About Me


  1. A family member has been sent a letter from Intrum threatening that they will consider issuing a Statutory Demand for Bankruptcy proceedings. The alleged debt is one Intrum bought which is for over £10,000 and is about 10 years old.I also know the debt isn't statutory barred in the near future. A previous DCA was sent a CCA request about 6 months ago, this was not adhered to and they said they were looking into it. Do we now send a CCA request to Intrum and a SAR to the original debitor in readiness for any proceedings? many thanks in advance for any advice
  2. Hi there, I've been chased by CABOT FINANCIAL for several months now for an AQUA CARD debt. After ignoring the mass of phone calls which they also harassed my mother on a phone I used to call AQUA. They also sent a stack of letter with increasing plea's to contact and arrange some settlement. The latest now gives 14 days and threatens getting a solicitor involved leading to a possible CCJ. The original debt is around one year old and I have not paid anything back after the credit card company referred the debt to a collector. My parents are worried about the bailiffs k
  3. Hi All, hopefully you can advise me on a sticky spot I’ve just landed in. I’ve had what I believe to be a perfectly genuine threat-o-gram from a firm of solicitors representing Dessault Systems, makers of the Solidworks CAD package. They’ve correctly identified that I’ve used their software without a licence, but erroneously connected it with my very small business operation for which I own a domain and sell a few bits and pieces online. I manage my website, email etc on the same PC that on which I have Solidworks installed. The two uses are wholly independent.
  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, Great to see some current posts in this thread. I to have had a letter from CLI re a Kuwait debt. This is one of many companies that have tried to connect with me that i have ignored. HOWEVER! They've chased me from moving house, and the latest letter says they are sending a debt collector around in 7 days. Is this just another scare tactic? This has been going on for years now.
  6. I have today received a CCJ claim from the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre, for a credit card that was held with HSBC a few years ago. The last statement I can find for the account is 2009, although the assignment to the DCA was later than that date. Having read through the forums for some advice (which is very handy and I'm very grateful for) I'm going to write to them tomorrow with a CPR31.14 requesting the agreement, default notice and the assignment. From people's past experiences, what are the chances of them providing this information? And do they have t
  7. Hello guys. I need some help. I received this email below from lantern. I have received emails from them over the years about this same debt but I do not know which payday loan debt this is in relation to as it doesn't even say. I'm thinking maybe pounds to pocket. I'm pretty sure this is in relation to paydays loans I took out in 2012. I need some advice because my credit rating is shot and I need to try and get it back into the green. My question is; 1) Should I finally make contact with them and ask them what this debt is in relation to? What should I say?
  8. Hello to all you helpful souls @ CAG, I am hoping for some advice...... A couple of years ago I took out a payday loan with MRLENDER @ £700ish. I found myself in financial difficulty and was not able to repay. I tried to talk to MRLENDER but they were not interested in my circumstances and just insisted on full payment or interest/charges would be added etc. This annoyed the hell out of me!! Therefore I just ignored them. I have now received a letter from MORIARTY LAW (dated 09/12/16), stating; Amount Due: £1312.50 Original Lender: PDL Finance t/a Mr Lender We hav
  9. Hi I need some advice please. Recently I replied to a direct mailshot from a Manchester-based PPI claim company called Consumer Claim Line. I had had a credit card some 20 years or so ago (Capital One card) and I wanted to find out if I had paid PPI on the payments. I returned the paperwork and thought to take advantage of their advertised "no claim no fee" offer to get this investigated. A few weeks later received a reply saying that their preliminary findings were positive and that I should sign the enclosed form authorising them to investigate my claim further.
  10. 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.
  11. I wish I'd found these forums last week when I did a bit of researching online but came across a mass of other things and got confused. out of the blue last week I got a letter from Restons Solicitors (dated September 1st) stating that I owe ME IV Limited £758.05 on an old EE mobile account. They're saying they're instructed by Cabot Financial to seek payment of the outstanding balance and that if I fail to respond by tomorrow (Friday September 15th) then they are "instructed to request that the Court grants a judgment in Default" The letter then goes on to state about possib
  12. Hi all, new to the forums but a familiar problem. It appears to be for a loan in 2013. Apparently its going to court 14 days from the date of the letter (29/12/17 dated) leaving me short of time. There is no mention of it on my credit file at all. I do not want to contact either company without first knowing the best way to do so. I also don't want a CCJ. I tried to upload the letter but the function isnt working for me. Any further information required?
