Hello,

 

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I wanted a little help about this apparent debt I have from a company called JUICE PLUS who have passed on the debt to OCC(Options Credit Consultants).

 

The back story:

 

A friend was selling JUICE PLUS weight loss packs and I thought I'd try one out,

the deal was £20 for a month of supplies which are given all in one go.

And it was a locked in 3 month contract. However I never used the stuff,

 

 

my friend had been fired for a ridiculous reason,

I pursued Juice Plus asking them to cancel the contract and never ever received a reply.

 

I received one letter for them stating I owe them £60 (Even though I paid £20 upfront).

I replied to them via email saying that unless I receive a breakdown of the cost of it in writing

and why they never replied to my first enquiry then I will not be paying

and I'm happy to return the goods unopened.

 

They never replied.

..two weeks later I received a letter from OCC, who said I had now owed £65.

I replied via email, stating that JUICE PLUS had never proven I'd taken out a contract

(Which I had asked them in the email I sent)

nor have they sent me a breakdown or even tried to resolve the issue with myself.

 

They never replied....

 

I now receive this letter (I've written it below the bottom post as I cannot post links to photos for some reason)

 

Now I've NEVER received a letter in my life stating immediate court action,

and I have a general understanding that most of the time this would be a scare tactic to make you pay.

I've only ever received letters asking to pay now or etc etc but never a letter like this.

 

But what worries me is the statutory interest at 8% a day

which has no end date would leave myself in a hell of a debt.

 

 

Also noting they also saying I will be responsible for the court fees

and also that they will get a levy execution on my property,

which for me is great because I don't own anything

and I've always had my parents keep receipts of everything in the house so it's their property not mine.

 

Just wanted some advice on what to do next,

 

I have a short temper and was literally going to call them and give them a mouth full but,

I was hoping for some advice, as that is probably the smartest thing to do.

 

Thanks

read the letter carefully

it doesn't say WILL anything.

 

 

its a std DCA threat-o-gram

designed to make people panic and cough up...DONT!!

 

 

a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

and has

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS.

 

 

ignore.

 

 

dx

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...

Thanks for the reply and help, puts my mind at ease.

 

I've had a recent similar thing with Ebay charging me £26 for being a seller on Ebay, however I'm not a seller. They sent a letter which was less threatening than this just asking for payment and provided me with some stuff to read. After they had shown me the proof I had paid the £26.

 

I refused to even consider paying this company until they reply to my original request.

 

Thanks again

I don't think the link will work because there is an auto-modded word in the link. However, Juice Plus isn't getting very good reviews. IMHO, I don't see how it can be "healthy" when you look at all the chemicals that are contained.

 

If you want fruit/vegetable juices - buy the real stuff and blend them yourself. You can buy a decent juicer/blender quite reasonably priced. You don't have to worry about having "perfect" fruit and Veg either.

 

TBH, I would rather just buy some fruit / veg and eat it as it comes !

I would just ignore any further letters from them. If you have not entered into a contract with them, I cant see they have any comeback against you.

Have to say, that letter they sent is hilarious!

 

It is nothing more than hot air, and a very obvious attempt at intimidating you, there is not a chance on this earth that £65, you don't owe, would ever affect anyone's property, they are clearly deluded, very safe to ignore, just file for reference and keep a diary of events if there is a need to report them to the relevant authorities.

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!

BTW, interest is not 8% a day, it is 8% per annum, calculated on a daily basis as simple interest. In other words they will ask for 1p a day interest. At that rate it will take them 500 years to rack up enough interest to seek a lien on your property
