We know taking the loan out was wrong but we had no option at the time, we took a loan of £250.00 and now unable to repay in lump sum, they text every day emails and its getting worse they demeand £359.00 now and sent this email

 

 

We have made a number of attempts to contact you by email and SMS to discuss the outstanding balance on the short-term loan you took out on 14.08.12 and you have made no effort to return these enquiries.

 

We have also warned you in advance of additional charges you have incurred.

 

As we make clear to all our customers our product is intended to be a short term financial solution. If the loan is extended this product can become expensive.

 

As we have not heard from you and not received payment we have been left with no alternative and are writing to advise you that this debt will be passed on to our Debt Collections Agency in the next 24 hours.

 

As per the terms of the contract between Speed Credit and your self (see http://www.speedcredit.co.uk/terms.html) instructing the Debt Collections Team will add a further GBP 150 to the balance you owe. Debt recovery agents will call at the addresses we have on file for you until they are able to successfully collect the sums you owe. If our debt recovery agents, after a reasonable attempt at the addresses on file, cannot successfully recover the monies owed by you, we will issue a claim against you in the County Court for the outstanding balance plus the further charges and recovery costs that have been incurred.

 

You should be aware that a County Court Judgement against your name will remain for 6 years on the National Credit Records (NCR) accessed by employers, insurers and banks and may result in:-

 

a) difficulties in obtaining future credit

b) difficulties in obtaining a mortgage

c) being questioned at a County Court as to your financial circumstances

d) any current employers being informed so an application against your earnings can be issued

e) difficulty in securing future employment due to an adverse credit history and credit score

f) a Warrant of Execution and bailiffs being instructed

 

We will apply for a County Court Judgement followed by a Warrant of Execution and a Bailiff order to seize goods from your addresses to be issued simultaneously to the County Court Judgement. This Warrant authorises Certificated Bailiffs to seize goods at the addresses held on file for you (including what may be your family home). These goods will be taken and put up for sale at public auction until the total amount you owe is satisfied.

 

The initial cost of issuing a County Court Judgement is GBP 45, this will be charged to your account on the date of issue.

The further court costs including solicitors time, application for a Warrant of Execution and the appointment of Bailiffs will also be added to what you owe.

 

As you can see thi s will ultimately cost you a great deal more if you do not deal with this matter now.

 

It will also cause you a great deal of difficulty for many years to come.

 

We strongly recommend that you settle this amount immediately to limit further costs, preserve your credit rating and your ability to gain full time employment.

 

Please immediately pay 359 by either:

 

1) Paying online by visiting http://www.speedcredit.co.uk and clicking Pay Now;

or

2) Make a bank transfer for GBP 359 to:

Barclays Bank

Account number 93462382

Sort code 20-50-94

Ref: Use your mobile number ************ as a reference so we can match it correctly

 

ALSO please EMAIL us confirming that this has been done to stop the debt being passed to the Debt Collection Team and further charges being incurred.

 

If you ignore this and our debt recovery agency is instructed it will be a short matter of time before the C CJ is issued and Bailiffs are instructed to seize goods.

 

We look forward to hearing from you confirming a speedy resolution of this matter.

 

If you have already repaid and this is not reflected in the above statement please contact us so we can investigate this further and correct your file.

 

Regards

Its the normal form letter that they send out to everyone thats full of misinformation and lies. Ignore it and file it in a complaint with the OFT.

 

The amount they say you owe will jump around all over the place then theyll pass it on to another company who is actually the same company, but just a different name.

 

Have a read of some of the threads on this forum, it will make you breathe easier.

 

If it helps, speedcredit already lost their Credit licence, so theres not really much they can do apart from try to threaten you. Also understand that the owner of the company is a blithering idiot, who has already been in trouble a good amount of times.

Just pay them what you really owe, not the made up on the spot sums they demand and at a rate you can afford, even if that is just one pound a week. Toothfairy are really horrible to deal with, they frequently brake the law and guidelines, they don't accept payment plans other than the ones they made up themself and so on.

 

The email you quoted violates various guidelines, get that to the OFT in a complaint about the debt collection practices of Toothfairy.

 

While they won't take you to court even if you would beg them to do so it is still a good idea to pay back what you owe, but as i said, don't let their scare tactics get to you and just repay what you originally agreed to, even if they ever took you to court, the court will then be on your side.

creditors should:

 

• not use misleading or oppressive behaviour when

advertising, selling, or seeking to enforce a credit

agreement

 

• monitor the borrower's repayment record during the

course of the agreement, offering assistance where

borrowers appear to be experiencing difficulty and

 

• treat borrowers fairly and with forbearance if they

experience difficulties.

 

Quote taken from here: http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/business_leaflets/general/oft1107.pdf

 

That quote is from the OFT, all 3 points I quoted have been violated by Speed Credit.

I would recommend a complaint to the OFT.

 

Plus make it clear to speed credit that you will repay the original loan plus one month interest minus any payment already made, but not a penny more.

Just to let you know, Speedcredit doesnt care about regulations or law. They simply want as much money as possible from you, whichever way they can get it.

Well, when I was in Court with a different PDL Company the Judge decided that the law applies to them as well, so the law does not work on a opt in system contrary to what some financial institutions appear to believe.

Sadly, yes, they list on Call Credit only and list the account history and any defaults etc.

Nobody said you would go to court. The fact that they are threating something which will probably never happen, so you feel so scared you have to take out more loans to pay it, is enough for the OFT to act.

Yes they will do so, for me they added more than £3000 charges on a settled debt:lol: and someone else who posted on this forum had a debt with those folks turn from £100 into more than £19000.

However don't worry about legal action, they won't take you to Court.

WHo owns the debt? If it's speedcredit, then tell the other companies to go take a running jump.

Ask them which of their trading names owns the debt, plus request a full breakdown of all the charges.

yep, emails bounce and physical mail wouldn't really reach them either, only way to contact tf / speedcredit is effectively the contact form on their website, make sure to screenshot what of what you send to have evidence.

Screenshots wont normally be taken as evidence as they can easily be doctored. If the email bounces, its easier to simply save the reply you get from their email server.

just keep offering them what you actually owe and not a penny more.

 

as for the threats of them showing up, they've been telling me the same for over a year and never showed up, so don't worry about that.

yes, they will keep demanding more and more, however once you paid off what you actually owe it leaves you in a better position with official complaints. Plus should it ever.come to legal action defending wil be much easier.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
