    • Well I received a reply to my email and I have to say that I'm quite surprised. Maybe Halfords have been taken over by PC World/Currys.     Can we confirm that I understand that you put in all the correct details onto their website and they made the recommendation of a particular set of tyres which you were later told were not suitable for your vehicle?   Can we confirm that you have gone back to the website and you have put in the same details and has come up with the same tyres   What make is your car?
    • Hi @BankFodder and Dx100 thanks for your replies. Well nothing has defaulted yet as I had been able to make payments up until this month for everything. This/next month is when this going to start hitting the fan and I want to  The livelend loan is about a year old.  Bamboo is like a month and I've made one payment Likely a couple of months and I've made two payments.   Aqua credit card I've had for a few years and it started with a smallish limit and they kept increasing it. Say it went to up to 1600 at some point and I used it and paid it back and didn't use it and they increased it a couple of times.   I had always paid it off and had it sitting there doing nothing so they were quite happy I guess. Interestingly they actually cut the limit by 300 to just under 4000 and I got a letter saying after a review they were doing that (I don't know what triggered them to do this). It was only in June that they increased it significantly from approx 2.5k or 3000 to 4100.    Capital One credit card I think they increased it once and again I only used it once and cleared it and then they increased it slightly and I've utilised it all now. I have probably had it a year or so. Paypal credit they just offered me 2.5k limit and I used it for buying things. It was probably opened 18 months ago. I missed payment last month but paid it since. Barclays I've been with for years and am actually premier (lol) and have had loads of money going through my account but never sitting in there for long and I actually don't have to pay anything for my overdraft.   Santander I have had the account for a few years but never really used it too much, it was more of a backup current account and I used it for work once where I needed to keep some things separate. They only recently let me have an overdraft and I it up the wall this month.   @dx100uk Thinking about it I didn't have any real credit for a fairly long time aside from payday loans which I got into a trap with but paid off.    The only thing that was a major negative on my credit file was the closed Halifax account with a balance of between -£3.7k or -£5.2k depending on when they looked at it.   So what I'm saying is I don't think it was shot (though it certainly wasn't good enough to get many "normal" low-interest products.   Bamboo and likely loans are, I imagine, high risk lenders in that they will give them to people with not great credit but with that comes high interest. I think one is 60% and the other 70%! These were used to try and gamble my way out . Nobody sane would take out such loans but as I've admitted I'm deluded. Livelend they were more reasonable around 13%   I feel like I could have a chance with bamboo and likely about irresponsible lending and it doesn't hurt to ask. With everyone else (the credit cards) I think I should just write and offer them £1 a month and say I will review in 6 months (or is it 3? I forget the standard practice).   I didn't realise that considering DRO or BR was "stupid"; The amount I owe feels insurmountable and hence this is why I was considering those options...    Is it better to approach them now or wait for things to default? I don't mind if they pass them off to DCAs but I would prefer to get them to agree to freeze interest so the number owed doesn't rack up.   As I've read countless times DCAs are powerless and have to work with what I offer (which, currently, is basically nothing). I still want to bury my head in the sand but I think for my mental health it would be better to get ahead of things. I guess I shouldn't care about my credit rating now. There's no reason I need to get in this position again. I know that I need to do things in writing and refuse to talk over the phone. Are emails suitable in this day and age or do I need to stick to physical letters? I think that recorded delivery isn't necessary just proof of postage?   Sorry for the long post and I hope I have got my thoughts across.  Thanks again

Hello Everyone,

 

11.45am had SSC forced their way in nearly knocking my worker over as he was fixing the heater above our shop door. They showed me a warrant of entry signed by the district judge. The warrant was not on any letterhead nor did it have any stamp on it from the court not even a printed name under the signature. When they did not give me a copy I presumed that the warrant which was flashed by me was a fake and refused them access to my meter which resulted in three police cars showing up outside my shop. One of the police officers phoned the magistrates court and it was confirmed that the warrant was legit and was signed by a Judge. Now I am disconnected.

My premises has been vacant for 7 till now and only 72 hours ago did we open to let the workman for refurbishments. At no instance have they made any attempt to notify or negotiate personally with us. Is there anything i can do or just pay they're ridiculous off contract (deemed rates) or is it worth contacting my solicitor?
