Good morning,

 

I have been taken to court by a Payday Lender and I have been given a court date of when the case is.

 

I lost my job a few years ago and could not afford to pay back the loan of £150. I made them aware that I had lost my job and wasnt in a position to pay back in the mean time. After gaining full time employment I told the lender I was willing to pay back what I owe plus 1 months interest and no more. They refused this offer and I have an email with them refusing this and are now claiming i pay on the summons £500+

 

I want to defend this in court. Im a bit apprehensive about naming the lender as im sure they read this forum and dont want to give them any sort of edge if they know im looking for help.

 

Any thoughts on what my chances would be defending this?

 

Many thanks,

 

BK

When I was in a position to pay I was only willing to pay what I borrowed plus one months interest. They refused this and I just stuck to my guns on the matter.[ATTACH=CONFIG]40545[/ATTACH]

you said you were willing to pay the what borrowed and 1 months interest - did you actually pay this?

No, they refused my offer and that is why I'm being taken to court. I have the email they sent me refusing my offer of what I borrowed and one months interest. They are looking for much more, interest, charges etc and I refused to pay that.

It won't cost you anything to defend it other than your time.

 

Do you still have copies of communications of you offering payment and advising them you were in financial difficulty?

 

Are you in a position to offer payments?

 

Did you make any payments at all?

 

And just to clarify you said in your initial post that the claim was £500+ but the claims says £380?
