Hi guys, new here so will quickly tell you about my situation, last year I took out some PDLs and couldn't afford to pay them all back, including a £200 loan with Toothfairy. Iv had countless letters from TF, MH and NDR demanding over £1000! Iv offered to pay back the original loan amount with a couple of months interest but they are saying they can only reduce the fee a bit, they are still adding interest.

 

I got an email today from NDR I contacted toothfairy today and received an email from MH so they are clearly all the same company...

 

Here is part of the email I received today, any advice welcome!

 

You currently owe £1460.

 

You agreed to repay your short term loan within 14 days. Payday loans can become expensive if you do not keep to the terms and conditions that you agreed to when you took out your loan.

 

Please note that as you borrowed £200, you are being charged £36 every 14 days. This is CLEARLY STATED in the terms and conditions YOU agreed to.

 

YOU agreed to the terms and conditions with your double digital signature by way of entering your email address in twice then clicking \'I accept and agree to the terms and conditions\'. The terms and conditions that you agreed to are legally binding under The Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Please remember that your original loan was for 14- 28 days ONLY.

 

Here is a COMPLETE breakdown of your account to-date with ALL the dates and the amount of ALL charges:

 

26.08.11 Issue LOAN £200.00 –

 

27.08.11 Charge Interest-1 £36 –

I wouldnt worry too much. They are breaking OFT guidelines all over the place with that letter, as well as possibly stepping into the world of fraud, blackmail and extortion.

Should I just pay the original loan + one months interest and then ignore them?

Pay the loan plus original agreed interest. Then let them stamp their feet and try and justify the rest of the charges.

 

Regarding the interest they keep adding, it can be seen as unfair or even unlawful as it isnt contractual and they keep adding it, despite the fact that you clearly cant repay, you have tried to come to a repayment plan, but they are ignoring you, preferring instead to hike up the debt. Unjustly enriching themselves comes to mind here.

 

Are you making official complaints to all companies involved and to the regulators/trading standards? If not, why not? They are under deep investigation atm, and part of their company is about to lose their license. They are in the 28 day appeal stage to try and get it back.

Hello,

 

I had a similar loan from this company as well, like you I offered a payment plan, like you they will not accept, and contine to send various template threats, all of which break nearly all OFT guidelines, of which three are quite serious:

 

· Levy charges that are disproportionateto the main debt and which do not reflect the actual, necessary cost ofrecovering a debt"

· "Pressure debtors who havedefaulted on an agreement to pay unreasonably large instalments when they areunable to do so"

· "Make misleading representationsas to the action it might take or might be taking to recover a debt"

The frustrating thing about this company is that by default they do not allow replies to most of the emails they send you, so it is harder to keep an accurate trail, but not impossible, try and keep a record..

What to do when you get an email is reply to their generic address, make sure you include the original mail they send you from their collections email address ie reply to: info@toothfairyfinance and make sure you copy in the OFT enquiries@oft.gsi.gov.uk

Toothfairy, Paycheck Credit, Marshall Hordes & NDR are all one and the same more or less.

Personally I would not pay anything until you have written agreement for a full and final statement, when you make this again copy in regulating bodies...

They would never dare actually take you to court but in the unlikey event they did at least you have all the correspondence of intent..

Try and not worry about this and take the threats with a pinch of salt.

Best regards,

Scott

PS: The same threats as you are getting:

Your outstanding balance is GBP 1061.

 

By failing to honour this agreement all charges will immediately become due. Recovery Agents will be sent to all addresses we have on file for you in order to obtain payment. Should this also prove unsuccessful we will be liaising with solicitors who will obtain a County Court Judgement against you. Once this is secured we will return with a Warrant of Execution from the County Court and certified Court Bailiffs to seize goods at 9 times the value of what you owe.

 

It is essential that you honour your commmitment .

 

You should pay GBP 810 by:

 

1. going online at http://www.northerndebtrecovery.com and clicking Pay Now;

 

OR

 

On 21.08.12 you will incur the following charges:

£350 recovery fee

£10 missed fee

1 interest charge of £54

which will make your outstanding balance £1475.

You must pay either

1 £1061 by 21.08.12,

OR

2) £1475 by 04.09.12.

If you have any questions please don\'t hesitate to call us on 0843 381 0843.

Failure to make either payment will result in your file being passed to a third party bailiff company who will commence proceedings against you in your local county court.

