    • I agree with BN. Do you have anyone to help you like the CAB or welfare rights at the council or a charity? It seems a shame to miss out on money if you're entitled to it.    HB
    • Hi all   I have a court date for speeding and FtF. Court is 140 miles from my home. I have written to the Clerk of the court for transfer to my local court. I haven’t heard back yet after 10 days. Just want to find out if such request can be granted.   Also, I have been asked to go and work abroad for 3 weeks. I finish the posting 3 days after my original court date. Can I ask for adjournment or do I have to reject my job posting?   Every input greatly appreciated.   Thanks all.
    • Hi, I received this reply today to my dated, signed SAR. I also sent a PDF of the SAR to the people manager via e-mail using the internal e-mail system, and it's been acknowledged so they know it's from me.

    • 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.

£2993 Debt Vanquis Credit Card - Need Payment Plan

Recommended Posts

Afternoon Everyone.

 

I've been reading other peoples threads regarding Vanquis and have come up with good information but have decided to make my own thread to be able to keep track of this and to add to the information hopefully,

 

I also have questions.

This is my only debt apart from my student loan

it is large and I am worried it will ruin my credit score,

 

I would like to get a debt plan for something that I can afford and then maybe make them an offer when I can to have the debt wiped with no CCJ.

 

I owe £2993 with a limit of £3000 as of yet I havent missed a payment since the account was opened in late 2014,

I have up until 2 August 2018 to make a minimum payment of £151 but that will be dificult..

I would like to get the account frozen and then work out an affordable way to pay.

 

One thing I have read on another thread about dealing with Vanquis that it is wise to pay for a Subject Access Request for all my statements,

I think that would be a good idea because my account has always been paperless and the online ones only go back for 12 months..

 

I have also noticed that while browsing a couple of them that there are lots of charges every month like;

Purchase Interest, Cash Interest (But I have never ever borrowed cash against my card), Promotional Purchase Interest, Cash Advance Fee (Again, Never taken cash)

 

I have also seen PPI being discussed but I'm not sure whether that applies to me.

 

What should my steps be to solve this mess,

Learn from it and eventually move on?

My printer is at the ready,

 

Thanks in advance everyone,

 

L.

I don't think there is anyway you are going to avoid a trashed credit file if you don't pay by the due date.

First of all, Thankyou to each and every one of you that spent time to reply to me with good information on what todo next,

 

I have sent my Subject Access Request to Vanquis Head Quarters (Which correct me if I'm wrong its almost imposible to find on their official website.. Transparity is key people! Ha ha.

 

my question being,

While I've been waiting for some confirmation that the letter was received and also the information is being collacted to be sent back to me is my account frozen?

I notice my balance has increased by £120 for no reason that I can see..

 

Is there a seperate letter I need to send them explaining I can't pay,

I need to make a payment plan and the account needs to be forzen asap..

Can you guys help me again please?

After this I will never use Cred Cards again after this..

Thanks again,

 

Vanquished.

Thank you both for your help there, I've written and got the letter in the post.. My plan is hopefully pay a direct debit of £10 a month or similar? I'm unemployed at the moment and have limited private income, Less than £200 comes into my account per month.

 

 

I'm off to work in Morrocco though in November so I don't know when I will be back into the UK, But will eventually so I don't want a CCJ or whatever on my record? So I was thinking of paying the payment nd then when they sell the debt make the debt collector a lump offer of around 15% say?

 

 

Is that optimistic? I don't want to say too much but I do own property but not in my name. Weird situation maybe but I'm not quite a grown up yet and they didn't teach me anything about finance in school.

Yes for sure, I will be in direct contact and be able to email/print and send a letter.

 

 

I'll update when I get a reply from them, Do you think they will sell the debt after awhile?

 

 

Then I can possibly offer a lump sum payment after some extended time.

 

 

It's a shame I've done this, my credit history was just getting as good as everyone else in the area according to Noddle.. But when I pay a percentage payment to the creditor that gets marked as 'Settled' on my credit report right?

I have received a letter today from Vanquis, It says nothing of the letter I sent them.. This letter is obviously a response of type because I have never received a letter from them before

(So far I've only missed one months 3 weeks of minimum payments)

 

The letter says;

 

Expiry of your promotional interest rate

 

Dear so and so,

 

Your promotianl interest rate expires 1-10-2018 and we want to remind you what will happen to your balence if you dont pay the balance in full before 1-10-18

 

The rest is saying now you owe £3104.63 in total and a minimum payment of £410.40 and they are ramped the interest rate upto 19.9% PA

 

Wow.. So they obviously got my letter and thought, Lets up his debt instead of freezing it even though i've lost my income and including my budget.

 

What do I do now in your opinion?

Any help is needed because I really need to get a payment plan in place here this is crazy.

Morning everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any input on this,

 

I have just received a text saying that I ow owe £532.74 this month so they clearly have disregarded my letter and budget sheet.

 

Should I make a call to them?

 

I just want them to freeze interest, and make a payment plan that I can afford..

Anyone with any advice?

I really want to tackle this today its been almost 7 weeks I havent made a payment to them.. I would rather deal with them before they sell the debt.

 

My total amount owed now stands at £3200

Send the second letter from the dca section of the library

 

£1 only now as you've failed to help me

 

Ideally when you propose an offer you should start to pay it not await permission
