  1. Hi https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?491828-Southern-Water-UKsearchLTD-Shulmans-court-claim-urgent-help-needed-(past-33-days) We are in exactly the same situation having just received a Letter Before Action Letter from Shulmans/UK Search/ Southern Water for alleged bills between 2007 and 2015. This letter is addressed to my partner and his ex who split in 2015. They claim £3343 is owed but this is the first we know about it. Having read through this thread, I am a little confused as the info appears contradictory.... Are we sending the CAG p
  2. Hi Guys Just joined the forum as had been looking for some advice regarding this issue. My partner is being pursued for a debt in Dubai in 2007. Until last week she had no contact with the bank since 2009, this being the year she left Dubai. We have just received a statutory demand from the infamous CWD which on advice we are going to set aside and dispute the debt they are saying is owed (over 180,000 pounds) from a c card debt of 18k. From what ive read many of you are in the same boat and we would just like a bit of advice whilst we share our experience to hopefully h
  3. My girlfriend and I went along to a trial session at a local fitness centre we had been told about. After the session, we sat down in the café and received a free (freshly ground) coffee as we discussed joining permanently with the trainer. The conversation was brief, 5 mins max. It involved an iPad on which she showed us the booking app they use and details of the different memberships. We opted for the couples membership at £88.20 per month (endorphin levels were sky high so this sounded like a great deal at the time) plus we get some free gear and a club-branded item of cloth
  4. Hi Guys, I have received a few letters from Clarity which started with the usual we are trying to contact someone, which I ignored (why help them?) then came the "you owe us loads of money" letter, which I also ignored because I see why I should ring them or do anything initially. Then came the "we will send round the FieldCall people to discuss the fact that you owe us loads of money" letter. I was not too purturbed because a) I had been chased almost a year ago for almost the exact same amount by Lowell, who finally admitted they were wrong and appologised for writing to me (I had
  5. Hi all, Apologies if this post is in the wrong forum, had a look and wasn't sure where to put it. Back in 2015 I obtained a referral to a specialist consultant for a health issue via my health insurer Pru/Vitality. I was issued with a claim number, claim was allowed, saw the consultant and that was that. I had previously seen him under the same process. In 2016 I started to get letters from the consultant's office demanding payment for my 2015 visit. I explained that I had a valid claim via my insurer and told them to take it up with them. A few months later, same thing.
  6. Hello all, First of all a slight intro, I have never been to Dubai in my entire life but my brother did live over there for a year a few years ago. I was at work in the UK earlier and received a call on my company (landline) phone, I was advised that it was a debt collection agency called Tahseel calling about my brother's apparent credit card debt. Initially I was baffled at how they managed to get hold of my company phone number but i'm sure my details are readily available online somewhere and they have obviously linked me to my brother in some way. They were asking for
  7. Hi there CAG Community! So relieved there is hope out there - CAG!! In a nutshell, I have lived in Abu Dhabi, UAE, for many, many years.. I had a credit card and a loan, of those in the know, is a must if you are in need of renting any property as x2 payments up-front are needed..Anyways, long story short, I have always paid my loans/CC's on time, every time. In Dec 2017, I was unfairly dismissed, (part of the emiritization restructuring) and was given 3-hours notice to leave. Contravened Labor Law, thus was unlawful (which didn't make a difference) desperately tried to fig
  8. Hi all, Have I made a mistake? I had an unenforceable credit card debt from 2010 has been passed through the following companies: Alliance & Leicester/ MBNA/AIC/Aegis/Wescot - Bank of America /Arrow Global/ Wescot/ Scotcall/ Vanquis Bank. In 2011 Letter from Arrow Global said Scotcall is no longer managing your account. It will now be managed by Vanquis Bank on behalf of Arrow, who will be in touch to let you know contact details and offer you the "Avant Programme". Never heard any more and 6 years later was offered a small credit card which I thought would help m
  9. Hi All... First off apologies if I am asking something that has been answered elsewhere... Truth is I'm in a massive hole and trying to find anyway out (not just with welcome lol) Long story short... Took at a 3rd charge loan with welcome about 12 years ago...it was a struggle from the off... About 3 years in welcome offered us the chance to resign to extend the length of the loan and reduce the payments which we did... Split up with the wife who remained in the home about 6 years ago. For the past 5 years no payment have been made to welcome. Current balance is about £29k. My initi
  10. Hi guys, sorry, the first half of this post has disappeared. My second question is basically, is it worth sending Vanquis an SAR because they are likely to have made punitive charges and penalties when my card went into default. This is with a view to claiming them back. Thanks, Mikey_L
  11. Hello everyone, I am new to this group. I received a letter from Opos (a DCA) back in November 2016, saying I owe money to an energy company for an unpaid energy bill. I replied saying that I did not know their client and the debt was not mine. I asked them to send me copies of the unpaid bill(s). I received a new letter from Opos last month, containing a settlement offer. Again, I replied stating that I did not know their client, nor had I ever received any services from them, and the debt was not mine. I used a template similar to the one shown under "You
  12. Hello I am looking for some advice but couldn't work out how to create a new post? I joined a gymtec gym in May 2013 on a 12 month contract but became unwell late 2013, early 2014 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I wrote to my gym cancelling my membership due to developing a disability and being unable to use the gym due to severe muscle pain, limited mobility and fatigue. I included a copy of my consultants letter confirming diagnosis and also informed the gym I was struggling financially due to divorce proceedings and now supporting myself and my step daughter on only my income.
