Knightsbridge/CreditFix IVA - treated me very badly - thinking of BK now - help

Recommended Posts

theres no debt there that requires you to go BK.

aw you really appear to have had terrible advice

you really should have kept us upto date last year

seems like all of it even the repo could have been avoided.

 

there is seriously nothing anyone that owns any of those debts can actually do to you esp the old util bills

and some spoofing PPI reclaim company!!

 

oh and name and shame please!!

It is becoming evident now that we really have had appalling advice and paid £700 for the pleasure.

I'm on a mission now to bring this fraudster down, stop him from preying on vulnerable people in the future.

Could name and shame him also but would have to be in a private msg.....for now at least.

 

We've had a few creditors contact since our IVA failed in December, but nowhere near all.

And even some of the larger debts haven't been in contact yet.

 

The PPI claim company was.....wait for it...….Claims Advisory Group!

They did negotiate a claim of about £3k from one of our previous accounts BUT the claim was never paid out

(even though we were in the IVA at the time, we got statements from them that showed they had never received the payment).

 

Do we just deal with every letter/debt as it comes along, try to do f&f settlements,

would that work for the newly acquired mortgage shortfall too,

because it hasn't been 'sold on' yet,

would they still accept less?

 

Many of the creditors don't have our new address,

the correspondence we have been receiving has come through redirected mail.

We wouldn't want them tracking us down and calling at our new address.

 

Thanks

doesn't matter if they do 

a DCA are NOT BAILIFFS!!

wise up!

 

now are all your debt still with the original lenders or have they ben sold on to fleecing powerless DCA's

I wouldnt really worry about any of them.

VERY little they can do

and even if they try for a CCJ, you've no assets anyway.

 

don't hide

its the worst thing you can do.

get on voters

look at your credit file

and WRITE to the owners of any debt that shows and or any other debt that doesn't show that you last paid within 6yrs with your correct address

that's all you've got to do

 

then you PROTECT against backdoor CCJ's you cant defend or know about.

don't 100% believe post redirect guarantees you getting anything with a court stamp on it..it DOESNT we've seen this time and time again.

 

ps not sure if its here already. but roughly when did you stop payments?

and are any of your debts on CRA files defaulted

if so whats the date.

maybe expand your list a wee bit with more info?

I can only echo the above advice from experience, all you need to do is keep creditors informed in writing of your current address. 

 

Forget F&F payments, you will be wasting your money, forget bankrupcy, do not talk to anyone on the phone, everything in writing.

 

Your priority now is to pay rent, council tax, heat , food and transport. Do not pay any of your creditors!

Thanks for the replies.

 

So don't part with any money? Not even token payments? What will happen if we just don't pay?

 

I appreciate what Dx said about DCA's not having power like Bailiffs (when wpuld Bailiffs get involved?) BUT for me it's like saying would I rather be bitten by a crocodile or a dog...a bites a bite...don't want a visit from either. ..🙁

 

A list below of who has the debt;

 

Meriden Investments Ltd-PPI claim fee working for Claims Advisory Group and have chased since IVA failed.

 

Arrow global have the MBNA cc debt and have been in contact since IVA failed.

 

Eversheds Sutherland have one of the smaller cc debts

 

All the capital one accounts (x4) are still with Capital One-they've written the most since IVA failed 

 

PRA Group have 2 catalogue debts and the barclaycard cc-these have stated a f&f settlement would be considered on the catalogue debts. 

 

LCS have the Coop energy debt and currently have me on a 30 days hold on 'action'

 

The Mortgage shortfall-the letter came from a solicitor acting on their behalf and stated I should contact them to arrange payment

 

We stopped paying the IVA in June last year and this failed in December-no payments made since.

 

I can't see any defaults on my credit file on clearscore.

 

Thanks

Lyndsey

Really sorry and I say this with the greatest respect but you just haven't listened to anyone here, nobody is going to come and visit you. You are a million miles from there right now. 

 

Everybody can be safely ignored, (however if your Tax Credits Over payment  and council tax are still in arrears this will need to be addressed at some point.). However, every debt with a DCA, just forget about it, aside from letting them know your current address.

