old RBOS CC debt passed to Cabot ? what to do?


Recommended Posts

I have had a letter from RBOS saying they have assigned my debt of £3600 to Cabot however it must be at least 6 years since i did anything with this debt, the letter was sent to my old address.

 

i have had a look around on the site but cant see a FAQ to do with these issues ( probably me not looking the right area) 

.

can anyone advise me on what the next steps are as i assume this debt may be statute barred ?

but im loath to ring Cabot and go through any details with them and would rather do it via letter.

 

as back ground

i have other debts with other banks and currently have CCJ obtained via backdoor so im obligated to pay that debt.

 

also did a stepchange thing that showed i have no other available funds to pay these other debts off.

 

any help appreciated

you never ever ring a DCA nor email anyway no matter what you might think is a good reason

 

if the debt is SB'd

then send cabot our SB letter from the debt collection section of our library.

Correct.

 

No need for them to prove anything.  They have got you on this one. 

 

Best to come to an arrangement on this CCJ and put your energy into making sure any other creditors have your current address.

 

so you didnt follow the advice on your other thread from earlier this tear?

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...

I'm sorry I'm using the clearscore site

the experian one tells me nothing without paying

 

all i see is the card name and number

it says in default

but there is no date

then the amount

and below that a calendar depicting on time/missed or no data

 

it the then say the date opened and the date updated

 

is there another that could give the date you'd recommend

well to sell the debt RBS would of have to have issued a default notice upon sale or before.

now to take since june 2014 to issue a DN is outrageous so i suspect you did received a DN from then years ago but have forgotted

 

RBS had your correct address ...thus so do cabot 

they can't issue a back door CCJ claim then like your other one (M&S CARD) 

and must abide by the pre action protocol.

 

await cabot to start waving their arms at you

 

in the meantime, send RBS an SAR.

cabot have started calling me but leave messages for me I've avoided them for now do you suggest I send them anything?

 sar to RBS will get you everything they hold on you

inc the statement

which might well prove useful for last payment date 

and default notice issuance in their account log pages.

 

as for crapbot...until or unless your get a letter of claim 

you are safe to ignore them

sent off for the SAR

still haven't heard anything from them but

 

today received a Cabot letter saying as they haven't heard from me they will instruct a company called resolvecall to visit my home.

 

should i be worried about this or is there a generic letter i can send to cabot

resolvecall are a powerless dca and a dca can never be a bailiff.
