hi i am in desperate need for someone to guide me along the right path!!

 

I took a loan out with welcome aug 2008!

Loan: £2000

insurance: £1433.36

acceptance fee: £75

interest charged: £3640.88

 

total a hugh £7149.24

 

i never realised this was the figure until i went through this the other night with my partner! it's ova 36 months at £198.59

 

i am shocked i even took this out but was desperate at the time!! i pay £200 a month and £160 is interest my balance is creeping up and i am getting really scared, i only work part time as have kids and £200 out of a £500 wage is killing me!! I have written the first letter of about claiming insurance back but as yet no response?? I was never told when sold this loan the total payable and they don't add this up for you on the agreement, i feel i complete mug and will be very grateful of any advise??

many thanks in advance:(

When did you send letter; where did you send it and was it recorded?

How the hell can they justify insurance (i assume its PPI) of £1400 on a loan of £2000?? that cant be right surely.

 

If it is PPI then you should be able to claim it all back. Someone with a bit more knowledge should be along to help you soon.

 

In the mean time, if you have a copy of your agreement, can you scan it (Black out all personal details and reference numbers) and post it up in this thread for the guys to read.

Ow! I'm in a similar boat, but my gosh, that's a really high rate of PPI. You're not alone, I had a loan of 1500.00 with an acceptance fee of 75.00 and insurance of 563.00. It was only a lot later when I realised how my interest they had charged - 60% APR!

 

Do persist with the PPI reclaiming - you'll be owed a lot of money, as the interest they charge is compound.

 

A hint on how they calculate interest, by the way - they have one rate in the demands and needs statement that you got with your loan, but it might not be right.

 

As part of this process you'll proberbly want to look at your statement and work out how much interest they're actually charging you month by month, so you can make sure they're paying you the right amount back. if you want to post a page of your statement - with all the spersonal details removed - I'll be happy to do the calculations for you. :)

WELL WORKING PART TIME WOULD INVALIDATE PPI

ALL THE INSURANCE PRODUCTS WOULD HAVE TO BE SHOWN TO BE SUTABLE

 

THIS IS DONE BY WELCOME FILLING OUT A NEEDS AND DEMANDS STATEMENT TO ASK QUESTIONS ON SUTABILITY. ITS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT.

 

WELCOME ARE MORE INTERESTED IN COMMISSION THAN THIS SO WE WILL GET ALL THE PPI ETC BACK AT 60 % CONTRACTUAL INTEREST

 

YOU NEED TO SEND THIS BY RECORDED DELIEVERY

ITS MY OWN SPECIAL SAR

 

SEND BY RECORDED DELIEVERY AND ENCLOSE A TEN QUID POSTEL ORDER

 

THEN PHONE THESE PEOPLE AND ASK THEM TO SEND OUT ALL INFO THEY HAVE ON YOU REF INSURANCE AND WELCOME

Dear Sir/Madam

Please supply me with copies of all the data which you hold on me in relation to any matter and in any form and for any period of time.

Please note that I require disclosure of any personal data which you hold on me for the entire period of my dealings with you.

The Subject Access is not limited to my transaction history and it is not linited merely to 6 years of historical information.

Additionally, where there has been any event in my account history over this period which has required manual intervention by any member of your staff, or any other person, I require disclosure of any indication or notes which have either caused or resulted in that manual intervention, or other evidence of that manual intervention in relation to my financial business with you.

I require all information on details of all insurance products supplied by welcome financial services. This is to include the statement of means, statement of price, details of all insurance premium tax paid, and underwriting sheets.

If mortage indemnity insurance has been added to the agreement, i require all details on who this premium was paid to, and who underwrites this insurance.

 

If you are unable to supply this data because there has been no such manual intervention, then please be so kind as to confirm this in your response.

 

I enclose the statutory maximum fee of £10. You have 40 days in which to comply. Furthermore, if I discover that you have levied disproportionate penalties or charges which are invalid under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations against me, then I shall be reclaiming them together with any interest charges which you have levied on them.

However, please note that the above address is the one which you normally use to communicate my private business to me and which you have hitherto found to be acceptable.

Post - you need to amend your SAR letter to say "print name" instead of "signature".