 

All token payments that you make are simply restarting the 6 year statute barred clock, that is why you should not make them.  The DCA's can send letters all they want but it doesn't change the fact that they have zero legal powers.

 

Why won't you listen, I have been in far more debt to the same people as you, I listened to the advice on this site and didn't pay one penny, now am nearly in the clear.

Again, thanks for the replies.

 

A little harsh if I'm being honest and not really what I need right now when I'm suffering from anxiety and depression.

Yes you've all been there and come out of the other side BUT it feels very against the grain for me to just ignore them and pls don't forget I come from having a shed load of bad advice...it's not always easy to see the right thing to do at the time

 

I am listening to what is being said, am grateful and will follow advice I just need to ask the questions to be clear in my mind what will happen if....etc.

 

I had VERY threatening letters and conversations  from Jacobs recovery regarding a leisure subscription..very intimidating and they stated that they would visit the property, that's why I mentioned about DCA visits.

Thanks

Yup, being harsh because you need it. Bad advice is coming from the people who want to take your money. Good advice is coming from people on here who just want to help.

 

DCA’s threats to send someone around is idle.

Jacobs acting as dca's IGNORE THEM as gyms don't do court so they cant be acting as bailiffs.

 

if you'd listened and engaged with us last year, even when things got worse, you'd probably still have the home too

but never mind we are where we are now and that's it.

 

so the basic rules again.

 

never ever converse on the phone or EMAIL about ANY DEBT TO ANYONE. you are under NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to do so.

writing only ..PUT THE PHONE DOWN..block and bounce any emails sent and email addresses used

 

never ever converse at your door about ANY DEBT TO ANYONE. you are under NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to do so.

tell them to leave your property and never to return else you'll call police 101.

 

WRITE to everyone...

those debts with DCA's simply state THEIR ref number and your new address THAT IS ALL

 

the debts still with the ORIGINAL CREDITORS i'd be sending this:

it will kill 2 birds

1 give them your correct address

2. puts them on the back foot. they must help you. [even if you are offering £1PCM]

 

that's it really.

when you get any deforestation through your door

come HERE with it and well advise what to do..

and I mean for ANY DEBT..ANY LETTERs

no running off to other sources please!!🤗

Ok, thanks @London1971, I have received my virtual slap!

 

And @dx100uk, I promise, I'll stick with this site now, the conflicting info received from other sources is mind boggling! 

 

@fkofilee, the Jacobs issue is resolved (I ended up calling the automated line and paying it off). No, I have only checked our credit files with clearscore so I will take a look at these tonight-Equifax, Experian and..?

 

So, just to clarify-next step is writing off to everyone to change address (even if they don't appear on our credit files?)-but no offer of token payment for ones with DCAs, only to the ones still with the original creditor? So the statute barr that you spoke of @London1971 only applies to debts with DCAs?

 

Then detail any response/correspondence I get through from any creditor for advice?

 

Thanks

Yup, you really shouldn't have paid Jacobs.  That's money to feed your family or heat your home, given to someone who probably has no legal right to enforce the debt.  

 

You are wasting your money by paying any of these debts, instead of worrying about these idiots sending you idle threats, you should be busy making sure that you can pay the bills that matter like rent and heating.

 

Everyone non essential can go sing for their money.

So, I've been writing the letters to all our creditors over the weekend ready to send off. But have received one this morning from Drydensfairfax, who have had the debt 'transferred' from Eversheds Sutherland.

 

The letter received just states that they know that our IVA has failed and that they seek repayment of the balance. That I should contact them within 7 days of the letter to discuss repayment.

 

How do people advised to respond/not respond?

 

Thanks

What do you mean by 'deal' with the client? Tbh I don't even know who the original creditor for this account is. They just state that it was with Eversheds now with them..Because it was in the IVA I've totally lost track of who all the original creditors were...

 

I am really trying to get my head around sorting through what letters I need to send where but I wondered..when people have said to write to the  original creditors that still own the debt and offer token payments, how long would that go on? As in, they surely won't just accept these token payments forever until the debt is cleared?

drydens are a solicitor they are not a debt owner nor a debt buyer

every letter from them must state the client that they have been employed by.

