    P2P lenders facing major losses



    Investors who threw their cash into a peer-to-peer scheme offering returns of up to 15pc are facing major losses after their loans turned sour.

    Users of the FundingSecure platform poured thousands of pounds into loans made against “park homes” – bungalow-style static caravans.

    However, these investments failed, leaving customers facing losses of 86pc, 92pc or in some cases 100pc of their cash, depending on when they invested.

    Well, there's a surprise!  A 15% ROI investment is NEVER a safe bet.  Why do people believe that they can get high returns with little or no risk?  I despair

    The administrators are surely legally bound to chase the directors for any deficit in the director's loan account.

    I recently followed the winding up of a firm local to me (all documentation was filed on companies house)  as I had a peripheral business connection, not financial thankfully, with the sole director. 

    The firm was under by around £85000, small change in relation to some of these companies, but the administrators pushed hard for repayment of a director's loan account of "only" £35000.  They went to the point of seeing how much equity was in the director's sole property, which was not worth following up according to the filings.  The director had to borrow money from relations in order to stop any action against him.  It still took two years for the company affairs to be wound up despite its small size.

    Surely for larger amounts this should be standard practice?
