    Ok. Slow down.

    Several things.

    They are after you for a debt in your Maiden name correct? Over six years old?

    If so, when did you last acknowledge this debt in writing or make a payment?

    Have you received any letters from them?

  • Alternative number is 0113 306 0660 and LINK to their website BUT if you do contact them make sure everything is in writing as DCAs have a habit of putting words in your mouth or backtracking on verbally agreed payments:mad::mad:
    if the debt is over 6yrs old it might be their last ditch attempt to get money off you before it can be written off?? Not 100% sure about that but I'm sure the more experienced DFWers will be able to advise you more about it:)
