  1. The rest of the response was just giving the details of the card number to which the alleged debt relates and the date that it went into default (December 1998). Strangely though, this letter arrived today with the same date on it as one which arrived yesterday stating that the account had been put on hold pending investigation. If they were able to produce a recording of the conversation and my partner had made any admission to knowing about the debt (she is adamant that she didn't as she did not have the card to which it relates), is this as good for them as written acknowledgement?

  2. Sent the prove it letter and had a reply entitled final response, the contents of which include: 'I note that you dispute the account being owed by yourself, but I would draw your attention to the call made to our offices on the 25th February 2010, the same date as your letter, where you admitted liability for this debt and indeed made an offer of repayment.

  6. Hi everybody, please be gentle with me, I'm new to all this! My partner has recieved a letter from a debt collection agency today (connect/mackenziehall) stating that they have been instructed by their client to recover an outstanding balance of £2862.46.

My partner phoned them to find out what the debt related to and was told that the balance was outstanding on a Barclaycard from 1998, although she does not ever recall having a Barclaycard and as she has had 2 different mortgages from diff
