Dont want to name OC or DCA.


Account in dispute with OC over (unreadable Microfiche) application form/agreement?, unfair charges & mis sold ppi, no default issued but account sold to a dca (OC communicated to correct address).


Made a further cca request to the dca who replied with the same (bad copy) of the microfiche together with T&Cs which again is a very bad photocopy - sent to correct address.


However, their 'account statements', Notice of Assignment (or should I say a letter advising they own debt) & usual threats have all been sent to old address together with a Default Notice, my concern is that they will obtain a judgement via this underhanded way of using our old address - they know full well what our current address is as I have written to them several times.


Incidently, the debt is about £2k LESS then what my charges & ppi claim is for.


Really not sure which way to play this one?

If you have proof that the original creditor has communicated to the dca you new address then any judgement given where the documentation has been sent to your old address could with relative ease be set aside.


It is a tactic some dca's appear to use Link Financial have used it in the past.


If you have been in communication with the DCA from your new address and your requests for agreements etc have been sent to them using your new address then write to them formally request all future

documentation be sent to you at your current address and put them on notice that you intend to report them to the office of fair trading for their unfair business practices.


Guidelines can be found here http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/business_leaflets/consumer_credit/oft664.pdf Section 2.6 J comes to mind
