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.
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.
Remind them that in the same way that their staff should expect to be treated with respect and not be intimidated that you expect to be treated in the same way.
If calls are recorded all ingoing and outgoing calls have to have a message stating that.
Ask for a copy of the call - as it was created in the last 48 hours they cannot charge you for it.
They are out of their depth next year when the new data protection regulations come into force.
What you can afford is not negotiable at this stage - it is whether your income and expenditure justify a specific amount.
