How Can I Get Out of Debt?

With a simple legislated debt solution you can consolidate all your debts into one lower, affordable monthly repayment. Make one set payment per month for a set period, and after the period expires any remaining debts left are legally written off. This can be up to 90% depending on your circumstances.

Has anyone heard of DEBT & REVENUE SERVICES ??

beaky1 asked:

Im currently dealing with correspondence from Debt & Revenue Services based in Liverpool…It clearly says on their correspondence letters “Debt Collection Agents” so I sent off Letter 1 and received a reply saying they are not debt collection agents and have not purchased my outstanding debt ??? any suggestions anyone..

Many thanks for any help with this one

It is obvious they are lying as per their website: http://www.my-drs.co.uk/

They are part of the Arden group, who are debt collectors.

They are breaching FCA rules, as per:

3.3.1: (1) A firm must ensure that a communication or a financial promotion is clear, fair, and not misleading.

General requirements:

3.3.2: A firm must ensure that a communication or a financial promotion:

(1) uses plain and intelligible language;

(2) is easily legible (or, in the case of any information given orally, clearly audible);

(3) specifies the name of the person making the communication or communicating the financial promotion or the person on whose behalf the financial promotion is made

And:

Contacting customers:

7.9.1: A firm must ensure that a person contacting a customer on its behalf explains to the customer the following matters:

(1) who the person contacting the customer works for;

(2) the person’s role in or relationship with the firm; and

(3) the purpose of the contact.

7.9.2: A firm must not in a communication with the customer make a statement which may induce the customer to contact the firm misunderstanding the reason for making contact.

Quote the above in your next letter and cite their website page stating:

Debt And Revenue Services

Debt Collection Agency

Inform them that if they continue to contact you insisting they are not a Debt Collection Agency that you will report them to the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Financial Conduct Authority and the Information Commissioner’s Office, as they must hold a Consumer credit License to be a debt collection agency, and if they do not, then they are acting illegally and have no right to contact you whatsoever.

Take Care. 😀

Many thanks Faljay

Could I possibly send you a copy of my last correspondence from Debt & Revenue? to see what you make of it ? Cheers

apertures replied:

Post it for all to see if you would be so kind?

Dont forget to blank out any details and try and upload as a pdf, it makes any possible document sniffing that little bit harder.

It also helps anyone else who receives the same kind of letters.

Faljay replied:

By all means, and I replied to your PM.
