Hi all,

 

I'm new to this site but I really need help.

 

a few years ago I got myself into a right pickle with debt.

 

I was young and stupid and when it came to having to pay, I couldn't.

 

I have had letters from collection 'enforcement officers' which I haven't given a second thought, letters have been binned etc and we've since moved house.

 

Yesterday morning two men knocked my door and handed me a form from the local sheriff court advising that I will be taken to court in order to recoup the money owed to the collection agency.

 

They did not introduce themselves (later found them to be capquest agents from a clause in the paperwork) and I did not acknowledge the debt or confirm who I was in relation to the person they were looking for.

 

What do I do?

Where do I stand with this?

 

The debt was bought by capquest in December 2012 from original creditor Very and I have had zero contact with either since defaulting on payment to Very in November 2012.

no what you had at your door were sheriff officers,

nothing to do with capquest,

they came from your local sheriff court because a court claim by capquest has been made against you over an old shop direct Very Catalogue account you ran away from.

 

I also doubt you had any letters from enforcement officers most probably DCA'slinked to the capquest group.

 

firstly , you now have a court claim and you need to act swiftly and correctly

to assist us in helping you to do that

can you please complete the following link:

the Scottish SB defence

which I think runs.

The following defence is all you need if it is SB

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of The Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973, Section 6

If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract,

in excess of 5 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

under scottish laws the debt is now extinquished

.

3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £x or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

.

Regards

Thanks so much. I'll fill out the response form tonight/tomorrow.

 

 

In your experience, will the court look at it and accept it as statute barred and no further action or will this require a court date and that I'd need to seek representation?

Sorry for all the questions :)

 

Just saw your other response, that's really handy thank you very much.

its simple procedure aimed at the Litigant in person.[you]

proof of what?

 

its for the claimant to prove a debt is NOT statute barred

not for you to prove it IS.

 

anything they produce will also be produced to you well ahead of its involvement in any court hearing

 

TBH: I cant see you going to court at all

the sheriff will most prob throw it out. straight away.

just remember

theres no harm in talking to the sheriff clerk when you put that in to them.

just remember

its a speculative claim

hoping for a knee jerk action and easy money.

 

DCA's don't care less about any rules

 

 

Kirkcaldy will be VERY familiar with the DCA game

have a chat with the clerk when yo hand it in

sadly no

its a numbers game

 

some 800'000 claims across the uk are issued every year

85% go uncontested

its a numbers game.

 

if everyone simply stopped paying DCA/debt buyers tomorrow

the whole industry of debt buying/dca's would collapse overnight.

 

sadly 99% think a DCA is a bailiff

and pay blindly

 

its the biggest sector of the banking industry .

I put it in last night,

the clerk opened it with another clerk,

had a read

 

 

when I mentioned it was sb"d asked what next

he said that it goes 'to the sheriff who decides if it requires a hearing or not, then you'll hear in due Course'.

 

 

I've just checked royal mail track and trace and Capquest accepted and signed for their copy this morning.
