Confirming account balances and ownership without knowing who that email is ever going to reach? Naughty! They no knowledge whether that email account even exists any more.

 

I took a brief look at their website and it is evident that it was made by a drunk or someone who needs serious help with their English Skills. Littered with typos and poor grammar... Lets see what happens if I ignore it then... What would you folks suggest however?

 

The account was disputed with Account In Dispute Notice which I sent long ago...!

I'll just go ahead and mention it...

 

The former Director of Digital Finance Services UK Ltd Tuomo Kari Kustaa Maki was also the Director of the the Payday Lender MCO Capital which had its credit license revoked and shut down, but MCO also had links to the CIM / Toothfairy Construct.

Yes. They sent a further email last Saturday. I replied with the following:

 

"Sue me. I am not going to pay"

 

No response as of yet.

Lol, I don't think they have any legal standing but if they do you've just acknowledged you owe them money and that your email address is current.

 

I hope they can't touch us! Good luck let me know how you get on!

You should see their website...! I know I'm one to talk for speelun errorrs etc. But seriously. Here are some examples:

 

"Please note that some banks do not support “Faster Payments”, if this is the situation then the payments can get delayed. Some banks may also charge additional charge."

 

"*Wealth Warning: A payday loan could be a good helping companion for short term borrowing. It is not a long term solution who is in financial difficulty!"

 

"When you take a loan from us, we will setup a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) against borrower’s debit card.This is to ensure there is a guaranteed payment from borrower’s end while providing the loan."

 

Do any of those sentences make any sense whatsoever? Screams Cowboy Operation to me all over!

Eitehr cowboy op, or if you check the company records, a foreign national who is perhaps taking advantage. Seems to be happening a lot with PDL's and obscure DCA's. The majority seem to be owned or ran by eastern europeans or further afield.

It's most likely a mail redirection centre or serviced offices. Many PDL's and some debt buyers use these to hide themselves away from prying eyes. They even use these when they register with company house so its difficult to track them down.

One of the former Directors is Tuomo Kari Kustaa Maki (of MCO Capital "fame") which doesn't exactly sound like the most traditional British name, but that isn't a valid excuse, they could have just paid some local unemployed guy £20 to have a quick glance to check if its even remotely ok.

So I was reading through and spotted another post about these guys saying they now had next credits debts but it turned out they hadn't!

 

Anyway they have messaged me informing of the following:

 

Dear Mr ,

 

Total Due: £ 1771

Please be informed that your loan is still outstanding with Digital Finance Services UK for the above mentioned amount.

 

We have tried to reach you on 2 different occasions continuously both by email and over the phone. (I really liked that bit!)

 

We are disappointed that you have failed to respond any of our communications.

We write to advise you that unless we receive a payment of £1771 within the next 7 days we will be left with no alternative but to issue court proceedings against you.

 

In order to avoid legal proceedings, we advise you to visit our website and click on ‘PAY NOW’ section to make the payment for your loan. Alternately, you may use our bank details and pay via faster payment, CHAPS or wire transfer service. Our bank details are provided below-

 

A/C: 43266351

Sort Code: 406080

 

If we are forced to issue proceedings against you then we will also be claiming interest, court fees and fixed solicitors costs on top of the sum outstanding. The cost structure is provided bellow-

 

We trust the above will not be necessary and that we will receive payment of £ 1771 by 1st November 2014. You are strongly advised to contact us to the provided contact details for any assistance to arrange the payment.

 

Kind Regards,

So no indication as to who they think I owed money to previously, and a very suspicious £1771 exactly to be paid hmmm....

 

Well my first thought was to reply using 2 choice words beginning with F and O but then I conceded that this would let them know this was an active email address etc..

 

Also what wasn't shown on the copy I put on here was the breakdown of charges which include £3 each time they try to call whether I answered or not (and they don't have my number), £3 each time they text me whether it is received or not! and £5 per letter (and the letter was the only one that didn't mention a reasonable amount etc...)

 

So now I'm thinking send the bar stewards 1000 letters all marked 1 of 1000, 2 of 1000, 3 of 1000 etc.. and ask them to pay me £5000 within 7 days less the claimed £1771 leaving £3229 into the following bank details or I will be forced to issue legal proceedings?

 

Seems like a lot of effort but I was thinking of documenting the whole thing and putting it onto a blog and maybe even trying to generate a bit of media attention around this obvious con artist.

 

any thoughts?

While I do usually tell people to pay what they owe, with this particular corporate construct involved I would strongly advice against paying even one single penny. Further I would suggest to completely ignore that company.

 

The people behind it are the same people who ran MCO Capital / Speed Credit / Toothfairy / CIM / Marshall Hoares / meddled in dodgy time shares in Cyprus / used to sell pornography / had some of their credit licenses involved / use highly suspect addresses to officially conduct their business from / got busted by the OFT for trapping people in subscriptions for dodgy credit record services / some of them have criminal convictions...

 

Need I go on?

SImple reply to them. Demand a full breakdown of the account.

 

However, if theyve only sent something by email, play dumb and pretend the email address is not used anymore.
