I had a terrible call from Creditfix yesterday. The lady made me feel very anxious and upset (which I told her)
She was talking so fast at me about apparent arrears on my account (she said I hadn't paid the right amount since January) and when I said I had it in writing from them my monthly payment could reduce as my rent went up, she denied all knowledge and kept throwing figures at me and asking me what I can afford a month, wanting an answer there and then! I was at work sitting in the stairway! I've got less than 2 years left now on my IVA and I don't need all the stress of being put on the spot and shouted at. At one point she said she had exams in this type of work and she knew way more than me about it!
Has anyone had experience of this with Creditfix? My debt was sold to them 2 years ago and I've not been happy with their customer service at all, they constantly make you feel belittled and ashamed.
All of their calls are recorded put a complaint in against her they should not be speaking to you in this way in my opinion, Do you still have the letter from them or did they confirm this by email to you?

Communication is not their strong point by a long shot ! She might know a bit about the technicalities ( though I doubt it) but seems to know nothing of customer service.
Ask them to provide WRITTEN details of their claim and where they get their figures which you can then refute. You really need things in writing to facilitate any complaint you may wish to make. You will need to complain to CF direct first, so also ask for details of their complaints procedure. If you get no joy you can then escalate a complaint, via the governement gateway, to their regulators.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
