    Good. 59% upheld, and a tripling of complaints tells its own story.

    Debt Camel has been at the forefront of this, and the dfw board here deserves a mention, particularly this thread

    But, but we were told by the industry that they're all good now and they've learned from the warnings from the past about their conduct? That now if people have complaints it's their fault and they should take more "personal responsibility"

    Pish. They're the same as they've always been, predatory lending never changes and people learning that they're being preyed upon and realising they have an avenue for redress is only a good thing.

    The majority of complaints being upheld show that the industry has learned little from past mistakes and they still use debt crises as a way to make a fast buck.
