    • Just for the record, I am uploading the original letter from CCSCollect, which asks me for the money from "BT" (if it is BT).   You can see here that I scribbled some notes at the foot of the letter indicating that I phoned the number CCSCollect gave me as the BT number, and I was told by "BT" that there was an outstanding balance of £48 in the account. They first tiold me that the account wasn't even closed. Then they changed their mind and told me that the account was closed, but that there was a £48 balance still owing.   Assuming that I was speaking to BT, I kept telling them that the email address did not work, which is why I closed the account.    I recall that I had kept telling BT at the time that the email address didn't work and that I either wanted them to fix the problem or stop charging me their PREMIUM rate charges for an email that didn't work!   On the phone on this occasion the BT man I spoke to (before he called me a mother****er) had asked me if I had actually used the words "! want to cancel this account" specifically. He seemed to be saying this as an excuse for their behaviour of not closing the account when I had complained about it. However, all that is irrelevant, since what I was clearly saying was that I was NOT going to pay good money for an email account that didn't work, and that they shouldn't be charging me money for it in the first place.   Later that day, though, I phoned BT using the operator number (not the number that CCSCollect had given me for BT) and spoke to someone at BT who accessed my accounts (I actually had two old accounts, one for each of the two phone lines that I needed then to do the work that my single Virgin Media account can do now) and he confirmed that neither of these showed any outstanding unpaid balance. I have a recording of that conversation.   So which version is the true version?     
    • Hi DX   I have contacted ASDA who have said they have no involvement with the machine and need to contact the owner who are Barclays - they could not give me any contact details.   I rang Barclay's who were no help whatsoever and could not give me a number to contact - they told me to check the contact details on front of the machine.  However there are no contact details on the front of the ATM.  There is only a sign saying ASDA have no responsibility for the machine and to contact your card issuer in the event of any problems.   I am going round in circles with this and think my only option may be a complaint to the FCO?    
    • There's no mention of using the job application part of the online journal on my claimant commitment. As I say, there's only this one Advisor that seems to want to make it a massive issue - terminating the meeting if I dare to argue back.   I simply have: check it often - complete to-do list (has only ever been meetings to attend on there) - update circumstances
    • he Financial Conduct Authority today launched a legal action against the bosses of a Gatwick airport carpark investment scheme that collapsed after raising £230 million from thousands of savers. Yesterday, it was revealed that investors were suing Park First and its controversial founder Toby Whittaker for fraud and today the FCA launched a separate action alleging the scheme made “false and misleading statements” in its promises to potential investors. A total of 4500 largely elderly investors put money into the scheme, many of whom also lost money with London Capital & Finance. A large number of them used their self-invested personal pensions to buy the product, which involved buying car park spaces at Gatwick and Glasgow airports then leasing them back to the company in return for high rates of return. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/fca-sues-park-first-directors-094900289.html?guccounter=1

Moorcroft an old Natwest debt

Hi,

 

.A while ago, an old Natwest loan was transferred over to Moorcroft as I had missed several payments owing to personal circumstances.

 

When Moorcroft contacted me, I registered myself on their internet page and made an offer of £300 per month towards clearing the debt (which is £8.2k).

 

Personally, I find this to be a more than reasonable amount to have offered.

 

They have had this payment, for the past 4 months, via standing order and everything has been tickety boo.

 

However, just before Christmas, I received correspondence from Moorcroft, advising that they had been supplied with information

from credit reference agency CallCredit to advise that my financial situation appeared to have changed and that they would like me to contact them as a matter of urgency.

 

Now you just know this is not going to tell me that they want to REDUCE my payments, but probably pay more.

 

Luckily, I am comfortable with paying this amount each month and, as a matter of fact, this will be reduced even quicker as I am paid every 4 weeks,

which means they'll get 13 payments a year instead of 12.

 

I suppose if they had any sense, they would have cottoned on to this, bearing in mind the date they receive their money changes every month?!?

 

What I want to know is that if CallCredit HAVE given Moorcroft this information, have they breached DPA rules?

 

Yes, it is true that I cleared a couple of smaller debts just before Christmas that saved me interest,

but I was more interested in clearing these as I knew that paying off more to Moorcroft would not save me anything,

as there's no interest/charges being added on to the original amount owed.

 

I find it incredulous that a credit reference agency is, snitching on me for paying bills.

 

If Moorcroft feel they should be having this money instead, then shall I just stop paying my rent, utlility bills and credit cards as well?

 

That's a joke by the way, I'm not that idiotic.

 

After choosing to bin the letters, Moorcroft have now called today and left a voicemail asking me to call them.

 

What for?

 

I could understand if I wasn't paying, but I am.

 

Are these people never pleased?

 

Could someone please advise on what my next step should be?

 

Many thanks,

 

Ross

Hi welcome to CAG no there is not a breach of the DPA, DCAs and creditors routinely check for ''improvements'' in debtors circumstances.

You are not under any obligation to speak to them or offer them higher payments so ignoe until the start begging letters.

The information will have been provide by a search.

Thanks for your replies guys.

 

They're much appreciated.

 

I honestly don't know the in's and out's of debt recovery and I decided to come on here as I felt aggrieved that,

 

a company that I am paying just appears to want more than the fair amount being offered.

 

I have read a few other threads on Moorcroft and noted that they are rather underhand and that ownership of debts can be questionable and so on.

 

Should I write to them,

 

stating that I only want contact in writing and nothing else?

The last payment to Natwest was in December 2011. The first payment to 'bounce' was in January 2012. It was around September time that Moorcroft got in contact. I made the first payment to Moorcroft on 14/09/12 and they have had 4 more since, so £1500 has been shaved off the debt to date. I have not checked my CRA file, how would I do this please?Thanking you for your assistance :o)

Have you checked your credit reference files?

 

Do you have a copy of the loan agreement, if not a CCA request made under sections 77/78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 can be made, there is a £1 statutory fee and the DCA has 12+2 workink days to comply, use the template from the CAG Library.

 

To stop calls send this to tThe Compliance Manager at Moorcroft.

 

Ref: use theirs.

 

Sir,

I refer to recent telephone contact from Moorcroft regarding the debt I am repaying, please note I will only deal with this matter in writting, and please note I am not prepared to increase my payments at any time.

 

Recorded delivery.

As I said before,

I really don't have any idea about any of these things.

 

I know that probably makes me look stupid to others, but in my eyes it's just a case of a debt that's owed and has to be paid and simple as.

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be as simple as that does it?

 

I'm now thinking that Moorcroft may have now shot themselves in the foot,

as if they'd have just kept quiet and been happy with their £300 a month,

then I wouldn't even be on here.

 

As such, I am now going to be taking your advice and obtaining my CRA and contacting them for confirmation of ownership of the debt!

your cra file will show if thy own it

 

IMHO your need to SAR NATWEST ASAP.
