  1. Hello everyone, I received a court claim dated 04 August 2016 for the sum of £1994.53. It is a claim put in by Restons on behalf of Cabot. Details of debt Original creditor: Sainsburys Type of dent : credit card Account opened: 7 July 2003 Terminated: 22 April 2009 Date of assignment: 27 November 2012 Last payment: 23 November 2011 Restons sent me a letter dated 15 July 2016 advising till 29 July to respond or they'll request CCJ. Sadly by the time I had access to the letter at my address that deadline had passed. I started getting calls from Cabot at all times of the day since last year but I didn't know who they were so I didn't respond. I do not recollect getting the notice of assignment from them. I am so terrified, what do I need to do now? Do I send a cca request to Cabot, I have seen the template on here. What are my deadline dates for responding to the claim court? Having a CCJ in place could harm my employment. Thank you. Please note I have read other threads, but not seen any that directly applies to my situation.

  3. Hi I had a current account with Lloyds, opened 2002. I stopped servicing this account in 2015, with an overdraft of £1,900. The account was assigned to Cabot 9 months ago. When I was notified of this assignment I wrote to Cabot to verify that they had the rights of the account and were in a position to request payment. I requested from Cabot copies of the original agreement I would have signed when it was set up, the terms and conditions, a full statement of the account, the notice of assignment and the default notice. After a long wait they have written back stating: "we contacted Lloyds for further information. Unfortunately, they have been unable to provide a copy of the agreement as when your account was opened, they were not obligated to retain this information" they include a few statements from 2014 to present there was no default notice they included a copy of the assignment notice Without the original agreement and terms how am I able to proceed , I would like to determine the charges applied etc and understand the terms Can I request the statements from day one of the account, or should I SAR Lloyds? I don't recall receiving a default notice, so I would like to see a copy of this too. What is the best form of reply here? Cabot end their letter: "I believe the evidence provided verifies the outstanding balance. " does it? Thanks

  5. Hi, I have been receiving letters from Cabot regarding an old Mint credit card debt which I defaulted on in 2010, I made payments on this to Oct 2013 through a DMP with CCCS/Stepchange but unfortunately was made redundant and was unable to continue with my DMP. I am not sure at what stage Cabot got involved but I have not had any contact with the directly, their letters have included various discount options for payment. Today I received a letter from them saying as they have been unable to contact me they are instructing ResolveCall to visit to put me back in contact with them and I am worried about this person calling. Any advice on how to proceed would be appreciated.
  6. Afternoon All, I wonder if anyone could offer any advice with my partners issues he is having. He had a credit card with Hsbc that defaulted over 6 1/2 years. He continued to make a number of payments until he got into severe financial difficulty. The default dropped off the CRA reports in February this year He was then notified in June that Hsbc had sold the debt to Cabot Cabot are demanding monies, which we don't have, saying if we do not pay then as they brought the debt they will take him to court, default him again and inform the CRA. There have been a number of people telling him different things about what to do and who/how it can be enforced, however after googling this forum seems to be the best place for common sense. He is at such a low I really need to nip this in the bud if I can. Thanks Bee
  7. Hits all, I have a CCJ issued in January last year for a Capital One Credit card via Cabot / Shoosmiths. The Balance is around £1200 and I am paying it off at £50ppm. Unfortunately I hadn't found this site back then and didn't defend it. I don't have a problem paying the £50ppm I recently found some original capital one statements, it would seem that there might be some unfair charges. If I SAR Capital One and find this to be the case can I make a claim directly to Capital One for these charges, despite the balance been sold off and CCJ'd?
  8. Hi all I have an old Halifax credit card account opened in 2001. For the last few years Cabot has been trying to collect on a balance of £2097.60. I sent a SAR to Halifax, they sent me back a mountain of paperwork from which i found that the last time I made a payment to them was in 2006. Statements continued to 2014. There was no mention in the paperwork of transferring ownership to Cabot. There was also a copy of the original CCA. For the first few years I was paying PPI and the outstanding balance is made up of a lot of fees. However it is my understanding that the account is too old to query this. I sent a CCA request to Cabot. They replied saying they couldn't find it and that collections would stop until they could produce one. They sent me an unsigned word processed doc which would have approximated the real one - is this legit? Moorcroft are now acting on cabot's behalf and threatening doorstep visits and phoning at 8am everyday. This account does not show on my credit file. Just wondering what anyone else would do in this situation - should I make a f+f offer to Cabot? Moorcroft? Any advice would be thankfully received.
