Debt Collecting will use all sorts of nasty methods to get money out
of you so that they can make a quick profit. You may have already
experienced bad dealings with them on the phone. They may call you
when they know it is inconvenient or even embarrassing for you and
on an unacceptably numerous number of occasions. They may send you
official-looking sternly drafted letters threatening to send someone
round and collect the money in full or take you to court if you cannot
pay. Other tactics may involve attempting a charging order on your
home or in some way cause you and your family great personal suffering.

Data On AIC Debt Collecting
My thanks to the excellent Consumer
Action Group forums for these extracts:
This is the first time I have joined the forum
but was interested to see that AIC Debt Collecting harrass people
other than I. Both my experiences with them stem from Lloyds TSB.
The first was an outstanding "loan" of around £23,000.
This was built up over a long period of time by the bank calling,
making an unrealistic demand and then "restructuring" the
loan for a higher amount with a lower APR. Eventually I could not
cope and they almost immediately instructed AIC Debt Collecting who
wrote demanding the full amount. Even worse they addressed a likewise
letter to me at work! I work in a legal practice and all correspondence
is opened by the managing partner who was needless to say concerned
at their threat to obtain a charging order on the office building!
Our comments: Threats to obtain charging
orders are just one tactic that these muppets use. All these threats
are as empty as all the others, and are merely there to frighten you.
Don't fall for it. Get them to put everything in writing and never
speak to them on the phone. Get tough with AIC Collecting and you'll
be surprised at how easy these hard men will shrivel away like pansies!
you have any information that you would like honest people to know
about AIC Debt Collecting then send us an email in complete confidence
and we will try to corroborate it with the clowns involved.
