PRA Settlement - old MNBA Card debt around 3 years old

Recommended Posts

Hi new to the board,

I have an old MNBA debt around 3 years old, PRA group have purchased it and time to to they send these offers for my account to be closed, my concern is they are trying  to make me admit debt and it doesn't state it will be full and final settlement just that the account will be closed, will they sell it on for the remainder, the discount is 65%? 

 

heres the wording:

 

65.00% discount on your account
There is the option of 65.00% discount available if it would help you manage your account:
Please note this offer will expire on Monday 22nd June 2021
Use your discount in 3 easy steps:
  • Log in online using your name, date of birth and postcode (or reference number & password from a PRA letter)
  • Select your MBNA Limited account and click 'make a one-off payment'
  • Enter £*** and pay by debit card
We will do the rest and send you a letter to confirm your account is closed.
If appropriate, your credit file will be updated to show you have made a payment. However, paying this amount will not look as positive on your credit file as paying off your balance in full would. There are other options too, so get in touch to discuss what else you can do.

Are you currently making payments to PRA or not paid anything since the debt was sold to them ?

How much is the current debt ?

Its not an old debt, they state they will close my account but that will not stop em selling it on will it.

 

Now if i query it this will restart the SB clock, so im hesitant.

Reading the last paragraph above it implies your credit file will be marked as satisfied...which would indicate that they may write the rest off.

If you were to accept their offer...and the debt is quite considerable...its important that you seek clarity from them before accepting their offer and in writing.....you would be prepared to consider the offer on provision that they confirm the balance is written off.

 

Although the time offered close.....the actual date is Tues not Monday 22nd June

No...you have not acknowledged the debt...simply responding to their offer...that's not an acknowledgment. Once you have a written conformation that the debt will be closed and balance wrote off...its irrelevant then if you acknowledge or your deal affects the limitations date.

Thanks Andy and Godmother.

 

So if i email and state i have received your offer of 65% discount, i am prepared to consider the offer if the offer is full and final settlement and the full balance is written off. Please can you confirm via letter.

 

This will not restart the SB clock?

 

Also if they email back and state its full and final is that good enough proof or does it have to be a letter?

No it will not restart and email is as good as letter IMO.

  • dx100uk changed the title to PRA Settlement - old MNBA Card debt around 3 years old

who says the debt is even enforceable?

might be why they are offering such a large discount so they get something out of you before you wise up and send a CCA request.

 

with no enforceable CCA nothing needs paying at all.

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...

I did say about that in a earlier post but the OP was more interested in the wording of the offer than anything else

Yes it can be unenforceable how did you apply

guaranteed due to age of 2016 being enforceable is not strictly true, we win most MBNA claims even on recent cards.

 

what pricked my ears was the debt is close to £7k .. PRA are at the best of times wolves and i simply cant see them giving away +£3.5k when for £25 they could raise a court claim and win hands down if the correct paperwork existed.

 

for the sake of £1 i'd do that and await the next offer...rather that take an offer that could end up with you paying almost £7k cause they will sell it on i bet or scam you by using a differing trading name after you've reset the SB clock.

hmmm, if i CCA will that reset SB clock if they provide me with paperwork?

 

i thought if i get f/f settlement in writing the remaining balance will be written off so how will they reset the SB clock, like Godmother and Andy stated

 

at the time of the application? no i was accepted based on credit rating.
