How To Deal With Moorcroft Debt Recovery

Moorcroft Debt Recovery

This article is not exclusively about Moorcroft Debt Recovery and the Moorcroft Group. Nor is it a legal loophole to get you out of debt. Nor is it, to persuade lenders to use Moorcroft debt recovery or any of its debt solutions competitors.

What we will explain is information that is not widely distributed. Everyone talks about the law. We will talk about our inside knowledge of how debt collection companies work.

We have no axe to grind as this article will cover us, you, lenders, debt collectors and the law. In that order.

There are 100’s and 1,000’s of debt recovery companies in the UK, USA, and Australia. They all basically follow the same path. A bit like follow the money.

Table Of Contents

moorcroft debt recovery

Firstly: Information About Us

What gives us the right to talk about debt collection. We have had many roles as employees and our own business in the debt collection and lending world for 4 decades. From doorstep lending to deals worth 100’s of millions. Asset repossession to writing off debt – permanently. We give you access to the inside workings of lending and collection institutions.

Our biggest piece of information is that what man can make, man can amend. By this we mean if anyone and we mean anyone says that something cannot be done or undone – they are simply lying. Debts can be written off. Credit bureau records can be undone. The LAW can be circumvented – as long as it is in the debtors (you) favour.

Your Moorcroft Debt

Let us get this right – Moorcroft debt recovery are contacting you because you entered into an agreement. It could have been for anything: a phone, personal loan, car finance, utilities, home mortgage, boat loan, room rental. Just about anything where you had the use of something with the promise of future payments.

The first thing for you to do is simply accept your indebtedness. Do not try and become a legal expert trying to find a loophole. Debt collection companies like Moorcroft group and credit collection services have heard it all before.

Do not try and say they have no right to collect the debt. You can be sure that Moorcroft and the lender have had legal opinion on their ability to do so. There is an addendum to this that many people ignore and which we have personal (painful) experience of. The actual debt (income stream) can be assigned but not the obligations of the lender. Keep this in mind for later.

Income And Expenditure

Put some work into creating your own personal income and expenditure spreadsheet. Many debt collection agencies want you to use their version and I am sure Moorcroft group are no different.

You can create the spreadsheet over many weeks or even a month of 2. This is going to help you. Add the things they might not usually consider. Gambling, alcohol, smoking, obesity. Be honest with yourself. It might lead to a better lifestyle.

Writing things down makes it easier to deal with. It makes it easier to discuss your financial situation with debt collectors or debt attorneys. Or self help groups. There are groups in your area that can help. However, it is a good idea to be prepared.

Never, Never, Never

2 things you should not do.

  1. Never threaten violence. Keep the moral high ground.
  2. Never offer a payment you cannot make, just to keep the person on the phone happy. They get paid for promises being made. However, it is better for them and you to make an offer you can keep.

Your Original lender

The reason that Moorcroft debt recovery are chasing you is because someone lent you something. The lender will have done everything, insomuch that it can, to ensure you could repay. Although there are caveats here

  1. They were not given your real facts. Either by you or the lenders staff or introducer. There lending decision was made on the facts that they were given. They will assume that it was you, as you have signed the agreement.  It is difficult, but not impossible to prove otherwise. Notwithstanding that – if you have had use of the item or service that the credit was granted the lender can use that as a defence. However, we do not want to get involved in legal terminology.
  2. There was a large deposit made on an asset which they can quickly resell. Possibly quicker than the loan/rental term. However, this type of repossession is becoming more difficult for the credit grantor.

Notwithstanding that your debt has been sold to Moorcroft or they are collecting on behalf of your lender. The lender still has to uphold his obligations. And in turn, Moorcroft debt recovery ltd has to uphold those obligations. Generally, data protection and treating customers fairly. Once again, just because the lender has deviated a little from their obligations it might not eradicate your debt. They cam always rely on the law to enforce.

You do not want to go to court. The lender can afford better debt attorneys and collection lawyers.

Here is something that all lenders know or should know. People defaulting has rarely bankrupted a lender. Fraud is the death knell of a lender. And more often that not this comes from within or from you dealer network. Seek your savings there and not investing in better debt collection methods.

Advice To Lenders

Invest in real underwriting. Spend time there and your debt collections teams can be reduced. Put debt collectors in charge of lending. Mix up you credit and risk teams.  If you have a credit control department – close it until you have a better name for it. Maybe Good Business Creation or something – anything. 

