Firstly, DO NOT BANK ANYWHERE YOU HAVE DEBTS OR A MORTGAGE!
Most banks have the 'right' to transfer (steal) cash from your bank or savings account to pay off other debts held with them, such as credit cards, loans or mortgage.
We have instructions on the site for credit repair, should you feel it necessary.
Decide whether to use the ‘Addressee Not Recognised’ labels, (for debt collectors only) the 'Standard Letters' or go for the Common Law Copyright Procedure. Then download the relevant letters i.e. Banks, Credit cards, Debt Collectors or Solicitors.
When you send a letter to a bank, it’s best to send them to the CEO if you can find the name, if not put F.A.O. (For attention off) The CEO in the address line then Dear Sir or Madam. A list of CEOs can be found here http://www.ceoemail.com
Different countries are found in the links above the table. Also send a copy of each letter to the contact in the collection department, who sent you the letter.
When you receive a letter from a Debt Collector, reply to whoever sent the letter to you; if there is no name, 'Dear Sir or Madam' will do. Once you start sending the letters, ALWAYS send them to the person who originally sent you the letter. These organisations like changing names and departments, ignore this and continue send your letters to the person who sent them to you.
ALWAYS send the letters by recorded delivery and keep the receipt with your copy of the letter sent.
Wait Ten (10) days then send Letter 2. If you receive a response to any of the letters, your reply must be the next letter when the time is right.
Wait Ten (10) days then send Letter 3.
If all is quiet after about a month send the Estoppel.
If they continue to chase you, Bill them, as per the Fee Schedule in Letter 3, for every time you have ANY contact from them.
Do not send any money to them. In the UK they think you are requesting information under Section 78 of the Consumer Credit Act, and a statutory fee of £1 is required for this service.
If they sell it on to a Debt Collector before they get letter 3 still send letter 3 to them to get them in a Tacit Agreement and start again with the new company.
They are likely to send threatening letters but that's all it is; a threat. The banks often respond with the laws that we are quoting do not apply to this country, or will say it doesn't apply to them and you have got this template letter of the Internet. So what if you have, it doesn't make them any less powerful. They send us template letters all the time!
They may ignore the letters and continue to send you ‘threats-o-grams’, if they do, simply follow the procedure, keep sending the letters and ultimately bill them.
- Always act responsibly
- Remain lawful and honourable.
- Always be honest and polite. Even when your ‘opponent’ isn’t.
- Don’t be greedy. If you get ‘credit’ to a Porsche, you are beginning to act like a banker.
Don’t use it as a way of purchasing material goods to satisfy your ego, as your ego will never be satisfied.
Work on reigning in or letting go of your ego; you’ll be then much happier in yourself.
