Hi there

 

i have a question or two,

 

for the first time ever i did my credit report and not as bad as i thought,

one mistake which i will deal with tomorrow as a dispute with virgin media which is now sorted.

 

The other thing i was told a few years ago if its not on your credit report you dont owe it

- now i had a letter from a company called creditg saying they had bought my debt and i still owe about £180 on it.

 

Now this debt i was paying about 4-5 years ago, not sure on dates so i emailed them as asked that they send me any payment info if any on the last date a payment was made.

 

Now i have just come of benefits to go self employed and only have return to work credit of 40 a week to live on until tax credits are sorted.

 

They had searched my credit file as i have seen them on there, is there a reason this is not registered on my credit file as a debt?

If a debt has fallen off the credit file it means that the default

was more than six years ago.

 

You need to find out exactly when the last payment was made.

the payment date i got from the company they emailed me today, asi asked for the last supposed date of payment

 

 

Which company?

 

You appear to be is Scotland...is that the case?

 

If so then SB will be 5 years not 6

 

So if the last payment was May 2007 then it is SB provided you have not made any written acknowledgement in the clear 5 year period.

the line about the cra is correct - if defaulted the whole account will come off your cra file paid or not on its [the defaults'] 6th birthday.

 

me thinks phantom payment syndrome here too.

 

in these instances, never ever trust anything a dca says.

 

esp on the phone!

In which case you need to get them to prove that payment was from you.

ok i have just checked the message again i got from them and i got the year wrong sorry was 2008 last payment i started paying in 2007.

 

How do i get them to prove i made the last payment?

The line about if it's not on your credit file is i am afraid rubbish. A debt becomes statute barred in England 6 years after the last payment was due OR the debt was acknowledged. However be aware that some dcas have been known to add the odd rogue payment to the account. If you do not recognise the payment make them prove it was from you.

 

A default entry is placed usually well within 6 months of the cause of action ( final payment after which no further payment or acknowledgment in writting is made)

Given that defaults are removed after 6 years is an excellent indicator that a debt is statute barred. also the CRA reports often show the date of the last ''delinquent''

payment which will confirm the status of the debt.

 

So please don't make statements that something is rubbish when you have not got the facts before you.

Yes but use this draft and edit in detail.

 

The Compliance Manager

xxxxxxxx

 

Ref: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

I refer to the debt for £xxxx which you allege is owed by me:

TAKE NOTE I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE ANY DEBT TO XXXXXXX OR

ANY COMPANY YOU MAY CLAIM TO REPRESENT.

Having taken time to research my credit history and on advice received

I have concluded that any such alleged debt is now STATUTE BARRED

given this information I will not now or in the future make any payment

or offer of payment.

 

I require you know to cease to process or store any data relating to me.

 

I remind you of the OFT Guidance on Debt Collection 2003/2011 and the

sections regarding the pursuit of Statute Barred Debt, you should also be

aware of the ICOs Technical Guidance on the sale of statute barred debt

without informing the purchaser of the status of the debt.

 

For Clarification this letter is NOT an admission of any liability for the alleged

debt.

Send recorded delivery.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.
