  1. This is a good point and is where you must have a good argument. Say Mike220359 (The creditor) has an improperly executed credit card agreement with Paul (The debtor), now over time Mike has given a replacement card to Paul from time to time. With the replacement card under section 85 of the CCA Mike must give a copy of the executed agreement to Paul. If (as u Know) I dont then I cannot enforce the agreement blah blah blah. Now after a further month Mike commits an offence, however enforcement may resume should production of the agreement be produced. If the original agreement was i

  2. First off welcome to the site. The first thing you need to do is remember however painful or time consuming it is - you need EVERYTHING in writing. Maybe CAB can advise of anyone in your area who could help you with letter typing? Secondly, you need to send off a CCA request to Moorcroft to get a copy of your credit agreement. It is highly possible this cannot be found. If so no-one can legally collect the debt. now this bit courtesy of CurlyBen Courtesy of Curlyben First NEVER talk to these "people" on the phone as they will try and get you to agree to anything.

  3. This is something I've touched upon on other threads and something I've been thinking about for a while but now decided to have a go and see what happens. The credit reference agencies, like any other data processor, have a duty of care to ensure that any data they process is accurate. So what happens if we serve them a notice under section 10 of the DPA to cease processing data of a defamatory nature unless they can prove it's accuracy (and merely accepting the word of a third party cannot be proof of it's accuracy). I want to (and plan to) find out what will happen and how the CRAs

  6. My claim with CAP1 had been going on for some time and had various elements to it as time went on - this meant I had to change the Particulars of Claim part of the way through my claim as matters changed. My claim was about unlawful charges, interest, PPI, Default Removal and I had asked for a copy of the CCA and had been sent a copy of an application form and a copy of a leaflet containing T&C's. (not at all what was a CCA at all). Cap1 had repaid the charges into the defaulted account and were arguing over the default removal. My line of thought was if there wasn't a relevant C

  7. Be in no doubt, this reaction has been brought about by the success of entities like the CAG. The whole debt industry is underpinned by commission based sales advisors selling debt in the form of loans, credit cards and mortgages. These salespeople get a very small basic wage with promises of huge bonuses for securing these sales. Is it any wonder then that few questions of affordability are asked? Further, is it a surprise that some advisors will lie or ask clients to lie in order to secure the loan in question? The advisor will then try and bolt on some form of astronomically expensi

  9. A lot of agreements on here are missing the creditor's signature which means the agreement is improperly executed and only enforceable by the order of a court. My question is, if the court's decision was to enforce the agreement would it be retrospective, or could we argue that whilst the agreement was improperly executed the contract could not be enforced so there was never no legal entitlement by the creditor to apply interest. Would the creditor only be allowed to enforce the agreement from the date the court makes the deceleration that the agreement is enforceable. Paul

  11. I think that much of vandermerwe's experience is typical of an attitude that is too prevalent in the NHS - that because it's free, one should not complain. Let us not forget that it's not really free; we all pay for it through our (ever-increasing) taxes and National Insurance contributions. The staff don't work there out of some philanthropic desire, but because they are paid, as in any other job. I don't see any reason at all why 'service-users' should expect anything other than the highest standards - of clinical care, of cleanliness, and of respect and courtesy. My job involves

Hi Scaredy cat - don't be scared you'll find the strength once you start finding your feet and getting the letters detailed above out:) I was getting the same amount of phone calls lastyear and it can make you start to feel ill. At the time B.T. offered me a free service called Choose to refuse. It's totally free for the first month and when the debt collectors phone all you do is simply put the phone down and put in a three digit code afterwards n they get an auto mated phone message telling them you do not wish to speak to them - it's like magic PLUS I always think it's best to have eve

  16. Sending this off will not make matters worse. You are taking control. As previously said NEVER speak to them over the phone. CCA the DCA and also SAR the RBS at the same time. When you have done this, it is a waiting game - waiting for them to make mistakes! If they do not come up with a properly executed CA they cannot claim the debt. It's not exactly wiped, but no-one can collect a debt they cannot prove is yours.If the RBS do not give you the complete sent of records under the SAR they are in breach too. For a CA send off the letter and a one pound postal order with the reas

  18. Thanks Peter. Supports my view that this won't stop enforcement, but will add to any other issues you have regarding form/content (e.g., missing prescribed terms, etc) in that it will show the Judge the Creditor hasn't executed the agreement properly. I also have to agree that this, on it's own, isn't a reason to prevent enforcement by Court order - unless the Debtor can show prejudice caused. (Which is unlikely) I think I've said as much in an earlier post here.

