  1. Wait until you hear back from Cabot. If they supply any paperwork, scan in, remove all your personal identifiers and upload. Stigman
  2. You need to ask for a breakdown of figures of how the Council came to their decision. Once received you can ask the Council to review, make sure you point out the errors in plain childproof English as Council workers are not employed for their intelligence! and if not ask them for a deadlock/final decision letter to take to the independent tribunal.

  3. Hi, The true experts in this field will be along as soon as they are free. As it is the Friday and leading into the weekend, responses may be slow as everyone is with families etc. The Council should have provided you with a breakdown of the financials and how they reached their decision. The letter should state that you can take it to an independent tribunal but await others who are more knowledgeable. Your UC online statement should also show how much your are paid for your Housing Benefit. I am replying because we are having the exact same issue as yourself with our local Council. Stigman
  4. I updated our details as we recently moved (May this year) with a certain price comparison website that uses a small mongoose as well as his servant and family as their advertising. I had not connected the two and have had no searches by anyone on my credit reports that I receive. Stigman
  5. To update the op and this thread. I tried to call HSBC only to be on hold for 30 minutes and then cut off Today, I went into HSBC, the letter is from HSBC, the letter is genuine and the guy even showed me a copy of the same letter addressed to me on his tablet. He was shocked that the telephone number comes up as a scam number in Google searches but I also pointed out that the number is not listed in HSBC's own phone book in their help section. He had no comment on how they found my new address, nor the reason as to why. I will now be sending HSBC a SAR request and want to know more. Stigman
  6. My letter and Cheque is attached. I have searched like Listless the addresses both on the Cheque, and the Business Centre and these comes back as correct for HSBC. Even the FCA number in the small print on page two is correct. The pages have a good quality feel to them, not something you would expect from a scam. Just so weird that the telephone number that they ask you to call is not only on spam lists but also not showing on HSBC's own Phonebook list in their help section. I will be phoning HSBC tomorrow and asking them directly. Stigman HSBC Cheques CAG.pdf
  7. Just to update this thread for the op. I have received the same letter with a cheque for £25, the letter had my correct A/C Numbers on as well. The letter is vague as all it states is that they have reviewed their collections and recoveries departments and that it did not meet the standard that they expect. The letter does not say what had gone wrong or where, what standards had failed and I will now be following up on this. This stems from our Accounts from 2008 btw and we continuously thought with HSBC before it got to the collections stage so they have now opened up more questions that I want answers to. HSBC found my new address, I did not give HSBC my latest address as I had postal redirection and the Accounts have been statute barred for nearly 6 years now. Stigman
  8. I thought that there was a statutory 14 calendar day limit to be informed by post? Stigman
  9. Does the information that Cabot have supplied match with your own Bank Statements & Records? Stigman
  10. Although Henriksen have a Scarborough address they share the same offices in Leeds as LCS. Henriksen or HCollect are the same Company and tried to collect a Statute Barred debt from me late last year but a quick Statute Barred letter sent them closing the account and returning to their clients. Henriksen are collecting a lot of work at the moment from JC International who have purchased a lot of old Talk Talk debts. Do you have or know of any Statute Barred debt that has been sold to JC International? Stigman
  11. Hi, It means that Cabot have purchased the Account from Halifax, Halifax is correctly showing zero balance. Cabot is correctly showing the amount and the same date as the original Halifax account of January 2014. As you have CCA'd Cabot, this means it is either a Credit Card or Loan, have you reclaimed all charges and checked for PPI as the deadline is coming close so you have to act fast. SAR to the original creditor (Halifax), SAR template in the Library section. You should have been made aware by letter that Cabot had purchased the debt from Halifax. Since your last contact with Cabot, have you moved addresses, if so update Cabot so this stops any backdoor CCJ's. No CCA, No pay, When did you take the original debt out as a 2014 date Cabot can reconstitute an agreement. Take Care Stigman
  12. Lowell's are very litigious at present so your chance of a claim form coming through the post in the future will be on the higher end of the scale. However, as DX as already posted the final figure is made up of early termination charges and other charges along the way. These can be used as part of your defence as well as Vodafone's payment history if a claim form ever comes through your letterbox. You need to get a Subject Access Request to Vodafone straight away, the link for the SAR is here... https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?387306-Full-Subject-Access-Request-under-the-new-GDPR-2018-regime(1-Viewing)-nbsp A SAR is free now under the GDPR so send via recorded delivery so you know when the 30 day clock starts ticking.

  13. If the bailiff is refusing to take the car it means it is not a lot of value and therefore the bailiff is hoping it is more of an inconvenience to you so he will get his payment and move on as otherwise he would be exerting maximum pressure for your son to pay or a low loader will be round and your sons car would be gone and stored and unless payment received it would be auctioned. You need proof of this latest ticket that the bailiff is talking about, did your son have a ticket which he forgot to pay? Stigman
  14. Hi, Others will be along to advise but do not remove the clamp yourself as it will be classed as Criminal Damage and if you dispose of the clamp it will also be theft. Have you got a purchase receipt? How did the bailiff find the vehicle at the new address? Was this through an ANPR hit where they drive around streets looking for vehicles in their database? As long as you can show that your son used his own funds to purchase the vehicle (bank withdrawal/debit card receipt if garage etc.) as mainly the log book shows the keeper not the owner so you need to establish proof of ownership. Stigman
  15. Contact HMRC directly and set up a repayment plan. Ignore Rossendales. Pointless asking them, they will only say no so they can take your payments and obtain their hefty percentage fee. Stigman
