    • A consent order is an agreement from the creditor to set aside, in this case if you agree a repayment plan. It also reduces the cost of the set-aside to £100 rather than £255.

    • Hi, I received the parking ticket in the post a couple of weeks after I was in the car park at Gillingham ice bowl. I’d been waiting for my grandson to come out. I stayed in the car and because I didn’t know how long he was going to be it didn’t occur to me to pay for parking. I told them that when I got the fine. After that I ignored them because I was indignant about being fined. Eventually they stopped although they did change to a different company. I haven’t heard from them for over six months and out of the blue I get this letter.  I’ve paid for some legal advice which was and wasn’t helpful.

    • I guess we can expect ‘clarification’ from the PM tonight while the sky fills with flying pigs. My best guess on further measures: You can cross parish boundaries as long as you hop on one foot whilst humming happy birthday  Cars can move between different boroughs with differing restrictions as long as the combined ages of the occupants total no more than 90 years If your journey involves crossing county boundaries you need to download a government approved eye test chart and use this as your permit to travel.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi,

 

I am negotiating with creditors with regards to CC debt. I offered them a Full n Final, and they said they would only accept if they could see 6 months bank statements and credit card statements of other debts.

 

How should I respond to this?

first thing I would see is whether the debts can be enforceable ,

also that does seem to be excessive

 

I was not asked to send that amount of paperwork when I was negotiating .

so far I am down to 3 creditors out of 7 and think it will soon be down to 1 or 2 since only one creditor came out and said we do not accept f & F all well and good at the moment they are getting £1 a week which will go on as long as I'm not in work but they have frozen interest

without prying too much is there a reason why you need to make F & F offers . mine was that there is a very good chance that my company would make me redundent due to ill health (still under that )

 

So anyhow I sat down with the citizens advice burea and got a budget all sorted first this showed my available money for my unsecured debts then I wrote to each one and said due to illness etc I could be made redundant but a relative has agreed to lend me the money for f& F offers and I offered them 50% or a pro rata payment per week that as soon as my income was reduced it went down to £1 a week (Got paid weekly). so far I have saved around £4k off the credit cards and if another one does will be another 2.5k

Simple - Not entitled to see your bank statements. They are private information and not to be used by a DCA for leverage.

You need to really check if they are enforceable etc...

well first off all you have to see hoe much spare money you have left to pay your creditors . have you got a citizens advice near you or you can use the national debthelpline website they have a good I & E sheet that will show you how much money you have left .

 

Most important things are rent/mortgage council tax utilities etc .then when you write the letter you send them a copt of the sheet for creditors and they can do the maths they can have say 50% debt paid now and write the rest off or have to wait years for it to be paid off .

 

Also a important thing is for them to surpress all interest and charges while you negotiate and finally stay off the phone keep everything in writing

 

are any off your creditors linked the your bank ie you have hsbc account and also have a hsbc credit card because they can offset against your credit card . if you do you need to open a parachute account not connected to any of your creditors and get everything paid into that.

any names of these 'solicitors' ? Debt collection agencies always have some dodgy law firm attached to them.

at what stage/type are the debts; defaulted, arrangement, poss statute bar, etc

as has been posted, maybe check enforceability first.

imo, if a matter has already been defaulted, or there is a poss bar/unenforceability, i wldn't be in a rush to settle yet.

depends on ones own circs of course :)

IMO

list your debts

who owns the debt now

who the OC was

type of credit

how much

when you took it out

are all these on your credit file?

are they deafulted

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

True. Yet the creditor may want to ensure the ‘current position’ hasn’t been artificially engineered to make them accept a F&F that they otherwise wouldn’t. They also have no obligation to accept a F&F, and the OP may want to cooperate over and above the “minimum they are obliged to”, to have more chance of a F&F being accepted.

 

You need to really check if they are enforceable etc...

 

Absolutely. The OP needs to establish the position accurately before considering a F&F offer.
