The OFT refused to grant a licence on the grounds that Mr O’Rourke did not have the specialist skills, knowledge, practices or procedures in place to become a licensed debt collector

 

----------------

 

So why is this person different to all the other pondlife DCA's, I think the OFT should apply its criteria fairly

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!

Quote of the year 2010?

 

"Debt collection is a high risk area and we have a duty to protect consumers. Anyone who does not meet the necessary standards of competence will not be allowed to engage in this activity." :-x:-x


As of 03/03/12 please do not under any circumstances wait for my further input or guidance on any current thread or defence of a court claim I might have been involved in on or through Cag.

He must have been of a really, really poor standard of competence, if the other DCAs are an example of those that apparently are fit to hold a licence :rolleyes:

Exactly what I was thinking earlier but never posted. I won't post it but I read of a debt collector in the press recently ... um ... well, they were violent to someone ... over a very small debt ... in their home ... Whilst the article didn't say whether they were just someone who was owed money as they referred to him as a 'debt collector' thus putting into the minds of readers perhaps wrongly he was, it did cross my mind what would happen if that person ever was employed in the future by a debt collection agency. Just something I remembered reading a few weeks ago.

I am positive that there is a debt collector gene or they were cloned from the money lenders in the temple.

Or................................... perhaps he was polite, with a good mastery of the English Language, had actually read and digested all the guidelines and showed a modicum of compassion:lol:

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.

They were 'cloaned'. :lol:

 

As to the temple ... 30 pieces of silver ... or was it a lot less, depends where you read. ;) Actually, quite possibly 30 pence even in a DCA's case in their eagerness to shackle the next poor victim ne soul in their snare and purchase a debt then pursue said poor soul with the hounds of the apocalypse for the full amount!

Blimey! He must have been really bad to be refused a licence, judging by the calibre of those who have been granted one!

Probably not in my case, as I am a complex individual who confuses himself at times but the one gene I have an abundance of (they do not) is way too much compassion. ;) So, no they definitely wouldn't understand me nor anyone else with the same gene called compassion.

Maybe he forgot to enclose his "tribute" with his application.

 

I wonder if this "Industry" has ever been investigated by the competition commission. If not, it is well overdue for one.

Err.... he failed to disclose that a previous licence had be revoked.

 

You can be any sort of ******* but don't lie to the quango that is supposed to police this thing
