I had a mobile contract with vodafone which I stopped paying about 2 and a half years ago due to a dispute.

I expected to see it showing as defaulted on my credit file,

but it looks like it is "up to date" and just shows the outstanding balance

 

I'm confused. Can someone help me understand what is going on ?

 

Edit: screenshot for clarity

for now yes

but they'll default it as soon as they sell it on.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

Yes, I was thinking exactly the same thing....... Have a closer look and see if you have ''any'' other markers/defaults on your CRF, most likely from Lowlifes (Lowell) who love to buy these debts.


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!

Thanks for the reply :)

 

I did call them back in March '17 and offered to settle.

 

They said at that point they couldn't take payment as it was already in the process of being sent to a 3rd party DCA. I would have thought that would all have been reflected in my credit file by now. There's no markers at all apart from the information on that screenshot. It shouldn't take that long surely...

 

I want to contact them for clarity, but I'm worried it might prompt them into action and then I'll end up with a default anyway!

 

Edit: also pretty weird that it hasn't even been registered as a late payment...

If they didn't want your money then, then they won't want your money now, I'd be firmly ignoring them, keep poking the dog and it'll bite.

Absolutely agree here. By contacting them may just spur them to investigate and maybe just slap the default on.

 

VF don't have their own in house debt collection team so in the first instance they just pass it on to a DCA whilst retaining control. Eventually they may sell the debt to a DCA (usefully Lowell) who can then chase you.

 

If, by the time the debt is sold, no default has been placed, the new owner cannot place a default. That must be done by the original creditor.

 

That is the reason I agree with the above.

Cheers folks, that's really useful information! With any luck they are as incompetent at dealing with this as they were with the original dispute :) !

they are caught in 2 minds,

if they default and dont try and collect the money they risk the debt being sb,

if they dont default then the debt beomes SB anyway.

 

What some companies ( banks esp) try and do is stretsh the SB clock by defaulting very late in the day and claim they were trying to resolve the issue so they hadnt defaulted to save you the embarrassment etc. Cobblers though, they do it to abuse the law.

Nope dx, I've stayed at the same address for 7+ years.

 

I just checked with clearscore,

the report shows a search performed by "TDX Group (for Vodafone)" In February 2016,

which is around the time i would have went 120+ overdue & into default territory.

 

I have never received any contact from them or Vodafone since 2015 though

(except when I called vf last year and got a very cryptic response after being passed from dept. to dept.

and wasting the better part of a couple hours on the phone, but that's by-the-by).

 

I'd be happy to clear it to avoid a potential default.

But as it's not showing for now, and contacting them might have the opposite effect,

i guess i'll just cross my fingers.

 

Hopefully, I can get my mortgage application through before my credit report turns into a pumpkin!

 

I'll keep y'all posted if it develops any further... (still boggling my mind that it's not even showing as a late payment)
