    • yea so, in my case they went after my employer. Then stopped going after my employer and started going after me instead as they suspected me. I did not have the option of not replying as my employer replied and prompted me to reply.    I am not sure what the typical settlement demands are for the software package you being accused of using.    In my case they wanted me to either buy solid works premium with 1 year subscription which is like 11k USD. Even though I am being accused of using the basic package worth like 4k or 5.8k with subscription taxes etc.  The other settlement option they offered was for 5k with no software.    You should look up your countries court case filing data base to try and understand how litigious they are. How many case they have filed for similar infringements. The profiles of the accused company's and how those cases ended.     In my case Dassault systems had about 6 similar case filings in the past 3 years for all of the USA.    Based on my estimates it seems they are going after offenders enmasse and that the 6 cases represent a small percentage of total potential infringement cases. As solid works is a wildly popular software used by many. Just about any collage engineering student has a pirated copy of this.    So these were all factors I used in my decision to bounce black ignore.    You are dealing with ANSYS and so it is worth trying to understand thy enemy and try to understand their business model in pursuit of these cases.   For example the music industry wasted billions of $ with bit torrent law suits to try and make an example of ppl with the goal of scaring the masses to comply.   This was not Dassaults business model. Other then the 6 cases they filed (perhaps to make an example out of ppl) they seem to want to shake ppl down for easy license sales and settlement penalty fees.                 
    • Well it would be preferable that the seller took responsibility for it, but you already seem to be saying that you are not getting any replies from that person. You do have your own direct rights of action against Hermes under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. If you read around this sub- forum about Hermes delivery problems, you will find a lot written about it and you will understand. You say that it wasn't really discussed whether or not to go through the sales site checkout system – but it must have been surely. Somebody must have decided to do the deal directly. As I suggested, you could pursue Hermes but the evidence you have is very scant and I don't really fancy your chances. I think you haven't protected yourself properly – and the real problem is that the tracking number doesn't relate to your address. Generally speaking with these problems, you would have a tracking number that relates to your address and that it hasn't been delivered. Here we seem to have a tracking number the relates to a different address and apparently it has been delivered to that address. This makes it all sound very suspiciously like a scam and anyway, if you try to bring a claim against Hermes you would have to show that it was addressed to your own address – and you can't do this. Unless you can get some better evidence and get some cooperation from the seller, I think that you are probably going to have to suffer the loss. I'm very sorry about this – if you had checked out correctly and also if you had paid by credit card or by debit card then you probably could have gotten your money back. In fact it seems that all the normal methods of protection have been completely sidelined – and from the sounds of it, they were sidelined at the instigation of the seller. I don't know how you're going to ascertain if the seller is really at the address they gave you. That would be my starting point. I think you should make a couple of more tries to contact the seller – and I would keep it very gentle and very polite and not express any suspicion in them because otherwise they will simply close up and you will get an aggressive response or no response at all. If you try very gently and politely, you might eventually manage to coax a response. The other thing you could do is you can search the land registry register for that address and see who owns that property. Of course if they are simply renting the property then it won't give you any clues. I suppose it is more likely than not that they are renting the property – but you never know if it is not a false address then maybe their parents live there. This might give you something to go on
    • Hi, would appreciate advice on how to take this forward.   On 13/11/20 I ordered a TV and wall bracket from Currys. This was paid for with a re-loadable Currys gift card.The TV bracket was to be delivered on 17/11/20 but DPD turned up with a Coffee Machine. I refused delivery and they took back and this has been returned to Currys. I have contacted Currys via both their webchat and phone on 18/11/20, 25/11/20 & today (28/11/20) to ask they send the correct item out. I was told on the first call on 18/11/20 a exchange would be processed to get the TV bracket sent out. I heard nothing and I did a webchat on 25/11/20 where they said the incorrect item had been received back but the relevant dept hadn't processed the return so the exchange couldn't be actioned. They said they would escalate and to give them 48 hours. Having heard nothing I called again today and again they said they would contact the dept but I'm really feeling I'm getting the runaround. I would prefer to get them to send the correct item but this is dragging on and I'm getting weary of it all and I'm almost at the stage of asking them to just refund and getting the bracket elsewhere. The TV arrived ok but I cannot set up due to the non delivery of the bracket. Would appreciate any advice you guys have as to getting resolved. I live in Glasgow. Many thanks.
    • any penalties are unlawful. deal if you must with solidworks directly. trust me they wont know a thing about your present use of it   there is no evidence here CJCH do nor can do..anything  only the owner of the software can enforce licensing and they are not even in the UK.

