lastly STAY OFF THAT PHONE!!! never ring a DCA


they can do NOTHING TO YOU


they have NO LEGAL powers!!


good luck


chin up



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I dont want to ask my wife too much about these as it stresees her out. So will have to start at the beginning. I dont know if they own the debts and exactly what they are for appart from cap1.

I would get a letter of authority from your wife giving her permission for you to act on her behalf. Unfortunately, this requires signatures so I would use this little gem:




Sign on top of that, then let them try to "lift" it

Send one to each of the creditors.


Enclose this as well:


Harassment by telephone - Consumer Wiki


I would CCA them before going down the SAR route.


Beware of mr carter, he is sneaky


Go see your GP and see if he/she will do a letter confirming illness.

Hi BK789, sorry to hear of your wifes troubles. Regarding the court summons for council tax if your are not challenging the amount owed I would suggest contacting the council to see if you need to attend, I owed council tax and on attending the court was told by council officials that you only get to see the judge if you are disputing the amount otherwise they just get case against you. My council would only discuss payment plans after they were awarded case. Even after case the council seemed OK to deal with then my employers were sent a warrant to take money from my wages without myself even being notified until later.I managed to challenge the way the council dealt with my case and am now paying a reduced amount monthly as well as the current years council tax.Do not leave this debt as the councils have a lot of powers and can quickly instuct baillifs .Sorry to give you this news but I feel it is better to discuse your problems with your council who are likely to be more helpful at this stage rather than ignore it and have baillifs at your doors.will post more info later .

Council tax first - these boys can do more damage to you than most and you need to sort em out quickly - give em a ring, explain the situation and ask for the overdue payments to be spread across your normal payments - they are pretty much obliged to accept anything you offer them.


Then send out your CCA's with the £1 accompanying fee denying any acknowledgement of the debt...


There is some seriously good advice in here - but you dont sound like you have the time to do much reading up up on the best way to move this forward....


I am just a newbie in here and i have no doubt better advice than mine will be forthcoming quickly - good luck.
