement with NDR to pay £25 a month. I spoke to them and setup a standing order and was usprised to receive a letter last year saying they had charged a penalty becuase the payment was late, I think - if i can remember that far bck they said that it was becuase i said id pay every 30 days. On the standing order i had set it to pay a certain date, i.e 1st of every month and they said becuase of this it had made the payment late. to cut a long story short, following payments adding up to about £300 in the last year their statements still show i owe £547.00. Should I send them an SAR request to see whats going on? Thanks for your help
  8. I have catalogue debts which have been passed to NDR (I understand these are part of Shop Direct). Like many others, myself and my husband got into a situation where we could not afford pay the minimum amount. I have written numerous letters informing them of our situation and even giving them a StepChange reference (which they requested), all ignored, until this morning. I have now received letters for each account from NDR to say they will not accept a our offer of repayment. What do I do now and where do I go from here. I understand I owe this money and I don't think I could query my agreement as accounts were opened in about 2009/2010. Has anyone ever managed to get NDR to agree to a reduced payment plan??
  9. Hi All I have 2 catalogues of which I owe approx £3500 to each, the company I worked for went into liquidation on 1st November leaving me with no job and in a situation where by I cant make the minimum payments of £160 each per month, I have contacted both to be told, I have to make the payments and they cant make a payment plan for me Im so worried the payments are due on the 3rd of March and I cannot meet them, I did offer £50 to each but this was refused, can anyone help
  10. Hey, My partner has found herself in a bit of a mess with her a specific pay-day loan from Speed Credit (Who I think shows up as Microcredit on her Noodle Credit Report). The loan with Speed Credit was initially for £400, but since they've been closed down, the debt was apparently transferred to NDR (Northern Debt Recovery) who are now requesting a total sum of £3,329. Seeing as Speed Credit was closed down, and NDR are recovering the money for Speed Credit, does it need to be paid? At the moment her Credit Report is... Bad. Simply Put. And we're looking at improving it so we can get a mortgage in a few years. But can't really improve it without getting rid of these Red Marks on her sheet. Also - On her Experian credit report, it shows a pay-day loan from a company 'EXPRESS FINANCE LIMITED', does anyone know what company that is? I really do appreciate any help that can be given. Thanks guys, in advance.
  11. Hi all I was wondering if you could help with a question I have. I originally offered NDR a payment plan (worked out via a personal dmp). They refused my offer of payment, even though it is all I can afford. Upon searching for help on the internet with what to do next, I realised I could send a CCA request, which I did and they replied quite promptly with a written report of my account and a printed version of what I agreed to online. This is where I'm a little confused. As my account was set up online, they have a box which says 'tick for signature', which has a tick in it. Is this enforceable as me signing up to an agreement with them or does it have to be an actual signature? I'm not sure what to do next until I know if they can enforce my tick box online version? Many thanks for reading
  12. Had 1 of those messages about being taken to court etc from each so called firm. Phoned both up and guess what our postcode didn't come up on the system. And for some reason NDR can't take it off their system. what can I do ?????????????????????? It seems someone has put my home number on a form, but put a different address and email. We have reported it to a fraud team, is there anything else we can do?????????????
  13. Hi all, I'm really hoping someone would see this and help me out I'm a 20 year old student and I stupidly took out a £300 loan with TOOTHFAIRY and I signed onto a DMP shortly after, agreeing to take £40 a month. At this point, I apparently had to pay £800. I paid them month by month and to this day I've paid them £310 and I am currently in the process of switching DMP's from Debt Advisory to Stepchange (because they're free) and I received an email from Toothfairy saying that I now needed to repay £1711!!!!!!!!!!!! Bear in mind I have kept up with payments consistently! The £40 has always gone through to them! I've logged a complaint with FOS and OFT but to be honest, they couldn't answer me straight when I asked if I would be dealing with this for the rest of my life if they don't accept any payment plans, they could keep charging interest. PLEASE help me, I start 2nd year of uni next month and this is making me very depressed, the constant emails and calls are very scary and the thought of it never going away frightens me so much!

  15. Hi, I am having huge difficulty with NDR/Marshall Hoares. I have read several threads on them but not entirely sure what I should be doing next. I wasn’t able to handle my debts anymore so I entered into a DMP with Step Change. As per instructions, I sent an email to all my creditors that I was entering a DMP and that they will be receiving details shortly. While the whole thing was getting set up, Speed Credit kept trying to call me. I spoke to them the first few times explaining that they need to wait a while. Few days later they passed it to NDR and then calls kept coming from them. Finally it got ridiculous as they were calling me 2-3 times a day during my working hours and I had to say the same thing over and over again. i started to ignore their calls. Then they called my work number. I wasn’t at work and a colleague picked up and left me a message. When I called them and asked them why they called my work, they said there was no mention on their system that my work number was called. Big Surprise!!! I then told them they should never call my work and the guy told me I provided the details and that they will call my work number if they cant get me on my mobile. After I spoke to the advisor and explained my situation (that they will be receiving a correspondence letter soon), on the same day I received 2 other calls, just different idiots asking the same thing. They are calling me 2-3 times a day now, even on weekends. Also text and emails with home visit threats and in a few months my £400 loan has gone up to £2245. Step Change has sent the correspondence at least 3 times on my request and every time they declined it. Apparently it wasn't enough. They want me to pay a minimum of £40/month. I have several other Payday loans and can’t pay any more than what has been offered to them. Last Sunday, they spoofed their number so it seemed like an international call coming in. I picked up and the guy was very rude, screaming at me. Why I took out a loan when I can’t pay? Apparently 90% of their customers always pay and are very satisfied with them, etc. etc. I even explained that if they had accepted the offer which was in late February, a lot of that debt would have already been paid but they didn’t. He kept on saying that I need to give up some luxuries, I asked him to look at my budget sheet and tell me if there is anything there that can be removed. I don’t earn a lot so after all the essential things; I don’t have a lot extra left over. Whatever is left is going to step change. he told me my land line and my mobile is a luxury and I should give that up and pay them back. I couldn’t believe it; thank god he didn’t say that rent was a luxury as well. I asked them to contact Step Change and he said and I quote ‘we don’t contact your debt management company, they should contact us. If we don’t hear from them, we will contact you only’. I have read somewhere that once you are in a DMP, the debtors should only contact the debt management company and not me. Is that true? We finally came to an arrangement that I will ask Step Change to send them the correspondence again but I know they will decline it again. The calls/text/emails are still coming in. I really need this to stop and there is no way I am paying over 2 grand on a £400 loan. Please help.
