  1. Hi CCJ was obtained by HFC Bank in 2007 - I paid judgement amount until 6 months ago when CCJ was 6 years old and removed from credit report. A balance remains outstanding. Debt was sold to MCE who are now chasing via Mortimer Clarke. Mortimer Clarke are threatening returning to court to obtain attachment of earnings etc from original judgement. Do I continue to pay HFC at judgement amount? pay MCE? or neither?
  2. Hello everybody I hope you can help me, today I received a letter from DLC regarding a very old debt from Black Horse Ltd (original loan was taken out through Chartered Trust way back in 2000/2001) with the amount owing of £1,886.59. The letter is as follows: Dear XXXX Your account County Court Claim Number XXXXXXXX We have been trying to work with you in resolution to the above claim for which we have obtained a County Court Judgement. As there is still a balance outstanding, your account has been placed with Cabot Financial (Europe) Limited to act as the agent servicing your account. Their next step is to pass your account to Mortimer Clarke Solicitors. What will the Solicitors do? Mortimer Clarke Solicitors will write to you and explain that they have been instructed to continue court proceedings against you if you do not contact them. They will explain the need for legal action to progress. We hope that you will enter into a payment arrangement that you can afford in order to prevent the need for legal action to progress. You can call Mortimer Clarke Solicitors on 0333 XXX XXXX Your new reference number is XXXXXXXX Now I have not had any paper work from the County Court, the letter I received from DLC is stated as being generated on 11/07, also I thought that a solicitor would have to issue the paperwork to the court for a Claim to be issued even though according to the letter my account is to be passed to Mortimer Clarke? The interesting part of this letter is that they hope that I will enter into a repayment agreement, could this be a trick that DLC/Cabot could be trying to pull?. I have requested a copy of the claim form from DLC as I have not received this and I have also asked for a copy of the original credit agreement and a statement of account confirming when the last payment was made, I have not had any communication from DLC for ages until today. I have checked my credit file and there is no CCJ registered and I am thinking about contacting the County Court Bulk Center to confirm the Claim Number. I hope somebody can help and advise me as I am very concerned. Many Thanks
  3. Any help appreciated I bought a car on HP in 2003, It was beyond my means and I only made 4 repayments -the car was repossed in 2005. I had a company called Marlin ringing me at work constantly and I was bullied into paying £15pm - I moved house and changed banks and the payments stopped in 2013. In 2015 I had letters from Cabot requesting money - over the years I have argued with them over the debt. They say it was assigned to them in 2016 yet I have statements from the original HP company in 2007 showing the balance - so how can they have it assigned if it was still with the original lender. It was due to become statute barred on 01/02/19 - however Mortimer issued an online claim on 27/12/18 - I defended and requested a SAR - they have only sent me 2 out of 9 pages of the credit agreement - which includes PPI and Gap insurance. There are various inconsistencies in the paperwork, dates amounts etc. Do I stand a chance in court of getting the claim in my favour or should I just negotiate with the Solicitor on a reduced amount?
  4. Back in 2010 I received a ccj which I have been paying £10 a month to Hillesden Securities who were managing the account on behalf of Cabot. I have recently received a letter from Cabot informing me that they have asked Mortimer Clarke to take over managing my account. Apparently Mortimer Clarke are happy to keep to the repayment plan agreed with Hillesden, but they will need to speak to me to arrange for my payments to be sent to them directly. I don't particularly want to speak to them as I'm worried they will start to harass me for higher payments. I have found an email address for them so am going to use that. My question is though, should I be worried that Cabot have moved the account to Mortimer Clarke after all this time?
