New to this forum and got a bit of a long winded story so please bear with me

as any help or advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.

 

In 2012 I had £400 loan through the speed credit website and like most had issues paying it back.

This in turn made me seek help through Step Change (CCCS at the time)

who helped me set up a debt management plan to pay off all of my various debts to other payday lenders,credit cards and bank overdraft.

 

The loan from speed credit has caused me many issues over the past few years

and even though I was in a debt management plan the original outstanding balance of £400

quickly accelerated to £2570 at the point of last contact via Marshall Hoare.

 

 

I have always made payments through step change to this debt.

Last debt collection company I had contact with was Digital Financial service.

 

 

Payments to DFS suddenly stopped

and after a few months step change advised me that I had to contact Wilson Field regarding the outstanding balance.

 

 

Wilson Field informed me that DFS had gone into liquidation and they were to collect all outstanding balances.

This was all done over the phone and I have never received any paper work from Wilson Field.

Payments have continued to be made via step change again.

 

In March this year I got a letter from a company called BPO

stating they had been passed my account from cash choice uk ltd

who had bought the debt from the original lender MCO capital.

 

 

The letter offered me the chance to clear the outstanding balance of £3100

(unsure as to why the amount owed has increased so much!)

if I paid a one off payment of the original loan amount £400.

 

 

According to BPO, cash choice had passed the account onto them in December 2015.

I phoned Wilson Field to see if they still had my account in their control

as they have still been cashing the monthly cheques sent by step change

and to tell them about BPO claim that they owned the debt.

 

 

According to Wilson field they are still due the payments each month

until the balance is cleared but they said they don't hold any details on their systems relating to individual cases.

 

I decided to contact the Financial Ombudsman regarding the matter.

Two days ago I got a letter from BPO confirming contact from the Ombudsman

and in turn they had returned my account to Cash Choice uk

and all further contact should be made to them.

 

I am at a loss as to who actually legally owns this debt.

To date I have repaid nearly £650 towards the debt to the various companies who have passed it about between them.

I feel I am not getting the help needed via step change

so looking on hear to see if anyone is in the same or similar position.

 

Once again any help is greatly appreciated

 

 

many thanks

sounds like you are being cash cowed to me.

most of those names are wellknown for it.

 

take a look at your credit file.

that will tell you who currently owns the debt

then send them A CCA request.

they have 12+2 working days to comply

once they fail

quite honestly I would, If I wee in this situation

stop payments.

 

sadly, as you'll find with your other debts too

step change

do no checks on the legality of debts

esp those sold to a DCA.

 

thirdly

stop phoning these fleecres

you need a paper trail.

they are NOT BAILIFFS

and have

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS.

 

esp Marshall Hoare.

, who are NOT bailiffs despite their name!

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thank you for your reply.

 

This may sound ridiculous but nothing has appeared on my credit file regarding this debt. I would have been happy enough to pay back the original loan amount plus a small bit of interest but there is no way I would be paying back the full amount. I just don't want something to come back and bite me years down the line would rather try and get it sorted.

 

Thanks again for your advice

I second DX's thoughts, cash cow for certain.

 

Speed Credit is Digital Finance Services, or at the very least it is the same boss??

 

This account must have been terminated? Did you receive a default notice which gave you a date by which to rectify your account?

 

The continued adding of interest and, possibly charges, is wrong, and these can be reclaimed, I'm pretty certain, that if you were to raise a fuss about this, to the relevant authorities, you would see these legal loan sharks capitulate and write this off, as has happened with many a wonga con.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Have never received any paper work from any of the companies mentioned in my original post. All contact has been from them sending emails from which the last one was back in 2013. Have never got a default notice either and nothing shows on my credit file about this loan.

 

I'm thinking I might need to phone and cancel payments getting sent towards the balance via step change. Also think I will send a CCA to both cash credit uk and Wilson field and see what happens from there. Will also keep in contact with the ombudsman and see if I can get any help from them regarding the matter.

 

Many thanks again for your help :)

Ok thanks I will. Originally had 13 creditors and it's now down at 4. The other 3 debts are pretty low compared to this one so that's why I want to get this sorted. The three of them will be paid of within the next two months so just want to get myself sorted again instead of feeling so down about this problematic company and who actually owns this
