About Me


  1. Firstly I have been reading through your site and must congratulate you on a wonderful service and website. If only I had put my thinking cap on earlier and paid more attention! This is a big one and I have followed your advice so far... here go's.... I had loads of debt in 2006 when my company went into a CVA, I have kept a lot of the information and letter replies including an experian report dated may 09. I had numerous debts up to about 100k, with a remortgage I paid around half and tried and have succeeded in removing another 25k to date. Lowell then wrote to me saying
  2. hi Hi, I'd would like some advice on saving my home from repossession (sales) Lovell portfolio declared me bankrupt July 2011 for £3000 credit card debt they purchased, I offered to pay at £200 per month which they turned down, I've been paying of my debts at this amount successfully for 3 years. I only own a small amount on my mortgage, which is not in arrears, all my debts together amounted to £12,000. I entered into a payment agreement with the appointed Trustee, so far paid £2,100. Really suprised to recieved a court date for possession and sale of my home! The amount o
  3. Hi, Firstly if I am posting this in the wrong section, I do apologise. Please advise where it should go if this is wrong. My question is that Hamptons are chasing me for a debt which I believe is owed to Vanquis bank. I am not currently in a position to settle this. My problem is that this morning my 16yr old son received a text on HIS phone looking for me. Now he is on a pay as you go sim, in his name and it absolutely nothing to do with me. What I want to know is where they would/could have got his number from and are they actually even allowed to contact his number with him being
  4. We have started receiving letters from Lowells re a Cap one account. In March 2010 it was being handled by another DCA and we requested a CCA from Cap one. They didn't provide one, but provided terms and condition and a reconstituted copy of the agreement. I then sent an account in dispute letter and they replied sending the same reconstituted agreement. It was shortly taken back by Capital one and nothing was heard from since, until Lowells and hamptons started chasing, as I believe they have done to others lately. I haven't been around for a while, does the
  5. My partner received a letter asking for over £350 - she wrote back on 31st May 2014 with an offer, to which they never replied. Shall we ignore this until they reply? I've prepared a standard letter requesting a true copy of the credit agreement, will send that tomorrow with £1 and sending it recorded to ensure it's signed for. In the meantime, should she just wait?
  6. Sorry if this in the wrong section. Hubby has o/s debt which has been passed from cabot to hamptons. I am pretty sure it is over 6 yrs old but I will have to get the paperwork out at the weekend. They constantly text his mobile but he hasn't spoken to them. 3 weeks ago he took over a business (inc phone number). The telephone company is Titan telecom (i know there are **** but there is 2 yrs left on the contract!). The first odd thing was a couple of days after he took over - he had about 10 phone calls on his mobile from utility companies trying to get his business. He pays the la
  7. Hello again all, After your advice once again, after the help you have gave us has resulted in 4 DCAs backing down, but now we have come across one we aren't sure of. My partner has received a letter today from Red Debt Collection with the usual threats of courts and bailiff action etc, stating that she owes £440 to Three Mobile. We did in fact set up a standing order to Lowell over a £210 Three Mobile account, as the debt wasn't statute barred as she had been paying Lowell £11 a month a few years ago - so a few weeks ago we set up a £40 a month standing order to get it pa
  8. Hi, My son has had a number of threatening letters regarding a '3 ' phone contract, they(lowells) reckon he owes £446, he said the debt was originally for £90, they have obviously sold it on to 'Lowells'. He has just had a letter saying they will half the bill if he pays it all at once, but I think they will only take it in instalments for the full balance! He is worried it will affect him getting a mortgage, he says 3 did not replace the phone he states was damaged. Any advice? Should he offer to pay the reduced amount in instalments? Cheers
  9. I received a royal mail "while you were out" card for a special delivery letter. I can't pick the letter up until next week now. I have no idea who could be sending me a letter, I've not bought anything online recently and it wont be friends or family either. However, I do have a couple of old accounts that are going to be come Statute barred in a few months and lately I have been receiving the usual cycle of garbage from Lowel/Hamptons and Red (threats, discount letters, etc). I have ignored this as they did not reply to my CCA in 2010! I'm now a bit stressed wondering i
  10. Hi all, hope someone can provide advice/help. Been receiving letters from Lowell and now passed across the desk to Hamptons Legal. It's for a Lloyds TSB credit card from 2010, balance of just under £2000. Previous letters have said, pay up, we may commence legal proceedings/CCJ etc etc. New letter is saying we'd like to make one final offer to resolve the matter: Pay 50% of the balance to settle the account Pay £40 per month Call us to agree a monthly plan. If you don't agree a payment plan, we will have no alternative but to commence with legal action against you.
  11. Hi dnt know if posted this in the right place. I have been receiving letters from lowell for a debt I owe to litlewoods to the sum of £1170.32p this has been going on for about 15 months. I have now received a letter from hamptons legal stating they are the litigation department for lowell and they have been instructed to assess the account for litigation. They claim to have a copy of my credit file. It also states that when they have assessed it they will be in a position to commence with either litigation or instruct a home visit agent to discuss repayment. li

