BES utilities has sold the debt 7 times now to different DCA,


Recommended Posts

hi 

this is more of an annoyance 

 

we bought an ex commercial property who was being supplied by BES utilities august 2017, we never had an account with them 

they blocked switch for months, charging business levies etc until dec 2017

 

got ombudsman involved who decided in our favour, made them provide credits for account for £595 making account zero , compensation payments and made them 

not block a switch over 

 

since 2018 been £595 sold to now 7 DCA, every time i send credit note ombudsman decision and say go away and they do

then sold to another DCA and the cycle repeats

 

how do i stop this ?

Doubt the debt has ever been sold once, unless you have been getting a notice of assignment each time?

 

read the letters properly..doesn't say will anything...states our client xxx up the top bet it says BES.

 

ignore them.

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...

i have been ignoring, one before this was CST law solicitors feb 2020, they stopped once i wrote with evidence

 

now gone to BSB and notice of assignment received im sure,

this time around ive just been blocking numbers and throwing things in the bin

 

but surely it harassment now

-  i dont have to keep putting up with this or providing credit note and ombudsman evidence its been going on for over three years

the very fact that you have been responding with is the very reason it's gone on this long.

never enter into any pointless letter tennis with a DCA until/unless you ever get a letter of claim.

especially the CST law one last year, said it was a letter before action and if i didnt contact them they would start the legal proceeding in 7 days - i have always denied its owed and provided evidence why its not 

 

to be honest they can go ahead and claim £595, i have the credit note enforced by the ombudsman,

 

 let them start court, they will have to come to my local place , and maybe all my evidence i can ask for an adverse costs order even though its small claims, as it was knowingly unfounded

then not sold at that point....

 

simply ignore anything else from anyone unless they issue their own letter of claim with a reply pack through another solicitor that states the new debt buyer as their client...go radio silent.

ok-so ignored everything

 

got letter this  morning 

 

wrong spelt name

wrong address

 

Final letter before action re BES Energy

now apparently acting upon behalf of Fortis Group Holdings Ltd (ive no idea who they are)

 

adding late payment charges etc

 

if payment not recieved in 14 days proceedings will be commenced without notice

 

 

 

 

1) not had any pre action or anything- so is this just another threatening letter?

2)dont owe the money ombudsman found in my favour they had to credit note me - have both pieces of evidence 

but fed up of providing this info over and over again to different debt collectors so now ignore

 

 

 

is this just another bully letter as no pre action in it?

worried they are not using correct address , so i would miss any court claim ?

why are they using an in correct address?

if there is no reply pack (I+E) then its not a PAPLOC

 

can you scan it up to PDF sure it says will?

Post code slightly different digits 

street name around corner etc 

Still went in my post box 

 

 

think it’s because we bought an old commercial building that belonged to commercial building around corner 

so never had a contract with them , 

Signed  up to sse straight away , they tried to block move 

Ombudsman got involved -

said stop billing them , they are ‘consumers’ 

provide credit and pay compo- and they did 

 

now trying to claim on original raised bills

ignoring ombudsman decision -and the fact they sent the credit note already 

 

not near a computer to scan currently
