I have an arrangement with Ruthbridge to repay my Citifinancial debt. However Ruthbridge keep threatening to pettion for Bsankruptcy everytime my payment is slightly late. When I try to explain that my fiances are precarious he calls me a liar and threatens to send a bankruptcy petition round to my house. I do not own any property and there is no CCJ to my knowledge. Are they just being nasty or can they make me bankrupt which would destroy all my hard work getting straight with my other creditors

I owe about £6000. I make the payment every month but sometimes its late. Thats when the threats start. I don't like being called a liar by them for a start. I have no assets so don't see hoe being made bankrupt will help my creditors

How much do you owe? They can't bankrupt you if the debt is for less than £750. They would also have to get a judgement such as a Statutory Demand against you before they were able to petition for your bankruptcy. In your defence, to stop a bankruptcy being ordered, you would be able to point out that you are in an arrangement, that they (Ruthbridge) have agreed, and the judge would not make you bankrupt. In my opinion it's an empty threat.

 

However, that doesn't mean you should stop bothering to make the payments; press on and try to close this chapter of your finances as quickly as possible.

 

Hope this answers your question, post if you need any further info,

Ruthbridge do not take any proceedings against anybody. They are simply acting on behalf of a client who has likeley purchased your debt from the original creditor. Approx 90% of the debt they attempt to recover is in this category. Some of them may sound like they know what they are talking about, but the reality is that they will not and do not sue & certainly the old bankruptcy ploy is simply that, a ploy. This is fact not fiction.

Hi

I just found this website by accident & am I pleased I did.

It would appear I am not the only person that has been suffering sleepless nights because of Ruthbridge Ltd & the abusive,intimidating & threatening practices that they seem to enjoy using

Having received a letter from them about a debt I had thought my ex partner had payed off when our relationship ended 4 yrs ago I duly phoned them as asked to in the letter.

What happened next not only confused me, but frightened me.

I was put thru to a Brian Blair who at the outset was taking a very agressive manner, when I asked any question he told me in no uncertain terms that there was no room for negotiation he wanted a payment in full of £5,000. when I asked if I could pay it in installments he flatly refused. I tried to explain to him that I was unable to make a full payment, he then called me a liar & said he was now going to start bankruptcy proceedings & he will be getting a land registry search done & will seize my property, when he said this I tried to explain I rent the place where I live he said again that I was a liar ( I actually do live in rented accomodation ) & he also would contact the DVLA & he will have any car that was registered to me seized & he would have my bank account frozen.

He then went on to say he will be making a personal visit in the next 2 days to seize any assets in my home. At this point I hung up as a friend of mine had called in to find me litterally shaking.

After talking to my friend they suggested I contact the CAB which I have done & have an appointment to see a debt counsellor .

The point I can`t seem to understand is, how is threatening me & telling me I would be made bankrupt going to achieve anything ? I have no real assets to speak of, I live in rented accomodation, I do work but have a low income & I am already paying back debts in installments that my ex partner left me with.

The whole week has been a nightmare for me, it`s made me miserable & depressed & unable to sleep which is now affecting me at work.

Why are people like these allowed to use bully boy tactics & get away with it.

I have just got a letter today from Ruthbridge and like an idiot i called them and spoke to a guy called Derek Maxwell who told me he wanted the full £6000 by the 27th July or he would make me bankrupt, I tried tell him i could not pay the full amount by then but he was not having any of it. he then said ok you can pay in 2 instalments but that is it or you will be made bankrupt. I moved home 5 years ago and mistakenly forgot 1 credit card i'm sure it was not for £6000

 

I made the mistake of giving him my mobile number

 

can anyone offer any advice

Hi All, I'm new to the site but from what advice has been given to me, first of all you need to write a letter to Ruthbridge asap, and send Recorded Delivery. Do not, under any circumstances speak to them via phone anymore. If they ring, don't answer or if you answer accidentally, hang up. Don't speak to them.

 

 

Your Address

Their Address

 

 

Client Ref No.

Ruthbridge Ref. No.

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE ANY DEBT TO YOUR COMPANY

 

With reference to the above account, I request that you send me a true copy of this credit agreement before I will correspond further on this matter.

 

This is my right under the legislation contained within section 77 (1) and section 78 (1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, and I am entitled to receive a copy of my credit agreement on request.

 

Your obligation also extends to providing me with a statement of account. I enclose a [postal order/cheque] for £1, which represents payment of the statutory fee payable under the Consumer Credit Act. I understand that a copy of my credit agreement should be supplied within 12 working days from the date of this letter.

 

I understand that under the Consumer Credit Act, creditors are unable to enforce an agreement if they fail to comply with a request for a copy of the agreement under these sections of the Act.

 

Also, since you are a Debt Collection Agency, I would also ask that you supply a signed true copy of the executed deed of assignment for the above referenced agreement. This is an obligation, whether you are the original creditor or not, under section 189 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Non-compliance with my request is a criminal offence under the above Act and will result in a report being submitted to the relevant statutory authorities.

 

In summary, I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THIS DEBT AND THEREFORE REQUIRE YOU TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS BY PROVIDING THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTATION BEFORE I CORRESPOND FURTHER:

 

i. True copy of original credit agreement

ii. Statement of account

iii. Copy of the executed deed of assignment from ...

 

As you are aware, a credit agreement that is not properly documented and signed by the customer is totally unenforceable under the CCA and therefore is a complete defence to any court claim that is issued.

 

Take note at this stage, that any legal action you may contemplate will be both vigorously defended and contested.

 

Further to the above, please ensure that any contact by you is made in writing only to the above address. Telephone calls and personal visits will not be accepted and viewed as harassment.

 

I look forward to hearing from you within the statutory time limit.

 

Yours faithfully

 

--------------------------------

 

 

 

You give them 12 days + 2 days delivery time, to comply. If they don't respond after that time I believe they have defaulted. If they haven't responded after 30 days they have commited an offence.

 

Anyway, these are your first steps. Once they have your letter, the account *should* be put on hold. Good luck.

Hi,

I am new to this site. I happened across it, like so many others, by googling Ruthless. My husband has been being chased by the most obnoxious 'man' (I use the term 'man' loosely) called Maxwell for about 6 months now. Even though we heve repeatedly requested proof from them, nothing has come through, other than threatening and abusive phone calls to my husband (and whoever else answers the phone even though the letters are addressed to my husband) My husband has even had phone messages left on his answer phone repeatedly calling him a liar and telling him he is going to be on the streets. (phone call recently lasted for 4 minutes).

Maxwell has also called the house number and been abusive to me. He called two solid days running, I told him I was not going to speak to him. He then phoned the house number for a solid 25 minutes. Each time I tried to tell him to go away he screamed down the phone that he was going to take my house and that I too was a liar.....

I have the letter that starts ' I do not acknowledge any debt to your company' ready to be sent. Do I leave in the paragraph that starts 'Also since you are a debt collection Agency...... 'under section 189 of the CCA 1974' ?

Can you advise me please?

The fact that she spoke on the phone to them means nothing, dont speak to them again and get things in writing.

What have they sent to you as yet?

They cannot send anyone round without a court order and they are a long way from it.

So if you have nothing in writing from them yet wait until you do.

How old is the debt, what is it for?
