  1. Oki Doki... Well here is my basic letter, which served its purpose, right or wrong i sent this to all my PPI people and they all responded to it, but using the correct addresses for each one. Also you dont have to provide actual account details if you dont know them as long as you can confirm who you are and the address you were at when you held the cards.. My letter below Steve Barclaycard Customer Relations Department PO Box 9131 51 Saffron Way Leicester LE18 9DE Dear Sir or Madam, Re: Providian Visa owned by Barclaycard Account **** **** **** 1459 I am writing in relation to the above payment protection (PPI) policy which i believe was mis-sold to me in relation to my visa card. I believe you have not treated me fairly for the following reasons; · The PPI was added without my knowledge.. · You have been punished by the Financial Services Authority for failing to treat customers fairly and I do not believe that the PPI I bought was sold in my best interest. Unless you can prove that the policy was fair and reasonable and that I was treated fairly when I was sold the insurance, I demand a full refund of all premiums, and subsequent interest on these payments, that I have paid in relation to this policy. I also expect 8% interest to be added to each payment I have made as this is the statutory amount a court would pay. I look forward to your full and prompt response to this letter. If this matter is not settled within eight weeks of this letter I shall be contacting the Financial Ombudsman to investigate my complaint. This letter is in respect of the above account that was issued by Providian Credit cards. Yours faithfully
  2. Well i believe there are templates on here, i used them when claiming bank charges back in the day.. on this occasion i wrote my own letter which clearly worked, ive even had the money and SPENT it already!. PM me your email address and i will gladly send you my letter, then you just put your own details on it.
  3. Hi Shaun The address for Providian Credit Crads (which were bought out by monument, which in turn was bought out by Barclaycard and they WILL accept full responisbility for it) is as follows Barclaycard Customer Relations Department PO Box 9131 51 Saffron Way Leicester LE18 9DE You will get a reply from Barclaybard saying that Providian did not use PPI but instead provided something called PBP (Payment Break Plan) but treated it the same way as PPI. Hope that helps Best Steve
  4. Hey mate, im in Rome till next Wed, soon as i get back i will send the address. Best regards Steve
  5. yes in deed, this is how it was worked out, premiums from sept 2003 till Jan 2006... £180.31 Value of compound interest charged at on premiums £63.58 Interest on credit balance at equiv of 8% per year calculated on monthly basis £159.35 Interest at equiv of 8% per year to closure date £0.0 (zero) Total refund £403.24p Im well happy seeing as my limit was £500 and i had used it to the limit most of the time.
  6. Well 3 weeks ago i wrote to Barclaycard after some research to discover this tangled web of who buys who and what... My old Providian Credit card that i had between 2003 and 2006 with a pathetic £500 credit limit was bought out by Monument, which in turn was bought out by Barclaycard. Well as i said 3 weeks ago i wrote to barclaycard, told them i was wanting to claim my PPI back on the providian card, within a few days i had a letter saying they were looking into it and gave me the standard we have 8 weeks etc.. Today i had a letter from Barclaycard asking me to accept in full (which i will) the lovely sum of £403.00.. wow i nearly fell over my limit was only £500 during the whole of the 3 years i had my credit card.. Thank you barclaycard, what a speedy response!!
  7. Seeing as my neighbours are elderly disabled pensioners, there not happy about paying to apply for a stay to be set aside even though their case is in my view (and others) really strong, looks like this ones going to have to be a case of sit and wait.. I am tempted to just pay for the stay to be set aside but then all post goes to them and in a sense thats betraying there wishes. I have however written back to the Yorkshire Bank to remind them they are not permitted to take there benefits as charges in accordance with the appropriate Act and Legislation, despite this im sure that Yorkshire bank are not interested in this.. Ive even been to the local branch previously witht he legislation to be told by the manager, she never heard of it before lmao (yeah ok) Ive invited Yorkshire bank to thoroughly inspect there income and as the court will see when i produce the bundle (after the test case) the bank have caused additional distress by taking there benefits, pretty obvious thats all the income they get as its clearly stated 'benefits' Anyway, thats just the update lets hope OFT beat the heck out of the banks.... On a lighter note, i have a case going through the courts myself.. Halifax Mortgages, with charges etc, had the same letter as my neighbour just worded differently to stress to me that no payments will be made until after the court case, then today a letter saying sign here and we will pay you in full and final settlement... typical halifax not knowing which hand is doing what so ive signed and in effect they have settled, just wish it was as easy for my neighbour.
  8. Taking Yorkshire Bank to court for my elderly neighbour, not a significant amount just over 400 squid. Recieved a letter today stating Sitting at Northampton County Court IT IS ORDERED THAT: 1) Following filing of a defence or holding defence the claim shall be stayed pending judgement in the Office of Fair Trading test case. 2) Liberty to apply with an explanation Note: Any Party affected by this order may under rule 3.3 (5) apply to have it set aside, varied or stayed. Such a party must apply under Rule 23.3 within 14 days of service of this order. (The order was drawn on 20 August) So Question Do i apply to set the stay aside? and carry on or as this is a direction for a named District Judge do i leave it and wait till the text case is heard?
  9. Rogerebaker.... Great report, well done.. this will bring encouragement to those who are not familiar with the court setting..
  10. MCOL issued yesterday, Notice of issue recieved in the post today...

OK Aaronsdad, might need your input now, ive recieved all the info from the Halifax re my mortgages and ploughing through slowly.. did you request all your charges back including the deeds despatch fees?
