  1. I am sure I saw one on a thread earlier today, but I cant find it anywhere now. Or is it best to request the information separately. Getting shafted by MBNA at present, so want to know the best approach to fight back
  2. A work colleague has run up a 12k debt with a credit card company, he can no longer afford the minimum payments so is looking to remortgage and pay off the debt. What is the going rate percentage wise to offer in full and final settlement or too have at least the debt satisfied. I thought it was about 75%, he was hoping to have to repay less than this. Cheers in advance
  3. Barty Thank you for that I will reprint it tommorow and send. God I am getting excited again. Any other comments greatly appreciated
  4. I have been ill for several months, but I am now fit and well and ready to go. This is were I got up to: 10 Nov 06 - wrote a polite letter regarding the charges incurred that month. 25 Nov 06 - Letter received - sorry you are not happy go away ..................... End of November 06 - found this website ......................... 6 December 06 - sent the preliminary letter 19 December 06 - received the same letter as 25 November - Go Away ................... 2 Jan 07 - LBA sent - 14 days to 16 Jan 11 Jan 07 - received an offer/goodwill gesture of £750 (cred
  5. Thank you, so by paying the minimum payments that means that I will get my money back as and when settlement is agreed. Cheers
  6. I have just come of the phone to some smug employee of Capital One. He was demanding payment today, not due till Monday, but telling me that if it was not received then I would be incurring another late payment fee. I am at present involved in a claim with Lloyds TSB, I pointed out that their charges were illegal he said they were not as they reduced them last year from £20 to £12 so now they were okay and he looked forward to seeing me in court. My queries before I commence action are as follows: 1. I have 3 accounts with Capital One, do I need to do 3 seperate claims.
  7. After reading several threads over the last couple of days, I have noticed that the procedures are not been followed by the defendant (Lloyds TSB). It appears that they are not returning papers to the court on time and that they are not negotiating with people, but just before the case is due in court money appears in bank accounts. When I started my claim, before christmas, it appeared that every body was getting their claims settled by making a phone call to the solicitors, before return the AQ's to the court. Is this down to pressure of work or are they just getting more inco
  8. Can anyone confirm this, also what happens to charges incurred during the court process can these be reclaimed at any time. Cheers
  9. Cheers for that, the court route it is then. Will file my claim next week after pay day, and my next hit of charges.
  10. I rejected thier goodwill offer, but the money has still benn credited to my account. So in my letter I have accepted it as a paymeny on account. As the offer was made only a couple of days before the LBA deadline expired, as a goodwill gesture I gave them a further 7 days to settle in full. The new deadline is at the end of this week, so I am now amending my schedule to incorporate the payment received on account and also to add the additional charges incurred since I started my action. I assume you are allowed to do this. I will keep you posted of any developments
  11. Hi, I have just read through this thread, can you clear up a few things for me. I had sent the LBA and received an offer of £750 (which was oaid into my account). I rejected this and gave then another week before court action. That week rund out tommorow. I note that you also had some funds paid into your account and that you then phoned them, was this before you filed your court claim and if so have they agreed to settle in full. Or had you already filed your claim before they offered you anything. Cheers Nigel
  12. Sorry you are still unhappy, but as a goodwill gesture we will pay £750 into your account in the next few days. What is the standard response to this.
  13. Thanks for that, do I need to amend that letter as it is not an offer of settlement, but a goodwill gesture. This £750 goodwill gesture seems to be a new thing they are trying to get people to drop their cases before they really start. I have read through other threads and this £750 goodwill approach seems to be raising different responses. Cheers anyway
  14. LBA deadline is uo on Wednesday, 17 January. Recieved a letter yesterday, sorry you are still unhappy, etc. But as a goodwill gesture, as it would cost this if it goes any further they have offered me £750 (which will be in my account in the next few days). I am not happy with this and want to go to the next stage and file with moneyclaim. But do I a) reject their offer and see if they will increase it (more time wasted) b) keep the £750 and just go ahead and file my claim online, with £750 been received on account. c) reject the £750 and continue with my claim in
