Hi

I have received a mail yesterday from Merligen investment limited.

There are three pages in the envelope.

One with Merligen investement logo and the other with £Money Junction logo.

 

both have the same body of text which I shall copy here:

 

14 December 2017,

Re: Money Junction limited/Curlywig Limited

Your account New reference balance due

[redacted] £1072.91

[redacted] £12

 

We give you notice that Money Junction Limited assigned to Merligen Investments Limited all of Money Junction Limited rights in to and under the above detailed account on 30 November 2017.

 

As a result of this assignment the full amount outstanding on the accounts is now due to Merligen Investment Limited.

 

Following the assignment of these accounts Merligen in vestments limited is the data controller of your information in respect of these accounts and has the same rights to give information to credit referencing agencies about the personal debt that you owe in respet of these accounts, for example if you have fallen behind with your payments.

 

Your accounts are now being managed by Moriarty Law Limited and all communications and payments should now be directed through Moriarty Law Limited.

 

Please ensure that you or your 3rd party representative who is advising you, contacts Moriarty Law Limited following receipt of this letter.

They can review your circumstances and agree an affordable repayment amount. The process can be dealt with quickly over the telephone. Please contact 02031264544 and their advisors will be pleased to assist you further.

Yours failfully

signed: Merligen investment ltd.

 

The other page is actually the same body of text and signed at the bottom: MoneyJunction.

 

Now,

I do not recognise the amount owed or the companies involved.

 

I have a personal debt with Barclays Bank which is running smoothly and I have never been behind the payments.

All my bills are paid by direct debitlink3.gif and only store card I have is with NEXT and I am paying them back on time.

 

I rang the the 0203 number and the office was closed left a message saying I received their letter but I don't recognize the content and left them my phone number, no one has called me back.

 

There is another phone number for Money Junction at bottom of their letter and its out of action.

The 'Curlywig' I searched for on the internet and it is a PPIlink3.gif company.

 

 

The Merligen is an investment company but I don't exactly understand what the nature of their business is, are they debt collectorslink3.gif?

Why haven't they been more specific and say what the debt is for because I do not recognize it.

I never had a demand for payment from any of these companies.

 

Yesterday as you can imagine I was first shocked then angry then sad.

But I have decided to try to get to the root of this problem that has presented itself coming to Christmas!

they know when to strike, don't they?

 

sorry to go on but I thought someone here might be able to shed some light on this matter, maybe people had similar circumstances?

 

 

I am planning to phone them tomorrow as its a Monday and then perhaps go to Citizen Advice.

Thank you for reading my post

1styou don't phone anyone

let alone a fleecing DCA that has

no legal powers whatsoever.

 

a DCA IS NOT A BAILIFF

 

 

looks like these are payday loans that you or p'haps someone using your details have taken out.

 

have you moved recently?

Don't ring powerless clown outfits, you reinforce their delusions of grandeur, and they will harass you till the cows come home.

 

IGNORE everything, IF you don't recognise this?

 

I am planning to phone them tomorrow as its a Monday and then perhaps go to Citizen Advice.

Thank you for reading my post

 

This suggests you DO know what it's about.


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!

Thank you for the reply dx. No I have been living in the same address for 17 years.

So shall I just go to advice centre or leave it, don't know what to do.

 

This suggests you DO know what it's about.

I don't know what its about like I say in my post.

 

I phoned the number given to enquire about the letter. How that shows I know what its about?

 

Just ignore it?

 

what if they take that as non replying and take further action?

 

this is the first letter I had from these people.

HA ha ha ha, what ''further action'' do you possibly think these clowns can take?

 

DCA's are POWERLESS, they are NOT bailiffs.

 

You've made the fatal mistake of ringing them, now some goon will want his commission, and will mark your file as 'mug awaits fleecing'.

 

Just because a letter drops onto YOUR doormat in YOU OWN HOME, claiming, you owe them money, does not mean you have to respond to it.

I get what you are saying, its just I am a very anxious person and prefer to get stuff sorted.

Ok if I ignore and just keep the letter and if they continue sending me letters then act? at what stage should I get further advice from advice centre?

 

So they are Debt collection agency? sorry I am terrible at these kind of stuff. :)

 

I was so shocked that I phoned and I regret it now they will keep ringing, I just have to ignore them I suppose.

 

But can they do these stuff, like just make up a debt and go after someone for it? its fraud.

You don't need to get advice from advice centre, do you owe them this money?

 

Yes?

 

No?

 

If you don't recognise it, then you DO NOT respond to it under ANY circumstances.

