Hi guys, as i've seen there is a lot on this website about mercer and how to/not to deal with them, but i'm in a slightly different situation and i was hoping some one could give mke some advice. I'll explain my situation first and apologies if it is long winded. I am currently living in Vietnam and have so for the last year and a half. I have an outstanding credit card bill with Barclays and have not paid any payments for 5-6 months. My last registered address and contact number was my parents house, which is where i lived before leaving England. I did contact barclays, several months before and told them that i now longer lived at that address but obviously they are still contacting it as it's my last known address. My mother has recently contacted me saying that she has received many phone calls and letters from Mercer and that she wants to pay them something to make them stop. I have told her not to pay them anything and just to tell them that i don't live there and haven't done for a year and a half, and that the only way she is in contact with me is via email. I have no plans to return to England but I don't want debt collectors turning up at my parents house as this would be upsetting for them, also my mother is worried they will 'black list' her house and it will effect her credit. I can't believe this is true as all debt are in my name and nothing to do with them. Can anyone clarify this for me?? Also any advice on what to do would be very much appreciated. Many thanks
