About time the OFT did something for their wages.

"To love unconditionally is the greatest gift, laughter is a close second" .To give your time to help others after being helped here is the best way to show your appreciation to your fellow CAG members.

I get a fresh start to get on with learning to live with severe disabilities when they could have had something if they'd been understanding...

Shame they don't take the same attitude with the various "Trading style" names that DCA's use

That was the old Meritforce "Bureau of Investigation for England and Wales", at one time (I think it was Robinson Way) had "National Register of Debtors for England and Wales"....

 

IQOR had to change their name as the original was deemed 'inappropriate'.

Blair, oliver and snott are just a different desk in the HBOS collections department :!:

They all get the same name in this household, regardless of what colour crayons they use.....

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!

The point I'm trying to make is that Halifax pretend that BO and S are nothing to do with them, where as they are the same entity, they get paid by the same company,

that is very misleading. They try to distance themselves from the dirty business.

Same as Hamptons, Lowells, Red and the various HFO companies.

 

Why don't the OFT put the whole DCA industry under caution and any company that gets more than X amount of complaints over a 3 month period gets all its court cases pulled and investigated.....

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.

Were talking about mis-leading consumers, why is one acceptable and the other isn't. Maybe it's because they are big.

 

but the article is not about DCA's but Debt Management companies, entirley different beasts

If getting peoples interest is all its about then I am in the wrong forum, call me old fashioned but the aim of this forum and the whole CAG web site was to offer advice to people in similar circumstances, it appears recently that offering advice is offering yourself up to people calling into question the advice given in good faith, and no Tingy I dont mean you, but some of the new breed of Site Team members should take a look at their posts.

 

Signing off now and doubtful if I will come back

Hey, come on PGH, I know you don't mean me - I'm not a member of the site team, BUT it was my mistake that the original title was misleading. That's because I skim read it this morning and posted straightaway without engaging brain fully. I thought, and I think rightfully, that people on here would find it interesting and it wasn't something you'd just stumble across reading the paper.

 

I for one will happily stand up and say I appreciate your advice. I know I disagree with people on here, but only in good faith, not in a nasty way. It would be very sad if you were not to come back due to the coomments of a minority when I'm sure the majority appreciate all advice they can get.
