Intrum UK Finance - tesco credit card

Recommended Posts

Morning all

 

I unfortunately defaulted on a Tesco Credit Card in 2011. I continued to pay Tesco a small amount each month and the Default came off my Credit Report after the six year period in 2017.

 

Yesterday I received a letter from Tesco advising they had sold the debt to Intrum Finance. Oddly enough it was in the same envelope as the letter from Intrum advising they now had ownership of the debt and in one paragraph they said "the Credit Reference Agencies will soon update their records to say you owe money to us, not Tesco Personal Finance".

 

As it is over six years since the Default with Tesco does the fact that they have bought the debt now mean there will be a further Default on my Credit Report lodged by them?

No it should not appear on your CRA,the 6 year period is up.However keep a close eye on your CRA Intrum would not be the first to try and register a new default.

For info LINK try this quite often

If they did try to register it as a new Default how would I go about getting the Default removed? It is somewhat worrying that this is even possible.

you would query it , should be a button to dispute on the entry, they probably just sent standard template one fit all type, so just keep an eye on entries probably not see it from now on, how are you going to deal with the DCA?

 

Both same envelope is standard procedure these days and accepted thru authorisation between companies so no argument there

Thanks for replies so far. Letter from Tesco says they have assigned it to Intrum.

 

I have been paying Tesco a small amount each month so will continue to pay Intrum the same. Their letter was more advisory than anything else. It gave their bank account details - I usually paid Tesco by electronic transfer each month.

 

Why would I need to send a CCA Request - to see if they have bought the debt or are just acting on behalf of Tesco you mean?

I am sure you have covered this,did you have PPI with the account.

CCA will throw up any ???? with the account, for example have they all the correct documentation for starters.Opinions vary on this but I would send the CCA request to Intrum,they will probably reply they will have to go back to Tesco,they have a time limitation to reply often referred to as 12+2 days to reply

When did you take out the card, that might have a bearing on how you deal with this if it was before 2007.

Hope its ok to jump in here. I have had the same letter. Checked my noddle and saw that Intrum had done a search.

 

My card was taken out between 1999-2001 i think. It was defaulted in 2004.

 

Brassnecked, whats the difference if it was taken out before 2007 ?.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
