About Me


  1. Need a bit of help with an old Barclaycard debt that has been passed onto Robinson Way A bit of back story... In 1998 when I started college, Barclays were targeting students and offering them free mobile phones (this is before everyone had them!). I knew that Barclaycard's interest rate was pretty bad compared to most, so almost never used the card and had a direct debit set up to pay the minimum balance (standard student mentality). Fast forward to a couple of years ago... I hadn't seen any statements in years, but Barclaycard send me a notice of default to say that my direct
  2. Hi Fellas, Can anyone give me a link to the "Get lost, prove it" letter? Had a letter threatening court action, and while I have seen the last few off once papers arrived, I thought it best to try and get ahead of this one for her. Thanks

  4. Hi all I've received a letter of claim from Howard Cohen acting on behalf of Hoist portfolio Ltd. The debt relates to a former Barclaycard that started in June 2008 and later defaulted in in Dec 2013 (according to my noddle credit file). I was self employed at the time and quickly became over indebted at the time. The default amount is £12,500 and last payment made was March 2013. I've uploaded a redacted letter of claim I received recently. I received a very similar letter in Dec last year which I ignored and did not hear anything until now - the same request letter
  5. Hi there, Bit of Background Both parents have died in the 15 months, and the Estate is effectively the house they lived in, to be split between myself and my 2 brothers. Both of my brothers live in said house ( one is mentally handicapped and the other is his carer ). My father left debts of around 66k ( one a equity release mortgage of 56k,which we have cleared. ) So we are left with the remainder of debt that has come from (so far) 3 accounts that Philips and Cohen are handling . I am the Administrator of the estate, and ideally do not want to sell the house as it w
  6. I have today received a CCJ claim from the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre, for a credit card that was held with HSBC a few years ago. The last statement I can find for the account is 2009, although the assignment to the DCA was later than that date. Having read through the forums for some advice (which is very handy and I'm very grateful for) I'm going to write to them tomorrow with a CPR31.14 requesting the agreement, default notice and the assignment. From people's past experiences, what are the chances of them providing this information? And do they have t
  7. Good afternoon, Any help would really be appreciated. This relates to a loan that was taken out years ago and prior to 2009. I cannot be more precise at this moment. I got into financial difficulty and defaulted on the payments. This has been in the hands of a number of companies. I do not recall getting regular correspondence and I believe the last payment ever made was 2014. This has dropped off my credit file. I did receive a letter I August 2015 to say that I was entitled to redress on my loan as the discovered following changes of CCA (1/8/08) that they
  8. Hi I need some help from you experts out there. A few months ago i received a letter from Lowell saying i had an outstanding debt in excess of £600 on a mobile contract. I sent them a letter asking for proof of debt after several months i have received a statement of account which runs from Oct 2010 to may 2014. The final balance on the account shows £400 not £600 with the last payment in Jan 2014.

  12. Hi All, I have been contacted by a company called Cohen Cramer regarding an alledged debt for a mobile phone bill with Orange back from 2013. I do not recall having a mobile phone from that period, although I did have a mobile internet dongle thing which I believe was on a one month rolling contract. I really wanted to know what I should send them in order to find out more information. I am aware that mobile phone contracts are not covered by the CCA, so is there a template for a letter I can send, and also what documentation will they legally need to be in possessio
  13. I've been contacted all of a sudden after a 5yr gap of silence regarding a Barclayard they believe was mine, from my calculation it would be a few months off 6 yrs since this would be defaulted on. First letters were to say it had been transferred to Robinson Way and was quite nicey nicey, second was to say get in touch we could wipe off a quarter of what you owe, today's was we have looked at your account and believe we have enough to go for litigation and MAY pass this to Howard Cohen and co in 10 days and then it may go to court blahdy bla ~Is this a last gasp e

Hoist still haven't responded to my requests for info, and ive not had anything back from Cohens either and the requests were sent at the end of April.
