Scottish Power use Scotcall

jaxads

 

Halifax - £2281, successfully refunded all charges after LBA letter & telephone call.

Have been offered the difference between the £20 and £12 charges from Capital One -- am sending LBA for remainder.

GE Money - Received settlement of £441, being total charges requested. No interest though.

CCA'd Bank of Scotland / Blair Oliver Scott to produce CCA Agreements on two Credit Cards - well in default, although still chasing payment!!!

EOS Solutions "ceased action on account" on behalf of a friend.

 

All in all, quite busy at the moment and enjoying every minute of it
:eek:

I am currently with Atlantic Gas & Electric but they come under Scottish & Southern Energy. We are in the process of setting up a Fuel Direct Claim to clear arrears and suddenly a revised bill arrived with 3 x 'Collections' visits of £25 each plus VAT! When I queried this with them, they flatly refused to tell me who had been to my house (NOBODY!). Strangely the next day, somebody did arrive at the door (1st time ever!) and he left me with his calling card from SWALEC.

 

The bottom of the card says

 

SWALEC are trading names of the Scottish and Southern Energy Group of which SSE Energy Supply Limited and Southern Electric Gas Limited are members

 

In-House:confused:

British Gas uses Central Recoveries (trading name of British Gas Trading Ltd).

They also use LCS Civil Enforcement but at the moment can't seem to find if it is in-house

EON are going to stop using ECS as a name for an internal DCA when the accounts currently in the process have been worked. Accounts that would have been handled by ECS are now going to be handled by Buchannan Clarke and Wells (BCW) who are a real DCA.

 

Utility Debt Services still deal with final accounts and are an in-house collections department

British Gas Service and Repairs s [ spanners ] use the Scottish firm -- Buchanan , Clark and Wells although funnily enough they state on their FINAL NOTICE that should the debt not be paid immediately, the account will be returned to our clients [ B.G. ? ] which makes the whole thing pretty meaningless if you ask me. In case any one is interested make sure when you sell a property that you have proof of the TIME that you conveyed the property on the day you sell .You could end up with someone else's boiler o/haul bill.

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...
