Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you nut I need some further information first
For clarity - you do understand that you are under no duty whatsoever to pay these debts?
Are there no payment details on any of the letters that you have received?
In fact any one can pay the debt - IF they have all the necessary information - what they cannot do is get any information from the Company without the consent of the holder of the account.
Assuming that they have provided you with the payment details you can simply go into the bank and pay it - you do not need to ask permission - or to comment on the fact that you are not the debtor.
If there are internet banking details provided then you can simply pay them directly (and as a mother I have indeed done this in the past)
A County Court Judgement can indeed be entered without someones knowledge, but the Companies do not care who pays then so long as they are paid - it is only when you make contact and ask questions that the Data Protection Rules cause problems.
Please ask if you need further details
