Hello all, really hoping for some advice on my story, will try keep it short as much as possible!

 

i am going to be brutally honest i developed a gambling addiction about 6 years ago, what started out as fun soon became addictive.

 

one loan turned into another and then payday loans started which were so easy to get ( i know there is responsibility on my side but if you have never been inside a gamblers mind it doesnt work the same way as a normal person when it comes to finding the next " loan " )

 

i am now taking steps to recover from this as all my family knows

in the meantime i wonder if i can claim for irresponsible lending against the below firms due to the fact i had several defaults on my file,

 

one as recent as 2018 and multiple accounts showing in arrears/defaulted from 5 years ago, multiple search history on my file which shows how desperate i was to get credit all showing at the time they credit checked me when i applied for a loan with them

 

Mr Lender - 18th Feb £200 - with interest £311

Wonga - 28th Feb - £200 - With interest £234

Myjar - 31st March - £100 - With Interest £150

Cash4unow -10th April - £200 - With Interest £295

Loans2go - 13th April - £200 - with Interest £1019 (took out for longer term)

Oakam - 17th April - £150 - With Interest £311

Peachy - 19th April - £100 initially then allowed me to top up with an extra £200 on the same day - With Interest £556

 

i would like to state that Peachy havent done a credit check, spoke to them this morning and they say they do credit checks, i checked my file on noddle for the 19th and there is no footprint from them on that date under Peachy or cash on go ltd (funny enough in my accounts its registered i have an active loan with them)

 

with all the defaults and accounts in arrears and my credit rating being 1 out of 5 (its at the lowest end of available credit score) surely all this should have alarmed them to consider not giving me the loan and it should have showed i couldnt afford to repay anything.

 

how can they call themselves responsible lenders? surely the defaults themselves should have caused them to say " this person cant pay loans back that are over 5 years old "

 

any thoughts how i should progress with this?

 

i have sent email off to them all lodging a complaint not using any templates as i wanted to write it myself as i dont feel a template really fitted the point im trying to get across to them.

right attached :)

 

well the creditor is Mr Lender, i filed an irresponsible lending claim because of my gambling addiction and the fact i had several defaults on my file at the time i applied and lots of accounts on file already in arrears.

 

one thing i find interesting is that they have lied about what i put down for " other outgoings " i would never put a random number in like £168 i always round things to the nearest £10 or 100 or whatever so i dont know where they got £168 from, the only thing they asked to verify with me at the time was payslips

 

they say my credit score was 549 at the time of loan, on noddle its 1 out of 5 447 score and thats rated very poor so if it was 549 it still would be poor.

 

They say they responsibly lent and checked my credit file even though its littered with defaults from accounts that have not been paid.

 

im wondering whether to accept this offer or take it further? hold out to see if a month or so down the line they will keep reducing the balance

 

thanks for any advice

I think the pdf in post #12 has your name in the name of the document. It would be a good idea to change that.

These loans were supposed to take into account defaults... But if they are lending to you when they can see you arent servicing other debts that that is a BIG No-No...

Off to the FOS You go :)

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
