Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Have they provided any evidence on how the loan has arisen? Have they said they have purchased the debt? Do you have any assets in the UK? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. I would contact them and say the following:
- Say that it is a criminal offence to unlawfully harass someone for debt under S.40 Administration of Justice Act 1970;
- Say that they have provide no evidence of the debt or that it is even enforceable in the UK;
- Say you are in no position to consider anything they say when they have clearly made no effort to substantiate their claims;
- Say if they contact you again with such spurios claims you reserve the right to report them to the SRA.
If they sue you in the UK, you will have to respond and defend the claim. Ultimately it is their client's prerogative to bring such a claim.
Kind regards AJ
