  1. Hi there, First time post, i have searched the forums and although i have found similar threads there is nothing that quite suits my situation. Apologies if i have missed a thread. My situation is that my parents have received a county court claim form from Capquest regarding a debt from an RBS credit card that I had 10 years ago. I initially had forgotton completely about it but having looked through my records I have found that I made a payment to a different debt collector (Wescott) in Oct 2005. This must be the debt they are talking about. It is around £350. Having read through the forums I believe that not enough time has gone by for the debt to be written off due to the limitation act in England. As the last payment I made was in Oct 05 i understand that it could possibly be written off due to the Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973. I have spent most of my time living in Scotland apart from a year and a half in England in 2005/2006. However, and here comes the bit that has me a bit stumped, I moved to China in Aug 2008. My father scanned me the claim form and as they had been on holiday i only had a day to make up my mind what to do, i have submitted an AOS online saying i am disputing all, i hope that was the right thing to do but I thought as it was nearly 14 days i needed to do something quickly. I spoke to a representative of Capquest and they said I should just pay up but couldn't actually give me the details of the original debt! I also spoke to RBS who have no record either. My questions are : 1. As i am living in China, is there anything they can actually do? If not how do i make sure that a CCJ is not recorded on my credit record? 2. Am i able to write of the debt as it is over 5 years and i had been living in Scotland before i moved to China? 3. Do i need to speak to the court regarding my situation as i got the distinct impression from our phone call that Capquest just want the money? If anyone could help me or point me in the right direction I would be very grateful, if there is another thread which has the answers apologies again. Thank you!! G
  2. Hello, I have a Capquest "letter before action" regarding a large (over £10k) but statute-barred debt. Is it safe to ignore this at this stage and wait and see if anything happens? I have Limitation Act 1980 Section 5 letter all prepared for them, but it's difficult for me to get to a post office to use recorded delivery, so I'd like to avoid it if they're still at the fishing stage.
