  6. I have decided i will write to them and say that based on the fact that they did not deal with request back in 2006, they are to blame for it now being over the 6 year limit. I have decided to ask for 24% interest (which still goves me some room for negotiating). If they dont this time then i will take it to court. I will keep you all updated and ofcourse i will be back for advice and moral support!
  7. ims21 - even 24.9% sounds good. Just wondering why 24.9%?
  8. Citizen - that was very quick reply, much appreciated. i have been up most of the night reading the forum! I am afraid the recent capital one cases do not really fill me up with confidence. I want to strike the right balance and get as much as i can. I would rather get something than nothing. I am on maternity leave at present and if i can get a successful outcome that would be great. One thing that has come out of all this mess/debt is that i no longer have any credit cards or even an overdraft! I have already completed the spreadsheet. Just wondering what my best course of action would be.
  9. In the past i have received a lot of help and guidance from this forum, unfortunately as you can see i am back for more! Back in 2006 i wrote to both capital one (charges relating to feb 2002 to march 2006) and citi financial (may 2003 to sept 2005) for refund of charges. Unfortunately both fobbed me off with standard letters saying that the fees charges were in line with other banks. I then requested copy statements from both companies and sent relevant fees. I mistakenly then believed that with the outcome of the high court test case i could no longer pursue them for the refund of charges. I now realise that credit card charges can still be pursued. My question is where does this leave me. When i initially contacted them i was within the 6 year period. But now with all the time that has elapsed my charges fall over the 6 year period bar 2 charges. Having read people’s experience of capital one specially those over the 6 year period, i feel i may have the same fate and not have any charges refunded. I just wondered what people would do in my situation. Would you just write without mentioning that you had contacted them back in 2006 and hope for the best that they don’t query the over 6 year limit. Or would i be more successful saying that when i contacted them initially that i had been within the 6 year limit and now that i have realised the test case was for bank charges and not credit card that they should refund the charges. I would be very greatful for any feedback. P.S. the charges and interest are as follows: capital one: £808 charges + £5300 in interest calculated at 29% citifinancial: 700 charges + 4k interest calculated at 29% I guess the other thing also to consider is would i be more successful asking for 8% instead of 29%.
  10. Quick update - I am in shock. I came from work today to find the cheque for costs awarded had arrived. I really thought i would have to fight them and thought i wouldn't see the cheque any time soon.
  11. I am so glad i have paid them off last year. I made it a priority as i did not want that guy turning up again, he was a nasty piece of work. I did ask for a discount, i just got some charges taken off.
  12. I have just today received the letter from court confirming the set aside and also the cost that was awarded to me. I would be greaful if someone could tell me when Lowell have to pay me the costs by. Is it from the date the hearing took place or when notification received from court? Thanks!
  13. I forgot something very important......... T H A N K Y O U!!!!!!!! for all those who gave advice and supported me, i couldn't have done it with the help from you guys and the site.
  14. LOL.......... glad that's over! Was in the court room less than 5 minutes. Fantiastic judge. Judge asked if other side were hear i said i didn't think so as i had already asked the clerk and he had told me they had not come. Judge proceeded to summarise quickly what i had written for reason for set aside (statute barred, charges and no response from CCA request). I reiterated to date i still have not heard from hampton regarding cca and unable to make contact with named person on the demand. The judge said he will set aside and that if they want to pursue then they will have to come through the county court route (didn't quiet understand what he meant by that last bit but didn't care as i got what i had wanted a set aside!). I had not submitted my cost for set aside (even though i did call the court the day before and the person informed that i should bring that up with the judge). I asked the judge if i could possibly submit my cost for litigant in person now. The judge looked at it said i was entitled to it and that it was very reasonable and that he would award me the cost! I pointed out that i had to take a day off work and that i was initially going to add that in too but would be happy to accept 19 hours @ £9.25 for research and preparing for the hearing. I have to say that the judge was absolutely lovely and put me at ease. I knew that i had some good reasons but still couldn't help feeling nervous as i have read many thread here whereby people have had judge who didn't really understand and hence did not get the judgement they hoped for. Being awarded the cost was a bonus too! When i came back from court there was a surprise waiting for me. 2 letters from yours truly. 1) smallest of the 3 debt (less than £100) - a print out of some transaction from 2006 in one page the other two page made no sense it was to do with interest rate. they said they were still waiting for the credit agreement and would forward that to me when they had it. 2) 2nd biggest debt which had all the charges. they sent a photocopy of the signature bit and print out of an agreement. There was no info on the 3rd debt (statute barred).
  15. My court date is almost here. Still no correspondence from lowell/hampton.