I too was in the same situation as you before I found CAG. I'm so glad you found this site as it will change your life for the better, I promise you :)

 

You have all the support in the world on here from genuine caring people who have gone through this kind of stuff themselves.

 

There IS a light at the end of the tunnel; its important to take small steps towards it but not try to rush, as it takes time to sort these things out but they CAN all be sorted out.

 

I'm subscribing to your thread to offer you all the support I can muster. You've had such great advice so far from the others but I just wanted you to know that someone else understands and cares how you feel.

Hi Babyhollie.

 

I would suggest you do an income and expenditure sheet as you seem to be making quite high payments to your unsecured debts eg credit cards. You should only pay what you can afford AFTER your mortgage, utility bills and essentials such as food.

 

For credit cards and loans manged by a DCA eg Moorcroft, that haven't got a CCJ attached i would send a CCA - Consumer Crdit Agreement request. This will confirm the company has a legal entitlement to collect a debt from you.

 

Have you had charges applied to any of these accounts? If yes, it could be worth reclaiming them.

 

There's lots of info here, take it one step at a time and post your questions as they come. I will look for some links for you for templates ;)

I'm midway through the tunnel, but getting closer to the light.

Hi BabyHollie, good to note you're sounding much more positive! :)

Moorcroft and the other DCAs have been taking advantage of you, by the look of things. Gits. :mad:

You must sort out your budget now.

National Debtline's online forms will help a lot. This is the England/Wales link:

National Debtline England & Wales | Personal Budget Sheet

As everyone's saying, you have priority debts (like mortgage, utilities etc), then you need to live - so all your housekeeping etc. Once you've gone through a budget you'll see things much more clearly.

Keep up the good work - you're under huge stress but you really can get control of this side of your life, with lots of help on offer as well! :) xx

Good luck with everything BabyHollie. The most important thing is your daughter, and your health, - that puts everything else into perspective. I suggest maybe you go to see your local Citizens Advice Bureau, as they are trained to help with Income/Expenditure forms etc, or contact an organisation like PayPlan who will offer free advice, and then take over the negotiations with your creditors etc. In my own experience, I found that most of my creditors were fine dealing with PayPlan, because they saw that I was genuinely trying to do something to help my debt situation, and the Income/Expenditure forms really show them that you have no further money and at least they are getting something back. Just make sure you keep up the mortgage so you and your family have a roof over your heads. Take care.

Hiya BabyHollie

 

You have had some terrific advice on here so far, and hopefully you will feel much much better now. I just wanted to endorse what Hopeful1 has said. It does seem that you are making very large payments against your unsecured debts.

 

Your living essentials come first. Once an Income & Expenditure form is drawn up with the help of the Citizens Advice Bureau or National Debtline, then you will see that there is a "remainder" left after all your essentials are covered, and that remainder gets split between all your unsecured creditors. This means you will have enough to live on without having to struggle due to paying such high debt repayments.

 

Its surprising what is included in your essential expenses too, things which its easy to forget about such as travel, school dinner money, TV licence, etc., little things which make a BIG difference when worked out. This is where the CAB or National Debtline can help as their forms cover every expense needed for every day living.

 

As Rosie has said, you and your daughter's health is most important and its very important the pressure is taken off you about finances.

 

Let us know how you get on, and if you need anything you only have to ask OK?

