Hello all first post here but in a real pickle.

 

On the 14th of June I received a Default notice for £49.07 from Argos Cards.

 

On the 22nd of June I paid the default sums in full (£49.07) and was told no further action was required.

 

After months of battling with the administrators of the company I used to work for they managed to get the money owed to me (roughly £4k) so on the 28th June again I called argos up and advised when I get the payment within the first 2 weeks of August I will pay the full balance, the advisor took an additional £5.99 payment from me and said that no payments would be due on the account until August.

 

Anyhow today I rang up to pay the full balance to be told they cannot talk to me the account will be transferred to their debt collectors and any concerns should be made in writing as they have terminated my agreement, however they could take the payment.

 

After 20 minutes of arguing with the dizzy woman she checked with her manager who advised they generated the letter of default on 04/06/2010 and even though it takes up to 14 days to be printed and delivered they start the 14 days from the date the collections advisor decides do issue the default notice.

 

I advised this is contrary to the consumer credit act, and the default & subsequent termination of the arrangement are illegal the advisor checked with her manager who advised that their company policy superceeds the consumer credit act and this does not affect any of my rights.

 

Now I have paid the balance in full, however checked on credit expert and sure enough my account shows 2 missed payments a green 0 and then default.

 

Please help what do I do?

It's a shame that they never put that in writing, nevertheless it still dererves a complaint to Trading Standards via Consumer Direct http://www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/contact

Funnily enough I did ask her to put that in writing to me, to which she said she would not as her job is to answer calls not write letters, however she said that I have to put all of my concerns in writing.

 

Will Trading standards be able to sort out the damage done to my credit file?

It's well worth contacting them to see what they can do.
