Hi all

What a great forum this is.

 

Hopefully I can get some advice.

 

I received a letter from Commercial Credit Services, for a debt of £35.74 owing to Anglian Water.

I called Anglian Water (AW) and ascertained that yes, I did owe the amount BUT due to an admin error on Anglian Water's behalf they will rescind the CCSG action and half the amount owing. AW will send me a new bill (for £17.37), which I will pay promptly (after all, I did use the water!).

 

My question is:

I am writing to CCSG, with the aim of telling them that I 'have got it sorted' with AW and for CCSG to bugger off (basically).

I have started a letter, stating the claim is in dispute (not really, as AW and I have reached agreement).

So..

I want to know what sort of stuff I should write to CCSG to inform them that AW and I have come to an agreement and for CCSG to halt their process. I will send it recorded (or course!).

 

Many thanks in advance

Just send them this, when they get in touch with Anglian Water for proof they'll get the news from them. ;)

 

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.

Thanks Cerberusalert.

I was thinking I might be a little nicer! :eek:

Just something along the lines of - 'You know what, I've sorted it with Anglian so don't bother carrying on. I know my rights so just back away!'

 

After all, I *do actually* owe the money.:rolleyes: That's not in dispute.

 

I guess I want to be a little more light handed.:-|

It doesn't work with DCAs, they're numb from both the neck upwards & downwards. ;)

To get a rough idea of members thoughts on DCAs have a read through Cheekiness towards a DCA - The Consumer Forums :)

I'm totally engrossed in this whole forum!

How does this sound:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Account no:XXXXXXXXXXXX

 

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

 

We point out that we have reached agreement, regarding this debt, with Anglian Water independently. We are in agreement with Anglian Water that we are NO LONGER LIABLE for this debt.

We would like to 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.

 

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

 

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.

 

We look forward to your reply.
