Was not quite sure if this is right place to post but here goes...

 

I recently got all my credit reports.

 

On one Call Credit I have an item on there from Vodafone which dates back to 17/07/2000.

 

On the report they are saying that I still owe them £90 and the account is in default - I really cant remember if this is true or not - I dont think that it is but I have done nothing about it yeat as I am not what the best course of action is.

 

There is no Account End date entered on the report so I cant ask Call Credit just to knock it off due to time.

 

The other funny thing is that they have a payment start date of March of this year!! - not heard a dicky bird from them so I dont how they are still able to keep this on my report by reporting to call crecit that they are still in contact with me??

 

Can anybody help as I am really not sure what to do. If they are keeping it open I could still have this on my report for another 6 years!! also though as I have not heard from them in over seven years surely this should not remain on report??

 

Please if anybody can help me with this pickle - I am all ears:D

 

I have just had a look again and they have also put that the default date was 11/05/2005 - never received anything as this would have gone to my parents address and they open all my post - I would definately have known about it believe me if I had received such a notice.

My best advice is to CCA them you can get a template in the stickys letter n in the templates and letters libary.

 

you will need a £1.00 postal order which will cost an extra 45p and to send it buy recordeddelivery £1.04 or special delivery £4.10 up.

 

If you send a cheque get a family member to do u one.

 

DONT SIGN THE LETTERJUST USE THE digital signature guide in the stickys OR TYPE YOUR NAME.

 

then sit and wait. They have 12 WORKING days to respond if they dont they enter a defualt after a further 30 CALANDER days then the account is in offical dispute and they cant chase you for the money.

Please remember the only stupid question is the one you dont ask so dont worry about asking the stupid questions.

Hello

 

Thank you everybody for replying.

 

If I SAR them - will this not be admitting that I have the debt with them - in which case make me liable to pay the £90?

 

The plot also thickens with this one - I have checked my other reports and on my equifax report they have entered in a £90 default but this default was applied in Jan 2002 - are they just issuing defaults willy nilly as I definately did not receive that default notice either.

 

Also is a company able to default you on two seperate occasions for the same debt?

 

I am just so confused now!!

Okay - I will go down the SAR route first then.

 

Thank you for all your help - I may just to keep on the safe side - not do the SAR until Jan 08 - not long to go and that will then have been 6 years past since they registered the Equifax default - just in case it begins to go pear shaped.

 

Thank you everybody though - I will do just that in Jan 08

Just on the back of this - if the last contact between me and Vodafone was 6 years ago can they chase me for the debt (not sure if I do owe it or not as I dont remember having outstanding money owing) but can they chase me for it - if it has remained the same for 6 years?

 

Or is the fact that they say they have contacted me (whether they have got through to me or not) is enough for the debt to remain open?

 

Any thoughts?

A debt to a mobile phone company would not be CCA regulated so S.A.R. is the best route. The default should be registered in a 'timely' manner so you may be able to dispute when it was entered.

 

Also useful link below relating to statute of limitations ( be careful you don't acknowledge the debt )

Thank you for your comments - that it what I am scared of doing by mistake so that is why I am waiting until Jan 08 just to be on safe side - and then I will start disputing them - will post how I get on in the future.
