  1. Need a bit of help with an old Barclaycard debt that has been passed onto Robinson Way A bit of back story... In 1998 when I started college, Barclays were targeting students and offering them free mobile phones (this is before everyone had them!). I knew that Barclaycard's interest rate was pretty bad compared to most, so almost never used the card and had a direct debit set up to pay the minimum balance (standard student mentality). Fast forward to a couple of years ago... I hadn't seen any statements in years, but Barclaycard send me a notice of default to say that my direct

  4. Hi all I've received a letter of claim from Howard Cohen acting on behalf of Hoist portfolio Ltd. The debt relates to a former Barclaycard that started in June 2008 and later defaulted in in Dec 2013 (according to my noddle credit file). I was self employed at the time and quickly became over indebted at the time. The default amount is £12,500 and last payment made was March 2013. I've uploaded a redacted letter of claim I received recently. I received a very similar letter in Dec last year which I ignored and did not hear anything until now - the same request letter
  5. I have today received a CCJ claim from the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre, for a credit card that was held with HSBC a few years ago. The last statement I can find for the account is 2009, although the assignment to the DCA was later than that date. Having read through the forums for some advice (which is very handy and I'm very grateful for) I'm going to write to them tomorrow with a CPR31.14 requesting the agreement, default notice and the assignment. From people's past experiences, what are the chances of them providing this information? And do they have t
  6. Good afternoon, Any help would really be appreciated. This relates to a loan that was taken out years ago and prior to 2009. I cannot be more precise at this moment. I got into financial difficulty and defaulted on the payments. This has been in the hands of a number of companies. I do not recall getting regular correspondence and I believe the last payment ever made was 2014. This has dropped off my credit file. I did receive a letter I August 2015 to say that I was entitled to redress on my loan as the discovered following changes of CCA (1/8/08) that they

  18. I am really grateful for this Forum. I am watching other people's reports with great interest so I thought I would share my own and see if I could garner some advice along the way. I am currently a Student with some Debts carried forward from a crisis past where I lost my home. I am pretty much on route to starting over. I never took the BR option but was hoping to wait out the clock ( didn't have any other options ) on some of the debts and deal with what I could. It is probably close to the 6 Year mark and this is the first one to go for a CCJ. If they succeed it will be detrimen

  21. Just got back from holiday and I have a court letter sitting waiting for me Stopped paying this a fair while ago due to lack of funds but unsure actually how long ago. I've had no contact with them directly for ages it may possibly be over 6 years but not sure. I've had letters and it's skipped round the DCAs who I've ignored. Letter is dated 7/5/15 I intend to acknowledge later today on MCOL and I will send Howard Cohen a CCA request as a matter of course. I'm also inclined to send Santander a SAR Request as well but imagine my time to do anything is now limite

  25. Hello, I wonder if anyone can help, please? My wife and I have some oustanding debt from various old Credit Cards/Store Cards/Loans etc. All of which went to bad debt around 2004 when our circumstances changed. One of my wife's old debts was taken over by CL Finance, which was then passed to their Howard Cohen side of the business.
