  2. Hello there! I have an odd question for all you very knowledgable people - actually it's more about honesty but here goes. As you can see from my title, I won both my claims in early July via HSBC's solicitors - all money was put straight into my HSBC account. All finished. Or so I thought. On Monday, I got a letter directly from HSBC saying that due to all the banks going together for a trail judgement (or words to that effect), this was the last offer they would make! They are offering me over £2000 against one of my already settled claims. Now my good angel says don't take it - it would be dishonest (and it would) and they would catch me out and I'd end up having to pay it back. BUT my naughty angel is saying that if they don't know what THEY have already put into my account why sholdn't I. Is there any kind of precident for this or do you think HSBC are losing the plot? All advice, as always, much appreciated.
  3. Hi, mine went to the wire as well (only because DG forgot about one of my claims and mixed up the dates with the other), but I've won 2 claims at the same time and am now over £5700 better off. Don't give up - you do get your money. The people on this forum are so helpful - THANKS!
  4. PS - Can a Moderator please change my title to ***WON*** thank you
  5. Hey there Well, I've only gone and done it! It got down to the wire - my court case was today (Thursday 5th) at 12am so yesterday I called the court and explained that the solicitors had their cases mixed up and that I didn't want to waste the Judges time but didn't want to close the case untill DG had sorted out their mistake. DG were of course ignoring me. But the VERY helpful people at Haywards Heath County Court gave me a number for DG so I managed to leave several messages. DG then phoned the court (while I was talking with the court) and then called me back 5 minutes later with an offer. They sent me an email, I accepted and by 4:30 the day before court - it's all over. The money from the first case is now in my bank and I expect that this claim will be in the bank by Monday. A donation will be winging it's way to this site. A GIANT THANK YOU to all of you that have helped me without you I would have bottled it ages ago! Next step is to sort out other half's Ltd company - but I'll start another thread for that.... HANG In there folks - they do pay out in the end
  6. Hi All I've received a letter from DG offering me the full amount (YAY! ) - but for my other claim (joint a/c)which isn't due in court until 24th July. They have all the details correct except they have put the court date as 5th July which is my other claim (single a/c). So, I am going to send them a fax tomorrow confirming acceptance of their offer but highlight in very big letters that in fact they have the dates mixed up and we still face a court date on 5th July. What do you think?
  7. Thanks for your advice. I have pm'd my email address so will use tomorrow to print and collate and contact the court tomorrow. I will also post here tomorrow re my second claim which is due a court bundle soon although the letter from the court is different and the process seems different. Confusion reigns!
  8. Ok mindless rambling over. I've seen the link about court bundles for dummies and it would seem that I have fallen short of that mark. I talked with the court and they said that my schedule of charges was enough and that I should bring the original statements to court with me and that would be fine. It would seem not. So, for court case on 5th July where "each party shall deliver to every other party and to the court office copies of all documents on which he intends to rely at the hearing no later than 14 days before the hearing" I have missed the deadline - Any suggestions on how best to proceed? Thank you
  9. My court case for the first account is on 5th July. I've sent them two nudge letters and haven't heard anything at all. Is it offically time for me to start panicking? Should I start preparing my court bundle for 5th - oh me oh my - just found out I'm pregnant (YAY) but my hormones are all over the place and I'm seriously seriously scared and stressed (about the court case not the pregnancy ) I know I'm rambling but that's what nerves do to me! Any help as always would be very greatly received.
  10. Thanks for the reassurance everyone. Sent off my nudge letters (no response yet) and will send another off early next week. Will be a bit sooner than the 10 days everyone recommends but time is a marching....
  11. One other thing... On the Notice of Allocation to the Small Claims Track (Hearing) - it says "If the hearing goes ahead it will be for directions only" What does that mean?
  12. Thanks! - I'm typing as we speak!!! Do you get all these fees back - so far I've spent £240 on MCOL and now £200 on allocation fees ?
  13. HELP PLEASE Ok, I have a guilty and stupid confession - life caught up with me and I haven't done any nudge letters (I said it was stupid). I now have a letter from the Haywards Heath county court wanting my £100 allocation fee by 20th June and I have a court date of 5th July (that's for one of my cases, I expect the other will arrive in a couple of days) What do I do? shall I start FRANTIC nudge letters - modifying the base one to indicate that now we have a date lets get this sorted. To be honest I'm wondering if I should have accepted their earlier offer - I know that sounds defeatest, but it's getting a little scary. Any help would as ALWAYS be appreciated. Thanks