  19. HI Ther definition in secton 189 of unexecuted is there to illustrate the difference betwween the agreement in its various states of formation. If the agreemnet is not signed by both parties it cannot commence. If the agreement is functioning and money has beena advanced on it, you would have a very hard job indeed in convinceing the judge that the creditor did not intend to execute the agreement as no prejudice would be cause to the debtor in fact quite the contrary. This is where section 61 comes in, this ensures that the agreement contains the various items that are nessesary

  21. Hi again BabyHollie Great advice from PriorityOne xx Just a little tip from me; try to keep each lot of correspondence relating to each different creditor in a separate little file or folder, or even just a big envelope if you can. It makes things less confusing in the long run. I had 11 of them and found out the hard way when I got stuff mixed up and had to start sorting it out! (doesn't take much to confuse me ). Make sure you keep all your recorded delivery slips safe too, and receipts for postal orders, as you may need to refer to them later on if anyone is disputing

These hoops are designed to show to the local authority that you are now living in a separate "households". I would suggest that you call Community Legal Advice on 0845 345 4 345 They would be able to advise you directly on your entitlement and the application process. At the same time, call your council and ask for HB application form or check whether your council has one to download.

  27. Sorry for bamboozling you with info. Hollie.... it's a lot to take in, I know. Treat each account as a separate CCA request.... meaning that even though you have several with Moorcroft, for example, they need a separate CCA request for each account, in separate envelopes and each by rec. delivery with a £1 Postal Order. If you need any more help at this stage, just shout.

  28. If they terminate without issuing, or haven't followed the correctly prescribed process, the Default (uppercase "D"!) or Termination (uppercase "T"!) are unlawful; Failure of a Default Notice to be accurate not only invalidates the default notice (Woodchester Lease Management Services Ltd v Swain & Co NLD 14 July 1998) but is an unlawful rescission of contract which would not only prevent the Court enforcing any alleged debt, but give the Defendant a counter claim for damages. (Kpohraror v Woolwich Building Society [1996] 4 All ER 119) You'll find the templates

  30. Thanks 42Man, i will do that. One question that I've searched for and cant quite seem to find a straight answer to is:- If a DCA has failed to provide a CCA within the timescale given and you are receiving no correspondance from them, then the debt, in effect, still exists, so can they pass the account back to the OC who can then instruct a different DCA to collect? What I mean to say, for example, in this case Ruthbridge cannot supply me with a CCA - so I will report them, however the OC will still want their money so to speak so whats to stop the OC from passing the debt to anothe

A direct debit has been set up at the same manageable payment with 0% interest. No DCA to have to fob off again. I'm pleased because pre-CAG i would have just accepted it.

  38. Hi Hachi and welcome to CAG. There are a number of things you can do to help your current situation. Firstly you need to sort out a budget, have you done a statement of affairs to show your income and outgoings? Credit cards and loans are non priority debts so you need to ensure that essential bills are paid first. You also need to reserve a little bit of money for things like clothes, emergencies and a social life. Secondly you need to identify if these DCA's have the legal right to collect on the account. You can do this by asking for a copy of the credit agreement (this is required to

If I don't get a satisfactory outcome and a re-imbursement of these charges then i'll close my account forthwith and arrange to pay off the overdraft at £5 a week. They can chase me for the overdraft fees but i'll reply (sarcastically) with a letter stating that i'll wait for the outcome of the "fees" test case in the High Court before deciding to pay them or not :) . Surely it works both ways Swiss

  42. Settings & Options: Most are self-explanatory, except the bottom one, “Miscellaneous Options”. If the Message Editor Interface box doesn't already show it, then change it to “Enhanced Interface – Full WYSIWYG Editing”, it's the setting that allows you to use smilies, quotes, etc... Don't be fooled by the name, WYSIWYG is simply short for “What You See Is What You Get”. Nothing complicated there, the only thing to remember is this: The maximum size of your custom image must be 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
