  1. Yeah, that was my intention. However, they haven't written to me in ages (my mum said the last letter she can remember was around Aug 2008 ) I find this very strange that I've had no contact (lucky, I know) The main thing that's bothering me is that this default is now the only "bad" thing on my file. I got myself registered with the electoral roll, I paid y debts + closed all credit cards and my other contracts (mobile phone, Virgin media etc have never missed a payment) I just want to get this either: paid + amended or marked as unenforceable and amended. ah!!
  2. Hi, having a bit of a bother with CL Finance. They registered a default of £269 back in March 08 They were attempting to contact me at my mum's address ( I moved out in 2007) It was for a GE storecard, and when contacted them, apparantly I had to contact Santander, who in turn didn't have a clue. I don't have any letters for CL, my mum went on a mega de clutter and chucked them all out... great! It's on my credit file as CL Finance + there's the last 4 digits of my acc/reference number with them. Sorry for rambling, but what I'm asking, can I send a CCA request without the refeence number? I have my name, the date defaulted, address registered at, D.O.B etc Will they issue it?? I really really don't want to call CL/Lewis group 'cause I don't want them to have my current address or number. please help! ps - reason I'm looking to CCA is that my agreement was taken out in Jan 2007 + I read something about requesting 'true terms' or something before paying to establish whether it's enforceable?
  3. I just cancelled my 2 credit cards with RBS + Barclays. I was not using them, RBS used more often but Barclay's had been £0.77 in credit for 14 months. They tried to get me to keep it open with different rates/offers etc (has anyone noticed how difficult it is to get your accounts closed?!) I must say, the knowledge that I can't just go and purchase some random thing I don't really need is amazing. I've even opened a wee savings account to fund some travelling later this year. I'm now debt free, which is, as others have said, a great feeling. Good luck to everyone 2010, let's hope this is a lovely debt free/ DCA free year for all.
  4. Yep, I'm the same, have worked for both T-mobile and o2. I agree, the full internet access with t-mobile it would be VERY easy to copy bank details. Funnily enough though, people calling o2 payments line always seem to be annoyed when we state that we can't store card details for future. Personally, I would be very worried and angry if any random employee could view my card number, security numbers etc. hmm.
  5. yeah, I don't actually have any old letters. i mean, if I have to, I'm not opposed to paying the debt, just now all these extra charges that are there.
  6. Hi I defaulted on a GE store card back in 2008 + at the time I was living with my parents, however, they have not received any letters/calls regarding this in months. It's shwoing as defaulted on my credit file and I want to get this cleared up. However, I don't know who owns it! it says CL Finance on my credit file, but I cannot contact them as I don't have their numbers or any of my account details. Also, this agreement was taken out in Febuary 2007 + I was reading that it may be unenforceable or something? The balance was around £150 and now it's defaulted at £269 and I've no idea what those extra charges are. How do I sort this? Any help would be very appreciated
  7. this happened to my boyfriend when he tried to get some pc related thing from ebuyer, he was annoyed at first but it was just to guard against fraud as his card address + billing address weren't matching. He reordered on the tuesdau and the pc was at his flat on wed - pretty good me thinks!
  8. Hi, I live alone and I am a full time student for 24 weeks and 21 hours+ per week. I have filled in all my forms, had my lecturer sign then, all handed in and told it was smashing. however, on 9.10.09 I received 2 council tax letters from glasgow city council. One stated that I had a full exemption on basis of being a student and my balance due for 09/10 = £0.00 The other said that I had a balance of £111.50 due as a single persons discount was applied. Both letters were dated the same day, I assumed they have accidently processed a 25% discount first (and an automated letter was generated) and then noticed and rectified. Alas, this morning I returned form work to find a letter from Scott +Co stated a Sheriff Warrant has been granted (????) and that the balance of £111.50 is owing. I just want to check this out, I mean I have been a full time student last year and this year. If I owe it I have no issues paying, but I don't want my bank account frozen or credit file affected. Any help would be much appreciated. Amanda x
  9. Thanks for the replies, sorry it's taken me so long! The issue was mainly that I received a letter of Satisfaction from my creditor (SAAS) which contained absolutely everything needed (decree number, court, date granted, date paid etc) and it had details to send to the Registry Trust to have it amended. However, the letting agency had completed the credit check through a company who kept asking for a letter from the "county court" to which I nearly exasperated myself explaining in Scotland...we don't have em!!! Long story short, I went to the Sheriff Court and a very nice Sheriff Clerk stamped + signed my documents and offered to call this company for me and I'm now in my flat. what a hassle! i willl never ever ever ever ignore a summons (hopefully as i won't get one) I wish I had not been 18 when I received it = young and scared.
  10. If you were advised that the PAC must be activated within 30 days or your contract would continue on a rolling month to month basis, and then you didn't activate that PAC within 30 days, unfortunately you're going to have to pay the bill. Using the excuse that you tried but couldn't get through won't really wash to be honest (o2 do have international C.S numbers...)
  11. DSR would be enforce here, as she's taken her goods over the phone without seeing them (o2 do operate this way by the way, all their calls are recorded and kept for 12 months and they do offer a cool off periods on upgrades) I would suggest actioning a complaint in writing and also doing a SAR.
  12. Yeah, you will still be responsible for the bill. However, the best way to approach this would be to give them a call when you receive the bill and explain the situation. Don't be angry or anything towards the person you're speaking to, if you explain the situation and state how upset you are you've never had a bill this large before etcetc they may recalculate it under a "bill shock". (I work for a mobile provider and this happens AAALLL the time) The key is to be VERY nice to customer services.
  13. Hi, I have a CCJ from 2007 which I paid 5 months later to the creditor directly and receive a statement showing the account settled. (and I know this is my fault, I have dragged my feet getting it marked as satisfied. so stupid) However, I just found out that my application to a letting agency has been declined because of this. I offered to show the proof from creditor it was paid etc they said they need to letter of satisfaction from the court. I've tried contacting them today, they are shut so I am going to the court in person tomorrow. I am just wondering if I show my proof and pay my fee can they issue a satisfaction letter on the day (tomorrow) as my letting agency are unwilling to wait any longer and I will lose my flat and deposit so gutted. (I'm in Scotland btw) any help would be MUCH appreciated.
  14. Yeah, I'll need to watch what I say, it's in my contract that I can't participate in online discussions about the beloved company. There are people who 'police' websites... personally, I reckon that's a bit sad but oh well.
  15. I'm a callcentre monkey.. for... dare I say it... WESCOT :eek::eek: don't hate me though, it's strictly a part time "get me through Uni number", we all have to make a wage someway, even in the most soul destroying place known to mankind. The place is a joke, the processes are RIDICULOUS and the managers well, let's snigger at that. Can you really call someone who makes £15000 a year a manager? I think not. :D
