Question posted in the Consumer Protection Law category relating to Eastern Cape
Question value: R 200.00

Good afternoon, 

I need assistance please. I recently wrote to a law firm that is responsible for the collection of debt owed to a third party, requesting that they send me a statement showing how much is outstanding. The came back to me saying they do not provide debtors with statements, rather they can send me a schedule thereof. 

The firm says the outstanding balance is less the interest and collection fees, as they have'nt been added as yet. I would like to find out how does the landmark ruling in the Western Cape high court on 13 December 2019 affects me when it comes the issue of collections? 

Hope this will suffice.

Warm regards,
