Hi everyone,

I am, like many of you in dispute with WF. It's because in 2006 I took out an unsecured loan for £3000, then in 2007 topped it up by £1600, however they lumped on PPI this time which was not on the original loan (PPI £1400) without my knowledge. In fact it wasn't until I SAR'd them that I became aware of this - the monthly payments are currently £290. I have paid back just under £6000 to date, although after a period of unemployment I am now in £900 in arrears, and as I am sure many of you will know the settlement figures are totally bewildering as mine is currently standing at £5700 - so that's a total of £11,700 to repay £4600 originally borrowed.

My original dispute was missold PPI, and I raised an official complaint in March of this year. When I didn’t received any response by mid May, I again wrote to complain, and in protest told WFS I was now going to stop making full payments and in protest and as a “gesture of goodwill” £100 per month (all signed for delivery). This alerted their local office, who continually called me while I was at work, and even called at my house while I was out. When I eventually spoke to them, they said that if my complaint was PPI, I should make payment less this, which equated to £215 per month. I declined this offer and said unless they refunded the PPI in full, and all it’s accrued interest which is impossible to work out by me, I would continue to make only £100 per month payments.

To my surprise the day I had this conversation with WFS local office, that evening at 9:30 the local branch’s manager hand delivered copies of my paperwork to my home. He didn’t knock, and I only know it was the manager as the offices called me the day after and asked if I had received the paperwork, and informed me the account was “going out of branch” for collections – whatever that means. At this point I hadn’t inspected the paperwork.

Upon inspection of the hand delivered paperwork, I discovered a piece of paperwork that I had not seen before, this was a breakdown of the loan, a clear table showing the loan element and the PPI element, and to my absolute horror in my opinion had a poorly copied signature of mine, which was actually dated 3 days later than the rest of loan paperwork!

The day after this, I received a letter from WF head office, saying they will respond to my PPI complaint by the end of July. I have countered this today, and written to the particular person handling my complaint to ask for a full investigation into my opinion forged paperwork, and show them the copies I have received which is clear to see in my opinion is in totally different handwriting, especially the date which is in a total different format all together. My family tell me also to call the Police and report this as fraud, although I don’t know how seriously they will take this – anyone got advice on this?

Also, what I am really worried about is what will happen next with the account going “out of branch” for collections. Does anybody know if they will try and take me to court quickly for arrears and under-payments, and turn this unsecured loan into a CCJ and then turn the debt into a charge on my house, which happened to a friend of mine last year with another company. Please let me know anyone who has any advice to help me with this unravelling nightmare.

Thanks,

Dusty

Hi Dusty.....quite a story, it could potentially be fraud, can you retrace the forged signature back to one you had used previously ? It would seem evident with your job situation that had you have known if there was PPI you would have made a claim !! (have you tried ?) In the meantime you MUST cancel the PPI....they cannot simply say, carry on paying without it....!!! and i'd definitely report this to the FSA, OFT and your local MP.....(who should support you)...please keep us posted on this, you have made an official dispute, they need to answer this, (from a personal experience they are NOT good at doing this), if they attempt legal action please DO shout....

PLEASE NOTE - I am not a legal expert, what is stated is my own opinion and from what I have learnt from this forum and my own experiences.

Just to let you know, I have today (and it took a bit of finding) found a fraud specialist in graphology who I am sending all my information to (copies) for him to write a report.

 

Thanks for the heads-up on that one.

I have sent off my info to obtain a full graphology report, it takes about a week and it's going to cost £150, well worth it I feel, and I am pondering not paying them the token £100, as I did tell them it was a gesture of goodwill, whereas I don't think there's any goodwill left now I have found in my opinion that they have forged my signature.

 

As it's gone very quiet on the WF front, I need to start proceedings before they come on to me for arrears and start proceedings themselves.

 

Does anyone know what I need to do to start this?

 

Really appreciate any help on this.

I am due in court soon with a case against WFS. The court case is regarding how an unsecured loan agreement I had, had PPI fradulently added. I only found this out when requesting a SAR and found a additional schedule contract dated totally different with a signature pertaining to be mine. Which I am challenging with both a qualified hand writing expert, and also hopefully some common sense based as the dating of the PPI schedule versus the loan agreement.

 

WFS had denied this all along, and have tried every angle, doorstep visit, Lewis Group, UK Default Recovery etc, etc. My WFS file is bulging on all their many cross claims and contradictions by them.

 

Anyway, this is been going on for 2 years now, and we are now finally at trial stage on or before 18th December 2010, so it will be interesting to see what the Judge says. Incidentally WFS have missed the deadline for pre-trial checking 2nd November 2010, so it'll be interesting what the judge says regarding this. I should know in the next few days and I am claiming in excess of £7k so wish me luck.

 

However, the reason for the post is to alert other WFS sufferers to a new strategy WFS have called "The Project" under the guise of the "Brideshead Team".

 

The are already up to underhand tricks, sending post dated letters offering PPI refunds, as an example mine was dated 18th October 2010 and yet arrived some 9 days later 27th October 2010, and yet offering the nearly £3k PPI refund with a strict 14 day response deadline accompanied with a pre-paid 2nd class envelope, specifically designed in my opinion to miss a response deadline anyway, even if it was correct!

 

As it happened their figures were stotally mis-calculated anyway (short of my actual paid PPI by some way), and they even claimed I still owed them money, abeit they did get a same day response from me sent recorded delivery putting them straight on this matter.

 

Today, (11th November 2010) I have received a further letter "our records show, you have not returned the acceptance form cofirming whether you accept our final decision (re PPI refund)" it goes on saying you can call their team etc with an email address also [email protected]

 

I checked with Royal Mail, all signed for at their end, so an email with all attachements batted back over to them today via the email address given. Proving it was received and they are the ones using these underhand non-response tactics, which hopefully can help compound my court case

 

It really is shocking that if Cattles are truly trying to straighten their loan book to either sell or re-launch the business, plus trying to work out what actually is legit or not, and what has been buiried by ex WFS staff whilst their business was in carnage, then surely "The Project" team then should not act like similar Monkey's (probably the same ones who are left) trying to trick customers out of PPI refunds, denying responses and basically blatantly telling lies to suit what must be their sales new targets.

 

I feel despite everything else that is going on with me v WFS, additionally I feel the FSA, the FoS, the Chairman of Cattles, Trading Standards Nottingham, ehe Government and anyone else who CAG readers feel should know are going to receive a campign from me to clean their business up for once and all.

Yes i have had an offer from the project - or in house crap cleaners as they should be called.

 

The offer is crap - calculations are incorrect - charges they have added because i refused to pay for the PPI that they now admit was missold are still being added.

 

Have told them to foxtrot oscar - will calculate it and take it to court myself.
