Hi Brigadier

 

I thought it might be a long shot re: the email address but worth a try.

 

I will send off the F.O.letter and warn them never to darken my doorstep ever but just so frustrating how ambigous their letters/cards are.......'we will be contacting you'..........'on 'Thursday' talk about open ended, what does contact mean and which Thursday?.

 

Told them a couple of months ago this matter was in dispute with Amex; nothing from Amex to say given/assigned/transferred to RMA.

 

First Newmans try to bully me into caving into to unreasonable demands for repayment now RMA, truly on the DCA 'merry go round' now.

 

Will write them the don't come here letter and will note the fact I have heard nothing from Amex re: it being assigned/given to them to collect.

 

Thanks

Just reviving an old thread on my Amex account. Initially Amex dealt with this through Newmans who threatened all sorts of action, SD, Bankruptcy, personal callers, etc but: after some excellent advice from caggers I sent a cca request and all went quiet.

 

I had written to Amex at the start of my financial difficulties, sent them a copy of my income and expenditure, offered £5.00 per month, did the same with Newmans (long before I was advised of the error of doing that via CAG) Amex refused on the basis I had no disposable imcome..

 

Now have a letter from NCO, demanding immediate payment or legal action. No word from Amex this has been assigned to NCO.

 

Amex used to send me statements, which showed they were charging me £16 p.m in interest; they refused to terminate the account. The sum owed has increased by over £300 since I last had a statement from them.

 

Wondering if I should write to NCO and make it clear I am not prepared to deal with them without anything from Amex confirming their right to collect this debt and cahllenge the additional charges/lack of statements.

 

Tempted to start making payments directly to Amex via standing order and try to totally ignore NCO.

 

Who the FUDGE do these people think they are, just a letter out of the blue, I suppose I should be used to it by now.

 

Had a real lull in threatening letters/calls lately, been great not having to fend off these leeches for the last few months; think I may have 'gone off the boil' a bit.

 

Any suggestions???????

 

Should have mentioned this was an 'e'application and acccording to the advice I received here they do not require a valid signature on the cca, your payment history and statements are sufficent to prove the cca is valid.

 

Just noticed a lot of guests viewing?

Hi

 

haven't been on here for some time;last year after some excellent advice from CAG set up regular rduced payments for most of my creditors and things have been relatively quiet for several months.

 

This morning had a call from someone asking for me and refusing to give me any information apart from the fact they were MDR.

 

I refused to confirm their security questions and the call ended.

 

Would this be Moorcroft?

 

Quite a few of my payment plans are coming to and end about this time;was going to send off income and expenditure details to negoiate further reduced payment plans but it looks like some of my OC's have beaten me to it.

 

Wondering which of my OC's would have instructed them? do they usually act for certains companies?

 

After being harassed by telephone in the early part of this year dreading the telephone merry go round starting again.

 

Just checked the number and it is Moorcroft.

 

Suppose will just have to wait and see.

Don'r dread the telephone harassment.

 

What I have done is to record all telephone conversations on my ipod where I tell them that I consider their calls to be harassment...upload to computer and next time they phone I play the recording back to them informing them that I will now ring the police and start a civil claim for damages.

 

The calls Stop!

It might be Northern Debt Recovery - NDR, a supposedly dormant company - either way tell them IN WRITING ONLY.

Thanks KF and Sillygirl

 

Since being on CAG I certainly know enough now to never speak to them on the phone and if only I was advanced enough to know how to use an iphone record/playback would certainly be the way to go.

 

I have checked the number and it goes back to Moorcroft; I have had two letters from OC's stating they now need to know my I & E before they agree another period of reduced payments but haven't even had a chance to get those done yet.

 

I'll wait for my letter and keep my thread updated

 

Thanks

Hi Mike

 

possibly NDR, however put the tel no into search engine and it came up with Moorcroft but may be wrong. Can't get the number back now, initially did 1471, got the number but since another call so cannot retrieve the first number.

 

Going to take sillygirls advice and wait for a letter, I'm sure the threats will be along shortly, but will be ready for them this time.

 

Spent a lot of last year and the beginning of this year not answering the phone/checking the post; won't be doing that this time.

 

Thanks for your dvice

Hi bubbsie1

 

This is MDR tactic which is against OFT Guidelines.

 

They call you ask for someone say they are MDR (which means nothing to the normal person) so when you question who and what is MDR they refuse saying you need to confirm your details first.

 

MDR is another lowlife DCA called MOORCROFT who when calling people use the gise of MDR.

