What to Do if You Are Struggling to Pay a Debt With Scotwest Credit Union

As a credit union, Scotwest is more inclined to work with customers who are having problems with debt. If you are having problems with debt with Scotwest, one of the best things you can do is contact them and explain your situation. 

Scotwest is known for having long wait times on the phone– email is probably the most efficient means of communication. While they try hard to help customers overcome debt problems, delinquent accounts will be turned over to collection agencies.

It will be much easier to work out a reasonable plan with Scotwest versus a collection agency.

Scotwest works with countless nonprofit and government agencies that help people who are behind on debt. You can find a list of these agencies on the Scotwest website

What if Scotwest Credit Union Already Transferred My Debt to a Collection Agency?

There are a few different paths you can choose based on your specific scenario.

If the Debt is More Than Five Years Old

  1. If the debt is older than five years, you are likely eligible for debt forgiveness via Statute-Barred debt laws. (The rest of the UK outside of Scotland mandates six years.)
  2. DoNotPay can help verify that old debts are removed from the books (more details below).

The Debt Isn't Yours

  1. Debt collectors are known for making clerical errors.
  2. If you are certain the debt isn't yours, then you'll want to send a Prove It Letter.
  3. If there is a slight misspelling of your name for a debt that isn't yours, you'll still want to send a Prove It Letter.
  4. If the name on the debt is completely different than yours, simply inform the collection agency that they have the wrong person.

The Debt Is Yours and Is Under Six Years Old

  • It is still far better to work with Scotwest than the debt collector, but this may no longer be possible.
  • Contact Scotwest and ask if you can work out the debt directly with them instead of the debt collector. 
  • If they say no, then you have no other choice but then to work with the debt collection agency.

Common Problems Working With Debt Collectors

  • Debt collectors are well known for being aggressive.
  • Additionally, they tend to not follow consumer protection rules.
  • If you are being harassed by a debt collector, DoNotPay can help. We can even draft a Prove It Letter on your behalf.

Get Help With DoNotPay

DoNotPay can help in a variety of ways when it comes to debt collection. We will ask you a series of questions about your situation and provide a recommended course of action.

Depending on your scenario, we can submit a Prove It Letter to the collectors, demand that the collectors stop contacting you or file a formal complaint to the appropriate governing body.

To get started, simply follow these three easy steps:

1. Search for the "debt collection" product on DoNotPay.

 

2. Answer some questions about the debt collectors, including when and how you were contacted. That will help us determine if any regulations were broken.

 

3. After providing you with recommended guidance, you get to choose what you think the best course of action is.
