Oh how I wish we could see their faces when they open it :lol::D

 

Hope you don't mind, but in the sentence "you are not obliged to pass this on to" it should be "you are not allowed to pass this on to "

I do hope you post up their response :D

 

In the unlikely event of getting one I certainly will! They've given up phoning me a while ago and this is the first auto generated template crap I've had for a while. My first reply to their standard crap was equally charming.

 

Unlike the advice on here - which I think those who aren't used to should take - I actually speak to them on the phone when they call. In fact I love it and love winding them up, I usually ask them to take me to court so we can speed everything up. Currently in a quiet patch though at the moment. I have 14 accounts all in dispute and the only current phone calls are the boring ones from Mercers who just don't give up phoning. Even when I speak to them they read their notes back from past calls and then say "Yes, we spoke to you on such and such a day and you mentioned you had no intentions of paying ever" Yes I did, so why are you still ringing me?"

 

I think the funniest one was the agent that came round form a Natwest account passed onto CD UK. I made him a cup of tea, sat down in the lounge with him and then proceeded to baffle him to the point where he knew I knew more than he did so he brought the moral card to the table - "you've spent the money sir, don't you feel a moral obligation to pay it back?"

Me- " well morally let's say someone takes out a credit card in 1990 - they spend £10K on it and then pay back the minimum payments for the next 17 years at whatever crazy APR it's on - so for arguments sake they pay back £250 per month which is a total of £3000 per year x 17 making the total amount paid to the lender over a 15 year period £51000 and the balance is still £10000. Now you wish to question the moral aspect, lets talk about that shall we" He didn't spend much longer in my company.

Hi Wilko1,

I have got one of those yellow cards too! Account also in dispute. re Phoenix recoveries.( littlewoods) I was going to send something similar to what you are sending, as I have lived here 14 years and never denied it!

I was thinking of sending..have reported u to OFT, and can confirm that your head office is...(it's on this website somewhere, just need to find it again.)

I look forward to reading their response to you.

"They don't like it up em you know" :-o Pike to Captain Mannering Dads Army:D

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
