Hi, as you may have already seen from my post earlier today, we appear to be in a similar position. Indeed, I also have a DMP with CCCS, and a boat load of secured debt. I saw a sign recently that read "when you reach the bottom, stop digging". I took this on board and am now trying to sort out this unholy mess as best I can. My first issue is with the 2 payday loans I have, as the interest cripples me and the debt never actually reduces! My advice is the advice that I have gleaned off this fantastic forum (the people on here are real diamonds), and that would be to write to the pay day loan comapnies, and offer to enter into a repayment plan and ask that they freeze the interest (much like the DMP we have with the CCCS).

 

As I am at the very beginning of this process, I can offer no further information. Reading through the many threads, it would appear that it is going to be quite a process with many, many phone calls and letters etc. However, if you are like me, although not wanted, I can put up with a few phone calls if it means I have a little extra money to feed my family!

 

Anyway best of luck, and keep posting, I know I will, and maybe we can give each other some tips as we go along.

I am not sure about the CCCS as they did tell us not to take out any more credit when we entered the DMP. I was thinking about maybe contacting them via an alternative e-mail account without disclosing who I was, and advising them of the situation and just asking the question. At little sneaky perhaps, but I simply could not afford for my DMP to fail otherwise I would be in a deeper hole than I am now! To answer your other question, I have not actually wrote any letters as yet, as I only decided to take this action yesterday! I was however thinking in the region of £30 to payday (i owe £350 + interest) and £40 to quickquid (i owe £500 + interest). What do you think of these amounts? Some people have advised to pay only as much as you can afford, and I can only afford about £5 each!!!! However, I do think you have to find a realistic amount and the amounts I am going to offer seem fair to me. I will not be offering more though, and in the highly unlikely event that this goes all the way to court, I am sure the courts would deem this sum fair also. I am sending my letters at the weekend as my loans are not due whilst the end of the month, and hopefully the fact that I am letting them know "pre-default" might count in my favour. Just remember, it seems that plenty of people have already gone down this route, and it appears that the debts get passed to a DCA and they then accept the lower repayments. I know people keep telling me to not worry but its not easy! Let me know if you have any thoughts of your own, I need all the help and advice I can get!

ha ha, yeah I know what you mean, I think our lass should have been a DCA, everyone would pay every penny straight away! I could not decide if contact by e-mail or post was best, so I would be grateful if you could let me know how you get on with that. I chose post as I can send this recorded and I know they have the letter in their possession. I have noted on the other threads that they appear to ignore quite a lot of emails and letters, and try to make all communication via the telephone. I have never contacted any creditor this way, as you have no evidence of what was said/agreed. Hopefully though, the email scenario works as this is a hell of a lot easier!

Fair enough. You will have to do the work yourself with realistic offers of payment - may be only £1per month. Take time to read some of the threads as each company will react differently - most importantly they can only have what you can afford to pay

Keep posting and we will help where we can

They shouldn't be able to but be careful about them resetting the direct debit. You will have to be constantly vigilant. I have seen an occasional payment go through on a cancelled debit card as well. Hard work getting the money back when it's left your account.

Even if you cancel the direct debit. They can set up another one to take payment. As they know your payday they know when to set it up. I have just arranged repayment plans with a few payday loan companys and i have set up standing orders to make the repayments. I had cancelled my card prior to this. But one company has twice set up a direct debit in the past 3wks, but cancelled immediately by me.

Hi Willy.

 

Just an update as promised. Basically have been e-mailing both quick quid and pay day uk, each e-mails states my offer of £30 is the maximum I can afford, and also states not to contact me by telephone.

 

A few e-mails have gone back and forward. Payday UK rang me twice, but these calls have stopped when I said I was going to report them. Their last e-mail requested my income and expenditure, this was nearly a week ago and have heard nothing at all since (a bit worrying they havent been in touch at all, but I suppose they could be badgering me every two minutes, so not gonna grumble too much).

 

Quickquid have told me they cant accept my £30 offer, and offered me a repayment schedule of £200 per month (like I have that kind of money!). I am again going to send an e-mail stating my offer today.

 

Just to go back to my earlier idea of contacting the CCCS. I could not actually find their e-mail address, so in the end I decided against contacting them! Do not want to jeopardise my DMP, and I am certain (with the help from this forum) I can sort this out myself!

 

So that it where I am at, any ideas or thoughts? How are you getting on with yours??
