Hope someone can advise me what to do about about a letter that was sent to my sons girlfriend's mother's house regarding a debt that i am supposed to owe to Wescot.

 

I am extremely alrmed that they have sent a letter demanding payment to a persons house that i really don't have anything to do with and have never lived with.

Have they assumed i lived there because my son lived there for a while???

 

As for the debt, i am really not sure if i owe this money or not as i had to leave the area for personal reasons almost six years ago and have never taken any personal loans etc out since leaving.

 

they say that the debt for £115 was sold to them and the haeding on the letter says "notice of assignment"

 

Should i acknowledge the letter even though they sent it to a strangers house?

As they say they have bought the debt, would i still be able to use statute barred as i believe this debt is over five years old.

 

Hopefully someone can offer advice to my ramblings.

 

thanx

Hello and Welcome,

 

I take it the letter was addressed to you, well with your name on it.

 

If no acknowledgement of this alleged debt has been made in the past 5 years, then yes it's statute barred.

 

I'd tend to ignore it, there is a letter I can give you asking them to prove the alleged debt, but until they contact you at your address I'd let it lie.

 

Regards.

 

Scott.

Hi and welcome to CAG :)

 

If you havent made any acknowledgement to the alledged debt in over 5 yrs then the debt would be statute barred irrespective of when wescotts bought the debt.

 

Hope that helps

Thanks for the replies.

 

The letter did have my name on it.

I really don't want them to send anything else to that address as it was embarrassing for me and my son.

 

I think i will post it back "not known at this address" hopefully they won't send anything else to them.

 

Thank you for the offer of the letter, hope i won't need it!
