Last month my wife received a demand for payment of a debt from a dca in her maiden name, we know this debt is over nine years old because we have been married over nine years.

 

As we had no knowledge of this company contacting us before about this debt my wife wrote to them with the standard statute barred letter, they then replied saying that she wrote to them in 2002 agreeing a payment plan.

 

They even produced an alleged copy of their reply to the plan, but not my wifes letter to them. I know she would not have made any agreement as she has always hidden any letters (from dca's) from me.

 

My question is where do I go from here, we have no record of this debt (9 years ago) and I certainly do not know of any agreement made to this particular dca.

10/3 Preliminary letter sent to bank

17/3 Acknowledgment letter recieved from bank

24/3 LBA letter sent to bank

19/5 Claim filed with court

10/6 Defence filed by bank

13/6 Allocation form filed with court

18/10 Preliminary hearing set by court for 10/11

21/10 documents for claim filed with court

3/11 Money deposited in account

Hi Jamie.

 

I would write to them (not phone) and tell them that you believe that their letter is false and ask them for true copies of all correspondence received from your wife showing dates and signatures.

Perhaps in the form of a Data Protection Act SARs letter.

 

If someone has any better advice then perhaps they post it on this thread.

If this has been useful to you, please click on the scales at bottom left of post. Thanks.

Write back and state that they have failed to produce evidence that she had made contact with them in 2002, that any alleged debt is well and truly statute-barred, and that if they want the money, they'd better be ready to go to court over it, and that any action will be vigorously defended, and that if they insist on going to court, you will ask the judge not to award costs against you, since you believe that their lawsuit would be vexatious.

State that since they have failed to produce any evidence that the debt is hers, or that it is not statute-barred, you expect them either desist from further harassment, or their next letter had better be an MCOL form, and that you will not be entering into further pointless communication from now on.
