How much debt do you have?

This isn’t a full fact find. MoneyNerd doesn’t give advice. We work with The Debt Advice Service who provide information about your options.

Are Firstclear Ltd Legitimate?

Put simply, yes. In this case FirstClear are a legitimate company incorporated on 15th June 2000 and registered under company number 04018008 in the United Kingdom. Their current address is 4th Floor Imperial House, 8 Kean Street, London, United Kingdom, WC2B 4AS.

Anyone who gets a direct debit on their bank statement from a company that they may not have had dealings with before can be a cause for suspicion. It’s really good practice to make sure that the company you have received a letter from are legitimate.

Why are EUI Debt Collectors taking payments and getting in touch with me?

EUI Debt Collectors could be taking payment or contacting you for a wide variety of different reasons. Debt collection companies often collect debts for a wide range of clients.

Other companies will involve debt collection companies such as EUI Debt Collectors to reclaim any outstanding payments. In their initial correspondence, they will specify exactly who they are collecting the debt on behalf of.

For the most part, EUI are likely to be taking payments regarding an overdue or late payment from you with Admiral Insurance.

Are EUI Allowed to Chase me for Debt?

EUI Debt Collectors are allowed to chase you for debt, however the FCA have set out a series of rules and guidelines to prevent unfair lending practices. EUI must abide by these rules if they wish to continue to operate in the consumer credit industry.

These guidelines prevent debt collectors from entering your house without permission, using aggressive force to retrieve the debt or informing people other than you about the debt to name a few.

What do I do if EUI Debt Collectors get in touch?

If EUI Debt get in touch, don’t panic! It can be a cause of distress and worry if you get a letter saying that you owe money that you didn’t think you owed. You may not think you actually owe the money in the first place.

It is very rare that companies like EUI Debt Collectors send out these letters in error, so more often than not, you will owe the money that they say you owe. 

Check the details

When you get your letter, or you see a direct debit in your bank account from EUI Debt Collectors, make sure you cross-reference this with any information you can find, to ensure that the debt is correct.

In the instance where you might be confused as you actually do owe the debt, you can request a ‘Prove the Debt’ letter from them. 

Get them to prove the debt using our free letter template that could see your debt written off.

Take notes

As you go down the process of paying EUI Debt Collectors, it’s worthwhile taking notes of everything you do.

Note down the dates of each letter, if you end up having a phone call with them, take down the names of the people you speak to, if you see a direct debit take note of the amount and the date.

This will help you further down the line if they accuse you of discrepancies. 

Should I pay up if I know I owe debt to EUI Debt?

If you know for sure that the debt is yours, and you are able to pay it, you should settle it as quickly as you can.

The sooner you do this, the sooner their letters and phone calls will stop. If you can’t afford it, you may be able to negotiate a repayment scheme where you pay monthly instalments.

Checking for Other Debt Collectors

There are a lot of ways to get into debt. In fact, it’s not uncommon to owe money to several companies at once.

Perhaps you have a mortgage, a car loan, a couple credit cards and an item or two you bought on buy-now-pay-later schemes. It’s easy to lose track

That’s why it’s important to regularly check your credit report and bank statements to make sure you haven’t missed anything.

If a debt collector has purchased your debt, it appears on your credit report.

Some of the debt collectors you’re most likely to come across are PRA Group, Lowell and Cabot Financial
