Well my DPA letter has gone off the British Credit Trust today. 40 days and counting.

 

As they have already defaulted me on this one and sent it to a collection agency I am keen to get the ball rolling on this one.

 

You may have noticed I have posted a similar thread about a Capital One claim. I thinks its probably best to keep them seperate as they will progrees seperately. Hope this is ok.

I have been informed by a phone call today that my agreement and loan with British Credit Trust has been 'sold' on to a third party going by the name of Marlin Financial.

 

After speaking to them they have given me 7 days to come to a financial arrangement with them regarding outstanding balance.

 

Do I now serve this company with a DPA?

 

British Credit Trust website has an FAQ section. One of the questions is:

 

Is it possible to transfer my agreement to a third party?

No, the agreement is only between you and us.

 

If this is the case why have they then been able to sell the debt on to a third party?

 

Just spoken to British Credit Trust by phone who told me that they have the legal right and perogative to transfer the agreement where as I do not. In addition they no longer hold a file as it has all been passed to the third party.

 

My question is do I deal with Marlin Financial now or ignore them and continue with British Credit Trust?

Hi all!

 

In my view...

 

send a recorded delivery letter to both companies to be on the safe side.

 

If further down the line you are shuttled from pillar to post you,have the evidence - Recorded Delivery Slips together with copies of the exact letter to each party i.e.the loan company and the debt collection agency.

 

In the event of the loan company returning your letter and informing you in writing regarding the "passing on of your account/records etc to xyz debt services",you also will have the evidence that you are dealing with the debt collection agency only which you should then retain.

 

In brief:

 

ALWAYS RECEIVE CONFIRMATION OF THE INFO IN WRITING - ESPECIALLY WHAT IS SAID IN A TELEPHONE CONVERSATION!!!

 

I hope you find this advice useful.

 

Keep us posted on how you get on.

 

All the best!

I find it all very confusing. I have over £500 in charges added to my £200 card limit, which I havent paid yet, and it has been sent to a debt collector. I have paid the £200 back over the last 2 years but now the debt collector wants the full amount, charges and all. I asked the same question about a Captial One card and someone told me to send a letter to Capital One and the debt collection agency and someone else said not to send one to the debt collection agency but to carry on paying them and then claim back from Capital One. If I had taken the first persons advice (which I appreciate as they were trying to help me) I would have had a CCJ winging its way to me. So I am not sure how you sort it with different, well meant, info.
