All we do with that stuff is DATE FILE IGNORE. (I would not give them the correct time of day if i met them in the street) take care

    Thanks for the note and I'll definitely ignore and not offer a penny. Which is great news!!

    It's Unenforceable!!
    Why would you OFFER anything.
    JUST FILE THE LETTER AWAY SOMEWHERE very safe and IGNORE THEM.
    No contact!!

    Link has admitted the debt is currently unenforceable because Barclaycard admits they're unable to fulfil your s.78 CCA Request.

    Happy Days

    (Actually it's Link which has to comply with your CCA Request not Barclaycard.)

    They go on to say that "although the account is currently unenforceable the outstanding balance remains collectable and it is acceptable for creditors to register and continue the reporting of a default".

    Link also sent me a copy of a letter that barclaycard (original creditor) have sent to my old address when I took the card out.

    Any thoughts on next steps?

    When did you open the Barclaycard account?

    Did you open the account with Barclaycard or possibly Egg or MSDW etc?

    Hi Di,

    I did send them £1 but they returned stating they wouldn't charge.

    The original account was with Egg opened in Nov 2009, transferred to Barclays in 2011 and Link in 2016.

    Yes, currently in a DMP but only have two creditors so left so contemplating now to self-manage and leave my DMP. Thoughts on that?

    Thanks for your help.

    Maybe it's best for the OP's to check out their legal position first in case this is an account opened recently (so some of CCA 1974 won't apply) which could land them with a court claim.

    Fingers crossed it's UE but better safe than sorry when giving debt advice

    It appears the OP is currently in a DMP so maybe needs to take a holistic view of their situation.

    Hi there,

    Have an outstanding debt of £4k with Link Financials.

    I requested a copy of my credit agreement on the 24th April and they responded on the 27th April to state that they didn't hold the information but would request from Barclaycard. They stated that this could take up to 30 days to provide.

    Obviously that date has passed and I have not heard anything.

    Advice on next steps?

    Many thanks.
