    • As per my Post 19 above the record has now dropped off my Credit Report and my scores are now as follows:   Clearscore= 357 (up 28) CreditKarma = 554 (no change but another report coming in about 7 days).   About what I expected as my scores will not be great as I am using a high percentage of my available credit but a nice result in the right direction, at least nothing adverse.  
    • Wait didn't you say that you sold the car before the incident happened? That should do the job (although they will bully the next owner), so if you are kind-hearted, I would go to that pub and talk anyways for both of your sakes. Just tell the person you sold the car to about this so they don't park it there again.   If you want to write something, this should be addressed to Parking eye as Creditor NOT DEBT COLLECTION and keep a record of posting, and a signed for delivery and a copy of what you sent, should they ever want to escalate it.  Just be careful what you write.    
    • If it's a no powers Debt Collector then ignore it completely, they have no authority at all and contacting them in any way is a mistake as they'll think they have a new mug to hassle and fleece. Scan up a redacted version of the letter.
    • I suggest that you follow the suggestions I have made here in red and also the earlier suggestions I made in respect of compiling a detailed account of expenses to which you have been put, losses they have suffered and any benefits that you might have received from your parents. Also, if they happen to start a legal action against you then clearly you should defend. Their chances of succeeding are extremely remote, in my view, but I think that you would need a solicitor. I would instruct a solicitor to ask the court in the directions questionnaire to make an order that your parents provide security for costs because you could find that they will end up spending a lot of their money and your money on a fruitless exercise and you will have difficulty recovering any of your costs in the most likely event that you finally win the case. This is not my area of experience at all, but I'm extremely surprised that they have found a solicitor who has been prepared to advise them that they stand some chance of success and therefore it is reasonable for them to incur fees by getting that solicitor to write you these letters.
    • Were you a customer of the pub at the time?  Anyways, go to the pub owner and ask if they are the land owners of the area mentioned in the ticket. If they are, say you don't remember who parked there but surely they must have forgotten to sign in with them. Tell them in a nice jolly conversation some complement and how you'd not want this incident to prevent you from visiting them in the future. See if they could kindly ask them to cancel it if they aren't authorised to bring this claim to the court in the pub owner's name. Kind chat goes a long way.   Reason why I am suggesting this is because these parking management contract often have a clause allowing the land owner to cancel this upon request - this is in interest of for example retail sites like supermarket car parks where customer service is of essence. After all they don't want a 1* review on Google. (but don't tell them that!)   If verbal request is not sufficient, you can do one in writing so there is a paper trail. Come back if you need to write that.   Most important DO NOT SAY WHO THE DRIVER IS.

Gone into administration.

 

When the FCA banned them from operating as a Payday Lender, they also ordered CFO to redress customers who had been unfairly treated.

 

Today, they have gone into administration, with emails from the administrator stating the actual figure owed to the individuals, but it won't be paid.

Because their creditors get first pick, and anything left is then distributed between everyone else.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I'm just curious as to why the 34 million redress package was even agreed with the FCA, in the absence of any reasonableness that they'd be able to honour it.

CFO Lending Have Entered Administration Today

 

CFO Lending

CFO Lending Limited – In Administration

 

We, Paul Boyle and David Clements of Harrisons Business Recovery and Insolvency Limited, were appointed Joint Administrators of CFO Lending Limited (‘the Company’) on 6 April 2017 at 11.40am The appointment was made by the directors of the Company pursuant to Paragraph 22 of Schedule B1 of the Insolvency Act 1986 and was filed at The High Court of Justice Leeds District Registry.

 

We can confirm that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has consented to our appointment as Administrators. The purpose of this document is to provide clients and creditors with an outline of the current position, to explain what we intend to do as regards the Administration and provide details of what information we require.

 

Our role as Joint Administrators is two-fold. The first objective is to protect the interests of creditors generally, including consumer creditors. Second, we wish to maximise realisations from the assets of the Company, which may assist towards achieving the first objective. We can confirm that we are working closely with the FCA to achieve both of these objectives and will to do so.

 

The principal asset in this Administration relates to the outstanding loans repayable to the Company (the Loan Book) from consumer borrowers. The Company offered two types of loan: ones often described as ‘payday’ loans and, to a smaller extent, guaranteed loans.

 

Harrisons are the Administrators - Keep an eye on this one ladies and gents.

I'm just curious as to why the 34 million redress package was even agreed with the FCA, in the absence of any reasonableness that they'd be able to honour it.

 

Most of the £34 million was write offs. I think they had to actually pay about £2.7 million in redress. Knowing what a bunch of snakes these people are I thought there would have been checks to make sure they had the money and that the money was ring fenced.

 

I always wondered what the incentive was for these guys to do the right thing as they were no longer actually making money from this business. With companies like Wonga and Sunny it makes sense to pay as they are still in the game. These guys have no doubt been taking monies out of the company in recent months in one form or another with the clear intention of going into administration in April. The FCA have known for at least a month CFO have not been making payments when due and fobbing people off with weak excuses.

It states this under the value of what you were owed -

 

Unfortunately, we do not currently envisage that there will be sufficient funds to enable the payment of a dividend in respect of your claim in these proceedings. We would, however, urge you to periodically review our website for updates in case that position changes.

Perhaps CFO had every intention of making the redress payments (and maybe still will). It is almost certain that since the announcement and the headline £34m figure hitting the press they have had a huge surge in claims for unafordable lending. People would would have been due a payment of £40 or £50 pounds under the redress scheme may well have been due a payment of £1k or £2k if they made a complaint and that was upheld. Clearly compensation in these claims will never be paid.

Cheers - I knew the figure was a bit high as soon as I typed it!

 

My thought was/is that there was no intention to reach the point whereby redress payments were made but rather just wait it out until insolvency. FCA has a few questions to answer here as well.

I agree with this I believe that there had been no intention to pay this redress. Why was this not sorted out by the FCA instead of dragging it on for 6 months

I have logged a complaint with the FCA as I want to know why it was not made clear when they asked CFO to pay the redress that funds were available and why was I told in October I was due a redress to be told yesterday that CFO had gone into administration. I would have preferred not to be told anything and CFO just disappeared.

Its disheartening I know. Just consider yourself free of these disgraceful vultures that they were and move on with everything :)
