  1. Jeez, that's rubbish. I have no advice to offer, sorry, but didn't want to R&R. Good luck. Hope someone has an answer.
  2. Hi BD, It HAS been a long time, hasn't it? Everything is more or less fine, no change really. Every three or six months some of our creditors contact us to say our agreement has now finished, I send off new I&Es and they accept for anothe 3/6 month period. Hubby has been working since January and has contract til the end of the year. Still no chance to save any money to pay off large amounts of the debt the money doesn't seem to go far these days. Thanks for asking Hope everyone else is ok.
  3. Thanks. It's a very recent debt (August 2009) so not requested CCA - might do so though.
  4. Hi everyone, Hope you're all well? Quick update: We've had a letter from HFC, offering us a settlement figure, which I think is approx. 1/3 of the total debt. We don't have this money at the moment, the offer is valid for 30 days in total, so about another 3 weeks. As hubby is currently out of work again (although hopefully not for long, fingers crossed) we're not in a position to make any payment at present but would like to make a F&F payment to them when he is working again. Would it be a good idea to make a counter-offer to them? Thanks guys (and girls!)
  5. Thanks for your replies. Am going to sit down with hubbie tonight to make payments and work out who is still charging us interest - can't remember who it is at the mo without looking. We have sent updated income and outgoings to companies who asked, allowing for all our costs, and two of the three we sent these to have accepted our proposed payments (which are still quite low and manageable). BD, hope you are right that they will accept very low F&Fs at some point as with increasing costs we have no chance to save any money at all. Most of the time am coping quite well with the situation but must admit I've spent the past couple of weeks worrying a lot about our debt and how we will ever pay it off, and that we will never be able to move as we can no longer obtain a mortgage - our house is too big and expensive but it is irrelevant at the moment as houses aren't selling anyway.
  6. Just a quick update: Received a couple of letters asking us to phone them - which of course we won't do, as we're only prepared to correspond in writing! We CCA'd Sant ander loan (this was our oldest debt), it took them a long time to get back to us but they have now sent a copy of the original form we signed and requested we call them. We've responded with a letter saying please correspond in writing, here is our personal budget sheet with ins and outs, we can pay you £.... Also had a letter from M&S asking us to contact them, done same letter to them with personal budget sheet. Will see what comes of it. Next have extended by 3 months time we can pay £1 per month. The others are still accepting low payment. Most have passed to debt recovery cos. and frozen interest etc. bar one, I think now. However, due to changes in employment, increases in prices etc we're not managing to put any money away, it all goes on car repairs, clothes for daughter (which I only buy on Ebay anyway!) etc. Feel we will be paying this off from beyond the grave but at least we are still here. Hope everyone else is fine and coping.
  7. Thanks for those tips, Iain and Elsa. Probably best not to offer them our email addresses.
  8. Ah, the token payments they accepted were offered whilst he was out of work in January and are £1. So can't go much lower! Agree re conversing via email though - will offer them the option and tell them no point ringing etc. ....... Thanks.
  9. It seems I spoke too soon. No sooner have I posted that all is well and ticking over nicely, we receive letters from Marks and San tander Cards, both asking us to call them. Have they learnt nothing?! They had both accepted lower payments from us, but I guess it's coming up to review time (it's been 6 months). I'm thinking just a quick letter at the end of the month, saying we are not willing to correspond by phone but please write to us to let us know what you require ...?
  10. Thanks BD and all. Things quiet at the mo. We are making token payments to all bar Santander loan (formally Cahoot), we have requested CCA beginning of May (see above) and have heard nothing else, we are not making payments to them at present (is this the right thing to do?). End of contract looming again and things up in the air so fingers crossed! Thanks for your support over the year guys.
