Hi all,


My parnter got a later today from CCS Collect for the DWP for the amount of £297.99 :confused: The letter is fairly threatening (standard we want your money letter).

The problem is she has no idea what the debt is and the letter only gives here 7 days or they will take court action as it says :shock:

can anyone please advise me on this please. Is there a letter we can send them asking what the debt is???


ps: sorry about the faces but i have only just noticed them :p

Dear Sir/Madam


Account no:


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


I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).


I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.


I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.


Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.


I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.


I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.


I/we look forward to your reply.


**Edit to suit**


Remember, don’t sign the letter.

next will come the notice of 72hours for home visit, wife got one of those from this bunch of fools yesterday. She was quite distressed she phoned me at work cos the letter claimed they were coming to look in her house for goods to sieze and would be making recommendations to the court (lmfao)

SB'd as well lol oh and threats of court action ect.. Wish she would listen to me more often, when DWP wrote i told her ring and tell to sling there hook and if they g opassing to DCA they can expect to be named on the court filing as parties to harrassment.

Anyway, i told her to ring DWP and lay it on em and tell to it would be in everyones interest and mostly thiers if they pulled the debt back from these clowns. Which she did, poor DWP rep got a right rollocking of her.

unfortunately she then rang the debt collector and gave them a piece of her mind, sadly this took a while i will have to pay the bloody telephone bill cos its 10p a minute or thereabouts.

Mind you poors fools won't answer her calls or even ring her back now lol - amazing what a bit of knowledge does to these clowns is it not?


make sure your so called debt is not SB'd if it is tell em to FO
