  1. Hi.. .have received a reply from Barclaycard, they have sent a copy of Barclaycard conditions Leaflet, NO signature in fact NOTHING. their letter states sorry for delay, and goes on "The information we must provide to you under the terms of Section78 is prescribed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and by the Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notice and Copies of Documents) Regulations 1983. .This completes our obligation to you under section 78 of the CSA 1974. As I see it they have not complied with my original request for a signed copy of the original agreement
  2. Hi, I have a debt which was with Barclaycard originally back in the 90's, roughly £7k. I got into trouble a few years ago when I was ripped off by an investment company who put me out of business and stole several thousand pounds from me. I was advised to use Step Change in 2016 to sort out 4 debts in total. I was not aware that this system would only last for 1 year ( paying a nominal sum per month to each debt) and that afterwards I would be back to square one. After it ended I was abroad working for a few months and was not receiving my mail. Now I seem to have Link F
  3. I took out 3 loans 96-99. I never repaid as I didn’t earn enough. I didn’t defer for the years 12-17. I got a letter to defer in 2017, when I did it, they said it was too late and it has been passed to link. I have been hounded for nearly two years. I am not in a position to pay it back. now they have said I have to reply within seven days or else. What can I do? If anything?
  4. Please can someone help. I have Link Financial writing to me about my deceased father owing them money. They have been sent death certs already but have now addressed a statement to him at 'my house.' The letter talks to him - saying 'behind on payments. They are lunatics. They have had (and acknowledged x2 death certs). I have written to them saying I believe that debt is statute barred and that my father has died. They waited months with no communication and now this. Shall I just return to sender?
  5. I have just received a letter from turnbull solicitors (working for HFO!). They state they have now obtained a charging order on my property. They took me to court early last year and I sent a defence to the courts but could not take it any further because Turnbull refused to give me any information requested. The proceedings went ahead regardless then I had notice that they were applying for a charging order. I immediately applied to set the judgement aside and after 2 months had the court papers returned informing me that the case had been moved to another c
  6. Hi I started a Ppi claim with Lloyds a few weeks ago there were 9 old loan account from 1992 to 2000 with Ppi. I should have my response in Aug. But this week I have received 2 letters in the same envelope to old address even though Lloyds have new my address due to claim. One is from Lloyds saying they have sold my debt to asset link the other from asset link. I know there's a Lloyds charge on my old house from 2006 (ex wife and kids live there but my sole mortgage) as its on land registry. Any one know why I've been sent letter? I assumed they wou
  7. Hi i wonder if anyone can give me advice. I have received two summons from link financial ref to old defaulted ex barclay credit card debts. Can anyone give me any advice as to how to go about and what to do please? Any advice will be highly appreciated.
  8. Hello all - my first post, and Id really appreciate a little advice. I had a letter from Link offering 50% off my 3 accounts with them as partial settlement. The accounts would then be closed with no further monies owed. The debts are over 6 years old so not on file. I have been in discussion with them about closing the accounts for a while. Im not working due to health issues, and payments have been frozen for about 2 months. My partner has offered to pay from her savings. I offered 65% but they came back with the 50%. Its not a huge difference but its still a
  9. Hi I would be grateful for a little bit of help, or confirmation that I'm on the right tracks for putting my case forward to DLA for mandatory reconsideration please. It involves the past presence test, genuine sufficient link test etc. Basically I really could do with someone showing me where to find the relevant decision makers guidance and confirming whether what I'm going to write is correct. I have found some DMG but I don't know if its up to date, so Ill need to ensure I link the correct DMG paragraphs etc to support my claim. Basically we do not meet the past presence test as
  10. I am looking for some advice regarding removal of Arrangement to Pay markers and a default from my credit report. I have an outstanding balance of £3486.90 with Link Financial who took on the account from Barclaycard in February 2015. Barclaycard applied markers to my credit report from April 11 to February 15 when they marked the account as settled, following an SAR it doesn't appear the account was ever formally defaulted. I was on a DMP until recently when I sent a section 78 request to Link and stopped paying. They did not comply with the request and subsequently issued

