  1. Good afternoon, I have been a regular user of PDL's for several years and am now looking at getting control of my finances and clearing my remaining debts. I have made poor financial decisions over the last few years which i blame a bit on a bit of gambling and drinking - both issues that are now firmly in check. i just wondered if i am eligible for a PDL irresponsible claim: my current debts are below - all i have borrowed from previously. also i have 4 defaulted debts on my credit file from 2014 so i'm sure this would have come up on a credit check. In total there are 18 othe
  2. I emailed Oakam about 6 weeks ago regarding my irresponsible lending claim against them. They wrote back a little over a month ago saying they needed four weeks to investigate and to expect a full response within eight weeks. That was 5 weeks ago. This morning I got an email from Lantern Debt Recovery Services Ltd. saying Oakam had sold my loan to them and I was to deal directly with Lantern from now on. What should I do now? Just wait for Oakam to respond or start the whole thing again with Lantern or go to the FOS?
  3. Had a cr@pone card, (Aqua) defaulted around £280, (£200 limit) been paying £1 a month now down to £218. Two months after defaulting on the first Cr@pone card, managed to obtain another from Cr@pone, again £200 limit, defaulted, been paying £1 a month since. Is their any scope in an IRL claim? Or shall I just suck it up and continue payments for the life of the debt? TIA...Boo
  4. Hi all, I just wondered if anyone had gone up against Amigo Loans in irresponsible lending cases. i have had a few loans from 2015-2017 with various top ups just wondering if i might have a case? just checked what i had 3250 16/05/2012 2250 11/09/2014 4250 03/04/2015 5000 29/04/2016 was in a DMP with payplan during the first two loans started missing payments around 03/09/2015 for a few months as was in financial difficulty
  5. Hi all, I was posting about CCA request which led to unearthing my other accounts and I was advised to start another thread in this forum as I may be able to get my PDL wiped under the irresponsible lending rules. I have the following to my name: EuroCashNet (Quick Quid) £770 Instant Cash Loans (Month End Money/ Payday UK) £300 I have been paying towards these on a DMP and i'm due to make a payment in the next couple of days. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
  6. Hello some may remember my posts before where i have made IRL complaint with several companies as i recover from my gambling addiction, can someone give advice on how to respond to Oakam now? i have attached their response thank you i have referred this to ombudsman but now they are saying " The letter we have sent to you on 6 July 2018 did offer a resolution to your complaint. For clarity, your complaint was upheld. At this time, you have not yet paid back the principle sum you have received so we cannot offer you a refund. However, the interest due on
  7. Hello all, really hoping for some advice on my story, will try keep it short as much as possible! i am going to be brutally honest i developed a gambling addiction about 6 years ago, what started out as fun soon became addictive. one loan turned into another and then payday loans started which were so easy to get ( i know there is responsibility on my side but if you have never been inside a gamblers mind it doesnt work the same way as a normal person when it comes to finding the next " loan " ) i am now taking steps to recover from this as all my family knows in the meantime
  8. Dear Forum Members, I used to be in a mess getting by on PD loans and had up to three concurrent ones Thankfully with the help of family members I managed to pay them off. At least I now pay off my debts with no interest ... I recently found out out about your website and decided to make a claim for irresponsible lending. Both QQ and Wonga rejected by claim so I went to the ombudsman. As some of my loans were more than six years old, QQ replied that they will not deal with them. The ombudsman has offered me two options: Continue claiming for all loans which will take mor
  9. Hi Just received my credit file and after getting into a bad financial situation I have a total of 19 defaults on my credit file!, 11 are due to drop of this year and 3 next year the rest are around 2022, for the latter do you think my credit file will improve If I pay them of so they are marked as satisfied? or should I just wait, none of them are chasing me for payment at the minute Just edited to add one is for a mobile phone debt that I was paying for 2 years at £35 per month, it says I owe £550.00 now
  10. Hi all. I had a loan with Mr Lender. I emailed today regarding a claim for irresponsible lending as I have issues with problem gambling. I have stopped gambling and taking it one day at a time. I had a reply within the hour. They said they carried out proper checks and I had no defaults or problems in the last three years. I already had two loans open with sunny and one with money boat. My credit card was over its limit and I was overdrawn. They stated that the installments that are due are never over 12 per cent of disposable income. But the next se
  11. All, Continuing on with my IR claims, I had a reply from Peachy who admitted they never carried out credit checks as there was no requirement! The question I have is because its so old and has dropped from my file and is statute barred, is it worth continuing? I still get the odd threatening email from MMF. Here is their 'full and final reply' Dear, We are writing to you in response to your complaint we received on 21/01/2018. We have investigated your complaint competently, diligently and impartially. We have assessed the subject matter of the comp
  12. Hi you lovely helpful people, I have just found out that my brother has a loan with Safetynet credit. He owes nearly £600 and is at breaking point because the interest is increasing faster than he can pay it back. He has been using them for well over a year and has borrowed and paid back thousands. I am pretty sure that it could be classed as irresponsible lending because he is not working and is claiming benefits instead. Safetynet know this because apparently they log into his online banking! Is it worth him complaining and trying to work out a deal to pay back over a
  13. Hi, Since September last year, I have been pursing claims against a total of 17 Payday Loan providers whom I had taken various loans from during the period 2010 to 2014. Of the 17 providers, 6 have settled directly with me and I have currently have 9 claims lodged with the FOS. The FOS have stated that they are currently trying to decide whether they are able to consider loans taken out more than 6 years before the start of an irresponsible lending claim, and cannot provide any timescales for the resolution of the issue. Does anyone have any guidance on a likely timescale f
  14. Hi, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone has successfully claimed a refund for irresponsible lending, even if it was over 6 years previous? I've e-mailed a complaint to Wonga as I was taking out a loan month after month from May 2010 - June 2013. The majority of loans I had taken out were on the same day as the previous loan was repaid - usually in the region of £500. I made a spreadsheet with dates my loans were taken out, credit amount, amount repaid, total in interest/fees and dates I repaid them. There were 3 occasions I had to set up a payment plan and the day
  15. Hi, We have a PDL which is not really affordable. We had to borrow £500 due to unexpected bills etc and not enough money for food etc at Christmas so we took out this loan. I know they charge extortionate interest rates which is fair enough but as we borrowed so much we had to have a longer repayment period (6 months) and in total we will be repaying over £1000!! We are really struggling to repay this and yes we did know at the time and yes we did tick the box to say it is affordable but it means we are in the situation where we have run out of food and not enough money to
  16. Hi I first took out a pdl in 2014 but paid it off early. however when I was struggling in 2016 I was heavily into them and sometimes had 4 or 5 going at the same time. I once had 3 with Sunny running concurrently. I think I have a record of all the loans I took out in the last 2 years Do I have a reasonable claim?
