  1. GETTING MCOL RIGHT If you have a choice, it is always preferable to file using N1 at your local court. The two main disadvantages with MCOL are that your Particulars of Claim are limited to just 1080 characters with a maximum of 24 lines and you cannot attach the schedule of charges to your claim. Both these drawbacks can create problems later on. The banks use these limitations of MCOL to assert, with some justification, that the claim has not been fully particularised. Therefore I would strongly advise you to file at your local court. It will be transferred here eventually an

  6. Hi Flower, Lets get this sorted. It's exactly what was done to DH & I & ours was removed within 2 weeks. I think the defaults originate from our good friend Lesley ;-) One last attempt to turn the knife. 1st, don't deal with collections, they are an entity all to themselves & don't have a clue what to do with regard to anything other than taking debit card details, means statements etc. so cut them out of the loop completely. Phone cutomer services, just the normal YB call centre number & ask to be put through to Clydesdale Customer Services in Glasgow. Carefu

  10. Make sure you go to your bank/bs and tell them about this! I think you'ld be better putting a permenant block on MBNA's DD or they will just come and take it and to hell with you, don't think will they/won't they coz they will! When I was having prob's with MBNA they actually 'phoned my work and asked to speak with my manager and then told him to call me to the office to speak with them! If they do steal £120 from your account don't forget the Direct Debit Guarentee Scheme, but it's best not relying on that as you may incur charges. Block it! The prior advise is spot on, wa

  11. Our was a £200 credit limit as well and over £700 of charges. Our balance is at £0 now and we don't use the card. In our good will gesture they said they would credit the account but as we don't use the card I am hoping they will send a check (for the full amount though). most of the charges were added just one day before the payments to them cleared as well. so because the payment was just 1 day late, 'that will be £20 please' and oh that took you over your limit so thats another £20 please'. daylight robbery isn't it. Any way Good luck Minimaya Let's get back what we deserve.

  16. Hi I made a help post earlier regarding my offer! The bank manager was very nice but kept going on about going over my overdraft limit. He rang me and repeated again about me going over my overdraft limit and offered me 50% £1,600. I have turned that down and have not heard anything else.. so its a waiting game now. I know from other people who have dealt with the Northern bank that they alway start with a low offer.. So waiting to see what happens now!! Cia

Blah ! the Abbey have decided to settle my claim - - - Hold on its not that good. They are going to pay me £970 which was for a claim for £3,800 . Ms Kirkman has decided that she will just cross out the estimated charges of 5 yrs totaling £2,700 - I know estimated charges are difficult to reclaim as the burden of proof is on the claimant, and therefore there is little hope I would get that amount in court , but I hoped they may a least made me a bigger offer to settle.

  20. hi leyh, did the settlement letter they sent to you, there was probably a sentence to the effect that you would not claim again for the period they settled, so i think as you have signed the letter as full and final, you won't be able to take them to court over the same claim - which is what it is. try some more email addresses and see if you get a response - it's so annoying when they don't do what they're supposed to isn't it, but i think they're so snowed under with claims at the moment, they're dealing with the 'further down the line' court stuff. I hope you hear something very soon

  29. ok, here's i would do: 1. ring the court and Tell them you wish to delay the deadline for the court bundle for one week to reach a resolution as you have received an offer and responded to it. They will probably ask for it in writing and then send a note to the court referencing your claim number - let them know you have received an offer and are in touch with DG and expect a resolution very soon and will write to them again when it has been received and ask them then to halt the claim at the point when the money has been received. 2. i'd give it one last ditch effort with this

Yes you must send the schedule to DG even though they are HSBC's in house solicitors, HSBC are not responsible for sending the particulars of your claim, i would post it recorded delivery and also fax a copy to the lovely Debbie D'Aubney on 0121 455 2150. you will also need to post 2 copies to your court - if done by MCOL it will be Northampton county court if handed in it will be whatever court you gave it in at. M ake sure you do both ASAP as DG will try every trick in the book to delay your claim if this has helped please click my scales

  33. S.A.R. all the original creditors, then claim the refund of charges from these accounts with contractual interest to get as much refund as possible. If the refund wipes out the debt you are laughing, if not it reduces it somewhat I have around 10/11 creditors and they will all be getting the same treatment and I have let them know this too! I think what got me really *issed was when barclays/1st credit threatened me with bankruptcy for a £1400 debt Even though the debt is now owned by the DCA, IF YOU PAID ANY/ALL MONIES TO THE ORIGINAL CREDITOR then stick the claim to them.

  35. you can record any of your telephone calls as long as you are one of the parties. As a private individual you do not have to say you are recording the call.You may not let anyone else listen to the recording without the other persons permission but you may write out a transcript. In my experience it is sometimes worth saying you are recording the call and asking them if they object as the service you then get is unbelievable and they can't do enough for you

  36. I addition to Harvest comment i had a second lot of statements from FD a week after the first and as i was out when the courier tried to deliver they went to my next door neighbours house and they signed for them. Bit of a security breach there i think. Especially as i had to do a 30 mile round trip to go to the courier's depot to pick the first lot up and i had to produce ID. Same courier company both times. Consistentcy doesn't seem to be around does it? Good luck TINHAT with your claim.

  37. Welcome to the group "standingupformyself", The best way to get feedback on your specific claims is to start your own threads on each claim, by the way. The banks and CC's take varied amounts of time to reply. I am currently pursuing the same 2 companies as yourself - MBNA and Abbey. MBNA responded in time, but incorrectly, and Abbey failed to reply in time so I have sent an LBA (a Letter Before Action) today. If you search for my username, you will find these threads.

The 40 days are from the date they received the letter (if you sent if special delivery or signed for you can count this from the day after you posted it. 2. I received my statements by courier within 7 days. 3 Weeks later I received them by courier (again). 3. You do have to sign for them (I don't think it can be someone else but might depend on the courier service). If you're out they'll leave instructions for you to collect them from the courier's depot or a mutually convenient time for them to re-deliver the parcel. I had to show I

After all the complicated arguments about unauthorised contractual interest, I am not going to go back for more.

  46. Hi Ste, The N1 is a paper Court Claim, while the MCOL is Money Claim Online, so they are one and the same thing. Once your claim is served then a Judge has to decide which Court Track your case should follow. If your claim is less than 5K then it goes to the Small Claims Court, but above that figure then it can (but not always)go on the Fast Track. The essential difference for you is that in the Fast Track you can be liable for costs up to a maximum of 750 pounds depending on the value of your claim. The advantage for you is twofold. One, you can claim costs which you can't in the SC, and