  5. Advice please I have received this letter, see pics, its a debt with marbles credit card which was then sold to cabot this year, now i have got this letter from Mortimer Clarke regarding potential court action if i do not respond in 30 days. ( i also have an aqua credit card and aqua loan which i have also not paid off they are sending me letters as well but not go to this stage yet and they are the same company as Marbles so i guess will be doing the same thing next. I cant afford to pay this and have been struggling. Long story short, my ex used to take my money and use my cards to gamble and pay for a drug habit i didn't know about i was subject to mental torture for an extended period of time, if i didnt let him do this he would threaten to tell my job lies to get me sacked which made me feel sick as i love my job and i am good at it, now he is finally out of my life i have a shed load of debts that will be chasing me like this one. What is the best thing for me to do. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi, I received a letter from Ruthbridge over a DLC debt which has been assigned to them, this is very old although payments were being made to dlc through a dmc in 2011. I received this letter threatening to make me bankrupt! I decided to send a CCA request to them and have just received a reply today returning my postal order. This states 'we write further to your recent correspondence requesting information with regard to our reasons for contacting you. We take note of the points you have raised in your correspondence, however we must advise we are not in a position to reply with your request at this stage as we are required to verify information we have been provided with yourself for the purposes of data protection in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. We would appreciate it if you would contact our offices so that we can complete the necessary verification and address and further queries you may have with regards to this matter' Obviously it is a trick to try and get me to call them, but where does this leave me with the CCA request bearing in mind they returned the p order? I should also point out that this debt is no where on my credit file and I think the original agreement must have been way back in about 2004/5, I doubt there is any chance they would have the original agreement. Thanks roadhog
  7. Good Afternoon, I am hoping somone would give me some advice, I have been recieving letters from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors, i have attached the most recent one. This debt is from a Loan i had from Sainsburys in 2011. I had been making payments on it for some time and paid 70% of it off. For some reason the payments stopped, possible due to closing my old Barclays Bank Acc and moving address aruond the same time, the loan was fogotten about completely. Cabot are now after the remaining £300 of the debt + all their fees and charges. I have responded saying i will pay £70 per month which is what i used to pay Sainsburys but they now want me to fill out their expenditure form. What are my options here? They mention Court Judgement and a Warrent of control? but i havent reieved anything from the Court this issue was only bough to my attention about 6 weeks ago. I have not refused to pay, i have responded to all thier letters a Warrant of control seems slightly over the top. Any help would really be appreciated. i checked my Clear Score and its been hit hard by this! infact its gone down about 90 points. Many thanks
  8. Hi , Blackhorse finance gained a charging order on my property a few years ago , they then got a CCJ which i had money taken from my wages to pay. Since July 2011 i have been unable to work and now live on benefits , no payments have been made since. I received a letter from their solicitor saying that they are going to seek a warrant for sale of goods. Can i do anything to stop this as i am unable at present to pay anymore than £1.00 / month and my budget sheet from the CCCS shows this. Is it worth asking for the debt to be written off or the Judgement set aside because of illness? Thanks
  9. Hi All Around 2010/11 I was in heaps of debt, various cc, loans etc, totalling c £30k. I took some great advice from this site, worked hard, and managed to settle everything. Finally debt free by summer of 2016, credit score still not great, but heading in the right direction. And now I receive a letter from Mortimer Clarke (Cabot): ‘As you are aware a County Court Judgement has been entered against you under Claim Number QWERTY123 and we ask you to pay the outstanding sum of £2244 direct to this office within 14 days.’ The letter encloses an income and expenditure form with a view to arranging a monthly payment, but goes on to say: ‘…our client may be willing to accept a reduced amount for a lump sum payment to settle the debt’. First I’ve heard of it, and I’m gutted, thought all this nonsense was behind me. I’ve established that the CCJ was issued at Northampton and has subsequently been transferred to my local court. All paperwork was sent to an old address, which is why I knew nothing about it. All of this happened just over 3 years ago, and I’m just finding out about it now. And strangely, it doesn’t appear on my credit file? As I thought I was debt free, my circumstances allowed me to become a student, so I’m currently studying full-time, with negligible income (averaging about £200 pm). Seems to me I have 2 choices (unless any of you can suggest a third way?) 1. Offer about £20 pm, which they are unlikely to accept, as it would run for 9 years. 2. Offer a lump sum, I think I could scrape together £600 - £700, but again this probably wouldn’t be enough. All I know about the CCJ is what the lady at Northampton told me: That it has been transferred to my local court (don’t know when), That the payment terms were ‘Forthwith’ and, That the claim said it was in respect of a CC agreement ‘entered into on or about 19/05/2004’. (Is it suspicious that the date of the agreement isn’t precise? Suggests to me that they don’t have a copy of it). In the scheme of things, the debt isn’t that big (given my situation 7-8 years ago), but this is hanging heavier than those bigger debts ever did, because my circumstances are different now, and I have no real income to work with. I really don’t know which way to turn with this. Would be so grateful for your thoughts. Cheers Scarboro
