A default that was filed on my credit report last year (even though I defaulted nearly 6 years ago) from welcome finance has also just disappeared off my credit report. It was there last month. I can't find anything on Google as to why this might of happened. Maybe the defaults were unlawful as like I said I defaulted years ago and they only reported it last year they also said I borrowed £4800 when I only borrowed £2300.

I logged on here to search this very subject!

 

I have ongoing disputes with Welcome regarding my partners account and received a long awaited letter from them just today.

 

One of the paragraphs reads

'I can confirm that Welcome Finance no longer reports the status of active accounts to the credit reference agencies; this will be of benefit to you as it will show no adverse history'

 

Very interesting. I was wondering if this applied to only him but it would appear to affect maybe everyone with an active account.

 

Why would they do this? It's normally extremely hardwork to get this kind of data changed as they're legally entitled to be able to report it and like that it's detrimental to your financial situation. Payback for them if you don't pay for whatever reasons. It's a secured loan with payments made only a few months ago so even stranger I think.

 

Really strange behaviour from Welcome but GREAT news for their long suffering customers. Check your credit files guys!!

My current Welcome secured loan has disappeared of my credit report too. Having spoken to Welcome customer relations today it seems they had a belief that they had not been reporting information to credit reference agencies correctly, so made the responsible decision to stop reporting. I asked if it was likely to re-appear and was told it wasn't unless they sold the debt to someone else. As i'm not in arrears its unlikely to happen to me.

 

Interesting that Welcome and "responsible" are in the same sentence!

Interesting!

 

My partner also spoke to Welcome today and the guy He spoke to seemed to be a bit cagier about the whole matter. He said it was a financial decision the company had come to and that they obviously wouldn't be making an announcement.

 

He did however confirm that it applied to all Welcome customers with an active account.

 

He had originally called to follow up some complaints I'd made months ago. The Welcome guy basically said that we were never going to get the answers to the questions I'm asking (agreement flaws, fee/ interest queries, default queries) and that We should just take it to the FOS and get the ball rolling.

 

I think there is a lot going on at Welcome at the moment.

 

The burden of their bad credit reporting seems to be done with for their current customers but don't forget this doesn't erase the debt. They can and will try to chase it.

I have just had the same thing yesterday,

spent ages writing a defence (they want to take husband to court for a HP loan from 2006)

including screenshots of how they have reported on his credit file for years

that he is 6 payments missed instead of default,

 

 

the day after I took the screenshots it all dissapeared off the credit file!

 

 

Wondered if it was just his file because they knew we might bring it up in court

but it would seem that lots of people are having the same thing happen..interesting!

just seen this thread . I have 2 files from Welcome removed from my credit report this week. I wonder what is going on, but I am happy they are no longer there

 

Someone stated that the debt obviously hasnt gone and may re appear if the debt is sold. So that brings a question to mind ... If there was a default date on one of the files will that still stand if the debt is sold ? The other was never put to default, just missing payments ..

 

Just asking as the defaulted file was defaulted on 06/06/2008 so in effect would have disappeared next year anyway

Files on defaulted debts are removed on the 6th anniversary of the default date paid or not.

If the above does not apply is is likely that the debts have been sold.

But even if the debts are sold on a default from a year ago would stay on my credit report regardless of whether it has been sold on or not. Has anyone checked their experian or Equifax credit files to see if it has gone from those too? I've only checked my noddle one and my £2 Equifax one. It did show on that but the date it was last updated was August.

As has been explained previously Welcome accounts have been withdrawn from the CRAs and are being 'investigated'.

I'm not sure this is a recent thing, any reference to Welcome disappeared from my credit file last August (2012), along with the car that was financed by Welcome and seriously in arrears, being removed from the HPI register.

I got a CCJ from Welcome in January 2013 5 months before it was due to be SB, I didnt even get papers let alone defend, does this mean i have a case. I had bailiffs come knocking in August so i filled a N245 and have had no calls/letters from CC since, could there be a reason why.
