Hello all

Short and to the point: does anybody know a reputable debt collection agency based in/that has a branch in Wales, possibly Swansea?
Thanks in advance.

good idea May 20, 2013

I think we have a problem in common, down there in Wales. And we are not alone, judging from the series of negative comments that one can read around.

I read on another forum, dedicated to the same... problem, that someone used the UK Small Claims Court and they paid up. Maybe you could try that. Apparently, it only costs £80 to file the claim (which is much cheaper than a solicitor).

Here’s the link: https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/overview


Any suggestions from our colleagues from the UK are of course welcome!!!

Thanks Sebastiano May 21, 2013

Right, I think we are not alone...
UK claims court is an option, so is the European small claims procedure. But I would still like to know a debt collection agency in the general area. More arrows in the threats quiver, you know... !

An idea May 21, 2013

I would always start (in the UK) by stating my intention to start a winding up notice if all other more polite methods have failed.

More information about this here:
https://www.gov.uk/wind-up-a-company-that-owes-you-money/overview

This is valid for debts of over 750 pounds sterling.

On many occasions, even just the suggestion that this is the route you are going to take is enough for the agency in question to cough up.

I think I know which agency you mean (begins with a 'v'?) and I think that they are going through serious cash-flow problems. I therefore think that the first people who will get paid will be the most vociferous (the squeaky wheel gets the oil) and the quickest to get their foot in the payment claim door.

Good luck!
