  1. Hiya Folks, I received a letter from Moorcroft's earlier today, its a notice of intended litigation(thats how its worded in the letter). I admit to falling behind with my agreed monthly payments, this being due to me being diagnosed with cancer and everything going to pot! My brother informed them on the telephone of my medical situation and we didn't hear anything until yesterday. My thoughts are to write to them and explain why the payments have been missed, and to enclose a cheque for my usual amount as a measure of goodwill and informing them that I will re-start the monthly paymen
  2. sillygirl1, forgot to mention that I do owe UU the money:-( however, the quality of our drinking water is disgraceful, as we have had it tested(I must find the photo and show how bad it is - we purchased a water filter system which also removes fluoride). I will research whether we do have to pay for water when it is of such poor quality! Namaste, seeker27

  4. sillygirl1, thanks for the advice which I will take on board. Also, I'll refrain from sending a cheque! Any ideas on how to word a letter? Namaste, seeker27

  6. Thanks for the email address and to answer the address question I sent it to Leicester. Cheers!
  7. Thanks for your advice. I no longer entertain contact with any DCA on the telephone. I admit I did speak once, but it was on my terms - however it was a one off as I have been well advised by the wonderful people on this forum. I shall write to both "parties" again as I believe the DCA is in-house - can't remember the name at this time! seeker27
  8. How do you work out what is owed? Please excuse me if I appear dim. I have a number of issues on the go and suffer with severe pain and my meds make me so tired - mentally I'm on a go slow:-(!!! Appreciate any help - thanks in advance. seeker27
  9. Hi! I wrote to A&L about four weeks ago regarding claiming back my bank charges as I am on benefits. A&L have so far not responded. However seeing how they have disgracefully treated other people in this thread I am seriously thinking of getting a basic bank account before proceeding further. One reason for me taking this route is my chronic heallth - in a word its dire! I tire easily due to my pain and also the meds I take. I would appreciate any input from some wonderful and kind souls in this very supportive forum.One final question - is there a decent basic bank that anyone wo
  10. I wrote to A&L over four weeks ago regarding unfair bank charges as I am on benefits. They have not responded to my letter and I am wondering if I should re-send my letter again. Thanking you in advance for your advice. seeker27
  11. Hi All, This is in connection with Council Tax Arrears - which I've now paid fully! I was late with a payment to the DCA and they then put a bailiff on my case! I did get some excellent advice from this forum which was very beneficial in dealing with the (illegal) tactics of the bailiff regarding their fees. I wrote to the council informing them of the conduct of the bailiff and DCA, plus informing them that I would be paying them directly(plus a copy of my letter to the DCA); which I have now done and my arrears have been paid in full. I hand delivered my letter to the One Stop Shop
  12. This is fun...kind of! A&L passed the debt to a DCA. I corresponded with the DCA enclosing a financial statement with an amount I could afford. This has been refused by the DCA!Now A&L are also writing to me about my debt to them! Confused! I am! I will sit down later and read all the letters and respond accordingly. Has anyone else experienced similar?!?!
  13. Alliance & Leicester have passed my debt to an agency after my letter with financial statement and offer. A friend has told me that as the original debt in not with the DCA that I don't have to pay the DCA. I would appreciate your thoughts on this! I have spoken to the DCA informing them that I will send them a financial statement with an offer. They have requested proof of my being disabled and want a phoyocopy of a letter to this effect. I do not want to send any such documentation as this was not asked for when I applied for the loan, so why should I do this for the DCA? I do
  14. An update from me! The DCA to which I had been paying £100 a month ceased to deal with me due to my making a late payment, they then sent me a letter from a Mr ****** (a bailiff) with his mobile number to contact; which I did. Mr ****** told me that my balance was £300(roughly)! This was news to me as I had calculated that my remaining payment was £93.50! Our conversation carried on with Mr ****** saying, "I'll give you until the 16th April - but I'm putting my head on the block"! I then turned to this wonderful forum and was baptised with wonderful information! I wrote two let
  15. Thanks very much for the above advice. I visited our One Stop Shop last week and handed over my letters regarding the fact that I am paying the council tax arrears directly to the council and not the bailiff(I have copies of what I sent both on my PC and in my filing cabinet). Also included was a copy of my letter to the bailiffs office asking for a breakdown of their charges(£140 for ???!!!!). I only have one payment left, end of April and then the arrears are paid and cleared! I will be glad when this episode has been done and dusted!!!
