PRA Group Debt Collector letter
Are you interested in a drastically reduced full and final payment to PRA Group Debt Collection?

Or would you like to offer a low monthly payment?

  • Please enter a number from 10 to 15000000.


The PRA Group home page has the usual happy family picture.  It encourages the visitor to make contact for “a brighter future”.

According to the debt forums, this is far from the case.  PRAGroup talk about coronavirus – they certainly don’t want you to get covid19 as dead people can’t pay!

**** AND THEY WANT YOU TO PAY ****

What the PRA Group likely want is:

  • Do extra jobs and overtime to pay them
  • NOT have holidays and fun time with your partner/children
  • Give them every penny you can find
  • Borrow money from friends and family to pay the money they claim they are owed

What the PRA group could do:

  • Send you intimidating and threatening letters about court action
  • Suggest to you they will be sending people round your house
  • Bombard you with auto dialler phone calls to your home phone, mobile and work phone continually from early morning into the evening
  • Suggest they could get you in trouble with your employer

To get help please complete the form below:

Questions and answers:

Should I pay pra group?

Not necessarily no.

A Pra group county court problem common?

For some people yes.  But they have likely put you in county court because you have told them too much, and based on what you have told them they have worked out that it’s worth throwing you in court.

Pra group statute barred debt collection – is it usual?

Yes, they always like to chase even if the debt is very old and near possible to enforce.

Is one of the known addresses for PRA Group PO box 61301 London n17 1dr?

Yes, it appears to be widely circulated on the internet.

Is a pra group full and final settlement likely to be a good deal for me?

It’s likely a very good deal for them and a terrible deal for you.

pra group reviews sometimes not great.

No!

Can you go to jail for debt UK?
