hi I am currently BR and end on march 2020. today I received a call from cap quest saying they had bough 2 debts from Halifax dating back to 1999. one for a credit card for £4k which after saying I was BR the. said it would get closed as statute barred, but the other one for a current account is for £389 and they said it cant be closed as I have a ccj I think . I said at moment I cant pay anyone as I am BR and they said to contact them with a week to make payment or they will chase me for it. it is from 1996 and a court order was issued in 2008 12 years ago. they have bought the debt and have no idea what to do? pay it? or do what? I always thought that after 6 years a debt was gone. anyone help? TIA