  12. hello, i have been a Barclay card holder for 20 years , six years ago I had to pack up work and could no longer afford the full monthly repayments I phoned Barclaycard and we came to an agreement that I could repay a fixed amount per month and that they would cancel the intrest, as I say this was six years ago, does anybody know why now they would transfer my payments over to asset link(no5) limited, and not just continue to receive payment themselves, ,,strange

  14. Hi I am looking for some help in identifying what the correct default date should be on an old debt from Barclaycard. I went into arrears on a Barclaycard account during 2011 and the debt was transferred to IDR/Link Financial Outsourcing in March 2012. There was no default issued to the credit reference agencies by Barclaycard before it closed the account and transferred it to Link, who subsequently registered a default in September 2012. However, having gone through old paperwork whilst preparing a CCA request, I have found a default notice (section 87(1)) from Barclaycard (vi
  15. As expected an Recorded Signed for Sar was sent to them at the beginning of January, they well outside of their 40days to supply, all that occured within that 40 days is they made a call to the alleged debtor asking that they contact them ( I advised they ignore said calls and to wait for the Sar) No Sar has arrived What next?

  17. Hi everyone I hope I've posted this in the correct forum as I'm back again just looking for advise and general pointing in the right direction. I've received a letter (PDF attached) and presume at this stage all I can do is send a CCA request to Link? Do I send a SAR to Link and MBNA or just to MBNA as they were the original creditor? Regards Suss Link.pdf
  18. yesterday I had a case dismissed in the County Court brought by IDR via Kearns. A quick run down of the case: Following the sale of a Barclaycard debt to IDR, a letter was received from Link demanding money together with a default placed on my credit record. [removed] I challenged the allegation. This seemed to put them off - or so I thought. A year later I received a hearing letter via the Northampton courts and subsequently submitted a defence. This led to the case being successfully stayed. At this point I submitted a CCA and S78 request to Link via Kearns. K
  19. Hello all, I have received a letter from Link Financial with regards to a Barclaycard account. They advise my payment of £1 has not been received. I have checked my bank account, and the payment has definitely gone out, its on a standing order to be paid every month. Should I ignore this letter? I suspect its a ploy to get me to contact them.
  20. Hi, I had a credit card debt with Barclaycard that defaulted. It was then sold onto Link Financial, who I've been paying a £100 a month to for the best part of 2 years. I CCA'd the debt a while ago and they produced some paperwork with my signature and address, etc... Due to a change in circumstances, I stopped the payments 3 months ago and I'm trying to arrange a full and final settlement to clear the debt. They're currently not interested in negotiating, but I know this process can be slow. (Maybe quicker if they're not getting any more out of me each month) As I
  21. I've been sorting through some old paperwork and have realised I had a Link MBNA debt that I defaulted on in 2008 for £8,000 ! Naturally this has long gone from my credit file, but Link still have my old address. Is there still a danger of a backdoor CCJ after this long? The last payment was made in 2008 so it is certainly statute barred. It's also a pre 2006 agreement. Should I ring Link Finance and give them my current address? or let sleeping dogs lie on this one. I'm about to buy a house and don't want someone knocking on my door with a charging order at some point in the futu
  22. Good Evening all, I was wondering if someone could help me with an issue I have about a Barclaycard that I opened in 2005. I build up a balance of around £4000 but paid it off in full in March 2012, I have clear evidence of this as I kept most of the statements and you see the balance goes form £4000 to £0000 (although the statements do not say payment received). I also have 22 following months statements with a balance of £0000. I did not use the account after I paid it off (cut up the card) and after receiving nearly 2 years of statements, they suddenly stopped and I thought
  23. Very good link for free credit report from Martin lewis. Quite recent too not like some of the other free ones http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/creditclub?_ga=2.51313065.101823794.1503503150-982205561.1477396387
  24. Hi, In 2005 I developed long term illness and had to give up working. To cut a long story short I owed my bank (First Trust) approx £300 (I cant remember the exact figure) for a couple of direct debits that came out of my current account at the time. I also had a credit card (again with First Trust) and the balance on that was approx £600. I contacted the local Citizens Advice, got a payment plan set up with a token payment of £1 per month for the current account and credit card. ( I have paid every month ever since) At the time the Bank agreed to charge no interest on eit
