  1. My MP has written to Norman Lamb, Minister for Consumer Affairs, about the S75 loophole and the way the judge interpreted the law. He has raised this with the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), who are monitoring the court rulings and Financial Ombudsman judgements on the Advent case, so if you have had a court result or FOS ruling (in favour or not) he suggests people contact the OFT with the details. The Minister has said in his reply to my MP that his department is currently looking at the Consumer Credit Act (including S75) and intend to make a detailed review of this, in hand with the OF
  2. You'd have thought, wouldn't you. They don't take time and effort into account though - just cold money issues - full explanation of why only £232 is on my website if anyone wants to read it.
  3. I received £232 back from the nearly £5,000 plus costs (court fees basically and loss of earnings to attend court) - you can't claim compensation in Small Claims.
  4. Thanks Caro - had forgotten all about Moneybox, though I used to listen to it regularly. Have contacted them. The AGM would be a good idea, but a lot of people may not be able to get to London for it. I think a small group did protest at the one last year with banners. Someone on the FB group suggested contacting Price Waterhouse Cooper, Barclays external auditor they have to account to. I'll try that too.
  5. I've now written to the Mirror, Mail, Sun, Guardian and Observer. Plus contacted the 'One Show' (follow up on our feature last year), Watchdog (again), OFT and Panorama. Can I urge everyone to do the same if you haven't already. TOGETHER WE HAVE MORE POWER, A LOUDER VOICE, TO GET ATTENTION. It's clear Barclays have no shame and will not budge so we need to put pressure on via the media. I've posted my open letter to the press on my site.... http://adventstudents.webs.com/index.htm
  6. Yes, good luck 10pack. It will be interesting to see how Hogan Lovells representative, Duffy, deals with a group action advised by a solicitor. Sounds like your case is pretty solid as in they should never have given you a loan in the first place.
  7. Hi Lankus I'm sorry to hear you lost - at least in Small Claims you should get your costs back from Barclays. You gave it a shot and it's not easy as a layman to stand up in court and represent yourself, so don't beat yourself up. I also thought afterwards of the things I could have said but Duffy was cunning and steered the judge round, trying to bamboozle. Nasty piece of work with no shame or conscience. Let's hope they'll get theirs one day!! I'm waiting to hear from the Chairman of Barclays office now - if they still don't offer a reasonable amount of money back to me willingly
  8. I have since phoned around a dozen local solicitors to see if any will take it on as a no win no fee - no joy. All say much the same, that for a small claim it wouldn't be cost effective for me (if I lose I could end up paying £thousands in BPF's costs!) and as a judge has already made a ruling to overturn that is not easy. Bloody idiot judge! Maybe if I'd not mentioned the CIW online for £232 he would have awarded me more money!! Duffy, Barclays Hogan Lovells barrister, must be wringing his hands with glee that he managed to swing that one- bastard!!! My last chance is appealing dir
  9. My ruling at Bristol Court proves - BARCLAYS PARTNER FINANCE HAVE NO RIGHT TO ENFORCE COMPUTEACH. WHAT THEY HAVE DONE MAY BE LEGAL BUT IT IS MORALLY AND ETHICALLY WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!! I'm in the process of writing to the Board of Shareholders at Barclays, OFT, MP and of course all major press, BBC Watchdog and the One Show (who supported us in the past). Suggest all of you get your heads over the parapet now and charge, do the same! Together we have a BIG voice. Don't whine, DO!!! Barclays, like all banks, do not like BAD PUBLICITY IT HITS 'EM WHERE IT HURTS - THEIR POCKET- s
  10. I don't think they do for small claims, Keith. That was all I got, the short letter posted on my website, which is a shame.
  11. I may put one up on my website once I've had a reply from the court about the amount, depending on what they come back with.
  12. I agree, Kraken, but I'm at a loss of who to complain to in honesty (I thought directly to Barclays Board)? Can you suggest any authority please?
  13. Thanks Bluedo for your kind words. Yes, I'm disgusted at the underhand tactics used by the Hogan Lovells lawyer. I won, yet financially I'm the loser! I am challenging the amount awarded as I can ask for that to be reviewed within 14 days.
