I have received a Court Claim form from PRA Group for a debt from Halifax for an overdraft back in 2016 when I became unemployed due to medical mental illness.


I was aware of the debt but I ignored any communication from PRA.

They sent me statements via mail & I was constantly receiving emails that if I paid £930 they could close the account.


To be honest I was tempted to pay this as it was a substantial deduction compared to the actual amount of £2690.

But after quickly reading info online from various credit forums if they were offering a low settlement figure that there's a high chance that the debt is probably unenforceable anyway & ignore. And to be honest I would have had to borrow the money anyway from a family member due to my financial position as my only income is ESA benefits


I decided not to pay anything & ignore.

And as this defaulted in Feb 2016 and no contact/payment has been made since Feb 2016.

The default shows on my credit file as a default in PRA Groups name as they are the DCA & it was transferred to them June 2018


I did receive a letter before the claim stating they intend to take litigation action but i just ignored it just like other correspondence from them thinking it was just a threat to get me to contact them.


I have a basic understanding of the whole CCJ / court system but I am aware the creditor does need to provide a CCA and usually this is the first thing to request, but as this is an overdraft they dont need to provide the CCA.


I'm just looking for some general advice or is this just a case of accepting the claim & being hit with a CCJ? 

Part of me wishes now I paid the £930 as apart from one other CCJ due to drop off next year and another minor default (which was wiped anyway by another DCA due to my health situation) my credit file surprisingly was improving. 


Any advice appreciated.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs
