  2. Hi All I have now received 3 letters in the last two weeks for a small 'debt' by Lowell on behalf of EDF. This supposed debt (£71.15) on the letter for 'outstanding balance' states a date range between '22.5.13 to 4.6.15 ( this was the entire term of my account with EDF I believe.) These letters arrived out of the blue. The account for utilities at EDF which ended at April '15 I think judging by old emails I have. Ive had no letters or other communications from EDF in the last 5 years that Im aware of about this alleged debt. Surely this must be some kind of fishing trip?
  3. Hello, Any advice would be greatly appreciated on this matter. As a younger man I got myself into a myriad of debt issues. This resulted in a debt management plan via Payplan being instructed when things got out of hand. This ran for about 5 years but ended in 2013 when I got severely ill and let all my finances collapse. I'm now better and trying to rebuild things but it seems every now and then I get a chancer trying to chase an old debt that may not have been fully paid by the time debt management plan fell apart. One company also has managed to get a charge on my house alre

  6. My tale is a familiar one for many BT customers so I will not go into too much detail other than to say that my home experienced a significant telephone line fault in Dec’13. It took several weeks (and so/too many phone calls; repeating the issue time and time again) for BT to acknowledge that I had waited too long and that an attempted repair, the following month (some 3-4 weeks later), would be a good idea. After a very frustrating telephone trail, I eventually was contacted by an escalations team who appeared helpful at first; arranging for engineer’s to visit.

  8. Hi all, I am looking for some advice regarding two loans that my mother seems to have been paying forever. Unfortunately she does not have any paperwork regarding these loans, from the TSB. I directed her some time ago about PPI, she followed the cliaims process but was basically told that it doest apply to her. When she was discussing this on the phone with,I presume, someone at her bank they informed her that her loans were taken out in 2001 and 2004 respectively. Now, my mother only ever took a loan out for £3000, possibly £4000 MAX . She has been making monthly payments of £54 on one loan

  10. Hi all, new here, I've had a look around and con't seem to find the answer to this one so was wondering if someone could help me.

Once this final account has 'aged off' Where do I stand when it come to applying for credit ?

  12. Hi, I'm looking for some advice for my Dad please, about this new poor man's tax. He lives in a 3rd floor, 2 bed flat and received the Bedroom tax letter. As he is 60 years old would he be exempt from this? (Sorry if that seems a silly question, I've no idea about benefits) He had a stroke last year and because of this had to stop his job (carpenter) so has since then been receiving DLA and help with his rent. He has been on the housing list since the stroke, as he has trouble climbing 4 flights of stairs to his home, so would gladly move. Like many people, he is already strugglin
