hey guys,

 

i've been to-ing and fro-ing with Lowell now for a while, they originally sent me a letter stating i owed 3k from 2002, i sent them the Stat Barred letter, to which they replied the account is not Stat Barred, because and i quote "a payment was 'attempted' in Feb 2005".

 

however, i have just realised they have put a default on my credit report.

 

my question is, how can they do this, when no proof the debt is still enforceable? i know that this seems to be normal practice for these clowns, but is there any way in getting this taken off at all?

 

Will i need to send them a CCA request? As i have literally given up the letter 'tag' game with them until they send me proof the debt is not SB. (just them stating that it isn't SB in a letter is not proof)

 

Any ideas Caggers? :D much appreciated in advance.

 

Az

Personally I would contact the CRA and advise them that as the debt has not been verified, and is not legally enforceable as it is SB, they should remove the incorrect data from your file, and whilst you are waiting for them to do this, they should send you a copy of their complaints procedure, and a complaint will also be filed with the ICO also.

Thanks for the advice Bazooka Boo, i'm going to do just that. it's crazy how they can pretty much mess up your whole life (re. mortgage and any future credit) on a whim. getting sick of them dictating my future, someone has to stop this now, before it goes too far and they keep pushing the boundaries to see how much they CAN get away with. neverending cycle of bull from DCA's.

I know man, i think it's classic, they make me wonder who had the company brain cell the day someone typed up that pre fab response. :D

Ooohh, it makes me want to ring them and ask them what exactly is an "attempted" payment!

Do they mean they saw me open my wallet and take out my credit card? Or do they mean they saw you go into a Post office and enquire about a postal order??

Or is simply 'thinking' about it enough to warrant "attempting" to pay their sorry a55e5:evil:

Maybe they're going to diversify their business and enter into the world of Janet & John books or even produce Jackanory programs. ;)

I would send them a nice little letter telling them they have 14 days to remove all adverse info from my credit record. If they don't, hit them straight away with a court claim.

 

Damages for this type of incident are about £5000.

Hi all, I think everyone I have spoken to has had a bad experience with this company. My situation is that I have actually cleared my debt with these guys 4 months ago and they still have not up dated my credit file after many requests. I just do not know what to do next. Any ideas? :-x

Its typical sleezy behaviour from DCA's - they make out they will amend your credit file accordingly, but once they get the money - dont.

I personally would demand what id paid them back as they had no legal authority to it in the 1st place.