  17. Howdy, I got myself into a real mess with payday loans, going back to divorce/unemployment in 2009. At its worst, between May 2012 and January 2015 I had nearly 140 loans with over a dozen lenders, in an endless bucket brigade of borrowing from one to repay another. I walked away from the whole toxic lot in January 2015 and am now redressing the situation. From May 2012 to October 2013 I borrowed 10 times from Payday Express - deferring, refinancing, reborrowing etc. 10/8/17 - Sent formal complaint requiring refund of interest (£968.97) + 8% interest (£331.21) + removal of adverse
  18. Hi, its taken me a while to finally come to terms with and finally admit defeat to the payday loans and debt I have aquired over the last few years. I have a number of outstanding debts. PiggyBank - 592 Safetynetcredit - 189 Wageday Advance - 140 Payday UK - 488 Satsuma - 64 Mr Lender and Vivus - Combined at 914 (sold on to MMF so unsure at the moment of the individual debts) Natwest overdraft - 2,000 These were loans taken out from 2015-2016 and I have still not paid them off or made any real dent in what I owe due to very low monthly repayments that have been
  19. Hi first time posting on here. I like most got caught up in a payday loans trap, I took out multiple loans with wonga and quick quid, I was paying one off then borrowing from another to live on because the repayments was most of my wages, I am posting on here to try to claim the interest back on my loans as I believe they was leant irresponsibly, when I first started taking the loans out I was already in debt to Halifax due to a £1000 unauthorized overdraft, that's now sold to 1st credit. I have emailed wonga and quick quid this email. To whom It may concern,
  20. Hello all, they have never provided me with full list of loans ( i think I had more than 15 with them) here is their final word... QuickQuid Customer ID: xxxxxxxxxx We are in receipt of your complaint dated 16/08/2017 where you allege that QuickQuid irresponsibly lent to you. Specifically, you mention: • The loans were unaffordable • You were dependent on short term lending I’ve investigated your complaint and would like to bring your attention to the following points: Under the Financial Conduct Authority’s rules, complaints cannot be made where they concern an e
  21. I've posted on another thread about how I'm finally facing the payday loan mess I got myself into a few years ago. I've picked through the chaos and now have a picture of who I borrowed from and roughly how they were left – a lot of these loans were going on at the same time, and my credit file must have already been shot to bits as I was being approved applications. What I'm confused about however is how to proceed with an irresponsible lending complaint if there are still amounts outstanding, or if it has been sold on? It all seems so *messy* and as more time passes the foggier it
  22. Having so many Pay day loans (different thread already) and gambling I took stupidly on the same time unsecured Loan – contract with TM ADVANCES LTD. The interest its huge but when you are gambling you don’t think about now I need a help. They didn’t ask for Bank statement and I can see searches on my Credit file so was very clear how much debt I had already but I am not expecting that this one will be easy
  23. I am trying to go down the Irresponsible Lending route with all my payday loans. I complained to Lending Stream and they have very quickly come back to me with this; Dear --- --------- We write in reference to your recent correspondence. Please note that you borrowed 16 loans from Lending Stream, out of which 12 loans were closed successfully and the ownership of 4 loans (Ref. No: -------, -------, ------- and -------) has been transferred to the third party debt collection agency Asset Collections & Investigations Limited (ACI). Hence, we would request y
  24. I'm just wondering if this is in breach of responsible lending rules and if I could do anything about it. Years ago I realised I had a bit of a gambling problem and when having a slip what would happen is I would lose all of my money, then keep extending my overdraft to the maximum chasing the loss until everything had gone. Around 2 or 3 years ago I told Santander about this gambling problem and made it clear to them I wanted no overdraft facility on my account whatsoever. At the time they told me that overdraft facility had been removed from my account. I tried to create a £50 over
  25. Hey guys, I had a Crazy Clearance (JD Williams) catalogue, back in 2015. It defaulted in 2016 and is now with Lowell. Looking back, I kinda cannot believe how month after month my credit line was going up automatically, even though my credit history back in 2015 was rather rubbish! I was thinking if there's any point of complaining or trying to raise this issue as irresponsible lending with OC. Not really sure how or what good could it do now tbh. The history of the account (credit used/credit limit): 2015 APR 101/125 MAY 89/225 JUN 218/325 JUL
