Robberway sending Do you Live here letter..

Recommended Posts

I have received a letter from a Debt collection company asking me to confirm that i live at my address and to contact them.

 

I have recently moved to the address and guess something has alerted them.

 

I am 100% certain that i have no debts or communication with this company in the past 6 years.

 

Should I confirm my address and enquire as to what they want or ignore them?

Robinson Way.

I don’t know the debt, it isn’t mentioned. 

 

The letter is stating they need to confirm the person living at the address and to contact them on an important matter.

didn't say adverse....

are there any debts showing at all ?

 

but I doubt it as most were in your old stepchange which means they would have been defaulted more than 6yrs so wont show.

 

typically and at a guess i'd say this is your old Barclaycard debt as hoist/robbersway is where most of these get sold too.

the issue is, you've moved numerous times and never updated your debt owners.

so the sniffer dogs are after you.

 

when did you fail the DMP?

No debts showing at all. DMP failure would be around Apr 2013 when i split with my ex, it was joint.

So if no debt repayments within last 6 years will be statute barred.

 

If you are sure this is the case, you could send them a  statute barred letter which would also be confirming that you live at the address. This is to prevent them gaining a CCJ by sending claim form to last confirmed address.  And then it would be up to them to argue if they did not believe it was stature barred.

 

Problem might be if the debt was joint with your ex and they have made payments in last 6 years. If this could be the case, it might be worth you just sending a letter confirming you live at the address and requesting statement of account covering last 7 year period.


We could do with some help from you.

Would it be better just to confirm i live at the address for now? There is no mention of a debt in their letter just to confirm who lives at the address.

Yes and then they will write to you with more information.

I have now received a response to my letter.

 

The gist is that this is a credit card debt from 2000 and that the last payment received was £5 in October 2013 to the original creditor.

 

There is a financial sheet attached and they are prepared to accept nominal payments.

Account will be put on hold for 30 days.

 

Im 100% sure that I personally didn’t make a payment but there is a possibility that my ex wife did as part of a debt management plan.

 

Advice on next steps please.

So presumably i wait for next communication which will be beyond 6 years and then send the statute barred letter to their next correspondence?

I moved house recently and received a letter from them asking for confirmation of who lived at the address. I followed the advice in the earlier posts and confirmed via letter who i was and have now received their letter. There have been no other communications or discussions.

I do, but not to hand. Again it follows the advice on the thread. I merely confirmed that i lived at the address and nothing else. No mention or acknowledgement of accounts, payments, debts etc. The reply i have uploaded is in response to my letter to them confirming my name and address only.

well make sure you inform anyone else you have debt/credit with you've paid or used in say the last 7yrs you've moved

else you might end up with backdoor CCJ's you know nothing about till a bailiff is at your door.

the change to the electoral roll will have triggered this, they dotn actually know if they have the right person but use certain calculations to work out iklihood you are the person they are after. It is common for the to get the wrong person and then blot their credit files instead of the actual person they are after.

However, you seem to recognise this particular problem but as they arent sure they have the right person  wont be in a hurry to press you for payment yet and the timings will work in your favour.

Always use snail mail for any correspondence, do not respond to emails or phone calls
