I have just been to visit the Cabot website for a nosey, it has changed since I last visited.


Found there is a page on each of the main men. This is their Risk Management head man, guess he is busy with the "rogue debtors".



Cabot Financial Group

Is he new? If not, he's not very good at his job - otherwise how could he let them buy all those statute-barred debts and all that other unenforceable, uncollectable rubbish.


Or should his job title really be 'Risk Of Being Found Out As Not Compliant With Statute And Regulations Manager'?


Mind you, their website also contains such risibly untrue nonsense as this:


We pride ourselves on our loyal staff and very low staff turnover.


and this:


We ensure our detailed compliance policies are stringently enforced.


I think I shall continue to maintain a high index of suspicion regarding anything Cabot say.

Ah, yes. Owned by a poor victim of the US Credit Crunch. How many billions written off? How many heads rolled?


And all because the greedy gits thought they could lend safely to "can't pays". When the reality should be obvious..... If enough Can't Pays then Don't Pay, and you flood the market with cheap repossessed houses, what's going to happen to house prices in general?????? And the economy will....???


Exactly. Silly beggars, ain't they? And they call us rogues!!!! :D

POST 2 ON this thread is it new news or old news ???


good quotes like

About 5% of accounts in the UK are suitable for litigation. The point is to go after can-pay or can-pay-more accounts, says Locke, referring to debtors who refuse to pay or who won’t pay an appropriate amount relative to their financial wherewithal.


“You have to balance where you stop spending” – when the effort has become unproductive – “and analyze where you should spend more, based on the expectation of liquidity,” he says

5% suitable for litigitation, wonder how much ofthe remaining 95% are on CAG?


On the latter, do any DCA realise at the earliest opportunity to actually stop spending?

note the bit about


the individual creditor

meaning iyouare a cagger the decision to stop spending will be made much earlier






Speaking of liquidity, recovery rates in the UK can vary broadly depending



on the asset class and the individual creditor, Still at CPL says.


“The trend is for creditors to work cases harder and harder in the initial


phases,” he says. “As a rule of thumb, expected collection rates at month 12 on


bank debt would be 8%-14%;

telecom, 30%-50%;

utility, 10%-22%;

and mail order [retail catalog], 10%-16%.”


a primary agency will be allowed to retain an account for only six months

and must obtain a promise to pay within

that time or the account will be removed

to a second agency or sold

Not in the case of Cabot, unfortunately. They seem to be under the impression that it's good to go to court with a worthless piece of toilet paper, and an unprepared local brief on occasion.


I do think they are learning though. :lol:



However :-- "food for thought"


The district judges in my court try to meet regularly in order to discuss matters of interest and to preserve a degree of consistency. ‘Bouncing thoughts’ off each other is a useful exercise and one in which the circuit judges are only too willing to participate. We have a lunch meeting of all the judges at least once a week.”
