  1. hi wonder if any one can shed some light on a situation. 12 years ago a friend lent another friend some money to set up a business. the friend lending hoped to be involved in the business at a later date. the friend who lent the money later decided she wanted nothing to do in said business as had found other work/ commitments. There was a receipt detailing money being loaned for business. no terms no repayments etc. as yet no payments back have been made as verbal agreement was, by the lender working with the business would recoup money loaned, this did not happen and the business was not s
  2. Hi All, Looking for some advice please (I have a number of debts I am looking to gain control of), I will start one at a time and create a separate thread for each. I had an HSBC Advance current account from 2009 - 2014, during this time on several occasions, HSBC allowed me to go into an unauthorised overdraft and charged significantly (many times charging £100 - £150 for this "priveledge") - admittedly my poor account management was to blame for the situation, but ultimately meant every month my account would go overdrawn by up to £150, most times made up solely from the charges
  3. http://newsthump.com/2015/04/21/wonga-declares-37-3m-loss-after-accidentally-borrowing-a-fiver-from-itself/ "Wonga’s CEO, Norman Bugger-Crumpets, said “The irony isn’t lost on us.” “I’ve begged our collections team to let us off the hook, but we’ve programmed them to be single-minded heartless w*nk-pheasants of the highest order.” “They’ve told us we either have to pay up, or some thoroughly terrifying men will come to take anything that isn’t nailed down, and maybe have a go on my wife.” "
  4. The OFT are writing to 29,500 state Schools asking them to remove restrictions. Where parents are forced to buy from specialist suppliers. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2223168/Parents-lose-52million-year-uniform-costs-state-schools-force-spend-169-skirt.html
  5. BBA figures show that April was the first month of 2013 where bank customers borrowed more than they paid off Consumer appetite for taking on new borrowing is still limited, according to the BBA. Photograph: Image Source/Alamy Consumers made more use of overdrafts in April than at any time this year, with borrowing outstripping repayments to the tune of £297m, according to figures from the British Bankers' Association (BBA). April was the first month of 2013 that bank customers borrowed more than they paid off and the largest figure for net borrowing since August 2011, with the exception
  6. A Labour MP has proposed a bill that would limit the total amount of interest paid on credit card borrowing to prevent debts from “spiralling” out of control. At the first reading of the Credit Card Debt Limit Bill 2012-13 on 27 November, Yvonne Fovargue explained that under the bill, credit card companies would be required to discharge a debt when three times the equivalent of the principal sum owed has been paid in interest. She told parliament that while payday lenders have been the focus of media attention recently, credit card companies are responsible for causing detriment to a larg
  7. New MBNA customers can now transfer funds from their credit card accounts to their current accounts interest free for 22 months. The firm is offering its 'longest ever' period of 0 per cent interest on both balance transfers and money transfers through the MBNA Platinum credit card, beating its previous best offer by two months. MBNA is one of very few credit card providers to offer money transfers, and the only to offer an introductory 0 per cent interest rate through its various cards, which includes the ones it provides through Virgin and AA zero cards.

  8. Wonga, the online loans company, is facing questions about whether its checks to prevent children from borrowing cash are adequate following evidence that it has allowed under 18s to build up debts. It is the high-interest loans company which came from nowhere to become one of the fastest growing finance firms in Britain. Wonga has faced widespread criticism over its interest rates, allegedly heavy-handed debt collection methods and, most recently, its £24 million shirt sponsorship deal Newcastle United football club, which some say will tempt impressionable young fans to get into debt.
  9. An anonymous insider from one of Britain's biggest lenders – aside from Barclays – explains how he and his colleagues helped manipulate the UK's bank borrowing rate. Neither the insider nor the bank can be identified for legal reasons. It was during a weekly economic briefing at the bank in early 2008 that I first heard the phrase. A sterling swaps trader told the assembled economists and managers that "Libor was dislocated with itself". It sounded so nonsensical that, at first, it just confused everyone, and provoked a little laughter. Before long, though, I was drawing up presentations
  10. Credit card lending has contracted by the biggest monthly amount since 2006, Bank of England figures showed today. Borrowers appear to be finally paying down some of what is owed on plastic - but the figures appear to show a switch to more borrowing on loans. And it also unclear how much of the fall in card borrowing is down to banks merely writing off the money. Separate Bank of England data shows an average £6million has been written off every day this year.
