Hi

Last year I received a letter from Mackenzie Hall stating that I owed £750 for a Barclays Credit Card (I had one credit card in the past which was fully paid and was Capital One not Barclays)

 

I rang the company and asked for a true copy of the alleged agreement, they told me they did not have to do this. Therefore I sent them a letter on 28th May 2008 stating that under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 they had to supply me with a copy of the agreement within 30 days or If they fail to validate the debt within this period, then I am no longer liable to pay the debt.

 

They replied two weeks later saying that they were trying to loacte my agreement.That was the last I heard of them until 18th June 2009 which was a letter from another company called Ruthbridge Limited saying I now owed £832.65.

I never kept the recorded delivery reciept from last year to prove that I sent the letter nor do I still have there letter saying that they were looking for the agreement.What can I do ?

 

[i do not have the recorded delivery slip to say that I sent the letter a year ago so what can they actually do ??

Make a complaint to your local trading standards & the OFT with regards to their harassment and threats, they are in clear breach of OFT guidelines & CPUT, MacKenzie Hall are already under warning for this ;

They have 12 working days from receipt of your request, but you are in an odd position. Normally after that period payment can be legally be witheld until an enforceable CCA is provided, but as it's not your debt you're not making payments anyway.
