Hello All


Advantis are chasing me and my wife for £3433.13 for an overpayment of tax credits.


I was made bankrupt three years ago and I'm pretty sure the overpayment to which they are referring was from before that time.


If the debt was before the bankruptcy (which was initiated by the HMRC on a separate matter) shouldn't it have been included in the bankruptcy petition?


My wife is named separately on the account so I would figure that even before we disputed the amount it should only be for her share and not mine if mine was cleared with the bankruptcy.


Also, what is Advantis' role in this?


They claim to have been sent the account by HMRC but will not confirm whether or not they purchased the debt.


They are also claiming that they can only send me any paperwork they have on me if I request it in writing and pay them £10.00

for it.


Any views would be very welcome.
