  1. Hi dx100uk, Bankfodder. I have just danced around my kitchen with a big (relieved) smile on my face! A letter has just arrived from PRA Group in response to my SB letter and it confirms that the debt has become statute barred and Is now closed on their system. Also, not they or any other party will make contact in future. A massive thank you for all your help!!
  2. Thanks Bankfodder for the quick reply this has been on my mind all Weekend! when you Say they will be able to have any claim on any PPI payouts do you mean will not be able to? i’ll get the letter sorted and sent. Is there a new/latest statue barred letter template someone can point towards please?
  3. Hi All, Been a while since I’ve posted on the forum. Firstly, I must say how much this community has helped me through some very stressful times in my life. A BIG THANK YOU!! My question is relating to a Sold debt to PRA Back in 2004, which I did pay towards until December 2012. Fast forward to 2016 I move house and started checking PPI on old accounts. after contacting Lloyds I was successful with redress directly to me for a number of old personal loans. Moving on to 2018 PRA start calling me work mobile phone and I block the calls, which bounce to my voicemail and I pick up a recorded voice on voicemail asking for me to contact PRA. This is the only communication I’ve had since moving house. Now a letter has turned up at my new home address saying they have been recently made aware of my new address and want me to of course Contact them either way if I’m the correct person or not. So, can anyone help give their experience to whether they are just fishing because they have a large sum to try collecting on or whether they would be aware of any linked PPI payout even when the debt was sold (assigned absolute)? Additionally, if they are theoretically aware of a PPI claim, which was paid out to me does it acknowledge the original debt affecting the clock towards statue barred? Should I also send a statue barred letter to ‘test the waters’? apologies for the long windedness of my post. I would really appreciate some feedback and guidance on this matter.
  4. Hi Noneprovided, Has anything be heard from PRA since your CCA request? All the best iwcmd.
  5. Thanks dx, Bit more background on my Lloyds situation: I left an old current account with a big overdraft oweing, which was due to loan payments being constantly taken with no money going in. I don't have a current account with them now only mortgage and personal loan. Would SAR to LLOYDS stir any trouble for my existing facilities I.e. What is the likelihood they would put 2+2 together? Also being so old surely I have no chance with PPI reclaim? Many thanks. Iwcmd.
  6. This is my worry - been over thinking the situation and starting to be all I think about everyday. Thanks again and look forward to input from others hopefully. Iwcmd.
  7. Thanks for the quick response martin2006. Forgot to mention my current credit facilities are also with Lloyds.
  8. Hi all, Been sometime since I posted and always an avid follower of CAG, which has seen me through some tough times! A long story short is I am now (touch wood) in a better position financially with a clear credit file and manageable credit facilities (loan,credit card) including mortgage. I do however have one old debt that I need advice on: Around 1998 - 2000 I took out a big loan for around £20k and then a second a year or so later for around £10k (young and in experienced). Defaulted both around 2003/4, sold to Thames Credit/Atkiv now PRA and dropped off credit file 2009/10. I did get collared in 2004/5 into paying £100/month until 2012 when it became too much with other financial responsibilities (CSA payments). I only hear from them every 3-6 months offering 70% discounts. My worry is I am fortunate to move house this year and will not be able to monitor correspondence letters upto the SB timeframe and could miss further action being taken, which I want to avoid if possible. I know some people will think its my own fault however my wife and children have nothing to do with this debt from my previous life/ relationship and I don't want to risk messing our good credit up or even worse losing our new home if it went further than ccj. Any advice on what to do please? Should I CCA PRA now to see if they have anything on file or wait until later 2017 (I have the opportunity to re-direct post for 12 months)? thank you for your time in reading my post. BR Iwcmd.
  9. Morning all, Been thinking about this and would I get a threat of court action before any proceedings ? Basically what is the likelihood of going straight from maybe/if letters to court papers without notice? The waiting game is so agonising !
  10. Thanks again for coming back to me on this. I understand what your saying. Best not poke the ashes to end up restarting the fire. I know I'm nowhere near some of the peoples situations on here, although I'm still nervous as the SB approaches wondering if Cabot will do something devious. With CAG support I've gone through some really tough times - ccj's, pressure and stress from multiple DCA's (almost giving into going bankrupt) and managed to come out the other-side clear credit file, able to get credit again and now even considering moving house next year! Anyway, long story short this site has helped me more than i can say. Keep up the good work and I keep my fingers crossed for the future with Cabot. iwcmd.
  11. Thanks DX for the fast reply. Would it still be worth sending some sort of letter to them after SB date stating statute barred, so they confirm it back to me? I'm visiting my parents during the SB date, so thinking to prepare a letter and send recorded delivery while I'm away. Any thoughts or comments are much appreciated. All the best Iwcmd.
  12. Hi All, Been some time since I posted here. Cabot have been sending the basic 'you owe' letters every 3 to 4 months, however today I've received a notice of arrears 'statement' with reference information about financial conduct authority. I have not paid anything to them or acknowledged the debt since being tricked into paying back in August 2008. My question is I have 2weeks until statute barred, so in anyone's experience with Cabot should I be extra worried or expect any sudden court action to be taken or is this just another way of trying to make me contact them? I'm hoping to send a final do not acknowledge letter in 2 weeks and stating it is also past the statue barred limit. Any advice is much appreciated. iwcmd.
  13. Hi BRIGADIER2JCS I hope all is well for you. I am going o send a SB letter to 1st Credit now as its past the 6 years for no payment / no acknowledgement. My question I need your input on is should I use the standard SB letter bearing in mind it references 'not having heard from the DCA in the time period and no communication with them from me' however I have CCA'd and SAR'd them, so should I change the wording on the standard CAG SB letter? Or do you have any modified SB letter templates that would be more appropriate? Many thanks for your assistance. all the best, iwcmd.
  14. Hi guys, Thanks for your input on this. Indeed, my credit file has no adverse history on it anymore and all my current financial liabilities are up to date. Regarding the letter I received back from Cabot it states the enclosed docs are copies of their response to my cca request back in 2010, however these documents contain the following: - Paragraph - 'This is a copy of your agreement' - Paragraph - Halifax credit card conditions of use - A previous address, however not the original address where I lived when the application was done. - One set of Interest rates on balance transfers, cheques, cash advances and purchases etc. - no other interest rate information. - No signature - no credit limit - no statements (or only the cabot printed statemet on the silly payment I made to cabot underpressure in 2008) The cover letter goes on to say: 'We confirm we have already sent a recon true copy of your cca in 2010 and for the avoidance of doubt complies with the consumer credit (cancellation notices and copies of documents) regulations 1983 and therefore complies with the obligations set out n section [77 -78] of the consumer credit act 1974. I have shortened some of the above sentence words. Also, interestingly they do not ask for payment or get back in contact in XX amount of days, which I find weird? Just the standard ' if you have any further queries, do not hesitate to contact me' Any ideas of help on how to handle this will be really appreciated. Many thanks. iwcmd.
