Hi everyone,

 

I have received a letter from The Lewis group requesting a sum of £824.91 Re: Ebay ,

 

totally perplexed i called Ebay who didn't help very much as to what i could possibly owe them money for ,

 

but the only thing they said was do you have more then 1 account with us ,

 

the only thing i could think of was when i worked as a manager for a car dealership for a friend who lived overseas in New Zealand ,

 

he asked me to set up on Ebay Motors which the company paid weekly / monthly etc ,

 

but then the company was struggling when the recession hit and eventually the company closed in June 2009,

leaving me redundant ,

 

i can only think that some money may have been owing by the company

 

but as i used my name to start account and the director is overseas they are trying there luck and chasing me .

 

So the letter states they require full payment by 23 April or for me to contact them or they will pass my account to their field agents and instruct a collector to call at our home.

 

I have read on this forum the 1st course of action is to ask for a CCA which i have in a envelope ready to add a postal order into ,

 

i just wanted to check on peoples thoughts where they think i stand in this situation.

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I think DX100UK means by trashed i.e your Credit File have defaults recorded or adverse data being entered onto the file etc.

If nothing showing, personally I wouldn't worry.

 

Ignore the idiots. If they phone just tell them to get lost or words of your choosing!

 

Please remember that Debt Collection Agencies have no legal powers what so ever.

If nothing is showing on your file, don't worry, I wouldn't bother with a CCA request.

 

If you do by chance get a visit by a Doorstep Agent just tell him to get lost or you will call the old bill to have him removed and give him/her the doorstep letter from the library.

 

Sit tight, don't worry.

Just to add, personally, there is no point in starting letter tennis with this company right now.

 

You don't know what its for, they haven't told you, they're trying to get you to call them, so they can get you to pay towards a so-called debt that you don't know anything about.

 

Stay off the phone to them!!! If they phone, like I said before tell them to get lost & to put everything in writing then put the phone down.

 

If they do come back with anything then they'll will need to prove that you owe it. For now sit back & relax.

never ever talk to them

or hand over money to a doorstepper DCA.

 

tell them to leave

and call the police if he don't.

...................

 

pers i'd not be doing anything

 

but you could send the prove it letter to them
