This answer was rated:

I am in dispute with a bank over a personal guarantee I gave for a liquidated ltd company.
I signed the guarantee in 2010 and I also dated the guarantee.
When I dated the guarantee I put on the date 2016 instead of 2010.
The bank have been very aggressive to date, in trying to enforce this guarantee threating court action etc. All of this has been carried out by the bank via email or letters.
Initially the bank insisted, my guarantees given totalled 48k and they were calling in 29k I informed the bank that they were wrong with the amount of 29k and they have dropped this figure to 25k.
I informed the bank that the guarantee in question was dated 10 oct 2016
I did not hear from the bank for 6 weeks - yesterday I had a voice mail asking for me to call them.
Should I call the bank? or should I ask the bank to write to me ? is the guarantee invalid
because it was dated incorrectly.
Kind regards Geoff
