Hello, I just got a letter 1/24/2019 from the lovely Hunt & Henriques notifying me of their "intent to sue and incur court costs" on behalf of their client "portfolio recovery associates llc" for my old credit card debit (which was $1,400) of $1,842 from a Barclay card opened up fall of 2013. I've made no contact with H & H. I have tried over and over to find out when my last payment was on the Barclay card, but I am almost certain it was 4 years ago, give/take a few months. I'm in CA and I know the statue of limitations is 4 years, which I'm at or, darn close to it. This debt has gone through a few collection agencies so it's not even barclay that's suing me, they sold my debt a while ago. I have read that I need to send a DV letter initially. My questions: What should the letter say? How can I verify when my last payment to Barclay was? They locked my account so I cannot see any transactions. After I send the letter, I'm sure those money hungry jerks will respond. What do I do after that? How can I drag this out to the 4 year mark so the debt falls off? Does it actually "fall off" my credit or stay on it as an unpaid but closed debt? Any help will be appreciated Thank you kind souls!!
