same thing - idrww letter phishing for info arrived this morning.

 

i skipped dubai in may 2011 after i got canned by employer (stitched up due to health probs)

 

1. its statute barred so i dont know what they hope to gain.

2. they cant extradite me

3. cant pay/wont pay cos i cant work anymore and am registered disabled for the last 6+ yr now

 

i did this dance with these idiots 4 yrs ago with a diff DCA - they sent me an incomes and expenditure form after whivh i offered them the princely sum of £1 per month LOL

 

obviously some new idiot in the UAE office is trying again

 

ok - will tell them stat barred and eff off

 

idiots

 

the day i set foot in that vile country again will be when people are having snowball fights in hell so no worries

 

btw - it's a car loan and CCard

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

i made SB letter just now in case i need it, but will just ignore for now

 

fyi - when the other DCA contacted me 4 yrs ago they never took me up on the payment or replied - so i never paid anything

if that's the case then np

 

will do the income form etc and give em £1 a month or something

 

was a diff company acting on behalf 4 yrs ago tho - so not sure if this one knows its not SB

 

UAE banks are notoriously bad re communicating with people and partners so lets see

 

either way its cool

 

i never paid anything tho - i just sent back the form and the guy wrote a letter saying he didnt think it worth pursuing

 

all i did was send the income form and the uk brief wrote back saying he would leave it for 3 years or so

 

maybe they are trying again to see if anything has changed re circumstances?

 

dont know, but if so they will be disappointed because circumstances are the same

pers id leave it.

 

they are aware of your correct address I gather

let them phish but don't ignore a PAP letter of claim if one comes

I doubt they'll have any record of that 'letter' either

will do mate

 

what they sent me to phish just had the RAKBANK ID and no further info apart that they were acting 'on behalf' nothing more; there was no claim or anything else

 

will just leave it

 

worst case scenario is £1 a month or so since nothing has changed so np

 

thanks!

It is unlikey they have any locus in the matter so cant do anything other than send you scary letters.

Just dont do anything is the best option, not even respod to letters like this.

If they try their luck at court they will have some pretty high hurdles to clear to get as far as a judgement.

 

As a general point most people trip themselves up by trying to resolve the problem when it isnt actually a problem.

i could send you a letter saying you owe me £3 million quid and make all sorts of threats of what will happen if you dont pay.

 

If you offer me a fiver to go away that effectively means you admit the debt is real and i am halfway there to screwing you for a lot more.

say nothing and without any proof I cant progress any claim.

 

Reading things so you understand every word is vital as they are often written in such a manner so to make you think they mean something they dont actually say

yeah - true; thanks for that

 

I mean even when the other guy from the other firm wrote to me years ago i didnt admit anything or offer them anything; i just filled out his form and he said he wasnt bothering

 

even if they were to push it they cant get blood out of a stone or an admission and they cant send me to the UAE

 

so, sod em, they will be ignored

Don't worry about them Nagus they are only interested if they think you have assets they can take from you.

 

I told them I don't have any assets ( mortgage with negative equity)' but they've written to me to say they know I have 50 per cent in a property

They think they're on to a winner!

But no money there.

They may tell you they are solicitors but they are just a dca.

 

Ignore them.

dont ever correspond with them.

:-):-):whoo:

 

my employer was engaged in stealing network kit from a govt warehouse that was allocated to a project i was running.

He was using it to complete projects for his own business he was running on the side with some of his friends

 

when it came out, he fired me (using my health issues as a cover) then he tried to stitch me up for it.

 

with no work and expiring visa i ran before the passport block went in on the monday morning - was tipped off by a friend.

 

boss was a lebanese guy - him and 4 other leb managers were in on it.

 

nasty people, and altho i am now poor and career is over due to illness am glad i left, even tho i lost pretty much everything.

 

Nasty place - VERY corrupt.

 

tbh i think i dodged a bullet, it's good to be free.:-)

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

suffice to say i have ZERO desire to ever visit/transit a GCC country again - ever.

they are still phishing

 

now they have mentioned who its owed to - RAKBANK - and the amount.

 

but its still same old, same old 'write to us, contact us, you have 7 days...blah, blah, blah'

 

have had a letter in jan and another last week.

 

'you could go to court - blah, blah - contact us and fill in an income and expenditures form'.

 

dont think this is a PAP - looks like its same as others.

 

ignoring as per recommendation.

 

oh - and they mentioned payment is to them?

 

in yr dreams

 

copy of most recent one fyi

dam - I keep doing that; was up all night with a flu-ridden 6yr old, my bad

 

amended, and still ignoring.

 

Can easily see how someone who doesnt do any research would be intimidated/fooled into responding though; v sneaky and underhand of them

did the bank get a judgement againt you in the UAE? if not then they cnat apply for an order in a UK court. If they did then they have a hell of a lot of hoops to jump through and are still likely to fail as there is no bilateral agreemetn and they ahve to ask the Eu nicely to be allowed to play and the EU currently says no.

I’ve had the same letter twice for different banks. Exactly my reply that unless they purchase the debt I will not be communicating with them or CWD which is also Owned by Mr Coyle and his muppets
