  1. . The fraction being tiny, presumably they wouldn't mind stating what % ?
  2. They will likely quote miserly maximum amount laid down in TCs that you agreed to. Wheelchair users often get badly stung in such incidents, to say nothing of their travel plans disrupted. But maybe this [very] small print would pass muster as regards unfair TCs? Oh and have you checked if your travel/household insurance is of any help?
  3. some move from the big sharks to the minnows in the hope of a friendlier service; be aware, however, that u will usually be shunted back, for day-to-day administration, from minnow to shark, eg from ebico to sse.and if u achieve ur aim of a lower bill, sse write hideously nasty letters, triggered automatically by low readings, saying there is [sic] a fault in the meter, so they are coming to replace it .thereby hangs another cautionary tale but a bittoo off-topic for this thread. . go to a comparison site such as "which? " that includes all providers, not just those that pay the site commission, or enter a google search for "utilities/electricity/gas" "no standing charge". . if ur bills are moderate-to-high, u are unlikely to benefit unless perhaps u use no gas for one half the year and spend most of the other half on the turks and caicos rather than turkey and stuffing. . advance warning : the CMA in its infinite wisdom intends to allow comparison sites each to arrange exclusive deals so that the consumer will have to compare the comparisons to find which is cheapest - in the interest of more competition, lol
  4. I have been handling debts for several ppl in a similar situation, although not in EU, with an average value of over £10K. . The purchasers didn't even write to the overseas addresses but still to UK -probably meaning they didn't believe their goodbye letters. Statute bar dates came without a single court claim. . But a word of caution - PRA were not among the purchasers, they could be different.
  5. Translation from Reston Semantic Jungleese: . Yes you're right it's statute barred
  6. Or do you mean that MK took over the default which Barc had applied in 2010 - as permitted. But why would they do that if you were paying up until 2011?
  7. . Yet you say MK defaulted you in 2010, in which case no longer anything to do with Barc . Something here not right
  8. Hence why so many American DCAs and debt purchasers entered the UK market, flouting their muscle with gay abandon.
  9. mike , FORGET all the cobblers you've acquired from a certain site which promises the earth but leads only to perdition, court would laugh at 3 letter process , novation etc etc , it's as invalid as it is bizarre
  10. Yes i agree . I suppose i meant a collective you rather than toxic alone. Don't know why any solicitor, even Reston, expend so much on Arrow with their sprawling and poorly managed outsourcing system.
  11. Alternatively, you could set up standing order yourself, doesn't require Arrow's intervention. But it does require you to ensure funds are available each month, to avoid possible penalty charges from your bank. Shoos clearly saw no hope of any shekels from you.
  12. You said you have several debts. An SAR can cover all your dealings with a company so if any are with other parts of Lloyds Banking group ask for all . Save yourself less future bother and give them more.
  13. Compello not Capello
  14. Hi Will . Long time . . . Oddly enough I was wondering about you the other day! . Don't pay much attention to the porn you've received about sale to Hoist . Everyone on MK books has received it , regardless of court claims etc, as part of sale of Compello Group- though I'm slightly puzzled as to why you've had only two. Maybe the third is completely written off. . Cabot did exactly same with Marlin assignments as Hoist with MK. I seen letter not long ago for an SB one. "Welcome to Cabot" and they'd get in touch bla bla [they didn't] and how they'd be offering all sorts of helpful ways to pay. . hehe, totally delusional, the lot of them
