Our response will also:

  • inform you that, if you remain dissatisfied, you may refer the complaint to the Joint Administrators of MoneyThing; and
  • enclose their contact details.

7. Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”)

Usually, eligible complainants are able to refer their complaints to the FOS , however since MoneyThing is in administration, the FOS is no longer able to look into complaints against MoneyThing. Instead, if you are not happy with the final response provided to you by MoneyThing, you will be able to escalate your complaint to the Joint Administrators at Moorfields. The Joint Administrators will review the complaint and MoneyThing’s response to you and make a final decision on whether or not to uphold your complaint. If the Joint Administrators determine that redress is appropriate they will invite you to submit an unsecured creditor claim in the Administration.

  1.  8. Closing complaints

MoneyThing will regard your complaint as closed in the following circumstances:

  • once MoneyThing have sent you a final response;
  • where you have told MoneyThing in writing that you accept an earlier response that MoneyThing have sent to you; or
  • if you refer your complaint to the Joint Administrators, when the Administrators inform MoneyThing that the complaint has been closed.
