I've received a letter from Barclaycard informing me they have sold my debt to Cabot.


£1 monthly payments were being made to Credit Solutions.


The letter says I should contact Cabot to arrange a payment method.


I would like to continue to do this by internet banking each month.


The letter also says that Cabot will honour the payment plan for a minimum of three months.


I just want to check that there is no pitfall to contacting Cabot (by phone at least)

and whether there is anything else I should do at this time.

You pay Cabot exactly what you are paying Credit Solutions, when Cabot bought the debt, they also acquired any payment arrangements.


You need to keep everything in writing, write informing Cabot that a payment arrangement was in place and kept to with Credit solutions, this will continue at £1 pcm to Cabot.


Have you asked for a CCA request? If not send Cabot one.

Does the sale, amount outstanding and any payments made have been updated on your credit report?



NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

Of course Cabot are, as you said, already aware of your existing payment plan but was it confirmed in writing

and did it specify a fixed time period or indefinite [until balance repaid] or nothing specified?


The point is, Cab cannot vary a written payment plan.


If yours extends beyond the 3 months' grace which Cab have so generously bestowed, you can tell them to ****


Do NOT phone Cab:


debt purchasers are not famed for their integrity


and you need a paper trail in case of legal action or other dispute.

get that CCA request off!


who say this debt is even enforceable


if CSL had it and now its been sold again to cabot


this smells of cash cowing


how old is this debt?


when did you take the card out?


is it on your credit File?


how did CSL 'spoof' you into paying them?


if you are using the phone STOP NOW


they and any other DCA are NOT BAILIFFS

and have



might be an idea to get an SAR of to BC


I bet you've loads of PENALTY charge




PPI to reclaim?


BC sold it for a reason...find it



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...
