    • she ignores moorcroft totally a negative PP balance cant appear on her credit file.  
    • just has an email about claim 1 - trial 7 days away     their solicitor- 'heres some further disclosure, your broker says you agreed to pg ' so just pay up and lets avoid cout!     cue list of emails between two people , with no one else cc'd or copied in   i said unless xx and xx have provided a witness st and are going to be cross examined at court, this is inadmissable hearsay (its never been disclosed) weve never seen or heard of any of it. (to note this was not presented as supplementary, paginated etc so obv was meant for my eyes only and hasnt been sent to court)   they may have had a lovely conversation, but where are we involved or proof this has been sent or included to us (it hasnt)   so bugger off
    • Hi Guys, just a quick update,     I now have all the information VCS hold on me and photos to show I was not in the fuel station as they claim. The date of the 14/02 has passed for their threat to take me to court how long should i expect to wait to hear from them?   Also should i include in my appeal that the fact they couldn't issue me 2 x PCN's had this happened in a car park (as by their own charter you are allowed a 10 minute grace period)   how can they do it on a private road, and as it is a private road when i asked them for a breakdown of the costs incurred that lead them to the figure of £100 they quoted to me the case of Bevis v parking eye to justify the amount, however i feel this is not relevant as this event took place in a car park. cheers
    • I think this needs to be settled in a court of law and I don't think any other method is at all acceptable. It needs to be open, transparent and beyond doubt.   As you have had a possible disclosure I think it is reasonable to to write them and inform them  the disclosure they have made is incomplete and so therefore they are still in breach of their strategy obligations. that you are extending your time before you issue proceedings buy a further 7-days but after that you will definitely be issuing proceedings and there won't be any further discussion. I think you have to take this approach in order to show the judge that you have been doing everything you can to be reasonable and to be co-operative even though they have failed in their duty.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Or do we need to go with the original loan plus 3 to 4 months interest? obviously without charges. Might be a bit hard to work out though with Lending Stream :(

 

Thats what I wondered, also not sure if their classed outside the usual payday loan lender cos the loans can be up to 6 months duration ? mine wasI've checked through my paperwork and past statements worked out I've paid more then half back so far, they will have made just under £100 in charges but I think I'm not being charged further fee's now so that is something I guess.They now seem to have transferred my debt to Resolution Recoveries (their inhouse collections dept) with a review of current payment amount in 3 months Think this has the potential to be tricky

Original loan and one months interest. That is it.

 

I won't reply to any more posts on this matter as I am getting very stressed by people continually questioning where the legal basis is and what case law applies. I am not legally trained and have gained the information from this site.

 

I have never been one for arguing the law, I just use logic and common sense.

:-)Thanks so much for reply Sillygirl, yep I do get where you are coming from and it certainly worked for me with another creditor on this exact basis so thanks again :-) - without the great source that is this forum I'd have paid nearly £400 in charges alone and not had the willpower or know how to "tackle" it

OK... well I'm sorted with all my 5 creditors now fingers crossed - payment plans set up and started as I'm not in the lucky boat to pay them all straight of, I've avoided any further charges, court action, an administration order/CCJ and dealings with DCA (with the exc of Lending Stream of course)

am on here to gleen advice and give others on the 'journey' the benefit of what I've been through that helped in my situation

 

Perhaps I'll be back, if I do hit any problems but I'm not expecting any going forward now hopefully ! and my heart goes out to anyone dealing with the more underhand PDL's there are out there and I'm not ashamed to talk about my experiences nor say I'm in debt but I can honestly say I'm now dealing with this constructively, I've got control back and intend to keep it this way as we do also have rights!

Lending Stream have passed my account onto Mackenzie Hall who keep leaving emails and recorded messages. The emails have no reply facility and the telephone messages just tell me to call them. I have written to them asking for a copy of the credit agreement as I have absolutely no intention whatsoever paying them back nearly a grand for a couple of loans amounting to £300! I know a CCA for payday loans probably isn't the way to go but I want EVERYTHING in writing from these cowboys including a breakdown of interest, charges etc.

Ok so i've finally heard from Lending Stream! They claim to have made repeated attempts to contact me - which they never. I have all the emails i sent to them (that went unnoticed) in my files so may just bombard them with all of those!

 

My debt has been passed on to Mackenzie Hall also. How are these people to deal with? I've noticed that people are saying that they're not very good with communication?! I'm really hoping that they don't call me at work also - are they known for doing this?

 

Anyhow, finally, has anyone's credit file been updated?

Hi, I stupidly took a loan with lendingstream, also believing it was a 1 month loan.

 

I was planning on doing the first payment (£34), then paying the rest of in full once paid again.

 

However, the first payment didn't leave, and I got a text saying so. I've tried emailing them, using their 'contact us' form and ringing them and can not get in touch, neither have they replied.

