    Default RBS Mint Credit Card

    Hi
    I sent a CCA Requesticon to mint for a copy of my agreement with them,i received the following from them and i wonder if what they sent is a true copy,is this just a application form copy,the box where they sign and date seems to have been cut and pasted on to the form and i can't read what,s dates there or who signed, also the credit amount thats there is wrong it was only around the 2,500 when first taken out.

    They sent you an application form.
    Also the terms and conditions on page two refer to charges of 12. Which were changed recently. But the application form is dated 2000.
    The terms and conditions/key information should be the ones that would have been from 2000 and the ones that would have been with the agreement at the time.

    They've just cobbled together a few bits to make it look like they have an enforceble agreement.

    All the pescribed terms should be on the signature document. Nowhere does it refer to the second page.

    So I would say it's unenforcable.

    Quick update on this,i sent a letter pointing out that they seem to have sent me a application form and not what i had requested,waiting to hear back from them.I then got a letter from a DCAicon telling me that they had been instructed to collect the alleged debt from by RBSicon mint on the 14th July 2008 that was the same day the letter is dated that they sent with the info shown in photos.I sent the dca a email on Monday pointing out that the account was in dispute with Rsa Mint,they replied informing me that Rbs Mint have never informed them at anytime that the account was in dispute and have returned the account to Rbs Mint.It seems strange to me that they sent it to the dca before i received the info requested,waiting now for further developments.

    Hi
    Just a quick up date,i received a lettericon back from them stating as they have supplied a copy of the credit agreement that i signed,they also included in this letter 2 pages they say are the terms and conditions when the agreement was made,have they now fullfilled there obligation.I am still a bit suspect on what they have sent on 2 matters at least,Point one on the copy of the application form next to the box with gross annual income the other box contains figures of 10,000 these figure have not been entered by me,is this the credit card limit when i took the card out,if it is it's wrong as the limit was far less than that.Point 2 the box they have signed seems to have been copied and pasted in there,i can't make out the person who signed or the date signed

    Hi, its all smoke and mirrors mate, if the last box on the app form doesnt say prescribed terms overleaf (which i cant read) then its unenforceable and can only be decided upon in court

    Thanks for your reply credit,it does say prescribed terms overleaf,i still don't understand which of the 2 pages sent this refers to,i about to send a letter to them asking for clarification on 3 points on the application form sent.I thought i had read somewhere that any credit agreement before 2005 must contain the t & c within the document and not on a seperate page.Will let you know when i hear back from them.

Very hard to see, but it looks as if there is a statement which says "I accept and agree to be bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately, and the details of the card as set out overleaf...." So where is the copy of the details overleaf? Even if they can supply the separate general conditions applicable at the time you took the card, IMHO that would not make the agreement enforceable in court, as they would actually have to be able to show what was being referred to overleaf. So it seems they would have to provide the original 2-sided document to prove their claim in court. Although they may not yet have provided you with a copy of the other side of the application, it does not mean they don't have it, or the original, so I guess you need to pressurize them into supplying a copy of the other side. i about to send a letter to them asking for clarification on 3 points on the application form sent.I thought i had read somewhere that any credit agreement before 2005 must contain the t & c within the document and not on a seperate page.Will let you know when i hear back from them.

    Hi Rob,thanks for your reply.

    what does the text say to the left of the box you are referring to? The '10,000' looks very neat and may have been filled in as an example
    There is no text just 10000

    Point 2 the box they have signed seems to have been copied and pasted in there,i can't make out the person who signed or the date signed

    I think it as been copied and pasted as well and i can't make out who as signed it or the date it looks like 2000 but the date i can't make out.

    "I accept and agree to be bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately, and the details of the card as set out overleaf...

    This is the text from the declaration box.

    I apply for an RBSicon Avanta Card and PIN to be issued to me .I accept and agree to be
    bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately amd the details
    about the card as set out uverleaf both as may be amended from time to time.If i have
    applied for a Gold Card and my application is not approved,I confirm that this form is
    am application to be issued with your classic credit card.If requested i hereby autirise
    you issue am addional RBS Avanta Card (of the same type issued to me) to the person
    named for use on my RBS Advanta Card account.I confirm that my personal informationmay be used as described in the Data Protection box above.I understand that for protection of customers and RBS Advanta the information i have supplied is checked and if any substantial
    differences are revealed the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance System will be informed.

    Hi

    I was just re-emphasising what had already been said in the thread regarding the details of the card as set out overleaf as without seeing them you obviously do not know what they are (and neither would the Judge ). Unless RBS can show what those terms were, they cannot prove anything, so you need to insist on receiving the 'other side' of the application form.

    Cheers

    You've done the right thing.

    Keep up the dispute unless they provide something that's properly enforceable.

    They'll try any tricks to con you into paying something.

    If you feel brave enough, invite them to take you to court and prove it there. Most of them will decline that offer. Some of them have realised that taking on a CAGicon member is getting a bit too expensive.