 

(((hugs))) :)

Just make sure to tell them all that you cannot afford to pay due to your circumstances and ask them if they will write off your debts but make to agree not to pay more than £1.00 per month when you send them you budget sheet and leave yourself enough to live on.

 

When these DCA's get your income and outgoings expenditures they will see that you cannot afford to pay them and hopefully they will write off your debts, and hope they will see that they cannot get blood from a stone but they will keep trying no doubt so be strong for your family.;)

 

Good Luck :-|

Hi there thanks again for everything... by the way if i type funny I am dyslexic and type too qick for my brian. I am going to do an income and expenditure and think I can cope myself or am I best using the site the payplan. I do have degee belive it or not lol.

I have downloaded the online debt spreadsheet for income and expenditure.. Can I just ask sombody some where said they do not count DlA is this correct do you know.

I also do have charges with all of these accounts can I claim these back perhaps or not? I could perhaps go down the lines where I am with the Abbey as regards their charges under the a hardship caseas honestly although I look to have money coming in on paper I have not got as keep getting charges all the time due to poor cash flow.

Thanks

1. ARGOS CARD SERVICES

BALANCE: £982.52

PAYING £70 PER MONTH

BEING DEALT WITHMOORCROFT DEBT RECOVERY

 

CCA to Moorcroft by rec. delivery, enclosing a Postal Order for £1. Do not sign the CCA request... just print a "signature" Even if they have an Agreement (which I doubt) £70 a month is way to high on your income.

 

 

2. LAURA ASHLEY

BALANCE £367.93- THIS HAS A CCJ AND APPRANTLY I HAVE NOT BEEN KEEPING UP WITH HENCE THE DEBT COLLECTER CAME AND MY MUM HAS PAID HIM £122 AND HE HAS SAID RING THEM BACK UP AND WILL GET IT REDUCED TO JUST £10 PER MONTH Sounds like bowlarks to me... You need to get a form N245 to submit to the court in order to get these payments reduced to an affordable level. Don't rely on this muppet to do it for you,'coz he won't.

http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/c.../n245_0204.pdf

AS I HAVE A MOTHERCARE ACCOUNT TOO WITH THEM AND THAT IS WHAT THEY SAY. I RANG THEM THIS MORNING. If the Mothercare account has no CCJ, then CCA this one, but PLEASE do not have any more dealings with these people over the 'phone. They will say anything in order to get money from you and are not to be trusted.

 

 

3. HALIFAX VISA CARD

BALANCE £1944.15

STILL WITH THE HALIFAX AND AM PAYING £56.48 PER MONTH

As this is still with Halifax, leave this one for now and focus on the ones with debt collectors. Having said that, you could write to them stating that you can no longer afford to maintain the present monthly payments and will have to reduce these down to.... somewhere between £1 - £10.... due to being in receipt of Benefit income. Do you know if they've frozen all interest/charges on this account ? You can send a S.A.R - (Subject Access Request)/CCA at a later date.... but focus on the accounts with DCAs first.

 

 

4. LITTLE WOODS- STILL WITH THEM AND I AM PAYING THEM £100 AMONTH AND OWE A MIN PAYMENT OF £300 I HAVE SPOKE TO THEM A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGAO AND HAVE SAID £100 IS THE MIN I CAN PAY THEM.

 

More bowlarks... sorry ! The minimum amount is all that you can genuinely afford to pay... not what they tell you needs to be paid. Once again, no more dealings over the 'phone.... write and offer between £1 - £10 per month. If they 'phone you, then hang up.

 

You can send a S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) to re-claim charges at a later date, once the DCAs have been sorted out. You are also within your rights to send CCAs to both of the above instead, but since they are still with the original creditors, I've left this option for now. Don't worry about them though. :)

 

 

5. MARKS AND SPENCER FINACIAL SERVICES RE THEIR CHARGE CARD

BALANCE £740.00

THIS IS WITH MOORCROFTS AND THEY HAVE SAID I HAVE TO PAY A MIN OF £120 PER MONTH?

