Why would they contact you?
Idem Servicing will most likely contact you when chasing a defaulted loan, mortgage or other credit arrangement. Many of their clients operate in the banking sector, so your original lender could likely have been one of the high street banks.
They manage both secured and unsecured debt, through servicing and debt purchase.
If you’ve failed to make your payments, Idem Servicing will be trying to contact you to discuss how you can work together to resolve the situation.
Do you owe Idem Servicing money?
You should always check that you owe the money a debt collector says you do.
There are occasional cases of mistaken identity, fraudulent account setup, and debt being applied to a someone who isn’t responsible for the repayments.
If you have no record of the amount or the lender, then you should seek advice about how to cancel the claim.
If the debt is correct, you must contact the agency to try to repay the debt. If you can’t afford your repayments, they should work with you to come up with a plan that’s affordable for you.
How old is the debt Link is collecting?
Debts that have been inactive for over 5 years in Scotland or 6 years in England can often be disregarded.
This type of debt is known as statute barred. If your loan meets the required criteria, you could have the remaining amount cancelled. The primary conditions must show that you haven’t paid towards the debt or made written contact admitting responsibility for the required period.
If you think your debt is statute barred, it’s important to flag this and take the necessary steps to have it removed.
However, if the debt is still active, we can help you to understand the various methods to manage the remainder.
Is Idem Servicing treating you unfairly?
The Financial Conduct Authority oversees the protection of anyone involved in the credit and debt process.
If you feel that you have been treated unfairly or not in line with the rules of the CSA Code of Practice, you can make a complaint to the FCA to resolve the issue. You may even be entitled to compensation.
If you think any of the following cases apply in your situation, then it’s important to take the next step. These are only a few examples; there are many more so if you think that any of the treatment you received wasn’t fair, flag it as soon as possible:
- Using confusing, bullying or manipulative tactics
- Calling at unreasonable times
- Applying excessive charges and interest rates
- Discussing your case with anyone but you
- Not supplying information when asked
- Presenting misleading or false material
- Suggesting you take out additional credit to pay for your existing debt
