Arrow defaulting a vanquis debt


Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

I was on an arrangement with vanquis for a number of years paying something like 5.00 per month . Recently I noticed they sold the debt to company called arrow.

 

I haven't paid this debt in a long time. I now notice arrow have now placed a default against me.

 

When I was on an arrangement with vanquis all interest and use of the card was stopped.

 

Should this account not have been defaulted back when this arrangement was set up? 

 

the default is for 109 pound which in the grand scheme of things is not alot but just looking for any advise on how I approach this?

Arrows can mark the calendar section but cant issue a default notice nor change the defaulted date vanquis did or should have registered before or upon sale.

 

did you get a default notice from vanquis years ago?

why not send them an sar and find out?

 

when was your last payment and have you moved since taking this card out and not informed vanquis?

I am not sure if they issued me a default notice, is there a sar template that you would recommend sending.  I have moved address since take the card out but did update this with vanquis at the time.  I can't be too sure but I think last payment may have been 2019

I've noticed that the default date is Feb 2021. I was notified around October 2020 that arrow had taken over the debt

well somethings not right a debt buyer can't register a defaulted date they are not a creditor and the agreement under the CCA would have been terminated upon sale by vanquis.

 

there should or used to be a summary line showing the status of an account on credit files, name of who owns the debt, the date you took it out, outstanding balance and a defaulted date dd/mm/yyyy, but with all the changes with these free providers of your file now, it seems they don't display these correctly.

 

i would suspect if you pay the £2 for a paper version of your credit file from one of the main orgs like Experian, Equifax or the other one, that might clear things up.

Just sign up on equifax and arrow have the default date at 22/02/2021 . So going by this it looks like arrow have issued the default 

 

What would you recommend doing at this point to remove the default.  Would it be easier to just clear the payment

so you now have a line on the debt summary page that says ....Date defaulted = 22/02/21?

 

you can't remove a default, it's there for 6yrs paying or not or paid or not.

 

did you get that sar running

No not yet but as u say if they are not the original creditors then how can they register the default . 

 

I will send a sar tomorrow.  U recommend doing it by letter?

yes 1st class letter only and get free proof of posting from any PO counter to prove you sent it

 

so as i explained carefully above.... no registered default, just a D in the calendar, which only you and the debt owner can see not people doing a credit check.

that's better, so the dn is compliant, and the registered default date should have been around 7th jan 2015.

that should be detailed in the debts summary details on your credit file and should mean the debt should no longer show on your credit file as the default has exceeded it's 6th birthday.

Thanks for the help again Dx 

 

I had a look through the forum . It really is a fantastic tool and people like yourself are a credit to the site 

 

I have drafted the below letter that I indeed to send Arrow.  

 

Dear sir / madam

 

I am contacting you today in reference to a default that you have placed on my credit record incorrectly

 

Please find attached letters received from. Original creditor  vanquis in relation to the acc no xxxxxxxx obtained from a SAR request

I was issued a default notice by Vanquis in 2015 however I can you see that Arrow have placed a default for the same debt in February 2021 over 6 years later.

I am giving your company 14days from the date of this letter to remove the account forthwith from all credit ref files, if you can’t comply with the request I will raise a serious complaint with the ICO without further notice and will be seeking financial compensation for the damage to my credit worthiness.

 

Regards
