Hi I have just moved back into cheshire 14 months ago

 

In fact i have moved back to the same address I lived at before moving Out of the county INTO Kent..

 

i have received an email from ADVANTIS stating i owe them £120 for an outstanding debt

which belonged to sky entertainment LTD..

 

I explained to them via email that the missed payment 19.01.2011 i was living in kent,

 

i have documents showing that i was joint tennant of a council flat,

i also have papers showing all our rent payments

i have document showing i have just signed a joint tennacy back where i was

Prior to me uping stakes and moving on...

 

Hope this is clear so far?

Advantis got back to me saying

 

Please contact us with regard to repayments if you wish to discuss this matter please phone our Very helpful team,

if you wish to dispute forward any relevant documentation.

 

The account has been put on hold for 14 days.

 

Any advice please,

 

 

i get the feeling they dont give a monkey's as long as they get money

Hi and welcome to cag,

 

so you moved to kent and left an outstanding sky bill of £120 from 19/1/11 and moved back to current address recently.

 

The fact you were emailed means yr address is irrelevant at this point, yr email address remained the same i presume and can be contacted from anywhere you choose to live.

 

So, about this outstanding amount due to sky. Can you explain the circumstances surrounding this part please?

Hi when i was living with my wife in 2002 i must have got sky out in my name.. IN 2007 i left the marital home, but she continued to have sky in my name until 2011. Which was the last payment made by her to sky.. since 2011 she has changed to talktalk. Which is in her name.

 

So is it my fault for not cancelling sky before i left, ?

 

And this is the first time i have heard from any debt agency

Ok its a little clearer now, regardless of where you were living at the time, you allowed yr wife to continue to use yr account so its still yr debt unfortunately.

 

That said, do you know how the £120 owed is made up. Are there any charges to reclaim etc. It doesnt seem to be about remaining contract charges.

 

Have you spoke to sky about it? Worth a call i think, they are keen to keep customers and have been known to write off previous balances if you re sign as a customer with a new contract.

If you wanted sky services again, its a way to get it sorted is all im saying.

 

The alternative is to send SAR to sky to fight it.

Have they sent anything via letter yet. Cos all they've done is email an email address they had no idea that's in use. They sent a threatogram and you responded. I'd be inclined to ignore unless you get an actual letter that says they WILL do something, or a lba.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

so it gone from sky to cabot and now advantis

 

urm...pass the toxic debt.

 

I think i'd ignore unless they issue a court claim.

 

don't forget a DCA is not a bailiff!

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...

Time to ignore them until something of actual substance comes along like DX says. You responded to a phishing letter, theyre rubbing their hands and thinking. "got him!"

If it was going to court, it would have already done so by now. It might in the future but unlikely. They still have to follow a set procedure before it gets anywhere near a court.
