  1. Someone said to me today that they were putting cucumber slices on their eyes. I thought to myself is this a joke. But then i checked things out.

  2. Hi I'm new to the forum and the reason I am posting here is to seek advice regarding a rather large debt accumulated in Cyprus, which was originally taken out as a student loan. The debt in question is in the region of £40,000 and has already been restructured once, with an interest rate still being charged on it (close on 10%.) The loan is secured to my knowledge with a property, and the lender also insists on myself and the other two creditors (parents) taking out life insurance from a Cypriot insurer, which is very costly. What options are there available to me, as a British citizen, to deal with this debt (e.g. via a consolidation or the equivalent of an IVA), seeing as the bank is inflexible on payment reductions and I may be changing jobs in the near future, which will considerably reduce my income? I want to avoid bankruptcy due to the property tied to the loan and the fact that I work in the financial services sector, where it can be a kiss of death in terms of employment opportunities; I also believe it'd make renting property here harder? Any assistance on the topic would be appreciated. If it is of any help I am a British citizen but also possess Cypriot citizenship.
  3. Hi there. Back in 2011 I had a former student overdraft with Natwest totalling £1600, after a few financial difficulties I had breached my overdraft to the point that it was at £2100, having returned to University after working for a few years I did not have the money to settle the amount over and bring the overdraft in line till I got my next student loan, which was a few months away. Having looked into claiming back of bank charges I believed I may be able to claim them back under the hardship clause, as I was a student, unemployed and stuck in a vicious cycle of bank charges. I calculated my bank charges, which totaled close to £2000 over a period of about 5 years, compiled the relevant letter and sent the request off to Natwest. Rather than replying with a rejection of the claim or further discussion Natwest replied with a letter saying that as I am in financial difficulty to help me they will close the account and organise a repayment plan with me, I spoke to them to dispute this as there was no way I would be able to repay the OD anytime soon. Wrongly I buried my head in the sand and the OD has been passed from Natwest to numerous different debt collectors, who have in turn passed it on to other debt collectors. The debt is now owned by Robinson Way who are requesting £2,399.88. Either in full or by repayment plan, and threatening a home visit in 7 days. Could some body offer some advice, this account defaulted around September 2011.
  4. Pretty shocking,when it was the Insurance companies themselves who were bleating about referral fees adding to the costs of increased premiums. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-2268765/Admiral-risks-fury-law-firm-tie-save-accident-fee-deals.html
  5. A new customer charter published by the payday lending industry has come under fire from critics who say it hasn’t gone far enough. The charter, which was drawn up by the four main trade associations for payday and short term lenders, represents over 100 companies – including big names like Wonga – and around 90 per cent of the total market. It launches a new set of commitments to raise standards and improve customer services, but consumer organisations have accused the charter of not going far enough. The charter fills a commitment made by the associations to the Consumer Affairs Minister Norman Lamb MP on 24 May, and by 26 November it will be available to consumers on lender’s websites and in-store where they have high street branches. The code is voluntary, but lenders who breach it could face expulsion from their association. Speaking on behalf of all of the trade associations, Caroline Walton, President of the Consumer Finance Association, said: ‘This is an important step towards making short term lending more transparent and setting the highest standards for our customers’.
