  1. Apart from the initial call I never heard another word from them, didn't have any details, wouldn't have known where to send anything. The least persistent parasites I've ever encountered.
  2. I think what people are saying is that if you did default then it is all but impossible to get them removed before the 6 years are up. Having said that if the dates have been entered unduly late then they should be willing to correct them - the ICO Principles for the Reporting of Arrears, Arrangements and Defaults at Credit Reference Agencies say 6 months worth of missed payments - or at least they did last time I checked.
  3. We've gone over this previously DX - I didn't defend at the time and once in place it becomes a moot point whether the debt was valid. It was a bank overdraft. Of course I should have defended, I was mentally weak at the time. Many people aren't in the best place when they find a site like this and need help - I've got that help since and in many cases have been able to get back charges, interest and compensation on other accounts.
  4. I'm just updating my old threads - they backed down over this and cancelled the cancellation charge after we sent them a letter outlining our position.
  5. 4 years on and not a lousy letter or a call - I might rip all their pictures off the wall!
  6. Bryan Carters accounts were taken back in house by Lowell - I was paying a CCJ for years and got paperwork a while back about the change.
  7. If you have a similar case you might want to start a thread bitemarx
  8. Quick (non) update. Not a single communication from Link since the initial one and Moorcroft have stopped writing too.
  9. Surely even if they did go to court AND were then successful (which from the limited information here seems less than certain) the court order would be for a minimal payment, they can't go for assets he doesn't own and a poor credit score probably isn't high on his list of things to worry about? In fact for his peace of mind it being dealt with by the courts may well be the best option - otherwise they will undoubtedly carry on harassing him. Also just on the point about informing them they were fraudulent applications - it would have been their problem to go to the police and not your fathers - though I imagine perhaps your father wasn't keen on dropping his son in it at the time so maybe didn't push things.
  10. The log book loan companies so far don't seem to attract the same bile as payday lenders did - yet using such archaic laws in the way they are is equally as reprehensible as the payday lenders. Anyway that's a discussion for a different day - I wonder what other low actions these people may consider against CAG and others who dare to stand up to them? Without CAG I'd still be cowering from avalanches of threatograms, paying money in many cases I didn't owe at all, in some cases mainly charges and interest etc. I now have only 2 old debts that are subject to CCJ's. No wonder these spiv's fear this site, if it can help me fight them effectively it can help anyone.
  11. Is that statement accurate? According to citizens advice a court cannot be asked to enforce a debt that is statute barred and you cannot issue proceedings: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/help-with-debt/how-to-dispute-a-credit-debt/time-limits-for-recovering-debt-in-court/

    I shall await my version of the same letter Dora with baited breath
  13. I'd definitely complain - and when you do so make sure you mention how much distress, suffering and indeed hardship this is causing to maximise the compensation you get. https://www.handbook.fca.org.uk/handbook/CONC/7/13.html
  14. The ICO guidance is contained here: http://www.scoronline.co.uk/sites/default/files/high_level_prinicples_document_final.pdf and some general reading here: https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/credit/ My point to Lowells was: I had to persist but did in the end get Lowells to concede the point and correct the error.
  15. Just for information I had a default that I queried with Lowell as it was added years after the ICO guidance on when a default should be added. I complained to Lowell who initially claimed it was nothing to do with them but the OC - when I pointed out that the default was added 7 months after they told me they bought the debt they basically realised what they'd done. I had pointed out the ICO guidelines and that I would take action and the result was lowells accepted the default should have been years earlier, corrected it (which meant it disappeared) and paid me over £650 in compo for the privilege. So I guess I'm saying DCA's do add defaults but they should makes sure they do so in accordance with the guidance.
