Recently I seem to have been inundated by (alleged) debts via letters, phone calls even some dodgy bloke at the door.

 

 

I was checking out a strange phone number via the internet and found a thread on debt collection agencies and their dubious (and illegal) practices.

 

 

It was hilarious and scary at the same time.

 

 

It also mentioned CAG so I decided to join up.

 

 

Glad I did. After browsing just a tiny amount of the site I feel empowered already.

 

:whoo:

Thanks for the welcomes, advice and offers of help. I'll be putting together a more comprehensive post soon. Hopefully my 'debt' issues shouldn't take too much sorting (ever the optimist) out but it's good to know there's support out there. :-)

Okay! The first letter I received comes from a company called Willen Collections. It mentions they are 'trying to contact the above named person regarding a personal matter.' The previous address they quote is four and a half years ago. They also 'very kindly' offer apologies if I am not the person named above. I have no idea what it is about so, after doing a bit of research on the company, I have decided to ignore. Would you agree?

 

The second letter is from Buchanan, Clark and Wells. Again they state they are attempting to contact me on a 'personal matter' and they go further in saying they have 'confirmed your (my) address through a credit link via a credit reference agency.' Bit confused at that part. They'd like me to contact them whether I'm the client or not. However, the previous address they quote is one I moved out of 10+ years ago. Whatever alleged debt I owe from this address would surely be statute barred by now wouldn't it? I've chosen to ignore. Yes? No?

 

There is more but I think that's enough for today.

 

Thanks for reading.

Ignore both, they are trying to get a 'bite' and have wasted their bait.

 

You are correct that anything from 10+ years ago is well and truly statute barred.

Thank you sillygirl1. I was just about to delete that last post as I've now placed it in (what I hope) is a more appropriate area. Can't believe they quoted such an old address. LOL! :-)

Take care here, I suggest you check the two main credit reference agencies Equifax and Experian (Credit Expert) to see if these DCAs have searched your credit files and if there are any delinquent accounts showing.

 

If this is stat barred you can get an idea from default dates on accounts on CRA files or it is an indication of the status of the debt if they do not appear on file.

Welcome Katie Coffee you are in good hands here. I had that same feeling nearly five years ago and have made some great cyber friends here on CAG. Started off with 17 debts and my postman having physio on his back for the weight he carried around for just me... Now I am lucky if I get 1 every three months, the great guys and girls on here have seen them off good and proper. It's like a second family here and honest I get so disappointed now when the DCA's cave in !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They know about this site, one even told me not to take advice from here. so much fun when we hit them back. Have now moved to new house and have given those I am paying my new address and telephone number, they do not even bother to ring because I just tie them up in knots..... now as I said 17 debts to start, 13 unenforceable due to no CCA's have offered them silly Full and Finals but as yet none have taken the bait have got close to 75% off, but hey......

 

I think I have had most DCA's for one or the other, you will get to know who is easiest to flick away like an annoying fly, some like Fred's can get a bit heavy and you need the guidance of these experienced boys and girls here. So welcome and flex your muscles for the coming fight, you will be surprised how easy it is with a Army of caggers behind you.
