TXT Loans sold the debt to Equiddebt who sent numerous texts and phone calls daily,

 

I spoke to them and asked them to send me a copy of my signed agreement etc..

. received email saying they had requested this from TXT Loan 15th April and the account was on hold

 

- Heard nothing since until an email today from TXT loan saying that they had transferred this debt to a new collection company

- forwarded TXT loan the email from Equidebt who then responded straight away apologising

and saying they wanted to come to arrangement with me direct to clear the debt

- I asked for a copy of my signed agreement of which they emailed a pdf document

This agreement,the credit that we provide and your repayments

 

Credit Limit - £100, or such sum as we may from timeto time offer (see condition 1.5).

 

Once you have entered into this Agreement you canmake a request for an advance. For each advance you request and that we arewilling to make we will tell you before you take the advance I) the amount thatwe are willing to loan, II) the total amount that you must repay (includinginterest), and III) the repayment date. You must then decide whether to takethe advance. If you take the advance you must repay that advance by paying thetotal amount repayable (including interest and charges) on the repayment date.Once you have repaid your advance you can make requests for further advances.If we award you VIP status your credit limit will be increased (see conditions1.25 to 1.29).

 

If you make a request for an advance and we agree toprovide you with credit we will provide you with credit by paying that amountof credit into the bank account that you have provided us with details of. Ifwe agree to provide you with an advance we will inform you by text message whenthe advance is being processed and when it has been sent to your bank account.Requests for an advance during our normal business hours will be provided thesame day usually within 60 minutes. In any other case the credit will beprovided the next day.

 

 

 

This Agreement has no minimum duration.

 

This is a running account credit agreement underwhich you are provided with unrestricted-use credit.

 

 

 

Our Charges andthe amount that you pay

 

The APR for an advance is 4,474 %APR (variable).

 

For normal advances, assuming that you take anadvance of £100 for 15 days, and assuming that our charges are as they are atthe date of this agreement, the total you must pay back (including interest) is£117. Interest charges will apply to each advance and are variable. We willtell you the total amount you must repay if we provide an advance for adifferent period or in a different amount.

 

The normal interest rate is 414 % per annum,variable. We may vary the rate of interest and the interest charges in ourabsolute discretion as long as we tell you before you take the advance.

 

If you use a text message to contact us this maycost you up to £1 plus your normal network charges. This amount may change ifthe network operator changes its pricing structure.

 

 

 

If you are latein making a payment

 

If you are late in repaying an advance the followingcharges apply (variable - see condition 1.8)

 

1st reminder (sent 1 day after repayment date) - £25

If you have still not paid 46 days after repaymentdate the account is transferred to a debt collection agency and anadministration fee charged by the debt collection agency of up to 25% of theoutstanding balance is applied to the account. We may vary the amount of thesecharges or the circumstances in which we make charges, but such a variationwill not affect any advance that you already have with us. If you are late inrepaying the advance we will charge you interest at the applicable interestrate for that advance on the amount of the advance until it is repaid in full.

 

 

 

You have to pay any other costs that we reasonablyincur as a result of you missing your payments, for example our reasonablelegal costs or the additional costs incurred by a debt collection agency.

Ahh so it wasnt a PDL, but one of their "running accounts" where they can extend credit to you as they like, and therefore isnt under the same regulations as a PDL.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
