I have received 2 letters from Ruhbridge DCA, asking someone to call. From looking at other threads they se like a nasty piece of work. I sent a CCA with a £ p/o which they have returned stating that they have requested the info from their client Cabot finance relating to Barclays from 14 years ago. I have never acknowledged or made a payment for over 6 years. Should I send a SB letter as over 6 years?

Can someone please help a v.worried Wal62

They returned the £1 payment?

 

Yes, the debt is statue barred if not acknowledged in the last 6 years, you should also send the harassment letter to stop them chasing you.

Always happy to help where I can!

Hi All

 

Well i just received letter from Ruthbridge, claiming i owed £2300 for a Barclaycard account over 14 years ago and at another address.

I just laughed at them down the phone when they said I needed to pay it and they also said they where not breaking the law / OFTs guidelines chasing the alleged debt.

 

I just reported them to the OFT, Trading Standards(Consumer Direct) also emailed Watchdog as they reported on them in 2009 for the same thing and sent an email to Vince cable, try and get them in as much sh*t as possible.

 

Just waiting now to see if they reply with my request to remove my details from their system and pay compensation, if not take the matter up with FOS.

 

Also at previous address, never had barclaycard

Have you notified them in writting that the debt is statute barred

and you will not be be paying if not do so, otherwise they are

at liberty to chase the debt.

This time Ruthbridge are not in the wrong but you are.

Hi BRIGADIER2JCS

 

Yep i told them on the phone and in 2 emails and just finishing off the letter i'm writing before posting.

 

CAM

 

p.s can you explain how they are at liberty to chase if the alleged debt is over 14 years, and the law states that anything over 6 is statue barred.

In England and Wales the debt can be pursued although not through the courts until such times as you inform the pursuer that you won't be paying. Strange as this may seem. In Scotland the debt ceases to exist after 5 years.

 

What the OFT state

The OFT position with regard to the recovery of statute barred debt is:

a. we accept that the situation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is that statute barred debt still exists and is therefore recoverable. However, in Scotland, statute barred debt is 'extinguished' and is consequently no longer recoverable

where businesses seek to recover statute barred debt in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, we consider that the following may be unfair or improper practices: (i) pursuing the debt under circumstances in which the debtor has heard nothing from a creditor during the relevant limitation period.58 If a creditor has been in regular contact with a debtor before the debt is statute barred, then we do not consider it unfair to continue to attempt to recover the debt
