From: D Dahya

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

Could you explain why NZTA have failed to provide notification of an apparent debt incurred by me (a member of the public) and then passed the debt on to a debt collection agency(Milton Graham) to enforce it. Who themselves are unable to provide that requested information because NZTA have,in turn, refused to provide that information to them?

About 2 months ago on receipt of this letter advising of the debt I immediately asked to for clarification and further information on it - despite repeated emails to Milton Graham they have not responded acknowledging the request or providing the information.

I would like to know if this debt has been registered my credit file?

I am unaware of any amount owing to NZTA, nor am I aware of any notification from them of this debt and so took reasonable steps to obtain clarification on it.

About 2 months ago on receipt of this letter advising of the debt I immediately asked to for clarification and further information on it - despite repeated emails to Milton Graham they have not responded acknowledging the request or providing the information.

I initially asked the debt agency for the following information to which I received no response at all;

1- Please place the account in dispute.

2- Provide the reason for this debt

3- When was the debt first created & when was it passed to you (Milton Graham)

4- Outline the steps taken by NZTA to contact me regarding this debt.

5- Copy of my file/all info on your system/records etc regarding this debt.

In July, on receiving no contact from them at all, my last email to Milton Graham I advised 'As I have not received a response to this email I will consider this matter closed and that you have reflected that in your records otherwise if you could provide a response by the end of this Thursday.'

After 2 months, since my request for information from Milton Graham, of no contact with me whatsoever I, once again , receive the identical debt letter.

I ask the following questions;
1- Could you please outline the process/steps taken to advise members of the public of any overdue amounts with NZTA prior to passing it on to a collection agency?

2- Are you required to send written/email notification of the amount owing prior to passing it to a debt collection agency for enforcement?

3- Why no notification of amount owing from NZTA was sent to me(member of the public) directly?

4- Why was the debt passed to a collection agency for enforcement prior to notifying me of the debt?

5- By passing it to a debt collection agency are you aware that it would affect one's credit rating?

6- Why have you refused to provide the requested information/clarification to your delegated debt agency on an outstanding debt marked for enforcement?

Your sincerely

D Dahya

Subject: Official Information request - NZTA refuse to provide
information/clarification on apparent money owing to them.

 

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

 

Could you explain why NZTA have failed to provide notification of an
apparent debt incurred by me (a member of the public) and then passed the
debt on to a debt collection agency(Milton Graham) to enforce it. Who
themselves are unable to provide that requested information because NZTA
have,in turn, refused to provide that information to them?

 

About 2 months ago on receipt of this letter advising of the debt I
immediately asked to for clarification and further information on it -
despite repeated  emails to Milton Graham they have not responded
acknowledging the request  or providing the information.

 

I would like to know if this debt has been registered my credit file?

 

I am unaware of any amount owing to NZTA, nor  am I aware of any
notification from them of this debt and so took reasonable steps to obtain
clarification on it.
