there are located in surrey,There sent me a letter reguarding an old debt from over 7 years ago which was from originally Barclaycard and there sent me a photograph of my street where i live and a copy of my credit file

.This is the 1st letter i received reguarding this debt in years.

 

Before realising how old the debt was i offered them a monthly payment and there refused the payment i offered them.And said there are going to take futher legal action against me and there are going to send me to court and said bailiffs

could come to my home.And This Dispute is over a 7 year old debt which should be now expired.

 

I did know the debt was old but, When i realised the debt was 7years old,I asked them for the credit agreement and the statements of the debt from the orginal creditor which was barclaycard and there told me it could take them up to 4 weeks before there get the paperwork from the orginal creditor.And my files are all ready with there legal department.....

 

i would like some advise on what to do.Has i think this debt collection agency is been unfair and i think there are breaking the law by taking photographs of my street and sending them to me though the post.

 

So far ive reported them to tradeing standards,consumer rights,office of fair trading,and the Ombudsman

They are talking complete rubbish, they CANNOT send a bailiff round without a court order and as for sending Streetview of your house that needs to be reported to the local police as a major invasion of privacy and harrassment

 

Cancel any payment you have made to them - you made it without being properly informed of your substantial rights in this case - ie the alleged debt is probably statute barred and therefore it cannot be pursued via court, even if they don't accept and try court now you still have a very solid defence against them under OFT guidelines on debt collection.

 

Other members of the HFO club on this site will be along soon.

 

STOP WORRYING, they CANNOT send bailiffs in, they cannot take you to court in 72 hours and they cannot reset the Statute of Limitations clock as they like to think.

What else that got me mad was i had to concact the consumer credit counciling service when i received the letter from hfo,to see if there could help me,and there advised me to go under a debt management plan which there are now takeing on all my existing creditiors as well so i can afford to make a payments to hfo,if i am required to so.which will mess all my credit file up for another 6 years for going under a debt management plan.

 

The debt was original for £600 with barclaycard but hfo has charged me £1732.28p.

 

This problem is on my mind all the time i cant sleep feeling ill if it.suffering from headaches all the time,ive never been to court before and presure with this is making me poorly and i have 3 young children to look after.just dont know where to turn and i need some help urgently please.

mwf1982.........Hi.........slow down .........deal with the problem at hand with HFO.............make sure you do not pay them any money this is important............send them a letter saying "you do not acknowledge any debt with them or their client..............ask for a SAR (cost £10) and tell them you require ALL data they hold including statements and agreements,they have 40 days to supply this.The SAR will confirm when you last made a payment and whether they can supply a copy of the original agreement. SAR template letter in site file............Do not put this debt on CCCS debt management plan,as should it be Statute Barred CCCS will not want you to remove it from the DMP................Take SILLYGIRLS advice......regarding the court and bailiffs threat..........Before you commit to CCCS post up your debts ,who they are with how old they are and what type of debt and what you have been paying...............I am with CCCS myself and find them OK. so I am not anti CCCS..........Post the information and we will help you,but deal with HFO first.............FS

Sending the streetview picture is harassment and you should complain to Trading Standards via Consumer Direct http://www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/contact

 

 

Ferguson v. British Gas Trading Ltd (2009) is relevant to cases like this - if Trading Standards are reluctant, draw their attention to this part of the judgment:

 

Sedley LJ:

Parliament's intention in passing the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 was to criminalise the kind of serious and persistent unwarranted threat which is alleged here, giving a right of civil action as a fallback. In this situation it ought not to be left to hardy individuals to put their savings and homes at risk by suing. The primary responsibility should rest upon local public authorities which possess the means and the statutory powers to bring alleged harassers, however impersonal and powerful, before the local justices.

dont bother with cccs they will gladly take money from you instead send me the money lol you might as well send it me cause that will be the same as sending it cccs, they wont tell you that their is no obligation to make these payments ,and provided you have not made contact over this debt for 6 years then you have absolutly no worries

Thank you for writing to us. As your account manager , its my responsibility to ensure that all your queries and doubts are answered, to avoid any confusion. I would like to highlight that an account is stat barred after six years, however that is calculated from the last activity on the account. The last activity on your account was on 12th of August 2010, when you acknowledge the account and offered us a payment.

The last payment of £10.00 towards this account was made on 18th January 2007, which means that the account can’t be stat barred until 17th January 2013 .

Also the letters which you have received from us , are not to push you for payments, it’s just a legal obligation to inform our customers about the ongoing activities on their account.

Hope I have answered all your queries.

You can always call me on 0203-024-9643 in case of any other queries or concerns.

Thanking You,
