Hi,

 

I have received a letter from Lantern requesting payment for loans I took out years ago.

 

The loans do not appear on my credit file and have not been on my credit file for at least the last two to three years.

I think I defaulted on most of them six years ago that's why they are not on my credit record.

 

Lantern have called me on my work mobile number once recently, ( within the last two weeks) and I refused to answer security questions because I was not sure who I was speaking to. But they did say they where formerly MMF.

 

I do not wish to engage with Lantern, what steps do I take to ensure I pay them or not

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi I hope you can help.

 

I have received a letter from Resolvecall to my address requesting that I contact them otherwise they will arrange a personal visit by one of their representatives, (they are acting on behalf of Lantern).

 

I think the debts they refer to are over six years old and do not show up on my noddle credit file.

I do not want them to visit my home address.

If they insist please advise most appropriate response.

I live in shared accommodation and do not want others in the accommodation made aware of their visits.

 

Thanking you in advance.

old and new threads merged

please keep to one thread

 

resolvecall or snotcrawl ...sorry scotcall rarely turn up

and even if they do they are not bailiffs and have like every DCA ZERO legal powers.

 

should one appears VERY RARE.. you tell them to leave else you'll call police 101.

 

did you not resolve this in the now merged thread?

 

if your last payment was more than 6yrs ago, then send MMF our SB letter from the debt collection section of our library.

I was logged on but did not get to the library even after several attempts. But thanks for your reply and I have got the sb letter from your link.

 

My concern then is that they can still enforce a ccj because of the following '"...a firm must not attempt to recover a statute barred debt in England, Wales or Northern Ireland if the lender or owner has not been in contact with the customer during the limitation period." 7.15.4 I am not sure if they have tried to contact me during the limitation period or are doing so after.

Hi, I have received a letter from Lantern to a sb letter I sent them. The letter talks about one debt from Wageday which it says will be statute barred in January 2019. The customer reference number on the letter has a balance for multiple debts but only the wageday debt is mentioned in the letter.

 

The letter says:

'

Dear xxxx

 

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

 

We note that you feel the Wageday Advance account should now be statute barred under the (Limitation Act 1980/Prescription and Limitation Scotland Act 1973/The limitation (Northern Ireland) order 1989). Firstly it is important to explain that an account only becomes statute barred if the last written acknowledgment or payment towards the debt is over a six year period. In this case , the original due date was on xxxx/2013 and will therefor not become statute barred until xx/01/2019.

 

If you have an queries or need to talk to us, please get in touch.

 

Yours sincerely

The debts that the customer reference number refers to have not been on my credit file for several years. Ihave not responded to the letter.

 

Will Lantern now put the Wageday account on my credit file and keep it on file for the next six years?

 

Can Lantern use their letter as an opportunity to open up other debts which they have not mentioned in the letter but which I know have been included in the total debt of the balance.? ( I think the debts that have not been mentioned are statute barred).

 

 

Thanking you in advance and as always.

They are talking rubbish!!

Sb is not from the due date!

It from your last payment

 

Typical bs from mmf

What is significant about the date xxxx/2013, was that the date which a payment was due to the Wageday Advance account and you did not pay it?

 

Hi. There was an idea that the COA( the date when the SB period began) was from the first missed payment. No one ever said it was the last made payment, how can making a payment be a cause of action?

See my earlier post

 

It is now established as being the date of the section 87 default notice.

but not in every case. ….

when we start losing heeps of claims because this supposed default notice date is the cause of action

we'll start panicking

until then it means nothing.

That is how I have always understood it. The statute barring period starts from the default date not the last payment unless a payment has been made since the default date.

    • 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.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
