    Long closed Goldfish loan

    Long closed Goldfish loan 13th Feb 18 at 10:32 PM
    Sometime around 2001, I had a Goldfish loan. I paid it off in full, either by it running it's term or taking out another loan. Either way it was paid off.

    I wrote to Lloyd's and Black horse as I'd read they took on Golsfish, but I've had a letter that they can't find any records.

    Is it worth pursuing, or should I just leave it?

    Potted history of Goldfish;

    1996 Goldfish launched as a joint venture between British Gas (later Centrica) and HFC bank
    2000/1 Centrica dumped HFC and got into bed with Lloyds
    2003 Lloyds acquired the Goldfish brand and the assets of Goldfish Bank Limited
    2005 Lloyds sold Goldfish to Morgan Stanley, who later demerged their CC operations as Discover in 2007
    2008 Discover sold Goldfish to Barclaycard

    It's unlikely Lloyds will have any records of a loan taken out in 2001 by a business that they sold in 2005.
