  3. Yes I have acknowledged the debt in the past 6 years but I don't think an outstanding tax liability is allowed to be SB – it’s always live I thought? However it will be interesting to find out how tenacious the new HMRC outsourcing DCA’S are – how far will they push people? It’s obviously big business for them right now but I’m hoping to tire them down with a drip feed or similar before they get bored or I lock them out of a CC summons – which is mentioned above as this costs them money and is often counterproductive for bullying DCA’s.
  4. Thanks Tony Appreciate your response - I'll string them out and wear them down in that case I'm luckily an hour ahead in France for their early morning wake up calls to hurt All best Ben
  5. Fairfax phoned me early today (as I have a 7 year old HMRC tax debt £10k which I've stupidly ignored by moving to France). But as they had an old address on file we could not pass data protection and I gave them a safe holding address where I can collect post but am not easily traceable. I cannot afford to pay 10k upfront - anyone had dealings with them - is it possible to drip feed the debt back over a few years? What powers do they have acting for the HMRC if any and what’s the worst they can do? Thanks
  6. Thanks Hedgey, Success, I sent A&L a statutory demand for £1k damages, the contested debit (£511) and an order to strike the default and they sent a cheque for £1511 and disappeared the default a week later. Just in time too as the default was holding up a mortgage application and the offer was released shortly after my credit score increased. I also sent a court summons at the same time and hassled them every other day for a month. It was the statuary demand that worked but it's an end to a worrying few weeks as my credit was drying up. Thanks for asking - I've been
  7. Alliance & Leicester default Removal Successfully had a default removed, £1000 compensation and the disputed balance refunded after I sent them a statuary demand. It took a month to get it sorted after it showed up on a mortgage application. Mostly due to the knowledge gained from this website, thanks all.
  8. Ok, off to work in amazement it'll keep this brief. After recent posts on sending defaults to banks, I sent the Alliance Leicester a statuary demand and and a threat to issue winding up proceedings for £1511.38. £1000 for default damages and £511.38 (amount I was defaulted for which has been repaid.) A few days later I followed this up with a court summons borrowing Car's argument V Barclay's. (No CCA1974 cover, data protection etc). Today I receive a cheque for £1,511.38 and an offer to discharge the demand without liability. Hopefully that mean lift the default. In
  9. Due you think it's a bluff? Looking forward to their defence. Thanks for all your hard work on default removal. Have just used your Barclays argument against A and L. They even wrote telling me my £1000 overdraft offer wasn't a credit agreement. They'll be telling me they're not a bank next. No lending going on here. The court was helpful too.
  10. What a great idea, I got a letter from my bank saying no credit agreement was entered into yet they chased me for £500 overdraft and defaulted me.You could do it for fun. Noticed in other threads: defaukpohraror v woolwich building society [1996] C.L.C. 510 a default compensation was set by the judge at £1000
  11. Trying to get a default moved from an account closed after reclaiming bank charges. I disputed a cheque being honoured by A and L 6 weeks after they closed my account. Debt now paid in full. Financial Ombudsman have just asked bank to reply to complaint. OFT acknowledged complaint. Had a great letter from bank saying "no credit agreement has been entered into" after CCA agreement and default letter request, (will try to figure how to post it up) so will follow this up with a court summons. Using same argument as other great threads here - bank account and overdraft is a credit agr
  12. Thanks, thanks, yes I have a fantastic letter from the A and L saying they issued the default also saying the account was not covered by the CCA and no credit agreement was entered into and that there was no requirement to issue a default notice as there was no authorised overdraft facility in place. They just sent me back my t and c's. You couldn't make it up. They defaulted me on an authorised overdraft after closing my account. How can I possibly have owed them money and default if there was no credit? Trading standards and Financial ombudsman have acknowledged my complaint. I'd
  13. Forgot to mention I've paid this debt in full. Robinson Way were calling me twice a day in France and it got too much. Should have read the forums before I did though.
  14. Hello, haven't been here for a while as I've been working away in France. I've come back to re mortgage and had a nasty shock. My account was closed in June 06 after I reclaimed charges. Six weeks after the account was closed a cheque was unexpectedly honoured and I contested this payment as I was unable to reclaim it from the payee for quite a while. I couldn't sort this with A and L, it was passed to a DCA and a default was issued on my account. I've just found this out in the mortgage application. I've written to the FOA - awaiting response. A and L have said no defaul
  15. Work is taking me away so I can't do much but the Daily Mail came round this morning to do a feature on Alliance and Leicester sacking charge claimants - so that might do more for the cause than litigation at this stage – I had to look forlorn and indignant with a fist full of statements, so see what happens.
