G'day Guy's, I hope you all can help. It seems the Barcleyshark has sold a load of old debts to a company here in Australia. They are utilising unlawful methods to try and collect on these debts by relisting them an our australian credit files. We utilised a couple of forums including expat and an aussie lawyers site, and recieved some great advice. Unfortunately this company has threatened these sites with libel or such and therefore they have removed the threads and banned most of the posters for naming and shaming the company involved. I was hoping you may be able to host a thread for us as this possible affects a hell of a lot of expats over here who face the same crappy debt collection practices as you are facing in UK. While I appreciate the difficulties in providing advice it is my understanding that the terms and conditions of the original contracts, (or lack of them) have to be abided by in any assignment of debt. You cannot change those terms just by buying them. I suppose we are looking for some advice on the paperwork Barclays send as we have all CCA'd, SAR'd etc them etc and would like to know if they are enforceable agreements etc. I haven't named this company yet, would like your sites approval first, but people need to be aware of what laws they are breaking here over and the better understanding of the UK laws. I have received a lot of info from a great poster on expat, and have used the information you guy's have posted to great effect so far. Any help you would be able to provide would be much appreciated. Regards Bodgit PS: I've read here that you guy's love a challenge
