Hello everyone - hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Well the calls have finally stopped (seven whole days without any calls)[:D] and we didn't get our usual 08:00 wake-up call yesterday or today from Barclaycard nor our bedtime call 20:55 from MBNA.

We are still getting silly letters as reported on Friday from Egg, and in Saturday's mail we got a whole load of new Credit Cards from MBNA (we cut these up into tiny little pieces) and cheques from Barclaycard (which we shredded).

I have scanned the letters from Egg to our IP as well as the letter from our bank and will speak to them tomorrow. Thanks once again to everyone for Friday - I was in a little bit of a panic, but your reassurances really helped. xx [:I]

Even if they do ring you again just refer them to your IP.

I'm afraid I wouldn't be so polite.

I didn't say in a polite manner!

I never spoke to mine at all, other than on the day my IVA was approved and Mercers called.

I took great delight in telling them that I had been approved - and they still asked me for a payment!

Nice one Jan.
Hope you sent them away with more than a flea in their ear.

Actually, I was polite that time! I knew they couldn't do anything and just asked them if they understood 'I'm in an IVA and you can't ask me for any money'.

They've not rung since!

The funny thing is that we had got so use to these two creditors calling that we knew the pattern of calling - the morning call was always Barclaycard and the evening always MBNA. One particular chap at MBNA told my husband that he was his last call before going home at 21:00 hrs. MBNA always called between 20:50 and 21:00!!

They are not human they are some kind of subterranian species that work unearthly hours.

Mercers would start at 8 and continue until 9. No pattern to the calls, and they would try and lull me into a false sense of security by missing a couple of days.

Didn't work though!