By the by lenders – ensure that you debt recovery solution provider uses voice analysis. In addition, make sure 1 of your people who knows how it works. You can then add in your own keywords and phrases. Saves a lot of time reporting.

The Law

Debt collection law or debt recovery recourse through the courts is the last thing you want to become embroiled in. Do not cut your nose off to spite your face. The likes of Moorcroft Group and Credit Collection Services have teams of debt lawyers on their payroll or on contingency.

Unless you want to become a martyr, we suggest other ways of resolving the issue.

Remember the law gives you the minimum protection – and we mean this in a good way. Debt collectors can give you a better deal than the law allows. ALWAYS. We know, we have done it many times.

Debt Collection Solutions

In this section, we have suggestions for all concerned. Each of the suggestions are beneficial to all parties. None of these debt collection solutions favour one party.

Pre Repossession

We have to assume a few things here. You can no longer afford the car/boat/house/phone or whatever. It might sound harsh – but you can survive without this item. We know this is a hard decision. However, maybe you can obtain a similar asset or item form a different supplier. Just think about that and do a bit of research.

Here is what you want. You want debt for the current item to “go away”.

The lender or debt recovery agency want to resolve this as cheaply and quickly as possible. No matter what they say, they really do not want to go to court to have their asset returned.

Inform them that you will return their asset (car, phone, boat or whatever) on the following conditions:

  1. There will be no payment of the arrears
  2. There will be no payment requited on the shortfall of the sale of the asset
  3. All details of the loan will be removed from credit bureau register. This can be done, and it is quite easy. If the lender says they cannot do it – tell them to speak to their data controller.

It is a simple letter; here is our suggestion

Dear (lender)

Your Details

I write regarding the above. I will allow you or your agents to take possession of (describe the asset) on the following grounds.

That is it. We used this many times for people who we considered to have been hoodwinked or experienced unexpected changes to their life.

Post Repossession

Lets us tell you how much your post repossession or sold debt can be worth. We were once involved in the sale of “post repossession of distressed debt” in the UK. Fancy talk for bad debt. The average balance was £2,600 and the total balances involved were in excess of £100,000,000. It took us 8 months to put the pack together and another 6 months to “sell” to the debt purchase company. Who were similar to all debt collection companies.

The debt was sold for £1,300,000. Which is 1.3%. Add some expenses and we are at 2%. This gives you an idea of what your personal debt is worth to the debt collector. Admittedly some debt is worth more and some a lot less.

Why would a lender sell the debt to Moorcroft Debt Recovery? Their option is to completely write off. Many lenders want to lend – they do not want huge collection departments.  Debt collection is specialised. Not everyone is suited to be a professional debt collector.

The directors of the company we worked for were over the moon to get rid of 40,000 customers and pocket £1.3 million.

Negotiating With Debt Collection Company

It costs a debt recovery agency truly little to keep calling you and sending you emails. They are all automated until you do something. What does cost them, is interaction with you.

The art of negotiation is fairly simple. Start low and move slowly. Move the same amount each time, no matter what they say. It will cost them time and money to consider your offer. In addition, if you ever go to court, you can state that the lender or Moorcroft debt collection or whatever debt collection agency is obtuse.

Make them an offer in writing. “I offer you xxx in full and final payment of (describe loan/account) on or before xxx date.

Be reasonable with date. Not too short and not too long.

If you are a bit on the cheeky side, ask them to remove records. However, that is up to them. They can if they want,

Moorcroft Debt Recovery

Their motto is managing debt responsibly. Now, we have to question this.

From a purely business point of view. A lender uses risk based pricing. Therefore, it expects bad debts. If it is not using risk based pricing, it should be. If a debt goes bad it should be written off. Assume that the debtors have overextended unintentionally, or circumstances have changed.

It is in the price. Accept it and stop penny pinching. And that goes for all the other debt recovery agents in the UK. Recovery agencies in Australia and debt attorneys in the USA.

Voice Recording

Why do some debt collection companies and debt lawyers refuse to use voice analysis? It is cheaper than a team of people listening through sample conversations. It is to your advantage that calls are recorded. Many of the voice analysis recording software solutions allow audio or printed copies to be sent to you.

If Moorcroft debt are recording your conversation insist on a copy being sent to you. And that goes for any other debt collection company.

Here is what we think. They want to avoid compliance issues. Proper voice recording and analysis is difficult to manipulate.
