PostSubject: Buying on credit from Currys PC World   Thu Sep 25, 2014 1:12 pm

We recently purchased a new washing machine from Currys PC world. I was about to pay with my credit card when I was offered free finance for 6 months. It seemed foolish not to accept this offer even though the amount was only a little over £400. The request for credit was declined by Creation consumer finance. No explanation was offered. I checked my credit rating with Equifax PLC as they had supplied the rating to Creation. I have a perfect rating of EXCELLENT, having NEVER failed to make any payments on or before the due dates. Our credit card and bank accounts were all highly rated. We would not mind if a good reason had been offered. I contacted Creation, and received an e mail by return asking for our address. This was supplied again by return. All this was on Monday 22-09-2014. To date no further e mails have been received from Creation, despite sending three chasers. This has put a black mark against my credit rating, even though I have an excellent record.My advice is that if offered credit by Currys PC World, ask if this will be via Creation Consumer finance Ltd, if so unless you want to risk a black mark against your name, decline the offer.

Would not touch them with a barge pole after they sold me a grey import then refused to
sort it out when it would not accept any installations,updates etc.

The branch manager who towered over me and said in a very menacing voice "Curry's never ever give refunds". to which I replied "Maybe you didn't but that was until I purchased something from you and You will give me a refund".

I involved Trading standards and Hewlett Packard and my money was on the table within the week. Done and dusted.

To date I have no complaint with Currys, I will wait until The machine arrives. I have always avoided Face Book like the plague, but have now relented, and posted about Creation Consumer Finance on Currys Face Book page.
