    • hi BankFodder, I  actually  thought the same as looking at the email address for one!  Also  license has  gone up!  Is it worth me informing  the real tv licensing  about this?   Thank you    Sandy

    • I'm very sorry that you haven't had a full response to this so far. I'm afraid this looks as if it may be outside our experience. You should monitor this thread over the next few days – and hopefully somebody will either give you the answer or refer you to the correct source of help. I'm wondering whether you have got an experienced family lawyer knew that you could go to. They may well offer some initial advice free of charge. I wonder if you have a law centre not too far away. I suppose that you could try citizens advice – although I can imagine that this is outside their experience as well but on the other hand they may be able to refer you on.  
    • It's a scam email. You should bin it. Don't click any links and don't give any personal information. I dare say that if you hover over the purple update button you will find a pop-up with a link address which has nothing to do with TV licensing. Let us know. Simply hover your mouse over that link and see what pops up. Anyway it's a scam

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I've had a small loan with Welcome for about nine months now, and haven't had any problems with them. I keep up with repayments and haven't heard anything from them since the money cleared into my account. I made it clear when I applied that I didn't need any PPI or any other insurance, just the loan and they were fine with that.

 

I agreed to pay the money back over two years, so I assume when the 24th and final payment is made I won't owe them a thing.

 

Reading the other posts it's clear that people feel a lot of hostility towards the company, but if if you pay them on time every month you shouldn't have any problems.

I see you agreed to pay back over 2 years.

 

Did you check the APR?:eek:

 

Unfortunately, if you ever get into financial difficulty (and I hope you don't), then I am sure you will be back on this thread ranting with everyone else.

 

What about the people that can't pay anymore. The one's which through no fault of their own are unable to pay anymore?

 

The one's which were told they had to have PPI in order to get the loan!

 

The one's in financial difficulty and desperate only to be sold another loan to pay off existing one's!

 

I could rant on for ever about these sharks but as I am sure you have already read, there are plenty of people that have already done this!

I did check the APR, and it's high but that's what you get when you deal with companies like Welcome. I have the greatest sympathy for people who can't pay through no fault of their own, people who have lost their jobs etc. but there also seems to be a section of people who don't want to pay back as much as they agreed to simply because the APR is stupidly high, or the PPI is massively expensive.

 

For the record, when I applied they never said "no PPI = no loan". Granted they wanted me to buy it, but I simply said no and they reluctantly accepted it.

do you work for them????

 

No I'm a prison officer, it's just they gave me a loan when nobody else would, they made no attempt to disguise the big APR, they didn't insist I took out PPI and I've had no problems with them, that's all. I accept it might be a different story if I went to them and said I couldn't pay.

 

Just thought an objective viewpoint would help.