  13. letter received from good old carpquest, those selfless souls (I think an 'r' needs adding to the start of that word for them) who are toiling thanklessly away on behalf of their [heavily connected] client, Erudio [arrows], in relation to a claim for student loans. Following a number of 'you owe this amount, please contact us' style letters, this latest letter seems more decisive regarding potential court proceedings by Erudio. Which is why I need a little help: ====> NOTE: Is it possible to add the original letter text here for only admin to see? ====>
  14. Are foxes a threat to cats? Well Tawnyowl get up at strange times of the day lately. Got up about half two this morning i find it quite an interesting time to write a few tales, peace and quiet. Plus as i am not working in construction anymore do not seem to need as much sleep. Well, that is my answer to anyone who asks what are you doing up this time of day. My cat Fang had been out most of the night so i decided to call him in to give him a piece of Tuna, a treat. Opening my front door i called out Fang where are you with the usual chhh chhh chhh we all call out. He would n
  15. Hi there, I have received a few letters from Restons now regarding a credit card debt from 2012/13, passed to Arrow and now to them. I wont go into the particulars, but as I was unable to meet the balooning minimum payments and issues with work left me stressed worried and stupidly with my head in the sand. Now, finally back on my feet in the position to start saving for a house, Restons solicitors get in touch mentioning impending court action. Please help me avoid a CCJ! I have a CCA request with the £1 postal order ready to go to Arrow, just wondering what to do with
  16. My Daughter has be hassled by Shoosmiths/ARC over an alleged debt with Egg, this started in March 2011 several DCA's have written and to each we have sent a S78 request, and had nothing returned other than a blank 'example' agreement. A couple of years ago Shoosmiths issued court papers to which I filed a defence on her behalf, pointing out that S78 had not been complied with and that a multitude of DCA's and solicitors had written a range of letters alleging debts but for a number of varying amounts. Shoosmiths responded by withdrawing the court application, out off
  17. Hi can anyone advise please? I have received a CCJ threat from BW Legal on behalf of Shop Direct they claim I owe them £1,025.34 (interest court fees included) I rang BW Legal made it very clear I'm not admitting to this debt and they need to prove I owe it Apparently they said the account was opened 2010 ordered 2011 and last payment August 2011. This is over 5.5 years ago. I was in financial crisis, which I have spent the last 5years paying off council tax and rent arrears to rebuild my life. I had a ccj of £5,000 which I only have £400 left to pay. Point is I'm not avoiding pa
  18. Hiya, Not posted on here for quite some time but looking for some advice in how to deal/respond to Motormile Finance. I have today received 4 emails (differing amounts from PTP loans when I was struggling and lost my job) threatening legal assessment by Moriatary Law unless I contact them with 7 days. The last contact I had with MMF was in June 2014 when I sent the template doorstep collection letter then sent the below one. I believe all the debts could be statue barred now (as think they were 2010 but going to double check) and have been working hard to clear my credit file of my other prior
  19. Hi there, For years now, I've been receiving the same letter from the DWP. A vaguely-worded affair, it always tells me I owe the grand sum of £60 to them and to pay up. This usually results in a written response from myself, highlighting that I have no idea where this 'debt' is from and could someone shed some light on the subject. Nobody ever can. One year, I ignored the letter and ended up getting chased by a DCA, who soon passed the case back to the DWP because they couldn't tell me what the debt was for either. This happens every couple of years.
  20. I received a letter today from Rossendales regarding a £500 debt I owe the legal aid agency. Considering my case was only last week they've been fast off the mark. The case concerned an appeal in Manchester which I was unsuccessful. I live in Scotland. I have two questions: Does the LLA or Rossendales have any authority in imposing this charge as I live in Scotland and we do not have bailiffs? If forced to pay what is the minimum I can pay per month? I have no intention of sending details of my personal finances to Rossendales. I have no contacted
  21. I am in very real danger of being attacked or worse by a friends ex boyfriend, he has sent me a death threat on facebook which I am taking very seriously. Having been attacked very badly once before I still suffer from PTSD, Depression and the fear for my life I am experiencing has driven me in to psychosis. I became friends with this couple just at the time they were going through a relationship break up, having met him only a couple of times I found him to be a very unpleasant person, he talked about snuff movies which he enjoyed watching and his love for
  22. Hi, I wonder if anyone could offer me some advice. I am not sure if my question fits into this sub-forum and I am sure it will be moved if I am wrong. Anyway, I had a judgement made against me for a store card a few years ago for around £1,100. I agreed a monthly payment of £15 a month which I only managed to keep up for 6 months and never hearly from them until today threatening an oral examination unless the balance is paid in full or a payment plan can be agreed. I had hoped to be receiving a pension but I only have nine qualifying years, and there is a delay in gett
  23. Hi All I hope I am posting in the corret thread here, if not can admin move it... I signed up for a deal with Holiday Club in Gran Canaria, and when I got home I started asking around forums if they were ligit. People PmD ME from the GC forum and told me not to touch them with a barge pole, as they never give you the dates that you ask for, when you want to take your holiday. Long story short. I used the 14 day cooling off period when I got home, and decided to cancel. In the contract put in front of me, it clearly said that I could cancel. But hidden in the back of the forms, was a cla
  24. Hi New to the forum so, hello. I was issued a pcn by vcs on the 25/10/2014 for allegedly breaching t&c's on a privately operated access roads at Gallagher leisure park in scun thorpe . The charge payable was £60, which after ignoring on advice went up to £100. After receiving several threatening letters from other debt collection agents like, zenith, Rossendales and drp, the last one being March 2015, I have now had 2 letters from bw legal some 15 months later claiming I must now pay the balance of £154. As I continued to ignore the first letter they sent a second letter
