  1. My partner finally decided to claim her Capital One credit card PPI. The card was issued in 2003 which was more or less when PPI was introduced I believe with a avg credit amount of £500. About 2 weeks ago she made a the claim using the Capital one/resolver online application. The original card application was completed on the phone and her complained was it was not fully explained to her what PPI was and why she should be accepting. Within a week she received a reply stating she was not eligible fr a PPI due to the following reason: aged 16-64 Employed and paying class 1 NAT INS Living in UK Based on the above we are confident the PPI was not mis-sold !!! They confirm it was sold on a telephone application which they do not have the recording ! How is this confirming that it was not mis-sold ? They have however agreed to just over £1200 as a result of redress scheme which was introduced in 2014 re a high commission rate which is unfair to the consumer under the CCA 1974. Not sure how to work out the PPI as not much statements are available. Given the above info, what would be the best course of action? Thanks in advance

  3. Hi Has anybody heard of Alev Uk secured credit ltd. Can’t find a great deal about them. It’s regarding a shortfall on the mortgage after a repossession. Never had a mortgage with them, I’m presume they have bought an old debt. We have never had contact with the lender since repossession 10 years ago! Any help would be appreciated.

Please can I ask if the 6 year timescale is from when the Debt started in 2010 or when the £1 contributions ended? Your help and advice would be hugely appreciated again with these Court Papers
  5. Hello! Cannot believe I've only just found this website! I realise there's many threads but none quite about my stage... My debt is a $12k Aus Credit Card from last year. They emailed and I ignored then they called my work relentlessly until I was taken into a HR meeting about it. They also called two people from my Instagram (one I didn't even know personally). I've since privatised all my social media. I emailed them a massive complaint detailing every ACCC breach and gave them my email and number. They replied to my complaint last week addressing only the point about pretending to be someone else saying that they never. No other points addressed. Then I received a call stating I need to pay, it's not going away etc. I told them I was at the brink of losing my job and I simply can't afford to pay it all ($12k) because I'm a student working part time. They've then emailed me an income and expenditure form and requested my HR letters and 3 months bank statements. They are going to call next week to catch up. I'm going to ASIC about my complaint not being addressed properly but I'm not sure what to do in the meantime about the agent calling me next week wanting all my info? I realise now from reading this I shouldn't acknowledge it but i simply had to due to work. I have no idea what I can/should do??
  6. Good afternoon, In a nut shell. Opened a BC CC in Mar 2003. Missed a few payments which meant that i incurred Over Credit limit charges. Over the course of the next 14 years, it escalated. Despite missing payments and over credit limit charges, BC doubled my credit limit on 3 occasions, June 2009, March 2011 and March 2014. Leading to more financial trouble for myself which was impossible to get away from at the time. Finally got back on track in 2018 and managed to clear the balance, but still incurring interest and some charges. Prior to each limit increase, my record with them was nothing short of abysmal, missed payments, over credit limit, when i did pay i was rarely over the miniumum payment. 38 missed payments and 48 over credit limit from 2009. My question is, do i have a claim against BC for irresponsible lending? Regards G
  7. Afternoon all, I’ve received a ‘formal debt recovery notification’ letter from some outfit called Credit Limits International (CLI), asking me to make payment for a debt owed to the ‘Corpo Di Polizia Municipale Di Firenze’, with regards to the Italian Highway Code. I’m unsure as to what the debt is for - I’ve not received any notice prior to this. It does, however, have a ‘Car reference’ that appears to be a number plate. All I can think of is that my wife and I hired a car during the summer of 2015 - when we got married (!) - in Florence, and perhaps it refers to that (the car was returned to the car hire company without an issue, so I can only surmise I must have committed a speed or driving offence without realising). This is the first time I’ve received a debt collection letter and I’m unsure what to do next. If there was a genuine offence then, as annoying as that is, fair enough - but I’m a tad peeved my first notice is a letter that mentions an ‘enforceable order’ in Italy and ‘prosecution in this country’, plus asks me to cover payment of several high costs - not just the ‘infraction amount’, but also interest, legal and collection costs, bringing the total to almost £400. Any next steps would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
  8. Is there any advice anyone can offer on Pension credit. My sisters situation is she has been advised to apply for pension credit and a little help with her mortgage. The problem is she is a "mortgage prisoner" and cannot afford to sell her house, it needs a lot of repairs, and cannot get a cheaper deal. She has been working until recently, she is age 69, but if she did receive pension credit it would not cover all of her mortgage, even with the amount she would receive from the Government. Her son is helping her at the moment and will carry on doing so until she can eventually sell the house, then she plans to repay him the loan. My question is would they allow her to do this or would any money, lent to her by her son be counted as income. If you are not able to advise could you tell me where I could find this out for her. Thank you.
