Up until recently, I have been borrowing from multiple payday loans (common mistake, I know) which escalated until I couldn't cover it anymore, ending in a cycle. Since then, I have been with Harrington Brookes to make sure I recover from the scale that I am in.


However, despite being assured that my accounts are functional and being processed - Marshall Hoares Bailiffs have continued to contact me by phone and e-mail, until that one threat that they are making that door visit. In which case, made me really worried because I have just told my folks that I have my debts under control (which it is, as I have a repayment plan being set-up). The contact I have at Harrington did say that I must not contact the said bailiffs in any way and only mention that I am already with them and that they are handling it.


The big question, after that big phone call threatening you of a visit. How long does it take for them to get here? As I may want to be ready.


PS. I am a new member and a desperate one as it is already 8PM and both companies have closed their call centers for the day :(.

First off, drop that fee paying DMP and go with a free one.You are wasting money that could be used to pay off your debts. Regarding Marshall Hoares, they are very well known to us, and they are an off shoot of a rather dubious persons Payday loan company. They are also in blatant breach of OFT guidance on debt collection, as they should NOT be contacting you at all whilst you are in a DMP. All correspondance is to be directed to your DMP, who will then relay to you.


You also need to ignore any phone calls from them. These con artists will say and do ANYTHING to force you into paying. Get a good nights sleep and call your DMP in the morning. Do NOT call the DCA on the phone. You must let your DMP do that. If you have to contact them, then only do so in writing. NO TELEPHONE CALLS.

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 wish I discovered this forum when I was dead worried about repaying, but so far, Harrington rang when I needed the help and provided me the reliable information that I needed, with a price, obviously.


Thank you for the reply, really appreciate all the information you guys share in here. Wish I have found this sooner.

Yeah. Apparently, my details were up from a third party source. I don't know. I'm guessing LendingStream. i received a number of calls from other services after that.
