hello,

 

i have been a Barclay card holder for 20 years ,

 

six years ago I had to pack up work and could no longer afford the full monthly repayments

 

I phoned Barclaycard and we came to an agreement that I could repay a fixed amount per month and that they would cancel the intrest,

 

as I say this was six years ago,

 

does anybody know why now they would transfer my payments over to asset link(no5) limited,

 

and not just continue to receive payment themselves,

 

,,strange

Hi & Welcome to CAG,

 

Has the debt been sold or are Asset Link collecting on behalf of Barclays?

 

I would have a check of your Credit reference File to see if anything is listed.

 

If either collecting on behalf of or sold then the debt is transferred with the rights of the repayment agreement in place.

 

Have you got all of your statements? If not send a SAR to Barclaycard and reclaim all late penalty/telephone/letter charges plus any PPI if it was ever added at any time.

Do not use any Company to reclaim charges, you can do it yourself for free, just ask away if you need any help.

 

Send Asset Link a CCA request, enclose a £1 postal order (link for CCA request in top toolbar under Library), Asset Link have 12+2 working days to comply, the +2 working days are to allow for postage, if they fail to supply you with the correct documentation then the account goes into dispute and you can legally stop paying.

 

Do not talk to Asset Link on the telephone, the telephone is their number 1 threat tool, like all DCA's they will lie, cheat, misinform & bully to get extra payments out of you, keep everything in writing so you have a paper trail.

 

If anyone does ring, refuse to go through the DPA questions and tell them to write to you and hang up.

thank for the reply,

 

the actual words of the letter are,

 

we will shortly be transferring your account to a third party called asset link capital(no5) limited to recover your outstanding payments,

 

this is in line with your terms and conditions,

 

surely as I have never missed a payment

 

I have not broke my terms and conditions,

i have a feeling it is a shell company owned by barclays. more than likely a way to write off bad debts and claim tax relief whilst still receiving payment.

A dormant company is one that doesn’t trade and has no accounting transactions.

There are two main situations where owning a dormant limited company can be useful for start-ups and small business owners;

 

1. Protecting your interests if you are a business operating as a sole trader, or are thinking of becoming self employed.

2. Preserving your limited company, if you are stopping trading for a period of time.

Dormant companies can also be used to hold an asset, such as a freehold property. However this purpose is of limited relevance to small business owners, so it will not be covered in this guide.

 

 

Which means if they are going to be taking payments they should not be a dormant company....

Hi Howdoi,

 

Wait until you get written contact from Link and then use the CCA request template letter in our Library. It'll cost £1.

 

If you don't have all your old BC statements, send BC a SAR request asap, costing you £10. You'll probably only get back data for the last 6 years during which time there may have been no penalty charges added.

 

So it is really important that you look for any older statements that you may have. These could be worth a small fortune in penalty charges and compound interest.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you
