Cash Genie Nonsense - Redress and Default Removal **MMF FOLDED**

Recommended Posts

Call the FCA and discuss it with them.. they should be able to sort things out for you going forward. At least you will have registered a complaint against their atrocious behaviour.

 

"We do not investigate individual complaints." :???:

Thanks for that sillygirl1.

 

Meanwhile, I submitted a "prove-it" demand to MMF. I received a reply today.

 

"We write with regard to the above referenced account number and recent communication.

 

Please find attached as requested:

 

1. Copy agreement information.

 

Please contact us within 14 days from the date of this communication to agree a payment plan which is both realistic and affordable to you. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can visit our website http://www.mmile.com where you can complete a financial assessment form and submit it to us with your payment proposal."

 

The copy agreement info states, correctly, that I took out a loan on 23/12/13 for £200, to be repaid in two separate simultaneous payments, one of £60 interest, one of £200 principal, on 31/12/13. Except Cash Genie only took the interest, and rolled the loan over repeatedly of their own accord and without my knowledge, month after month.

 

MMF have also supplied a "statement of account" for 04/05/15 to 04/05/16. This gives the date of the agreement as 30/05/14, amount of principal loan advanced £200, opening balance at start of statement period £60, closing balance at end of statement period £60.

 

Can they not see what's wrong with this picture??

Having gone through my bank statements I can also see that the loan arrived in my account on 27/12/13 (i.e. 4 days late) and the interest was taken from my account on 30/12/13 (i.e. 1 day early)......

Quick update. I fired off a formal complaint to MMF on 15th November.

 

"Dear Sirs,

 

FORMAL COMPLAINT

 

Your statement of account is incorrect. I repaid £260 to Cash Genie, which was the amount due to them under the original terms and conditions of the loan agreement.

 

Cash Genie broke their own terms and conditions by:

1)Releasing the loan on the 27/12/13 (i.e. 4 days late).

2)Debiting my interest repayment on 30/12/13 (i.e. 1 day early).

3)Rolling over the loan of their own accord, with neither my knowledge or consent. This is a blatant rip-off technique to attempt to defraud customers of additional interest repayments. It is also something for which Cash Genie are notorious, and one of the reasons which led to their liquidation and redress programme.

 

Cash Genie also issued a default notice on 1/8/14 for £0.00, which is clearly nonsensical, and entered a default on my credit report. This gave an account start date of 30/5/14 (incorrect), a regular repayment of £140 (incorrect), a date of default of 30/6/14 (i.e. one month before the default notice, and one month after the incorrect account start date) and a default sum of £260 (nonsense). This default subsequently vanished.

 

You have since added a default to my credit report with an account start date of 30/5/14 (incorrect again), a date of default of 25/6/16 (not only incorrect, but well outside of the 3-6 month period by which defaults should be placed). You are not the original creditor and therefore may not add or create a new default, only update an existing one. The existing Cash Genie default was removed. Your entry on my credit record is entirely incorrect, invalid, misleading, defamatory and unlawful. I must therefore demand its immediate removal from all credit referencing agencies, or will report you to the FCA, consider legal proceedings against your organisation and seek financial compensation.

 

I also note your company has recently agreed a redress programme with the FCA.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

[me]"

With a pdf attached giving themselves 8 weeks to provide a final response.

 

Meanwhile, the texts and letters from Moriarty Law have continued, threatening the usual court action/CCJ/6 more years of credit report hell etc...

 

Shouldn't Moriarty Law be drinking a nice big fresh cup of shut the **** up whilst this is the subject of a formal complaint?

Hi

I think it's safe to say that you can prove that CG messed up. Can you confirm whether the letter says ' Letter Before Action'.

 

I feel an email or letter to Moriarty (nice name eh sherlock) instructing them to cease their actions as this matter is under dispute with MMF. Failure to do so will result in formal complaints to them and their regulatory body and to refer this matter back to their client.


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Hi, it says "FINAL DEMAND BEFORE PROCEEDINGS" :roll:

 

I'll email them today.

UPDATE:

 

Amusing email from MMF today:

 

"We have reviewed the content of your complaint and are unfortunately unable to comment on any of the service issues which relate to Cash Genie. Each of your concerns relate to actions which occurred prior to us purchasing the debt and would need to be addressed with Cash Genie.

 

However, as Cash Genie have now entered into insolvent liquidation, we have taken the decision to write off the remaining balance and close your account. Any information which is shared on your credit file will also be removed."

 

So, a result.

 

However, this raises a couple of questions which have been at the back of mind for nearly a year:

 

1)If a DCA is "unable to comment" on the conduct of an OC, or verify their information, how are they able to act on it?

 

2)If an OC is in insolvent liquidation, why are alleged debtors being chased (rather than, say, creditors, for distribution of the insolvent company's assets)? All seems a bit arse about face to me...

 

Perhaps I should follow up with a complaint regarding MMF's conduct to the FOS anyway.

 

Thanks for all the help - it has certainly kept me going!

Well done. That is what we like to see.

 

As the matter is now closed, there will be nothing to go to the FOS about.

 

When a DCA buy a debt, all they get is the basic details so when push comes to shove, they will be unlikely to substantiate what they are claiming.

 

When a company becomes insolvent, the administrators have to maximise what income they can get and by selling the loan book to MMF, they got something back for the creditors. MMF take on all the risk and will succeed sometimes and in others will give up.

 

Give them a month to clear your credit file and if they don't do as stated then you can complain.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