  10. Hi All Received a letter from Mortimer Clarke today regarding a debt to Cabot Financial. Letter claims their client obtained a judgement against me on 04/02/2016. First paragraph says "Because you have failed to pay the judgement debt in accordance with the terms of the judgement our client is now entitled to take action to enforce the judgement order against you. Our client has instructed us to apply to the County Court for an Attachment to Earnings order to be made against you." Final paragraph says "If you do not contact us within 7 days , then our client has instructed us to apply for an Attachment of Earnings Order against you." Notes: 1. I have checked Trust Online for my current and previous 3 addresses and there are no ccjs registered against me. 2. I did not receive any correspondence threatening to take me to court, advising I was being taken to court or asking if I wished to defend and finally I did not receive a judgement. 3. The letter makes no mention which court they obtained the judgement from or any judgement reference number. 4. The debt is from 2007 and I believe it may well be statute barred now. Can anyone provide any thoughts or advice on how I should proceed at this point? kind regards
  11. Hi all. Right so I had a Vanquis credit card, it defaulted in 2015 with about 3k owing. Ive had various letters about it from Cabot (whom the debt was assigned to at some point) and Dydens. In 2016 I recived a latter from Drydens, threatening legal action and also making lots of inaccurate statements about the CPR and legal process, etc...I replied to Drydens asking for the usual stuff, letter of assignment etc, they replied saying they were halting any legal action. In 2017 I received a letter from cabot again saying no legal action would be taken. Then last week I received a letter from Mortimer Clarke saying that they were now the solicitor AND also including form N434 - Change Of Legal Representative but on this form it staytes Claimant = cabot, Defendant = Me, Claim Number is blank. The actual letter claims judgment was made against me on .... (yes that what it says, there is a blank space !). I have not received any letters about this claim, I suspect there is no claim, I phoned Mortimer Clark who said the claim was performed by previous solicitors Drydens and that they didnt have the claim number..hhhmmm Ive phoned cabot who know nothing about this so it look very like;ly there is no claim. Im surprised though that MC are prepared to lie in this manner, it appears to be it could have serious repercussions. An obvious give away is the form N434 they sent me, this is required to be sent to all the parties and the court, are they seriously saying they sent this to the court without a claim number !!???, as I found out this couldnt be a admin oversight as they dont actually know the claim number. Any thoughts on what next ?. I intend to phone Drydens to hear what they have to say. Phone Northampton Court, not sure if they can help with a claim number but Ill double check there hasnt been claim. Write complaint to Mortimer Clark, why are they misleading me, is this fraudulent ?, they are after all trying to pressure me to pay what hasnt been adjudicated on yet. Follow up this complaint to SRA Andy

The Defendant failed to make the minimum payments due & the Agreement was terminated. The Agreement was assigned to the Claimant. THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS 1300 2.Costs I have not received prior notice of a claim to be issued. Value of the claim is 1511.83 Claim is for a credit card Original agreement was after 2007 Account was apparently assigned to Cabot Financial and the claim has been issued by them I did not receive a notice of assignment I don't recall if I received a default notice from Aqua I have received no Notice of Default Sums Ceased payments because I was out of work and claiming carers allowance I did contact Aqua and told them of my position, but they claimed I could afford a level of repayment that was way out of my affordability, I did try to negotiate reduced payments with Aqua but my offers were rejected by Aqua. I'm in the process of writing a CCA request, can anyone give me some help with what else I need to do please?
  13. Morning all, Just wondering if anyone can see anything wrong with this agreement which might render it unenforecable? Thought i had read something a while back regarding the ppi needing to be outlined seperately as opposed to being set out as here. If there anything else anyone can see is not right also, please say. This might be a bit of a tricky one if is not enforecable (long story) will fill peeps in at later date once know basics of where stand with it. Many many thanks as always, Mpols x im very aware how busy the forums are at the mo, so just going to bump until someone has a few mins. Many thanks Mpols x
