I have been receiving texts and emails threatening an unannounced doorstep visit from MMF regarding an alleged debt with a payday firm from 4 years ago which remains in dispute (the amount not wether it is wed or not) I still have communication open with the original firm and no evidence that it has been passed to MMF.

 

this is the latest couple of emails along with my response. is there anything else I could be doing?

 

If you decide to take this course of action then the police and OFT will be informed.

 

Please provide evidence that you have authority to pursue this alleged debt and evidence that it has been passed to you from MacKenzie Hall as this issue - in my opinion has been resolved - at the very least it is in dispute. This approach is evidence of harassment so please communicate with me by email only to resolve this matter.

 

I have no intention of making an appointment with you and any further threats of such a visit will be dealt with by the relevant authorities.

Please contact MMF office on 01138876876 to pre-book a Home Visit appointment, otherwise our doorstep agent may have to arrive unannounced. Ref :xxxxxxxxx

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Thank you for your correspondence. Firstly, this alleged debt has already been dealt with by McKenzie Hall so I would need evidence from Wageday or McKenzie Hall regarding any outstanding balance at all.

 

Secondly, I am happy to take correspondence by email to resolve this issue but as you will be aware, you need to make a formal appointment to visit my home address and I am not happy to do so.

 

Please provide by email a statement of outstanding (if any) sums along with the original loan agreement and an assurance from either Wageday or McKenzie Hall that you have their authority to contact me.

 

Kind regards

Odd only now reporting this to CRAs, strange if MH have had their grubby hands on it's defaulted already, so their threat is meaningless and a breach of OFT Guidance ( misleading business practice). Default by the original creditor before sale is the norm.

 

 

Would you like a letter drafted that may get rid of this.

 

 

Check credit files today if you would like a letter a little more history would help.

thank you for the offer !! brig

 

TBH since my divorce 10 years ago rebuilding of my credit file is not a priority

so i'm really not concerned if they notify credit agencies.

 

I haven't used any form of credit for 4 years or more and don't intend to get caught up with it again.

 

I just want to get to a stage where they pass the file back to Wage Day

and I can make reasonable monthly payments

 

MH jumped on the case just at the point that i was negotiating repayments with WageDay

and the waters got so muddy with various letters and admin being generated automatically

and contradicting each other that I COULDN'T pay back

because MH had it in dispute and WD had it registered as out with a DCA for once nobody wanted to take my money !!

 

just want these aggressive guys at MMF off my case

 

as the tone of their correspondence and threats of visits continually day after day

is a major stress when i'm trying to keep it from the kids.

dx 100 has transferred the whole thread so don't worry.

 

 

We can certainly get this constant harassment stopped, it highly unlike to get passed back to WD if they have sold the debt.

 

 

Does MMF state that is acting on behalf of Wage Day at any point or have they said they now own the debt ( the approach needed will vary).

It doesn't state either way. this is the first email communication I received from them.

 

Dear Mr xxxxxxxxx,

HOME VISIT- Pre-Appointment Notice

Our Ref: Mxxxxxxx

WageDayAdvance Payday Loan

Debt Value: £1,062.00

We note that we have not heard from you in response to our earlier communications.

Your file is shortly scheduled to be transferred to one of our Home Visit Divisions.

 

We are happy to try to resolve this matter without conducting a Doorstep Visit and would ask you to contact us by telephone or email to discuss repayment terms.

 

Please note that if we do not hear from you, then you will be visited to assess your personal circumstances with a view to passing your account to our Legal Department.

 

We would, lastly, advise that if you are able to make a lump sum settlement offer, then we would be willing to allow a 25% discount on the outstanding balance and to waive the default costs and interest that have not yet been added to your account balance.

 

Please contact us urgently on 01138 876 876 quoting reference Mxxxxxxxx

Unless we hear from you within 5 days, then your account will be prepared for transfer to the Home Visit Division.

Yours faithfully,

 

Doorstep Collections Dept.

Have checked credit reference files for this account? Try Noddle (Call Credit) the service if free).

 

 

If you do so you may find this debt listed as a 'Mail Order Account' or similar one of their quirks so look at the balance and compare to what they are claiming.

If you ever do a F&F again always include this line, "no further sell on of the outstanding balance" never ever pay unless you have this in writing and keep the letter in a safe place.

but am I not then going to be giving MORE personal information that the DCA will have access to by using the lists provided by these agencies? at least at the moment i'm not 100% sure they know which doorstep to go to by only communicating by email. I have had nothing at my home address from them in writing.

Get that complaint going and block that number. If they use different numbers, get those numbers recorded and use it in a complaint. You can also take legal action for harassment as you have told them not to call, they ignored you, kept calling, and even used multiple numbers.


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've written the OFT complaint form and will send .... is it 100% that they cannot doorstep call - particularly after the emails expressly not wishing to make an appointment and offering email communication?

Yes. If you tell them not to call, they absolutely cannot come. They will be in breach of OFT guidance, the terms of their credit licence and potentially harassment laws.

 

Be warned, MMF have complete disregard for the law. Thats why you need to stay strong, stand your ground and tell THEM what is going to happen. Dont let them tell you.

I've just noticed that Rob sands came from McKenzie Hall. is it a coincidence then that a file that was being dealt with by them is now being dealt with by MMF? he hasn't taken a list of their files with him has he??

No, let's just say there was some 'data and personnel interchange' taking place the time Sands left MH.
