Hi Mrbobo

 

A few questions:

 

Are the cards in her name?

 

Were you issued a card too?

 

have you informed the card companies that she has left the country?

 

What you should do straight away is get your Credit Reference files from Experian, Call credit, and Equifax. Once you have these, you call the companies above ,and ask them to send you out a disassociasion form.

This form once sent back and signed by you, will remove any financial ties with your wife in the future. Does come in handy especially if there maybe a divorce in the future. You should tell the card companies where she is and to send all mail there.


Some useful links.

do you know her log in for paypal - or have cookies on your computer - so you could go and check the amount owing ?

 

is this right?? dose this not bend the law some what??

 

if it is her debt then carn't you just inform them that the person they want is no longer live at the address??

If all the debts are in her sole name - then it is nothin ot do with you - do not offer to tpay anyone anything that is not yours. Do as UK suggested and as long as there is no joint accounts enter a notice of disassociation with the CRA's.

The problems may arise if you have joint assets - eg property - can you clarify if you own a property?

You must allow that the company concerned are not allowed by the DPA to tell you about her debt amount. It is not being dodgy just legally compliant. Obviously you would know the debt amount eventually when the payment was taken.

So you would just hand over your credit card details, brechiner, and not ask how much they were attempting to take and how they had reached that total?

 

Really?
