Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I understand you are being pursued by debt collectors acting on behalf of a dating company. How much are they wanting you to pay?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now. I will get back to you with my full reply on here; usually the same day and the system will notify you when this happens.
I should also make you aware that this is not always an instant service, due to various legal engagements I could have and I may not be able to reply immediately. However, rest assured that I will be dealing with your query and will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, it is appreciated. I am now pleased to be able to provide further assistance with your query. First of all, I am sorry to hear about the issues brought up by this. It must be a frustrating situation to be going through.
Despite what is happening now with your situation, I would not change your approach compared to what we discussed previously. They would likely up the pressure by making further threats and mentioning court, etc but in the end it means nothing. You can only be forced to pay them if they actually go to court and are successful with their claim, which is very unlikely, especially considering the way they operate the site and how they make it pretty much impossible to cancel. A clear scam like this will not be looked upon favourably by the courts so the chances of them going to court, let alone winning a claim, are extremely remote. As such, I would say to retain the same approach and ignore any correspondence from them.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
I trust that everything has now been dealt with to your satisfaction and your original question has been resolved. If you have any further queries about it, please do not hesitate to get back to me on here. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
Hello again and thank you for your further queries, which I will be more than happy to answer. There is nothing stopping them from sending someone to your house but they wil have no power to collect anything without a court order. This means they must go to court first where you will get a chance to defend yourself, before they convince a court they are right and get a court order in their favour. Only if you do not ay it will they eventually be able to send bailiffs round your property with powers to make you pay.
I have had numerous other people in the exact same situation with you, the same company even, and no one has actually been taken to court over it.
If they make a claim, you will be issued with notification of the claim and have the chance to either accept it, or defend it. If you defend it then it will be scheduled for a hearing in the future and you will have the chance to attend to argue your case, before a decision is made.
You have 7 days to ask short follow up questions on here, after which you need to start a new question. Thanks
