  1. This fella is ringing from a mobile number and he just had that debt collector tone to him.... I just thought it would have been sufficient time since the offer from Nolans for them to instruct some kind of doorstep botherer He gives his name as Eric but I can't hear his surname properly...
  2. Thats very helpful DX thank you. It could well be just a Spam call, albeit I think this fella tried off a few different numbers today.... So long as I know my wife isn't going to get some goon on the doorstep while i'm at work.
  3. OK, so I ignored their offer in March. I have started getting voice messages from an authoritive sounding Glaswegian fella who does not tell me what company he is from or what he needs to speak to me about. My suspicious side is guessing he is linked somehow to the Nolans/MEIII situation. I have not rang him back. My question is this - if Nolans have now sold it to or instructed one of these legal thugs (debt collectors) can he turn up at the house and walk away with the telly?
  4. Would it be prudent for me to respond in writing to them? Even just a statement of my disappointment that they disagree with the Sheriffs assertions and timescales? If nothing else it would cost MEIII more money for N0lans to respond?
  5. That's pretty much what I thought - veiled threat. But does their 'threat' carry any credence?
  6. Aaaaaaaaaaand they're back again.... Tenacious little souls. Any thoughts/opinions appreciated. scan0013.pdf scan0014.pdf
  7. Isn't it madness.! Surely someone at ME III or Nolans is keeping tot of the costs so far and makes a decision to bin it when, in the event of success, the debt wont even recoup the costs?? I think their costs are capped at £150 or thereabouts even if they are awarded them.
  8. Thanks DX. So to summarise the costs ME III will meet so far for the two claims: N0lans Local Solicitor (twice) Claim to bring case to court cost? (twice)
  9. £427...!!! I had been thinking a hundred quid max.! My case was dealt with first and I was out the door in ten minutes. Yes a very well respected local solicitor (not junior) If she does charge 427 then her bill alone will almost cost the alleged debt.! Thats without N0lans bill... I'm guessing the Sheriff Officer will charge as well though?
  10. Yes, I see I did in fact say that .! I was typing whilst walking back to the car..!! Must have auto corrected it.. Definitely NO expenses...
  11. Their representative suggested that they needed 30 - 60 days to acquire the relevant documentation Andy, I have a feeling that's when the sheriff lost interest. We've now had 2 bailiff letters delivered to the door and they've had to pay a local 'very qualified and respected' solicitor twice to appear for them. Surely when their costs are capped in the event of success they must now have to take a holistic approach to the matter??
  12. No, the Sheriff didn't award any costs at all. He did ask me if I had incurred any but didn't think a CAG donation would cut any mustard with him so i'll happily suffer that myself.!
  13. SECOND CLAIM DISMISSED. The Sheriff seemed far from impressed that N0lans had implied that his 21 days was not adequate to get the requested information and as such dismissed the claim. However, did make it clear to me that they could still yet return with a third claim.......
  14. Can he still dismiss/pause before Tuesday? It's just so close. Should I drop the courts an email before Tuesday highlighting the claimants have not supplied the docs? Or will I just rub the Sheriff up the wrong way if I do....
  15. OK, so this Tuesday (day after tomorrow) sees me back in front of the Sheriff for the next CMD. The last time I was advised to come back with a defence. He also ordered the Claimant to supply him and myself with full detailed statements from day one and the DN within 3 weeks. That was 4 weeks ago and I haven't received anything.... Any thoughts?
