I am asking for advice regarding my situation, which I accept are entirely my own doing ;

a couple of years ago, I set up a DMP to repay my debts, and all is going fine with the repayments ;

unfortunately, within the last 2 years, I have succumbed to the temptation of 3 separate pay day loans, mainly due to a change in employment resulting in a decrease in wages ;

I took the loans out with the intention of repaying each in full, but circumstances have dictated that I've now reached a position where my next re-payment exceeds my take home pay !

naturally, I need to do something about my position ;

the next payments are due on or around 27/08/13 ;

my intentions are ;

- to inform my bank to stop taking CPA payments to the loan companies (by phone, e-mail and letter)

- inform each payday company of the situation (by phone, e-mail and letter) requesting them to stop charging me any further interests on the amount's due, and offering a monthly re-payment (based on an income/expenditure calculation) resulting eventually in the full re-payment of all loans ;

I would be grateful for advice from anyone who has experience of such situations ; I am aware that payday loan companies are notorious for their lack of co-operation in such matters, but I believe that I have reached the point of no return ;

for the record, the companies involved are Wonga, Pounds to Pocket, and quid.co.uk

I would not rely on the bank cancelling CPA's. For extra safety I would open a new basic bank account and have wages paid into that.
