About Me


  1. Hi, In 2009, I went slightly over my agreed overdraft with HSBC and they slammed me with a £100 charge. On 17 November 2009, HSBC called me to let me know I'd gone over the agreed limit. I could not afford to repay the enitre amount until I got my student loan (which was running late, due to the Student Loans Company needing medical evidence to let me repeat the year). HSBC were okay with all of this, and we agreed I would make a small payment of £15 on 3rd December 2009. I made the payment as agreed. In a separate savings account, I was collecting money from my h
  2. I have just received a Notice of Hearing of Application for an order to set aside judgement. The defendant had previously acknowledged service of the claim but failed to put forward any defence within the allocated time frame, a judgement was then made in absence of a defence and baliffs became involved. Hasn't the defendent left it too late to do this? Also, as the claimant - is it necessary for me to attend the hearing as it would be very difficult due to work commitments? (I work in the medical profession and cannot get cover for the day). If i cannot attend is there any point in sending
  3. I'm trying to gather evidence that Santander uses applications for set-asides as a matter of course -i.e. this is the way they do business. Any pointers to cases would be very useful Ta Very Nuch
  4. Last year i had to buy some new wheels for my car as a couple of the original ones were dented out of shape and it was starting to affect the handling. I bought an online package of wheels and tyres and after fitting them the car still didn't feel right so i've spent the last 6 months replacing most of the suspension components, getting alignments, etc but the car was still wandering all over the place. I took it to a garage today and they suggested trying different tyres and now it finally feels like a proper car again. When i bought the wheels package it didnt state the name of th
  5. Hi, I'm new to this so please accept my apologies if I'm in the wrong forum. A debt with O2 has been passed to Moorcroft. Moorcroft are now telling me that they have applied to the court for a judgment date because I did not reply to their letter that informed me that this would happen (I don't recall specifically getting that letter). They tell me that they can apply for a judgment by default and that once it's applied for the court do not have to contact me and I have no alternative but to pay the whole amount (approx £340) if I wish to avoid getting a CCJ. Th
  6. Hello I feel in trouble and hope someone may be able to help. I have an historic debt to Lloyds TSB which is now with a collection agency. I am going to court next week for a set aside hearing where I think the debt is statue barred. I have a letter from the agency stating that the "cause of action" I referred to in a previous letter is the default date of Sept 2006 rather than the last payment made which was Feb 2004 and therefore their action falls within 6 years as their claim was made in Dec 2011. I think that flies in the face of this sample letter from MSE be
  7. We bought a Toyota Celica T Sport in August which developed a serious problem on the first day (big end bearing failure). We obtained judgment against the dealer for just over £5,000 in December. He didn't turn up. He then made an application to set aside on the basis that the court staff told him that if he submitted evidence and said he couldn't come his case would be considered on the papers. He didn't give the reason for not coming until the day of the application (both him and his co-director were in bed with flu on the same day!") There was no medical certificate. The form didn't s
  8. Hi i would be grateful for any clarification other caggers can provide. LTSB Gold Service Payment application form circa 1990's. across the top of the application 'Lloyds Bank Gold Service Payment/Photo Card Application Form' underneath Credit agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. this is very confusing as part of the document states under 'Security' 'the overdraft facility made available under this agreement is unsecured and shall not be secured or treated as secured by virtue of any mortgage, charge or other security which i/we may have already give
  9. We have had various cases recently where PPCs have been involved, but all these relate to issues before 1st October. However have any of these cases set any precedents that may assist a defendant in a parking dispute after the 1st October 2012?

