two welcome finance loans

Recommended Posts

I had a loan with welcome that uk search are now chasing me for.

I provided a financial statement offering to pay £1 a month.

 

They come back and said they wanted a tenner.

I wrote back saying financial statement shows I can only afford £1 and subsequently set up a standing order.

Heard nothing for about a month

 

i have received a letter stating i've ignored previous requests to sort the debt out and they are considering formal action.

I genuinely cant afford a tenner a month so am now worried about what they will do next.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

and previous to that?

 

BTW: they have NO LEGAL RIGHT to see any of your pers fin details.!!

 

90% of welcome agreements are riddled with mistakes like mis-sold ppi and are inflated by unlawful charges etc

 

do you have the agreement?

tell them again about your proposal for £1 a month

 

inCASSO SOLICITORS?? THEY ARE PROB UK SEAECH OWN SOLICITORS AND I WOULD NOT WORRY TO MUCH

 

IT SEEMS THEY ARE ONLY COLLECTING ON BEHALF OF WELCOME AND ARE NOT THE CREDITOR SO THEY CANT TAKE LEGAL ACTION IN THERE OWN NAME.

 

IF YOU DO GET A CLAIM FORM, I CAN USUALLY TIE THEM UP IN KNOTTS SO DONT WORRY TO MUCH AS WELCOME AS A RULE HARDLY EVER GO TO COURT AS THEY DONT LIKE THE DIRTY LAUNDRY AIRED IN COURT

Incasso are absolutley nothing to do with UK Search LTD, The are one of the biggest recovery companies in the UK and have offices world wide. They actully was awarded with "Legal Recovery firm of the year". Dont take these people lightly they are known to take action.


As always please check and double check what myself and other Caggers inform.

Incasso as you know from previous posts on here have been involved with Welcome since October 2010 and as Incasso are LEGAL Recovery firm (Solicitors) they certainly can take action.

ive uploaded the letter above guys.

 

Thanks for your help with this

 

Hi guys

Just to update I sent a letter to Incasso telling them about my offer to Uk Search on 23/01.

 

I've had a letter this morning from Uk Search saying they will not refuse any payment and cannot accept any instalment below £5 a week.

 

They say unless I pay this collection procedures will contunue and doorstop agents and/or county courts claims claim could follow.

 

I'm really worried now as I dont want anybody coming to the house as my partner knows nothing about these, as the debts stem from before we were together.

letter from uk search.pdf

 

Hi = I dont have a copy of the agreement.

 

I have attached a copy of the letter I received from Incasso, my subsequent response and then the letter I received today from UK Search.

 

The last payment I made was to Uk Search for £1 last month. The last payment to welcome was the one on my iva which I think was around november 08

 

thanks again for your help

urm.. i don't like the look of all this, somethings not right.

 

you say your have two welcome loans in the letters

 

i would SAR welcome and get everything they have & the agreements

 

tell us the history with welcome please

 

most welcome debts are littered with unlawful charges & mis-sold PPI

you p'haps need to get reclaiming on two fronts, the charges & PPI on both loans

that should kill the balances.

 

dont pay anything more than £1 for the present

if they wont accept it tough luck on incasso etc.

 

if they continue to wave their arms CCA them & also state you are disputing the balance as it contains unlawful charges & PPI.

how do you mean doesn't look right?

Do you think they may not be acting lawfully?

 

Originally I had 2 unsecured loans with welcome finance.

I got into a mess with my debts and went through an iva.

I paid the iva for about 2 years before it failed as i couldnt afford to pay it.

 

About 6 months after that I was chased for 1 of the Welcome loans by lewis debt receovery.

They accepted my £1 a month offer no problem as have about 8 other creditors who were included on my failed iva.

 

In the last month or so UK Search have contacted me out of the blue with regards to the 2nd welcome loan.

there will certainly be stuff to reclaim from both debts i bet

 

get that sar fired off to welcome.

 

i would continue to pay welcome direct not through any dca's [though lewis is welcome anyhow]

 

pay direct using internet banking using the details you already have for welcome for each debt

 

lets wait for the full history by the sar.

 

are these two debts linked or totally separate?

The 2 debts are totally separate.

I also sent a cca request to uk search last week.

I will fire of sars when I get home tonight.

 

Would uk search not get funny with me if I stop paying them and pay welcome direct?

Is the debt not now their's to recover?

 

Thanks for your help

unless you have received a doc entitled notice of assignment from the current leechers pay the OC.

 

you only need to send of ONE sar request to welcome

 

that will get you back everything they hold on you on all debts.

 

if you must

write to uk search and inform them and their muppets that you are paying the oc direct and that the account balance is in dispute due to unlawful charges and mis-sold ppi/gap/etc etc

 

have you any idea if you have ppi btw?

Hi Guys

To update, Sat morning I received a letter from Welcome acknowlodging the SAR and that paperwork will be with me shortly.

 

Today I habe received a letter from McKenzie Hall chasing me for the 1st welcome loan which i have been paying £1 a month to Lewis Debt Recovery for since 2009.

 

Surely they cant send me 2 to agencies for 1 debt??

 

With the 2nd loan I've notheard a peep from UK Search and had no reponse to my CCA request. Can they still chase me for this now the timeframe has elapsed?

 

Thanks

Hi all.

 

Have a bit of a problem with this trio.

 

I had a welcome loan which I defaulted on and was initially passed to Lewis Debt Recovery.

I agreed a payment plan with Lewis and set up a standing order which has been going out since 2009.

Havent heard a peep of Lewis since so as far as I was concerned eveyrthing going along tickety boo.

 

Then in Feb this year I received a letter from McKenzie Hall stating they had been instructed by Welcome to collect the debt.

Called them up and wrote to them explaining I was already on a payment plan with Lewis.

Said over the phone they would put account on hold and contact Welcome as account obviously shouldnt have been passed over to them. Never heard anymore of it

 

I got another letter today from McKenzie Hall some 6 months later.

Called them again and the woman said Welcome have instructed them to proceed to collect debt as they have had no payments in over 2 years.

 

Informed her its been paid by standing order since 09 direct to Lewis Debt Recovery, but she has said action will continue as Welcome dismissed the query.

 

Not sure where I stand with this can Welcome and Mckenzie Hall do this?

Hi, I take it Welcome did not inform you

that MH had been assigned to collect the debt?

If so then you can tell MH that you have no liability

or obligation to pay them, and that you have a payment

arrangement with the Lewis Group and they should refer

their queries to them or Welcome as you will not be paying them.

Next a formal complaint to Welscum demanding to know why

the debt has been passed to MH while you are paying Lewis,

and that your require a statement by return of post showing all

payments paid to Lewis and passed to Welcome.

IMO if Lewis have denied any payment for two years then I would be stopping all payments, or at the very least, reducing them down to the token payment of £1 until this is cleared up.

 

Not only have Lewis failed to send you a statement of account annually, they have clearly failed to record your payments, so who has been living off your payments for the last two years??

 

Stay OFF the phone or you will only end up speaking to phone drones like this who have no idea what they are talking about.

Hi Boo, it's Welcome denying any

payments for two years, so what have

Lewis done with all the payments if none

have reached Welscum?