Hi there,

 

I was in a very similar situation with this company too. I took the loan of £200 in December, couldn't pay and they insisted the only thing i could do was pay over 12 months. £80pcm. That was £900!!!! My head was stuck in the sand and i was so stressed with debt i agreed. I paid 5 months and then asked for a reduction in payment. The guy on the phone told me at the beginning of the conversation he couldn't reduce the monthly payment. By the end of a 20 min conv, my payments had been reduced to £40.

 

Luckily, i had some help off a family member to pay the debt. When i was trying to negotiate a settlekment figure on the "outstanding balanace" of £560, i was told numerous times they couldn't settle for less. I spoke to another operator who gave me a settlement figure lower than this, then talking to her some more without persuation, she reduced it further and i paid them a settlement of £260. I ended up paying more than i had anticipated when takling the loan but i was just so pleased to have the amount they wanted cleared, and more so, them off my backs and out of my inbox!!

 

My advice, tell them you have no assets and that it is worth your while filing bankruptcy or applying for an IVA but that you would much prefer this not to happen. I found after months of trying to email, sending recorded deliveries, it go me nowhere so best to speak to someone. I know i was lucky enough to have some cash help and if you can afford to pay the loan plus the initlally agreed interst, i would try to negotiate as much as with them on the phone.

 

Also, definately get a complaint filed with the FOS. This company uses bullying tactics only and are very immoral.

I wish you all the luck and do hope you can negotiate with them.

If they do come, and its unlikely they will, youll laugh a lot at how desperate they become when they find out you know your rights. These con artists could have travelled 50 miles+ on the promise of 20% commission, only to find out theyre not gettign a penny from you, and not even getting travelling expenses.

Yep. Write and tell them that using the wording in that thread. If they come, then tell them to sod off or the police will be called. Remember, they have NO legal powers at all. Your milkman has more right to come to your home than these muppets do, no matter what crap they decide to spew.

YoU MUST get complaining. They are attempting to mislead you as to the status of the debt and who owns it. Plus more than one company chasing it is pretty serious.

HELP someone just came to my door stating they are from Marshal Hoares I sent them away but said they could phone me later to set up a payment plan if they could get it to me in writing. He said if I don't pay they will only send the bailiffs eventually. This is a £200 debt I rolled over once £270 and paid the £36 extension. Now they are asking over 1700! I said I wrote to them saying they can only visit me with appointment and he said they would only send more then the bailiffs.

Hello,

I know it is not easy but please do not be intimidated:

If anyone else turnsup again state they are not welcome and that you will call the police.

Marshall Hoares are not bailiffs, they are a Debt CollectingAgency named as such to mislead, which is a breach in itself in OFT guidelines.

They have no power to send court appointed bailiffs, theyand their associated companies will not go near a court, as their standing isabout as low as possible, even within the pay day loan sector.

I stress you do not owe anyone 1700 pounds, stick to yourguns and offer then original loan, plus one months interest as full and finalsettlement, only deal with them in writing, do not be bullied into paying anymore...

Relax there is nothing they can do to you, it is not a crimeto be in debt, just unfortunate you owe the lowest of the low, even in thislurky market.

How do I approach them and say look I only owe you original loan + 1 months interest? I can see them putting up a lot of resistance, do I contact the guy who came to my door who said he was working with Marshall Whores? Toothfairy or do I contact the other company harrasing me Northern?

OMG! what a bunch of imcompetant IDIOTS!

 

Have you got any proof that MH came to visit you? And did he say he was from Marshall Hoares, or Marshall Hoares Bailiffs?!

 

Either way let the OFT and trading standards know that they turned up willy nilly and that you refused them permission to come - and you have proof that you told them they were not allowed to turn up?

He gave me an unofficial looking letter that says marshall hoares bailiffs. I told him I wrote them to say I didn't want and appointment and he said it didn't matter. I have complained in the past and will complain about this visit BUT I still have to pay what I owe should I just do it or try and get them to agree to something in writing?

It will be on hell of a fight, but stick to your guns and DO NOT BACK DOWN!

You owe the original loan amount, plus contractual interest - not a penny more! Offer them this 1st, then if they still want to play silly sausages, offer them £1pcm until the balence is paid off unless they accept your final offer of loan plus interest on whatever you can afford each month.

 

They will make u feel small and like you are in the wrong, but just ignore all their threats - they will not visit you again because they know they are naughty and playing with fire!

 

Bloody cheek them just turning up when you told them not to! Make sure u get a copy of that unoffical looking letter, plus your evidence of telling them to sod of into the OFT! These Idiots need to be closed down! Bloody PDL companies really are immoral!
