  1. More than half of British households are set to see an increase in the cost of energy in April after the regulator, Ofgem, raised price caps. Ofgem sets maximum prices that can be charged for gas and electricity to those who have not switched suppliers and are on default tariffs. The new cap could see these households typically pay an extra £117 a year. The regulator is allowing suppliers to cover the higher costs they face on the wholesale market. "We can assure these customers that they remain protected from being overcharged for their energy and that these increases are only due to actual rises in energy costs, rather than excess charges from supplier profiteering," said Dermot Nolan, chief executive of Ofgem. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47133564
  2. Hello all, My very first post ever on here. Please can I bend ears, pick brains as I'm confused about the letters I've had today. Letters in my maiden name, I was married in 2003. Debt amount 943.43 I understand the letters are stating they are a statement from year 2012 right through to 2018. Stating they haven't applied interest or sent statements and I do understand this with an apology. Original debt citi financial Then it's saying passed or changed to arrow and now cap quest have got the debt. I do recall cap quest contacting me on my mobile a few weeks ago, I didn't recognise number so did a Google search. Didn't ring them back and thought nothing of it. Today came home with letters with different dates from 12 to 2018. Every single ccj or default has been lifted off my credit file 2 months ago. Following a painful debt paying process I can honestly say this has blown me. I'm worried. I have paid everything and now I've got this. On one of the statements in May 2013, it appears I've paid AND I do not recall me ever paying this, but a 15.00 payment has been made..... This has thrown me and no idea what it means. The start of letter reads, fixed term credit agreement, with ms E Maiden name and citi financial. If you require further info or for me type out what they say, each letter is the same, just different years. However, each year is dated 1st May 2012, then 1st May 2013 etc. Checked out the days unless they work on a Sunday.... The only letter that's different is one printed this week. It's ref is remediation of account. It is from Arrow and makes no ref to cap quest apart from saying if wish to discuss at bottom. Stating under rules cca 1974 stating required by law to write and noticed that we haven't written to you. Further saying that a full review of my account and failed to provide me with statements since May 2011. To remidy this, we have compiled all your statements. On the what does this mean to you. It states, this exercise does not affect your account, repayments or your obligations to repay. If anyone knows what it means and what I need to do. Not sure about this payment In 2013 either. Not sure the action to take on this Not sure the action they can take on me. Thank you

  4. Hello all, Mods please move if in the wrong section? About 8 years ago I had a Debt Relief order against me. I've recently decided to contact all the financial companies I had dealings with and see if I was miss sold PPI any form? I have had Barclays admit they mis sold PPI and compensate me £1075 Hsbc I've not had a reply from yet? However capitol one have stated that they are making a redress payment to me of £ 60:45. Today I got a letter from capitol one saying that they have refunded the full amount and that it was Added to my account to reduce the debt owed to capitol one .....? Can they do that? I thought the debt was written off when I got a DRO ? Any advice appreciated

