Taking The Biscuit

I split up with my daughters dad several years ago now , I called it time after 13 miserable years ! .

Inevitabley , I still get the odd letter for him .

I've told him time and time again to change his address , but that's not going to happen when he's being chased for debts .

I get fed up with him often , and when two letters landed on my door mat yesterday , I thought sod it and opened them .

I'd had a conversation about them with my partner Simon , I'd mentioned putting them back in the post with not at this address on the front , but Simon was sure they'd come right back again like a boomerang , so I opened them .

Just as I thought , debt letters .

I was surprised though with the second letter , because it was from a company called cyclescheme .

My compulsive ( and thats's not a bitter dig ) lier of an ex , had boasted about the cost of his lovely new push bike , last year .

It did sound a bit pricey and like everything he tells me , was sure to be a tall story .

Well it definently was , as he's got it on hp , and has defaulted on the payment .

I sent him a message over messenger , I'm not best pleased atall , as this letter just goes to show that not only did he lie , which doesn't matter really , but he's obtained credit , by using my address .

Talk about taking the biscuit ! .

I woun't be standing for any more of these letters . They can be quite intimidating , threatening doorstep action .

It's time my ex sorted out his finances , I have creditors but I've cut the debt I owe by regular interest free payments .

Sorry to read your news. You should phone or email the company concerned and tell them that your ex has lied and isn't at your address.

He definitely should do something about it. This is one of those uncomfortable situations, I sympathize.

The person who owned our place a few years ago skipped and defaulted on thousands of pounds worth of debt. I was very happy to phone up the debt company and tell them that, I can tell you. If you know where your ex lives, you may be able to phone the companies and drop him right in the doggy's doings by giving them his new address. Then they can chase him there. His debts, not yours. You should have no requirement to be involved. Might also be an idea to contact Experian and the other credit companies to update them too.

It´s possible that your address and you could be credit blacklisted because of this. We had it happen to us after leaving the pub and i was refused credit on something just because of our address, not anything to do with a bad credit rating on my account xx
