Hi

 

Today i received a letter from a DCA called C.A.R.S (Creditlink Account Recovery Solutions),

 

they state that they will be attempting to visit me at home within the next week to

'Establish Reasons For Non-Payment' to an old Monument Credit Card (balance of £620.21) which must date back to at least 4 years ago.

 

I have responded by sending them a letter back requesting all communication to be made via letter and no doorstep callers and will immediately follow up with a CCA request.

 

However i've just looked at my Credit Report which lists everything but for some reason this debt is nowhere to be seen on it, what does this mean and is it to my advantage ?

 

many thanks

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

It's a shame you've replied to them, they will be all excited now running round like little children thinking they're going to get some money.!

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Hi Guys

 

Am looking for abit of advice.

 

Last month i recieved a letter from a DCA called C.A.R.S threatening Doorstep visits regarding an old Monument credit card debt.

 

I responded by writing to them requesting all contact to be made in writing and also requested a CCA (i used the template letter from the CAG library)

 

Today i recieved a letter from Monument (who i didn't think existed anymore) with a copy of what looks like my original credit agreement dated 20th September 2003 and a copy of the original T&C's.

 

Where do i stand with:

1- the age of the debt

2- do Monument even exist anymore

 

The letter also says that C.A.R.S will be servicing this account and they will provide me with a 'Statement Of Account' and that they consider the Credit Card Agreement to be fully enforcable and that there is no dispute, is this actually the case ???

 

Any help or advice on my next move would be very much appreciated

 

thanks

OK so they have nearly complied with the CCA request apart from the statement.

 

When was the last payment you made on this account to anyone?

 

Why do you feel it may not be enforceable?

Hi CitizenB

 

Thanks, Monument have sent me all of the above apart from the Statement of Account which they say C.A.R.S will forward to me.

i have checked my credit report to see who the owner of the debt but it dosn't come up on there. Monument have just said that C.A.R.S are dealing with the account so i don't know if they've brought the debt or are just acting on behalf of Monument.

They claim that i owe approx £600, would they take me to court for this amount ?

Hi ims21

 

The last payment made was approx 4 years ago, do you know why would Monument not send out the Statement of Account with the credit agreement etc and leave the DCA to do this ?

many thanks

i would guess that you were defaulted more than 6yrs ago and its fallen off your cra file

 

having an enforceable cca

does not mean you owe the money they claim as such

 

i'd suspect youll have monuments

payment break plan [ppi]

 

and prob loads of £12 or more PENALTY charges

 

both of which can be reclaimed

 

i'd SAR monument.

 

kight be a waste of £10

 

but monument are known to keep records for longer than 6yrs.
