This company took over a debt from Barclaycard some time ago and although they had been receiving monthly payments of five pounds they sent me a letter a few weeks back offering an early settlement if I increased the payments. I agreed to this and sent back a Direct Debit form. They never took any payments. Anyway, last week I had a letter from Hamptons Legal saying they were about to issue court proceedings but I could stop this if I contacted them. I tried to telephone them but could never get through so I wrote to them. I have now had another letter saying that they are requesting my credit file and will then issue legal proceedings!!! Im really worried as I am about to finish paying one CCJ in sept, I dont want another one esp when Im trying to sort it out!!! Arrrgghhhh!!!

I presume this is for an old Barclay credit card. If it is then i suggest you send a CCA request to check if the debt is legally enforceable.


Lowells and Hamptons are the same company. Just monkeys sat at different desks in the same office.


Did you get a lot of charges on the credit card? If so you can claim them back but first you will have to send a Subject Access Request to Barclaycard.


CCA Request letter below. Edit to suit, do not sign it, enclose a £1 postal order and send Recorded Delivery,


Your Address




Dear Sir/Madam


Re:− Account/Reference Number 4563210025897412


This letter is a formal request pursuant to s.77(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I require you to provide me with a true copy of the credit agreement relating to the above account, together with any other documentation the Act requires you to provide.


I expect you to comply fully and properly with this request, within the statutory time limit. You are reminded that should you fail to comply with my request, the provisions of s.77(6) will apply.



If it is your view that you are not the creditor, s.175 of the CCA 1974 applies in the case of a simple assignment, and places a duty upon you to pass this request to the creditor. In the case of an absolute assignment, you are a creditor as defined by s.189. If you contend that you purchased the rights but not the duties of any agreement, you are reminded that s.189 of the Act is clear that an assignment is of both rights and duties.


Your attention is drawn to ss.5(2), 3(b),6 and 7 of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUTR).


I enclose a postal order in the sum of £1.00, which is the statutory fee. Note that these funds are not to be used for any other purpose.


If you are unable to comply fully and properly with this request, you should confirm this in writing at the earliest opportunity, and certainly within the statutory time limit for compliance, and return the fee.


We look forward to hearing from you.


Yours faithfully