  6. I really need some help with a problem I have. I was on a 4 day touring holidayicon last week in Scotland in my second hand motorhome which I only purchased around 4 months that I have been saving up for years to buy. On the second day in Scotland the service light came on. With only just purchasing it I wanted to get it seen to quickly I booked it into Arnold Clark, Falkirk Road Grangemouth. I told them exactly what type the motorhome was and they said it wasn't a problem they could sort it out for me the following day which was the Wednesday. I took it into them and waited from 10:30am until around 3:30pm then went to the service desk and asked how the service was doing. I was informed the service had been done but they were having an issue resetting the service light and they would have to take the motorhome to another garage up the road for the light to be turned off. I agreed to wait so they took the motorhome. Over an hour later I returned to the service desk again for another update. They said they still were having an issue turning the service light off and it must be a problem with my motorhomes body computer. they said they couldn't do it. I immediately called the dealership where I purchased the motorhome from in Lancashire and they said they could turn the light off for me if I bought it into them on the Saturday. I paid Arnold Clark for the service as I wanted to get away as by this time it was about 5pm and going dark because its winter and I was booked into a campsite in Edingburgh. I got into the motorhome and drove off. I got about half a mile down the road when I noticed that now not only was the service light illuminated but the airbag fault light was also illuminated all the time, which Arnold Clark hadn't mentioned anything about. I returned to Arnold Clark immediately. They initially denied all knowledge of the airbag light and said it must of been on when I brought the motorhome in as it was impossible for them to of caused it. after a lot of heated talk they finally ask me to return the following day so they could attempt to rectify the issue. However, knowing the garage in Lancashire could turn the lights off I didn't return the Arnold Clark the following day and instead had a days holiday driving around sight seeing, which is why I was in Scotland in the first place. Plus as Arnold Clark were unable to turn the light off on the service day, it was logical to assume they wouldn't be able to turn it off the next day either and I would waste another day of my 4 day holiday for nothing. The weather from Tuesday through to Friday was mostly terrible with torrential rain and high winds, plus I was smothered in a cold. on the Friday morning I decided to drive down to my parents house in Lancashire which was mid point on my way home to Hampshire and also only 10 miles from the garage in Lancashire where I bought the motorhome from. I arrived at my parents early on Friday, it was still raining and windy I decided to immediately take the motorhome into the dealership. However, on the way from my parents house to the dealership the motorhome started to make a strange engine noise. on arriving at the dealership I popped the bonnet with the service guy standing there. We found the oil filler cap was missing from the engine and the engine bay was coated and dripping with oil from the engine. The oil filler cap was found in the window screen wiper well above the engine. I had driven in excess of 600 miles with no oil filler cap in place and oil squirting all over the place. I was smothered in a cold and with the rain and wind I hadn't noticed or smelt anything wrong. I immediately called the Arnold Clark dealership to complain. The head service guy there spoke to me and informed me it was impossible for it to be their error has after servicing all vehicles are inspected by someone else prior to returning the vehicle to the customer. Yet from the point the motorhome was returned to me after the service, I had either been driving, cooking or sleeping in it until it being parked outside the front window of my parents house for 10 minutes before driving it down to the dealership and finding oil everywhere. Arnold Clark as informed me they will investigate the issue but they seriously doubt its anything to do with them. The investigation will take several days and I must not have the motorhome worked on by anyone else in that time. they expect me to stay at my parents house 250 miles away from home and miss work until they finish their investigation. The dealership in Lancashire has had a quick look at the engine and have found the turbo has been damaged due to lack of engine oil as it is now making a strange noise. Luckily though, they don't think there is any other damage to the engine, but they can't really tell properly without taking the engine apart. All they have done is fill the engine with new oil and made sure the oil filler cap is in its correct place and apart from being noisy it seems to run. From my initial conversation with Arnold Clark I know all they are going to do is fob me off saying its nothing to do with them I will be left with, at best, a damaged turbo that needs fixing, probably at my own expense I just think it is wrong and I am absolutely disgusted. I think Arnold Clark should own up to their error and I should be refunded the £224.96 for the service, the £61 something pence I have had to pay for the engine to be quickly inspected, refilled with oil and cleaned, plus whatever the cost of fixing the turbo and whatever else is wrong with the engine will be. Incidentally, The dealership in Lancashire turned sorted out the dashboard lights in no time. So what were Arnold Clark doing??
  7. Evening We took out cap one card in 2002 and have put in a mis-sell complaint that's been rejected. We did receive cheque due to Plevin side of things. Cap one said we ticked the box during the internet application I swear it was application from magazine and tbh I don't even think we had internet but anyway. They say PPI was requested by tick box and if the relevant sections were blank PPI would not have been added to the account. They say no interaction with a cap one representative when PPI was purchased. I had already sent SAR to them and copy of application they sent me has no tick. We would never have ticked for PPI can anyone advise us on whether we can carry on as I'm thinking shouldn't they be proving they box was ticked ? Any help is appreciated.
  8. Hi folks, i have posted on the forums before and successfully won in a claim against me. This recent claim against me for an alleged debt of 3,815.60 inclusive of their so called costs..(which to me are ropey). .please bear with with me as i need to refresh my knowledge of certain aspects in compiling my defence... In the claim form particulars . .. there is no mention of when this alleged debt was instigated , i.e. when i am supposed to have defaulted . It is my understanding that this should be there on the claim form..by default...(help with this appreciated). the claiment states that i have been notified of the assignment from "shop direct" by letter.. . i have received no letter . i would require proof of this... but such a letter is not the deeds of assignment.. if i am correct? i intend to counter this claim and request the necessary 28 days. . rather than the 14... been through this before and which forms to fill in. .. so it is not this info. i seek... just a refresher would be good at this stage on what ammunition i can avail of. i think these people sent me a letter months ago offering me to only pay 80.00 pounds. .. and i am given to wondering should i have tried to settle it at that stage... Any advise greatly appreciated..
  9. Hi there I am trying to find out if Lowells did buy the debt are they liable to pay the PPI or is it the Cap One as the Original creditor who is liable to pay this back. I have read it somewhere it is the original creditor who has the right to PPI. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have a Cap One card with a small balance which would be SBd in a few months. Lowells claimed that they bought the debt but I had a dispute with Cap One for a long while. I have some PPI on that card which I want to claim. Lowell had put a Default Note in my CRA and the account is in their name although I had a dispute with the original creditor. Are they allowed to do this? I am going to send them a letter so would be grateful if anyone has had similar experience and has got a letter so I can send Lowell's a similar letter. Many thanks
  10. Hi Guys, CCA request return - for Capital One, they sent me what purported to be a reconstituted copy of an agreement from 1998 and told me that they were quite confident that it was fully enforcable. I, of course. have no way of knowing whether this copy is accurate or not. Also, I suspect that they have sent a reconstituted copy because they don't have the original. I have sent them a subject access request to try to flush this out. Do you think I should respond to their letter saying that I don't recognise the document and would expect them to produce the a copy of the executed agreement in order to confirm that the debt is enforcable in court? Or something else? As ever, your help is much appreciated. I think you guys are providing a hugely valuable public service. S

