I recently made a section 78 CCA request to Cabot who I have been paying a debt off to for 2 years.

There was another 12 months left until I realised I could make a CCA request to them.

 

I received a reply today saying that they could not get the info from the original lender, and the account is unenforceable.

 

What data position does this place them in?

 

Can they still request from me or use my data in any way?

What about the default under their name on my credit file?

doesn't prevent them from either.

 

the default would have been placed by the original creditor...who was? and what type of credit was it?

 

as long as cabot did not change that date, then its a true reflection of the way you operated the credit

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...

Retitled and moved to CAT forum.

 

Under the rules they are quite entitled to contact you.

However until they comply with the CCA request

You are equally entitled to ignore them

Until o r unless they comply or issue a letter of claim

How often though? And how much constitutes harrassment? I get a letter a fortnight and about 5 calls a week.

I've been ignoring the calls and letters. Now they have sent a letter from another company saying that they want me to contact them or they will send a representative. What do I do?

Ignore them. This is an unenforceable debt as no copy of CCA available.

 

If you write to them, they may try again to get hold of CCA and who knows second time around they may be successful.

 

The letters they send are just template letters. Yes some of them do use commission based field agents, who may try to visit you to ask about why you are not making payments. But these field agents have no powers and if they did visit, you don't have to speak to them. If they did knock asking to speak to Mr X, you would just answer, sorry, I don't deal with anyone at the doorstep.

We could do with some help from you.