  13. Hi, I have just been issued with a claimform from Robinson Way Ltd, I am considering fighting the debt for two reasons I would like any advise on whether I have a leg to stand on with any of my reasons and if anyone would recommend or recommend against doing so. 1. The debt of £1573.05 is originally from an approximate £50.00 unauthorised overdraft from Lloyds bank, the first reason I have for fighting the debt is that it is mostly made up of overdraft charges that since receiving them where found to be illegal (If you remember back in 2011 ish everyone was claiming their ov
  14. I had 2 unpaid old loans with the speedcredit "group" of loan companies which of course went under a few years ago, I didn't hear anything until a few months ago from a company called "United Kash" who said they owned both the loans but have now passed one of the loans onto another company called "Capital Resolve." I have heard very little from Capital Resolve but United Kash have been sending letters / emails & texts (probably phone calls too but I don''t answer unknown numbers.) I have been ignoring all of these forms of harassment, now last week they sent me a text ONLY saying they were
  15. Hi, Can anyone help me out.. a month ago 1st Credit sent me a CCA (finally) for a debt which is now statue barred about two years ago. Now they are starting to chase me again for the debt. Any advice on how I should proceed? Many thanks in advance, M
  16. Hi, We have a credit card debt with MBNA taken out in 2008 which defaulted in 2013. It is showing on CRA as 'satisfied' with MBNA, but then appeared as Aktiv Captial, who chased through 2013 - 2015. The debt is now with PRS Group and we have had a letter asking for payment or Court Action will ensue. If the debt is showing 'satisfied' can PRS still push for payment, or is this 'satisfied' because the debt has been bought? We wrote to Aktive in 2013 asking for CCA, they sent us photocopied version, scribbled numbers over and no sig. Do we just igno
  17. I returned from Dubai in early March having left behind 30 000 AED debt on an FB credit card. 12/07/16 I received a letter from CWD advising me:- "We have been instructed by our client to engage with you and to make arrangements for the repayment of your credit card debt to our client." The debt is apparently now 47 000 AED. I have to respond before 2nd August otherwise "a fixed legal charge of £1500 will be added to your account" Also "Once proceedings are commenced legal costs are charged on a time spent basis. I left Dubai penniless and have overdrafts and credit
  18. Hi - following our split, my ex stopped paying the mortgage and eventually handed the keys back to the bank. It was subsequently sold at a loss it seems (I can see on Zoopla that it sold for around £35k less than the mortgage value, in Oct '10). A letter from a debt collector found it's way to me a while back (via an old address) and it seems Welcome Finance are chasing c.£30k from me for a secured loan we took out with Freedom finance years ago. We paid the debt off in full - I remember feeling elated when we'd paid our final instalment! So how can they be chas
  19. . I have a debt of €15k from a credit card from a French bank. I retired and came home to the UK intending to service the debt. Unfortunately, there was a marital break up and I can't pay more than about €50 per month. I have been contacted by email by a Hussier to contact ASAP. Should I reply and try to negotiate a low payment or ignore the mail - they don't have my address as yet.
  20. Hello, It is the first time I use this forum, and I really need your advice. I am going to try to make it short, but it is not going to be easy... My husband and I are French and lived in England for six years (July 1996 to August 2002). We left UK at the beginning of August 2002 to move back to France because of unplanned family reasons, but with outstanding unsecured debts in the UK. Before moving, we wrote to our creditors in the UK to let them know we were moving to France, our moving date and our temporary address in France where they could contact us. Unfortunately, in 20
  21. I wanted to ask if anyone could give me some advise on unpaid Spanish Community charge debts. We handed in our keys back to the bank in Spain 2007 and we understand the bank did not repossess the property until 2009. We purchased the property in 2005 and paid some of the community fees but the amount they are saying is well over what they are saying. The Uk debt collector contacted me last year and I disputed the amount but I have received another letter today saying we are still liable as the property was not repossessed until 2009 we are still liable for the u
  22. I've had a letter over the weekend from CDI- we left ireland during the financial crisis due to no work, . ..I had a small unsecured loan with boi -haven't paid anything off the loan since June 2011, it's about €2500 - they've sent me a letter via an international DCA, who are based in Kent...

  23. The following is an extract of an article that appeared on SCOOP yesterday: Full story here: http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/Hull-mother-chased-bailiffs-carving-knife-walks/story-28348975-detail/story.html#ixzz3uVapzLee
  24. Just had a very worrying phone call started with me querying the fact that they where still under the impression I was self employed (a job I did for 18 months) got put through to tax credits department who said that we still owed £12000 and this sum was now in the hands of a debt collection agency. And that their last letter to us was March this year which is an absolute lie. they refuse to send copies of any correspondence. Not had any correspondence on this issue for years. This debt goes back to when tax credit's first came out and was based on estimates from my local tax
  25. Hi - am in more than a slight panic!! (I have posted this problem elsewhere then remembered how helpful this forum was in the past.) A week ago I received 5 years worth of Business Rates demands - 2002/3, 2003/4, 2004/5, 2005/6 & 2006/7. There was no letter just the outstanding amounts. I had had during that time, a running battle with the Council about these rates due to my feeling the amount was unfair due to part of the property being unused, I didn't pay the landlord rent for it and I didn't receive any income for it (it was also pretty der
