  1. Thank you all so much! I will definately be putting in a complaint. My Husband put the advert on as a sole trader and no longer trades due to no work. Do these people actually sleep at night? I will be writing a letter forthwith and also a copy to OFT as you say, why should they have all the fun! Cheers peeps
  2. Tyvm! I will be putting in a complaint! Nationwide must be the vampires of the debt world - I tried to resolve with them but they took me to court instead (horrible people) Thanks for info + advice on NCO
  3. I appreciate what your saying but easier said than done when the are threatening court action, can they do that if they have been paid every month? Is this under £500 aggresive seeking behaviour normal? I have been sent to court 3 times by nationwide back in 2007 (I have dmp but nationwide wanted blood instead of cash) so Im familiar with how it happens (although most of it has been blocked out now) Can they take us to court?
  4. Hello everyone, My Husband owed Yellow pages about £700 for an advert back in 2007 - due to him being out of work, we were unable to afford to pay it (we also faced repo, but thats a happy story for another day!) Anyhoo, NCO took over the debt and my Husband agreed to pay them £40 a month. He has been doing this to date (bar the odd late payment.) However, the debt is now down to £348! He has been contaced by NCO who have told him that as the debt is under £500, they will now be "aggresively" (their words, not mine) seeking the full amount.......which we dont have! They have now sent my Husband a letter saying that the debt will be passed onto a solicitor S.C Leatham-Locke who will pursue us through court for the remaining figure (even though we are paying them £40 a month, can they do this?) I dont think I could stand another court hearing. My Husband called them today to try and resolve the matter - "MR ROberts" infact turned out not to be MR ROberts, who was rude to my Husband and told him he couldnt speak to a manager. 2nd call - Husband spoke to another man, again my Husband requested to speak to a manager - he was told with a laugh that it "wasnt going to happen", my Husband then mentioned he had every right to speak to the manager under the statutory rights act 1976 - the man laughed and told my Husband he was making it up and hung up! 3rd call - another person who was rude and hung up on my Husband, 4th call - my husband requested to be put through to a manager staright away - answer was "sure, whats it regarding?" my husband said it was to complain about the last 3 people he had spoken to, the person then said "it was me you spoke to earlier and if you think im putting you through to a manager, your wrong, goodbye!" then hung up!!!!! Im outraged and also worried that we will end up in court again! I would be grateful for any advice! Thanks