  9. Hi, All the debts are credit card debts. Had an offer of 85% off a £10914 debt owned by Equi Debt but didn't have the money, think they sold the debt on to Cabot. That was 4 years ago, Can these people take me to court & get a CCJ against me? Also an offer of 25% off from Allied International

  11. Hi, Can anyone help please? To cut a long story short, I have a letter of Notice of discontinuance (N279) from back in 2015 from Restons. It states The claimant discontinues all of this claim, however over the last few weeks I have started receiving requests for payment for this alleged debt from Cabot. (I know Restons are Cabots solicitors) Do I continue to ignore these letters or send them a copy of the discontinuance and request they stop harassing me? Thanks
  12. I've just started receiving threat-o-grams from Cabot about a really old debt from my younger and more stupid days! This debt was defaulted on in the late 90's - I know as it was around the same time as I defaulted on several other debts and my flat and car were repossessed (yes I was really really stupid when I was younger) I know it's statute barred, but whats the best way to get rid of them? preferably stopping them from passing it down the food chain to another DCA too. I've tried ignoring them, but they are now trying to call me daily while I work and it's becoming annoying. TIA Mat
  13. Hello About 4 years ago I received a claim from Cabot for a debt of about £26,000 - I say about because the figure has varied in their correspondence. I made a CCA request and received no reply. A couple of years later I was contacted by Restons who threatened me with court action if I did not pay up. Restons took the case to court and I duly submitted my defence that they had not provided me with proof that I owed them any debt - nothing further was heard for about 12 months, the case having been automatically stayed. Restons then applied to have the stay lifted and applied to the court for a Pre-Judgement hearing which I attended in June of this year. At the hearing the judge ordered that: 1. Unless the Claimant do file and serve copies of the following in 28 days, i.e. by 17 July 2017, the claim be struck out: 1.1 Credit Agreement between the Defendant and Lloyds TSB. 1.2 Default notices in relation to Credit Agreement. 1.3 Deed of Assignment between Lloyds TSB and the Claimant (and any preceeding assignments). 1.4 Notice to Defendant of any assignment. 2. Costs of today and the application be borne by the Claimant in any event. 3. Within 14 days of service upon him of all the documents above, the Defendant do file an amended Defence. 4. The application for summary judgement is dismissed. 5. Permission to appeal refused. Restons have not provided me with copies of all the above documents. However, Restons have now made an application to appeal on the grounds that the judge erred. They have been given permission to appeal - the judge's order has been put on hold pending the appeal which is due to be heard this later this month. I would be extremely grateful for any help as to how to proceed. Do I need to attend the Appeal Hearing? And if so what would I need to do? It's only thanks to these forums that I have been able to defend this action so far.

  15. Hi All, Cabot Group £231.13 Default date 15.1.15 OC Fashion World I received a so called reconstituted agreement from them, along with a letter saying they now consider the agreement enforceable. It looks like something a 10 year old could knock together on Word, but I was hoping someone who knows better than me could tell me if it's enforceable. Neither the agreement or the terms & conditions are dated, if that makes a difference. They also sent a statement of charges. About £30 of that £231 are interest charges ! Should I just sit tight and wait for a claim form or is there anything else I should be doing here. I have attached the documents, Thanks in advance cabotcca.pdf cabotccatc.pdf
  16. Thankyou for the speedy reply, your advice makes sense, Can I deal with Halifax first as they increased my interest rate from 9.5% 4 years ago to (not a special deal) 29.5% 1 year ago I have been fighting them by letter/phone and not winning on the 25th January 2009 I sent a letter with the £1 postal order using the 1974 Credit Act details I have seen posted, as of todays date no reply apart from a Formal Notice stating I am in arrears. Verbally I have stated that they are in default for not sending a copy of the original agreement, do I need to put this in writing,and what will be the next step on my part............ ......thankyou
  17. Hi guys, I have received a letter from Cabot dated 3rd October 2017, telling me that I have to pay my account with them , the balance being £ 7568.15. and that I can set up a payment plan at a sum I can afford. The original lender they say was Associates Capital Corp PLC. I cannot honestly say that I know about this debt, but there again at nearly 80 years of age the memory is a bit vague these days and it might be. But apart from that there has never been any contact or letters or even payments concerning this account in the past 10 years or more. I do have two payment plans with Cabot for Barclays debt where I have been paying a minimum monthly payment for about 10 years and never missed a payment in that 10 years period, yet this new debt has never been mentioned in that time. Any advice on what to do would be welcome thanks.

