I wonder if any one can give me any advice!


I was enrolled into university September 2015 and was at university for around a week before I was involved in a serious car accident.

The accident resulted in me having to withdraw from the course.


The university provided absolutely no support to help me stay on the course as I was so reluctant to leave.


I was told I had to pay £195 to them for 'Tuition fees' even though the first week I was there I didn't learn a thing!


I've been paying £10 a month to STA International to clear this debt and have been for the last 6 months.


Yesterday I got a letter from STA asking me to fill out a questionnaire where they're asking for all my financial details including my partners!

i.e my salary and mortgage payments, car finance, gas & electric out goings.


This is clearly an attempt from them to look at my finances and demand higher monthly payments from me.


I contacted a STA adviser today who told me I agreed to the questionnaire when I set up the direct debit (this was over the phone),

they have never had me sign anything to tie me into any sort of agreement!


I told them I am not providing this information but will continue to pay my £10 a month until the debt is cleared.


The adviser responded telling me they will phone, email and send letters until I send them this information back.


My question is,

do I have to respond with what they're asking for?

will they be able to take legal action?


I'm assuming not since I am paying them however I have never had any debt before and I am worried!

Stop paying them!!


You've been had


Sta are a DCA

They have absolutely no legal powers whatsoever

And are not bailiffs


If if you do owe anything

Deal and pay the uni direct


I would suspect none of your payments have gone off the debt to the uni

And they'll know nothing about them when you ring up


You totally ignore the dca from now on

The insurers should have sorted out any debt to the uni but that would mean that you should have told them and the uni in the first place.
