Hi there,

 

I stupidly put off a payment to Paypal to resolve a negative balance and subsequently NCO are now after me to recover the money.

 

I phoned them up and paid £20 off the debt (£184) in total and agreed to pay the remainder on my payday, this is however looking bleak as its looking like I'm not going to be able to afford it.

 

Would a company like this be sympathetic at all and accept maybe 3 or 4 installments to settle the debt?

 

I would appreciate any input on this,

 

Thanks :)

Well initially I'd ask them to substantiate the debt, but I'm assuming you want to pay it from your post. In which case I would TELL them how I intended to make my payments, how much, how often etc. and ignore any nonsense from them after that.

 

Mainly you need to not panic about this :)

Phew!

 

I get really worked up about these things, I have aspergers which can mean I forget very easily, and totally inadvertently about what I owe. I just hope they can understand from my point of view that paying in one lump is too much.

 

Thanks for your advice, I shall let you know the result after I ring them tomorrow :)

Don't telephone them because they will try to bully you into paying more than you can afford, put it in writing.

I wouldnt worry about what they think as they are not legally entitled to money off you anyway.

Okay thanks for all your advice so far, its giving me a clearer picture of the process.

 

They have set up a payment to leave my account via debit card on my payday, are they legally obliged to cancel this upon my request?

Put a block on your debit card 1st thing tomorrow morning at your bank & order a new one.

Do not give them any card or bank details in the future.

Well to do otherwise would be an unauthorised deduction. Can you cancel the payment?

Okay I'll speak to them first, if they refuse I will block the card, and make all further correspondence by post.

 

Do I literally just need to tell them what I can afford to pay and thats it? or can they if they so wish demand full amount and leave me with no choice?

 

thanks.

They can't demand anything altho' they will try to convince you otherwise which is why you should deal with them in writing only.

And can't demand anything, so the requiring some form of payment in 7 days or further action will be taken threat is... empty?

The further action they would take would be to send a nasty letter - who cares!

Didn't know that.

 

There is a way with these monsters, and I thought I was totally doomed!

Cancel your card today !!!!!

 

I had the same thing with NCO. They called me and demanded I pay up (about £60) I told them they were not going to get a penny and to not waste anymore of there time. Its paypals problem and not mine, they gave the refund not me.

They called twice and I have no heard from them since.

 

Your problem is you have already given in once and paid up and they will prey on that weakness.

 

All they do is call a few times and send some threat letters, they really are not worth the time to be bothered by them. Just ignor the fools.


Ash.

Hi guys,

 

I phoned NCO today and they seemed surprisingly accommodating. I offered to pay back £40 a month and they were fine with it, I have been told it has been put in the system and I'll receive a phone call on payday for the money.

 

Now... is this totally legitimate or are they still going to attempt to take the money...?
