Im gettimg charged ridiculous prices in overdraft fees and interest. Some of my friends have just changed their personal details and closed their bank accounts. I ve tried to work out a reasonable payment plan but they are obviously making too much money out of me to come to a civil agreement. I believe that if i do close my account the debt will then go ro a 3rd party debt collectors. Can they then officially take me to court? I know this will have a huge impact on my credit scores too, but im beyond worrying about that at this stage! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