Payments were being taken by direct debit, unaware payments had stopped, no notices received for lack of payment at any time What was the date of your last payment? Exact date unknown at present, sometime prior to 2010 Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management planicon? No financial problems, no need to contact creditor, no need for debt management. They stopped taking payments and did not inform us we were behind Hello I received a county court claim form in the post today from Cabot. I will fill out the details I know you need in the next post. I'm doing this for my wife, who is in bits now because of this form. I'm trying to calm her down but he is scared witless. She did take out a loan over 10 years ago with Egg, but that was sold to another company when Egg got out of the personal loan business and I think we only had one more letter from them after that. This is the only one we've received since. Bank accounts and direct debits have not changed in over 20 years and she always pays her debts on time. I don't think she has ever missed a payment for anything. I work at home and as such, very rarely ever leave the house. No-one has come knocking at the door about this - or any other - debt in the 10 years I've lived here. Can someone lease assist me, I have no idea what I'm doing and we cannot afford solicitors. Thank you in advance Ian
  19. Hi guys, i'll try and sum my issue up quickly. Sept 2007 got hp with funding corporation for a vehicle for 4 years and stopped paying after 18 ish months. Stupidly made a payment in November 2011. Defaults were served and agreement cancelled by OC in 2009 Cabot sent letters for about 12 months that I did not reply to. Mortimer clark made contact with me threatening legal action at the end of January this year. Made SAR at the beginning feb this year to funding corp - THIS WAS FULFILLED AND i RECEIVED THE SAR Made CCA request to cabot - THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN FULFILLED AND IT'S NOW MAY. NOW called today both Cabot and Mortimer Clarke. (this is the issue along with my big mouth) to tell them my new address. asked Mortimer Clarke the status of the account (it's on hold), asked them that they I expect a responce to the CCA request and let slip that I already had the original T&C's from the OC (I really did not want to say that) called back to see if they had actioned the cca request and they said It's gone through (not quite sure what that meant) If they do Correctly action the CCA request then I may have an upper hand. The OC and Lowell took me to court and the outcome was that I return the vehicle there was no judgement for money owed. I did not return the vehicle. I wonder if it can still be taken to court?
  20. Some years ago, Cabot acquired five credit card debts I had with BOS/Halifax/IF/Barclays/Lloyds. This amounted to a substantial sum and was the result of 'getting my fingers burnt' in property development. There is no entry in my Credit report for any of these amounts, or from Cabot. For the past several years I have been paying an agreed £1/month on each account to Cabot, no payments missed or late. They seem quite happy with this and don't bother me. This amounts to the princely sum of £60 / year in reduction of the substantial debt, less whatever they spend on administration/letters etc. I am almost seventy and have negotiated substantial debt write-offs with NatWest, Capital One and Tesco directly. Cabot would not write their debts off. With my sisters help I have tried to negotiate a settlement of £2000, (ok the total debt is around £40,000), but they keep saying no. I have pointed out to them that if I live to 80 they will only get £600 and to 90 they will get £1200... ..and I will have no assets to leave, but they are adament I keep paying £1/month each account. I could simply keep paying this and let it die with me, but I want a 'clean sheet'. I have requested a SAR within 40 days. 1) Assuming they respond in the timescale but do not send any signed novation agreement or original /certified copies of the original agreements bearing my signature, can they actuallly DO anything if I stop payment? 2) I am selling the modest house I have in the UK (no equity) and going to live with family in France. If I just leave the UK and don't give any French adress what would/could they do? 3) If I did either of 1 or 2 can they retrospectively place entries on my credit report? thanks
  21. I have received documentation from Mortimer Clarke solicitors on behalf or Cabot relating to an old Halifax credit card. They are giving me 14 days to contact them before threatening to take court action. Would the appropriate course of action be to send a CCA request to Cabot with a copy to Mortimer Clarke? Also, does sending a CCA to Cabot constitute a communication that would reset the statute barred date? Thanks very much.
