What To Do If You Get A Nasty Letter or Phone Call From:

The Lewis Group Ltd

Flight Delay Compensation Claims

 

Lewis Group is a debt purchasing company or debt collecting company listed in the website of DBSG (The Debt Buyers and Sellers Group) and/or mentioned in consumer finance forms. They have a legitimate function as debt collectors, but there is some indication that some such companies (not necessarily Lewis Group), and especially the debt purchasing element, go a bit too far sometimes and can make people's lives a misery when those same people are at their most vulnerable. We do not suggest that they are acting outside the law, but getting that letter or phone call is not exactly helpful to you right now.

So the first thing you must do if Lewis Group is bothering you is not to panic or despair. That's just what they want! They'd love you to call their number and speak to their specially trained sales team for 'advice'. But once you do that you'll be suggestible to whatever they tell you, instead of getting independent advice. While we always say that you should keep an open dialogue with debt collectors, we would recommend that you do so in writing only. This will prevent them 'railroading' you into any action which is not in your best interests, as they so love talking people into doing things on the spur of the moment. Of course, they are only doing their job, but that's hardly a consolation for you in the present situation.

There are several courses that are open to you, and some will suit your own situation better than others.

A sensible option, we would suggest, is a debt management plan or even an IVA - which is designed to actually write off a large chunk of your unsecured debt. But you would need to take advice on this and look at your income and expenditure in detail. This option won't suit everyone. There's more on this below.

For an alternative type of loan you could apply for a 'logbook loan' which many people find a very handy option. It is actually a loan secured on your car, except you get to keep the car and keep the cash as well! That's why some people find it such a good idea, as it unlocks the equity in your vehicle without taking away your means of transport (there's no need to sell the car). To apply for a logbook loan click here.

Yet another option is a no credit-check guarantor loan. This is especially useful because your own credit rating is not looked at; you must find someone else willing to act as a guarantor for you such as a friend or family member. This is an ideal solution if you're at the stage where your credit profile has been downgraded by recent events, etc. So click the following link for Unsecured Loans that don't need you to be credit checked.

If you wanted to try a debt management plan, then we provide a whole-of-market service, with a number of debt management experts on our panel. So whatever your circumstances, your application will find the plan for you, meaning the optimum outcome for your situation. It also means there are no minimum requirements for debt levels or income.

So apply for a debt management plan using the form below.

Lewis Group and the Truth About Your Debt

The Lewis Group Limited is a debt collecting agent which has bought a delinquent account from the original creditor, often a bank for about 10% or less of the original value and is attempting to recover the full sum of the original from you.

The Lewis Group Ltd will use all sorts of methods to get you to set up a direct debit or standing order so that they can make a quick profit. You may already have had bad and terrifying experiences of them. They may phone you at strange times and do so several times a day. They may write you official appearing sternly worded letters or cards threatening to 'send the boys round' to collect the amount in full or take you to court for the full amount. Other tricks will include attempting to make a charging order on your home or in some way bring about your destitution.

So ask Lewis Group for a copy of the original contract when you took out your loan or credit card.

To find out if you qualify for an IVA or can benefit from a debt management programme, try the IVA Test. It's free to apply, and again you are protected by the consumer laws regarding debt management at all stages. Click here to go to the application form.
