    • I'm afraid that I'm not following any of the threads and not at all aware of the issues. However, I can tell you that there is never a downside to sending an SAR to anybody. It's all free. It takes 30 days and it's always wise to get it going earlier than later

    • After reading Dixon2094 FAST TAX REBATES DECEPTION & FRAUD I am a victim of Alan O’Hara and his company Fast Tax Rebates (FTR) deception and fraudulent activity. I am extremely worried as HMRC are demanding I repay £13,229.00 by 8/12/2021 of which I personally received only £4354 as I do not have the money.  I was referred by a friend who himself has discovered he has been deceived. I was led to believe that I could claim tax relief/rebate on work related expenses. After lots of searching,  I have, only this morning, found this group and just read through the whole of this thread.  Question Please can you advise if I need to request SAR from HMRC and FTR and complete the other actions you advised? My action to date: 1. I have investigated and researched Alan Francis O’Hara (AFO). 2. Reported AFO deception and fraudulent activity to Action Fraud. No reply received to date. 3. Written to HMRC enclosing copies of: - all emails between myself and ‘Mike’, ‘Claire Marshall’; - AF form; - Copy of my bank Statement showing deposit from FTR. After finally speaking to HMRC yesterday who informed me that they have literally hundreds of cases where EIS is the scam that dishonest ‘tax agents’ have used. I have been advised to lodge a review/appeal against this HMRC decision which I am in the process of writing.  Question Any advice you can give me about writing the review/appeal would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks
    • Please could you start up your own thread on this issue. It's very important because it makes it easier for people to understand which piece of advice is given to who. Also, the more individual threats we have about this, the more significant it is to Google and the higher up in the rankings it will go and that will attract more attention. Also, every new thread which started here is sent out on our Twitter feed and that will also attract a lot more attention Please will you start a new thread

Why did you send for it? :confused:

 

eg. was it to obtain statements, account info, etc?

 

What have they sent you?

Any knowledge I possess or advice I proffer is based solely on my experiences in the University of Life. Please make your own assessment of legality, risks & costs before taking any action.

Hi Borolad,

 

Are you looking to claim back penalty charges? Was this a mortgage with Swift or a loan? Did you take out PPI at all?

 

We are awaiting the response to our SAR from Swift (40 days up next week) and will be looking to reclaim penalty charges and PPI which we believe was mis-sold.

 

Did they respond within the time frame to your request?

 

Will follow your progress with interest if that's ok with you:D

 

Good luck with whatever you are hoping to achieve!

 

Regards,

Hi

 

Sorry for delay in answering back, problems with my internet connection (deleted my modem by mistake). I am in my local library at the moment.

 

I asked for my SAR from Swift in July 08. They sent me history notes, transaction history and repayment record.

 

The reason I asked for the SAR was that everyone I knew had asked for their SAR so it sounded like a good idea. The reason I first posted this tread was that I am unsure what to look for in the SAR.

Here is my letter to Swift dated 30th March

Credit Control Department

Swift Advances

Arcadia House

Dear Sirs,

RE:

I write with reference to the above numbered account to ask for your assistance with the current arrears situation which arose due to my experiencing unexpected financial strain over the last few months as a result of being unable to work through injury.

I agreed to pay £217.72 per month and have maintained this arrangement for the last month. However, I had to go into hospital for surgery to correct the problem and will find it difficult to continue to make these payments over the next few months – I will, of course, pay whatever I can during that time. Please see affixed letter from my doctor.

However, when I am recovered from the operation I will be able to go back to work and my earnings will return to the level I previously enjoyed before the injury, thus I will be in a position to increase the payments to clear the arrears. I have enclosed a cheque for £100 as part payment.

I trust you will be able to respond positively to my request for help and look forward to receiving your reply.

 

Yours

Have you thought about getting the underwriting sheet from them ? As you got the loan through a broker, then it is likely that they have paid the broker a backhander !!!

Hi

 

Do you know if there is a letter I can use asking Swift if I can continue with my payments for a short period of time say next three months? and not go down the road of repossession or full monthly payment plus £50 as per court order.

Hi Sparkie

 

Please see attached letter I sent to Swift.

 

Here is their reply

 

One hundred pounds is not sufficient for june payment.

My court order from February was to pay £217.73pm

They would accept £83.86 for April and May on the understanding that I increase my monthly payments bact to 2217.73

 

My court order is in arrears of £503 .16 and as I have not complied with the agreement they could demand full payment by return and arrange a warrant to be issued.

 

To avoid this course of action they require my proposals for payments over an above the court order and if accepted we shall require June payment to be made.

 

They will withhold action untill 22 June.

 

Your thoughts please

11 June 09 offering payment 2.doc

Hi

 

Have just recieved this letter from swift.

 

As you are aware Swift has an order for possession, which means they can ask a baliff to repossess your home.

 

Swift would rather not evict me but have no alternative unless I resume payments and make some practical proposals to keep up regular payments.

 

I must make contact with Swift within 5 days or they will insturct solicitors to apply to the court for a warrant.

 

If I do not respond to this letter and Swift have to review my account again they will instruct their solicitors to issue a warrant. Solicitor charge £100, County Court £95 and further solicitor charge £211.50

 

Also if I pay within seven days of the eviction appointment I will incur further costs to cancel the arrangements for the eviction
