Unsure how to proceed with Barclaycard...

I moved house a few months ago but forgot to tell Barclaycard. Now I've stopped paying them, (along with a couple of other companies, but they know my new address and I am in "discussions" with them) but am not sure whether I should start sending out notices or wait for them to find me! My barclaycard was taken out 12 years ago with a very low limit, although it is much higher now! I'm sure I never signed anything as the card came with a Barclays student account. So they certainly won't have a signed agreement which means it'll be more straightforward for me to win against them. But the question is whether I just wait for them to find me - as there's no contract why should I chase them? Also, I have been unable to retrieve any letters they might have sent to my old address so have no option of "replying" to a demand for payment. Really don't know what to do for the best... Any advice would be most appreciated!

As you already have plenty on the go at the moment, I think that I would be inclined to let sleeping dogs lie for the time being. After all, it is your own 'money' you borrowed so you shouldn't have a conscience, just in case you thought I was being dishonourable.

Let us know what you decide to do.

As nameless says ... go at your own speed.

But don't ever take on too much in one go.

Many others are taking on Barclaycard et al.

I'm just a bit confused. You say they know your new address ... and then suggest the possibility of "waiting for them to find you"?

Sorry, I meant the other companies know my new address. Barclaycard don't. I think I'll just leave this one alone until they manage to trace me (or not). Then I'll ask for the Agreement, which I know doesn't exist. Thanks for the advice :grin:

Would you consider using the remittance slip as a cheque? There is quite a lot of discussion at the moment regarding these.
