  1. Hello everyone.. I have a friend who has had some debt they went to a company called spectrum, who took the dent on.. my friend pays spectrum £80 per month to pay the agencies that they owe the money to.. well to cut a long story story short.. spectrum hasnt payed the creditors, dispite the money going from my bank. now my friend is being taking to court and threatened with baliffs... how does my friend stand does anyone know ? the house isnt even theirs. and they only have a car in their name.. which is needed as he is disabled ( well going blind ) and needs his car for his wife

  6. sorry for this.. i have sent my first letter, (access request letter ) at long last i have had a reply and the A&L have sent me all my bank statements for the last 6 years... i know i have to do a spreed sheet, calculating all the charges, NOT THE INTEREST at this point. but which spreed sheet do i use, and which is the second letter i send with the spreed sheet. i found the preliminary approach letter ( is this the second letter to send giving them 14 days to reply. ? ) folloed by the letter before action.. sorry for this but i am really lost at the moment. and looking at

  10. Hiya Everyone sent out first letter to A&L on the 3rd January 2007. still no reply from the A&L. the cheque hasnt been cashed either. not to sure what to do now ?. whether to send a reminder, and that their dead line day is 13th February 2007 . saw local M.P on the I.T.N News this evening. ( Mr Matthew Taylor ) He told the houses of commons that the bank charges were wrong.illegal, and putting poeple into deeper debt. how right he was..lets just hope they listen to him, and not let his words go to a deft wall. so i might say blow it and send a reminder, cant
  11. hello all. i have just sent my first letter to the A&L 2 days ago. but i did a silly thing and didnt send it recored delivery, should i send another to be safe.. my bank charges have left me with no money at all.and iam on benifits. because i am disabled. i have now got to the point that some of my direct debit companies are threatening me with baliffs.. wow what a nice bank the A&L are. my bank charges (OVER CHARGES) must be up in the £4-5K easy. 2 months ago i sent a letter to the bank ombusmen, what a waste of time that was. he/she was no help what so ever. all i can s

  13. Hello to all. well my problem is much the same as every one else. my bank took around £500 this month alone in charges, this has been happening to me for the last year,and longer.. because i am on benifits as i am disabled. they left me with no money to pay my direct debts, now i am being threaten by baliffs. one example was a direct debt refused for £2.99 but the A&L charged me £34.00 for this. if they didnt take my money in charges, then the money and more left over would be thir to pay my bills each month. i feel like i am giving my benifits to the banks as i dont see a penny of