  11. Hi i have set up a few too many companies which have traded less than 50k per year in some cases dormant with a small overdraft some have overdrawn DLAs which need correcting. I have not kept proper accounts but I can get these sorted, but I need to close these companies as soon as possible and move on. Does anyone have any advice please? Thanks in advace Acy
  12. Hello All, Happy New Year, hope everyone had a great time over Christmas. I would like to seek advice please? I was “given” a Citi Credit Card when I got a loan out with them sometime in 2007. I had not signed any Credit Card Agreement for this. I realised recently that there were PPI premiums on there. Citi have agreed to refund all the premiums and give me interest although no period for the repayment has been stipulated on the offer letter. I have been reading through some of the forums and have sent a letter asking for a breakdown of how the offer has be
  13. HSBC is expected to pay more than $1.5bn (£933m) in fines to US authorities within weeks to settle money-laundering investigations into its business. HSBC is expected to pay more than $1.5bn (£933m) in fines to US authorities within weeks to settle money-laundering investigations into its business. The bank could be fined the sum as early as next week as part of a settlement with federal prosecutors, according to reports yesterday. HSBC has put aside $1.5bn to meet the cost of the fines, but admitted at its latest results presentation that the eventual penalty could be “significantly high
  14. Hi, Great site and very impressed with all the advise. Unfortunately I'm not sure where to post this. As I'm new to this site I will try and keep this brief 3 years ago I had a CCJ registered against me and I ended up paying within 3 months of the judgement, purely because I had a letter threatening bailiffs The original invoice, (from my burglar alarm company), was for the yearly servicing plus for the monitoring. The monitoring is an extra service which I paid for as I used to spend time away from home. I had decided to cancel this service and the additional line required.
  15. Millions of Lloyds customers will this week learn that their accounts are being transferred to a new bank. Letters are being posted to 3.5million account holders at 447 branches in England and Wales who will be moved by November next year. It is likely they will become part of the Co-operative Bank. To begin this process, Lloyds is moving customers to its banking licence held by Lloyds TSB Scotland. This will happen over the next few months. The Lloyds TSB Scotland brand currently has 185 branches and 1.1million customers. In November, the TSB Scotland licence will be transferred to the C

  17. Hi, My company has been issued a Statutory demand by POST by a company that provided us Professional services. We used them for 2 + years. We used to use their services and they would bill us for the time spent. We would request them for some work and they would bill us in good faith that was the arrangement so no confirmation/approval of time spent was required The last two invoices were ridiculously overcharged for the last invoice we asked a break down of the time spent on each of the items. What we got was a vague scribbling of the time spent. I d

  19. Good evening all I am currently helping a friend who had a CCJ judgement by default at Northampton CC for unpaid solicitor’s fees on 30 July 2012. It has now come to a point where the solicitors have made an application to the courts for a charging order against her home. The original hearing was on 3 October but was adjourned to 28 November. I am strongly in belief that my friend has very good reasons for asking the original CCJ judgement to be set aside for the reasons set out below. For the purposes of this thread my friend will be X and the solicitor’s Y. Timeline 3J une
  20. Hoping for some advice please. In summary - A claim was made against me which, as well as all the preceding correspondence, was sent to an incorrect non-existent address, therefore I knew nothing of it. The claim etc was returned to the solicitor as address unknown but they still pressed ahead with a default Judgment. They presumably found my correct address in the end and subsequently communicated with me, making mention of the claim and subsequent default Judgment. I have been corresponding ever since in an attempt to put the matter to bed. Having asked the claimant's solicitor to s

  22. GM firstly a note to say this is a temp. thread as all of my previously started threads are currently lost in cyberspace. Bit of history:- Credit card first taken out in August 1999. Hubby always been self employed. DMP started in 2008 Stopped payments in 2009 and account charged off and has since been passed to several DCA's but I have dealt with them all by CCA requests which none have been able to comply with. SAR requested in March this year in an attempt to get the CCA and all statements to do PPI claim. Information received in June. Looking through the mountain of
  23. Hi, My partner received a claim form NICPC on 29th June which stated Welcome Financial as the Claimant and Hegarty as the address for sedning documents. My partner filled in the admission form with an offer to pay £50 per month. This debt was last paid in 2007 when his relationship brokedown with his wife and truth be told, he was not entirely sure that the amount owed was accurate, but just thought it better to agree to pay and get it out of the way. Without any other communication, he then received a Judgment for the Claimant (after determination) saying that t
  24. I had a Credit Card from M&S and the contract was terminated around 05/2006 and the account was transferred to DC (Legal&trade collection), one of there agent used to do the door collection of £25 a month from 07/2006 and then I stopped the door collection and the last payment was on 06/05/2008 and the closing balance was £2128 as shown on the collection card. I terminated the door collection because I felt that I was intimidated. After that I had phone calls and I ignored them as I had few DC on my back and then I heard nothing from them for 4 years. On 19 July 2012, I had a letter
