Hi,

 

I wonder if anyone can help me.

 

I have a credit card which I have defaulted on with Vanquis Bank

who have passed the debt on to their collection agency Impact Collection Services.

 

they are bombarding me with calls every day and it is doing my head in.

 

I wrote them a letter asking them to only contact me by letter but they continue to call me saying they did not receive the letter.

 

They will not give me an e-mail address when I ask them on the phone.

 

Has anyone dealt with this company in the past and have an e-mail address for them so that I can send them an e-mail regarding the calls

 

Would be Appreciated

SO they claim not to have received your letter, yet you stated it on the phone and theyre not complying? Formal complaint time i think, both to vanquis and the DCA, and also the OFT as they are in breach of OFT guidance.

 

Send the complaints by recorded delivery and make sure you track receipt.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I've experience with Impact/vanquis "not receiving letters". Their also entirely unwilling to provide e-mail addresses of their staff. That said, get the letter sent off recorded delivert as above AND, email their chief exec, Peter Crook - peter. crook@ providentfinancial.com.

Copy in the OFT on all complaints. vanquis have 8 weeks to respond then you can complaint to FOS. Don't be messed around by this bunch.

I recently had an issue with Vanquis similar to this one. After agreeing a monthly payment of £40 pm with Vanquis i got a letter demanding full payment from Impact debt collections. I think i will have to consider a complaint myself.

OFT guidance comes to mind here. Specifically misleading debtors as to the current status of the debt.

Vanquis are difficult to deal with re their outbounding calls and the use of spamming numbers. I was verbally abused by one of their operators and when I complained, the call could "not be located". Staying off the phone is difficult as they use that many numbers it's difficult to keep track.

 

Like rene said, recorded delivery for post, or, email the chief exec peter.crook @providentfinancial.com

 

Make sure you confirm in writing that you will not deal verbally.

Mike770,

 

Tis ridiculous the lengths these parasites will go to justifying their harassment,

 

I've a complaint sitting with FOS, OFT and OFCOM where I e-mailed the chief exec demanding all in writing. Totally ignored, anywhere up to 18 calls per day for the previous 6 weeks including calls to mobile, landline and work. After 6 weeks they suddenly stopped and they seem to have crawled back under their rock.

Sounds familiar, ignoring all request, if you send e-mail to vanquis/Impact you get automated response to ring and that is all every time, they will start another way no doubt? last I was told Lowells came on the scene stating they bought that somebodys alledged debt, we are learning as we go along!

Their stance is to ignore, ignore and ignore some more. I asked as part of my complaint to OFT/FOS how Vanquis/Impact remunerate their call centre operatives and how they can ensure that such remuneration ensures the fair treatment of customers. I'm looking forward to a response as Mr Crook seems entirely incapable and refuses to provide an answer.

he's an odious individual representing odious companies.

And this well crafted paragraph from the Guardian "Crook used to work for high-street banks such as Halifax and Barclays and pays himself close to a million a year. He is a living, wheezing example of everything that is wrong with the financial industries. This man doesn't design airplanes, build computer chips or hunt bosons. He's just a rich dude who has found a way of funnelling large quantities of our taxes directly from the benefit system into his own bulging pockets"

And finally, I nearly felt sorry for the staff after reading this super blog about how Provident treat their own staff.
