Why would they contact you?
Capquest will contact you if they have taken over an account in your name or have been asked to manage one on behalf of another lender.
Their process starts with contacting you by letter, outlining the details of the debt they are aiming to recover. They will follow the letter with a phone call a few days later. It’s also a possibility that they will send a text or email if they have your details.
The initial call will include questions to help them understand your current financial situation. This information will guide them towards a manageable and affordable payment plan. They will also answer any questions you might have about the process.
Do you owe Capquest money?
You should be able to recognise the debt in question from the information Capquest provide. If you don’t, you should question them and find out where it has come from.
If the debt has already been repaid and you have the paperwork to prove it, it should be removed immediately.
However, if you think someone else is responsible for the account, then you need to show who and why.
It isn’t unheard of for a debt to be mistakenly applied to the wrong person. It can happen through fraudulent account setup, a debt relating to a previous occupant at your address, or mistaken identity.
How old is the debt they are collecting?
A statute barred debt is a debt that has expired after a certain amount of time.
If your account is statute-barred, it can be removed without any further repayments.
There are conditions that must be me, however. If you haven’t made a payment or had any written correspondence for 6 years (5 years in Scotland) then give us a call—you could have your account cancelled right away.
Is Capquest Debt Recovery treating you unfairly?
There are rules and regulations in place to protect you from being treated unfairly by lenders and credit providers:
- Have you been subjected to excessive phone calls and harassment?
- Are you being contacted at unsociable hours of the day or night?
- Have you received letters that look like court forms, intended to intimidate you into making payments?
- Have you been baffled by industry jargon and complicated industry terms?
- Were you advised to take out additional credit to pay off your existing debt?
- Has any debt collector discussed your case with your employer or a family member without your permission?
If any of the above sounds familiar, whether with Capquest Debt or any another debt collector, then you are entitled to protection and to make a complaint.
The Financial Conduct Authority regulates all credit and debt companies and is there to help and safeguard borrowers from being mistreated.
They will explain your rights and what you should do to resolve the situation. They will also explain what will happen, the most likely outcome, and the benefits.