 

Bowlarks :rolleyes: .... CCA Moorcroft, rec. delivery as above.

 

 

6. NEXT DIRECTORT Y

BALANCE £ 1050.41

THIS SI WITH IQOR DEBT RECOVERY AND PAYING THEM AT THE MOMENT £50 PER MONTH

 

CCA them as above...

 

 

7. BANK OVERDRAFT WITH TEH HALIFAX

BALANCE £555

HAVE ARRNAGED TO PAY THEM £100 A MONTH AND HAVE STOOK TO THIS AMOUNT IT IS STILL WITH THEM ALSO.

 

You can write to have this reduced as well. CCAs are a bit iffy where overdrafts are concerned, but it does no harm to send one because there is a credit facility involved.... May be interesting to see how they respond.

 

 

8. MORTGAGE WITH EVERSHEDS MY NORMAL AMOUNT IS £797 AND HAVE TO PAY AN EXTRA £150 PER MONTH HENCE £950 PAYING OUT

 

Keep to this one.... it's a priority debt.

 

 

9. CAR LOAN ALL UP TO DATE AND HAVE TO PAY £233 PER MONTH AND HAVE THIS ON DIRECT DEBIT WITH THEM THIS IS WITH BLACK HORSE FINACE

 

Keep to this one as well....

 

 

10. CIT CARDS VISA CARD

BALANCE £780

THIS IS WITH CABOT FINACE AND I HAVE BEEN PAYING£10 PER MONTHS

 

CCA Cabot, rec. delivery, as above....

 

 

11. LOAN WITH HALIFAX THIS IS WITH EVERSHEDS AND THEY HAVE JUST SENT ME AN INCOME AND EXPENDITURE TO FILL IN AND RETURN TO THEM TO SEE HOW MUCH I CAN AFFORD TO PAY BACK TO THEM. I OWE THEM ABOUT £8000 OFF MY HEAD MAYBE A LITLE LESS

 

Don't bother with the income/expenditure form.... CCA them instead, by rec. delivery, as above.

 

 

12. IKEA BALANCE

BALANCE £650

THE ACCOUNT IS WITH COURTLINK DEBT COLLECTERS

I AM PAYING THEM £75 A MONTH

 

CCA them, by rec. delivery, as above.

 

 

13. MOTHERCARE ACOUNT

P[AYING £10 PER MONTH

THIS IS WITH HOWARD COWEN AND THERE IS A CCJ ON THIS ACCOUNT TOO

 

Keep to this one then....

 

 

GOSH I AM IN ALOT OF DEBT AREN'T I????

 

I HAVE KEPT UP PAYING EVERYTHING FOR THE LAST 4 MONTHS OTHER THAN THE LAURA ASHLEY ONE WHERE I PAID £122 TO THE DEBT COLLECTER AND TODAY HAVE SPOKEN TO HOWARD SOHEN AND THEY ARE GOING TO REDUCE THE MONTHLY AMOUNT I HAVE TO PAY THEM DOWN TO £10

 

Are you sure this is on a CCJ ?... or have Howard Cohen just said it is. Do not have any more dealings with anyone over the 'phone any more. Leave this one for now.... You'll need to ask for evidence of the CCJ, but you have enough on your plate for now and it's a small amount compared with the rest.

 

 

All my gas, electric, poll tax, cart loan and the mortgage is up to date. That's great.... please keep it that way. :)

 

 

 

:)

 

Sorry for bamboozling you with info. Hollie.... it's a lot to take in, I know. Treat each account as a separate CCA request.... meaning that even though you have several with Moorcroft, for example, they need a separate CCA request for each account, in separate envelopes and each by rec. delivery with a £1 Postal Order.

 

If you need any more help at this stage, just shout.

One again excellent advicce from priority one.

 

All those CCA's should keep you busy for a while! The most important thing is that you will be taking control of the situation which will make you feel so much better. Once you are familiar with the procedure and confident in what you are doing, the DCA's wont scare you any more.

