    • Send Smart a two-line letter informing them of your new address.  It will save you from the threat of a backdoor CCJ later on.   As for DR+, just laugh at their standard letters.
    • Opened April 2015.   Got behind on payments in Sept 2017.   Vanquis contacted me to arrange repayment plan. Then received demand from Moorcrofts.   Account returned to Vanquis Case Manager October 2017.  Interest frozen but no monthly payment plan agreed as no further correspondence received.   I have had no statements since Sept 2017?   Last payment October 2017.   I have checked Experian today and states that Credit Card in Default January 2018?   I have never received any details confirming this and I am a bit concerned what to do? Will I suddenly get something from them threatening legal / Court action?   Do I contact Vanquis or hang fire ?   Any advice would be appreciated.       
    • So bit of an update   Below is email sent to BT. The issue is now not the money but the impact on them reporting to credit references unpaid since Feb This was not showing on credit karma or experian,  who he has been with for a while,  but checked clear score tonight and it is on there as missed payments. I can honestly say they had no communication from BT.      Please accept this as a formal complaint in regards to my account. I expect a quick response considering the impact this has caused.   I have been a customer with BT for a while. I upgraded my broadband around November 2020 time. At no point was I informed that there was an unpaid balance on my account.  My services were recently stopped and I called to determine the issue.    I was informed that no payment to my account had been made since February 2019,  and the balance was £800. You can imagine my shock   I have had no service restrictions, no correspondence, no telephone calls or emails to alert me to an unpaid balance.    When I called I had to pay £380 to get my services reinstated. At the time I felt I had no choice as a self employed worker who needed the Internet for work. I also experienced poor communication and had to call several times for money to be taken   Tonight I have checked credit report and BT have reported missed payments since Feb 2019 which has had an adverse impact on my credit, when everything else is up to date. This will impact on my business and ability to secure credit and I want this resolved as soon as possible.    If this is not resolved to my satisfaction, with compensation for the distress this has caused me,   you can be assured I will take this to the ombudsman.

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!
