Cash Today Limited-Who is responsible-A detailed discussion

member profile picture

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 “It shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16” – 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.

Kind regards,
Peter Trinder
Trust UK

I guess both the countries are trying to neglect their responsibilities. We, as a consumer can do our part by spreading the word. People should keep themselves away from such companies and do proper research before making any financial deal.

I found this message on another topic:

Posted: Mon Oct 03, 2005 8:28 am Post subject: I.C.S.

ok, on the subject of I.C.S. and Cash Today, which are linked.
I am an employee of Cash Today for the collections department who try and get the money back from defaulting americans who take the money we loan them in good faith and then don't repay.
In the transcript, (that's the phone conversation) it states, and i quote 'do you understand that the loan you are receiving is being made by I.C.S./Cash Today Ltd of London England, that the terms and conditions are subject to the laws of England, and that you submit yourself to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts? If yes, please state your full name and today's date.' When you agree to this, you agree to submit to the laws of England, which includes wage garnishments. We actually don't give out the loan to people who are self employed so by misleading our company into believing you have an employer, you have committed fraud.
as for the person who was not accepted for the loan due to the amount of hours they worked, i have no idea why this was the case. We only refuse loans to people who have worked at their job for less than three months, maybe this was the case and the representative did not explain what they meant properly.

You can lodge your complaint with the FTC and the BBB and anyone else you like, as we are not an american company, we lie outside their jurisdiction.

as long as someone meets our requirements to take out the loan and makes the payments when agreed, you should have no problems with either of the companies you complain about so vociferously.

and as for Miss - 'We must stop these people from England who fail to abide by American law!' - YOU GO GIRLFRIEND!

AS MENTIONED IN CASH TODAY COLLECTIONS HELPFUL ADVISE ABOVE, COULD THIS BE THE SAME STUART THAT IS THE TRAINING MANAGER FOR THIS COMPANY. MAYBE THAT IS WHY HE IS BEING SO DEFENSIVE, TRYING TO PROTECT HIS COMPANY..HMMMM....BUT FURTHERMORE HE IS SAYING THAT THEY FALL UNDER UK LAWS BUT I BEG TO DIFFER AS PER THE UK ORGANIZATIONS STATES THAT THEY FALL UNDER US JURISDICTION PER THEIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS

I have a loan out currently with Cash Today and also ICS. I was given a address of: 2207 Concord Pike, Suite 417, Wilmington, DE 19803 to send money orders in for my defaulted loan with ICS. If both companies are linked and they are out of England, why would I be sending my payments to Deleware? Wouldn't this make ICS a company under US jurisdiction?

Debbiec, this is what amazes most of us. This company is based in UK and has a call center in Delaware. It is evident that they come under US jurisdiction.

But this company does the debiting from UK which restricts the FTC from implementing any US laws over them.

On the other end, the authorities from UK claim them to be under US laws. I think there is a deep mystery behind it and needs to be sorted out ASAP.

Re: sending in a money order for the amount. Do they allo for a payment plan or do they request the whole amount up front?
