Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

 

Long story short,

brain surgery in Feb 2015.

 

Got the all clear April 2016.

100% rehabilitation can take 3>5 years.

My doctors advice re exercise keep trying every few months.

Had a good relationship with the gym as had been a member for years prior to being ill.

 

2 x failed attempts (on a month by month contract)

 

Then

In July 2016 (2 months after all clear) went in to see about joining again.

They had a great joining offer for 12 months contract.

 

I talked at great length with the young girl 'Shona' who assured me if I did need to cancel, wouldn't be a problem.

a low exercise regime commenced.

 

Improvement was slow and steady.

But tbh I was not happy with the cleanliness of the gym and my headaches started to come back.

 

Admitted defeat in May of this year and cancelled the d/d.

In truth I was too embarrassed to go in and cancel the gym yet again.

 

As a result I have been hounded by phonecalls from Arc.

I haven't had anything in writing from them but they keep leaving messages on my home phone, mobile and texting me demanding I call them.

 

What should my first move be?

Go to the gym, I should Imagine it's out of their hands now.

 

Would be interested to hear your thoughts. Many thanks Chrissie k

Arc are a powerless CCA

And are not bailiffs

 

Who's the gym company?

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...

Not sure who owns them

But you owe 1 MTV following you stopping the DD I would expect

 

Use the slick132 letter herd in many threads

Offer that to the admin company but not their penalty charges

 

Go read a few threads too

Harassment is a criminal offence, log all of their calls/texts keep a diary of their harassment.

 

Complain to the gym about the harassment their chosen third party is committing, remind them that should it be necessary to take legal action against them for harassment, that they will be solely liable...

 

Any texts you receive from ARC can be 'forwarded' to 7726 (spam) on your handset keypad.

 

Can you block their number on your landline? You can always use your network providers ''malicious calls'' procedure.

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!

Hi Chrissie and welcome to CAG

 

Which branch of this gym were you a member of.

 

In fairness, I'm not surprised ARC are chasing you - you simply cancelled the DD without notice and without explanation.

 

We could use some more info please :-

 

1. What date was the last DD paid to the gym.

 

2. When did you cancel the DD mandate.

 

3. Did the gym or ARC contact you questioning the DD being cancelled and, if so, when.

 

We can then help you stop ARC harassing you with calls, texts, emails, etc.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you
