About Me


  1. Hi, so I really don't know what my options are (if any) In 2014, when I was 18 my mum asked if she could open a catalogue in my name... I agreed as she told me it would help build up my credit rating. I specifically told her not to get in debt with it.... I had thought she'd stopped using it after that year. Background: My mother has C-PTSD and due to this is absolutely appalling at handling money- sadly for me I've only just realised how big an issue it is as she always seemed like she was dealing with any debts she has. She is not receiving any help with this at all as any health

  3.

  4. Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help me with a small problem I have a littlewoods catalogue that i have had for a few years, Me and my wife only use it when they have a sale on or send us discount vouchers, We usually pay it off fully before the payment date The latest balance was £25 and i meant to pay it in time but forgot I suddenly remembered it today and logged in to find it should have been paid Friday, I have cleared it today with a card payment online and now it shows 0 balance Though it is the 13th today it actually shows payment made on the 12th which will be 1
  5. Hi I have received a county court claim form from Lowells for an old catalogue debt of £186 and I dont know the first thing to do , can anyone help me please? I cant even remember having the catalogue they say its from December 2011
  6. I need help/assistance regarding a Simple Procedure claim that was posted through my door on Thursday 5th October by Sheriff Officers. The claim by Capquest/Shoosmith is regarding a catalogue debt which I believe should be statute barred as the date that a default was issued was 10/07/2012. I suffer from a long term illness and also depression and around that time was in and out of hospital frequently and for one reason or another, ignored the debt! Capquest/Shoosmith are now pushing to recover the debt which was initially owed to shop direct for the sum of £449.37. As I rely
  7. I am helping a relative with a claim that has come through MCOL. After requesting documents, we have finally been sent the Claimant's Witness Statement which includes a schedule with some further information. I want to get a supplementary witness statement prepared plus a skeleton argument. I saw one thread that seems to cover the situation http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?443519-Lowell-claim-form-old-shop-direct-CAT-debt-***Claim-Dismissed*** However the links to the relevant documents are not working and I have seen some mention of the do
  8. Hi My husband has had an account with JD Williams for the past 6 years, 4 years ago we experienced difficulties and they accepted interest free payments of £20 per month which we have paid religiously ever since. Last week he received a letter saying the account had been sold to Lowell and that all payments should now be made to them. I have no issue doing that but they have now started calling our landline (my hubby works nights so we could do without that really!) and we don't want to start being harassed when everything's been fine for 4 years. Is there anyt
  9. Hello for the first time ever i recently checked my credit file. All seems pretty good except that four 1/2 years ago someone obtained a CCJ for a catalogue debt (that is not in my name) at the address i lived six years ago I was not living at the address at the time so was unable to submit a defence. They would not have had a signed credit agreement I am concerned as recently i have received phone calls from Capquest asking me to contact them urgently. if their inquiry is in relation to the above how should i proceed? Thank you.

  11. Hi guys I have an old Kays catalogue 2010 that is on my credit report and has had a CCJ applied 2014. I took the catalogue on from my mum originally but never signed an agreement. I then ended up moving house twice and knew nothing about the CCJ until now. What do i do? I could either get the ccj put aside which i think i have to do a n224 form for and comes with a fee. Question will i have to go to court to set it aside as im a nervous wreck. My other option would be to challenge the debt because its not signed. I dont have a credit
  12. Please can you help me? My sister bought my son a Play Station 4 (PS4) games console complete with 2 games from Very Catalogue of which she is a customer. She bought the PS4 April 24th 2015 to give to him on his birthday June 9th 2015.She kept the present unopened at her home and gave it to my son on his birthday. Unfortunately on opening the PS4 and setting it up, the PS4 is faulty and does not work so we would like to return it.

  13. Hello I have a very account, due to financial difficulties I fall behind on the payments and then stopped making payments ( I know, not smart) I have decided that its time to face my debt and I can see the debt on my credit report as "default". I don't want this effecting my credit rating I want to pay the debt of £382 (with a reasonable price plan £10.00 per month). I recently received a call from First Credit Ltd, I told them that I won't speak to them via phone only via written correspondence. I believe I will start receiving their letters very soon. I have logged on
  14. I have been having problems paying a mail order catalogue for a few months now, due to being diagnosed with a incurable lifelong illness and being on steroid medication etc haven't been working as much as I would like, hoping to be in remission one day! I contacted littlewoods saying I was having problems and instead of the £100 I normally pay they would let me pay £50 for two months which I did, then as soon as the two months were up they went back to continually phoning and sending letters, I've written asking them to let me have reduced payments for 6 months but seem
  15. I have a Very mail order catalogue for many many years, have a huge credit limit and only every owe it £100 - £150 at a time at most. Maybe a couple of day late payments but NEVER been in default, never not paid etc etc. can they just send me a letter increasing the general interest rate from 14% to 26% a nd make it apply to the amount I have outstanding. I thought it would be on future orders but it appears it's on everything I owe. Can they just randomly put the rate up? I didn't order goods at 26% can they legally just effectively charg
  16. Dear fellow members, Some advice on the following saga, which has been going on for years, would be appreciated. I'll try and keep the explanation as short as possible. In 2011, I deposited a cheque into my NW account. A few days later, it appeared to have cleared because I had available funds showing in my account, so I withdrew some money. The day after I withdrew money, the cheque bounced, which left my account significantly over my overdraft limit. I speak with Collections and suggest that we speak again in a month's time, by which time, I'd have done some figures and wor

  19. hi first time post.Dont know if it is valid,but is it common for Very to up its prices by !00s of pounds? To give an examplewe were going to order an american fridge,we saw it in currys for the same price, £699, we put it in our basket, and left it there, when we came back later it had changed to £959......i emailed them but they sent back a standard email saying it was a rare pricing error, i know for a fact it had been like that for a few months, and now they are annoying me with the fact they can shunt prices up...to quote them it was a rare occasion,but i know for a fact they have don

  23. Hi, I desperately need help in regards to some catalogue account problems that are really affecting my credit score. I will start with saying that I have recently (end of Feb) been diagnosed as suffering from bipolar disorder and this is the reason for my current problems. I had bad credit from 4 years ago that I had dealt with and had repayment plans for and had never missed a payment since these were set up . Back in November of 2012 I opened accounts with both Freemans and Fashion World and made all payments on time and had no problems up until October of 2013.