  14. hey all i'm once again finding yorkshire bank causing me a troubling time. i had an overdraft of £500 with my YB current account. they wanted me to pay it back when i was in financial difficulties (the best timing). i made an arrangement of £20 a month but i paid £30 a month into the current account with the £10 covering interest. this all whilst on jsa too. i struggled paying that along with other arrangements i made with them. ..i was really naive about what i could offer them but once i got advice on it, i simply told them that i could no longer afford the arrangement and it was apparently passed onto collections. i don't understand it but my current account has now been closed. i was expecting a refund of charges after a decision made by the Fos into that account. the first instalment was made but nothing after and after making an of offer of payment of £1 a month, i have had an acceptance of that offer from a solicitors of yb i think but the amount is a lot higher. there's some letter and other charges apparently but the balance makes no mention of the refund i'm owed. so what should i do? i personally was thinking i'd outline all of this in a letter but i wanted to get some advice first as when it came to my fos decision, i wish i'd taken some help from here as the amount is nothing compared to what i was really owed but because i was none the wiser, i just thought it a really good offer at the time clueless me. ahh well..live 'n learn eh edit: i forgot to mention that i have a deadline for this token payment offer. should i try and resolve the amount first and then pay or make the payments £1 offer in the meantime? thanks in advance for any help
  15. Hello need some help with a CCJ letter received today from Mortimer Clarke, for what they say is a 2012 mobile phone account with EE that I can not remember ever having. I have had previous letters but not knowing what they were for just ignored them. It say I have 14 days to reply to the court letter or pay in full with their 75 pound charges on top what can I do. Regards Jdene
  16. Hi, Received two letters today: One from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors (dated 28/01/2016) Re: Cabot indicating that they have received no response to the claim form issued.( I was going to ignore it until I looked at the second letter...) Letter Two: Judgment for Claimant (in default), from the County Court, dated 28/02/2016 Claimant: Cabot Financial (UK) Ltd. I checked my credit file using Noddle: It shows one active credit card which is OK and currently active. Then .. Starting from Oct 2015 to Dec 2015 there is an entry for Cabot with a Default for each month. There is nothing else there, no balance history . The account details state that it is a credit card , defaulted 25/04/2010 - Balance: £680. Account start date 11/04/2008. On public information there is a CCJ from 28/02/2016. I had two credit cards back then , one I know was paid off, the other obviously was not. I think it may have been a Capital One credit card. I have never received a Claim form and have not had any dealings with Cabot. I have not had a Notice of Assignment . Should I contact to Court to apply for the Judgment to be set aside because I did not receive the Claim Form and have no proof that I owe Cabot anything? Can I get a copy of the Claim Form? (i feel disadvantaged because they seem to have all the information whereas I have none) Should then CCA Cabot and CPR 31:14 Mortimer Clarke? Any help or guidance greatly appreciated .... Thanks.
  17. Morning, folks. I'm in a particularly odd and confusing situation so any assistance in clarifying where exactly I stand would be greatly appreciated. In 2010 I took out a credit card with Virgin Money. In 2012 I defaulted on this due to financial difficulty and depression. I do not remember receiving a default notice from Virgin Money. It's possible I received a default notice from MBNA, but I closed an account with them in 2006 (I have the letter) so would have discounted it. In January of 2017 I found out a CCJ was registered against me with Hillesden Securities as the claimant. I did not receive any correspondence prior to it being registered, as I was not living at the address the CCJ is registered at. As soon as I found out about the CCJ (through a mortgage adviser telling me!) I attempted to contact Hillesden. This led me to DLC, which led me to Cabot, which led me to Mortimer Clarke. I spoke to a representative of theirs on the phone, explained the situation and asked if the judgement could be set aside. They said no, and that the best I could do was satisfy the CCJ. After some digging online I sent an N244 to my local court and received a hearing date. Mortimer Clarke did not show, the judge decided they hadn't been very helpful, and duly set aside the judgement. Happy days. This was earlier this month. Today I found a letter sent from Mortimer Clarke 4 days before the hearing, with the claimant now being ME III Ltd. The letter states they agree to the setting aside but that a full defense should be submitted within 21 days. They attached a draft order, assuming that the judge would made this order. She didn't. What happens now? Given that the draft order was not formalised, I'm assuming I do not have to submit any further defense (which I already submitted in full as part of the N244). And what are Mortimer Clarke likely to do when they receive the actual order from the court? Many thanks
  18. I have just received a letter from Mortimer Clarke stating that they act on behalf of their client Marlin Europe II Limited asking for details of my financial circumstances for a debt that they say a county court claim was issued on April 2014. It also has a claim number at the top of the letter and if I don't respond they will lift the stay and request Judgement. I have never had any claim form for this debt and I have logged on to MCOL and there is nothing on there with that claim number. I also went on to my credit file and it says the debt they are talking about is with Cabot for a different amount. I'm not sure what to do.
