I never thought I'd be likely to have PPI

but I finaly relented to one of those cold calls on the basis that I'd be happy to pay 25% for money I never knew I had.


Surprise surprise £812 was payed into my bank account last friday.

By monday the claim company were on the phone asking for their 25% + Vat - £269 the guy said.


I said I'd pay by BACS.

I then realised that 25% + VAT on £812 was not £269 so I adjusted the figure and made the payment.

I had a guy phone me today saying I'm £25 short on my payment.


He said that Barclays awarded me more than £812 but deducted TAX on the interest portion of the payment.



The guy declared that their charge was based on the full ammount prior to deduction.



I said I was happy to pay commission on what I HAD been paid but not on what I HANDN'T.



I've since had documentation from Barclays showing that tax had been deducted.


He started to harrass me then and

I said their charge was unconcionable and I would not pay £25 more. I said see you in court".



He proceeded to browbeat me and the call lasted about 15 mins.

He declared they would pursue me to the end's of the earth for this £25 (or words to that effect)


I'd be interested in any comment or suggestions. Telling me that I should not have used a claims company would not be helpful at this point.

This is one of the reasons that we try so very hard to get people to do this for themselves..


If this were me, I would stick my heels in - you have compensated them for doing pretty much sod all, on the money you have received.


I will try and find someone who might be able to advise further.

It is my intention to stick to my guns.



However they're shysters and I don't want to risk them sticking more costs on in pursuing me to the ends of the earth.



They were on the phone asking for money before the ink was dry

and have called me several times since,

some missed calls and some I received.



They are probably well used to people not wanting to pay at all let alone not wanting to pay an inflated price.

Keep an eye on your credit score. I know this hasn't anything to do with credit or the info the agencies hold, but you never know with a company like this.



Why not get a phone that blocks not just the numbers you say but all International and Withheld numbers. We got ours from BT and life has never been so quiet, it's wonderful.

they cant add anything that would be a reclaimable penalty.



sadly you should have read their T&C's



why not go do it now.




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...
