Text from Lantern regarding CFO debt

Hi, 

 

Ive had a random text from Lantern regarding a debt with CFO lending. I've logged into their portal, and the debt is £300. The last payment was apparently May 2017 (which I seriously doubt).

 

I believe CFO is/was a payday lender, and I got into a load of debt with many many payday firms around 2010 - 2012. There is nothing on my credit file relating to CFO or lantern. 

 

I've read they are MMF is a new coat and really don't want to risk a credit file issue. I'm pretty sure I paid MMF for several accounts years ago (again, would have been around 2010/12). The address they have on file is an old address, which I left in 2017.

 

Should I ignore it, send them a SB letter or take another approach? (I'm pretty sure I would not have made any payments for over 6 years, but only pretty sure).

 

Thanks

You should have never logged into the portal or system. 

You should have read ignored and blocked the phone number from contacting you

had to hide you upload post

docx files have all your pers info in file properties/info

please read upload and use PDF

 

not a good idea to ignore them and not log in to see either.

 

send them our SB letter

that will kill 2 birds

give correct address

close them down as its SB'd.

 

worthy to note...how many others did you run away from?

might be an idea to send the debt owner a simple address update letter.

 

a debt being SB'd is no guarantee of not getting a backdoor CCJ even for debts of this age..roboclaims see no human eyes.

Well now they have confirmed the phone number is correct and yours as you have logged in.  They might call and text you more now. 

I would advise you to block the number now.

I meant ignore the text message. Anyone could be the owner of a phone number. I know as numbers do get recycled/used after a while. Some companies its 6 months others its longer. 

If they wanted to contact you then there is always the writing of a letter system. Might be old but has been used for yes with not many issues.

old address OP has moved.

if he hadn't had logged in found it was SB'd

then MMF would have gone for a backdoor CCJ...its their 100% MO on these and the only thing they now do to make easy money.

and they would thus be breaking the CONC rules quoted in our SB letter and be open to being fined and or pay compensation....
