Hi guys

 

I got a random letter through yesterday from a dca saying I owe sky £101,

 

now since I have only had my current sky subscription for six months

and it is fully up to date my assumption is that this relates to an old sky account I had.

 

The last account I had in my name was back when I lived with my mum

and we changed it to her partners name when hd came out so he could get a new customer deal

that I wasn't entitled to

 

so since I moved out of my mums seven years ago

this debt is stat barred if it ever existed at all.

 

Could someone point me in the direction of a statute barred template for Scotland please?

 

I went looking but couldn't find it.

should be in the library tab top left green tab

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...

Now they have sent a letter back asking me to phone to confirm my details before they will deal with me - I think not! Weird thing is they have my old house number wrong, they have me as living one door up from where I did.

you cant change name on accounts so it sounds as a new account was set up in your mums partners name.

 

but as advised if over 6 years its statute barred then nothing they can do

Sorry yes that's what I meant, I cancelled mine so he could take out an account to get the new customer deal they were offering when high definition came out. I have sent stat barred letter and plan to just ignore this latest letter asking to confirm details unless someone here advises me otherwise.

 

It's definitely statute barred as I havent lived at mums for over six years, statute barred after 5 in scotland. That is if it ever existed in the first place I honestly dont remember ever hearing anything about it before and it's never been on credit file as far as I know.
