My husband and I had quite large debts with mbna,
we choose (stupidly) to borrow on 0% credit cards instead of borrowing on a loan with a fixed rate and an end date. (we all live and learn).
We ran into difficulties reducing the balance because the cards went form charging 0% - 29.9%, paying £700.00 per month
and reducing balance by about £30.00 per month,
you probably don't need me to tell you that we could not keep this up,
we wrote to mbna who were quite helpful and put the accounts on 0% and reduced payments,
we were paying £460.00 per month and made great strides in reducing the debt.
Then out of the blue, we got a letter saying that the debt was being transfered.
This is where the real troubles started.
(by the way we have experienced cards being transfered before and nothing has changed with regards to paying).
People have been ringing us night and day for huge amounts of money.
Plus sending the odd letter.
Now my husband has received a claim form for an CCJ.
I have filled out the request for more time on moneyclaim site.
I have been getting advise from payplan who are really saying we need an IVA.
This is not what we want.
Surely there is another way.
We are in our late 40's and have always paid back what we have borrowed plus interest.
Really don't know where to go with this?
We have all the paperwork etc.
hope someone can help or point us in the right direction?
Many thanks for your time
