Hi

I sent a cca request to mint for a copy of my agreement with them,i received the following from them and i wonder if what they sent is a true copy,is this just a application form copy,the box where they sign and date seems to have been cut and pasted on to the form and i can't read what,s dates there or who signed, also the credit amount thats there is wrong it was only around the £2,500 when first taken out.

They sent you an application form.

Also the terms and conditions on page two refer to charges of £12. Which were changed recently. But the application form is dated 2000.

The terms and conditions/key information should be the ones that would have been from 2000 and the ones that would have been with the agreement at the time.

 

They've just cobbled together a few bits to make it look like they have an enforceble agreement.

 

All the pescribed terms should be on the signature document. Nowhere does it refer to the second page.

 

So I would say it's unenforcable.

Quick update on this,i sent a letter pointing out that they seem to have sent me a application form and not what i had requested,waiting to hear back from them.I then got a letter from a dca telling me that they had been instructed to collect the alleged debt from by Rbs mint on the 14th July 2008 that was the same day the letter is dated that they sent with the info shown in photos.I sent the dca a email on Monday pointing out that the account was in dispute with Rsa Mint,they replied informing me that Rbs Mint have never informed them at anytime that the account was in dispute and have returned the account to Rbs Mint.It seems strange to me that they sent it to the dca before i received the info requested,waiting now for further developments.

Hi

Just a quick up date,i received a letter back from them stating as they have supplied a copy of the credit agreement that i signed,they also included in this letter 2 pages they say are the terms and conditions when the agreement was made,have they now fullfilled there obligation.I am still a bit suspect on what they have sent on 2 matters at least,Point one on the copy of the application form next to the box with gross annual income the other box contains figures of £10,000 these figure have not been entered by me,is this the credit card limit when i took the card out,if it is it's wrong as the limit was far less than that.Point 2 the box they have signed seems to have been copied and pasted in there,i can't make out the person who signed or the date signed

Hi, its all smoke and mirrors mate, if the last box on the app form doesnt say prescribed terms overleaf (which i cant read) then its unenforceable and can only be decided upon in court


Please note i have no legal training any advice i give comes from my own experience and from what i have learned on this site

Thanks for your reply credit,it does say prescribed terms overleaf,i still don't understand which of the 2 pages sent this refers to,i about to send a letter to them asking for clarification on 3 points on the application form sent.I thought i had read somewhere that any credit agreement before 2005 must contain the t & c within the document and not on a seperate page.Will let you know when i hear back from them.

Hi barns66

 

It's very hard to read your scanned agreement, but:

Thanks for your reply credit,it does say prescribed terms overleaf,i still don't understand which of the 2 pages sent this refers to, I agree. Very hard to see, but it looks as if there is a statement which says "I accept and agree to be bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately, and the details of the card as set out overleaf...." So where is the copy of the details overleaf? Even if they can supply the separate general conditions applicable at the time you took the card, IMHO that would not make the agreement enforceable in court, as they would actually have to be able to show what was being referred to overleaf. So it seems they would have to provide the original 2-sided document to prove their claim in court. Although they may not yet have provided you with a copy of the other side of the application, it does not mean they don't have it, or the original, so I guess you need to pressurize them into supplying a copy of the other side. :rolleyes: i about to send a letter to them asking for clarification on 3 points on the application form sent.I thought i had read somewhere that any credit agreement before 2005 must contain the t & c within the document and not on a seperate page.Will let you know when i hear back from them.

Hi Rob,thanks for your reply.

 

what does the text say to the left of the box you are referring to? The '£10,000' looks very neat and may have been filled in as an example

There is no text just £10000

 

Point 2 the box they have signed seems to have been copied and pasted in there,i can't make out the person who signed or the date signed

 

I think it as been copied and pasted as well and i can't make out who as signed it or the date it looks like 2000 but the date i can't make out.

 

"I accept and agree to be bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately, and the details of the card as set out overleaf...

 

This is the text from the declaration box.

 

I apply for an RBS Avanta Card and PIN to be issued to me .I accept and agree to be

bound by the general conditions applying to the card as set out separately amd the details

about the card as set out uverleaf both as may be amended from time to time.If i have

applied for a Gold Card and my application is not approved,I confirm that this form is

am application to be issued with your classic credit card.If requested i hereby autirise

you issue am addional RBS Avanta Card (of the same type issued to me) to the person

named for use on my RBS Advanta Card account.I confirm that my personal informationmay be used as described in the Data Protection box above.I understand that for protection of customers and RBS Advanta the information i have supplied is checked and if any substantial

differences are revealed the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance System will be informed.

Hi

 

I was just re-emphasising what had already been said in the thread regarding the details of the card as set out overleaf as without seeing them you obviously do not know what they are (and neither would the Judge :rolleyes:). Unless RBS can show what those terms were, they cannot prove anything, so you need to insist on receiving the 'other side' of the application form. ;)

 

Cheers

You've done the right thing.

 

Keep up the dispute unless they provide something that's properly enforceable.

 

They'll try any tricks to con you into paying something.

 

If you feel brave enough, invite them to take you to court and prove it there. Most of them will decline that offer. Some of them have realised that taking on a CAG member is getting a bit too expensive.

    • This is County Court Bailiffs not HCEO..there is only one fee  £110.   https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/enforce-a-judgment
    • always plead guilty and say yo will attend that way if you cant settle OOC on the day you are there in person to covey your remorse to the judge personally.   it will be more than the £225 quote with victim surcharges etc on top but that does rule out the possibility of still settling on te day by talking to the TfL prosecutor before you go in   there are various threads here that has had that happen.   if you can find them, i'll do it later
    • Along with this is a: tomlin order schedule customer account transactions summary customer account transactions listed between November 2008 and jan 2019 - the last payment being March 2017 then further items on invoice listed between November 2008 and September 2010   2019-04-18_195659.pdf
    • Just an update since I received a letter for a SJPN today... so I am being charged under "...Byelaw 17(1) of the Transport for London Railway Byelaws made under paragraph 26 of Schedule 11 to the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and confirmed under section 67 of the Transport Act 1962."   Application is being made for a £225 contribution towards the costs of TfL. Further costs may be incurred if additional documentation is required or if the matter is not resolved by a SJ.   What would peoples recommendation be, pleading guilty with or without going to court? They did put on the cover letter that if I plead guilty then "...you will usually get a 33% reduction...' But obviously it's not guaranteed since they used the word usually.   Lastly is the fine going to be the £225 they've stated in the SJPN plus the fare avoided? Or is this the cost of raising the SJPN.   Thanks      
    • Yes and I think I pointed out that the enforceability of the CCA is dependant on more than the document you posted. On its own, the agreement sites all the correct terms and is compliant with section 77. However, it also has to comply with the agreement(copy) you signed, how can anyone who as not seen that document say one way or the other. I went on to explain how it would be impossible to calculate the terms on the second agreement from the first as the first did not exist. I seem to be constantly repeating myself, and I do not see you doing anything to move this case forward.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
