  1. Hi please help Having spent over a week reading posts i am more confused than ever,i went to the bank asking if they could help with a loan to buy a taxi as i could not find any work after losing my job.I was very stupid really, but they gave me a loan of £7,500 on our joint account on my wife's part time income but she was not present and did not consent to it.Basically the business failed as the car i got was in the garage more than on the road and cost me every penny we had + i made a total lose. When we unable to pay for these loans anymore(i already had 1 and so did my wife with same bank)i contacted them for help and thought at first they seemed very helpful,they said not to worry they would put me on to a company that dealed in IVA's (payplan)plan plan took £289 of my wife a month and £189 off me,this was a little better than what we was paying the bank but after nearly 2 years of this and seeing the statements that showed the bank + max credit (was virgins cc mbna must have sold)we was barely paying anything to the bank or MC some months as little as .18p. We have failed our IVA and have received letters confirming this.We asked PP for help on a few occasions and the best they would do was drop £5 a month which was a kick in the teeth as in that 2 years our expenses had gone though the roof.The new job i got after the failed taxi business has ended(2 yr contract) Now the bank has sent a letter to me about the overdraft but still not received anything about the loan which my wife has, the letter was dated 3/4/13 recieved on the 11/4/13 and we have not heard from Max Credit YET.We have been to see a advice person from a local charity who has said for my wife to go Bankrupt,she also said with my debts been less than 15 k they should have advised me to go for a debt relief order and that is what she is saying i should now do. Ok to the point now as we have no assets and a car we need for work and school which is less than £900 should we go ahead with BR or should we try and fight this by asking for original paperwork or sar which i no nothing about yet or should we just go with the advice center and after the BR is over the 6 yr make will our credit rating start to improve,and can Debt people still chase us for money. (Deep Breath)I have tried to put as much info in this and i thank anyone that reads this and i will answer any questions if i have not got it all in,but my head is spinning now. Kind Regards Mark & Clare P.S my wife still unhappy about bank giving me loan on the strength of her wages which she believes this was illegal.They included our tax credits which that lovely man Mr Cameron has since stopped. also our income is soily my wife's wage which is only P/T and we get very little child tax credit.