  9. Hello, I have three defaults on my credit report. Do they ever expire? I keep paying £1.00 to my creditors every month but since my credit score is bad and defaults are shown to lenders I have no hope to get work or start a business. Is there any hope to get those defaults moved from my credit report? All the debts are more than six years old.
  10. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this on so Mods, please feel free to move. I lost my permanent job late in 2016. Being older (almost 60 at the time), I've found, like many others in my age group that it's almost impossible to find a job. I was asked at the Jobcentre if there was anything I could do to become self-employed. I am a good pianist and had been working towards getting my Diploma after an exam break of 40 years, thinking ahead to when I retire. I am one of the women caught in the 50s trap, no husband and a son who's still recovering from a recent kidney transplant. Life is not easy for us Anyway, I got approval from the NEA to start a teaching business. To date I have not had a lot of interest despite advertising, my website, leafleting doors and anywhere else I can push my business. Just two adult students since I launched on 3rd January 2018 and I didn't get them until October. It seems the NEA and the Jobcentre don't communicate very well. The Jobcentre has taken my start up day from the 18th November 2017. The NEA says I started trading on the 3rd January 2018 which is the date I launched the website and my business. I now get £0 in Universal Credit, the reason being they are using the Minimum Income Floor of £1092 per month which is based on best case scenario estimation. I thought, fine, I don't get a penny from them but what I didn't get told is that my rent (council) wouldn't be paid either. This MIF is a hypothetical figure. Even from when I put in the business plan I have had to drop my prices to £10 for half hour and £19 for a full hour. This week I will earn £10 as one of my students can't come for personal reasons. You can imagine my shock to find out the last payment the council received was on the 11th December 2018. I am now in serious danger of losing my home and my son and myself being thrown out into the street. I am 62 years old and my son is, as said earlier, still recovering from a kidney transplant which has not gone particularly smoothly. I am really at my wits end. Something I thought would put us on the path to a better and more stable future has turned into a nightmare and I've done nothing wrong. I was given a hard choice by the Jobcentre. Either give up my business which I've worked hard to promote and prove I've done that (how do you kill a website - I've already paid for the website and domain for a year, that doesn't end until December this year) and let down my two students, one of whom is very good and practising for her Grade 1 exam later this year or claim UC and completely kill the business. Not knowing that my rent was not going to be paid, I chose to keep on my business as I know it is the type of thing that will take time to build. A year (in my case less) is not a long time. The Jobcentre has now closed my UC claim but I have until May to reinstate it. I have gone without, don't go out or do things other people do. I have been trying to get a job, either part or full time to help things out but get turned down constantly, usually by the agencies who come up with one excuse or another not to put me forward for jobs, the latest excuse being I haven't worked in an office for a year! 45 years experience as a secretary, often working at Managing Director level doesn't count. I met last week with a representative from the NEA who didn't really seem to know why the MIF is playing such a big part in this or even why it's stopping me getting UC to top up my earnings. One can work 16 hours without losing UC or if working 30 hours, similar to the old Working Tax Credits which even applies to self-employed people. These are the people promoting this ghastly scheme and if they don't know how are the rest of us supposed to know? I spoke with the benefits office (their call centre in Scotland) on Friday. Lady there said I would have to get a Mandatory Reconsideration but that could take weeks and may not even be successful. I just tried to reinstate the UC claim - supposedly a one click operation. No, it isn't. Question upon question regarding employment if you work for a employer but absolutely nothing related to being self-employed (I have not completed these questions as they were ambiguous). The Jobcentre advisor I had (or have) is a very nice person but came across as not knowing that much about the NEA scheme (which is run by Pinnacle People). I feel I have been lied to and misled and I'm sure I'm not the only one. From what I've gathered so far, it would seem that if I had started up my piano business on my own, without the NEA scheme I could have declared it to the Jobcentre as casual earnings and they would have simply deducted what I earned from my UC payment. Why there is such a difference between this and being self-employed via the NEA Scheme just doesn't make sense. I hope someone sees this or knows of someone who has gone through this that can point me in the right direction. I'm sorry this post is so long but I really am at my wits end to the point it's making me quite ill.
