Middle East Debt being chased by CWD

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to the forum but am also getting letters from idrww. What is the latest update with the above? I apparently owe money to a UAE bank dating back to 2010 and this is the first contact I have received on this debt!

Hi firstly I apologise for co I got in on someone else's thread but I am unable to start my own.

 

I have been contacted by CWD who state I owe £60k, I have 30 days to respond/pay up in full.I

 

I own a house with equity and am concerned they will try to make me bankrupt thus losing my house.

 

I left the UAE in 2011 and was originally contacted by IDRWW last month

 

. I am finding it hard to find a solicitor who deals with such things.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

I am tempted to contact the bank directly and come up with a settle meant for the original amount which was around £6000.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Did you not read the thread you posted on at all??

 

You don't have 30 days to pay anyone

And you don't need to do anything

You don't need a solicitor either

 

It's a scary DC A letter of

They are not bailiff and are totally powerless

Thank you for your reply, I have read loads of threads and looked at different websites about them.

 

I have read they have gone to court here in the UK.

 

I appreciate it is probably scare mongering but I have equity in the house and a young family so need to make sure I am 100% safe

 

. Is it better to ignore or ask for everything?

 

They have sent me my cc agreement and cc statements too. Cheers

put up jobs[employees, relatives of, debtors getting backhanders afterwards] to make money for that certain website that sc@ms people out of £1000's in fees to defend against something that's never going to happen

Just make sure you open all letters received and see what is enclosed.

If any creditor takes it to court, you will receive the claim directly from the court.

It is always up to the creditor to take you to court and just because a DCA or DCA solicitor threatens this, does not mean it will happen.

 

If a creditor wants to issue a court claim, they ( or their Solicitors) have to send a letter headed letter before claim and in the letter it will say they will issue a court.

 

At this point, you reply asking for copies of all documents in English e.g copy of original financial agreement in your name bearing your signature/date, default notice, copies of finance statements, copies of any foreign courts judgement.

 

And if there are reasons of dispute, you include these

You never admit owing anything in such letters.

you just ask for information.

At the moment they have sent me the standard cwd letter, financial statements of the credit cards and an information sheet. Cheers

IF and that is a big IF they did take you to court the it would have to be determined under what law was used for drawing up the original agreements and if it wasnt UK law then the chances of any of the debt being enforceable are small

 

You say you originally owed £6k and that has been bumped to £60k. well, that will take some explaining wont it?

Shame it isnt under Italian law where any claim for interest or silly costs is automatically blown out of the water for ursury

yeah was £6k and now 60k with interest!

 

! My issue is that I have a large amount of equity in my property which I obviously don’t want to lose.

 

I appreciate I should be safe but always at the back of your mind.

 

And you are correct if it went as far as court how can they stand there and justify another £54k in interest!!

Makes sense, is there a way CWD could take you to a court in UK for a debt that was originally from UAE? Have been reading loads and getting mixed stories

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
