  1. Oh my goodness, just realised that the last transaction showing on that list wasn’t nearly 7 years ago but only nearly 5! But they didn’t comply with PAP by not sending the actual agreement and taking way over the 14 business days to respond, so they’re in default of CCA1974. That’s something, I guess. x
  2. Okay, so I’ll just see what happens. Huh, so they were even later in responding than I thought. Will update again when – and I’m sure i will – hear more. Thanks for all your help. Wishing you all the good things! x
  3. Hi! Thanks for replying. So, should I send them a letter saying just that? Also, the last transaction they did send supply was dated 26/04/2016 – nearly 7 years ago. And weren’t they meant to reply to the request within 28 business days – I sent the request in early November and their first reply was 21 January? Do either of these points help and should I mention them and if so, how should I put it? Thank you again!
  4. Hello again I have an update on the above at last and wondered. if you could let me know what you think? I received a letter dated 21 January from Hoist about ‘My Recent Request’ saying ‘we have not yet received a response from your original creditor’ and that they are continuing to seek an update and that action on my account has been temporarily stopped while they await a resolution. A few days later, I received another letter dated 22 January. Here are the main points: ’Further to your request for a copy statement for the above account, please find enclosed the documentation for your attention.’ Forward my affordable payment proposals. Account on hold for 14 days after which collection activity will resume. Enclosed were two pages with showing 51 rows of transactions, in 5 columns (Loaded DM/Loaded Host/Description/Amount/Balande) starting 09/08/2013 and ending 26/04/2016. There is no other information like account number etc. Shall I attach those pages? Thank you
  5. Wonderful, thanks so much! Last question (hopefully), so there is no need to send a cca to Hoist Finance at this point?
  6. Just reading through the PAP thread – it's a lot to take in all at once! Can I clarify some things? Andyorch, do you mean that I should not fill in the Reply Form at all, just attach the Statute Barred letter? Or do you mean, as I think you do, that I should fill in the form as outlined below and attach the Statute Barred letter? Sorry if this is an obvious question. And if I do fill in the Reply Form, I should use the one on your recommended PAP thread rather than the one they sent – out of curiosity, why is this? Reply Form: Just to confirm, I send this to Howard Cohen & Co Solicitors and not to Robinson Way? 1. Tick BOX D – "I dispute the debt because... it is Statute Barred and the debt purchaser has yet to provide all of the required documentation" 2. Tick BOX I – "I need more documents or information" "I have requested by way of a cca request the signed agreement from the debt purchaser" Do I send the cca request to Hoist Finance? "I also require you to supply the following A copy of the written Contract A copy of the Default Notice A copy of the Notice of Assignment A complete set of statements detailing exactly how the debt has accrued detailing: i) All Transactions ii) All Call Usage (what does this mean?) iii) Details of all contractual interest added by whom and on what date explaining how they have been calculated iv) List of ALL Payments made toward the Agreement v) Any additional charges, be them by the original creditor or the debt purchaser or any predecessor DCA" vi) Details of how much this debt is inflated by charges until end of contract after termination by the provider 3. Print name (don't sign) and date 4. Attach Statute Barred letter So, in summary: 1. Send a cca to Hoist Finance as they are the Debt Purchaser 2. Fill in (as above) the Reply Form (using the one from your PAP thread rather than the one they sent) and attach Statute Barred letter Does this all sound right? Thanks so much.
  7. Okay, thank you both very much. I'll update you on how it goes. Thanks again
  8. Thanks dx100uk, so I send that to Hoist or Robinson Way rather than in reply to the latest letter from Howard Cohen? Just want to be sure I'm doing the right thing!
  9. Thank you Andyorch, I'll take a look. dx100uk, this goes back to an Egg card I had a long time ago that was transferred to Barclaycard. I'm pretty sure I called them when they set-off the £1,433 in March 2014 but don't think I've had any dealings since. I understand that if no payments or use of the card has been registered for a period of 6 years that the debt may be too old for them to collect (?) but how do I find out the last transaction or use and who should I contact? And if I contact any of the parties, will that be some kind of admission? Thanks so much
  10. Hello A couple of days ago, I received a Letter of Claim dated 28/10/2020, from the above writing to inform me of their "... intention to issue proceedings in the County Court for the above outstanding amount that you have failed to repay" I wonder if you can help with advice on how to respond or what action I need to take. The debt is £4,619 and was from a Barclaycard originally. The remainder of this latest letter is shown at the end of this message. I know it may be unhelpful in the long run, but I've been ignoring this issue as I'm not in full time employment. I had 5 months work last year at minimum wage - it was a seasonal summer job. And this year, I have earned even less. So this is a huge worry. I received the following correspondence prior to getting this letter: 27/03/2014 Barclaycard – Letter stating that as they had been unsuccessful in contacting me about overdue payments, that they had exercised their legal right to set off part of the outstanding arrears on my Barclaycard against my Barclay's account. The set-off amount was £1,433 against the total of £5,421 14/05/2019 Barclaycard – Notice of transfer to Hoist Finance 14/05/2019 Hoist Finance – Notice of Assignment 16/05/2019 Robinson Way – Letter stating they'd been appointed as the collection agent 04/10/2019 Barclaycard – Letter offering a payment of £75 as an "Inconvenience Payment" relating to the above mentioned set-off amount in recognition that they 'may not have contacted' me before the transfer and of the "potential distress and inconvenience" I may have suffered as a result of the transfer. I did not respond. 04/11/2019 Barclaycard – Regarding the previous letter about the one-off payment of £75 25/112019 Robinson Way – Please contact us 01/02/20 Robinson Way – Pre-legal Assessment stating that the account may be transferred to Howard Cohen 27/05/20 Robinson Way – Letter offering a 40% discount 14/07/2020 Robinson Way – Letter asking me to contact them and how they could help with a payment plan 06/10/20 Robinson Way – Pre-legal Assessment stating that the account may be transferred to Howard Cohen and warning that if it goes to court the amount owing will increase So that's where I am. Thank you for taking the time to help. Sincerely caged bird The remainder of the 28/10/2020 letter is as follows: "This debt originates from a written agreement dated 30/11/07 between the original creditor detailed above and you.
