In 2001, a debt I had with MBNA was sold to a Debt Collection Agency (Link FInancial). After being hounded on the phone and in letters, I did some internet research and, although I can't find it now, I did find some info saying that for a debt to be sold, it had to state in the Terms & Conditions that this was allowed.

 

I therefore, verbally, asked Link Financial to supply me with a copy of the agreement. I said that I would refuse to make any further payments until I received this. I have not made any payments since November 2002.

 

I still get phone calls every 2 weeks from Link, and I go through the same rigmarole of insisting that I will not make any more payments until I receive a copy of the original credit agreement.

 

I want to put this matter to rest once and for all.

 

Firstly, do people know whether I am correct in my understanding that the Terms & Conditions of an agreement need to allow for the debt to be sold on?

 

And secondly, would a CCA letter, assuming that a copy of the agreement won't be forthcoming, be sufficient to put this matter to bed?

 

Many thanks for any help that people can provide......
