About Me


  1. Hi, I had a default placed on my credit file from Scottish Power back in 2011 that I am attempting to contest as I never remembered receiving a notice of. The balance was paid a month after it was applied. However, clearly, removing it entirely would be most beneficial. Using the web as a resource, I recently sent a letter which included: After recently obtaining a copy of my credit file from Experian I was concerned to note that your company has placed a "Default" notice against my name. Further to this I have no recollection of ever receiving such a notice, and I therefor

  7. Hi everybody, This is my first post, so please excuse me, if I posted it into the wrong location And please move it to the correct one. I searched the forum, but did not find something related. I have a HP agreement with AFL (Advantage Finance Ltd), where i was unable to make the last payment (due 28th October 2012). The HP agreement is currently beginning the last of 4 years. So 3/4th of the agreement is paid off. AFL sent me a notice that I have missed the payment, a few days (less than a week) later, which gave me 48 hours to contact them and pay in full.
  8. Hey everyone, first of all, apologies if i am reapeating what has already been posted on here, but im new and its hard to pick out the relevant imformation sometimes, so im posting from my point of view in hopes it will be clearer for me!

  10. Dear All, I have come across this site while doing some research for a court case takes place on the 10/10/12. Probably a bit late in the day but I was looking for some help, advice and support as I am representing myself. I purchased a Siemens fridge/freezer in Sept 2008 which went faulty in May 2011 just outside it 2 warrenty. They inspected the appliance and found a fan needed replacing and that they had none in stock and had to be order it from Germany. There would be a week before they could come back to repair it. To cut a long story short, I was being charged a call out fee pl
  11. I had a credit card with Capital One, got into difficulties, debt passed to Lowells, I then got a Debt Management to look after this debt. Debt management went bust. Now I have Robinson Way after me on behalf on Lowells and Capital One. Looked at what little paper work I had and it looked like it might have been six years since last payment, so I wrote to Robinson Way saying statue barred. this is the contents of their letter. (We do not accept the statue barred on this account. and if you were to demonstrate that this debt is time barred the debt st
  12. Myself and my partner are both unemployed; we have a two year old child. I have been the main claimant for us both because I am the one returning to work whilst he looks after our child. He has no qualifications, I have many (not that it's helped me find work so far, I keep being told I'm over qualified ). We claim JSA and get child tax credits. Anyway, to cut a long story short, my partner has just been signed off as ill by the GP (yesterday). He's actually very ill and will be seeing a neurologist for tests. He's been getting progressively worse over time and he isn't fit to care for ou

  14. Hi everyone, I have been a total pleb and due to various circumstances left it rather late to inform the council that I had a wage rise last year. I know I should have done it immediately later but at the time of the rise I was under incredible pressure with debt worries after separating from my husband who left me in huge financial difficulty together with the fact that i was undergoing various medical tests which at the hospital as I was (an still am) showing symptoms of MS. This ommission came about because I was sorting through this years paperwork and unusually for me have lef

Since buying my home 7 years ago there are a string of defaults etc on my file, unsecured and in the main unsettled, but being paid by arrangements.

  18. Hi I wonder if you can help me out a little. I found a website showing which credit reference agencies are used by bank lenders. Is there any such listing of which CRA's motor insurance companies use? I have different info with all 3 CRA's, one being alot better than the other 2. I would like to find out which insurers use which CRA's before i go ahead and make an application. ALSO - if using comparison sites, if they are giving me multiple quotes from serveral companies, will this mean several credit searches? I have heard that credit ratings COULD be damaged if this

  21. I have a few months to think about this; but could do with some help, please: I am sight impaired. I can read; but with difficulty. (because I see everything move and can't focus properly) Over the years, I've had 2 talking phones, a normal phone and currently have a mobile with a qwerty keypad. With the talking phones, it was difficult to do anything in private - even on the quietest and the fastest voice settings. Because they were T9 keypads, they were difficult to use. The normal phone is fine for just calls and texting. I use this when out running. Last year, I changed
  22. I need assistance with an RLP issue however reading some of the posts it seems that RLP staff seem to read this site and sometimes match up cases. I am therefore reluctant to give many details. I went to CAB to-day but the lady I saw I think just made it worse. She said she knew nothing about the company and immediately phoned them. I did say not to phone them, especially as she had no idea who RLP was and what they did. She got me to go through their 'security' check etc then she started speaking to them, but i had to take the conversation over because I feared she would say the wrong thing a
