I got a random call today (AT WORK) from a company called CCS

apparently i have spoken to them before he suggested (i dont think so)

also he claimed i was expecting a call (again lies)

 

he went on to tell me the calls were recorded and to say their company had been passed on the debt by Activ Kapita about a debt from Barclaycard

(joys of my ex boyfriend screwing my credit over with this card)

 

i said to him it was 2001 and he said yes but you defaulted in 2004!!! funny that seen as its 2012 now...

 

i reminded him that if i defaulted in 2004 then doesnt that make it Statue Barred (he said yes but you defaulted in 2004)

then i repeated that it was more then 6 years ago and is statue barred and he put the phone down on me!!!

 

in regards to this debt i haven't paid anything to them since 2004 maybe 2003 and i haven't spoken to the company or barclaycard since then.

 

what do i do now??? please help

Nothing to do. You've told them in SB'd and you won't be paying. If they contact you again tell them in writing only and put the phone down. If they write to you write back with the SB letter but edit it to say "as you were advised when you rang me at my work address this is SB'd...." and if they contact you again after you've put that in writing report them. Check your CRA file also.

That in itself is a valid reason for complaning - it could be anyone - and pre removal would suggest they are assessing your assets - which is a big no no.

Just worked on the info you have supplied!!

 

So a while ago i wrote them the statue barred letter with no details on it and I simply typed it and send it.

 

They clearly have recieved it but they sent me another letter saying I owe them money!!!

And they called my house phone which is in my partners name and ex directory and I have no clue how they got it!!

 

They are no longer Calling my work.

 

However due to investigation I found out they got my work number from LinkedIn where my profile of no content really has now been deleted along with my twitter

and I have locked down Facebook.

 

However my home number isn't displayed anywhere with link to my name.

How the hell did they get that??

 

What do I do now?

 

I thought the letter would have been enough

 

Please help!!

And report them. Once you've sent the SB letter they should cease collection activities.

Ok send this to their Compliance Manager

 

Dear Sir or Madam

 

Ref:xxxxxxxxxxx

 

Take note I do not acknowledge any debt to

you or any company you may claim to represent.

 

In regard to the debt for xxxxxx from advice received

and personal research I have concluded that the alleged

debt is STATUTE BARRED therefore I will not now or in

the future make any payment or offer of payment.

You will now cease to process any data relating to me and

remove all reference to from your records.

 

I am sure you are familiar with the OFT Guidance 2003/2011

and the sections regarding the pursute of statute barred debt,

and also the section regarding the sale of such debts without

informing the purchaser of the status of the debt.

No further correspondence will be entered into.

Send this recorded delivery.

Although it is not on your credit file it does

not mean always that the debt is statute

barred, and even if it is the debt is stll live

and payable, just not enforceable in court.

The OFT Guidance 2003/2011 says that it

considers it unfair to pursue for payment of

an sb debt once the debtor has informed the

creditor in writting that the debt is sb and

they will not be paying.

Even then the debt is not extinguished.

In Scotland after 5 years the debt is extinguished.
