  2. Hi all, so this is an interesting one, I joined a gym.. locally.. online.. they had a separate finance firm ‘Debit Finance Collections’’, and it’s a local trust gym.. to cut a long story short, just after joining I went on a course at work and was out of the area for a while and pretty busy, when I got back I realised I just wouldn’t have time to use the gym and to be honest there’s one closer to my work which is better placed.. I called up DFC (bearing in mind I haven’t set foot in the gym, picked up my card, had a letter.. nothing..) and that was when I was told, as I
  3. Hello all, apologies if this is repeating other posters, but just needed some reassurance or additional advice: I was sc@mmed via an Ebay/Paypal seller. I sold a bike to a buyer, the payment was requested as bank transfer, however the buyer suggested using PayPal and all I needed to provide was my email for him/her to deposit the money to my PayPal account. The money was deposited, the bike collected (I didn't ask for a collection receipt as it wasn't a courier I had arranged). I removed the money from my PayPal account, and thought everything was good. Two days later, P
  4. Hi im new to the forum I have recently stopped paying my loan, I recall the loan company sending me out my loan agreement and making me hand sign it in late 2016. If I was to do a CCA will they need to show the signed agreement?
  5. Hello everyone, Yesterday I received a Penalty charge note for a parking offence in Budapest in month of August 2016. It is about 6 month ago. The company which is representing the charge is called Euro Parking Collection Plc or epcplc.com I do remember visiting Budapest and staying for few days but I did always paid for my parking but unfortunately I do not have the parking pay and display proof after 6 months of time. They also send me a link for viewing pictures of my caddy parked in the street and had a penalty charge note placed under my wiper which I never found it. My qu
  6. Ok heres the deal. I signed up for a 3 month virgin active membership back around july, after one months use I wanted to cancel, they wouldnt agree and the idiot manager would not even agree to simply talk with me. I didn't use the gym in the last two months but they don't care and the contract doesn't of course. Arc debt collection has been dealing with me, I owed around £170 or something in total ive already paid £90 worth, maybe that was the wrong decision but I do not want to pay them the remainder. I've set loads of dates to pay and many I have not pai
  7. 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
  8. Hello newbie here, My Husband & I have been dealing with a Debt Collection Agency SMD Credit Solutions Ltd since April to collect a Debt owed to our Company since November last year. A little background: We were owed £38k and the debt was in dispute by the company who owed us. This was construction industry dispute where we worked for contractor (2) who was working for main contractor (1). Main Contractor (1) refused to pay contractor (2) citing poor workmanship therefore contractor refused to pay us. So it was quite in depth but it was being dragged out and being a s

