I have tried to post a link to you and yours BBC radio 4 14/ 06/2012 but the site won't let me, so you will have hunt it down yourselves. I guess I haven't got enough priviledge so perhaps someone else can put the link up.

 

 

It features an employee of Cabot recorded being very economical with the true while trying to [EDIT] less than £50 for a disputed 15 year old debt.

 

The piece is at the beginning so you don't need to listen all the way through.

 

Note how wishy washy the regulator is, certainly not fit for purpose and not surprising that that debt collectors get away with so much.

 

I think we should all phone up Cabot and play the piece back them down the phone, very little hurt more than contempt.

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!

Cabot's refusal to be interviewed or even give a bland statement to the programme said more about this tawdry "industry" than the entire eight minute clip. They should be made to account for their actions to a higher authority than the BBC or face the ultimate sanction of being closed down.

Looking on the plus side. I dont know how many listners this program has, but if it helps to spread the word all well and good. The kid from Cabot what a plum,

he sounded like someone has snatched his marbles.The regulator had his chance to stamp his authority and at least rebuke Cabot, no chance , sounded like an elderly vicar, but the guy handled himself well on the phone, did not give in to their bullying

Remember that these debt companies will tell their staff that ALL debts are collectable and that morally people should pay them.

 

The chap from Cabot may just be doing what he is told. It may be the only job that was available to him and he will do whatever is required to keep the job. The supervisor and managers at Cabot will have listened to the calls of their staff, so they will know what they are saying.

 

I would suggest that debt industry will not change until parliament passes legislation and they have to follow the rules required by the FSA. The debt industry gets away with a lot, because they are not properly regulated.


We could do with some help from you.
