Link Financial and barclaycard recon for 1990 CCA return - fake?

Recommended Posts


Back in October 2020 I received notification from Link Financial for a defaulted Barclaycard (Taken out in August 1991, Defaulted August 2016, Debt is a little over £9K) and requested a CCA.


Early December 2020 I received a letter saying that they did not have/could not get a CCA and the debt was unenforceable.  


Now I have received a reconstituted CCA and the debt has now become enforceable.

I have had no contact with link besides send the CCA request and £1 postal order.


They have tried calling me several times and have left a couple of messages to contact them.


There are several issues I have with the reconstituted CCA.

·         Uses my current address - not my 1991 address

·         Uses Barclaycard Headquarters address of Pavilion Drive Northampton NN4 7SG

– I found an article on the internet (East Midlands Business Link  (Barclays purchases Northampton Pavilion Drive headquarters - East Midlands Business Link)  which quotes ”Pavilion Drive, which currently houses 3,250 employees, has remained the UK headquarters for Barclaycard for more than 20 years since the building was opened in 1997.”, so not their address in 1991.


·         It states “If your card is Contactless” – Barclaycard issued first Contactless cards in 2007.

·         The Barclaycard contact phone number of 0333 200 9090 - Ofcom introduced 0333 numbers in 2007


These are just the obvious anomalies that I have noticed.

Does this still constitute a “true copy” of the original?

It looks like they have just used a recent version and inserted my current details.


How do I respond to this?


Any advice will be much appreciated.

you don't respond

LInk DCA ...the biggest fleecers there ever were know full well that:

Barclaycard rarely even have enforceable CCa's for even debts from the last 10yrs, let alone one from the 1990's.!!

not a chance!!


ignore until/unless you ever get a letter of claim.

and read my red bits below if you aren't on a tablet or mobile.



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...
