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.

The best one was the lottery a few months back-allowed you the chance to win your account-anyone remember that one ?

Who was it who did the lottery? That's one of the silliest ideas I've ever heard - even by DCA standards.

 

Now, if I won the lottery (assuming that I'd have enough spare money to do so), I might have to buy a DCA. Then, tell all the staff that they're unceremoniously fired in particularly curt and direct terms - oh, the satisfaction.

 

Something like the newspaper editor in CAPRICORN ONE.

I'd buy a DCA and turn it into a 'Greengrocers':D

I remember a DCA that invited its "customers" to "bid" on their accounts (thereby restarting the SB clock!).

Speaking of bidding, wWho would like to start the bids on which DCA is next to go to the wall?

4/1 - Intrum Justitia

I've also had a 30% discount offer from Cabot. Now, let's work this out. They paid Goldfish about 5%-10% for an account that had a face value of about £3,300 (actually is was £0 but that's another story). Since then, they've added about £500 in interest and now they are offering me 30% off an account with a balance of £3,800, so they make £2,700 for doing nothing.

 

Not bad business if you can get into it.

 

By the way, if I won the lottery and could buy a DCA, I'd flog all of the accounts back to the debtors at what I paid for them if they wished to purchase.


Before you criticise another man you should first walk a mile in his shoes. Then, when you criticise him, you'll be a mile away and he won't have any shoes on.

 

Don't get me confused with somebody knowledgeable by all those green blobs. I got most of them by making people laugh.

Hi Martin

 

Nice offer from my good friends at Vanquis.........

 

I have also been fighting them for the last year over payment protection insurance that I never asked for plus charges and ove-limit fees at 50% APR. After getting them to admit that PPI was never requested, I have issued a small claim in Scotland that is sceduled to call before the court in mid August.

 

I am also going for compensation and damages since they have posted defaults on my credit file, using the Durkin judgement.

Ah ok.

Think mine was around 2004.They failed to comply with my SAR-not sending everything.

Next thing I knew they sold the account to CABOT-who are in breach of a CCA request.

Hi Martin

 

Now you mention it, their responde to my SAR was very poor, no statements and just a few screen prints. They did however show 3-4 calls a day to my mobile over a two month period.......
