Debt Collectors and the Truth About Your Debt
a free QuickCreditScore check by applying
Debt Collectors is a debt collecting agent which has purchased the
debtor account from the original lender, often a bank (or in some
cases an intermediary or third party) for much less than the worth
of the original account and is attempting to get the full sum of the
original debt from you.
Debt Collectors will use all sorts of nasty methods to get money
out of you in order to make money from you. You may already have experienced
bad dealings with them. They may phone you up at strange times when
they know it is inconvenient for you and do this many times every
day. They may be sending you official-appearing sternly worded letters
or cards threatening to 'send the boys round' and collect the money
in full or that they will take you to court if you cannot pay. Their
other tactics will include attempting to make a charging order on
your home or make you homeless.
ask AIC Debt Collectors for a copy of the original contract when you
took out your loan or credit card.
Data On AIC Debt Collectors
thanks to the excellent Consumer
Action Group forums for these extracts:
have tried to contact AIC Debt Collectors as requested. However
as I now live overseas it is very difficult to correspond with them.
I have made 4 phone calls today and every time the person I need
to speak to is not there and I have been told that I must speak
to him.... Also ... has been told that all correspondence must be
by telephone, and email is not an option. Are they trying to avoid
a paper trail? And how are you supposed to correspond by phone when
the bloke is never there?
am very stressed and frustrated about the whole saga.
NEVER contact any DCA by phone - always insist on everything in
I had almost exactly the same phone call from AIC Debt Collectors
in October because I was 90 days late on my payments to Amex, although
I actually thought I had a few days to go. The guy I spoke to was
a total [...]. He said I had owed Amex £8000+ but had to pay
AIC Debt Collectors £9000+ immediately plus or they would
start court proceedings, get my home repossessed, and so on. I was
hysterical. I offered £840 (which would have meant I paid
them instead of the mortgage) and they refused. By that evening
I was absolutely suicidal and called them but got their answering
machine and left messages begging them not to start proceedings.
They didn't call back in response and when I called the following
day they denied getting my calls. I was so distressed I called FSA
who referred me to CCCS and as soon as I got a reference number
to quote to AIC they backed off. This was in early October and they
haven't done anything about starting the legal proceedings, although
I got a call last month saying they would accept the £840.
I said they couldn't have it as I had paid someone else.
you I have a limited company and could lose anything. I know how
terrified you must be feeling after your calls from AIC.
The above shows the effect AIC Debt Collectors have on a lot of people.
The best thing to do is to conduct everything by letter - never by
phone. They will say things on the phone that they would not dare
to put in print simply because they would not be able to get away
with it because it is against the law.
you have any information that you would like honest people to know
about AIC Debt Collectors then send us an email in complete confidence
and we will try to corroborate it with the clowns involved.