  11. Hi Everyone, Tricky situation, but I'm hoping for some guidance, found a few bits of info on here. Unfortunately my father passed away last summer. I am joint executor (with my sister who lives overseas). Here's the background but unfortunately I don't have much paperwork - He had a small bungalow worth £225k but also a £162,500 mortgage. This was sold by GE money to him, aged 70, for 14 years (In 2004) - interest only. He wasn't great with money(his whole life tbh) and soon fell into arrears. In 2006 it was sold on to Engage Credit. We are about to finally complete on the sale, and once all his other debts are cleared there's not going to be much left. We have managed to get Engage to refund £320 in fees. We're trying to establish when GE sold it on. Engage say most of the fees were GE money. There are £3554.30 in fees, plus £2703.72 in arrears. I do have comprehensive list of the fees/arrears dating back to 2006, but its hard to see who charged what, and when it was transferred. I'm so angry with companies like these who mis sell to elderly people who clearly can't afford the repayments, and my Dad was v clever hiding the full extent of the debt from us. My questions are: 1 - Can I do anything as an Executor as the whole thing is so unfair? 2 - Why the mortgage for such a large amount was sold to a 70Yr old - as the house can't have been worth anywhere near that in 2004 - I think it must have been mis sold (He only had a state pension) 3 - How can I trace who sold the mortgage? Can I report them to the FCA?[/left] 4 - Can I claim back fees retrospectively from GE Money (I've read the 2010 ruling on here) or doesn't it apply if the mortgage holder is no longer alive? With many thanks and best wishes, Caroline
  12. Please can you guys advise me what I can do. The Third party insurance making it very difficult and seem like they are looking for ways not to pay. If this is the case I will be liable for the costs, which would set me back in life. Background 1.I had a collision, and claimed for the damage to my car personal injury. (it was non-fault but the Third party claimed 50/50). The case went one. 2. Third Party gave me a cheque for half on non-prejudice basis. The day they sent this, My solicitor took the hire car back from me. 3. Cheques take some time to clear, However I saw a car I liked. I asked for a loan from my cousin, on the basis that I pay him back when the cheque clears. (he previously said no, as I had nothing to pay him back. A few months down the line my solicitor called me. They cant get a better offer than 50/50. Its his word against mine. I asked what will happen to the hire car fees. They said you will get half. The other half will be written off by the hire company. I agreed. I thought everything was done,. but 7 weeks later... Issues 1. Third party wants proof I brought a car (I give them insurance documents) 2. Third party checks my bank statements. They ask were is the transaction for the car. (The car was brought cash in hand, I gave them proof of the bank transactions of my cousin loaning me money, plus screen shots from his bank. And screen shot that he paid my insurance money. 3. Third party gets in touch again. Where is the cheque we gave you and why did you not borrow money earlier. (I sent a screen shot of the cheque in my bank and said no one wanted to give me a loan) but once the cheque was posted I had people willing to loan me money as I had means to pay them back. not heard anything back yet. Questions Why are they making it so hard? I just want this to over. My life has been put on hold. Because I am afraid of what may happen if they refuse to pay. I seen many posters around about the same situations, but never the final result. I just don't want to keep prolonging this. I have provided enough evidence to show the need for a hire car, plus they have my bank statements they know my financial situation. what more do you think they can ask?
  13. name the issuing court: Kirkcaldy Who Is The Claimant: Cabot Financial (UK) Limited, Marlin House, 16-22 Grafton Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 1QP Who Are the Solicitors: Simon Nolan (Nolan’s Solicitors) What type of action? : Simple What is the claim for – 1. on 21/09/2015 the Respondent entered a credit card agreement with NEW DAY LTD under which the respondent borrowed from them a sum of money repayable on demand.

