The thread below was kindly provided by unclebulgaria 67 in another thread and I thought it might be requiring its' own thread as it is quite frightening.

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.

ask questions - if someone is legitimate they won’t pressurise you or be elusive.

 

LOL of course they won't

You have to ask the question where are they getting possible victims names from and details of their debts

This info would be vital for the [problem] to work

I love in the advice section

 

 

 

There are some simple rules everyone can all follow to help protect themselves:

 

 

  • check your original paperwork – contact the company you took the loan from to check repayment dates
  • ask questions - if someone is legitimate they won’t pressurise you or be elusive.
  • don’t stay silent. If you’ve been targeted by a fraudster and lost money, report it to action fraud.

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.

Also appreciate the advice on checking the original paperwork!

So, if DCAs are chasing you for a debt without supplying the 'proper paperwork' we obviously need to report them for fraud?


Beaten:

RBS: £4,500

AMEX: £4,200

Barclaycard Visa: £12,100

Barclaycard M/Card: £12,600

(Including the numerous DCAs they have set on me.)

PPI reclaims (into my bank account): £25,000