  22. Hi, For over 10 years I am on DMP. I started with the company who was charging me a lot for just collecting my DDR and distributing them to my creditors. I have over £ 50k in debt and pay £240 pcm. As me and my husband are retired that money is very needy. I was thinking of stopping DDR and try to sort out the debt. Could anyone give me an advice where to start? If I stop DDR can the debtors put a default on my accounts? after receiving numerous phone call a day I got myself into DMP with stepchange; recently I have discovered consumer action group and I decided it is time for me to act . My plan expires in 2037 and I have already paid them more then they bough my debt for, my question is do I need to cancel direct debit first or I can send them a debt validation letter? did anyone have similar problem?
  23. Hi, Looking for some advice on the attached letter from Cabot Financial please? I have another re the Faith card but is almost identical, but can upload if needed. Their 12 days is up on 01/10/17. I took out a Faith store card (balance £414.42) in 2004 and a British Credit Trust loan (balance £2027.73) in 2004 also. Both defaulted in 2006 and I put them with Consumer credit counselling service (Now Step Change). However, I stopped paying anything to these a long time ago and I don't believe I ever agreed anything with Cabot. Cabot are not showing on my credit file, although it does show that Cabot financial have searched my details in May 2017. Is it likely I am going to need to pay these clowns? They have had Resolve Call coming to my home. I have only managed to increase my credit rating recently so that I have a credit card and don't want these causing me any further issues. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks British Credit Trust Letter.pdf
  24. Hi, I wonder if anyone can help? Today I received a letter from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors acting on behalf of Cabot Financial and tyring to get a charging order for an unpaid debt. attached to the letter is copy of the county court judgement dated 6th July 2017 and a copy of the intermin charging order dated 7th September 2017 it states I have 14 days from the date of this to send in reconsideration and unless the judgement debtor o any other person files and serves their objection to the continuation of the charge in writing, within 28 days from the date of service fo the order, the application will be considered by a district Judge no later than 26th October 2017.. Firstly, I have no clue as to what this debt is for, had no clue that it had been to court (until today). The debt is for £4,895.22. What do I do? As in how do I go about finding out what this debt is for, overturning the judgement etc? Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks Hannah
  25. Please help, I recently attend a county court for claim made against me by Mortimer/Cabot to be set aside. this is going to be a lengthy story but please bear with me . My story below; I obtained a vanquis credit credit in 2007. The limit was £1800, but I did not realise that they have increased my APR from 19.9% to 29.9% without any notification from them .i realised nearly a year they have done so and that was in 2009, I gave them a call immediately to find out why, but their response was they will investigate and get back to me but they never did. I called them on numerous occasions but I never get an answer why the APR was increased without any notification. I wrote them in 2010 after months of calling that I will stop paying them if they don't tell me why they increased my APR without any notification and that was exactly what I did. The last correspondence I had with Vanquis was in 2011. At this time the debt on my account was £1258 I moved out of that address in June 2014 to a new address. I found out in January 2016 on my credit file that the CCJ was set against in me in July 2015 for the total debt of £3909, I immediately file for a dispute and explained the reasons above and Noddle credit agency got back to me saying I should contact Cabot which I failed to do because I didn't want to have any conversation with them. I received a notice Attachment of Earnings from the county court in November 2016 which I provided and I did applied for the case to be set aside also. Judge dismissed this case and ask me to arrange a payment plan with Mortimer/Cabot. I thought the judge was very unfair, he did not listen to any of my reasons, despite that I have tenancy agreement that proof that I moved out of the old address and that I did not receive any letter prior to CCJ, he did not even look at my documents. He said I should have contacted the court in January 2016 when I found out on my credit file and that I should have contacted vanquis also of my changed address. Thank you for patience for taking your time to read this lengthy story. Please your advice on How do I moved forward from here. Thanks
