Hi,

any advice would be very much appreciated. I have received an email off a company called Hillesden Security. It asks me to urgently ring a number quoti ng a reference number. It doesn't say what it is about but I have looked it up and see that it is a debt collection agency.

 

I am scared - should I ring them or not? I have obviously not phoned them back.

 

It maybe related to £600 that I owe a college that I did a course with. I was a month late applying for a grant from student finance that would have paid my fees. I was depressed and had high anxiety levels at the the time and the thought of completing a long and difficult form seemed an impossibility to me.When I did complete it i was a month too late and student finance turned the appication down.I was already a good amount through the year of the course. I had had the fees paid the two years before as we live on a low wage. It took 8 months for the GP to get me onto a dose of antidepressants that worked for me. I finished my course 9 months after everyone else and it took ages for my life to return to normal. I haven't got the £600 to give them.

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

Hillesden are nothing to worry about just yet. As they haven't told you what this is about, they may not even be chasing the right person.

 

Wait until something more concrete arrives through the post then you will know more

 

If it is to do with the money you owe the college, how long ago did you study there?

Certainly nothing to get worked up about, never ring them or entertain them over the phone.

Until they write and confirm exactly what it is they are rattling your cage about, ignore them.

And even when or IF they do decide to write to you, don't forget they have no legal powers whatsoever.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Thanks for the advice. I have now received a letter and it turns out that it is to do with a Sheilas Wheels insurance policy. I called them to say that I wasn't renewing my policy last december and the DLC are claiming that I owe them the money for it. I have rang up Sheila's wheels and they confirm that I don't owe them anything and they have said they will tell the DLC that I don't. I hope that is all I hear from them, I am really annoyed that Sheila's Wheels refers non-payment cases so quickly to a debt collection agency - especially when they themselves are saying that I don't owe them any money! It made me anxious and if I was a more vulnerable person I would have been even more anxious about it! I shall be complaining to Sheila's wheels and will never go with them again!

Can you email Sheilas Wheels and get them to confirm this in writing. This is to protect you as it is known for DCAs to continue chasing even when told not to or Sheilas Wheels 'forget' to tell them.

Keep everything in WRITING.
