  1. That was the bit I was unclear about but Barclays wrote in no uncertain terms that it would not be recorded as Cash advance. Not sure if different banks/finance companies treat them differently.
  2. Just a quick update. The money transfer was with Barclays. Got them to confirm in writing it wont be reported as a cash advance, it just gets reported as promotional balance apparently. Thanks for your advice. There was a small fee but I did all the right calculations and was worth doing and importantly I'm confident I can pay it off before the high rate kicks in
  3. Fair enough. I get your point and I guess it would be a true record. I've never carried out a money transfer as they call it, or cash advance for that matter. I just thought I'd check in case cash advances was simply a term used for withdrawing cash from an ATM. My experience when calling banks about anything to do with credit reference agencies in the past hasn't gone well. Thanks to both for replying.
  4. Hi all, Hoping someone can answer this for me as I can't seem to find an answer on google, or here. Recently got a credit card who have written to me with a "money transfer" offer. In other words I can transfer money to my bank account to pay off my overdraft. It's 0% for a few months and I am confident of paying it off within the interest free period. My question is will the credit card company report this as a cash advance to the credit agencies as it's going to a bank account? Best wishes, DCATarget
  5. Thanks so much for this. I had no idea this would be a possibility.
  6. Really glad I posted question now. Thanks for the advice, appreciate it Do you think this possibility exists after a bank sell on a debt to a DCA too?
  7. Hi all, Just a quick question about banks right to "set off". If a debt is statute barred are they still able to do this? I'm guessing not but was hoping one of you lovely people will reassure me. Thanks.
  8. I'm a manager within the company I work for and holidays do accrue during the notice period where I work. Not sure if that's a standard thing or not but I would have thought so as you are working, notice period or not. Hope this helps.
  9. Thanks again to each and every one of you. I've called the court this morning who have confirmed that everything's in order and the case wont need to be heard. It's a big weight off my mind I want to send some money to your site but cant find a link anywhere. Can someone please point me in the right direction? *It's ok found it* Thanks.
  10. LATEST NEWS! Received a letter today from Arrow Global who have advised me they are discontinuing case and they've filed a notice of discontinuance at the County Court. I'll check with the court in the morning to make absolutely sure but it looks kosher. Obviously great news for me. Once again I'd like to say a big thank you for all of you who have helped me on this forum. Getting paid in a couple of weeks and I will be making a substantial donation to the site - couldn't have got to this point without it.
  11. Thank you so much for your help and calming nature Words can't describe how much I appreciate the time you and others here give to help people such as me.
  12. Lesson learned! I should have read the letter properly - I thought you just took what you needed on the day. The documents I'd like to submit would be the letter from a previous DCA saying they couldn't provide copy of agreeement, effectively putting account in dispute. I also forwarded this to AG. Recent letter from Natwest saying they couldn't find an account (as part of SAR) Copies of my letters sent asking AG for agreement etc under CPR. Suppose that's it. If it's allowed that I submit them would I just send them with covering letter and case number? With the letter from ex DCA an
  13. Oh no!!! I've just found the notice of allocation you mentioned. The only thing I noted on that was the suitability for mediation statement. What I missed however was a paragraph which read "Each party shall deliver to every other party and to the court office copies of all documents (including any experts' report) on which he intends to rely on at the hearing no later than 14 days before the hearing" Also says a bit further down the letter that "The Court may decide not to take into account a document or video or the evidence of a witness if these directions have not been complied
  14. No, not had any letters from the court or AG since before mediation. When would this normally be asked for mate? Court date is 19th Feb. Just done a little research on what a court bundle is and note that it's the claimants responsibility to sort this out. Should I chase this or just ensure I have copies of my relevant documents? Gulp....another thing I'm learning fast (with you guys help of course).
