Helping out a few family members/friends with debt problems.


This week one person rec'd a NoA. First time I've ever actually seen one. How much more fun is there to be had?


And yes, its from the Leeds Losers lol..


Shall I send them a sarcastic reply thanking them for paying off the debt? something along the lines of:




I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for interesting yourselves in my financial affairs.


It has been brought to my attention that you paid an outstanding debt on my behalf to ( bank name)

I cannot thank you enough for doing this as I was unable to do so myself. You have restored my faith in the goodwill of others and you sir are truly a good Samaritan.


If I may be so bold as to mention, I do have some other outstanding financial matters that you may wish to take a look at and having spoken to some friends and family they too would like you to look into their financial affairs.


I believe that the sum (bank name) accepted from you as payment of the debt was around £20.00, well done to you sir for managing to reach such an amazing deal with the bank. I had tried in vain to get them to accept that amount from me but to no avail, you sir have clearly mastered the art of negotiation.


I have already written to the queen asking that you be considered for an award for services of charity to the people, I do hope it is acted upon.


Yours most thankfully,

(this was posted by a regular on here a while ago..)

Love it :) The danger is, of course, that DCA's start to consider themselves as charitable organisations and produce adverts asking people to sponsor a starving debtor for £1 a month. When some kind person phones them to do this they will be imediatly told that £1 is totally unacceptable and unless they pay the full amount within 7 days then the matter will be handed over to one of their local crucifixion teams ;)

I'll send a nice reply for now.


The letter example I posted was by Brig or someone similar.
