  1. Well thats the first bit of (unexpected) good news I've had in a while! Thank you everyone for your help, a donation to the site will be incoming next pay day
  2. So I've just gone into the claim online to start filing a defence, and this is in the Claim History box Your acknowledgment of service was submitted on 08/06/2022 at 20:42:23 Your acknowledgment of service was received on 09/06/2022 at 08:06:30 Notification that the claim against you was discontinued was received on 20/06/2022 at 19:06:20 I've had nothing via post or email to say they've dropped it. Is it really that easy?
  3. The cpr 31 request has been sent, so waiting on anything to come back from that now. Do I go ahead and file a defence yet or leave it until nearer the deadline?
  4. Question about the CPR31.14 request form. There is no solicitor mentioned anywhere on the claim, so do I just send it to the claimant? Also there are no documents mentioned in the particulars of claim, what should I be asking for, just the original agreement? THanks again in advance
  5. So am I right in thinking the court can't add any more costs on, £470 is the most I could be liable for, and if they did find against me and I paid the £470 within one month the ccj would be erased?
  6. Thank you for your help, I'll get onto that this evening. One quick question before I do, what would be the likely worst case scenario financially if I defended it and lost?
  7. Which Court have you received the claim from ? MCOL Northampton Name of the Claimant ? Consumer refund serice Date of issue – 1/6/22 Particulars of Claim What is the claim for – 1. The claimants claim is for unpaid fees which have arisen for services supplied by the claimant to the defendant at the defendants request over a claim with Black Horse finance. 2. The defendant entered into a contract on 28/3/2019 to identify the mis-sale of ppi with the lender 3. The contract with the claimant requires that the defendant settles invoices within 14 days of the receipt of compensation 4. The claimant recovered total compensation over the aforementioned case paid directly to the defendant in the sum of £1654 5. Despite numerous attempts to secure settlement of the outstanding invoice no payment has been forthcoming AND as such the claimant claims the total sum of £397 plus interest under section 69 of the county courts act 1984 at a rate of 8% per year from 4/9/22 to 31/5/22 on £397 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment t a daily rate of £0.09 What is the total value of the claim? £470 Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) ? No, I have received a couple of begging style letters from them, but nothing very official, and certainly not sent recorded delivery Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?

  8. Hello, looking for some advice regarding fighting a court claim please. A few years ago I made a ppi claim using this company, this was before I learned how easy it was to do it yourself. Long and short of it is they took so long I wrote to them and told them not to bother as it was taking so long, and I started a claim myself, which was successful. I have now received court papers from consumer refund service saying I owe them their cut of the claim. Unfortunately I don't have proof of the letter I wrote them cancelling the original claim as it was on an older pc which died. Is it worth me trying to defend this or am I likely to end up with even more costs? THe amout they are claiming is £400 plus court costs Thanks in advance.
  9. Wouldl like some advice please regarding a small debt to HMRC. I ceased self employment over 3 years ago. When I let HMRC know I was going back to paye they wrote to me telling me that any underpaid tax would be reclaimed from my tax code. As far as I can remember my account was all square anyway (I'm trying to find my old log in details to go back through it). However a couple of days ago I received a letter out of the blue from a debt collector called LCS claiming I owe £133 and how would I like to pay? No dates, or any other info from when this debt occured. Should I write back to them and tel them where to go, as as far as I'm concerned I don't owe HMRC a penny. Thanks in advance.
  10. Interesting text from CRS today 'Lending Stream have authorised us to offer you a substantial discount on the balance owed to them' Hmm. Does that suggest CRS haven't actually bought the debt and LS are starting to struggle financially or is it just a carrot to try and get me talking to them?
  11. Hello again. I've had a few emails from CRS asking for payment etc, but nothing actually threatening as yet. I received this today from Lending Stream. They have conveniently ignored the multiple times I tried to contact them in between, and the online self service thing is an out and out lie, there has never been an arrangement in place as they just kept ignoring my requests. Should I go back to them now or just sit tight and wait for the Ombudsman? Thanks again First of all, please accept our sincere apology for the delayed response, since the mass lockdown in March following the spread of Covid-19, we continued to maintain contact with our customers through our Live Chat service and by email. However, this has caused unprecedented volume of emails to work through, so we understand your frustration at the delay. You have two outstanding loans with us ***** which commenced on 10th January 2020 and loan **** which commenced on 1st February 2020. You contacted us on 26th March 2020 initially to let us know that you were laid off from work and unable to afford the repayments, however we can see that we had redirected you to online self service for you to set up suitable payment arrangement according to your needs. Further, we can also that you had set up a part arrangement on the loans **** & **** on 17th April 2020. On 22nd April 2020 we also shared a personalised link in our email to you if you wanted to make any changes to the existing arrangement. From your previous correspondence, you told us that you will be able to make smaller repayments and would contact us in June regarding payment plan as you will be back to work, however we did not hear from you thereafter seeking assistance in relation to the above. As we did not receive any payments towards the above loans, a Notice of Default (NOD) was issued on 4th July 2020 and Notice of Termination (NOT) was issued on 23rd July 2020. Further, the above loans were passed to Credit Resource Solutions (CRS) on 1st August 2020. In reference to concern regarding interest freeze or removal, we would like to reiterate that interest is charged according to the loan agreement and the same was informed to you at the time of borrowing the loan. We also find it worth mentioning that by signing the Credit Agreement, you confirmed that you are able to afford the loan repayments. So, we regret to inform you that we would not be able to freeze or remove the interest due to system restrictions, until a full arrangement is set on the account. Any full arrangement you set up with Lending Stream needs to be completed within 2 years. Again considering your current circumstances we don't think this will be a good option for you, so we suggest you to either work with CRS, who can help you set up arrangement according to your needs or you can even seek free external debt advise. If you think your condition is prolonged then you can get enrolled with Debt Management Company to help you with your repayments. If you have any questions regarding your outstanding loan you can also refer to your lending stream online account section. If you have any additional information that would be helpful in investigating this complaint, please send that to us. Otherwise, please consider this as our final response on the matter. You have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, free of charge – but you must do so within six months of the date of this email. If you do not refer your complaint in time, the Ombudsman will not have our permission to consider your complaint and so will be able to do so in very limited circumstances. For example, if the Ombudsman believes that the delay was as a result of exceptional circumstances. For further information, please visit http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk If you need to contact us, the best way is by using our live chat option or replying to this email directly. You can also send us a message from our ‘contact us’ page in our website. We hope this is helpful and thank you for bearing with us. Regards, Lending Stream Complaints Team