  13. Hi All, I'm sorry to return but I again need a little bit of advice regarding a letter from Mortimer Clarke in relation to an alleged debt with capital one... I received a claim form from Cabot Financial via Mortimer Clarke.... Details below Claim Form Issue....18/11/2016 Received.... 21/11/2016 AOS Submitted... 29/11/2016 Defend all AOS Received... 30/11/2016 CCA request sent to Cabot...28/11/2016 CCA request received by Cabot and signed for.....30/11/2016 CPR request sent to Mortimer Clarke... 28/11/2016 CPR request received by Mortimer Clarke and signed for... 30/11/2016 POC... 1.By an agreement between capital one and the defendant on or around 01/07/2009 (the agreement) Capital one agreed to issue the defendant with a credit card. The defendant failed to make the minimum payments due and the agreement was terminated. The agreement was assigned to the claimant.. 2.. THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS XXXX... As of todays date the following has happened.... 1) No response from Cabot for the CCA request 2) Mortimer Clarke responded to the CPR request with the following letter dated 01/12/2016 received 07/12/2016 Dear XXXX We acknowledge your request for documentation pursuant to CPR 31.14 We Confirm our client is willing to agree to the extension of 28 days, for you to file your defence, Pursuant to CPR 15.5(2) please notify the court in writing of the agreement.... CPR 31.14 relates to a right to inspect a document and can be distinguished from standard disclosure of evidence during the course of proceedings.

We would be grateful if you could confirm what documents you have in your possession or control relating to this matter to avoid duplication over document inspection.

  14. Early exit charges for people taking money out of their pension pots will be capped at 1%, the financial regulator has confirmed. The new rules will affect anyone taking money out of a personal pension from 1 April 2017. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said providers who already charge less than 1% will not be allowed to raise their fees. Those taking out new pension contracts will face no early exit charge at all. Workplace pensions will be subject to the same rules, but these will not come into effect until October 2017, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37985525
  15. Just a thought. If you are on ESA and you have not got savings above the threshold of £6000.00. Is it possible to try and save by the help of family members to save for an old age pension, not to be touched until your official retirement age? This is just a general enquiry on behalf of my friend who is already worrying for her retirement, if she lasts that long! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you, and if it's in the wrong place please move the post to where it should belong. I put it here as she is on ESA. The silly thing here is, she can hardly live on her ESA as it stands at the moment, never mind save e bean!
  16. I would be grateful to know if anybody who has been successful in a claim against Santander on the 2008 svr/cap margin issue could explain the grounds on which the claim was made; was it on the basis of breach of contract on the bank's part or the longer-term financial implications of Santander's application of the cap margin increase. Cheers
  17. Hi For a while Arrow and now Drysden Fairfax have been irritating me with a Capital One CC account which was defaulted on. Taken out in 2001. Last payment approx 3 years ago. In May, I CCA'd them, eventually received the attached document. They say they've sent a Recon, quoting a high court decision in 2009. This document is all they sent, despite their letter saying that they have also sent a copy of the terms & conditions. Does not sending the accompanying t&c's mean it's failed CCA reply? More importantly, is the attached CCA enforceable? It's termed as an Application Certficate? Prescribed terms? (I'm not too clever on this aspect) Thoughts and advice appreciated.