  16. I paid off my NDR (Speedcredit/toothfairy) loan from these crooks around the end of April. I reported the issue of these companies taking money out of my account and reported that ndr, paydayexpress and PDUK all took money out without my authorization. My bank did refund that money back to me as they were at fault because I had cancelled my continuous payment authority in letter and over the phone. I received this email of NDR yesterday- A payment made on your file has been cancelled. Your card issuer has indicated you have requested this. 1. If you do not contact us today we will pass this file together with evidence of your agreement to pay this amount to the Police. Fraudulent activity on the account includes but is not limited to: 1. Using stolen cards to pay off loans 2. Using your own card and then cancelling the payment later. 3. Cancelling a payment taken in accordance with agreed payment plans and/or terms and conditions. You should note that ANY such fraud may be pursued through the Courts together with all evidence including our IP tracking technology which traces the origin of the payment application to yourself. If you do not contact us within 24 hours - Recovery Agents will visit all addresses we have on file for you. - Your file may also be passed to the Police with a view to Criminal Prosecution. This will add charges to your file and increase the cost of repaying the debt. We expect to hear from you today. Yours sincerely, ANTI-FRAUD (218) NORTHERN DEBT RECOVERY 0843 381 0843 -------------------------------------------------------------------- Further to a phone call they said I did a charge back and I need to pay off what was £700 from a £200 loan... we had a bit of an argument and he then said I had to pay £300 in 2 installments in May and June but my email says June and July....this is causing me alot of stress. Please advise me what my next step should be. Thank you.
  17. Just paid them what I am due(loan +1 months interest!). They think that I am still due them over £800 in charges/interest!!! Ha ha ha they aint getting another penny off me! TAKE ME TO COURT FOR THE REST NDR/MHB!!!
  18. Hi everyone I'm new here so bear with me I'm having problems with Very & NDR and they aren't very helpful at all when you want to sort it out. My original debt was £1200 but it's now £1800 due to all the charges and interest they've added on. I've offered to pay what I could which was £15 a month as I'm stuck on JSA at the moment and I don't get much from that but they won't accept any less than £70 odd a month! I usually receive a letter monthly telling me to make a minimum payment of that and i usually just send in a small token payment as I can't afford it! I've received a letter today from Very with something about a Default Notice and that i'm in breach of a clause because I've failed to make all my periodic payments in full when due and my arrears are outstanding. If I do not take the action required by this notice before the date shown then further action will be taken against me? I don't know what to do, I can't make a full payment and they wouldn't accept what I could pay, at least I try to pay! Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

  20. Hello, I had a bad experience with these people. I borrowed £400 and today it is over £2400 in debt with them. Continued harassment by NDR and MH Bailiffs, who for those who dont know, are owned by the same owners as ToothFairy. It's all a [EDIT]. I am refusing to repay, and I am happy for them to take me to court where I will fight them. There is no note on my credit file regarding ToothFairy. I'd like to know if this is the same for everyone? Has anyone ever been visited by a real bailiff, or been taken to court by these people? I have launched a website to warn others and share peoples bad experiences with these people. Please visit the site and share your experiences. No more victims. Please reply to this thread with your experiences Thanks and best of luck.
  21. Hello I've been reading posts on here and need some advice, I have littlewoods and very debt that have been handed to NDR. I haven't been able to make the full payments they require and I never answer their calls as I hear they try to get you in a corner and demand more money off you. It seems like the right thing to do is send a letter offering an amount per month, who should I send this to? NDR or very/littlewoods ? Also I have no idea what to write in it, I just want to get something sorted ASAP as its really stressing me out worrying about letters or maybe bailiffs, any help would be great thanks!!
  22. Hey guys i don't know if anyone can help. I haven't a clue about debt collectors, agencies etc and i am finding it a little over whelming ! I did something very stupid back in November and took out at loan with tooth-fairy finance for 450 pounds. I missed the repayment date as i was a way my own fault really. There was no contact on their part bar one email when i got back home stating that they have emailed me and phone me etc which they hadn't and because i haven't contacted them my case has been passed to NDR, i rang up tooth fairy finance who then stated my debt had been passed on to NDR like the email and they will speak to NDR now and arrange a repayment plan. They said its either 100 pounds a month or 1000 pounds upfront or they'll take me to court there and then, me being naive and feeling pressured into it agreed to the 100 pounds a month because they wouldn't received any less and i was told that i would end up court paying more and having bailiffs round if i don't. Now its come to the point where they've cut my hours at work and i can not afford the 100 pounds a month anymore and they are refusing to help. Please help me im at my wits end i know its my own fault for getting in this situation but i am trying to sort out my issues now.
