Victims are seeing their bank accounts emptied after fraudsters set up fake accounts to take out Wonga loans and use stolen card details to push the debt onto unsuspecting consumers, a This is Money investigation has found. In a series of cases raising concerns about the payday lender's security checks, the first victims know is when they notice that money has been taken out of their account by Wonga. When they call their banks to report the crime they are told to contact the payday lender directly, yet those who have come to This is Money for help have typically found it to be slow to help - leaving them missing almost £1,000 or more for long periods.

I have been getting a great deal of advice from these forums and this is my first post as I have encountered something that I have not seen mentioned here before. In order to see my "comprehensive" credit report signed up for this "30 day free trial" with fraudlock.co.uk after seeing them advertised on moneysupermarket.com and only after signing up does it become apparent that all they actually offer is a link to Equifax, and you have to sign up again there. I immediately tried to cancel the account without signing up to Equifax. I have tried to cancel five times by email and twice using their online contact form, but have not been contacted back and the account has not been cancelled. I have also called three times and "receptionists" answer claiming that there is nobody that I can speak to and nobody that can cancel the account or look into the matter. One of these receptionists was extremely rude and slammed the phone down on me. I have had no reply to my messages and no callback as promised. I now have to cancel my debit card so that this dubious company cannot try and take money from my account. Be very wary about signing up to a free trial with this company. They are not what they appear to be. What bothers me the most about this company is that the operate under the name of Fraudlock, yet seem to be fraudsters.:mad2: Has anyone else had experience with this company and is there any way to get this account cancelled?
I have received a letter from the Marston Group High Court Enforcementdemanding full payment of money being £515.00 for bailiffs fees in relation to an ‘unpaid car insurance fine’, however and my wife are with a debt charity company called ‘Christians Against Poverty’ which made regular cheque payments to the Marston Group of a £100.00 each month, CAP have paid this since the 24th of March 2011 and so far paid £400.00 pounds, leaving £140.00 outstanding from the original £540.00 debt. Marston Group have cashed theses cheques’ from C.A.P obtaining £400.00; now 4 months later after happily accepting my money, have since decided to refuse to accept anymore payments but have neither contacted me, nor have CAP had any correspondence off them. Therefore having wilfully and unlawfully taken the matter back to court, in the effect to add on additional charges of attending fees, a distress warrant fee and more seriously, falsely misrepresenting the case for the debt of £140.00 to Manchester Magistrates Court, resulting in my debt now totalling £515.00 with the intent to fraudulently obtaining more money.
