  1. Good Morning to everyone here at CAG, another one of the many issues we've had to face at least it's not a council issue as before. I'm here to warn everyone and I have been a bit lazy and not searched the forum for any related articles, but I do feel this information needs to be passed on. This information concerns several business's and so I will Bold each one and to why I'm warning people of this. I will also provide as much information as I can, including links "BUT PLEASE DON'T USE THESE COMPANIES" The reason I'm posting this, is due to my wife. I run my own Small Business
  2. This is a thread to contain my payday loans, my original one is here: HERE Here is a list of the payday loans i taken out from 2011-2014 (ish) The last contact i made with them was December 2017 as instructed by Redbridge Finance a company who was "supposidly" going to help me claim compensation from them. Wonga Quickquid Payday express Mr lender Myjar The money shop The cheque centre To name but a few, there are probably more but it really hurts my head when i try and think back. I am not being chased for any of the above debts at the moment, and
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. I'm hoping you people can give m3 some advice. A few years ago (2014-15) I took out several payday loans, the first from Safetynet credit totalling £9072.14, Wageday advance totalling £2970 Myjar totalling £1800 and 24/7 moneybox totalling £1908. These loans have been repaid in full except the Safetynet credit one (I was made redundant). I was wondering if I would be able to claim anything back from them. I have 3 young children, and have been diagnosed with Bipolar type 2, intrusive thoughts and borderline personality disorder since 2013. I'm rubbish wit
  6. Hi there, I am currently in a 5 year IVA and completed 3 years so far Appox 30% of IVA was payday loans and I am now seeing many ads from no win/no fee companies claiming that they can get back not only roll over interest but more compensation too? Please can you advise if this is a good thing and also if its possible to do this while an iva is active? Thanks
  7. Hello, I had taken a number of payday loans in the past, in particular the period of 2014-2015. Most of them are settled or just ignored, but there are a couple that keeps getting chased. One is for Cheque Centre which has been bought up by Lantern (Formerly motormile) and the other is The MoneyShop who I'm now getting chased by BWLEgal on behalf of PRAC Financial Limited. Now, so far I've just ignored them, get standard threat emails etc. Heard nothing regarding the moneyshop one for months until now. However, is it worth making a complaint and the proceeding to FOS for ireespo
  8. Hello - I am new and clueless so thank you to this site and to any who respond for any help. I have received a letter after several previous horrible threats from the same stating that they have initiated a court claim. Assuming they are telling the truth and the claim arrives soon is there anything I should do now or should I wait to make a post when it arrives? Many thanks
  9. Hello All, I’ve a feeling that I’ll need to go to the Ombudsman but would be grateful for any assistance.: Long Story short, I approached PayDay UK/MEM Capital last July 2017 and requested a settlement figure as I released equity in a property I own to clear my feet. I was given the figure and when the funds cleared acouple of weeks later, I received 2 text messages (16/8/18) 1st text said I was £8 short due to accruing interest since the initial settlement figure was issued, and literally acouple of hours later I received another text saying my loan was settled in full. As a
  10. So I had a phone call just now... From a number 01639 617412 Claiming to be "We Take Them On" - They asked me had i ever taken a PDL? I played along and said "Yes"... "Well have you ever had to roll them over?" He asks... I stopped him right there... "Dude, you do know you are talking to someone who has written a full guide on reclaiming PDLs for free right?" He stopped dead... I offered to send him a link to CAGs free guide... He said "No Im Okay thank you..." The call then ended... In which I laughed... He wast happy when I told him I help do it for fr
  11. I took out a payday loan (not wise, i know!) with PAYDAY UK/MEM CONSUMER FINANCE LTD. I have not repaid the loan after coming into financial difficulties.The amount outstanding is £516.00 Apart from the original interest which was apllied to the borrowed amount, they haven't added on any extra charges or interest at present.The debt has now been passed to a DCA - EQUIBET. I am now in a position to pay back the debt in installments and asked PAYDAY UK for their bank details in which to start paying them.They refused to give me their details stating that they no longer have my detail
  12. A payday loan was taken out back in may 2012 with paydayuk when in financial hardship of £400 which increased to £516 with interest. It was then passed to various dca's before nothing was heard from the end of 2012 to 2016. Then paydayuk sent a letter saying the debt was sold to PRAC in jan 2017. Then PRAC sent a letter saying they had acquired the debt and were using Bw legal to represent the debt. Bw legal have sent a few letters including offering a 20% discount. Their latest letter says that if i don't setup an arrangement in the next 14 days then the account may be
  13. 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
  14. Hi, In September 2017 I lodged an Irresponsible Lending Claim with PDUK, who made an offer of £2,600 to settle the claim. I accepted this offer on the condition that all loans that were deemed to irresponsibly lent were removed from my credit file. They confirmed via email: Thank you for your email on XX January. In response to your query, I can confirm upon receiving your signed acceptance your credit file will be amended to remove the loans we have deemed to be irresponsibly lent to you. We can accept your acceptance via email in one of 3 ways. You ca
  15. 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
  16. Hi all. I have a couple of old payday loan debts that date back to late 2012 that are both Defaulted on my credit files. In the absence of a time machine, would like to get these resolved and marked as satisfied in full. I have managed to find original credit agreements for both of them. Paydayuk - £100 loan with £129 to be repaid. It is showing as satsified on Callcredit and assigned to Prac Financial on others. I suspect Prac bought it like they do and just wrote it off? 247moneybox/active securites - £100 loan. £176 to be originally repaid.
  17. Hi There I have recently recieved a letter from PRA group regarding an old payday loan i took out with lending stream back in March 2010, which it says is the date of loan agreement on the letter. Am i right in saying this debt is now statute barred? Do i contact PRA group at all or do i just ignore the letter? Thanks in advance
  18. I have had several payday loans in the past some of which I shouldn't have been given. Can you tell me how to start a claim and what the process is?
  19. Hi everyone, I have a couple of threads on here regarding various debts but I have been informed that I need a separate thread to deal with my payday loan issue. for the last 18 months myself and my husband who were both self employed have been in a bad way financially, mainly due to lack of work but also we both struggle with mental health issues which has made the situation ten times worse. Over this timescale we have had period of weeks where we have had no income and due to being threatened with eviction for non payment of rent and with no money for basic needs like food, we
  20. 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
  21. Hello All In 2012 I took out a payday loan with PaydayUK for the sum of £400. At the time of taking the loan out I was on a low income and I wasn’t able to pay my rent I took out the loan to cover rent costs - stupid idea I know but at the time I had no other way of getting the money I didn’t pay this loan back as I couldn’t afford too. I vaguely remember contacting them to advise them of this but they were really unhelpful and I just ended up not paying and I heard nothing for 5 years. In December 2016 I received a letter from PRAC/BW Legal saying they ha
  22. 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,
  23. 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

  25. Hi guys, Hoping you can help me, while at uni I like many had to live on these damn things, I would pay one off then get another one out the same day to keep on top of the money which had just been paid back, The other day I got a letter from Moriarty Law Solicitors threating court action, like an idiot I agreed to pay back 50 a month to them for a 450 balance from a 300 pound loan, I can not afford to do this I made one payment and then stopped it. Today I called up and explained the situation and the customer service agent was so rude!! Quickquid unfairly
