    • I'm afraid that I'm not following any of the threads and not at all aware of the issues. However, I can tell you that there is never a downside to sending an SAR to anybody. It's all free. It takes 30 days and it's always wise to get it going earlier than later
    • After reading Dixon2094 FAST TAX REBATES DECEPTION & FRAUD I am a victim of Alan O’Hara and his company Fast Tax Rebates (FTR) deception and fraudulent activity. I am extremely worried as HMRC are demanding I repay £13,229.00 by 8/12/2021 of which I personally received only £4354 as I do not have the money.  I was referred by a friend who himself has discovered he has been deceived. I was led to believe that I could claim tax relief/rebate on work related expenses. After lots of searching,  I have, only this morning, found this group and just read through the whole of this thread.  Question Please can you advise if I need to request SAR from HMRC and FTR and complete the other actions you advised? My action to date: 1. I have investigated and researched Alan Francis O’Hara (AFO). 2. Reported AFO deception and fraudulent activity to Action Fraud. No reply received to date. 3. Written to HMRC enclosing copies of: - all emails between myself and ‘Mike’, ‘Claire Marshall’; - AF form; - Copy of my bank Statement showing deposit from FTR. After finally speaking to HMRC yesterday who informed me that they have literally hundreds of cases where EIS is the scam that dishonest ‘tax agents’ have used. I have been advised to lodge a review/appeal against this HMRC decision which I am in the process of writing.  Question Any advice you can give me about writing the review/appeal would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks
    • Please could you start up your own thread on this issue. It's very important because it makes it easier for people to understand which piece of advice is given to who. Also, the more individual threats we have about this, the more significant it is to Google and the higher up in the rankings it will go and that will attract more attention. Also, every new thread which started here is sent out on our Twitter feed and that will also attract a lot more attention Please will you start a new thread

    • I received your images by email. Thanks. However, it will be helpful if you would put them into a PDF document and upload them here. There is also some way to display them on the forum but I'm not sure how it works – maybe somebody can help. Also I understand that you have a video. Maybe you could upload onto YouTube and then link to that video here. It will be useful to us but also it will be very useful to others who visits this thread because it will start because it will help them to understand the kinds of precautions they can take when using Hermes or any other courier and it will encourage them to do so.

Hi, not looking for advice as i'm following the same format as my QQ and P2P complaints. I just wanted to update the forum.

 

After WDA emailed me and said they noticed I'd borrowed a lot and they would freeze the interest on my current loan and arrange a repayment plan to help me, I thought it was great. After that the hassle started, constant phonecalls including to my work, even after I asked them to remove the number from their records. I put a complaint in about how poor their service was as they had offered something to me, yet started treating me as if I had defaulted. Letters with default charges 3 weeks before my DD was due etc. 8 weeks later I got an email saying they had been in the wrong and they would remove £25 off my loan, hardly the most generous offer, but an acknowledgement at least. The rest of the email ahd incorrect information on it in relation to my balance etc. I emailed back expressing my surprise at the information on outstanding amount etc. I also asked for all the information on my accounts and what I had borrowed / paid. I got a reply with the correct info on the account but no response on the additional info I asked for. Last week I emailed again to ask when i'd receive this info. As I still haven't received something today I decided to do my own digging

 

I have found all the emails for loans in my Hotmail and was able to piece together all the payments, loans, interest and rollovers. I have had 37 separate loans, and during that time I've rolled over 20 times. This included one loan that was rolled over 10 times, then a payment plan put in place for 6 months to pay it off, and a loan issued again the month after!! Loans started at £150 per month borrowed and up to £640 (repaid £800) between March 2009 and October 2015. Total interest paid seems to be around £7,300

 

I have put in my complaint for irresponsible lending (the 10 month roll over one that took my 16 months in total to pay back and then immediately be offered another should be enough to show that!) and i'll await their response. I'll update if and when I hear anything

Looked online on my WDA login in, and under my payment plan it used to say: payment due date - 29th February, it now says payment due date 30th November. Seems a bit strange. I wonder if they will still try and take payment as agreed. This wasn't something I went to them with, they actually approached me to break my repayment down

Seems that now I've raised a second complaint with WDA they have put the account on hold and will not be collecting while the complaint is under investigation. I'll just have to wait and see what they come back with

Received a 4 week holding letter "despite our best efforts, we are not in a position to give a final response to your complaint"

 

I've already supplied them with a copy of my credit report showing loads of late payment markers in 2010 and 2011 and then again from 2014. It also shows the other payday loans on there. And although I've borrowed since 2008, I asked for a refund on all interest since June 2011 when I had 10 months of rollovers. June was when I ended up in a payment plan with them over 6 months, before they then continued to led the month after and increased my credit amount. Thought i'd give them a negotiation point rather than just say I want everything back, which is greedy. Regardless of what I think of PDL they offer a service that I've used, so asking for all interest back is a bit of a cheek.

 

See what comes in 4 weeks time

Hi Martin, thanks for the message. Don't worry, I have another thread under the Quick Quid part of the PDL forum, and had some excellent advice off the team here. I have added this thread as its a different business and hopefully my experience will help someone else in the same boat

Just as an update on my complaint with WDA. I have had loans with them since 2009 through till today. I had numerous roll overs and for one loan did this 10 times, followed by a 6 month payment plan and then reloaned a few days later. I complained to WDA and asked for interest back from loan 11 through to my last loan after my 10 months of roll oves, till end Dec 2015. The last few loans were instalments rather than an actual payday loans.

 

To help their investigation I sent them a copy of my Noddle credit report, some screen shots from my Experian report showing late payment markers and mentioned my loans with QQ and PTPD at the same time. Thought it would help

 

The 8 weeks were up yesterday but received an email this morning, upholding my complaint for the payday loans, but not the instalment loans, which to be honest I can see why. However they have refunded on the interest from loan 10 through to my last payday loan. I made it out to be around £4.k but with 8% added they offered just over £7k. I have an outstanding loan of £225 so they paid that off from the refund. I got my email this morning, replied straight away with my bank details that they asked for. The money was in my account today, although in a number of separate payments, most of which were £700. I guess this is the highest amount they lend for a loan so that the most they can pay in a transaction

 

This money has helped me pay off a loan that was in arrears and catch up with my mortgage which was 2 months behind. For the first time in 6 years I can breathe again. many thanks to all that offer their help and experience