So agreement not required.) 4. Denial of Agreement – Copy agreement dated 21/09/2015 N.B Generic rule 8 order should never be issued. The facts of each individual case must be considered. It should never be appropriate to have to plead such as assignations or default notices until/unless specific defences are led. The salient feature of assignation is that it does not require the consent of the defender and the averments in this form are sufficient to confirm intimation. Default notices should never be plead due to Omnia Praesumunter Rite Acta Esse (trustees of the Scottish Solicitors Staff Pension Fund v Pattison & Sim, CISH 96 and Trayners Latin Maxims, p419 420) The claim is for a credit card from Aqua BOX D5 what has the claimant stated: The claimants request that the court order the respondent to pay the sum of £3079.52 When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007?

Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? - Not that I have noticed When was you last payment:- 23 June 2017 Why did you cease payments:- I could not afford the payments, I lost a lot of work and my income went down so low that I was unable to keep up the payments. Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? NO, but I dispute the amount I am being pursued for on the basis that my credit limit was only £1500 yet they want £3079 Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan ? Yes, I offered to pay £10 a week and although they did not formally agree I continued to pay the £10 until June when I simply could not afford it. I have been served with this Form 6A, the simple procedure for notice of claim from Cabot regarding an Aqua Credit Card I had. I have no idea what to do as I am owe money but not £3092, my credit limit was only £1500! Can anyone advise? I only have a few days to respond and dont know whether to ask for time to pay (I have very little to spare, if anything due to my current financial circumstances) or to dispute the claim and stating the reason as being the amount is in dispute... I have filled out the parts requested to the best of my abilities any help is appreciated, i did not realise the date to respond is 4 days from now so im a bit panicky.
  14. Just looking for some advice, recently I asked my work coach at my Job Centre if the worst comes and I do face a sanction in the future while I am on Universal Credit, will my housing element be affected as well, and he said yes, is this true? I thought housing element won't be affected while on a sanction, or his he wrong? I just hope I don't end up on UC for too long, I am aiming to get into work ASAP.
  15. Hi, i took out an mbna card in around 2002 (unsure of exact year) i was made redundant and ran up debts, on returning to employment i started to pay them off for many years, however the interest rates kept going up and eventually (aug 2012) i just stopped paying completely, initially i intended to enter into a debt arrangement scheme but mental health issues and anxiety/stress meant i just started to ignore it! I have ignored this situation for almost 5 years Recently found out that after 5 years its unenforceable. ive been praying that it would get to that point to relieve this stress Balance is sitting at around £8.5k I have always had PPI on this card I phoned broadies on receipt of the letter to request a CCA which they said they'd send. I have not received anything, does anyone have any advice, ive no idea what to do next? im scared they dont send any on for because it was done via phone, should i email them? just checked and my first month of not paying was august 2012, last recorded payment was july 2012
  16. I recently went on Nat West website to inquire about a loan, I progressed it but decided not to go any further as the interest rate was too high so I didn't apply for credit. I then discovered that Nat West had placed a hard search on my file for a credit application. I disputed this with Equifax as I had not made the application, they told me to take it up with Nat West who then told me that is how they do things. surely this isnt right or is it? any guidance would be appreciated.
  17. Hi, I had an agreement with MBNA where they would hold all interest, as long as I paid the debt off within 10 years. The amount owing was divided up in 120 months (10 years). However, in the mean time, they have decided to sell the debt, at the same time as our financial situation has changed. The monthly payments are now less. They write to inform me that I am in arrears. The DCA have said the following, is this right does anyone know?? The payment was set by MBNA, based upon, I assume a previous Income and Expenditure form at the point of being 'charged off' which means no further interest is applied to your account but it does mean that this is your 'normal monthly payment'. This can not be amended now as it was sold on this way. It is also less than the 5% normally applied to credit card accounts. And so, we are happy to accept your offer of payment but as it is does not meet your contractual payment the arrears will continue to accrue. We have a legal obligation to reflect accurate data to the Credit Reference Agencies, which also includes arrangements, missed payments and arrears and so your data entry at the credit reference agency will be updated with this information.
