I don't know. I don't really want to bother her. I said she'd probably get another letter maybe a few then they would most likely give up.
I've asked her to send me details if she receives another one. If I get it I will post on here. Always good to get this group's opinions and to pass on info.
I'm just guessing but I suspect some company has bought a load of statute barred debts on the cheap and is flinging out letters to see what sticks.
I guess they found her by tracking her married name on credit records through to her new name. I'm not sure I would have any reference to credit on my parent's address as I left home before any of this and they have moved several times too but that's my only concern is they get worried by receiving a demanding letter.
Anyway, thanks. I'll post any updates if there are any.
Sorry but I'm not sure which question you are replying to
She threw the letter away so I have no details. She doesn't remember the name. She literally called and said we broke up years ago and that was it.
Hi all, long time no visit. Hope this is in the right section, apologies if not.
I just received an SMS from my ex wife to say she got a letter in the post regarding a debt in my name.
Unfortunately she threw the letter out so I have no details,
she called them and asked why she received it and they said it is by association (her surname is now her new husbands so I'm quite amazed).
She told them she has no idea where I am.
I live in SE Asia now, have been solidly for 5 years and on and off for 6 before that.
Right my questions are these.
I have had no contact with any finiance companies/credit cards or anything for at least ten years (no correspondence or calls) so surely they would be past the Statute of Limitations now?
and, how did they find my ex wife who has changed surname twice since we split up 13 years ago?
lastly, are my parents likely to receive anything?
They are old and I'm worried about them getting demands.
I have a basic bank account in England that was registered to their address but there is no credit attached to it (no overdrafts, no loan, no credit cards).
Oh I forgot add, is it possible to restart the 6 years from the beginning again if someone/I respond to any correspondence or can only a judge do that?
Thanks for reading.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
