    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed. 
    • Here is what exposes Johnson & Co Commission document, makes for sober reading   Wonder if Snake Oil Singham has read and digested it?   https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/brexit_files/info_site/com_2020_324_2_communication_from_commission_to_inst_en_0.pdf
    • Must be a positive if the Insurers are now using the legislation as it was intended. It is just that I have not heard of it being used for Car Insurance, as the 22% comes from the Insurers rating calculations, which is not available information to the Policyholder. With Home Insurance, if you Insured a Building for £100k, when it should have been Insured for £122k, it is easier to grasp.   The Insurers would have issued the policy documents clearly showing that no motoring offences had been included within the premium calculation and the OP has had 5 months to correct the record with Insurers before the accident.   Perhaps probe the Insurers on the 22%. Can they provide evidence from their Underwriting rating guidance that this is the extra premium for 2 SP30's.
    • Moorcroft are just a first DCA that Natwest use, after Natwest have stopped chasing it.   The debt is still owned by Natwest and is currently sat with Moorcroft, but in a pile with many thousands of others.   If your new postal address is showing on your credit file, Moorcroft would have sent letters if they thought this was a priority debt to chase.     
    • We signed up to a credit reference agency.  Got an email this morning saying a search had been carried out in my husband’s name.  It’s by Moorcroft who are doing it on behalf of NatWest. Do we worry?  It’s been over 6 years since last payment and we wrote to NatWest in January advising of our new address.  They and Moorcroft both emailed an old email address which we have access to but never use asking us to confirm our address.  We didn’t respond to it.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi All.

 

Posting this thread on behalf of my housemate.

 

He defaulted on his loan with Welcome Finance around six months ago and has been having difficulties with them ever since.

 

He is not currently making any payments towards the outstanding balance and a CCA request has been sent, and a valid CCA returned. He also has an original copy of the agreement anyway.

 

He sent them a letter previously stating that he requires all communication to be in writing and further stated that their behavior was paramount to harassment.

 

They have visited the property on three occasions now asking to speak with him, they have also levied a variety of charges on this defaulted balance.

 

They have also previously started legal action, to which he was going to defend based on the charges, they then dropped the claim.

 

More recently this was received through the door:-

What do you advise he do now in regards to the above?

OMG..... can't believe that note was just dropped through the door. Is that illegal due to your personal details being available for house mates to see??

 

What if you were away and had neighbors popping round to look after your pets or something????

I'd let them continue with the claim, if he isn't earning much then an attachment of earnings isn't going to be granted for Welcome Finance, and you can use that appalling letter as evidence of their non-co-operation - it looks like a kids has written it rather than a reasonably educated adult.

 

I would take the letter to the local Citizens Advice Bureau and ask for their help - they should have somebody there who is experienced in dealing with these sharks - because Welcome prey on the lower end of the 'credit' market and clock up huge amounts of phony charges.

Hey, thanks for the replies. The note was in an envelope, with his first name written on it in pen, but that was it.

 

Hmmm, not sure of the best course of action. I think Welcome need to be slammed over this abuse of OFT guidelines.

Any further advice, suggestions to what response we should issue Welcome, or what action we should take?

Hi All.

 

Sorry to double post, but my other thread is not receiving much attention in the Welcome Finance sub thread, and I could do with some assistance in helping my house mate with an issue.

 

I've copied and pasted from my original thread below:

Update: Welcome Finance today called him at work demanding repayment.

 

Is the best course of action to complain to the OFT, then send an harrasment template letter to Welcome? They have also advised him that they are charging him £10 per phone call they make.

 

Is it worth doing a SAR and going down the reclaiming charges route?

Hi

 

You say you have a valid CCA and the original. It would be worth posting them here, minus any personal or otherwise identifiable info. Welcome agreements often fall well short of required standards.

 

A SAR is probably worth doing as well.

 

It would probably be worth moving back to the Welcome threads - there are some extemely knowledgable people there who will be able to provide a great deal of valuable help.