  18. Hi All Tesco Credit Card taken out in 2004 and got into difficulties 2007/08 Been gradually repaying debt since then Last 4 years been paying £50/month Current balance circa £2,500 Went through I&E with Tesco in January and agreed £50/month for next 12 months Tesco letter and Intrum letter came together in one envelope from Intrum last week Per Noddle, Intrum have done a search Tesco letter says: "If you have an active repayment plan in place, and your circumstances haven't changed, you can continue to pay off your balance as you are now, but paying Intrum UK Finance Limited instead of us. You will need to take action and update you payment details to redirect your payments to Intrum UK Finance Limited." Intrum letter says: "We understand that you've already agreed a repayment plan with Tesco Personal Finance Plc. We want you to continue this agreement with us so we ask you contact us in the next 30 days to make arrangements to do this. If it's affordable we're happy to accept the same arrangement you had with Tesco Personal Finance Plc." What propose doing is pay £50/month to Intrum for next 4 years until debt is paid off. What I don't propose doing is communicate with Intrum. Question - can Intrum force me to go through I&E or any other form of communication with them? I'd appreciate any advice on how I should proceed.

  20. Hi Guys In November, I applied for a post office credit card and was declined despite having near perfect scores with Experian and Equifax. I used an eligibility checker first and it showed that I had a 95% chance of being approved so I felt confident to apply. However, while filling out the application form I did notice that there were no fields to enter information as a self-employed person but I proceeded anyway by entering info about my self-employed status so it may be that they only approve those that are employed. I received a letter from them confirming the decline but they didn't give a reason. It said that they used Experian. For several years I have had an Aqua card and they have increased my credit limit quite substantially. Over the last 6 months they have sent me a letter every month encouraging me to apply for a loan for up to £5,000 using the loan code they sent. I want to apply for a loan because the rate is 3X lower than their credit card rate. However, I'm concerned about my credit score being negatively affected again I wonder if someone could tell me how much time I should allow before applying for credit/loan again. Your advice would be appreciated.
  21. Hi I purchased a cctv from Maplin about 8 months ago using my Santander c/card, I closed the account about 6 weeks ago and now the cctv system is broken, Maplin have liquidated of course so I ask.... Can I still claim a refund on my old card? Thanks
  22. Hi, I have received a letter from Lantern requesting payment for loans I took out years ago. The loans do not appear on my credit file and have not been on my credit file for at least the last two to three years. I think I defaulted on most of them six years ago that's why they are not on my credit record. Lantern have called me on my work mobile number once recently, ( within the last two weeks) and I refused to answer security questions because I was not sure who I was speaking to. But they did say they where formerly MMF. I do not wish to engage with Lantern, what steps do I take to ensure I pay them or not Thanks in advance.

Financial difficulties What was the date of your last payment? 04/12/2012 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 management plan? No I'll be sending a CCA and a CPR31.14 request off tomorrow. I was planning a defence based upon SB but with the last payment being 04/12/2012 I don't think that will stick as the COA date doesn't seem to be the last payment date any longer? 2012/13 was a really bad 12 months financially and personally and Lowell have been harassing me for every defaulted debt from this period for a long time. Lowell already have 3 CCJ's on my file, for 2 of them they placed a charge on my property. These were paid when I moved house at the start of 2018. I don't want a new CCJ and I hate the thought of having to pay these guys a single penny more. Any and all help gratefully received
  24. Hi all, On my Noddle Credit File, I have an entry from Wonga.com. with an opening balance of £704 in 2014. I have never ever used Wonga. It does say Settled, but not without some adverse credit scoring Apr - UC, Jul - 1, Aug - 2, Sep - 3, Oct - 4, Nov - 5, Dec UC. What is this, where has it come from. I haven't made any payments to them ever. Is this still affecting my credit file? Thanks
  25. I am looking for some advice regarding removal of Arrangement to Pay markers and a default from my credit report. I have an outstanding balance of £3486.90 with Link Financial who took on the account from Barclaycard in February 2015. Barclaycard applied markers to my credit report from April 11 to February 15 when they marked the account as settled, following an SAR it doesn't appear the account was ever formally defaulted. I was on a DMP until recently when I sent a section 78 request to Link and stopped paying. They did not comply with the request and subsequently issued a default notice. There is a note within the documents received following the SAR request that would indicate that the debt is unenforceable. I am looking to obtain a mortgage in the summer and these two accounts will prevent me from doing so. Should Barclays have defaulted me when I missed 3 month payments? Can Link default me as they aren't the original creditor? Should the debt be removed from my credit file as it's over 6 years old since I breached the original T & C's? How do I go about remedying this? Thanks.
