    • I'm on happy pills (anti depressants) but they aren't cutting the mustard anymore and I do need to see my GP soon to see if he can help in anyway. With regards to gambling it's so complicated; through my life I have made money (as well as having had some jobs)  being a "professional gambler" (gambling where the odds are in your favour - think card counting for example, fruit machines years ago for a long time.... Other things.) But I've also been totally compulsive at the same time. It;'s so entrenched in my psyche that it's hard to imagine just giving it up totally. I also have drug issues that have plagued me and it's a shame because I am fairly intelligent and could have been successful in life in theory but mainly due to those two things (and not really having any drive, ambition, whatever... I could go on and on but this isn't a therapy forum :P) I've not managed to. I'm 36 by the way. Cheers
    • Oh I just remembered I have a long defaulted account with Halifax balance approx £3700 I believe (from around 2015) but they aren't chasing me for it or anything. It was actually over £5000 but they refunded me a load of unfair charges (their words)  This does however push me over the £20,000 limit for a DRO I think?  
    • Hi.   I think you've made a good start by setting out in writing what you need to deal with. People should be along later to advise on how to deal with your creditors.   For the mental side of things, have you talked to your GP about getting some help with what's getting you down? Or support with the gambling issues?   HB
    • Hi people.   So I've managed to get myself into a sorry state financially. I'm insanely depressed which I guess is common for many. I don't think all of it comes down to the financial stuff but it is really crushing me now.   Facts: A lot of debt has been due to living on credit and gambling. I don't have a job. I know I should get one but I just totally despondant at the moment (due to many reasons). I don't expect any sympathy but I thought I would share this.   It's tempting to bury my head in the sand and wait for the inevitable calls from various collections departments but I want to be as proactive as possible. I think I've cancelled all direct debits so I don't get bouncing charges from the banks...   So onto the debts:   Loans livelend; £2400 was 4k 13% interest Bamboo £3000 (only just made the first payment this month) supid interest Likelyloans approx £3500 stupid interest  One payday loan for £200 I just got to cover some bills (knowing that I'd unlikely be able to pay it) - this is the only thing I haven't cancelled with the bank as they just take it from your card   Credit cards: Aqua approx. 3900 Capital one approx. 1200 Amazon approx £500 Paypal Credit Approx £1100 Overdrafts Santander £1500 Barclays £1k limit (I don't actually pay anything for this)   So all in all approximately £18,000     I also have a negative Paypal balance of £5000 but I don't believe this classes as a debt and I don't think they can do anything about this having read up on it quite a lot.   I guess my question is what is my best course of action. Should I look to do a DRO? Should I go bankrupt? (eurgh. Full disclosure I did this 15 years ago when I was 21. You think I would have learnt!) Should I write to each creditor and offer them £1 a month? Should I talk to one of the debt charities?   It is all my fault that I'm in this state but I also know that it's not the end of the world because they are all non priority debts. I probably am slightly behind on the council tax but not significantly.   I started claiming universal credit a couple of weeks ago and had my first appointment last week but managed to miss the next one due to not being able to sleep and then oversleeping and so I guess they've probably kicked me off that already and I might have to claim again.    So yeah. I take responsibility for what's happened but I don't see any way out. I've been very depressed lately due to this and other things. There is no one to "bail me out" and I probably don't need or want that anyway. Any advice appreciated          
    • Hi All,   I left the UAE 2 years ago. Have my bank clearance letter from HSBC.  I have been receiving emails from a company based in Hemel Hampstead IDRWW about money owed to the bank of RAK in the UAE which I’ve ignored as thought it was spam. I have now received a letter through the post saying the same thing (no idea how they have got my new address) that they are acting on behalf of RAK bank. I’ve never had an account with them but know how dodgy things are over there so would be nervous going back!.... Do I just ignore it or reply? It must be identity theft?  I am also nervous about travelling as I travel a lot & wouldn’t want to be arrested!!  I obviously have no intent on paying a debt that is not mine plus have no assets here anyway... Can they actually take me to court for something that isn’t mine??  Any info gratefully received.  Have spoken to citizens advice & they couldn’t help. Thankyou

MBNA-Arrow-Capquest

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I obtained a MBNA credit card in 2014, things went very wrong for us and it ended up in our IVA in 2016. My credit file states that it defaulted in Aug 2016 (when we started our IVA-however I never received a default notice?)

 

Our IVA failed in Dec 2018 and I haven't paid anything towards this debt since then.

 

Arrow Global were chasing us for a while for this debt-so I sent off a CCA to them in early May-haven't heard anything from them in response to my letter BUT got a letter from Capquest 18th May to say that they are now dealing with our account.

 

Then on 24th May I received a letter from Arrow again stating that they are dealing with the account and that correspondence should be directed to them-still no response to the CCA though.

 

So, my questions are:

 

Do I send a CCA to Capquest (they are quite persistent with their calls, txts and emails)?

Do I respond to Arrow?

 

Thanks

Hi all

 

Anybody any idea about this other topic I posted a few days ago? 

 

Just that I've received another letter from CAPQUEST again today stating that they are managing the account on behalf of Arrow Global....Arrow were sent a CCA letter at the beginning of May-ive still not had a response from them but now being hassled by Capquest? Do I send Capquest a CCA letter?

 

Thanks

I'm being hassled by Capquest….A LOT! Lots of calls and letters, even got through to me at work which is not ideal. 

 

Do I send them a CCA request (I never received one from Arrow after sending one to them beginning of May)? I know what you've said previously @dx100uk but to get them off my back-send the CCA request or just continue to block and ignore?

 

If the advice is to continue to ignore, what is the next step I should look out for from them or what could they do next?

 

Thanks

I've (finally) had a response to the CCA request I sent to Arrow in April!

 

The letter they sent back includes; a copy of the agreement and a copy of the terms and conditions.

 

They 'confirm'; the account is in default and the total sum outstanding.

 

And they request-'please now provide your proposal for repayment of your debt. Failure to do so will result in the continuation of collection activity, which in your case may include litigation'.

 

They also advise that they are only dealing with this document request and that all enquiries should be directed to Capquest...

 

What would anyone advise I do now with Arrow/Capquest?

Thanks

Thanks @dx100uk, you see things that I just didn't even notice! 

 

And actually (and apologies for not uploading at the same time) but I received the attached letter the day before this 'agreement' came through-clearly stating that they hadn't received the necessary documents but that it hasn't been overlooked etc, then the very next day I receive the documents.....?

 

So, do I respond?

 

Many thanks

I've had an annual statement through from Arrow-they show that the £1 postal order I sent in for the CCA request has been classed a 'payment received'..?

 

Surely this can't be right, I stated that the postal order should be used for no other purpose-as per the template letter..??

 

What should I do?

 

Thanks
