Many of you are probably aware that the new payday loan customer charter is now in place, if you fancy having a look here it is:

Most payday loan lenders will be a member of one of the participating trade associations, this means there is now a (slightly) more obligation on your payday loan lender to play fair. These rules are in addition to the OFT guidance on debt collection.

 

If you are unhappy with your payday loan provider (for whatever reason!) there is currently a payday loan survery which is designed to feed info to the powers that be, please take a minute to complete it - YOU could make all the difference:

Note that the surveys are only applicable for loans taken out after 26th Nov 2012

 

Here is an automated complaints letter that you can fire off to your payday loan lender

Forgive me if I do not believe it will make a difference to the likes of minicredit

 

You're forgiven. But, yes, it very may well.

Good point! I'll stick that in.

So this is a voluntary code of practice which if the pdls abided by they would be out of business because of the breaches so it's just there to try and forestall the government legislation that may or may not come into force?

 

WE are the only country in the world that allows this form of usury.

A long time ago ( and I'm not going to go into dates) usury was illegal, (making money from lending money)

 

The banks found a way round this by using currency exchange rates, (look it up. I did ) and so the whole money lending industry began.

There are various things going on at the moment, from various angles - so one would hope changes are afoot.

SEQUENCI - does anyone know what the new interest rate will be capped at per month?

 

It's not as simple as that. From what I understand the FCA will be able to place a cap on an individual's payday loan rate in certain circumstances; I'm not sure they'll be a blanket cap.

 

Anyway, if this cap becomes more and more common you can bet your bottom dollar that the PDL firms will find some other way to charge people. Expect higher 'fees'.

That's exactly what I was thinking - how is this going to help put an end or at least a more regulation to this?

hello and thanks for the link, useful info. The Money Shop are harrassing me at present despite being sent a letter requesting they do not telephone at all times of the day due to caring responsibilities, they refuse to stop and refuse to provide a copy of all the charges they took from disability allowances using the card details. Having read the link provided, I understand that the charges taking me overdrawn on a basic account, may challenged, as these charges are over any sums owed. I have no issue in returning funds borrowed, however, the charging regime appears to be draconian and unfair according to the OFT.

 

thank you.

Wow that's a long list of payday loan companies, the only place I've seen them all listed. They should make you type in the name of the company, because anyone with any problems needing money has a very long list there of companies that will probably lend to them irresponsibly, without doing any checks. I wonder how much someone could borrow working their way down that list?
