If you must speak to them -and the golden rule is not to but tell them to put everything in writing - tell them you are paying all you can afford. If they threaten you with court, tell them to carry on because no court would ask you to pay more than you can afford and if that is supposed to worry you, it doesn't - then hang up. My guess is that they won't go anywhere near a court - it just part of their bullying tactics.

If they've got an enforcable agreement they can (and will) pursue it through the courts, but the OFT and the courts themselves will take a dim view if they've not given you a reasonable chance to come to an arrangement.


I'd advise NEVER speaking to Link on the phone (not saying they're a bunch of bankers, but.... ;) ), rather write to them with a proposal for a repayment which you can genuinely afford. Don't leave yourself short, and don't over stretch yourself just to keep them happy.


Chances are they'll accept - and you'll have the letters to prove it. The OFT's guidance on debt collection says in 2.6.f that it is unreasonable to pressure debtors to pay in full or in unreasonably large amounts when they cannot afford to do so - Link should be aware of this advice.


If they phone, politely but firmly tell them that there's a letter on the way and that you will not be dealing with them by phone. If they continue to ring, just hang up on them.

  • Barclays: WON!!! It took four months but was totally worth it!
  • Cabot: I'm still waiting for an enforcable agreement, more than a year after requesting it. Go on, Uncle Ken, take me to court if you dare. You know you want to!
  • Elephant.co.uk: VICTORY - they admitted there was no debt!
  • Ashbourne Management (gym membership): Finally got my default removed and out-of-court settlement; I'm not finished with them yet!

<--- If I've been helpful please remember the scales ;)
