Cash Today Limited-Who is responsible-A detailed discussion
Date: Fri, 10/14/2005 12:07
I am hearing that cash today is under uk laws and that they do not abide by us laws and basically they do not call under the fdcpa but i recieved an e-mail from the bbb that responds to complaints on uk customers and this is what was said:
Thank you for your complaint about cash2day4u.com.
Trust UK is the e-commerce standards agency. As such, it approves the codes of subscriber & membership bodies and hears complaints about webtraders based in the UK. It does not maintain records of all those engaged in e-business in the UK.
I have spoken to my colleague Daniel Landes regarding this, and have looked at the website myself. Unfortunately I note after reading through the company's terms and conditions on their website that they fall under the judiciary of the USA. This is clear in the second paragraph where it states â€œIt shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16â€ â€“ this law is not relevant to the UK and as such does not have any bearing. This dictates that this company should be judged under US law and not UK. Further to this I would be weary of the credibility of the letter that has been received from an ex-employee of said company. I've looked at heathmill.com and this is a marketing consultancy and does not appear to be anyway related to cash2day4u.com.
I regret therefore that we are unable to help you and the best point of contact to try to resolve this query is the FTC in Washington (www.ftc.gov/). However Daniel has forwarded on your complaint to the Scambusters division of the OFT (the official regulatory body for such matters) here in England and they will be in touch if there is anything that they can do.
Rest assured that we are doing as much as we can to help you in this matter.
So who really is responsible! who will help us!!this is a sad situation and i hate that i and many other people fell into this hell hole!

By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
