What Happens if I Don’t Pay My Debt to Kapama Debt Collectors?

Credit collectors can be quite nagging when it comes to collecting debt. Failing to pay your debt to Kapama may prompt constant phone calls or legal action, which may lead to loss of property.

Has Kapama Debt Collectors Violated My Rights?

Being late on a payment does not excuse harassment or abuse. As a debtor, you should know your rights in order to avoid threats or harassment compelling you to repay your credit.

A creditor or debt collector may harass you in the following ways:

  • Contacting you several times during the day, in the early morning or late at night.
  • Pursuing you on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  • Threatening you physically or verbally
  • Falsely implying that legal action has been taken against you.
  • Trying to shame you in public or using a family member or neighbour to pass messages.
  • Falsely claiming to be a bailiff in England and Wales or a sheriff officer in Scotland.

If you experience any of these events, register a complaint with the debt collection agency or the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

It should be noted that the debt collector is required to notify you of your debt reasonably, either in writing or by phone.

How Long Can Debt Collectors Collect Debt From Me?

Under the limitation act of 1980, a creditor or debt collector has up to 6 years (or 12years in mortgage) to pursue their debt. After that period, your debt becomes statute-barred and hence the limitation act can be used to write off the debt.

Getting there could be challenging because the 6 year limitation period begins from when you were last in contact with your creditors or debt collection agency.

This explains why ignoring your creditor's attempts for payment for 6 years will not have your debt written off.

How to Deal With Debt Collectors

Receiving the initial call from a debt collector can be frightening and, over time, irritating. If you receive a call claiming to be from Kapama debt collectors, follow these steps:

Verify their identityThere have been several incidents of debt collection fraud over the years. As a result, you must confirm in the debt validation letter the amount owed, the original creditor, the purpose of the debt, and the name of the debt collector.
Submit a request for verificationIf you are dissatisfied or suspect a mistaken identification, you may make a debt verification request. However, if the debt's statute of limitations is about to expire, you can wait it out and disregard the collection.

Consider other options

  1. Pay off the debtor or agree on a payment plan.
  2. Ask the debt collector not to call you. They are legally obligated to cease contacting you. However, they may counter your order with a lawsuit.
  3. Alternatively, you may specify how they should communicate with you. You may allow communication only during certain times or through your lawyer.

These options are efficient in checking credit collectors and protecting your peace of mind during their credit collection attempts.

Unfortunately, the procedures described above may be frustrating since they may take time to complete. Also, reading statutes may not be one of your strengths, hence costing you additional funds in legal fees.
