Hi, I just wanted some advice please.

My husband passed away 2 months ago. He had an old santander card which was taken over by capquest.

I wrote and told them what had happened and sent a copy of the death certificate.

I received a letter from capquest today addressed to my dead husband saying they are sorry for the delay and are waiting for santander to get back to them and they will contact him soon.

I am so angry and upset I just want to know who I can complain to. I am going to write to capquest and send the original letter to santander and I also though the fca?

Just wanted to see if there was anyone else I should write to or if anyone has had anything similar happen.

It's been a struggle to come to terms with my husband's death, it was sudden and completely unexpected.

I know dca's are the lowest but this has upset me so much.

Thanks

H

Firstly, please accept my condolences. No death is easy to deal with, and then to get a letter like this just makes it harder.

 

I would send the letter back, write on the envelope it came in Mr X now deceased. this happened to me, and as husband was buried at sea, i sent them the latitude and longditude of his burial as his forwarding address. I had notified all our creditors of his passing with a copy of his death certificate; one firm did not action this and kept sending me letters addressed to him, so i just sent them back with the details of his burial as a forwarding address for them.

 

Santander are the pits to deal with in this situation. they are supposed to have dedicated Bereavment Team, but if Capquest are the DCA's I would just return the letters to them. Seal the letter back up and send it back. Reporting it might be cathartic for you, but nothing will be acheived apart from a slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket if at all.

 

Santander do not have a joined up computer system so left hand does not know what right hand is doing.

 

Is the card debt SB? Of course if the debt was husband's only they could chase for repayment out of his Estate. if it is SB and old debt, it's a different game.

I can see this is upsetting. Capquest may just be chasing the debt for Santander, so i would suggest you send a formal complaint to Santander head office addressed to their Chief Executive.

 

If the card was in his sole name, there is not much that Capquest or Santander can do about this debt. Perhaps a complaint might lead to Santander just writing it off.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the replies. It was in his name only and he was paying a token amount each month. My original letter told them there was basically no money/estate left by him.

I will send a formal complaint to the head office with a copy of the original letter. If nothing else at least I will feel as though I'm doing something.

Thanks again

slightly retitled

moved to Santander forum and tweeted to them too

 

 

disgusting!!

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...

Yes :) Its been tweeted for you.

 

If i may add, I'm so sorry for your loss. Its very sad when we lose one so close.

Technically any sole debts owed by him would normally die with the estate etc (Be paid out of what's left - If there isnt anything left after funeral costs etc - Then you cant be expected to cover them)

 

We did once have a case with Santander who dealt with Phillips Cohen and co. They were rapidly sent packing.

 

We could do with some help from you.

Email to Helen Ashton sent back as address not found. After looking around I'm wondering if the CEO of arrow global would be the one to write to as they own capquest??. Will look into it a bit more and send tomorrow

Hi, received a response from santander who are investigating.

Apparently arrows ceo is Lee Rochford. Can't seem to find contact details so will email capquest and probably send a letter to arrow.

Thanks for your help everyone
