  1. Hi Laiste I rang the court, they advised me the latest date to submit my daughters defence is 4.00pm Friday 6th July. I can see how busy you are but do you think you may be able to help me. Kind regards.
  2. Thanks for your input Mincemeat it does make for an interesting debate, it would be good to keep the debate going especially with some input from some of the legal experts. I will however keep a lid on the age thing for now as I dont want to risk anything nasty happening to my daughter, even though it annoys me the fact that a minor can be allowed to do something like this so easily without these companies doing the proper checks.
  3. The date my daughter signed the agreement was 28/4/2005, the signature on behalf of GE Capital is also dated 28/4/2005, this must mean that it was signed by someone in the shop on the day. Is this allowed? A Are they allowed to sign on behalf of the finance company? I thought in these circumstances the documents were sent onto the finance company for them to sign and execute the agreement then send a copy onto the customer?
  4. Her date of birth on the form is incorrect, it should be 87 not 86. At the time she had a Electron Card that does show the Visa logo on it. Thanks
  5. Phoned the Court, the deadline for submitting the defence is Friday 6th July at 4.00pm. My daughter signed the agreement on 28/04/2005 it was signed on behalf of GE on the same day. Even though its hard to read my scan it does show the APR. We have not received a statement of account, details of charges added to the account from Howard Cohen. Let me know if any other information would help. Thanks for all your help. Kind regards
  6. Thanks for your replies. I will nip home at lunchtime to check the dates etc as detailed above. I am worried about the deadline for submiting my daughters defence, from what I can work out this is due on Thursday 5th July. :o
  7. Hi all. Wow I've started an interesting debate here! Just had a reply from the letter I had sent, posted earlier in the thread, I have scaned two of the pages in below. The other pages were a Deed of Assignment between GE Capital and CL Finance this is 6 pages long so I did not scan it in. My daughter has never received anything in writing from them relating to the agreement being assigned. Is it right what they say regarding having to send £10 for the SAR and sending the information within 40 days? Surely now it is subject to legal proceedings they have to provide this information without charge and within a quicker timescale than 40 days. There was no other information provided. Thanks for all your help people
  8. I have been discussing with my daughter about what happened when she applied for the store card. When she was paying at the till she was asked if she wanted to open an account to get 10% off, at first she said no but the shop assistant was quite pushy, my daughter agreed. When it came apparant she was only 17 it was the shop assistant who suggested she lied on the form! I assume she did not want to loose out on her commission and I know these shops set their staff targets for these store cards so the pressure is always on to get customers signed up. The only id they took from her was a Visa Electron card, she did not have a driving licence neither was she on voters roll. The first time the card was used for a purchase she was 18.
  9. Hi and thanks for all your help. Sent the letter as detailed above by special delivery so we will wait and see what they come up with. Something that came to light today is the fact that my daughter was only 17 when she took out the store card, she lied on the application form!!! I dont know what impact this may have, can someone advise? Thanks:)
  10. I'm going to pm Laiste to see if I can hijack a letter she had done for Electric Lemon that I think is applicable in my daughter's case, I have amended it slightly but it reads as follows. Miss XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX 7th May 2007 Claim Number: XXX XXXXX Account Number: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX Dear Sir/Madam I have received the Court claim filed by your company.

Additionally, as the information requested contains sensitive personal details, I expect it to be sent by guaranteed next day delivery, to ensure its safe arrival. Yours faithfully, Miss XXXXX
  11. The account was opened around Feb 2005, she did not use it until May 06 when she took the balance to £148.19. She then almost straight away started to default on the payments. Since then late payment charges, interest and account cover (I assume payment protection) have been added each month. A default notice was issued by GE Money in Sept 06, no balance showed on the notice just the arrears. She had been making some payments since then but I assume interest and charges had continued to be added as the balance reached £240.16. The particulars of the claim are as follows, They state in the particulars that it was assigned to the claimant on the 30th May 07 and that notice was given to the defendant, this has never been received. I hope this gives enough information. Many thanks to you all.
  12. Thanks for your assistance, how nice it is to know there are so many people willing to help and provide much needed advice.
  13. Does this mean it wont show with the Credit Reference Agencies? If thats the case I'm more inclined to give them a run for thier money in the court. I just dont want her to run the risk of having a CCJ on her credit file at such a young age.
  14. Thanks for all your replies people What if I was to try and negotiate a reduced settlement with the claimant? Is this something they are likely to enter into and would this avoid the judgement?
  15. Thanks for your reply. Yes its from Northampton Bulk Centre. If we send the AOS stating she intends to defend the claim then they produce the CCA and its correct will she then get a CCJ and does this remove our opportunity to settle the claimant without a judgement?