 

Logged into my account now, and the account summary is empty, and the pages aren't loading.

 

I'd like to pay them, but they're making it impossible to pay :S Very frustrating as I don't want charges when it's not my fault. I want to just pay them off fully if possible now, they're a joke company and one I want my hands fully washed of.

 

Any advice?

:welcome:Please see below bank details for Lending Stream as I understand you want to make a payment - I would also send proof of payment so they know to look for it and allocate it to your account

Dear xxxxx

In response to your email here are our bank details what you can make payments into.

Barclays Bank

Sort code 20 19 90

Account 13434028

Ref Your loan agreement number

Hope this information helps.

I would recommend you check with your bank as Lending Stream are known for taking debit card payments and little ones... 3 at a time to make the payment amount !!! which depending who you bank with can get a fraud alert on your account which maybe blocking payment ?

Hi, thanks! Yes, £3 left earlier - I thought it may be them... I will try ringing them in the morning again, I just hate having to pay talk to these guys, why won't they answer their emails?

 

My loan was £100, plus £15, if I repay £36 tomorrow (if possible), any clue how much I'd have to pay mid January fully, and if they'd let me?

Honestly I'm not sure, though their Interest Fee is 30% per month (£30 per £100 borrowed)

 

Have you tried these email addresses

I'd always recommend asking early, I've heard they can be repaid early and it's not like your going into default, found if you make a payment they will take you seriously x

Write to their registered address - send it so you have proof of delivery and a signature for collection - if no word from them after 14 days contact Trading Stanadards and the OFT and immediately (today) contact MP Stella Creasey as she is after the PDL companies and has journalists ready to name and shame these companies.... she can also help with your problem by getting her more senior contacts to look at the issue.

Why only now do these journalists really want to know? it's been bad dealing with these companies for a couple of years now the threads on here are evident and enough to have already filled a newpaper whilst the useless people in power turned their back, but then Lending Stream are covered by a trade association which is another avenue open to avfc1991 to take if no joy getting a responseMy friend said the MP letter I received recently was nothing more then a '****e' reply

They now only want to know because it is newsworthy, that is why. There is no consipracy theory here, just the basic fact that ALL lenders have shut the stable door without bothering to find out any further ways of dealing with issues and these companies are proliferating and profiting from others misfortune.

 

Get your MPs reply over to Stella Creasey, she is dealing with this at a high level now and is the MP to watch out for. Her office has contacted me several times now about issues and I am passing on the information to her when I have permission from the original poster.

 

Sometimes being pessimistic about the issues helps keep them 'under wraps', speaking out and naming and shaming these shark companies is one of the better ways of bringing them into disrepute - as is continually complaining about every breach of the OFT Guidelines on debt collecting, spelling out exactly what breach has been made and in what way.... that helps the OFT build a far better portfolio against these companies.

Thank you for the reply SG :-) yeah I can forward letter,

though I've probably already named and shamed majority of my lenders in some way already they will be wanting me for slander next lol! but just write what seemingly has worked for me, whether negative or positive. In the end I just found it was much easier to co-operate rather then it watch it balloon

 

Thanks for your time, god bless

Stephen, this is a PAYDAY LOAN, not a SUB PRIME MORTGAGE, completely different kettle of fish.... The MCOB are powerless with payday loans.

 

I really do not think that Stella Creasy will be able to help with a sub prime mortgage company unless you are in her constituency (Walthamstow).

 

Your comments on your case, whilst interesting, have no relevance on this thread, I think that you ought to start a new thread or I can get the site team to do this for you - your message is completely out of place here.

 

A default on a payday loan takes place automatically as the original loan period has ended, there are completely different rules.

 

With a sub-prime mortgage once you are in arrears you are stuck as the original loan period still has a considerable time to go.

This thread was originally started in March 2011 and some of the posters had mentioned that they had defaulted many months before that but had heard nothing. I have a loan with LS that I will have to default at the end of this month. If possible I would be interested to know what the outcomes were for the other members that were in the same situation Many thanks in advance

Well 1 to 1 and a half years of hearing nothing.

Then a default notice sent by email.

Then a few letters from Mckenzie hall (what are jokers i personally would ignore anything from these monkeys)

Then it all went quiet again.

 

But thats not to say your case will not be different.

Asmilecostsnothing here! can only echo what Paxon has said in the last line, here is my experience

 

My defaulted a/c (which was half paid prior) passed quickly to Resolution ***** Recoveries - a leg of their own little circle No telephone calls - managed to communicate by email if a little slow in reply sometimes... I was a PITA!

 

Found if I paid the balance of rather quickly (couple of months) and with a few of my own letters the following charges were dropped (have that confirmed)

letter fee £12.00

collection fee £40.00

 

Make of that what you will - I'm still confuzzled! oh are they a payday lender though ??
