    • Go and show All the paper work to a solictor then and seek their advice, think its becoming pointless anyone from CAG advising you anymore !
    • The Court appears to have accepted the fact Fitness Superstore were served the full particulars of claim. This is indicated under "recent transactions" where the date of service is recorded as 21/12/2021 in keeping with the certificate of service that was re-filed to the court with the correct address.
    • Things are becoming more involved, Redwood Collections have been attempting to contact me for the past 4 days without leaving a message and using a different number each time. In addition I have also had an application for credit declined as a result of "information provided by credit reporting agencies".   The plan of action is to pay what I think is owed at the end of the contract period on 31st Jan, check the credit file and send a SAR to the company which denied the credit application to see if more can be understood.   I now may not be the only person directly affected by Shell Energy's inaccurate data processing. However as suggested above I wish to formally receive judgement regarding Shell Energy's incomplete disclosure. I think this will be important evidence indicating their data processing is in disarray. There are two considerations: 1. If it really is best to wait until the incomplete disclosure case is heard this could significantly delay bringing further action. 2. On the other hand as a result of intervention by the ICO Shell Energy did finally disclose the evidence which shows their inaccurate data processing so it may be prudent to simply proceed once the steps above are complete in order not to significantly delay the action.
    • With reference to the claim for harassment against Shell Energy the cause for action could be substantiated by their multiple breaches of CONC. Shell Energy are a registered member of the FCA. I have attached a single true copy indicating the format of each message received.   @BankFodder Do you think these messages fall foul of CONC 7.9? CONC 7.9 - A firm must ensure that a person contacting a customer on its behalf explains to the customer the following matters: (1) who the person contacting the customer works for; (2) the person's role in or relationship with the firm; and (3) the purpose of the contact.   I expect the rabbit hole to take the following path: SE claim it wasn't a person that contacted me claiming they don't have to allocate an actual person provided they act as a reasonable person. I would respond that given the explicit instruction not to contact me via text message that the reasonable person would have written to me with their name, role and contact details, as well as to have complied with CONC 7.5.3 and CONC 7.14.5 below.   There appears to also be a breach of CONC 7.5.3 A firm must not ignore or disregard a customer's claim that a debt has been settled or is disputed and must not continue to make demands for payment without providing clear justification and/or evidence as to why the customer's claim is not valid.   CONC 7.14.5 - A firm must provide a customer with information on the outcome of its investigations into a debt which the customer disputed on valid grounds. As per the data they have elected to disclosure so far no investigation has been carried out. SE - Msg example.pdf

Hi all,

 

I lodged a complaint with the FOS about a PDL that refuses to help people in financial difficulty, illness and other difficulties.

 

What was originally a loan of £400 has gone up to £3500 in 18 months despite having paid off £390 through my DMP.

 

I lodged the complaint over a year ago and now have had a phone call from the adjudicator saying that he has investigated the claim.

 

The PDL have "kindly" agreed to decrease the debt to £1000 and have been ordered to pay me £250 in compensation.

 

I said that I was not happy with that, I mean the debt, I was not expecting compensation. The adjudicator then said that he would pass this on to the (chief) ombudsman now.

 

My question is,

 

can the FOS force the PDL to pay me compensation?

 

Has anybody had any experience of this?

 

I am not happy that the debt still stands at £1000 considering the 18 months of sheer hell, I have had with these clowns.

 

The loan was originally £400, what would be a reasonable figure?

 

I was thinking of a final figure of £496 bearing in mind, I have only £100 to go.

 

If I'm not happy with the FOS what is my next port of call?

 

I really do not think that I can go through this again and I really don't want to go to court.

 

Any suggestions/advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks dx,

 

Would you consider £496 in total to be a reasonable fiqure? I just can't believe the phone call. It's been so long and when I originally phoned by the FOS, I was told that PDL could charge what they liked.

Ok thanks dx.

 

Would the next action be court or what? They have also defaulted me for the past 18 months, the FOS is aware of this.

 

I will let you know how I get on.

Hi sianib,

 

A reasonable figure would be

 

400 GBP original loan

72 GBP original interest

12 GBP default fee

12 GBP second default fee

48 GBP interest (=8% of 400 GBP over 18 months)

 

This is a total of 544 GBP owed. You already paid 390 GBP and you should receive the 250 GBP compensation (for the hassle you had), so currently they should owe you (and pay you) 96 GBP (544 GBP - 390 GBP -250 GBP) to settle.

 

The fos deals mostly with banks. They have no idea that PDL companies like Toothfairy hike up fees and interest unproportionally with the intention to then offer a huge discount - you have to tell them that this is what you suspect. Tell the fos also that these PDL loans are for short term purposes only and it is unproportionate to keep adding these high interest rates, only 8% is reasonable.

Why 2 default fees? Only one is acceptable and even then, thats after they send a default notice.

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..

You sure? If the person defaulted, isnt a single FAIR default fee allowed to be charged? It would be good to get some clear clarification.

Hi guys,

 

Update!

 

I received a phone call from the adjudicator today and MCO have agreed to reduce the outstanding balance to £350,

pay £250 compensation so my balance is effectively £100.

 

This is actually pretty much where I expected to be but I don't think that I am getting any compensation for any distress etc.

That to me isn't important,

I just hope that finally this whole mess is nearly over.

 

A big issue is that on my call credit report it is showing a default for ridiculous amounts for 18 months,

F0S just thinks this is how it's being reported and that it will update next month.

Does anybody have any advice?

I am also making a seperate complaint against Marshall Hoare "Bailiffs".

 

I hope that anybody who is having problems with this company keeps the faith.

I have not received texts/emails since months and got them to back down from a debt of nearly £4000 to £100.

Keep the faith, I also have some news to report re Barclays.

 

Thank you so much to those of you who offer advice in a practical and non-judgemental way. You, along with Step Change have been amazing and I hope that I am able to help someone.

Give them the benefit of the doubt as some cra records do get updated every 30 days. If yours doesnt, then reopen the complaint
