Hi all,

 

Out of the blue today, I received a letter from a DCA called Fredrickson International Limited, and all it says is the following:-

 

"Dear X

 

We have been instructed to collect the outstanding balance on the above account.

 

We have made tracing enquiries for confirmation of your current place of residence and information has been received confirming that your address details have changed to this address.

 

Please contact us immediately on 0845 0349711 quoting the above reference."

 

It seems a bit strange to have received this, it DOESN'T mention who the debt is owed to, and the reference number on the letter has no relevance whatsoever! I'm not going to call them as I don't want to open a can of worms!

 

I do owe Barclays a sum of money for a loan which a PREVIOUS debt collector tried to collect about 2 years ago, but they couldn't supply me with a copy of my signed credit agreement, so they wrote back saying they had closed the case.

 

I also owed Smile a sum of money for a credit card, but haven't paid that for about 4 years or so nor have I ever heard from anyone chasing any payments!

 

So what advice do you guys offer? Shall I just ignore it and see where it goes?

 

Regards,

Lee

Ignore and wait for the next letter. The next letter should tell you who the original creditor is and then you can decide what to do next.


We could do with some help from you.

Keep a diary of events, and file everything including the envelopes they send their rubbish in, as it is Freds you should expect to receive some irrelevant nonsense from their side kick Bryan 'bloody' Carter.

 

If they can't be bothered to tell you what the debt actually relates to, then firmly ignore the fools, you should also make a complaint to the OFT/TS via http://www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/contact for once again, failing miserably, to inform you of the reason for contacting you.

Hi all,

 

I've received a 2nd letter from Fredrickson International Ltd, this time it actually has details of who the debt is owed to! Here's what it says:-

 

"Re Brand/Product: Additions Direct

Balance: £800 (just over!)

Our Client: Phoenix Recoveries (UK) Ltd S.a.r.l

 

Dear Mr X,

 

DO NOT IGNORE - IMMEDIATE PAYMENT REQUIRED

 

We are instructed by Phoenix Recoveries (UK) Ltd S.a.r.l to collect the above debt which is now seriously overdue.

 

You have failed to pay the balance of £800 (just over!) which remains outstanding despite previous repeated requests for payment. Our client now requires payment in full to avoid further action.

 

YOU MUST CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY ON 0845 0349701 to discuss the matter further.

 

Payment should be made to Fredrickson International Ltd quoting our full reference number. For your convenience, payment can be accepted by Maesto, Delta, Credit Card or Cheque.

 

This is a serious matter and you may wish to seek independent legal advice."

 

 

Now.....I do recall owing Additions Direct Catalogue a sum of money, but can't remember how much! It's been a good 3 or 4 years since I made any payment! What steps should I take next? I can afford to pay it (on my hubby's credit card!!), but of course I'd rather tell them to politely F Off if I can!! What should I respond with?

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Lee

Send them the prove it letter from the templates, it sounds like their standard pishing exercise.... Fredricksons are one of the firms which specialise in nearly statute barred debts.

 

You need to head the letters "I do not acknowledge any alleged debt to you or your agents or clients...."

Which letter in the templates section should I use?

I got one of them letters from Fredricksons yesterday, re Additions catalogue. The must be starting at the begining of the alphabet, either that or they can't get past "a". I would like to be a fly on the wall in the morning when they receive the "account in serious dispute" letter. Moorcroft could not provide a CCA in 2008, so I doubt if they will be able to now!

Thanks for the info - but is there a letter within the template section that I should state the above on? Or should I literally just knock something basic up?

Is this the one I should send?

 

Regards,

Dear Sir/Madam

 

You have contacted me/us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself/ourselves.

 

I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).

 

I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading debt collectionGuidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.

 

Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.

 

I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.

 

I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.

 

I/we look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

Last question before I send this off tomorrow...

 

The address at the top of the letter from Fredrickson is a PO Box address - I can't send a recorded delivery letter to a PO Box address can I?? There is a registered address at the bottom of the letter which is in London (whereas the PO Box address is in Surrey) - so should I send it to the registered office address instead?

 

Thank you all so far for your help!

 

Regards,

Lee

I have sent plenty of letters to PO boxes so don't worry about it. The post office will do it by the post code anyway.

 

I'm sending them a letter tomorrow too so they'll both land on the table at the same time.:-)
