It's a shame we can't give a no star rating for these things because Vanquis don't even deserve a 1 star !! Ok i landed myself with a Vanquis credit card because i wanted to buy a car on finance and i needed the credit rating. Had a limit of £500 and only ever bought petrol on it ( most being £70 for a full tank ) and i payed it off within a week. About a year ago i had real issues with my bank which was refusing to let me put money into accounts and DD's didn't go out ( my bank took full responsibility for this ) but because of this i had Vanquis on my case DEMANDING money from me...we're talking £48 here, hardly a fortune....this is when the phone calls started.
They began ringing me at 8:40am in the morning and carried on every 20 minutes throughout the day until 9pm. I once tallied up the amount of calls i had in one day and it came to 56 !! 56 calls !! It's harassment !!
They have a million phone numbers to try and catch you out, i started to ignore them until i got a call from a number that had my area code, i naturally answered it thinking it was a friend or something...it was them. I had a woman on the other end demanding this money, i told her that i had told Vanquis about the bank situation and she said " Not my problem is it ". With that i told her to go away and if she rang me again i would contact the police...she didn't like it at all.
Seriously people if you want a credit card...stay away from these people. You make a payment to them then you get a statement within a week demanding twice as much !! They're a scam and need bringing down seriously.
Additional...i lost my card during a house move and they said i had to PAY to replace it?! STAY AWAY FROM THEM....PLEASE BRING THESE LOWLIFES DOWN
