Debt in Dubai I am sure you have heard many. I am in a situation that for 2 years I have had to fight all the collection agencies, banks abusing me and threatening me here in the UK whilst trying to pay my debt off.
I owe nearly £80,000 a lot and I do not think I will ever be able to pay this with the interest. Recently Coyle White Devine solicitors who seem to have jumped on the bandwagon on collecting debt from UK nationals who used to live in Dubai contacted me and issued me with one banks debt.
I have replied to them asking for all my documents and also asked under the treaty which they say they can collect the debt if the law also takes into consideration the abuse and threats I have received also. I understand i have to pay a debt but its in the UAE and i think it is unfair that they can enforce a CCJ on my file for that yet get away with having the banks and collection agencies in Dubai abusing people.
Hope it makes sense
How can a debt registered in the UAE be enforced in the UK and have a CCJ put on your file from the UK Based solicitors without taking into consideration the unlawful tactics used by the banks and collection agencies ?”
Just a couple of questions.
I am assuming you are now living in the UK?
Have you discussed any repayment options for the debts? Can you afford to repay anything?
I cannot comment on unlawful tactics used to collect a debt or any thing dealing with the law, however if a debt is sold from another country to a collector in the UK, they own the debt and can then collect it in accord with the laws of that country. Which for UK residents is better than trying to have it collected in some countries where the collection practices are harsh, and prison may be involved.
If this solicitor’s office own the debt, then they can collect it here in the UK. This also allows you all the “debt scheme” resources available to UK residents. This means you can look at debt management plans, Individual Voluntary Arrangements, or possibly bankruptcy. All of which can help you either repay the debt, or have it discharged.
Let me know, and we will look at this in more detail.
