LBC with Clive Bull, Saturday, 15 September 2018
Saturday, 15th September 2018

Mike & Clive in the LBC studioClive opens by asking Mike if those customers with payday loans from Wonga still have to pay the debts back. Clive then asks Mike who is most likely to buy the debt book from the Wonga after it recently went into administration as reports were emerging that Church of England (C of E) is an interested purchaser.

Mike explains why he feels it will not be the C of E that will buy the debt book but instead a consortium, possibly set up by the church, and if this takes place why this might be seen as contentious.

Mike reminded Clive that consumer debts are already being sold off cheaply all the time by the banks and credit card providers. The purchaser is always a debt collector who then goes on to claim 100% of the loan amount outstanding, so Mike asks why treat Wonga customers any differently?

Listen - BBC Three Counties Radio - Johnathan Vernon-Smith 2/8/18
Thursday, 2nd August 2018

Mike ThomasMike Thomas founder of DebtWizard.com was talking to Johnathan Vernon-Smith on the impact the Bank of England interest rate rise could have on consumers with credit card debt and those already in some form of debt solution such as Debt Management Plan (DMP) or an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA).

Mike explains how any interest rate rise could make monthly payments in an agreed payment plan to creditors come under strain and offers information on what can be done to help those affected.

Jonathan then asks Mike about the benefits of 0% interest balance transfer on credit cards and how these can be a good thing, can't they? Mike surprises Jonathan with his reply and warns why these are under review by the regulator as they do not work well for everybody.

Mike then slips in the actual cost to the credit card borrower for every £1 they have on their credit card when they make just the minimum payments each month. It's a real concern and all credit card borrowers should be aware of the sums involved.
