Bazooka,

 

Have they replied to your job application?

 

No:( Do you think they aren't taking me seriously?

Surely we must have a template for ignoring my job application :D.

 

Bit like ringing up Marlin after their sterling efforts the other month, when they or rather Mark? impersonated, himself,an honest DCA, a Solicitor, a second 'honest' DCA, and anyone else he imagined, never did get to speak to him, no matter how many times I rang up:D


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

It would appear that DLC have now taken on a new role as secret agents.

 

I received a letter from them telling me that I am now on their Debt Surveillance Program and that I am being monitored by their Debt Surveillance Department.:eek::cool:

 

WTF is this all about. Does MI5 know???8-)

 

Oh yes this is the company that last week was threatening CCJs and Baliffs and now this hush hush department are offering a 25% discount.

 

I thought DLC would have been too busy with their chicken department at this time of yearto start up a new secret surveillance unit:rolleyes:

 

For Faccenda re Facile

 

So in a nutshell, what do's that mean,,surviellence?

Debt Surveillance

If you are at the stage of writing-off a debt as uncollectible, outsourcing the debt to a specialist partner who can apply a committed Debt Surveillance programme may be a suitable alternative.

 

Our chickens monitor the financial status of debtors for up to five years using periodic contact via telephone, letters or. well disguised chicken agent visits. Keeping regular contact and adopting a sensitive and focused approach to all aspects of the process ensures that if financial circumstances improve, the introduction of an appropriate collection method can then be implemented.

 

Cluck, Cluck...Cock a Doodle Doooooo!

A Dormant Company means they have no transactions going through their books but are registered as a company for other reasons. IN MDB's case any money they collect will go to Hillsden Securities, the parent firm. Canvassing off the premises means they cannot turn up at your door uninvited and offer you credit.

Poultry is Robin Facenda's primary business. The Hillsden premises are next door to one of his chicken factories. An ex-employee wrote that in the Summer the stink was awful. You will go a long way to find MDB in Banbury - the address doesn't exist. They also give a divertionary phone number so you won't know you are actually phoning Brackley. The OFT know about this but Tony is still sending these letters out.

A response from someone @ DLC:

 

Without the details of the letter which you refer to, I am unable to respond in detail to your complaint.

I can however assure you that all of our system letters are compliant. The term ‘debt surveillance’ is quite regularly used to refer to a process by which an account is monitored or revisited, often used in cases where we have not been contacted by the account holder to make arrangements. This term is not intended to be misleading and in fact can be translated quite literally.

If you require any further information that relates to a specific account or our procedures in more detail, I would require a debt reference and DPA confirmation to be completed.

Total and complete ballacks. Given how big a deal they make of this in their standard letters they know precisely what impact this could have on some people.

Erm, nope.

 

The only regularly used phrase I know from DCA's is 'After your recent communication I can advise you this matter has been passed back to our client. Please leave us alone and don't be mean to us again':D

 

Not as catchy as 'Debt Surveillance' I admit, but I like it:D


Time flies like an arrow...
