i didnt even know this place existed till today and i came here for another reason a hour later of reading, i am hoping ppl can give me some advice ..

 

i owe a debit which has been bought by lowell now they have been calling of and off for weeks

but i have ignored the phone and i had had several letters, wanting payment

 

the amount i owe is £3679 its a littlewoods credit card debt that i fell behind on and finally defaulted through no income.

 

now the thing is it doesnt say littlewoods on the lowell letters it says barclaycard who do own littlewoods card..

but i was told numerous times by barclaycard that they was two diff companies and also by mercers debt agency who was originally dealing with the debt on behalf of littlewoods,

that it wasnt a barclaycard and barclays was just the parent company ..

 

i dont kniow what to do about this as at present

 

i claim contribution JSA and in a 20 days time wont even have that so my personal income will be nil..

the littlewoods debt is mine not my wifes and as such she wont be paying it.

 

i was making token payments now and then to mercers

they said it wasnt a official payment plan as i was paying 5-10 per month but would stop interest etc on the account

then they informed me that the 7 month limit had been reached which i didnt know about

and as no official payment plan was in place it would be sent back to littlewoods for a formal demand which littlewoods did..

and then sold the debt to lowells

 

i assume like i said been told littlewoods isnt barclaycard but is owned by barclays and lowell say the debt is for barclaycard

 

 

sorry if that is as confusing as hell its been a nightmare for months

just trying to ignore it as is no way i can pay

and if i am declared bankrupt i would lose my license to work i have been told (sia license)

OK please calm down, there is absolutely nothing to worry about, they won't kill you or put you in Jail for a poxy CC debt.

 

Barclaycard and Mercers ARE the same company.

The very very maximum, in your circumstances, that you will ever have to pay is £1 a month.

 

When did you take this agreement out?

When was the last time you paid them anything for it?

Have you checked your credit file? Is it registered? If so who with?

 

Relax, calm down, sweet fanny adams is going to happen overnight, keep EVERYTHING in writing, never EVER talk to any of these clowns over the phone, if they ring you, laugh and hang up.


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!

while i sort out the credit history i wanted to as i have 3 credit cards now in default all cards are now stopped with barclaycard

 

..littlewoods being one of them but all have incured alot late payment and default fees where the interest forced me over my credit limit was more or less every month

 

i would get i think £12 charge for being late as i didnt pay it or when i was on agreed plan the two months

u have to pay the fees they say while u wait for ur plan to kick in and stop the interest.

 

.feels like one last way screw you a bit more when you cant pay.

 

and the £ 12 or so fee from going over can they be claimed back off the debts?

 

they prob arise for hundreds on each card

Think you need some proper debt advice to see what options you have. I think you need to do this now, as when the JSA stops, you will then have to see what other help is available.

 

Suggest that you book an urgent appointment with Citizens Advice. They can look into the debt issues and benefits.


We could do with some help from you.

Good advice to reclaim charges but please keep all correspondence...tempting as it may be to stick it in a firework and send it back to whence it came.

Once Contribution based JSA ceases, you're entitled to Income based JSA at £65 per week (basic) plus help with rent, council tax, etc. if you qualify.

 

They may get you to go in to fill forms out again at the DWP/Job Centre, but you'd be entitled to it if you've been on contri-based immediately prior.

 

Hope that heps.

found a letter from lowell cant say its the last i have as like i said i have been ignoring them its dated 23rd jan 2012

 

and says the following

 

we can still help you get your account in order.

we have written to you several times now about the money you owe us,but you have not paid or set up a payment plan.we will be able to help you,however you must call us straightaway.

 

WHAT YOU COULD FACE IF WE DONT HEAR FROM YOU

we are willing to do all we can to help you clear your balance but if you do not pay or put a plan in place after this letter we will pass your account on to red debt collection services. red debt collection services are part of lowell financial LTD and specialise in assessing customers financial circumstances. they do this by obtaining a copy of your credit file from a credit reference agency and then using the information within it to dertermine what options are available to us to recover what you owe an example could be to use litigation. if legal action is taken against you .you could end up in court having to pay not only what you owe. but legal costs and interest aswell.

Lowell have bought one of my debts on 03/11/2009 i get letters still but I still have all my fingers and toes - as advised don't worry and try to use your local cab - they are really focussed on you and your circumstances. Lowell and their "legal" team will try and squeeze you for the money but just remember they chancing their arm.

Have you sent off a CCA request ?

 

If they are referring to this as a Barclaycard, don't tell them what it should be. Ask for a copy of the Credit card they are referring to.

 

You haven't said when you took this out, but barcaycard are one of the worst for retaining agreements.

to be honest too, i'd await the cra result before posting any thing off.

 

it will matter not if the cca is en or un-en if the debt is sb'ed

 

though its only a quid , i often wonder if its worth alerting them you could be a mug or not at this stage.

If payments have been made recently, I didn't think the debt could be statute barred.
