  2. There was a story in the financial section of today's Daily Mail about a chap who lived in south London and always had done being chased by Robbers Way for a debt that beloned to someone in Essex. it transpired that Experian does a people matching service and came up with the poor fellow's name and DoB being similar to the defaulter so they sold Robbers his details and they then put a default on his credit files and changed the original address to match the new erroneous data. Now I know that this crookedness and deception was down to Robbers Way but they wouldnt have ever had the o
  3. Hi All, I'm hoping someone here can assist me with MKDP/Compello/Raven etc. For some time (years) I have been receiving letters from the above to my mothers house about an outstanding debt to Welcome Finance, I was duely ignoring them as I was not aware of any debt. Some time ago I re-registered on the electoral role after getting married and moving to a new house with my now wife, it would seem this meant the "group" knew to send letters there instead. I finally decided enough was enough when the "group" started calling the house, and so wrote them the attached l
  4. Hi all I'm two months in arrears with a company based near Doncaster as they haven't completed the job they were supposed to do almost 12 months ago. To cut a long story short, I had a call a few days ago to discuss this from a Mr Morley supposedly of 'Doncaster Debt Collectors'. Called from a mobile number. Has anyone heard of this company or had any dealings with them? I have googled it and there are no results. I suspect he is from the company that I am having problems with rather than a debt collector. I explained the problem and he agreed to remov
  5. Hello Caggers, Long time member, first time poster it would seem! Anyhow, the story so far. A long time ago in a suburb of Croydon, far far away, I had a credit card with MBNA. They didn't put a hold on it when I fell into difficulty and added a further 4 or £500 to my outstanding balance, made possible by the extension they gave me to my credit limit. How nice of them! They subsequently offered me a 2nd credit card and said I could move the balance over at 0% for 6 months. Thinking they were genuine, I accepted the new card. Despite having asked beforehand the new card
  6. So, today I had a puncture on the motorway, managed to get the spare on and drove straight to Kwik Fit at Manor Royal in Crawley, which is just a few yards from my work.. Several things happened that are obviously dubious, and repeated thousands of times all over the web where Kwik Fit is concerned. 1. The sales guy tried to quote for new tyres even before he inspected the flat one. 2. When he did look, he pointed out hairline cracks that were found to be superficial by the Mercedes garage. 3. He said both back tyres needed replacing 4. He then checked the front tyres, of whic
  7. Hello Lowell have been pursuing me for old catalogue debt from Catalogue firm empire stores for some time, i had a letter back months ago saying they could not obtain an agreement because it was such a long time ago, but to my amazement i received a photo copy of a customer shopping card with my name and old address fom the 90's on it no signature or date and are demanding payment forthwith. By the way the handwriting is not mine. Can someone tell me if this constitutes an official agreement,a ny advice would be gratefully received thankyou
  8. Written by Martin Cutts, of the Plain Language Commission, who was recently featured on BBC Watchdog when he won a court case against Excel, with additional research by Nev Metson: Parking firms whose income depends on unclear signs and payment demands are being supported by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) through a little-known agreement with the British Parking Association (BPA). It’s led to about four million drivers being pursued for charges that many of them mistakenly think are real parking fines. In the current year alone, BPA-member firms are chasing drivers
