    Default Ironic = Could You Make It Up ?

    I posted a few weeks ago about my ex lass having money problems

    and her using a Debt Company that took 3 months of money up front before they started helping .

    Well she has now dumped that company ( but they keep ringing her up , anyway ) as she has now taken control of all her debts by ringing each creditor and coming to a lower arrangement . Pat on her back .

    Unfortunately , she has probably lost the first months £ 350 that the company suggested they would use to pay the first months debts , before she discovered that they keep 3 months cash up front as a start up fee .

    Luckily , she found out on month 1 , rather than month 3 .

    She could have lost £ 1,050 and that's before , they start getting her debts down .
    ================================================== =

    Any way as the above title says .... Ironic .

    Bearing in mind , someone gets debt help because funds are low .

    My ex phoned up Barclays and asked if they could reduce her Barclay's Loan .

    It is done by way of extending the loan by a year , so the monthly payments come down ,

    But to extend , she has to open up a new loan and shut down the old one .

    All is fine .

    Then she goes on line and finds that Barclays have credited her with ...

    £ 1,150 . .

    Aparently the old loan had front loaded costs which she had paid already until about 2014 and they refunded them due to the new loan .

    So she has gone from owing a few quid to now owning a few quid .

    It has certainly picked her up a bit from the debt doldrums .