Hi All

 

got home this evening and a friend told me 'Chelsea' had called and left me a message to call her; friend assumed Chelsea was a friend so took a message. needless to say I did not call her back it was the same number for MDR who had called earlier in the week.

 

Again when I return home Thursday evening late from work messages from MDR timed at 08:14 and 08:19 that morning and the same friday.

 

In the post a letter from Moorcroft, threatening the usual, pre-litigation letter, we will recommend our clients take legal action etc. if it goes to court you could have credit problems in the future (feel as if I never want to have/need credit again).

 

Coincidentally i had a letter from a firm called RMA about 10 days ago in respect of the same debt (Amex). This morning a call from 'Kate' at MDR asking for me I said 'just a moment I'll fetch her' and put the phone in a drawer for an hour.

 

I wrote to Amex and RMA earlier this year making an offer, the same amount as I pay my other creditors, they rejected it.

 

So now I have two DCA's chasing the same debt; Moorcroft calling me early in the morning, here we go again.

 

Wondering the best way to approach this.

 

Any reasonable suggestions welcome.

IMO I would put them on strict notice that the phone calls must stop, and any subsequent calls will be logged and reported to the Police for the criminal offence of harassment.

RMA don't have any authority to reject anyone's offer of payment, so they are clearly deluded!

 

Check your credit file and see what is on there, also make formal complaints to the OFT&TS via consumer direct.

Hi BB

 

will be writing to them tomorrow re: the phone calls and telling them to put everything in writing. Initially I made an offer to Amex when financial dificulties started; they rejected my offer and sent the debt to newmans who plagued me for a while then gave up. Heard nothing for several months until I got a letter from RMA; told them I had made a request for a copy of the signed aggreement.

 

Again heard nothing for a while until approx ten days ago when RMA wrote to me, the usual threat letter, then out of the blue started to have phone calls from MDR (Moorcrofts) and a letter from them saying pre-litigation letter etc.,

 

The sort of letter that would have made me panic before I came on CAG.

 

So now have two DCA's chasing the same debt; I must be special (lol).

 

Will take your advice and report it.

 

Waiting for the next instalment!!

 

Thanks Boo

Write to your creditors and state your finacial situation has not improved but rather worsened so you are unable to increase the amount you pay. Make sure you continue to pay what was offered/agreed/you have been paying. Personally I wouldn't send another I&E but if you do send the one you sent last time.

Hi BBNB

 

at the moment not paying Amex anything, they refused to accept a lower payment and just referred the matter (initially) to Newmans who also said my offer was not sufficent. After Newmans RMA contacted me and again said what i had offered was too low, now I have RMA amd MDR chasing this debt.

 

In fact just had a call from a pushy young madam from MDR (Moorcrofts) and told her in no uncertain terms that their calls were not welcome and anymore would result in a complaint to the appropriate authority/body.

 

Amazing isn't it how their attitude changes when you challenge or stand up to them.

 

I may try paying Amex directly into their bank account (yes it will be a standing order) but have a feeling they may have put a block on thatt; won't know until I try.

 

Thanks for your advice BBNB; this time last year in an absolute panic, Newmans the first DCA involved tried all sorts, even threatened a Statutory demand and Bankruptcy for the princely sum of £1300.

 

Will try to pay direct and update my post on the result.

 

Thought it had been too quiet lately, should have known there was a vulture lurking somewhere.

the shoe is on your foot if you pay and continue to pay what you can afford; it makes no difference if they throw their toys out of the pram. It shows you are willing to pay what you can afford and shows them up for what they are - greedy bullies. You made the offer in good faith and with an I&E initially to support you. they might postuate about taking you to court, but what would they argue if they did? Think logically. However, you need to keep a careful record of what you pay and to whom. They can't block a SO, only reverse it. If they do that, take the evidence to their CEO, the papers and most definately your MP!

Hi All

 

just a quick update on this post; received another threat letter from Moorcrofts (MDR) re this debt. In the last two months I have had letters from three DCA's chasing the same matter.

 

The first from RMA, the second NCO and now the third Moorcrofts!!!!

 

What to do?

 

Is it worth a complaint.........or do i write to each advising them of the others interest, or will they already be aware ot it.

 

Are these DCA's linked to one another, such as Lowells/Red.

 

Any advice appreciated.

Just make a complaint to the OFT&TS via consumer direct. And ignore Moorcr@p they along with all of the others can do exactly ZERO.
