I do not know if this is OK to post but who are Lowells and what is a DCA.

 

I ask as I have a letter from them saying I owe them £475 or £290 if I pay now from an old capital one card.

 

I think they are also after payments from SKY and Virgin who I cancelled years ago as they broke the contract and over charged as I agreed only to a fixed rate.

 

The Capital one they want to take me to County Court. Should I be worried?

I have received a Lowells letter which is from someone who says they are the handler of my account with Lowells. 

 

They have attached a copy of agreement, default notice. '

 

It states that their client has now issued legal proceedings against me that could lead to a County Court judgement being entered against me.

 

To avoid the following I can pay a lump sum of £290 or £405.88 in 6 monthly payments.

 

There is a copy of a capital One statement that says I am £72 over limit and a default notice issued dated 3/4/17 and another dated 6/5/17 stating I owe £297 in total.

 

If I pay the £290 is this finished?

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...

No not at all but still having problems with Royal Mail as they have us listed wrong as they changed it for some unknown reason a few years ago.

 

Our mail has been bad for at least the last 3 years.

well lowells solicitors would issue the claim thru northants bulk, and they would not be a client of lowell dca.

though the letter is quite usual for whomever sent it , to be sent weeks after a claim was issued just to intimidate people.

 

can you scan it to PDFplease

read upload.

only if they return to court and the judge grants court bailiffs use.

a dca is not and never can be ... a bailiff no matter what.

no harm in ringing northants bulk and asking if a Claimform has been raised against you.

do lowell quote the claim number on their letter?

I always thought that credit cards were unsecured debts?

 

If a CCJ were made can Bailiff's then be used? 
  

 

Unsecured +CCJ + Charging Order ( if you have mortgaged property)  = unsecured debt becoming secured debt.

DCA = debt collection agency. lowells, cabot etc etc

 

the cap1 debt they stated in 21st december says £1761.19 

but the 5th jan letter which states a claim number (so a court claim must have been raised!!) states you have filed a defence with the court (have you?) but from 21st dec to 5th jan is very very quick for a claim to be raised and for you to ack it and file a defence

and the claimed sum does not add up to +£1700 but more like +£2700

 

did you have 2 cap1 cards?

 

or the jan 5 letter is a mistake by lowells and its been sent to the wrong person

Yes I did have 2 cards but gave them up 3 or 4 years ago.

 

The £290 claim I did have some papers arrive but sent back as never received anything before. So that is why it says that.

 

They just kept upping the limit and just paying minimum+  was getting nowhere.
