  1. I have now finally repaid all of my creditors & want to put up what I did in case it helps someone else.

     

    1. I wrote to all creditors asking for copies of credit agreements and statements

    2. I reclaimed £2000 in PPI from Llouds & £250 in bank charges from them

    3. I then wrote to all creditors asking them to write off my debt - Hoist were the only one to agree

    4. Next, I wrote offering just under 20% of what I owed to the rest & this is how I got on:

     

    Company Balance Accepted %

    Hoist £8903 £0 0.00%

    Apex £7,200.73 £2854.46 39.64%

    Barclays Bank Plc/EGG £1,122.45 £446.968 39.82%

    HBOS - New Record £8,448.40 £6250.71 73.99%

    Lloyds Bank plc £2,681.15 £1328.56 49.55%

    NCO Europe Ltd £1,087.70 £194.76 17.91%

    PRA Group Ltd £1,240.48 £491.716 39.64%

     

    30,683.91 11567.1815 37.70%

     

    HBOS were by far the most difficult to deal with. They would only respond to my letters if they were sent recorded & they just wouldn't budge.

     

    I realise that some will say that I shouldn't have paid any & fought them all the way but I now don't have to worry about letters arriving through the door, phone calls, my employer finding out etc.

     

    Thanks everyone for all of your help.

     

    Joining this forum gave me the confidence to tackle this.

  2. I know it has been a while since updating this post but I had written to all creditors asking them to write off my debts and wanted to give them some time to respond.

     

     

    One has agreed and another is still looking into my request.

    Three of them I have written to offering approx 20% and I am currently waiting on a response.

     

    This leaves me with two that I am looking for further advice on:

     

    Lloyds Loan

    - this was with Westcot who (after requesting the credit agreement) have passed it back to Lloyds.

    Payplan have told me that they will pay the money to Lloyds

    but should I still be paying it or do I stop the payments until I hear from Lloyds?

     

    Intelligent Finance - they can't send me the original credit agreement

    however have sent some sort of mock-up agreement.

    How do I stand with this?

     

    I am looking to take over the DMP from Payplan myself as I don't feel they are much help

    (they told me I couldn't consider F&F payments without at least 80% of what I owe)

     

     

    I need to get a good understanding of how my credit file works etc before making any changes.

    These debts all dropped off my file years ago,

    if I suddenly stop making payments to any one creditor,

    can the debt re-appear on my file?

     

    I really appreciate all of your help so far & look forward to your replies.

     

    Regards

  3. I have been working through the debts one by one and this is where I am with each:

     

    Apex - sold by Lloyds - 7622.32 @ 32/mth - CREDIT CARD Credit agreement has been requested from Apex however I sent a DSAR to Lloyds and they have sent a copy directly to me. The statements that I have received from Lloyds showed PPI so i have sent a mis-sell claim away today. I will wait & see what Apex say about the agreement.

     

    Barclays - sold by Egg- 1188 @ 5.12/mth - CREDIT CARD Credit agreement has been requested

     

    HBOS - cahoot - 8903 @ 38.33/mth - CREDIT CARD - Hoist/Robinson Way have kindly agreed to write off the debt so I have asked Payplan to stop paying them

     

    london scottish - sold by intelligent finance - 6864 @ 29.55/mth - UNSECURED LOAN Credit agreement has been requested and I have raised a complaint as this is the third request. So far they have sent me £50 compensation for ignoring my previous requests but I have not cashed the cheque yet. I am waiting to see what the outcome of my cca request is first.

     

    NCO - Amex - 1156 @ 4.98/mth - CREDIT CARD Credit agreement has been requested

     

    PRA/activ kapital - Lloyds - 1307 @ 5.63/mth - OVERDRAFT Credit agreement has been requested and I have managed to claim charges back of £290 so far which they gave directly to me rather than paying it against the debt - I assme as it now sits with PRA.

     

    Wescot - sold by Lloyds - 2428 @ 10.45/mth - UNSECURED LOAN Credit agreement has been requested. There was one in the DSAR but again, I will wait & see what Wescot say.

     

    As always, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Thanks to this site, I now know that I have been cash cowed which is why I am trying to take control of my situation.

     

    The Santander credit card was taken out approx 12 years ago & defaulted around ten years ago. It is no longer showing on my credit file. I don't want to just stop paying it as they will continue to harass me surely?

