Hi everyone,

Ive been paying a DMP with Stepchange for almost 2years now. I was told by someone today that my debts can be challenged and possibly written off. Is this correct and if so, do you think I'd be able to cancel the DMP? Thank you

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...

Hi DX and fkofilee.

 

 

 

Original creditors are

 

 

HMRC Tax Credits, Overpayment, Outstanding Balance £7,614.59 and £49.61 via stepchange

 

Barclaycard, Credit Card, OB £4620.65, and £23.08 mth

 

Halifax PLC, Overdraft, OB £3541.74and £23.08 mth

Halifax PLC , Overdraft, OB £299.50 and £5.02

 

Halifax PLC ? ? ? ? £4.53

 

Where I have missed details out, that is because I cannot remember who the original creditor was..

...and for what type of credit it initially was.....sorry :(

 

They are all paid proportinately via Stepchange

 

We have been using Stepchange for approx 20 months

and were paying only the necessary minimum payments to the creditors for as long as I can remember prior to that.

 

Hope this info is what you need in order to advise me..........Thank you

HMRC... First off... Lets see here,

is the Overpayment correct.

Have you verified this with them and asked them how they have come to this conclusion?

--> SAR Them - Its free. Look at the templates in my signature.

 

Each of your credit card debts need to be checked and checked again for

 

--> PPI Payments

--> Default & OL Charges

--> Any charges that are unreasonable.

 

Please tell us who they are with -

-- Original Creditor or a DCA?

If DCA, then you need to send a CCA Request and a £1 Postal Order each.

 

Restons... Interesting... Are you subject to a CCJ?

Who was this debt originally with?

Why are Restons Involved?

 

Please also confirm whos debts belongs to who

... You seem to have bundled everyones debts together...

 

We could do with some help from you.

Stepchange took both mine and my hubbys debts as a package.

That's why they were both together.

 

Neither the us have s CCJ, so obviously an original creditor may have passed s debt on?

 

No I haven't asked HMRC to verify the debt...but I will.

 

What does OL stand for please?

 

I also intend to ask Stepchange if they can provide us with a copy of all the original creditors that we sent them.

 

And does the fact that I am in receipt of DLA make a difference in any of this?

What does OL stand for please?

 

Over credit limit fees (penalty charge)

 

Restons are Solicitors as you are probably aware....and only act/collect for creditors once legal action has been threatened/ commenced.

It was only when I printed details off from Stepchange this morning that I noticed RESTONS and I cannot remember who the original creditor id hence the fact I want Stepchange to tell me who it was. I thought there must have been some automatic transfer of debt ownership between SC and the original creditor to Restons?

You need to investigate...just for your own satisfaction...but Restons dont buy debts..they are not a DCA......they only act for DCA,s on legal matters.

You would like to think so ...but unfortunately no.

Would be interested to know if Shirlthegirlx had any success in writing off her debts.

But I wouldn't bet on it, and like her, I'd be very hesitant to share such personal banking information on a website.

 

 

No matter what anyone says, hackers, banksters, HMRC can all snoop on you and do it legally or illegally.

 

 

Atos for instance use Hacking Team technology. Oh yes they do, just go and look on wikileaks No such thing as a secure website.

 

to my problem with Stepchange, and Citizens Advice Bureau, who direct you to Stepchange.

 

 

Stepchange are backed by the banks, CAB don't tell you that, (NOT A WORD)and are NOT independent good-guys who understand the awful, deceitful, deliberately confusing gobbledygook that is DESIGNED to get people into debt bondage.

 

 

No they are an integral part of this stinking capitalist grab everything culture, we now live in.

And at the other end are companies like Marstons Debt Collections, a multi national company who receive contracts from the HMRC and banks then charge extortionate "admin" fees to bury any hope a debtor has.

 

 

The Advisory Group of these include Elizabeth Filkin OBE, an ex Citizen Advice Bureau cheif., and Marc Gander who runs this website. How much do they pay you Marc ?

Firstly as Marc is an adviser of Marstons, it would "help" me to understand why no one tells a Stepchange customer that "admin" fees are sky high when the banks hand over the debts to companies like Marstons. And what is stopping Marstons from passing these debts on again to put customers even further in debt. What's stopping them ?
