The secret diary of a single parent bloke

Could it finally be over?

Uploaded: Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Friday, May 27th, 2005.

Received a call from the police- Katrina had been taken to the police station, made a full confession about the credit card fraud, and been arrested! She’s out on bail and will have to return to the police station in a couple of weeks. Perhaps now the credit card company will stop threatening me about the arrears.

Perhaps not.

Another threatening letter from the credit card company. Since they found out where I actually live and work, I’ve been bombarded with stuff from them- in addition to the threats of court action and bailiffs, I’ve received loan application forms, credit card cheques, special offers, applications for a new credit card…. this company is unbelievable! [I'd love to name and shame, but I'd better not]

But I guess they want their money (now over £7000). I phone them up (again) and demand (again) to speak to the illusive “senior manager” (again) whose name is at the bottom of these letters. After a very long time on hold, I’m informed that he no longer works there. I informed them of the progress, and that Katrina has admitted everything and been arrested. They said they’d call me back later that day. They didn’t.

    The staff at these debt companies are quite shocking – most of my ex’s debts got ‘sold on’ almost daily which lead to different companies all phoning to chase the same debts, with varying degrees of aggression and menace – it mattered not to them WHO actually owed the money. It’s a frightening world that one.

    I think a lot credit card companies and banks are all the same…I often feel so angry that my ex was allowed to keep getting card after card…even though he now claims to have debts of up to £700K! Not all CC’s I might add but a huge amount is. Some people have no control and there should be a central place that shows up all of this, for the good of everyone concerned. And, like you, applications for more cc’s still come in the post for him! :0S

    You absolutely do not have to worry about naming & shaming the vile credit card company. All you have to make sure is that what you say is provably true if it is a statement of fact you make.

    Otherwise, you can describe them as the vilest scum imaginable as long as you make it clear that is YOUR OPINION and not a statement of fact. You can also say anything you like about how their actions make you feel. Viz:

    ‘The credit card company just told me that I was fully responsible for paying all the debt, regardless that it was all fraudulently generated by my wife, and they did not want to discuss the matter further’, /…………. which made me feel the credit card company were the nastiest bastards in the universe and were just completely dishonest and fraudulent loan sharks who were no better than part of an organised crime gang’.

    Get the idea ?.

    Look at this blog here for examples of what someone else (me) thinks of banks, credit card companies and all the other thieves in the financial industry.