 

Take care and keep us posted. x

Hi there,

 

Just subscribing.

 

It probably won`t make you feel any better, but when was the Argos Card taken out?

 

Mine was taken out around 4 years ago and I have been paying over £115 a month, but only this year the account was sent to Morecrap also, for collection.

 

I CCA`d them a number of months ago and only this week they replied saying they are unable to provide a Credit Agreement and have returned the account back to Argos, therefore I`m not paying anything.

 

I think the best comfort I get is knowing there are a lot more people in a worse position then me and they seem to help each other through things.

 

Regards

Hi Ya.

 

Have a look at this:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/general-debt/36790-bank-taking-your-benefits.html

 

They should not be taking your benefits in charges. You're right to look at the hardship route too.

 

As for the budget sheet, if you're happy to tackle it on your own - go for it!! If you find you are struggling you know where you can go for help.

 

:) You sound so much more positive as you are now starting to consider your game plan - that means you are taking control. I'm really pleased.

 

Don't worry about typos - we all do it. In my case just cause i'm daft :D

 

I really must go to work now! I'll be back this evening.

I'm midway through the tunnel, but getting closer to the light.

Hi again BabyHollie :)

 

Great advice from PriorityOne xx

 

Just a little tip from me; try to keep each lot of correspondence relating to each different creditor in a separate little file or folder, or even just a big envelope if you can. It makes things less confusing in the long run. I had 11 of them and found out the hard way when I got stuff mixed up and had to start sorting it out! (doesn't take much to confuse me :p ).

 

Make sure you keep all your recorded delivery slips safe too, and receipts for postal orders, as you may need to refer to them later on if anyone is disputing that they ever received your CCA request (as has happened to me recently).

 

Its important not to speak to any of them on the phone too, as the others have said, because all these DCAs do is try to bully and intimidate you over the phone into paying what you can't afford. Just say you don't discuss financial matters over the phone and replace the receiver, that way they will be forced to write to you and you'll be able to keep track easier of what they are prattling on about and deal with each letter as it arrives with the help of everyone on here.

 

Most importantly I hope you are feeling much much better now. You've got the power of the CAG behind you and its a powerful friend to have!

 

Much love to you, and your daughter too.

Love SG x

Get your car taxed and insured (far more of a priority if you really need it) and get the letters suggested off.

 

They must be laughing that they are getting you to pay this much on your income.

That's the CCA letter - you could, of course, always apply to have your debts written off - just to prepare you, it is a long and arduous process, but it might be worthwhile doing to at least buy you some breathing space. You can't do that with the CCJ, only the ones which have not been subject to judgement and if at the end of it they won't write them off, you can always then go down the CCA route.

All help is merely my opinion only - please seek legal advice if you need to as I am only qualified in SEN law.

CCA's to people collecting the debt. £1 postal order is to pay for them to provide you with a copy of your CCA. You do not need to make payment until the 12 woorking days from receipt are up if they ahve not provided you with a CCA - however, if you simply cannot afford to make payment at the moment, I personally would not make any payment (except your CCJ and priority debts).

Hiya Nicola

 

Yes you've found the right letter xx

 

I'm so very sorry to hear of all the worries you have right now, and my heart goes out to you because I do understand what its like to feel this way.

 

I don't know what the situation is in your area but in my area there is a mental health services "Crisis Team" and when I am under extreme stress and feeling very very depressed I can contact the team direct and someone will come out and see me straight away.

 

The Crisis Team offer practical advice as well as emotional advice, and I feel it would benefit you to be able to speak to someone like this right now; tell them everything that is going on, and see if they can offer you additional support and guidance.

 

You said you have a Nurse which is good, I would be tempted to give her a ring and ask her to call for a chat first of all, let her know how you are feeling.

 

With love from SG x

Please note I am not legally qualified, I am offering advice based on my own personal experience in the hope that it may be of help to others in a similar situation.
