If Thames Credit Ltd are contacting you, but they are causing you stress, you do not need to put up with it. They may have the right to chase the debt, but this doesn’t mean they can hassle you to the point of causing you distress. They should not do this, and if they do, you can seek help.
See my most popular post for the guide on how to get a refund.
Are there any options available to me?
If you can’t afford to pay it back – don’t despair, as there are other options.
You can enter into an IVA, which is an Involuntary Arrangement, where you pay some of your debt, but much of it is written off. You should work out your income and expenditure and ask for advice on this, as it can prevent you from getting credit in the future, so it is quite drastic action to take.
A debt management plan is another option you may want to consider or a ‘logbook loan’, which is where your loan is secured on your car, but you still get to keep the loan and the cash. You don’t need to sell your car to get this.
Find your best debt solution
Is all this information starting to feel overwhelming? Don’t panic! I’ve put together a 4 question debt calculator so you can quickly and easily find the best solution for you. Answer the four questions now.
If you want to pay your debt off with a loan, you can use a no credit-check guarantor loan. This is where a family member or friend will sign against the loan, so if you don’t make payments, they will become liable.
If you are interested in a debt management plan, we have a range to suit you, based on your individual circumstances.

More Data On Thames Credit Ltd
It was Thames Credit who were implicated in the suicide of a 61 year-old grandmother. Thames Credit hounded her for a £16,000 debt which was not hers, and the woman was so troubled that she drowned herself (source: Daily Mail online). In fact, Thames Credit had got the identity wrong. The original loan was from GE Capital Bank and was defaulted by an unknown man 200 miles away. GE sold the debt to Thames Credit who wrongly associated the grandmother with the debt because of what it described as an “administrative error”.
From that point onwards Thames Credit’s pursuit was relentless.
After receiving letters threatening that agents would call at her home to “discuss repayment of the debt”, she became so distraught that she decided that the only way out was to take her own life.
Derbyshire South MP Mark Todd said: “We need to examine the regulation of debt collection agencies who sell debt around like a commodity.”
