  1. Hello, i have been helping a friend out who has Provident loans. He has had for years, so I gather. He has always worked but over the last year in particular is drowning with the debt, whilst paying what he can. Like a idiot last summer he even took 2 loans out with Satsuma to get through - and since defaulted on these. Provident hasn't been defaulted to date. I wrote off to Provident for him and complained about irresponsible lending as he's sure loans were paid off by taking new loans in most cases. After a couple of days a letter came back dismissing he's claim
  2. Hi all, This time last year my gran passed away. We have discovered this week after finally clearing out everything in the premises (extreme hoarder) that she was a customer of that lovely company we know as Provident. From the mountains of paper work I've looked through, I have found 23 legible statements first one with a date of March 2008 and last one December 2014 - The oldest of the paperwork (extremely water-damaged) have the provident logo's and date Nov 1999. We have counted every one of these and there's 121 (inc the 23 legible) - which works out at roughly 3-4 loans per
  3. Name of the Claimant ?PRA Group (UK) Limited Date of issue – top right hand corner of the claim form – this in order to establish the time line you need to adhere to. 26/10/2018 Date of issue XX + 19 days ( 5 day for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = XX + 14 days to submit defence = XX (33 days in total) - 28/11/2018 ^^^^^ NOTE : WHEN CALCULATING THE TIMELINE - PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DATE ON THE CLAIMFORM IS ONE IN THE COUNT [example: Issue date 01.03.2014 + 19 days (5 days for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 19.03.2014 + 14 days to submit defence = 02.04.2014] = 33 days

  5. I've lurked here for many months and gained lots of useful advice. Many Thanks. I've joined ready for what may be the next step.... I've taken up the cudgels for my partners who is being harassed by Lowells Pariahs for an old £400 Provident debt she was saddled with by her ex partner. On my advice, she ignored months of Lowell Portfolio threatograms and discount offers to settle, then they wheeled out Lowells Solicitors, whom I imagine to be another minimum wage otherwise unemployable sat at an adjacent desk! I suspect they are cranking up as it appears to become statute barr
  6. I have just found out the level of my 69 year old mother's provident loan repayments. At the moment, she would appear to have 4 active loans and a weekly repayment of £110 per week whilst living on a pension. Surely there has to be some sort of irresponsible lending going on here? Most weeks, her fridge is almost running on empty and I'm lending money from time to time to help her pay things like rent, electricity and even to make sure that there is food in the fridge! I knew she had a loan, but I am shocked at the level of it. She cannot afford £400 a month, on a pension either
  7. Hi, I was wondering if it would be possible to get some advice please. Late 2011/ early 2012 (sorry I can't remember the exact date) I took a loan out through Providemt for about 300. I paid weekly to the lady collector who arranged the loan and then a new collector started working for them and I continued to pay him weekly (for about 4 weeks) until late mid 2012 when I was moving to a different county. At this point I paid my balance to the collector in cash as was the arrangement and moved away. Over the past few years I would occasionally get a 'debt' letter from Low

  11. Hi guys, hoping you can help. I've sent off my complaint to Provident about irresponsible lending, what i am wondering about is what would be refunded (if successful). From what i have read up on, it would be interest + 8% of that interest. So for example, one of my loans were £1600, over a period of 104 weeks with an interest rate of 181.4%. Using an interest calculator online, it shows the interest on that loan would be £4,409.70 plus 8% of that which is £352.78, totalling £4,762.48. I just want to make sure because that seems an awful lot, considering i had 10+ lo

  13. Bit of help/advise needed. during a recent search through the credit file I came across a default registered by Lowell Financial a former Provident debt. following some threads on here first thought was to CCA them CCA'd them on 14.06.17 finally received a copy of a credit agreement and statement of account on 29/07/17. however I am dubious as signature doesn't look like mine, the agent I was dealing with back then was named Joan and never had any contact with the agent named on the credit agreement. also on the statement of account it states I mad

  16. Hey, I haven't posted on here in a long time but I have just received a Claim Form from Lowell Solicitors on behalf of Provident. I used to work in litigation, but that was 7+ years ago (unqualified legal assistant), so whilst I am familiar with small claims and county court processes, I am a little rusty all the same, so I hope to get some information from people in the know... The date of issue is 31/01 I have filed AOS I am calculating the date for the defence to be by 04/03. I have made a CCA request to Lowell Plus I have made a CPR 31.14 request to Lowel

  18. I have a number of accounts with provident that I stopped paying about 12 months ago. I was an agent for them for a very short time and took a number of loans out myself (stupid I know). I stopped working for them 2 years ago when I was forced to take out a loan due to me loosing the money I collected when I had to take it into the office to show the collections on a weekly basis. I was so upset by this I stopped working for them in my part time position as an agent. I have had numerous calls which I have ignored but have just got a default letter from vanquish fresh
  19. Good Morning! Does anyone know how I can stop a door collection agent from Provident attending my home? I missed a payment collection date and was unable to notify the agent as my phone died. The agent then attended my property 4 times that evening knocking loudly from 9pm. Has anyone dealt with Provident before? The whole doorstep collection process for the sake of £100 loan is getting ridiculous. If I can come to an arrangement and deal directly with them that would be ideal. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks very much. Kind regards P
  20. Hi , just a brief question ... my parents , both over 70 and on pension are both gambling every penny and more on the fruit machines ( though as most addicts do they deny it ) and are regularly taking out Provident loans to support this ... I reclaimed nearly £2k in bank charges for them which was gone within the month as well as over £2k of Provident loans ... they have been on the phone to the agent again this morning so no doubt more will follow ! I have told the agent several times that they are gambling the money and she said she wouldn't give them any more - but she has ! and k
  21. I have had over £500 worth of loans from what was originally greenwoods but they merged with provident so i'm told. So when my original caller quit after the merger provident sent 5 different callers over a 7 week period and each one i asked to see their identification as anybody would, but each one of them said we don't carry id as it isn't company policy, so i told them no id no payment. They could have been anybody and i don't pay to anybody on my doorstep without id. In recent months i have been recieving letters from lowell threatening court action and bailiffs, and i told them same as i

I had a old mobile which i fall behind (passed on to lowell) I phoned the company to make payments to where they said i had a outstanding provident loan this was new to me as i said to them i have never had a loan from provident.
