Hi - Peter I can concur with DX - Welcome are the pits!!!

 

Before doing anything with these people you need to level the playing field - send them a CCA request - enclose a £1 postal order and send to their head office in Nottingham.

 

The reson for doing this is you need to see what Welcome have got - namely a lot of the time Welcome do not have an original copy of your CCA - without that they cannot do ANYTHING.

 

Next is report them to OFT and Trading Standards - believe me both bodies KNOW about Welcome and their behaviour.

 

In the meantime do you have a copy of the agreement if so can you scan and upload it using photobucket so we can see it - there may be things we can do to help.

 

If you can do this remember to block out any personal details but leave the figures in.

Hi there, Welcome would need to get a court order to arrest your wages. They would have to take you to court, get a CCJ and then if you defaulted on that they could ask for an attachment of earnings - even then you have the chance to defend and ask to make payments yourself.

 

Are you able to make even small payments towards the loan? If so you need to write to Welcome enclosing a budget sheet showing what you can pay. If you need help with this, just shout :)