 

If you've left them your contact details, then you will need to keep a diary of calls/letters you're about to receive, with a view of taking legal action against them for the criminal offence of harassment.

 

When di you last check your credit file?

 

Do you have a common name?

 

Forget all the rubbish you've seen on TV, these are NOT bailiffs, they are POWERLESS, they have NO legal powers whatsoever, my cat Fifi has more legal rights than these clowns.

 

Yes Meriglen are a DCA, still powerless to do anything, they are 3 directors from the equally desperate Fredrickson Intl fools.

 

Just keep a diary of events, especially regarding any harassment they cause, they're a relatively new company, only formed in 2012.

I have a very unique name and my cousins who have the same surname all live in USA.

 

I just went on a credit reference agency and registered for the 30 day free trial.

I checked my credit report.

 

Everything seems settled,

my account with my bank shown and the loan I have with my own bnck shows are all up to date.

My credit score says very good, 618 out of 710.

 

The most recent searches has been in October by a company called Insurance Initiative limited noted as General Insurance search

(I don't know what for)

and before that in September from Aviva and lexirisk again typed as General insurance.

 

September was when I renewed my car insurance so I think they are legit.

Nothing seems out of ordinary.

 

All my closed accounts, like credit cards of the past say settled.

 

DX, Just seen your post.

I just used Credit Angel.

I searched for credit reference agency and Credit Angel came on top.

never had any debt management plan.

PPI claim yes.

 

They keep ringing still and I tell them I already have.

 

About 4 years ago though and I got about £2000 but it went to official receiver.

All the companies were refusing to pay and the PPI company themselves sent me form to take it to ombudsman.

 

I gave all information from the start to this company so they knew but still kept on working on my case.

 

The last I heard from them was 2 years ago and they said they get their fee from the official receiver and that's the end of it.

This is not them.

I don't even have the paperwork I throw everything away.

I don't remember the name of the company but it was not Money Junction/Curlywig.

sort of points to what I've found out which is why I asked.

 

I bet those PPI reclaim fees did not get repaid

 

I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Thank you for the reply.

I really hope so Dx.

I really appreciate the advice and input.

 

If there are any development on this I'll post it on here so not only it helps me but might be helpful for another person.

it is an email,

if they send you a proper letter then you know that they are chasing you.

 

At the moment they could be chasing someone totally unconnected from somewhere else in the world or even a fictitious person.

 

Block their email address., they will write if they have anything to say that is worth their time.

 

No phone calls, no replies to email.

 

Letter through post only and let them make the first move

it wasn't email, it was sent by second class post.

 

At first I thought it was junk mail looks really tacky.

Everything about it looks unprofessional.

 

I actually sent an enquiry email today because I phoned Moriarty and a man answered the phone,

he hung up on me as I was giving detail of their letter.

 

So I emailed them.

I didn't give any information about myself though,

 

just said I like you find what they're on about

because I don't recognise neither if the companies mentioned neither the amount they say I owe.

Hi I got exactly the same thing yesterday.

 

Never heard of any of them and of course they don't mention what the communication actually relates to. The clincher for me is the 2 letters from 2 unrelated companies Money Junction and Merlin Investments are identical, yet the company that have now taken over the issue Moriarty Law haven't sent anything at all.

 

The MoneySavingExpert site seems to have a lot of references to these companies and suspicious communications.

 

Interestingly I only got this after recently blocking calls from a bunch of 0203 numbers where there is no one at the other end (unless you speak) I always pickup the handset and wait for unknown numbers., then as soon as you hang up your mobile rings. The mail and Telephone preference agencies are clearly NOT working.

 

My Credit report is clean.

 

I would wait and see and if chased again get them to send a "provit", of what when how much etc with copies of anything related to the alleged tranascation.

You'd do better ignoring them entirely.

 

How you would get them to ''provit'' when even they don't know what they are chasing? IGNORE them.

Thanks for these comments......

I got one too virtually the same date.......

Ignore

My opinion.....

They can’t do a damned thing without absolute proof.

And I have just moved out of the address they sent to

Of course, I’ll send them a forwarding address

I have an update......

I am one of the lucky ones...

I figured out what this was about.....

 

A few years ago we had a PPI claim through one of these no win no fee companies.

 

Cutting a long story short, it was the fees for that claim.

 

Luckily I had saved the complete payment records.

I emailed Merligen and they have confirmed complete closure of this account.

 

I would say the original firm who sold the “debt” will now have Merligen on their backs :-)
