Hi, I've not been on this site for a while!. Does anyone have any experience with the PRA Group?

 

I have a balance of £1297.80 from an old overdraft with Halifax/Lloyds TSB.

The original default notice from the Halifax was 17/8/2011.

 

I have been paying the PRA Group £5 per month as a token payment.

PAR Group have now offered a measly 10% discount in full and final settlement.

 

I've recently come to an agreement with another DCA and that was nearly 50% discounted .

In the past I have offered to pay 30% of the debt to PRA Group but they have declined.

 

The debt has been passed from pillar to post so they probably have paid peanuts for it.

 

Just wondered if anyone can offer any suggestions as to how to tackle them?


Halifax: WON - Following complaint to FOS I have been offered a refund of all interest and charges since entering DMP!:D

Co-op: admitted no CCA! Account now passed onto Fredrickson International.

Fredrickson International: referred them back to the Co-op as no CCA available!!!

Ignore them and stop your £5 pm...your payments are simply stopping the Statute of Limitations on a debt that most probably consists of mainly penalty/interest charges...and not your actual overdraft.

Oh, I had no idea. So if I stop paying DCAs, they can't do anything?

 

Have I understood that correctly?

 

Other debts are relating to credit cards and I have been making token payments to them too!

(Capital One and Moorcroft).

 

The debts are all approximately 6 years old.

Depends on the DCA...we know which will and wont issue a court claim....at the moment your in no mans land paying on the drip to DCAs forever....and they may still issue a court claim even if you continue to pay....by stopping payment and waiting to see if they do issue a claim... will bring it to a halt...and even if they did and you lost...at least your payments from there on will be on a Legal footing.

@dx100uk - Yes, that's correct.

 

Moorcroft Debt Recovery = Egg credit card

 

PRA Group = Halifax overdraft

 

Capital One (credit card) = no DCA

 

Am I within my rights to withhold payments to all 3 (even though Capital One isn't a DCA)? If so, how would I respond when they ask what my reason is for the stopping payments?

 

Re the Egg debt - this was bought by Credit Solutions Ltd (I can't find a notice of assignment in my records), then passed to Moorcroft Debt Recovery (I can't find a notice of assignment for them either)!

 

In addition, they have never sent me any annual statements

well forge the PRA debt now that's dead..

 

CSL don't buy debts neither do Moorcroft.

 

so if Moorcroft state their client is EGG

 

then you've

cap1

and

Egg

to deal with directly.

 

as they are only £1/£5 respectively i'd be paying that direct to the OC

never a DCA.

 

as long as they will freeze charges and interest.

letter is in the debt collection section of our library
