Ok how do I handle this?


In November I was late with my eBay fee's of £15 so nothing major, I paid them 4 weeks late in December I thought that was that,


a couple of days after I pay I get a letter from Aktiv Kapital saying I owe £21,


I phone them up and ask whats £21 for,

they say £6 is for their fee, I

say its already cleared "Aw you still have to pay us our fee" I said I wouldn't be paying and hung up.


I swear to god every day since they have phoned at least once a day,

I know their number and haven't answered.


Today I receive a letter from them saying I have a debt balance of £9 even though the debt has been cleared.


How do I handle this,

I will not be paying for the fact the debt was cleared before I had any contact from them,

they can add a couple of zeros on and I still won't be paying it.

unless they own the debt


they have no legal remit to add anything.



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

you could write to them and ask them for a copy of the credit agreement between yourself and themselves and point out that their response will be forwarded to the OFT as part of your complaint regarding unfair practices and harassment. Also point out that any further telephone calls by them will be recorded and used to lay a complaint of harassment as a criminal act as well as the civil tort already mentioned.

Send them one of the telephone harrassment letters - and ask your provider to block their number for you.
