    Default UAE debt IDRWW chasing in UK

    Hi Guys, was pointed to this forum by a friend.

    I left Dubai 5 years ago due to redundancy and had to leave a large loan.
    I was contacted a couple of years ago by CWD and agreed to pay what I could on a monthly basis direct to the bank in UAE.

    At that point the debt was 520,000 AED,
    I have managed to pay back 82,000 AED since then but my job has changed and I am not able to pay as much.

    I have now received a lettericon from IDRWW stating the debt is now 595,000 AED and that I need to contact them in 14 days!
    Not sure what to do and just looking for some guidance.

    Cannot believe I have made an effort to pay back some and the debt has gone up.

    Any advice or experiences I would be very grateful to hear.
    I do not have any assets in the UK, property is rented etc so not sure what they could do.

    Should never has started repayments.

    Do you have UK assets such as a house to protect ?

    Always up to the UAE Bank to fund any court action. These DCAicon's just provide a cheap way to obtain payments.

    If you have no assets in the UK, then there would be little point going after you, if you stopped paying.

    Stop paying and ignore them.

    this is why creditors in the UAE cant get access to EU courts and the debts are unenforceable despite emplying a UK company to write scary letters to you.
    They are stuffed unless you return there

    I have read elsewhere of people being taken to UK court over these debts, is that incorrect? Should I contact them and say I have no UK assets?

    no they pay people to get taken to court
    then use certain websites to publicise it
    saying come here and we'll represent you
    and or
    we'll do a deal with them.
    pay us some money....then you're hooked.

    your problem is you blindly paid them..and they think once a mug always a mug...just one more letter.

    if you want to convince yourself...just try and PROVE where all this money you have been paying them has gone...
    I can 100% guarantee the original creditor knows absolutely NOTHING about the payments you've made till now
    ..and haven't SEEN A PENNY OF IT!!

    let alone you ever being contacted by IDRWW in the 1st place...…...

    I did not send any money to CWD but directly to the UAE bank by transfer.

    I may contact UAE bank directly to say what a joke it is that I have tried to pay something and they have just increased the debt, so therefore what is the point! Probably will just lave alone though as no point poking the bear as it were.

    ok thank you
    it wasn't clear you'd been paying the UAE debt directly..

    so ..what you are getting is std practice now that you've stopped.

    well, one good thing then..
    atleast you know the money did come off the debt...

    Yes and the debt went up so what a waste of time, you try and do the decent thing and get royally screwed.
