    • thanks for the response   The items arrived totally damaged and our customer sent them back and we had to re make all of the items again. This cost was just over £7000. Yes we are on a creidt type account, I asked for the compensation on the problem delivery and they decided to lie and cheat and then close the complaint. we did take photos and so did my customer, DPD said they could not use them as it didnt show enough detail. this again is untrue.    The invoice we are with holding is £530  We had to remake all of the work as mentioned above.    I hope this helps a little more  
    • Hi I use Martin Lewis Credit club and if I click on the defaults they say ‘account settled’ and the dates range from December 17 to Feb 18 under each tab. It also states the name of the new debt owner now and says last updated.    Will that be the default  dates or will I find it elsewhere?         
    • Hi Andy, yes they did + another £600 for flush and repair! I was surprised that they just accepted the FOS terms without a whimper. Cheque received and cashed.     @dx100uk Agreed. I read people having similar issues with getting repairs from ASG, not sure if it was on here or another site but they seem to adopt the same line about it being the customers responsibility to keep their system fresh and clean. My system was powerflushed in 2016 and by 2018 it was similar to having 4 blocked arteries. I have my doubts as to whether it was done.
    • Hi there, so as I write this this has been going on since 2005, basically I got myself into debt when I was younger and couldn’t afford to pay it all back. Lloyds put everything together and it came out over £20,000 this Was passed onto Lloyds debt recovery team in 2005 but I was paying the debt off in small amounts I believe this debt was then passed onto a company called Robinson way in January 2006 where I was paying £130 a month this then changed to debt managers and then onto clarity Lloyds and arrow global have stated that I made no payments between 2005 and 2009 even though I have proof I paid Robinson way! This is where it’s gets complicated my dad was making the Payments from his account to Robinson way. The other issue I had was for from 2015 onwards I also had a problem with passing security and I believed my details were compromised with arrow global, who I found out they had the date of birth of myself the wrong month after contacting Lloyds they stated they had the right date of birth and had it right all the time. It turned out Lloyds were actually incorrect and didn’t have my right date of birth at all and an address I never lived at. So for the last 6 months I have been trying to get hold of Robinson way as they don’t have the correct details for me and I can’t get the information. But here’s the plot twist apparently Arrow managed to get hold of Robinson way and they state the debt wasn’t for that But how as Robinson way didn’t have the correct details for me. Unfortunately I have lost all faith in  Arrow. I asked Lloyds for everything to do with my account And I have received a letter after all this to go into branch to identify myself 😢 I have been living this nightmare for the last 15 years and I know I got myself into this but I have made these payments since 2005 what can I do if anything I have been through the financial obdusman who to be frank were terrible.

    • 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

If someone has a monthly income getting paid into their bank account of £380, and the bank sends them an application for a pre-approved credit card with a limit of £5000, would that be classed as irresponsible lending?

an application for a pre-approved credit card with a limit of £5000
That statement is utter nonsense if you think about it. If it had been pre-approved why the need to fill in an application? Also an application is just that, it leaves it open to refusal. :rolleyes:

Looking into the future, could a lenders, HSBC, irresponsible lending be a defence in court.

 

The story

HSBC gave my OH a pre-approved card with a limit of £5K, she has a part-time job with an income of £380/mth. The interest rate has just gone up by 2% and she is now in a position of never being able to pay off the balance. HSBC won't freeze the interest or give any worthwhile help, they are acting little better than a loan shark would. If I go through their complaints procedure then complain to the Ombudsman, if that is the best avenue, and the Ombudsman agrees that HSBC have been irresponsible. Could we use the irresponsible lending angle as a defence in court?

 

I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has complained of irresponsible lending before, or anyone who has any opinions re the above.

 

Thanks

I think anything is possible at the moment.

The banks are so wounded & so in debt to the public anyway :)

I too was in the same situation, but one day Egg passed me through to Payplan, they were very helpful and the end result is that all 3 of my cards have frozen the interest and Im paying them a token amount each month.

Has anyone made a complaint re irresponsible lending then followed it up with a complaint to the Ombudsman? I was wondering how it panned out, and if anyone could give me advice.

Lots of people make complaint about irresponsible lending. I'm not aware that every get anywhere. There are no particular guidelines as to what is irresponsible. The banks immediately go into denial. It is a very unsatisfactory grey area.

 

Something really should be done at the moment I'm not aware that there is any structured attempt to deal with it.

I want to make a complaint about a bank giving a pre-approved credit card with a limit of £5K to someone with an annual income of only £4K. Question is who do I complain to, all of the official bodies FOS etc seem to be either toothless or uninterested in consumer complaints.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think the usual channels will only result in a dead end or a deaf ear.

 

Try your MP. If you are the kind to press a point you feel to be to the benefit of many, you may be pleasantly surprised at the response.


HOIST BY THEIR OWN PETARD.

 

Blimey it works....:-)

You could also complain to the bank itself and see what they have to say about it. You will then learn why they don't think it was irresponsible or get another nice surprise.

The FOS wouldn't make any judgement on that. Their reply would be that it would be up to the borrower whether they choose to borrow at extortionate rates or take on more credit than they can afford. They are not consumer-friendly and are financed by the banks.

Walter Merricks stepped down in October last year.

 

Natalie Ceeney has been named by the FOS, as its CEO;

she will leave her role as chief executive and keeper of the public records at the National Archives and join as chief ombudsman in March 2010.

 

This new appointment does not sound very encouraging, does it?

 

Personally, I cannot really see anything changing and;

exacting what experience has Ms Ceeney had with regards to Consumer Complaints?

Apparently they base their decisions on regulations rather the legalisation. i had an argument with them when they ruled in favour of MBNA, who had clearly unlawfully terminated the agreement. But the FOS said they could not decide on legal matters, as that is something for the court to decide, and can only base their decision's on regulations that govern the conduct of the creditor. So yeah apparently in my case unlawful termination is irrelevant so long as their paper work is set out within the regulations!

 

So figure that one out, because i can't.

 

Needless to say i look forward to seeing MBNA in court, which is unlikley as they sold the account (unlawfully), so experto credit are stuck with it and i made it clear to them regardless of the FOS decision MBNA's actions were still unlawfull and in breach of leglisation. So they then turned round and ask what we (me and experto. Yep dam well knocked me for six when they asked me for advice lol) should do to resolve the debt, so i told them thats their problem between them and MBNA not mine, as MBNA sold them an account that was unlawfully terminated and sold.
