    Post Office Credit Card - Full & Final 14th Jun 17 at 11:31 AM
    I have a credit card with Post Office which defaulted but this has not been passed to a DCA. Will the post office accept a F&F or is this just when a debt has been passed to a DCA?

    Hi dieselv2,

    You can make a proposal of full and final to the post office directly, but it will be at their discretion whether or not to accept so I am afraid there are no guarantees.

    Remember the golden rules of full and final, which are, not to send any money until the terms have been agreed in writing, treat all creditors fairly and make sure you keep a copy of the letter of acceptance regarding the settlement for approximately 6 years.

    We work as money advisers for National Debtline and have specific permission from MSE to post to try to help those in debt.

    You'll need to contact the Bank of Ireland as they administer PO cards (think they still do)

    I have had a F&F for a client from them a couple of years ago and found them pretty good to deal with (compared to other banks)

    Good luck.

    Post office took 500 on a 3000 debt as full and final, it was with a DCA, who were managing it on their behalf, also marked it settled on my credit file, not partial
