Customer Question

Nearly 6 years ago i took out a provident loan of £500 the interest was extortionate and was supposed to pay back over £1000.. I never paid anything back and was under the impression that it would be cleared off my file this February. Only a few days ago i received two letters one from the debt collection agency they had passed it on to and another from a court in Northampton or norwich threatening with a ccj if its not paid in full by mid November.. Is this possible for them to do this and can they give me a ccj so close to the 6 year period in witch its meant to be cleared of my file?

For it to clear in February it must be around February 2010 id imagine?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

Ok - they can issue proceedings at ANY point UP to 6 years.

So if they do that then you will be liable.
After 6 years then it is out of time.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
