Fees Refund on a Card with Debt Collection

Hello all,

I have just received a letter from Barclaycard stating that there is a substantial refund due for fees, late charges and interest that was applied in error. However, the balance is with a debt collection agency and Barclaycard state the refund will be paid to them rather than to me. 

I would have thought that the refund should come to me as I had the contract with Barclaycard and those charges were made against my account. 

Can anyone advise whether I stand a chance of receiving the refund myself?

Thanks in advance.
