Money Shop (Instant Cash Loans) PDL now Lantern - CCA Agreement Request: Wrong Address


Recommended Posts

Hi to make it simple as I can.

 

I have been chased by Debt Collector over a small debt which at first I didn't recognise. I was sent a statement of account and a Fixed Loan Agreement with all terms and conditions electronically signed in 2016. This was enough to confirm I owe this debt therefore I commenced a repayment plan.

 

Tonight upon studying the Fixed Loan Agreement I noticed it is showing my current address. However at the time I took the payday loan ( Summer 2016) I was living at my previous address which I vacated in 2018 due to landlord selling the property. Since have been living at my current address since late 2018 which is now showing on the Loan Agreement.

 

With the address not showing correctly to what it should have been in 2016 has the Debt Collector committed fraud?

 

I am not attempting to weasel my way out of my own debt (I am obliged to pay this) but if the Debt Collector has done something wrong I would believe it should be reported.

might not be the DCA that did it, but, name names please 

who was the original creditor and who's producing this CCa return?

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi dx100uk, the original Payday Loan in 2016 was The Money Shop Online (Instant Cash Loans Limited).  It is Lantern whom provided me the documents when I originally first didn't know what the debt related to.

 

As part of the documents I received yesterday from Lantern one was a letter dated 22/01/2021: Notice of Assignment from Instant Cash Loans Limited to tell me this was being assigned to Lantern Debt Recovery Services Ltd.  This letter confirmed the assignment is in effect from 30/12/2020.

 

Hope this info helps.

Heres my thoughts, I'd complain - As long as you know that you didnt update the address with ICL / TMS and you are very direct with Lantern - They will back off. 

I know that because I managed to get them to do it. I believe this would likely resolve your issue. 

 

Others may have a different opinion. 

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Money Shop (Instant Cash Loans) PDL now Lantern - CCA Agreement Request: Wrong Address

surely it doesn't matter if the address was/wasn't updated, the loan originates from before the time of the move and holds the wrong address for that time period.

 

sadly Lantern (MMF) are very well known for doing these dodgy CCA's which id why they changed their name,

Thanks both for your comments.

 

I'm worried that if I cancel the Repayment Plan now they will initiate Court Proceedings.  If I were to make a formal complaint telling Lantern the address is incorrect, I'd suspect they could go a bit further and replace my current address to show my old address (obtaining it from Credit Referencing) and forward it back to me again.

 

Was thinking on the idea of a Formal Complaint telling them the Fixed Sum Loan Agreement is invalid without telling them what is inaccurate about it.

 

What's your thoughts on this?

 

Thanks for your replies.

Its a hard one... 

 

A) Go to court and let them shoot themselves in the foot.

B) Complain and see if they close it down. 

 

I honestly cant advise you because Im not in your position but If I were in your shoes, I might complain - You have them bang to rights here if they have messed up in the way you suggest.

so they are going to goto court when they have already produced fake paperwork...

not a chance. exp when MMF were fined by the authorities for doing exactly the same thing many many times years ago and changed name to hide the fact.

 

stop paying and stop being scared of a DCA, they are NOT BAILIFFS

and have

ZERO legal powers on any debt ..no matter what it's type.

Thanks both again for your answers

 

I will fire out a Formal Letter of Complaint today telling the Fixed Sum Loan Agreement is invalid but I won't tell them why.  I will also tell them I want the proposed repayment plan which was setup for Direct Debit 1st June 2021 to be put on Stop and that I am obligated to contact the Financial Conduct Authority regarding the agreement.

 

I can't believe these DCA's would actually do things like this.  When I read the agreement after giving my proposal of payment I felt like hitting my head off a table multiple times for not seeing it right away when I saw the incorrect address.

Don't rely on anyone cancelling the DD mandate for you - do it yourself by instructing your bank to cancel the instruction.

I got a little too eager and sent the Letter of Complaint only a few minutes before I saw your reply there dx100uk.

 

I'll not get into any games with them from now onwards.  I'll keep you posted on what they reply with.

 

I appreciate everybody's replies over this issue, I never really use forums but certainly will do my bit to contribute where I can.

you should not ever be using email for debts

gives them a free way to harass you..

 

and of course gives the game away upon what is wrong with their bogroll.
