AIC Debt Collections
is a debt collection agents that has purchased a delinquent account
from the original creditor, usually a bank for a small percentage of
the original value of the debt and is brazenly attempting to recover
the full sum of the original account from you.
AIC Debt Collections
will use all sorts of nasty methods to get you to set up a direct debit
or standing order in order to profit from you. You may already have
experienced bad and terrifying experiences of them. They may phone you
up when they know it is inconvenient or even embarrassing for you and
do so unacceptably often. They may write you official-appearing nastily
worded letters or cards threatening to send people round to collect
the money in full or take you to court for the full amount. Other tactics
may include attempting an order for sale charge on your home or in some
way bring about your homelessness or destitution.
So ask AIC Debt
Collections for a copy of the original contract when you took out your
loan or credit card.

Data On AIC Debt Collections
My thanks to the excellent Consumer
Action Group forums for these extracts:
[Forum advice to a respondent]: I think you need
to write to AIC Debt Collections and tell them that your brother doesn't
live at that address, that you don't know where he lives, etc - in
fact, all the things you told them on the phone -put it in writing.
Also tell them that they must not phone again. Point out that contacting
people who are not the debtor is contrary to the OFT Guidelilnes on
Debt Collection and that, if they phone you again now that you have
told them your brother is not at that address, you will report them
to the relevant authorities for harassment and may even call in the
police. At the end write, "if you do not understand any part
of this letter you should contact a qualified solicitor"
you have any information that you would like honest people to know
about AIC Debt Collections then send us an email in complete confidence
and we will try to corroborate it with the clowns involved.
