My Account

How will you contact me?

We will have your personal customer details and will write to you and telephone you. At each stage we want to talk to you and find a solution. If we call you please be confident to answer the phone, and let us have the opportunity to talk to you about your account. Alternatively follow the links on our Get In Touch page.

The balance on my letter isn't correct. What should I do?

Your previous lender has passed on their closing balance to us. This will be our starting balance and any payment history will be shown on your account. If you believe any part of your balance is not correct then you need to tell us immediately.

What will happen if you are unable to contact me?

We aim to contact you and will endeavour to do so.

If you do not contact us then we will be unable to help you to manage your account and we would need to consider a different solution to achieve the same outcome. This could lead to us instructing third parties to contact you. In some situations, where it is needed, we will consider appropriate legal action to recover the outstanding balance. It is always advisable to talk to us early and find a solution that suits you.

What if I don't think I can pay this balance?

Many of our customers are not in a position to pay their account at this time. It is important that you still contact us so we can understand this and we can offer solutions to help our customers.

I am receiving calls from you. Why?

If you are receiving calls from us, it’s because we’re trying to contact you about an account you have with us. It may be an account that we have recently purchased or it may be time to review your account. There may be other reasons, so please do answer the phone when we call or contact us via our Get In Touch page.

My account is being managed by a representative. What should I do?

We partner with a number of authorised representatives.

If you are working with a 3rd party representative then please give them a copy of our letters and they can call us with your reference number. We can simply arrange for them to redirect your payments to your account.

I would like to nominate a third party to deal with you on my behalf. What do I need to do?

If you would like to nominate an individual or an organisation to be able to discuss your account with us on your behalf, then we are more than happy to do this.

You can do this over the phone or by returning a signed copy of our 3rd party authorisation form to our PO BOX address.  Authority Form.

I have received a letter. What should I do next?

The first step to take is to talk to our helpful and fully trained Customer Consultants. We can discuss the best way forward for you and tailor a solution to help your situation. Simply Get In Touch.

How do I make a payment?

Most of our customers choose to pay by hassle free payment methods like Debit Card or Standing Order. Please refer to our Make A Payment page.

If you make a payment arrangement over the phone our Customer Consultants will ensure we set up your plan with your preferred payment method.

Which is the best repayment method to choose?

We believe that Debit Card is most suited for long-term repayment plans as it is a reliable, regular payment method that ensures that your plan will not fail as long as funds are available. This offers you peace of mind that your payments will be made on time.

Is it safe to use my debit/credit card online?

Yes – we make sure that your card details are safeguarded and encrypted, and only used with your permission.

What happens if I do not keep up my repayments?

To successfully manage your account all you need to do is keep us up to date of any changes. If you are struggling with any payments then you must contact us, ideally before the payment is missed. If you do this we can help you.

If you stop making payments and do not tell us then we cannot understand why and help you. It is imperative that you contact us to avoid further collection activity. The best solution at all times is to keep us up to date.

I want to clear my balance. How can I do this?

Your ideal position is to clear the account in full, many customers do this every day. You can make a payment via 'Make a Payment' section on this website. To talk to us follow the links in our Get In Touch page.

This Is Not My Debt

I am receiving correspondence for someone who does not live at my address. What can I do?

When we purchase an account we are provided with the address from the previous creditor. Not all customers keep their creditors up to date with their change of address and this can sometimes mean that the customer has moved. This means you may receive a letter at your address for someone who does not live there. All you need to do is tell us and we can deal with this quickly. Go to our Get In Touch page for all contact information.

I have never had an account with the lender mentioned in your letter.

If you still believe that the account does not belong to you, then you need to notify us as soon as possible. Please refer to our Get In Touch page.

This isn't my debt. What should I do?

If you believe that you are not the account holder then it is important that you tell us why. It may be because the creditor name is unknown to you or you cannot remember the debt.

If you don’t recognise it then follow the links in our Get In Touch page to call us and we can provide you with key information and check together if it is your account. It is important that you do this as this account could escalate through our collection processes.

You Have Purchased My Debt

How do I know if you really do own my debt?

If we’ve purchased your debt, then you would have received a welcome letter which informs you of the sale. Your original creditor may have  sent you a letter informing you that Cabot Financial (Ireland) Limited now own your account.

Why has my account been sold?

Many lenders will decide to sell customer accounts. This is typically once they have tried to work with you to collect the outstanding balance. If you are a customer of Cabot Financial (Ireland) Limited then your previous lender has sold your account to us. This is a normal practice and happens to thousands of accounts every year and a new relationship with Cabot Financial (Ireland) Limited begins.
