I have just had to leave dubai due to redundancy and I have 2 credit cards bills that are around 250,000.

 

I still have 50k or so in my bank over there so can service the debt but its now looking like Il be staying in the UK and wont be able to continue the repayments at some point soon.

 

I have moved in with my father and my wife and baby will soon be joining.

 

What would be your advice?

for now go around YOU and your friends and relatives..

make SURE ALL your social media platforms like facebook linkedin or Whatever are LOCKED DOWN TO PRIVATE or already invited persons view ONLY.

 

the idea of this is to limit the information they can gather upon you and others, because they WILL use anyone they can contact to embarrass and frighten you into paying.

 

yes as you've read here on CAg..there is the longterm  prospect they can try court here ...so get yourself protected.

 

as for you wife and child

they are your most important asset , keep paying for now if you can until you get them safely out of that country.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

2 credits card with a debt total of £54500  ?

 

That seems like a lot of money to have spent using credit cards.

 

Is it usual for Banks in Dubai to allow spending at that level ?

 

Do you own any property assets in Dubai, UK or elsewhere ?

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

Yes its very usual. with no questinons asked. They just keep upping the limit. pushing you onto lower interest loans. 

 

I was made redundant last summer but got a new gig on less cash which was supposed to be a stepping stone.

 

Unfortunately those plans are not going to come to fruition and with the flights being locked down the sensible option was to leave.

 

Fortunately my wife and child are not in the UAE right now.

 

Its an unfortunate situation but This Covid virus has really made a bad situation into a bit of a mare.

 

Propertywise we have a place in my wifes homeland in her name so thats fine.

Probably many years of threatening letters, and not much else. Never ever speak to these people on the phone or communicate via email. Any future communication should be in writing only.

 

Stick to these rules and you can put this to the back of your mind.