     

    I am assuming that they won't entertain my request to write off the debt so my next step is to offer a full & final once I get some money together. Just not too sure where to start with this though?

  5. As advised in another discussion I am going to start a new thread for each of my debtors. It will help me document my progress and get advise from others hopefully and eventually maybe even help others in a similar position to myself.

     

    I am currently in a debt management plan through Payplan however I have decided to try & tackle the debt myself with the help of this forum.

     

    I sent a credit agreement request about three months ago to Robinson Way who have contact Santander however I still haven't heard anything. I haven't stopped my payments to them although I believe I could, I just don't want to rock the boat at this stage.

     

    I also sent a DSAR request to Santander myself and they have written back advising that they don't hold anything for me.

     

    This prompted me to write a letter today to both Robinson Way & Santander requesting that the write off my debt.

     

    I will post up the response here.

     

    A list of my current debts. Credit agreement requests & DSARs are on their way to them all:

     

    apex - sold by Lloyds - 7622.32 @ 32/mth

    Barclaysicon - sold by Eggicon- 1188 @ 5.12/mth

    HBOSicon - cahoot - 8903 @ 38.33/mth

    london scottish - sold by intelligent finance - 6864 @ 29.55/mth

    nco - Amex - 1156 @ 4.98/mth

    pra/activ kapital - Lloyds - 1307 @ 5.63/mth

    wescot - sold by Lloyds - 2428 @ 10.45/mth

     

    total: 29000 @ 126/mth

     

    As always, any advise would be greatly appreciated.

  6. I am in similar position so it would be good to hear how you get on with the full & final offers.

     

    My CCA & DSAR requests are away. I plan to try & claim back any unreasonable charges & any PPI however I am sure I didn't have this. I am then going to make settlement offers, I just don't know how to word the letters & exactly how much to offer yet.

     

    I have a thread on here as well that I plan to update which will hopefully assist others in future.

  7. apex - sold by Lloyds - 7622.32 @ 32/mth - CREDIT CARD

    Barclaysicon - sold by Eggicon- 1188 @ 5.12/mth - CREDIT CARD

    HBOSicon - cahoot - 8903 @ 38.33/mth - CREDIT CARD

    london scottish - sold by intelligent finance - 6864 @ 29.55/mth - UNSECURED LOAN

    nco - Amexicon - 1156 @ 4.98/mth - CREDIT CARD

    pra/activ kapital - Lloyds - 1307 @ 5.63/mth - OVERDRAFT

    wescot - sold by Lloyds - 2428 @ 10.45/mth - UNSECURED LOAN

     

    I am just reading about reclaiming charges on the credit cards just now. Is there anything I can do with the loans?

  8. I am starting to speak with some of my creditors, getting full & final figures & copies of agreements etc.

     

    Most state that they will mark my file as repaid/partially repaid however can they do this if the debt isn't showing on there? I wouldn't like it to re-appear.

     

    Most are coming back with figures of around 75% of the total which I expected. Does anyone have any tips? I was going to eventually offer 25% and go from there depending on whether I get a credit agreement back from them.

     

    thanks

  9. Hi

     

    I was looking for some advice please. I have read through the forum to see if anyone had any personal experience of the below companies but there is very little.

     

    I have requested copies of my credit agreements and full & final settlement figures today. I have also asked the companies to confirm if the agreements are still enforceable as all were taken out around 2002/2003 time.

     

    My existing debts are:

     

    apex - sold by Lloyds - 7622.32 @ 32/mth

    barclays - sold by egg- 1188 @ 5.12/mth

    hbos - cahoot - 8903 @ 38.33/mth

    london scottish - sold by intelligent finance - 6864 @ 29.55/mth

    nco - amex - 1156 @ 4.98/mth

    pra/activ kapital - Lloyds - 1307 @ 5.63/mth

    wescot - sold by Lloyds - 2428 @ 10.45/mth

     

    total: 29000 @ 126/mth

     

    I have been on a debt management plan through Payplan for the past nine years however a family member has recently offered an interest free loan if it helps me repay these debts. (I suffer from a couple of health issues and these debts don't help, which has prompted the offer)

     

    Does anyone have any advice that could help me with full & final offers with these companies or does anyone know anything about agreements being unenforceable if they are pre 2007? Is this worth pursuing at all?

     

    thanks
