    • claim letter sent as an email with signed PDF attached. Now waiting for a response....
    • Look at some respected Viral epidemiologists working on this new virus on Twitter versus the crazy unverified reports of people 'dropping like flies'. Plenty of conspiracy theories from people trying to sell books too.   It's widely thought that some of the increase in cases is due to not having tests available at the beginning, and that there are large numbers of people who had mild symptoms, that never got detected.  Therefore it's likely that the mortality is much lower than thought. Also think about how many people are lining up in hospitals who might only have a cold but are terrified from all the panic.   However all are urging caution, that much more will be revealed over the coming weeks as the infections accelerate.   It is terrifying to see a city on lockdown, but also worth understanding even a 0.5% fatality rate in China is 10's of millions of people. That's why they are acting like it's a Hollywood disaster movie.    
    • Hello, can anyone help please?   As part of new City regulators affordability rules I'm about to have my barclaycard (£6000 balance) taken away from me as I'm only meeting the monthly payments and never clearing down the balance. Barclaycard wrote to me and asked for £750 a month which is way out of reach on my income.    Having been around this site for many years I'm very reluctant to speak to them, does anyone have any advice on how I should proceed here? This card is around 5yrs old and I'm committed to paying off the debt. Stopping the interest and agreeing a payment plan would suit me but will they go for it? Should I let it default and just deal with the debt agency?    Any advice would be most welcome.   many thanks
    • Thanks for the revision.   The other odd thing is that the recorded delivery letter I sent to the alleged recipient has never been signed for -  the tracking simply states 'we've got your item' although it was sent 1st class on Wed 22nd - it's now the 28th.  So I can only conclude that it was refused 
    • Thank you for all your help and advice, I do appreciate it.   I think really I just need to understand why, after going to all the effort of obtaining a warrant, Spark or Marston's wouldn't do a quick check on the electoral register to see who lives here.  If not there seems the potential for them to be breaking into homes without the correct information all the time.  If there were a debt from another previous tenant that I am unaware of then using that logic they could obtain another warrant and enter again could they not?   This has left me very upset and shaken and unfortunately echoes the same feelings as being burgled a few years ago.  I really hate the thought of someone I don't know having been in my home when I'm not here.   I'll just follow the complaint procedures with the energy companies and see where I get to and try not to shout at Spark when I open the accounts to clear the balance.  The balance I am talking about clearing is mine as Spark tell me they've been supplying the property since November, not either of my preferred suppliers so I have no choice but to give them money.  I really don't feel like giving them anything under the circumstances but I'm certainly not going to do anything to make the situation worse!

Hi dx100Uk, I have been following the advice in this forum as I am on the same boat.

But something very strange happened in DCA email.

I have sent you an email in your Inbox with the details.

I will be ever so grateful.



I have been following this forum for a long time.

Like many I have same issue with few banks in UAE since 2015.

I had contact from CW and IDR

- I have always told them when I find employment I will contact banks directly to settle my issue.


question for dx100uk (or anyone else with knowledge)


I receive a chaser (mainly from IDR) every few month which I respond to politely stating my situation.


However, last week I received a email reply ---

" We will try to hold your account . But Please be aware the bank may withdraw the case from us and pursue legal action as they have questioned why payment was not made from the capital you received from the transfer of property on (**/**/ 20**)"


This got me really worried as to how they have access to all these details of my account.

I mean even the exact date of a payment (though a small about) but still this a information from 2 years ago.


This has got me quite worried and I would like to respond to them properly without creating further problems.

Hi Dx100uk, in response to above why i replied -


2 reasons mainly.

a) I was worried (still am worried) 2 years ago when I just left.

b) I didn't come across your forum.

They also sent letters.

I understand your point and perhaps you are right they cant do nowt!


However, how did they suddenly gained information about my account with exact date of a transaction on a property transfer, as I stated above.

Are they able to have access to my accounts?

Are you able to perhaps give us your view.

thanks again


Hi sorry - just answering your Q

is all this rubbish coming by email?


They sent me email and letters/ I chose to respond via email as I was really not sure what to do at that point (2 years back).
