with the amount of money WE are giving the banks they should be writing off all debts and let all of us start afresh. Why should the banks be the only ones not having to worry about the state they have got themselves into?

 

How great for the economy if we could start spending again.

I'm hearring that its a follow up on a certain DCA already featured, about more of their dubious tactics.

Advice offered by ENRON is without prejudice and is for your judgement as to whether to take it. You should seek the assistance or hire of a solicitor or other paid professional if in doubt.

This is good news. Search the threads for 'Watchdog'...

“The industry is rotten to the core, whether it is in-house recovery and collection, or where agents are used, or where the debt has been sold.” Andrew Mackinley MP, House of Commons, 22 April 2009

I have been speaking to Watchdog regularly over last 3 days. The episode will be good......I didn't want to be filmed though :oops:

:)I am not an expert, but I can give good advice about Brighthouse:)

 

Am learning more and more about DCA's too :)

 

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.

I've been speaking to them too over Lowells, they told me that's who this programme is about. I sent them a few documents, they was really interested in the contract Lowell sent me.....

 

Hope they give it to lowell...think they are doing another follow up as well as he asked me if i could be filmed today...but i had to decline, he said he'd call me back to arrange another time to film.

It seems to me that Watchdog takes more notice of our complaints than certain other regulatory bodies mentioned on here!

Should be interesting.

I might not have had any dealing with Lowells but this sounds like it's going to be an episode worth watching.

 

Thanks for the heads-up! Just hope I remember to tune in... ah well, least if any of us forget there's always BBC iPlayer. ;)

An episode of 'Watchdog' I'm also looking forward to - but will there really be anything 'new.'

 

I think all DCAs have system failures!

System Failures!?

Lowell must have an awful lot of; system failures...

 

I have made my complaint to BBC Watchdog about both,

Lowell Portfolio 1 Limited and;

Lowell Financial Limited.

 

Auto response; email received.

 

Enough is enough, not putting up with their covert tactics.

The Banks dont care. They write off the debt and get tax relief on it. Its the greedy **** of DCAs who buy up the debt for buttons and try to CON people into paying them for it regardless of whether or not they can prove it exists.

 

I for one have no qualms about finding Lawful ways to defeat the DCAs as IMHO the are greedy leeches who seek to make huge profits from other people's misfortunes.

Agree.

 

DCA's only exist to make money, if they ceased to exist, organisations owed money would still have recourse to the courts and could simply collect it themselves.

 

That is of course, if they had bothered to do the job they were being paid for and had enforceable agreements.
