    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi All,

First time poster.

I was wondering if anyone can help.

 

About a year ago i was chased by the BCA and the debt collection agency CCS Collect.This was for books never recieved,and therefore being unaware was unpaid.

After speaking to both parties I eventually managed to get the issue resolved,cancelled with no payment from me.

 

End of story???? Not quite....

 

Today i recieved a letter from S C Gray Solicitors saying I owe the money,and its to the penny what I owed last year.I phoned them straight away and explained the situation,I luckily still have most of the documentation from last years incident,and the guy,who was helpful,asked me to write in with a dipute of debt notice.

 

The questions I have are

 

1=What is a dispute of debt notice and how do I go about writing one?

2=Why after all this time would the debt suddenly re-appear when I have already had it cancelled by BCA and CCS collect?

3=Any other bits I should be looking at doing to get this stopped once and for all and hitting me again further down the line?

 

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered.

 

CJ

You are being asked to produce written proof that you disputed the debt...............pretty hard to do if you sorted this out on the phone.

 

Did BCA send you a letter confirming the resolution reached betweeen you ?

sadly you're obv on a phishing letter list for a while

 

there is little you can do as you've made contact and it will be noted they've found a mug to pester.

 

your best bet at present is to fire off this letter:

http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/573-general-debt-letter-if-you-know-nothing-of-the-debt

 

then if you get any more from diff chasers just ignore them.

Hi Guys,

Bit of a follow up.

After believing i had sorted it out,they (BCA) did not send the letter to the solicitors instructing them to remove the debt,and i have now found out it has been passed to a door collection called Scot Call.....!!!!

Any further ideas on this one?

How do i get them to stop,can I threaten legal action,harresment or the like?

Thanks as always

CJ

Scotcall are unlikely to send somebody round - if they do they have NO RIGHT to come in and ask you for money - they will be a commission only based 'field agent' and snooping. They are NOT bailiffs (even though they sometimes claim to have the same rights). They have less rights than a pizza delivery person or a postman.

 

There is also a letter in the templates you can print out and give to them, keep it handy just in case.

 

Also check on the date of the letter from Scotcall, I had one dated 11th August giving me 7 days to contact or they would visit, this arrived on the 17th....

Also the 'field agent will call' will also mean a possible telephone call - in which case tell them 'in writing only' and put the phone down. Don't forget to block whatever number they are calling from as well.

You say you have most of the documentation from the original incident, do you have anything amongst it which states that they cancelled the debt & that no payment was due? If so, just send a copy of it to whoever is sending you begging letters now. Otherwise you may have to send BCA a SAR to get transcripts of your telephone calls or any entries made to your file relating to them.