  10. Not sure if this is the correct board to put this, sorry if not. I had a tenancy with a large Housing Association which ended 2 years ago and I left owing over £1K of arrears. The last 2 years I haven't heard anything from them (they knew my contact details so not sure why) and as such I just buried my head in the sand until now. They have passed my arrears to a bailiff company called Regional Collection Services based in Sunderland, who have added £390+VAT in costs to the arrears. I've contacted the Housing Association by email asking to set up a payment plan directly wit
  11. Hi, I moved into a new property on 31st March and despite trying many times to set up the electricity account in my name Bristol Energy just send bills rather than actually setting up payments! Yesterday I arrived home to a letter from Grosvenor headed: INTENT TO APPLY FOR WARRANT They are saying they will come with Police and Locksmiiths if I don't resolve this. I don't want a payment meter I just want a regular DD and a way to set up a payment plan. I suffer severe anxiety and now Im scared to go home and find baliffs and locksmiths entering my home.
  12. My stepson left the house seven years ago. He had numerous debts. Since then I have had a long battle with various debt collection companies etc. I am sure you know what I mean constant telephone calls, letters etc. i actually won an out of court settlement with one company and have stopped all the rest sending letters or ringing. Today I got knock on the door. A man was there and stated he was from"RESOLVE". I asked to see his I.D which was refused. He then asked to speak to...............asking if he lived here. I simply stated it was none of his busines
  13. I was on repayment plan with Uncle Buck paying £20.00/ Month and always on time, anything missed (3 payments already) now I received this email We have reviewed your account and currently our recommendation will be to either instruct an external debt collection agency to collect your outstanding debt or pass your details to an external litigation company who may instigate legal proceedings in the form of a County Court Judgement, Third Party Debt Order, Attachment of Earnings or Bailiff Enforcement. You will receive further communication about the course of action we intend to
  14. Hi All, I'm hoping someone can give me a steer on the correct course of action here. I "own" a leasehold property with an annual service charge of £150 payable annually in advance. I foolishly missed the payment in April this year and received an invoice for the payment due plus a "reminder fee" of £34, which i duly challenged in writing, accepting the original £150 was payable but asking where in my lease it states that the reminder fee is payable. I also requested a breakdown of the £34 fee as I believe it to be disproportionate. I received a response stating that this
  15. Good evening all, First time posting here and I'll try include everything in this message. I would really appreciate anyone's help on this matter. I sold an item on eBay and the buyer claimed back even though I sent proof of postage, it was a signed for service but I do not have their signature but tracking shows the item as being delivered. They didn't accept my case. PayPal didn't care as the initial case was with eBay. My PayPal account was in minus for a sum of £900 for around a month and a half, PayPal wouldn't listen to me just kept forcing me to pay even though I didn't
  16. Hello, Need some help with the above named company. We own our home on a "Freehold" - there is no mortgage on the property. It is in our name and we have no finance against the property. It is a house and stands on its own land detached. We live in an area that has a property management company who is named on the deeds and within the covenants. We moved into the property seven years ago from new build and there has never been a previous owner except of course the developer. Each year a company (various named companies) but the most recent called HML Guthrie has been i
  17. Hello...Had gas/electric supplied by Flow Energy until 6th May 2017 before switching to another company. Final bill issued by Flow Energy 13th June 2017 - advised they would take final d/d 14 days later. Have now received a letter on 2/5/18 from Allied Credit International Ltd from Glasgow stating that the amount is due. (Also, letter dated 23/4/18 but not received until 2/5/18). Have checked bank thoroughly and Flow Energy never took the final direct debit as they said they would at end of June 2017. Also never received any communication at any point from Flow Energy since that e
  18. Hi All, I enquired about a ticket for an event in Amsterdam last year through a Danish company, they sent me an invoice for 445euros and I decided not to go. They phoned me and resent the invoice to which I replied that I would not be attending. They sent me an email stating that if I didn't pay they would be offering the ticket to someone else and I responded saying its fine I am not coming. Then a year later I get a letter from a UK debt collection agency - is it just me or is this as ridiculous as it sounds? I tried to speak to them on the phone but they are ridiculous

  21. Hi guys. First time poster. Came into debt with PayPal. All my own doing. It was £1100 and I've since reduced it to £400. I'm stretched until pay day next month and appear short of options. Any advice? As they said debt collection agency may get involved, which probably worries me more than it should. Just hate having things like this unresolved. Thanks.
  22. Hi all, Had a persistent problem with multiple debt agencies over the last 4 years in particular constantly calling my mobile phone. Within a week of getting the number, I was getting debt collection agencies calling asking for a woman (obviously the numbers previous owner) as she owed just over a couple of hundred quid. I call them, tell them that they have the wrong number, they usually ignore the first time, 2nd or 3rd call usually stops the phone calls. UNTIL! The problem is, these blasted debt agencies seem to sell the debt, and I get a new debt collection a
  23. The background: My son, in his first years insurance, had an accident (his fault) in May this year. His car was a write off and he was paid out. The broker (My Policy) called him (before the actual payout) and told him that he needed to get a new car within 21 days or the policy will be cancelled. I have checked this with the actual insurers T&C's - no mention of 21 days but does say it will be cancelled if not transferred to another vehicle. He said that was not in a position to get a new vehicle so they advised to cancel the policy. Fast forward to yester

  25. Dear Caggers, need some advice on this. We took unsecured loan back in 2010 for £9000 with Black Horse. Everything was fine until we run into financial dificulties in October 2012. Wrote to black horse asking for reduced payment plan and that was agreed for 6 months. The last payment we made was in January 2013, after which we contacted blackhorse again to lower reduced payments as we could not cope. They never responded to us. Two weeks ago we received letter from Ascent collections stating they acting on behalf of Blackhorse to collect the debt, followed
