    • The 1st 2 calls were the normal scam calls. get a truecall box   the PDC stuff you ignore their letter States our client three whom if you wanted too you deal with directly.   Until/unless whenever it gets sold on and they send a letter of claim you maintain radio silence    
    • hi all. bit of advice please. I had a Three contract up until November last year. At £11pcm for 24mths. Paid every month on time via their online portal. When I ported over, I received a letter from Three thanking me for being a customer blah blah blah.. It also said IF I owed anything a final bill will be sent. No final bill ever received - I get a phone call around the first week in December form an Indian sounding man who was extremly difficult to understand. Said he was calling from Three, and wanted me to confirm my details - something of which I didnt as something didnt sit right. He said I could log into my account and review my bill as I owed money and then hung up. After the call I thought I'd best log into my account just in case.  Couldnt log in. Account access denied. Logged on to chat - they said as I ported over and I was no longer a customer my access was suspended. Couple of weeks later I had another call from a local area number and answered again it was some Indian guy telling me I owed money, wanting me to confirm details. I refused and he said details will be sent out to me to my email on account and my home address as it was important. Once again nothing.. 15th Dec I received an email from PastDue in my name RE Three. Email stated they were contacting me about Three an I should receive a letter soon regards to this matter. Says about visiting their website.  22nd Jan another email form Pastdue. Stating they have yet to receive a response to the letter, and they had already sent me an email about this. We will continue to contact you until this matter is resolved. Again asks me to login. 23rd Jan letter received dated 13th Jan. Titled "We are here to help keep your Three Services"  Claiming I owed "Airetime Balance £201.43" and contract period was 26/11/2019 to 25/11/2020 States "We have been appointed by Three to recover the amount of £201.43. If you pay this amount in full Three may be able to waive the cancellation fee and reconnect their service for you" - what cancellation fee / re connection??? I ended the contract giving the 30days notice and paying the last bill.. Then the normal crap about its important to pay. If I'm experiencing difficulties etc. Now both December and  January Credit reports from ClearScore, Credit Karma, Credit Expert, Totally Money and Equifax all show Three as Closed and balance as Zero. (Date Satisfied /closed 17th Nov, bal 0, last updated 30th Nov) I've had nothing from Three. As far as I'm concerned I owe nothing as no final bill and no access to the portal. Should I email PastDue and do a prove it & attach proof of Credit Reports being £0 or do I do something else?  
    • Hi she did say she was cancelling and returned the equipment. It looks like they put her on a rolling contract for 24 months when she phoned before trying to reduce her payments as they kept going up. I know Sky haven't done that to me. She didn't see that email as she's had lots of stressful situations. No.letter in post or when she originally phoned about reducing her bill well over £100 they didn't tell her about this contract. Like you say there should be recordings. BT mobile contract is separate to broadband and the cancellation fee is for the broadband. They have blocked her mobile so she can't use it and that is a contract. She is phoning CAB in the morning and checking through her paperwork. I'm quite happy with Sky as they tell you upfront what is happening and have never rolled over my contract. Thanks for taking time to reply it is much appreciated.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hello,

 

Id like some advice please.

Ive just sent back the paperwork to stepchange which they have received and are processing.

I have the 4 following debts...... but 3 are mine and the last one is in my nme but was opened fraudulently ( thats another story )

 

AquaCredit card : £4400

Hitachi Capital Finance: £5070

Vodafone: £214

FashionWorld: £170

 

 

Stepchange tell me my payment amount will be £114 each month.

 

 

MY question is :

 

Is it possible i can get some of this debt written off....and which company do i use to help me with this.....and do they charge for this?

Did you run through information on these debts with Stepchange ?

 

If yes, then Stepchange should have thought about any debt relief solution that might have helped and decided none was available to you, because of income, assets etc.

 

But tell us more about these debts and your current circumstances.

 

There is no magic debt write off solution out there, which does not have an element of pain. E.g DRO, Bankruptcy.

We could do with some help from you.

YES ... stepchange are aware. £114 a month is do-able for all 3 debts..

 

I only live in rented accommodation...council... I ran up my credit card then took the loan out from Hitachi to clear it....then I got divorced and moved into new avcomifation that needed decorating so I ended up spending again.

 

My own stupid fault admittedly.im over my aquacard by 350 quid but that is purely interest and OL fees

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

Hello all,

 

I was on a repayment plan with Cabot , initially £30 a month then I raised it to £50. 

Today I received a letter saying they have reviewed my account would like to increase it to £64.

They go on to say they make routine reviews and also when they do this, they make additional checks which includes credit bureau information.

 

I am not happy to increase the payment but there is no option to decline.

I am afraid that if I don’t accept, they will stop the current plan and begin to pile interest.

Current balance is £3052.52.

 

Anyone know what I can do in this situation?

 

Thanks

They have frozen all interest and this is why I agreed to make payments. I literally just want it gone and out the way. My account was defaulted in the end.

It was Aqua card but I couldn’t find my previous posts ,as they’re quite old,  to add this to.

so still doesn't mean you blindly pay a powerless dca...

 

they are NOT BAILIFFS.

 

how old was it...when did you take the card out?

 

it will never be gone whilst you blindly pay a DCA and run the statute barred date to infinity..

 

ever sent these fleecers a CCA request?

even thought...why did aqua sell my debt on for 10p=£1 toa DCA and not take me to court and crush me.??? urm..i wonder why....

  • dx100uk changed the title to Cabot and old Aqua card debt - keep wanting me to increase payments

How are you making payment...Direct Debit ?   Switch it to a standing order of £50.00 ...and inform them same and that you are not in agreement with their review or increase.....particularly during the current climate...leave as is.

Aqua closed the account and it opened with Cabot.

Been on a repayment plan for 3 years and few months and they never reviewed it until now.
