On the 18th of June I received an sms stating that my Maravedi account is in the rears and a number was given to contact them. Which I did because I had no knowledge of a Maravedi account. Turns out to be a Fairdeal account. That I have no recollection of owing any out standing amounts. I asked to see the statements. On the Friday 27th of June at 15h52 I received the statements from Zanele Gladness Nxumalo| Resolution consultant. There was and large amount outstanding. The account was last paid in 2006. I tried to locate said account but with it being 8 years ago. I didn't had it. 8 years ago?? If such an amount is still on my name. Surely it has prescribed off my name? It so happens after consultation that the dept has prescribe of my name 3 years after last payment. I have never had corresponding conversation nor summonses for this outstanding account. The email I got from Zanele Gladness Nxumalo seems to read as if I have admitted to guilt of the amount outstanding. A long email from her explains where to pay the outstanding amount and the extra charges they charge for the sms and email. On Monday 30 June at 13h10 I received an email from [email protected] with a a letter of demand! My words friday I get the statement and monday I have a letter of demand! If I'm at fault and I owe this amount which I have no knowledge of. Surely said dept has prescribed off my name. The only thing for me to do is to report Shapiro Shaik Defries & Associates to the Council for Dept collectors.
