I suggest you log all calls and tell them to go away, hoping they won't. Send the usual harrasment letters. Make sure you answer all the calls and if possible record them. Then take them to court for harrasment.

do you have the original contract? you get 14 days cooling off period. you can cancel before the 14 days is up. I would let this ride and simpy laugh at them when they ring you and put the phone down. do not speak to these scumbags or confirm to them who you are.

no dca can remove your goods..only a court can order that... this is simply a threatogram.we are noticing that godebt having taken over these ycc agreements seem to be getting more and more desperate in an attempt to get any money that they can out of people..do you still have the original agreement?

lets start with this one..send em this

Dear Sir/Madam

I do not acknowledge any debt with your company

Acc/Ref No

you have contacted me regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself.

I would point out that under the Limitation Act 1980 Section 5 “an action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.”

I would also point out that the OFT say under their Debt Collection Guidance on statute barred debt that “it is unfair to pursue the debt if the debtor has heard nothing from the creditor during the relevant limitation period”.

The last payment of this alleged debt was made over six years ago and no further acknowledgement or payment has been made since that time. Unless you can provide evidence of payment or written contact from us in the relevant period under Section 5 of the Limitation Act, we suggest that you are no longer able to take any court action against us to recover the alleged amount claimed.

The OFT Debt Collection Guidance states further that “continuing to press for payment after a debtor has stated that they will not be paying a debt because it is statute barred could amount to harassment contrary to section 40 (1) of the Administration of Justice Act 1970”.

I await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed and that no further contact/action will be made concerning the above account after that last letter.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

I certainly wouldn't be that polite debt4get, I would tell them where to get off and insist they take court action. i would be very rude on the phone without the use of profanity and not let them get a word in.

 

You really should get a telephone conversation recorder nita63 and take this all the way. Trading Standards won't take any action against them. They might get your letters and phone calls stopped and that is it. Godebt will just move on to some other poor person who owes nothing but might fall under their pressure and pay something they don't owe.

 

Trading Standards, like all the responsible authorities and bodies in this country, are totally useless and have no teeth.

Due to a move (no fault of my own - I was ill) from on end of the country to another and not being able to find another job I was not able to keep up with the payments.

 

Yes car credit told me that if I handed back the car that I would not have any further money to pay that that would be it.

 

So I handed back the car.

 

A week later I was chased by GoDebt for the outstanding balance which was about £5000.

 

They most annoying thing was at the time I had only had the car for 8 months and I bought if from them for about £3500 but when they resold it they only got £1500!! My car devalued by £2000 in 8 months.

 

I queried with GoDebt the integrity of Yes Car Cedit at the time and stated that I had been completely done over and they said that as long as I paid them back an amount which is only £25 a month they were happy with that - for a debt company to be happy to receive this measly amount they must know that Yes Car Credit are in the wrong and they are getting money out of me that they shouldn't be getting.

 

However at the moment I am not sure how to go about challenging it so to keep GoDebt happy I am happy to part with £25 a month.

 

If anybody knows how to take these slime balls down I am happy to give it a go - as I still have about £4,500 left I would be happy for any pointers.

 

Also Go Debt rang me last week and offered if I was to settle that they would reduce the debt by half?? Unfotrunatly as I dont have a dime to rub together I am not able to take advantage - but such a huge reduction they must be getting itchy feet and trying to revcover whatever they can.

Hi I have a similar situation as you. I have'nt seeked any advice my story is a couple of years ago I made a huge mistake by going to get a car from YCC I was self employed young and stupid so I got a car from them. I could'nt afford to pay them so I asked if I could call off my contract (within 7 days) but they kept ignoring and telling me they would call me back. They reposesed the car now im lumbered with a £6000 debt with GoDebt. They called and hassled me and threatened bankruptcy and even said my mum could get chucked out her house! They were telling me to borrow the money off a friend or family to avoid bankruptcy. Is there anything atal I can do im currently paying £30 a month but I don't think it's fair I have to pay £6000 for something I have'nt got. Or is that just the way it is when you sighn the contract? My parents always advised me not to take the car but being at a young age you think it's all ok and not think about the consequences.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Martin I think you are out of order suggesting this is not to be used as an advertising board. The solicitors probably had no idea that their name was put on here so how can it be an advert. GDK was merely offering good advice. You know better than anyone that not all solicitors are up to speed with consumer credit. At the end of the day I thought this site was aimed at getting the best deal for the comsumer. A better way to look at the situation may have been to ask the solicitors concerned to sponser the site. I use many different forums and most don't allow advertising but of those I use I don't think any would have classed that as an advert. Now if Stephenson's came on here blowing their own trumpet that's a different matter.

I've read the thread and whilst there are issues there are still people on here who have found them very helpful. I still think that the post in question was not turning this board into an advertising board. If you do use a solicitor you have to be prepared to pay if you loose whichever solicitor you use so they ain't cheap.
