  1. I've just checked my credit report on Equifax, Experian and Noddle. There is no record of this loan on my credit report.....Does this mean it no longer exists or what? I am confused....
  2. Picture went bust initially and their portfolio was picked up by Webb...then debt was assigned to IDEM. I rceived a letter of assignationand it all appears to be above board.
  3. They have no client. They bought the debt from webb resolutions who bought it from Target whou bought it from Picture Ltd who bought it from Picturetheloan
  4. UPDATE: I am now in a position to offer all (or almost all) of the arrears on this account. I can start to make the regular monthly payments once I have cleared the arrears , and the loan term will expire in December this year. However, due to the arrears, IDEM have continued to charge interest and will say that I still owe them about £20,000. Some of this (a VERY small portion) will be charges which are possibly able to be claimed back) , but the main part is interest on the outstanding loan piling up due to the arrears. Now, I recall reading somewhere that the
  5. If you are trying to get the debt extinguished due to mis-selling, what money is there to get from the company that a claims firm will take 25% of?
  6. They WILL try to grind you down by dragging things out : adjourn for 6 weeks to get some documentation sorted , adjourn fvor 6 weeks to let you read thru the documentation they sent you, adjourn for 6 weeks because of a case they have involving children that must take precedence over your case, etc etc . (these are ALL tactics Shoosmiths used against me) What they are really doing here is trying to get as many appearance dates as possible, in the hope that you will not turn up or be late for one of them and they will win the case by default. But they are only kicking
  7. Just a quickie about decree of absolvitor: Sherriff does not have it within her power at a summary cause to grant this decree unless the case has been fully heard by the court. But Sheriff CAN dismiss it, for any procedural reason and the SB clock starts running again . The pursuer can then issue a new summons to start the procedure again from scratch - but this will likely take some time. so...if you have a few reasons to have it dismissed, use only ONE of them at a time so that you can get the clock started. As you are VERY close to SB in Scotland, it sh
  8. I'm tied up with stuff until Monday, but I'll have a detailed look thru your posts then and if I can give any helpful info gained from my own recent court cases, I'll pitch in
  9. I fully expect to get another letter from Arrow, telling me to pay this debt or they may take court action against me. I'll be more than happy to go through this procedure again and get more expenses from them the next time
  10. Hi elsi, Can you give any update on this please?
  11. Can't offer any advice on this just now, but I am thinking of pursuing a similar strategy with my own secured debt. I will watch your thread with interest. Please update regularly
  12. Consumer credit agreement regulations 2010 s10.12 states that prescribed terms which must be included in the document are: The amount of credit or credit limit.
  13. SB, I'm not sure if someone has mentioned this in the thread so far, but one thing to check on any CCA your opponents may have sent you, is that the credit limit is clearly stated on the CCA. If this is not stated, then they do not have an enforceable CCA, and therefore, no case against you.
  14. actually, the rules state that a copy of the agreement must be attached to the summons. BUT...the sherrif can overlook this if he or she is so inclined. BUT, if they overlook this, and yo ueventually lose your case, you will have a point of law to put on your appeal.
  15. Today I attended at court for the Proof Hearing. Before I describe what happened, here's what happened yesterday: I received a mobile call from Shoosmiths (acting for Arrow Global). The girl tells me that she has a document on her desk that I asked previously to see, and if I give her my email addy, she will send it to me. I asked her was this a document she intended to produce in court. She says yes. I tell her I am not interested in seeing it and if she tries to introduce it as evidence, I will object as I have not had it 14 days befor ethe date of the proof and
  16. The clock stops once the case is lodged. If that is within 5 years, even by one day, then the case is not SB.
  17. Yesterday I received the productions that Shoosmiths have lodged for the proof hearing. They consist of an unsigned credit card agreement with the terms and conditions attached, and one sheet of paper with dates that the credit card was taken out, my name and address, and a figure that is owed on the account. (I believe this is what they claim is the statement of account.) Proof hearing is in approx 3 weeks time.
  18. Just an update on my case: I attended court this morning for a proof hearing. The other side mumbled something to the sheriff and the sheriff told me that the case was being put back for 3 months. She gave me a jargoned reason but I didn't understand what she meant and when I asked, she just repeated herself. I think I'll go back to the court building and ask if I can get a transcript of the hearing so I know why this proof hearing was postponed.
  19. For the past 5 months, I have been sitting in the public gallery (not non-stop!) of small/summary/ordinary claims to get a feel for the procedures and to try to see what advantages I can gain by with my own arguments. What I have learned is that sheriffs here seem to decide cases using their own common sense and what they personally believe the truth to be. I have seen all sorts of incorrect documentation allowed to be used in cases, and I have seen proper legal arguments with precedents and citations from ACTS being poo-pooed by sheriffs. In cases where it is one person against anot
  20. One point about the rules stipulating that a copy of the agreement must be attached to the writ: Although this is correct, it also states in the the rules that the sheriff can overlook anything that he/she thinks is an oversight or a mistake and allow the case to proceed. This is exactly what happened to me at my hearing. The other side did not attach a copy of the agreement to my wit, so I had the paragraph in the ACT printed out and highlighted for the sheriff and a copy for the other side too, but the sheriff merely glanced at it and said that she was allowing the ca
  21. I sent a letter explaining the reasons for the arrears and I made a F&F offer. It has been rejected. The company want me to fill out an income/expenditure form to see what affordable repayments can be made.
  22. No agreement was attached to my original summons and I argued that the claimant had broken the rules and therefore I asked for a decree absolvitor, citing the exact paragraph, and giving a copy of the ACT that states this rule to the Sheriff. The Sheriff glanced at it and decided to overlook it and allow the case to continue. (This is the sheriff's right to do this as written in the same ACT)
  23. Your case is proceeding pretty much exactly as mine is with Arrow/Santander. Expect at the next hearing the sheriff will not grant your request for a dismissal, but will instead set a PROOF hearing in which the Claimant will need to send you and the court any documents they intend to use at the PROOF hearing as proof that you owe them. They must send you these documents before 14 days before the PROOF hearing. You must also submit any documents or other evidence you intend to produce at the PROOF hearing. You must lodge these with the court (and a copy to the Claimants reps) at least 14
  24. I am fully aware that I can claim back charges. That is not the issue I was asking opinions on: I'm looking for opinions on this: If I want opinions/advice on claiming charges back, I will ask for that, but for the moment I wish to concentrate on the above please. Thank You for your input which I do appreciate, and apologies if I sound brusque, but I did explain all of this in a previous post.
