Your good advice please.

 

I received a letter from a DCA titled a’ pre-legal assessment’ on an old credit card debt that the DCA have recently acquired.

I suspected this could be nearing SB

 

I checked my credit file and discovered that there is no information about this account on my file prior to May this year!

 

As they are are using the usual vague language i,e, ‘may’, 'being considered’, should I bother to respond to this or should I CCA them or other?

Who’s responsibility is it to insure the information on a credit file is accurate and up to date?

 

Would the OC remove this info or what could have happened?

 

It’s all a bit odd and I’m not sure how to respond if at all to the DCA.

 

Regards

What type of debt e.g catalogue, credit card ?

 

How many years ago did you take out the original account ?

 

Roughly when did you last make a payment or send written acknowledgement ?

 

Nothing on credit report prior to May. Has DCA added this debt to your report ?

 

Normally original creditor adds debt default and any subsequent debt owners update with their details. Sometimes in error the OC does not add default or it gets removed when it is in process of being transfered.

 

You don't need to respond to a DCA, following one letter.


We could do with some help from you.

I wouldnt respond at all, they are clearly fishing with very limited bait. If they come back with a proper LBA then you send a CCA request and that will keep them busy or knock it on the head completely. As they are acting on behalf of someone else they will probably go away after another letter with more scary promises of doom and gloom.

Good morning,

received LBA yesterday (5th)threatening court action if I don’t contact within 10 day of date of letter (29th Sept!) so need to act today!

 

I’ve had a dig around on my CF and found that my last recorded payment was in September 2010!

Cant find any other record of payments.

 

The account default date is 15th Oct 2010.

Should I send CCA request off today then do a bit more research to see if this accounts now SB?

or just go straight in with SB?

 

Sorry just seen the earlier posts by unclebulgaria

 

1, Credit card

2, 2009

3, Oct 2010

4, Not sure but it seems that way.

Very little info on CF.

Checked a couple and found some payment made up and including September 2010.

On on other CF default date and amount noted with date of account started.

 

No it not MBNA

I’ve sent a CCA request off to the Sols and DCA this morning.

 

Think I’ll SAR the OC as well see whats what as there is little or no payment history on my CF. Your good advice would be very welcome.

 

Ah typical just read you message!! I thought it best as Ive had a letter from DCA sols and didn’t want to risk court action :-(

 

Trouble is I don’t know if it SB as there is no payment history on my credit file after Oct 2010 and I have no record of having made any paymens to this account.

I’ve finally received a letter from DCA with a recon CCA and a simple statement from OC (Tesco).

 

This alleged debt is not on my credit file.

 

They are asking for payment of course and threatening court action if nothing is forthcoming from me.

 

They have given me 30 day to respond.

Your good advice would be appreciated.

 

Sorry should have added that according the ‘account statement, it’s not SB.

I don’t have any record of payment myself but the statement suggests it’s not SB. As far as it being an online agreement I’m afraid I really don’t remember.

You can ignore robbersway demand for an I&E form to be sent, that has absolutely nothing to do with them.
