Hi, a few months back I took out a payday loan with 24/7 moneybox and I wasn’t able to pay it back on the due date.

 

Not surprisingly as soon as payment didn’t go through on the due date they were emailing, leaving automated messages and sending texts.

 

I kind of put my head in the sand until a friend of mine said you need to deal with it but I didn’t want to call them up and be bullied to paying back what I can’t afford.

 

then suddenly I got this textmessage from them offering me a discount of 75 percent so I replied back to the text message they sent if I wanted to take advantage of this limited time offer and it was ignored.

 

I got more texts none offering me a discount .

One replied back saying I could set up a payment plan of £10 a week!

I replied back asking what happened to my discount offer as I would have paid this and be done with it.

 

im happy to communicate with them using text as I have a record of the conversation and according to them it’s one way I can resolve the issue.

I’ve tried to resolve it using texts but they ignore every reply but still send rude emails and leave voice messages saying that doing nothing will make matters worse!

 

do I ignore it and if they take it further then say well i have proof I tried to resolve it when you offered me a discount but you didn’t respond back to me?

 

any advice please and I won’t call them as I will feel very pressured and don’t need that kind of stress

 

thankyou

I wrote a letter following the guidance given in the reclaim guide to 247.

But it seems just like my previous correspondence with them using texts they have ignored it and sent me an email saying they’ve now sold the debt to ARC Europe.

do I have to send them a letter as well?

    • 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....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
