If you have taken credit facilities then you have to pay the Bank.Now,you can ignore the unknown man and talk direct with the Bank for settlement of your account.Generally Bank does not prefer to file a case against the Credit Card holder for lengthy process,but they can take legal action against you.

Have you been issued a legal notice by a lawyer of the bank? Unless and until you are issued a legal notice do not bother about anything. If legal notice is issued then let the bank take out recovery proceedings against you, which you can contest by taking multiple defences.

1) claim of bank is barred by limitation . 
2) i presume you have not signed any letter acknowledging your   liability  after default occurred in 2003
