Godebt/advice needed. in Debt Collection Agencies Posted February 8, 2013 Hi all, So yesterday I opened a rather well padded envelope from someone in Cardiff. Yep, you guessed it - GoDebt. Inside was a claim for £1,200 more than the original defaulted balance - which goes stature barred very, very shortly. I have already disputed the 'penalties' in my original conversation with them nearly two years ago. Also inside were three sheets of paper. One was a leaflet on how they could help me come to some arrangement if only I would call them - they would be sympathetic to my circumstances. One was a incomings/outgoings form and the last was a sheet asking for my preferred method of contact. Is this GD just looking to be seen to be doing the right thing now but still demanding 'penalties' for default over 5 years ago?
