So this letter has now landed on your doorstep, the colour of the letter and the tone designed to scare you into action.
It would seem that previous letters from this creditor and others have probably been ignored by you. This sort of letter must be treated as important, failure to do anything will probably result in them taking legal action against you. The longer this sort of situation goes on, means that you will have less room to manoeuvre and come to a deal, to prevent further action.
I would suggest that you get into some form of dialogue with the company in order to get a suitable solution in place.
Many people are afraid to contact creditors because of previous harassment and constant phone calls from them. For many debt collection company’s, they seem to have an in-house policy of being as objectionable as possible. They want to try and squeeze as much money out of you as possible.
It is always best to write to the creditors, this way you have a record of all your dealings with them.
Another option is to get a third party involved, who can negotiate with the creditors on your behalf.
You can also contact me and I can discuss your situation, to see what the best debt solution is for you.
