Hi Everyone,


I contacted Moorcroft yesterday [by Telephone] I know that was silly but as I say I was fed up with the constant merry go round of repeat letters that were being sent. I told them that I could only afford the £1.00 per month that I had previously offered BCW & Snotcall as I am on benefits. Moorcrap then said and I quote" We can only accept that kind of payment if you send us a Financial Expenditure form," end qoute, I told them that a County court only has the right to request one of those and not a DCA, she then said and I qoute" It is Company Policy" end qoute, I told them again that only a county court has the right to ask for this form and I will offer them £1.00 per month. She basically refused to accept this payment offer and only accept £5.00 minimum without the I & E Form, I then repeated myself that I will offer £1.00, she returned saying that they refuse to accept this offer, I said so you are staing that you are refusing my offer, she said without a I & E Form YES.


Any help with this would be grateful, I want to know what to do next incase they take this further. The debt was with Orange Communications and Moorcrap are the third DCA since September chasing this debt, BCW were willing to accept the payment but they then passed the debt onto Snotcall

Hi debt4get


I have not disputed the debt as I am well aware that I owe it, but I did have an ongoing issue with BCW with the payment plan, One minute they said they would accept the offer, then they said they would not, they did offer to accept it as they provided me with there bank details and I started paying, but they just started sending letters back out to me telling me to provide and I & E form as they were unhappy with the payment arrangement.

You know its not a good idea to phone them, so why do it? I would rather have letters, you can be in control then.

They will not put anything in writing that they said in a phone conversation.

I would ignore everything they send to you.

If it goes to court you will only have to pay what you can afford anyway.

Moorcrap are very greedy, I'm playing with them myself at the moment.

If you wish to pay at £1 per month that is YOUR decision to make. If you make the payments and they cash the payment then THEY have accepted that payment.


The reason they don't like accepting less than £5 per month is that they know that if they did go to Court and you can prove you are making regular payments the Court is not going to be best pleased as they will only order the same amount anyway!!


Also, of course with todays' bank charges I suspect it costs them more that £1 to bank & credit your account each month:D


If it were me I would just ignore them, but the above is my suggestion if you want to make payments.


Now you have first hand knowledge of WHY we suggest to never phone them!

Every journey begins with a single step :):)

The only person entitled to your Personal Finance details is a Judge not a DCA


Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.
