Hi,

 

I have alot of credit card / loan debt. The most recent was 2005 and some span alittle earlier than this.

 

I was was the CCCS but since becoming unemployed they are no longer interested in helping me. My only income comes from a sponsorship deal to play poker and that brings in some money each month.

 

CCCS have no interest in helping me as they dont agree with the way I make my money so now im fighting the sharks by myself and im not sure what to do.

 

Creditors: RMA Resolve (Amex) 3k

Barclycard 5k

Collect Direct (Egg) 11k

capital one 8k

Moorecroft (Egg) 3k

AIC....local thugs! 11k

 

I have written a letter as advided saying Im in difficulties and will be making token payments until I can pay in full.

 

Does anyone have any advice in what I cn do or the best way to go about getting out of the mess that Im in?

 

I also have an application going through with the police so I really dont want to go bankrupt as the police thing will be screwed.

 

Would you suggest an IVA? suggestions would be welcome.

 

As my debt is old O dont know if I should look into the Credit Consumer agreement....I have sent off to the companies and asked for this CCS document but tbh I have no idea what im looking at to see if they have legally broken any lending law :(

 

TY so much in advance.

You need to send a CCA request to each and every one of them as a starting point, or stagger this if you would feel more comfortable not taking them all on at once.

 

Start with Capital One, they don't do enforceable credit agreements and there are plenty of threads on here which you can have a read through.

hi welcome first you need to find out whether any of these debts have enforceable cca, there is a letter in the template section, the dca have 12 +2 days to come up with agreements otherwise accounts go into default and you need not offer payment nor may they ask.

each letter needs to be accompanied by an pound postal order, do not sign any letter print only.

i see at least 2 on your list where chances are no enforceable agreement will be forthcoming, the others i do not know about having not dealt with those banks.

also never ever speak to these people on the phone, insist you will only deal with them by letter, if they continue to ring, make sure you send a harassment letter.

when agreements if they do come back arrive, post them on the site making sure you remove all identifying details. and someone will advise you on enforceability

The important part of the CCA agreement is the part headed "agreement regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974" or words to that effect as far as I know. You can ignore application forms as all they prove is that you applied for a card/loan. Also in relation to credit cards, the lender may send you a 20 page document entitled standard terms and conditions (as HSBC did), not worth them sending it as it has no legal bearing on the individual as it doesn't relate directly to your account. Having dealt with HSBC previously on this issue they often send a load of old s*ite because they don't have the actual signed agreement in the hope that you will believe this is what a CCA agreement looks like and will pay up.

 

I too am fighting RMA, moorcroft, and AIC so have some idea of their tactics. As mentioned before don't talk to them on the phone. If they ring and ask for details for security purposes just ask them for who's security. If you don't give them that they can't continue and will soon get bored. Just give them as much s*it as they do you.

You might be ok, the only exemption that is catagorically stated is that you can't be an undischarged bankrupt. All other cases are on an individual basis, although I doubt a CCJ would help.

 

I've been through the police application process as a special constable and got through it even though I have a couple of defaults and an old settled CCJ. I'm not sure whether full time police application is more strict but just go with it and best of luck

Just had a scan over your agreements. I must state though that I'm no expert and there are people on here far better qualified at noticing omissons of prescribed terms etc. The Barclaycard one definately looks suspicious though as they've just sent you their standard terms and conditions. This doesn't consitute as your agreement (it's not even signed!) The other 3 look legit to me but as I say don't simply rely on my advice as I'm sure there could be something in these that I've missed.
