      Have an issue with them as they have sold a secured loan to Coast,
      They are now going to repurchase the debt and apply the ppi claim to the account ( which is a different account from the ppi claim )
      If they repurchase the account what will happen when they go into liquidation with the secured loan account

              The same letter from the liquidators, says the same but they changed the alleged loan to a mortgage and used the name ' Prestige Finance" seems the wove a really tangled web, a matter of wait and see, they would have to " prove' Some how we were liable I think.

                In their latest statement of affairs they have entered the book debt as something like £54million with expected returns of £0 on it.

                With the secured charge you should be able to write to the liquidators and ask them to remove the charge from your property now they have confirmed they will not be enforcing the charge or collecting on any remaining balance of the loan.

                Originally posted by KPMG
                Prior to the Joint Liquidators' appointment, outstanding loan balances due to Welcome Finance were frozen with effect from 31 October 2019 and no further interest and charges will accrue.

                We will not be collecting (or taking steps to pursue) any outstanding loan balances due to Welcome Finance as at the date of liquidation (16 December 2019) and no payments should be made against loan balances.

                ¬*
                The Joint Liquidators are in the process of contacting customers identified as having a potential redress claim against Welcome Finance, providing further information on how to submit a claim in the liquidation.
                ¬*
                Customers who have already made a redress claim against Welcome Finance will also being contacted as part of this process.


                If you wish to make a claim against the Company, you must submit your claim using a proof of debt form (available to download at the link below) by the claim submission deadline, being 31 March 2020.

                Just like when you send us a letter through the post, we can receive e-mails - so

                DogTired, I don't know where Prestige Finance fit in, does your letter say exactly the same as the Welcome Finance letter but referring to mortgage and Prestige finance instead of Loan and Welcome Finance ? I can't see anything on the KMPG site or Companies House ( I'm probably just being thick somewhere on this )

                  Our letter says the same and does not mention Prestige. It was a few years ago we had the letter from Welscum changing from a secured loan to Mortgage and name to Prestige. (Still got it somewhere)! You have to bear in mind that at this time they had not proved the alleged account existed and tried with collection via¬*¬*Mucky Hall and could not find any signed paper work. Think it's best to let sleeping dogs lie!
