Hi guys

 

Ive had a letter this morning from Transcom Worldwide (UK) saying my debt is £23.03

 

this is for eBay fees which i was unaware about as my grandad passed away recently and forgot to pay the fee's

 

was reminded this morning from this threatening letter saying i must pay £23.03 by 12th December

otherwise it will be passed to to door to door debt collection or to their solicitors for further correspondence,

 

i will pay the eBay fee's on Wednesday but i won't be putting a little extra into Transcom Worldwide i will pay it direct on my eBay account

then tell them the debt has been settled with eBay so back off.

 

Im looking for you good peoples advice on this

 

Thanks

Not sure what you want us to add, if you pay Ebay then it will be setlled, have Transcom added anything extra on ?. Generally DCA';s cant do this, although there may be something in the Ebay T&C's that allow it.

Just pay the 15 squid then, DCA's like to add on extras but unless there is a contract that allows extra fees then they cant be added, but bear in mind ebay's T&C's are lengthy and may allow such a charge.

 

Transcom can go without their £8 :)

Andydd is correct: pay eBay and ignore the idiot DCA.

I had used eBay for years, I had a ~750 rating and yet in order to stop the letters and phone calls from a revolting & vile DCA I had to close my eBay account.This wasentirely due to a DCA trying to collect ~£8 because of my having made alate payment to eBay.

 

I understand eBay wanting to be paid. I do not understand eBay employing bottomfeeding DCA's after the eBay feeshave been paid with the sole purpose of chasing the DCA's own collection fees.

 

eBay has gone down the pan.

Ha..What a joke, it appears that firstly it is hardly worth a DCA spending time and money sending a demand for £8 and secondly Im not sure if the Ebay T&C's allow extra admin fees to be added on anyway.

 

As mentioned ignore, it would appear from what you have said that your ebay account is now all paid up and operational so Transcom can go take a flying leap, they arnt stupid enhough to start court acdtion for £8 and they have prob spent mjore than thyat on staff/paper/postage contacting you !

 

Just write back, point this out and wish them a Merry Xmas :)

@ Andy:I agree with your sentiment entirely.

 

For me the issue was that eBay will release customer details to ****-of-the-earth DCA's for trivial amounts on the basis of eBay terms & conditions which are almost certainly unenforceable in a Court.

 

eBay is now just another "chancer" organisation that will sell its soul and its customer's private details for a few pennies.

 

eBay is the company that it keeps: ****!

I am closing this thread - the original thread starter has confirmed that they are paying only the ebay fees as requested by ebay and nothing extra that the Debt Collector might have added.

 

Subsequent posts about statute barred debts etc, are IMHO totally irrelevant.

 

In response to noyourrights.. any credit debt can become statute barred - 6 years from last payment and your abuse of site team will not be tolerated.
