Once your IVA is approved you will normally be contacted by various firms offering to 'review' your IVA. Some even suggest that they are government appointed but all they want to do is fill out bankruptcy papers for you and charge a grand for the service.

Any unsolicited mail you receive should be sent to your IP or put in the shredder and if you ever have any problems with your IVA go to your IP first. There are numerous warnings about these companies so do not go anywhere near them.

Ignore these companies. Michael is correct in that they are only out to make money from you and are not bothered about your situation.

If you are in an IVA and are happy with it, then stick with it.

If you have any problems then speak to your IP to see if they can help you out.

Avoid like the plague! They nearly had me very early on in our IVA.

As Kallis says if your happy n doing well in your IVA stick with it.

Agree with all others, bin it, shred it, send it to your IP, do whatever with it but ignore them like the plague. x