  13. I received a letter from Hamptons - is this standard threat-o-gram stuff or something more serious? The text of the letter is: I have been ignoring all letters from Lowells about this debt for nearly 3 years. Should I ignore this, too? Thanks, Sue
  14. Hi, just wondering if anyone could help. I was abit reckless in my late teens/early twenties, I'll spare you the details. I ran up quite a few debts in this time through nativity and lack of financial education. having settled most debts and with my one and only default (from a c.c) being six years old in two weeks, I have a loan from hbos of around £1200 outstanding, took out in 2003. I've checked equlifax, experian, noddle and annualcreditreport all have no sign of this debt. However I have red/Lowell/hamptons chasing me for this, threatening ccj.
  15. I have today received a letter from Bryan Carter Solicitors informing me that they WILL issue court proceedings on the 22nd of Feb if I do not pay them £1100. Their clients or reference appear to be Lowell finance and I believe the original debt was from Capital one credit card. I believe the original debt may date back to mid 2007, but having moved house and misplaced most of my paperwork I only have this letter along with a letter from capital one dated feb 2009 informing me they have sold the account to Lowell. I have not had any contact (bar that letter mentioned ab
  16. Received a letter today from Hamptons Legal threatening me with a SD. This is the first I have heard from them. It apparantly relates to an old Co-op credit card. The letter goes on about what action they may take, and finishes with "we would be willing to accept £50.00 a month till the debt is paid" etc etc. This is one that has been passed around a few times, and on each occasion when asked for s.78 request they have not complied and passed it on to someone else. The letter says it is a Lowell account which is puzzling as I have had no communication from Lowell. Should
  17. Hi people I have keep getting letters of this company Hampton's Legal on a debt that i don't believe i owe to Orange as I'm sure i payed but can't prove it, the latest letter states that they will go for a CCJ (not too bothered about) but if they cant get the money owing they said that they will do attachment to earnings. The bill owing is on £71.26. Also they say that they have seen what i earn and see that i can afford to pay it, how the hell have they done this legally? Any advice will be greatly appreciated
  18. Hi There, I had my mobile phone stolen in 2007 and a £792 debt was ran up within 1 day and resulted in a default. (I thought I had simply lost my phone in my university dorm room) when it was in fact left in a taxi. Anyway, the debt was due to expire in 2013, however Lowells have taken over the debt this year and for some unknown reason the default has been transferred to them, and it says that I defaulted in 02/2012. Which of course is false nothing happened in 02/08/12. I presume that this debt will now be on record for a further six years from 02/08/2012... How have they do

  20. Hi folks, I have spent some time today trying to understanding Statutory demands, having aparently recieved one hand deliverd last week. I just wonderd if there was a final consensus on how these things from hamptons should be handled, ie ignored, cca'd, apply to set aside etc. Below I will give brief details on this situation and would welcome any comments. cheers So some day last week I came home and found a brown envelope had been posted through, no post mark and only my name on it written in blue biro. Nothing else apart from the words "Private and confidential in" red. Inside
  21. Hi I have been an avid reader of this site for many years now and have always found the advice I needed to deal with my many ups and downs over the last few years. I always do my best to find out the information I need trying not to block up the site with my issues when there are many many people that need more help than I do but I'm afraid today I could really do with some advice please! I have been handed a letter (not in an envelope) by a stranger knocking at my door today. It is a Statutory Demand from Hamptons Legal (Lowell Portfolio). I did not need to sign for it and
  22. Hi Everyone, I am new to this site and need some advice.... I have been receiving letters from Red relating to a 3mobile debt that I'm pretty sure is statute barred. I have checked both Experian and Equifax and there is no default recorded on either. Today I received a letter from Hamptons threatening court action. What should I do? I have attached a copy of the letter. Thanks Ani
