Do you need help with STA International?

Are you receiving letters from STA International? Are they sending letters to your home address or your place of business? Do STA International send you text messages or bombard your home phone and your mobile phone with calls at all different times of day? You may even notice that STA International call you from a number of different phone numbers, some may even display as local phone numbers to where you live.

Will STA International come to my house to collect debts?

STA International may have appointed field agents to make home visits to discuss the alleged debt. These visits can be very distressing not only for the person who is the named debtor, but for the entire family. These methods can have a detrimental effect to your mental and physical health, and to the people around you.

These are all very common tactics which STA International use to get in touch with the people who owe them money. Without appointing a debt company to represent you, this may continue.

As a long-established independent debt website, we have a vast experience of dealing with creditors such as STA International. We understand the tactics that they use, and we can work with you to get them to stop.

How will STA International chase me if I don’t pay?

Creditors such as STA International use computer systems (often known as customer relationship management systems) to keep on top of their debtors. They often follow a debt process which will make them the most profit. These methods are often seen as aggressive and you may have seen documentaries and news articles criticising the heavy-handed nature of debt collectors and bailiffs. Although the Government have come some way to reduce their powers, the main tactic continues: intimidation.

The first point of contact which STA International may use will be an introductory phone call and letter. This is to set out their pre-action protocol. You will usually receive (in writing) a letter explaining the total amount of debt owed, any charges/penalties which may have been accrued and a tight deadline for you to repay the debt in full. The letter will usually mention what steps will happen if you do not pay the debt in full. These steps are usually:

  • A home visit
  • A county court judgement (CCJ), issued by STA International if you fail to repay the debt within this tight deadline
  • A threat of bankruptcy (usually if the debt is over £750)

Letters like this are very standard with every credit provider and not just STA International. It is important to not take these letters personally. There is help at hand, but you should act quickly.

What rights do STA International have?

Any company which chases customers for outstanding debts have to follow a very strict code of conduct. In our opinion, this still needs to be tightened up as it seems to rely on intimidation. This is usually demonstrated by the field agents who visit your home. The field agents are usually male, large in stature and they try to command authority with their tone of voice and actions.

But in reality, companies such as STA International are only interested in collecting as much money back in debts as they can. The welfare of the debtors is usually the last thing on their mind.

STA International can exercise the following rights:

  • STA International can send letters to addresses where they think that you live, including new addresses which you have not provided to them
  • STA International can call you on phone numbers which they believe you to have access to
  • STA International can visit you at your home, or appoint representatives to visit you at home
  • STA International can add charges, interest and penalties in accordance with the original agreement you entered into
  • STA International may have the “right to offset”. This usually happens in situations when you have a debt with a bank, but you may also have money held within that same bank (for instance a credit card and a current account)
  • If you do not pay on time, STA International may register a default on your credit file. This sometimes happens very quickly, but you should be given notice of this upfront. If a default is registered on your credit file, it has a very negative effect on your credit rating and your ability to gain credit in the future
  • STA International can apply for a county court judgement (CCJ). If a CCJ is registered on your credit file, it has a very negative effect on your credit rating and your ability to gain credit in the future
  • If your debt with STA International is over £5000, they can issue a statutory demand. This is usually the first step in petitioning for your bankruptcy. You would need to appoint a legal representative (usually a solicitor) to represent you in these circumstances.

What rights do I have against STA International?

As a citizen of the United Kingdom, you are given certain rights to protect you and your family’s wellbeing.

  • STA International can not harass you. They contact you as many times as they want as long as this is ‘reasonable’. This does not have any solid definition but be assured that this means that you should not feel harassed by STA International. You cannot use this as a defence to avoid repaying your debt. You can ask that STA International only contact you in writing, but if you do this you must make sure that you are responsive to these letters.
  • STA International cannot speak to your family, friends or neighbours about your debts. This is in line with UK data protection laws.
  • STA International cannot pretend that they have powers which they do not possess. In the past creditors have used documents which look like official court document. A law has passed to prevent this happening now.
  • STA International cannot be threatening, abusive or tell lies to collect debts.
