    • Latest (available) government testing figures for 10-september-to-16-september (10 days ago)   "587,173 people were newly tested, consistent with the previous week but an increase of 30% compared to the end of August."   *** Which works out to UNDER 84,000 people a day being tested that appears to be collapsing Handcock, Dido and Sercos Trace-a-test - 30% up from only around 65,000 People tested a day at the end of August   .. for a claimed 240,000-300,000 'capacity which has and is collapsing when even a 3x increase in people being tested should be within the long and still claimed 'capacity   Given the lack of newer figures - they cant be anything to shout about eh?   So my prior estimates of around 60,000 climbing more recently to 75,000 were over estimates; but right in the ball park; and only exceeded in the last few weeks or so.   Info buried under multiple links https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-test-and-trace-england-and-coronavirus-testing-uk-statistics-10-september-to-16-september-2020/weekly-statistics-for-nhs-test-and-trace-england-and-coronavirus-testing-uk-10-september-to-16-september
    • cross posted see my post above..   oh so it's now paid off.... what does the debt summary line say...settled (forget the calendar marker section no-one bar you and the owner can see that.)
    • Yes that’s my point but they keep dismissing it saying the opposite so I don’t know how to argue back. My argument is they did and still are giving me false advice which I took and in turn put me in a worse financial situation.   I have the CCA for this and all DSAR info. This debt is now paid in full
    • from your other thread..   there is no remit in the ICO guidelines that states 3-6mts anymore, that went out the window under the revised guideline which i think happened in 2014    didn't know you were raising a complain, would have advised not too but ask nicely. then if not, the above is the way to go.   as for AP markers not being as damaging as a default, poss for the immediate short terms credit score/worthiness that might well be, but as you point too and is explained in your other thread, that AP status can remain showing on the summary of a debt for upto 12yrs even when the debt is settled , IMHO that's far more damaging in the longterm that a default that cause the whole account to vanish on it's 6th birthday.   dx

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Firstly, apologies to Mods if I have placed this piece in the wrong place! Took an unsecured loan with Nationwide Trust in 1999, then ran into financial difficulties and couldn't afford the repayments (although still working). Nationwide were massively unsympathetic, even demanding that we move money from children's savings accounts to service the debt. The loan was subsequently sold to debt collectors, and although I have paid some amounts off it over the years, it has circled around various companies - but having learn't so much from this site, I started sending the CCA request letter, which none of the DCAs ever complied with. In simple terms, the debt then 'disappeared'. Stupidly, and yes I can hear you all groaning out there, we had stayed with Nationwide as our main bankers. Then, at the beginning of December 07, our Nationwide Flexaccount was frozen. We next received a letter telling us that the account had been frozen and that the money in there would be transferred within 14 days to offset the remaining loan account debt. Obviously, I got straight in touch with Nationwide unsecured debt recovery who demanded £400 per month to reinstate the account (a figure greater than the original loan monthly instalment!), telling me this was less than many other 'agents' would demand. They wrote a short note telling me that we had an 'arrangement' and highlighting not only the amount remaining, but that they had also levied £2,199 in late charges. They have threatened legal action (as they would) if the arrangement is not adhered to. We have now changed banks, and so are clear of any further risk of the account being frozen again. But my question really relates to what sort of action they might consider - given that when our account was frozen, the loan was over 3 years past it's original payment period. Although I don't dispute the debt as such, I sense that morally Nationwide are not on the strongest ground and I feel I would be prepared to highlight that in court as well as the media. I am also minded to challenge the late fees as these seem not only excessive but randomly calculated too! In other words, I am not prepared to be screwed around by Nationwide any more, and would really be grateful for any thoughts on how to move forward with this. As a point of note, I am about to challenge the bank charges on the Flexaccount as well as an old Nationwide credit card debt (yes, we had the lot!). Many thanks from Norfolkboy.

Yeah challenge the fees, although they may have been described to you in the intitial agreements so your failiure to read up on late charges may have cost you! If they haven't told you about them, then query them. Asks them where it states that these late charges will occur.


As for further action - most likely a judgement. Little more they CAN do.

If they don't have the credit agreement, which they have already failed to produce, they can't even get a court judgement if you defend the case.


Look through the mound of paperwork you'll have been sent over the last x years, for the phrase assignment, sold etc. Is there a letter saying that the account was sold to anyone.


Subsequent to that letter, has any letter whatsoever been sent to you that the debt was sold to nationwide?


it's very important.

i will be off site for the next month or so. if you have any problems, feel free to report the post so a moderator can help you.


I am not a qualified or practicing lawyer.

Tomterm8, since the loan was started in December 1999, I can find no mention - and you're right, it is a mound of paperwork - of the wording that you mention. There are numerous letters from DCAs chasing me for money, but no mention of any assignment or the debt being sold either from, or to, Nationwide.
