What do you mean by NID?
It states in their letter that I should have court documents,however to avoid any further expenses should make payment to them as decree will be granted?
I have had nothing from court as of today,only the letter from them yesterday.
Do you think they are playing games again as they first threatened me 7 months ago but never went to court then,so why now as I am aware many of these debt collectors do not have original paperwork which is needed.
I have received nothing with "initial writ" on it.
The letter is from the solicitors on company headed paper.
It came 2nd class post and reads.
Arrow Global V You
As you have failed to pay out clients account we have today served a Writ upon you by recorded delivery post.
Should you not dispute the debt then you are now liable to pay the sum shown below which includes Judicial expenses and interest.
To avoid decree passing against you please return the slip below with your remittance or failure to do so will result in Sheriff officers etc etc.
Finally we refer you to the court document now served upon you which details your right to make representations to the court and if appropriate pay the debt in instalments.
if you are in doubt contact a solicitor or CAB etc.