    The Benefit Cap

    I am about to move to an area where my rent will be nearly double what I am paying now. (I get HB) I have just been told I will get the severe disability allowance as I live alone. ( I did not apply for this) This means I will receive in combined benefits...ie: Support group, PIP and housing benefit, which will be more than £350 per week including housing. Am I affected? Can anyone advise? Thank you.
  20. Hi all A couple of years ago I left my work after being diagnosed with 2 neurological illnesses, this meant I could no longer work and am now on a long (3 year) ESA award and am awaiting a PIP assessment in a couple of weeks (thats another story sigh) I owed £300-400 to Capital One and due to the illness, depression, hospital stays and lack of money I just stuck my head in the ground and ignored everything. Today court papers arrived from Lowells (attached) apart from filling them in online what else do I do here? The debt is only 2 years or so old so not statute barred and probably half of it is fees and interest I think as the original debt wasn't that high. Thanks for the help
  21. Banks should cap unarranged overdraft fees and warn customers before they go overdrawn, the competition watchdog has said. The Competition and Markets Authority says this and other measures could save bank customers £1bn over five years. The provisional conclusions of the 18-month study into personal and business banking suggest competition is weak in the industry. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36309396
  22. Hi Everyone, After some advice please if you have the time, please reply. My situation as it stands: Court papers received from Lowell Portfolio 1 LTD (assigned from CAP 1) claiming the full amount owed on the credit agreement. I was three weeks off being 6 years since defaulted so clearly this is a final ditch attempt. Had to stop paying 6 years ago as was unemployed with no income and huge debts. Previously requested SAR & CCA from CAP 1 and all they have ever provided is a new copy template agreement, no signed documents. They have repeatedly stated 'this is your credit agreement with us' and that is it. Requested a PPI reclaim from CAP 1 in 2009 which at the time with 8% interest amounted to just under half the debt amount overall. PPI and unlawful charges claim resulted in an offer of £16 for unlawful charges. I was self employed at the time of the card application and PPI would not have been suitable for me. So what is my next step? I can counter claim, which I am happy to do if required, for the PPi and unlawful charges. Can I go down the road of non-enforceable because of no Credit Agreement? or is there another way forward? I am currently a carer for my disabled child and whilst I own my own home it is in negative equity. Thanks for reading. Bobby I should also point out, having looked again at my SAR response from them: 'We are not obliged to send an original signed copy of the a credit agreement. However, under section 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, we can provide you with a copy of the credit agreement as varied, upon receipt of a £1.00 payment' So they have never sent me any signed CA with my signature on it. Is my next step to do a CCA to Lowell asking for this? Can they continue onto court and have a judge enforce this 'agreement' if they dont have any signed paperwork? I am panicing now as I am not sure if the correct thing is to contact them and acknowledge the debt at all. Thanks.

After 2007 Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Debt purchaser Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? Yes Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Yes Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No, I have Notice of sum in arrears 5/10/14, Notice of default 2/11/14, Statement of default 4/12/2014 All sent directly from Capital One Why did you cease payments? Repayments got out of hand & I did not seek help when I should have done. What was the date of your last payment? Unsure, all statements were online, I have no paper statements for reference 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 managemnent plan? No I have acknowledged service & believe there are many default charges in this balance which I would like to contest. The POC is now incorrect as I made a payment on 10th Feb & I'm due to make another on 11th March as per a letter I sent letter which I sent to Restons prior to receiving their claimform, this letter has been returned to me stating they will not acknowledge receipt or respond to any letters without my signature claiming they must be sure who they are corresponding with, after they were sure enough of my identity to issue court paperwork to me of course! I'm assuming I need to send a cpr.13.14 now but can I simply initial the letters rather than using my signature? Also how will I tackle the charges issue? Thanks for reading this, all help is greatly appreciated
  24. Hi All, after a bit of advice please, OH was sent an invalid default notice and now the account has been terminated, and passed to capquest. what would be the best letter to use to deal with this one.. cheers lets
  25. I received a Northampton generated claim form on Friday for an old capital 1 credit card debt. The total including court fee and legal costs comes to some £800. The claim has been issued by Dryden via Cabot, both of whom i have no direct dealings with but have in recent months received threatening letters and demands for payment etc, i have not acknowledged any of them. The claim states that this account was opened in 2005 and i have failed to repay. I cannot recall when this account was last used but it would of been some considerable time ago and i would imagine around 2007 at the latest. I have obviously to do something with the claim form within the time allowed. I'm minded to defend the claim as i would imagine it was subject to fees etc. At around that time i was in serious financial difficulties and battling to save the family home so i have little doubt the money or at least part of it may well be owing. What is my best approach to this and how do i determine if this is too old to chase. I have looked through a fair few threads but must say im a little overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information and threads so don't want to jump in and go down the wrong route. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
