    Receiving emails offering 20% off on this unenforceable debt!

    So PRA want you to pay them 80% of the balance outstanding of this unenforceable debt, which could be up to 70% more than they paid Barclaycard for it in the first place.

    Are you tempted

    Obvious option is post redirect for the years remaining but just mulling over my options as the debts wouldn't become statute barred until 2025 - urgh- so probably a couple of years of redirection would be needed at c£70/pa.

    You can have Royal Mail Redirect for up to four years. If any mail is sent Recorded or Special Delivery then the sorting office will redirect it but also inform the sender that it has been redirected, although they don't reveal the new address.

    It's difficult to predict whether notifying your change of address would be seen as an acknowledgement of the debt, perhaps dependant on the wording.

    On a separate issue I see you will be moving house when your son turns 18 due to divorce. I found myself in a similar situation but the court subsequently changed/extended the order to when my child "completed university" . She was also able to make her own court Application for ongoing maintenance which was successful

    Be honest. Tracing you through CRA is easy these days as banks etc report on files new address etc. Also if debt collection companies / buyers get a CCJ against you in your absence?? See what others say??

    Thanks to this group I'm not scared of them anymore. I'm just filing their missives until I get one that is actually something worth responding to. I'll keep updating this post with anything that arrives.

    So the agreement may be enforceable, If it is that's certainly not the end - Some of my agreements were enforceable - But I never paid them a penny and they are well past the SB Post now

    The agreement is only a part of the whole picture and any claim or litigation could fall down on several other factors should it ever get this far - Many don't

    They have appointed Moorcroft to act as collection agents - Personally I see that as good news

    This is all about playing the game now and responding correctly

    As and when you get any contact from Moorcroft, post up and we will get you sorted - Your doing great

    Hi Diana

    I'd heard nothing on the debts until today when I received a letter from Barclays saying that they had passed my account to moorcroft to handle.

    What was Niddy's verdict on the credit agreement you sent to him?