  19. Name of the Claimant ? ME III Limited Date of issue – 12 Dec 2016. What is the claim for – 1.By an agreement between WELCOME FINANCE SERVICES LTD & the Defendant on or around 21/11/08 ('the Agreement') WELCOME FINANCIAL SERVICES LTD agreed to loan the Defendant monies. The defendant did not pay the instalments as they fell due & the Agreement was terminated. The Agreement was assigned to the claimant. 2.THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS 5930.89 What is the value of the claim? £6440.89 Is the claim for a current account (Overdraft) or credit/loan account or mobile phone account? loan When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007? Unsure, I think is was around or before 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? Possibly, but I have no recollection. Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Again I don't know for certain. Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? Don't think so. Why did you cease payments? F ell into difficulties when losing my job in 2008, the payment demands were unreasonable, c harges were being added to the account at an alarming level (£10 for a letter/visit etc.) and after severel doorstep visits, I decided to just accept a default on my file and see what happened. A lot of what is claimed is charges, the original loan I think was £2000. What was the date of your last payment? Don't know, could possible be more than 6 years ago, I've asked for a full statement of the account. Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Haven't heard dirct from Welcome in many years. Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No Hi, I have read up on other cases and have already sent off the various requests for documents, and completed the online form stating I intend to defend all. But I may need further help. The particulars are as below. This is a very old debt that has dropped off my credit file, and I thought it had disappeared, to be fair I forgot about it. I received a reply from my CPR request today (30th Dec) as below. 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 believe that you may have already "inspected" the documents to which you make reference because on various dates in the past they would have been sent to you by another party such as the original creditor. We confirm that we have requested documents from the original creditor and will forward these to you upon receipt. The account will remain on hold in the meantime. Any advice on how to play this out would be very much apprecaited.

  21. Hi All, Received so much help and support way back in 2005-2008 which turned my life around. Unfortunately a DCA (CABOT) has re-surfaced issuing a CCJ Claim chasing what I believe to be a Statute Barred debt for Vanquis they have bought. I will post all details in the relevant place and look forward to your much appreciated assistance. Regards
  22. I am currently trying to get information from Hillesden regarding a HP agreement I took out in 2001 with Associates Capital for a car. This agreement was taken over by Welcome Finance. Prior to this change I contacted Associates and told them I could no longer afford the car due to personal circumstances at the time, and asked them to collect as I had the car for 2 years which was half the HP agreement timescale. They never collected the car. I contacted Welcome after the change and told them the same, that I could no longer afford the car and to collect. Again they did not but wanted me to take out a new agreement with them to re-finance the car. I refused to do this. After checking my credit report, Hillesden Securities now 'own' this alleged debt. I checked my credit report last month and this account was defaulted as an HP agreement. This month, however, they have defaulted me for the same amount and changed the type of default to a loan account. Can they do this? Anyone? The information is lodged with Callcredit reference agency, on two other reference agency files it shows as a HP agreement. Please let me know what you think before I write to Callcredit and Hillesden
  23. Apologises in advance if this comes across as a little vague but I am asking the question on behalf of my sister who is not a CAG member and as such I don't necessarily have all the facts. She received a letter from Mortimer Clarke Solicitors who are acting on behalf of M E III in regards to a debt of £1000 that they claim went the way of CCJ and remains unpaid. She has looked at her credit report and can see no sign of a CCJ and says she has never had one on there after I pointed out to her that if it was over 6 years ago it wouldn't appear on her report anyway. Rather foolhardedly she therefore ignored the first letter but has now received another letter from them stating that they are going to get an attachment of earnings. So I guess the first question is could there have been a CCJ that never appeared on her file? This seems unlikely I know but historically Ive had the experience of being in a joint IVA and it only appearing on my file not my wifes for some reason. With the above scenario seeming highly unlikely would the debt be statute barred based on it being over six years old? I have read that in some cases the court will revive the debt but am not sure what is required to trigger this. Finally what should her next step be as wouldn't any communication from her be seen as acknowledgement of the debt and therefore void the 6 year period anyway?
  24. Hi.. Good afternoon everyone, I really hope someone is able to help me. This morning I've received a County Court claim. The perusing claimant is Mortimer Clarke Solicitors acting on behalf of Cabot Financial. The debt of £413 is from a Capital One card from 2004 (£213 of this is interest charges). The last payment I believe I made to (Aktiv Kapital) was back in December 2009, although I can't confirm this as I have a different bank account now, and I've made no contact or acknowledgement since. I checked my credit file in late December (screen shot attached) and seen they (Cabot) had registered 2 recent payment defaults against me. Just checked my file again today and it's disappeared, no trace of it. However it did show the default payment date recorded on the account was 29/01/2010. so would this make it statute barred ? Do I still have time to send off a CCA request to Cabot in the hope of delaying this, or have I left it too late ? Should I complete the section of the court claim document to Dispute the Claim as it maybe Statute Barred ? Please help, not quite sure what my next course of action should be. Kind Regards L
  25. Name of the Claimant ?
