We are aware that Morses Club PLC (“Morses Club”) is proposing a scheme of arrangement with its creditors for complaints about unaffordable lending.
This was affecting customers who received a loan between 1 April 2014 and 2 August 2022 and made a redress claim in respect of that loan on or after 11 August 2022. However we're now aware Morses Club has expanded this to customers who received a loan between 1 April 2007 and 2 August 2022.
If it’s approved by creditors and the court, customers with complaints will be able to make a claim for redress directly through the scheme. Until then, the firm is not currently in a position to pay any redress awards we make, even if we were to assess your complaint and instruct it to provide compensation. If the scheme is rejected by creditors or the court, the firm has indicated that it would become insolvent and would be unable to pay any redress awards we make.
In these circumstances, we’re not currently progressing complaints further or taking on any new complaints affected by the scheme. We’ll be contacting consumers who already have complaints with us to let them know the next steps. We will make further decisions about new and existing complaints in light of any further developments.
