  • Tuttsi's INTERVIEW WITH THE BBC re CENTO

    CLAIMS MANAGEMENT COMPANIES

    I had an interview today with the BBC, it should be shown on Saturday 6th June 7am-9am on BBC1.

    My interview was based on my own experience and phone call with Cento Client Review.

    They were also interviewing another consumer who paid 265 for his claims assistance, plus the MOJ and the CAB, they have an allotted 2.5 minutes to capture whats going on here with this companies.

    I hope that I have helped to make a difference and I certainly tried to include the name Legal Beagles within my interview. But it is likely that most of what was said will be condensed, probably to either very little or nothing at all.

    I did my best but since I have never been good at public speaking I had to overcome this as this has been my project now since mid April ever since I received their call.....and which I still intend getting to the bottom of how they obtained my personal details.

    Tuttsi, the first time is the worst, because once you realise what you think you didn't say, you learn that the next time, YOU WILL be well versed in it.

            Well done Tuttsi, I know it's not easy I was interviewed a bit back.
            Think I must have the 'face for radio' though, cause they didn't use it.

                    If there is a genuine issue about debt, the right thing is to talk to your lender first, not to find some other way of wiping your debt


                    Kevin Rousell, Ministry of Justice



                    Thats fair enough and yes people should go to the lender first, but many lenders ignore you, harrass and bully you and for many using the law, the cca 1974/2006, is the only way to get the companys to actually negotiate fairly with you. thats not what these CMcs are doing tho, and people need to be aware, like bank chrges and PPI, they can do it themselves, with cca's at least to a point.

                    much more needs to be done to clamp down on the dodgy companies, complaints should be publicised, much as the fsa and fos are planning with other financial institutions... when these 17 odd cases in chester get underway there should be a bit more publicity showing the truth about the cca, how it is not a loophole, and how it isnt a one step write off debt move. There are good companies out there with decent solicitors and they are being tarred with the same brush. Specialist solicitors will check your agreements for free and take on bona fide cases on a nwnf basis. never any need to pay someone a stack upfront.

                      Ministry warns on debt write-offs


                      By Brian Milligan
                      Business reporter, BBC News


                      Mr Sharrock says he paid a fee but received no service

                      The Ministry of Justice has warned consumers about the dangers of trying to get debts written off.
                      They say hundreds of claims management companies are charging large up-front fees, and making misleading claims about the chances of success.
                      Steve Sharrock, an oil engineer from Manchester, received a phone call from one such company, out of the blue.
                      They told him there was a 99.9% chance that they could get his credit card debts written off entirely.
                      This was because the credit card companies may have made mistakes in the paperwork which would breach the Consumer Credit Act.
                      'Con'
                      But after paying an upfront fee of 275, Mr Sharrock never heard from the company again.
                      "It's just a scam," he told the BBC.
                      If there is a genuine issue about debt, the right thing is to talk to your lender first, not to find some other way of wiping your debt


                      Kevin Rousell, Ministry of Justice

                      "They're obviously only concerned about getting money off you as quickly as they can. It's a con."
                      The company that approached Mr Sharrock wasn't licensed by the Ministry of Justice.
                      But even amongst more legitimate claims companies, consumer groups say the assertions they make in their adverts are often misleading.
                      Typically one company claims on its website that "80% of all credit agreements may be unenforceable".
                      In other words, the chances of getting your debts written off are high.
                      'Talk to lender'
                      But the Citizens Advice Bureau believes such figures are completely unrealistic.
                      Sue Edwards, the CAB's head of consumer policy, says the chances of getting any debts written off in this way are "probably quite slim."
                      The Ministry of Justice has already issued two warnings about such claims. But with new companies springing up every week, the ministry is struggling to keep up with them.
                      Kevin Rousell from the ministry suggests consumers should never pay any money up front, and they should find other ways of getting rid of debt
                      "If there is a genuine issue about debt, the right thing is to talk to your lender first, not to find some other way of wiping your debt," he said.
                      The Ministry now has a team of 34 enforcement officers in the Midlands, including five new recruits. Their job is to crack down on misleading claims, and, if necessary, remove operating licences.
                      'Angry'
                      But it isn't only people with credit card debt who are being targeted by the claims companies.
                      Denise Silverstein, from north London, was surprised to receive a phone call in April, from a company offering to wipe her mortgage debt of 3,000. In fact she had paid off the mortgage some time ago.
                      She was asked to pay 50 up front, but "found out at a later stage that they would take another 20%".
                      She was also upset that she and her husband had been cold-called, on an ex-directory number.
                      "I feel very angry," she added.
                      A judge at Chester Crown Court has estimated that as many as 100,000 people may now be trying to get their debts written off via the courts. So even if some of them are eventually successful, it will take a long time for their cases to be proven.
