When I was in Dubai in 1999 I had an Emirates Bank account. I left in 2000 back to uk. Its possible that I may not have paid off all my debt when I left. I have received a letter on friday from Coyle White Devine solicitors from Amersham requesting a debt owed to the bank for £157,000
They are warning me that if i dont response they will take me to court
My questions is :
Is the contract with the bank in Dubai valid in an English court
and if so have there been any successful claims so far in the UK
I had a credit card when in Dubai. I do not know how much was the balance when i left, but there was probably some moneys due to be paid. Upon my return in 2000 i had forgotten about this and since 2000 i have not had any correspondence from the bank.
It appears that interest has been accruing and is now appx £150,000.
I do not have the agreement.
I am reluctant to contact the law firm until i have got some facts.
They say they have been convicting people at Northampton County court. where can I find info on current convictions, like this for debt in dubai.