 

as for the future, you are being shown the correct way to deal with your debts.

one step at a time please.

learn how to walk first...thus getting your ducks inline..

then when they are nicely under control, we will move things forward.

 

now I have no wish to continue to support the very bad advice you've had from everywhere until you came to CAG.

with that we've got to somewhat reprogram you...

 

one of the empowering things of cag is its past history of how people dealt with like situations.

they are here word for word

not some spin from a plonker in a chair that's only interested in his cut of your money.

 

Im going to move your topic to the debt self-help forum.

if you pop up the very top here and click the debt self help bit in grey  between > and >

you'll see losts of other peoples experiences to read

the more you read the stronger we become

The most important priority is to send off your new address to each and every one who is chasing you.  A simple letter will do, with your name and account number.  Remember to get free proof of posting at the Post Office.

 

Once you have done this we can deal with each one separately.  For example I know exactly what to do with old council tax bills and Tax Credit over payments, having been 5k and 12k in debt to them respectively in the past. There is so much knowledge and experience on here that can help you, and hopefully show you that you really don't have anything to worry about.

I've looked at our credit files today on Equifax and checkmyfile.

I would say not even half of the debts appear on there.

And one or two that were in our IVA appear as 'settled' like our old bank (Natwest) overdraft.

 

from what I can see on our credit reports,

we have two capital one credit cards each

-status defaulted so still with them

I have written to capital one directly and offered small token payments/month.

 

Then I have Arrow (an MBNA cc debt)

my husband has PRA (a Barclaycard cc debt)

do I write my letters to Arrow and PRA or MBNA and Barclaycard?

 

Similar to the one I mentioned the other day from Max recovery/Drydensfairfax solicitors

-I honestly cant figure out which account it corresponds to

-it doesn't appear on my list of creditors from the IVA (the creditor themselves Royal Bank of Scotland) or the amount outstanding and certainly doesn't appear on either of our credit reports,

do I leave it and see if I get anymore correspondence from them?

 

Also I'm coming to the end of a 30 hold with LCS who are handling my Coop energy debt.

I had been speaking with them on the phone (before coming on here and realising I didn't HAVE to answer their calls etc).

Do I just leave it

-ignore calls and emails and wait for a letter to come through?

 

@London1971 I do have an outstanding balance with both council tax (which I have arranged a small monthly payment plan) and tax credits-although they said they hadn't had confirmation that our IVA had failed and that they couldn't arrange any kind of repayment until they had that...

 

Thanks

the card debts with dca's you sewd a CCa request.

ignore LCS..deal with theie CLIENT co-op directly.

 

might be better to start a new thread in the utils forum for that one.

 

as for the OD debt - wait and see who writes.

same for the drydens mystery debt.

looks like you were had blind on several here,

 

don't forget to get an sar off to credit fix and the previous muppets that ran things if they still exist.

 

somewhere there is an F&F pot I bet to reclaim. too

So, I sent off 4x CCA's, 4x SAR's and 4x offer of token payment to Capital One on Wednesday.

 

Have received some correspondence from PRA Group (sending back my £1 postal orders 'as a gesture of goodwill' they don't charge the £1 fee!)

 

One of the letters is asking for some additional info (Date of birth, previous address and full name) before they can process my CCA request

 

-is this ok to send through?

 

The other two accounts with them they are happy to process-these are catalogue debts, the one they need more info for is a cc debt.

 

Thanks

 no need to send anything extra

Once someone fails 12+2 working days you stop any payments if you are/were paying

nope not for a cca request.

as long as you either quoted their ref number or the original creditors account number on the CCA request they cant request any verification.

 

they've taken you for a fool in getting payment sout of you in the past I expect and think they can fool you again.

 

no cca = no pay.

We've never paid a penny to PRA.. got transferred to them whilst in the IVA I think. 

 

Yes reference number was definitely quoted...can't remember whether theirs or Barclaycard but one or the other was quoted.

 

So, any response to them at all about it or just await something further from them?

 

Thanks
