You might want to pm someone like BRW, surfaceagentx20, scarlet pimpernel.. off the top of my head they are the "letter writers" that might be able to help out with this one.

 

My own reaction would be to copy the letter they sent you in post 21 and advise them to contact their legal manager on...... for a bit of their own advice.

Alternatively as they have threatened you with legal action, you could amend the following letter, should give their legal manager something else to do.

:D

 

 

I have had a look at CB's noble letter and have made a few tweaks for your consideration, as follows:

 

Dear Sir,

 

Re :

 

THIS IS A REQUEST UNDER THE CIVIL PROCEDURE RULES.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE.

 

I am in receipt of your letter dated 23rd October, this was received on 30th October 2008.

 

You have indicated that

a) You are giving Formal Notice that your client has instructed you to commence court proceedings against me without delay and

b) Papers are now being prepared for commencement of action through my local court to seek a judgement against me.

 

I am sure that you are aware that I have long since requested from your client, under both the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (The Act) and the Data Protection Act 1998, a copy of the agreement to which both you and your client allege I am a signatory. To date this has not been provided to me and whilst I appreciate your client has endeavoured to persuade me that the provision of a copy of an application form is sufficient to discharge your client from further obligations under section 78 of the Act. Likewise I too have explained that the mere provision of a copy of an application form is not a legally permissable substitute for the provision of a true copy of the executed agreement as required under section 78 of the Act and as prescribed by Regulation 3 Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices and Copies of Documents) Regulations 1983.

 

I am sure you are also aware that under section 78(6) of the Act, whilst a creditor is in default of a request made under sub-section (1) they may not enforce the agreement.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing and your client's persistent, unexplained and willful refusal to supply a copy of the executed agreement in accordance with its obligations (the permitted ommisions under Regulation 3(2) excepted), your client has made plain its intention to begin legal proceedings against me. In consequence this matter may now be treated as one which is subject to the control of the Civil Procedure Rules.

 

Take notice therefore that under CPR Practice Direction - Protocols paragraph 4.6(a) and (d), I request that you supply copies of the following documents:

 

[1] A true copy of the executed credit agreement incorporating prescribed notices, terms and conditions applicable at the time the agreement was executed and

[2] Any further or subsequent notices, terms and conditions relied upon.

 

Please note that my request under the Practice Direction is not a request for production within the confines of the Act and Regulations but rather, it is for a copy of the executed agreement, including signatures and all such other notices, terms and conditions as will be relied upon in the event that your client shall begin a claim.

 

A copy of the documents I have requested should be supplied to me within 14 days and you are urged not to begin proceedings for a period of not less than 14 days following the supply of those documents to me.

 

Should your client elect to ignore my request under the Practice Direction and commence proceedings, it is likely that I shall repeat my request for the provision of documents under CPR 31.14. In the event that your client should fail to comply with my CPR 31.14 request, I will not hesitate in making an application to the court for an order that further proceedings upon the claim be stayed pending provision of the requisite documents, in the course of which application I will of course refer to this and previous requests for the provision of copy documents.

 

I look forward to hearing from you within the time stated.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

One further point - has a default notice ever been served?

Cashins, In case you did not realise, that last bit was me. Guessing the underlying reason for them wanting me to call them. Corporate indoctrination is all they can pass on really, so any phone call is fruitless, from my point of view.

Arrogant g*t... And how did Power2Contact and Credit Solutions get in on the act if Debt Managers are skelping for cash ???. :confused:

Just to recap. Both Barclaycard debts were transferred to seperate DCA's from Mercers. One went to Debt managers and on to Credit solutions. Now I'm guessing, both of the new DCA's are going to send me a swathe of terrorist letters. Any query I send seems to be acknowledged and then ignored. There is no logical thread to their letters in either case. I may write to them both again if I run out of important things to do in life. Post 15 shows the default letters I got from Mercers.

If I take Debt Managers latest, letter seriously, that would mean ignoring their previous one about acknowledging my complaint. If I respond though, I will use Citizen B's letter about court protocol. I am quite use to Debt Managers though. They get in on the act, realise their letters are useless and then clear off to annoy someone else more gulible. Now, as for Power2Contact, they will have to let me know if they prefer milk or cream, coffee or tea. We can have a good old chinwag about inadequate staff training of DCA's in general and what I consider my position to be. Up my sleeve, I know both acc's have unlawful charges and I can take my time to dispute amounts owed. Now, as a point of interest, do I prejudice my case, by asking them to be refunded?

LOL, I too, didnt realise that was "added" as comment by yourself. Please note, I withdraw my comment in that case:oops::D

 

I think if you ask for the charges back, you are kind of acknowledging the debt. I am not too certain about that though.

Post 12 by CB is the last letter I sent to Credit Solutions so I have photocopied it and sent a covering letter to show I aint moving. Rec.Delivery. This follows, yet another, slightly softer, template letter I got today from Credit solutions.

 

2nd December 2008

 

Dear Overdone,

 

We refer to our previous attempts to contact you and regret that you have not replied.

 

If you are experiencing financial difficulties, it is in your best interest to contact this office to arrange a suitable repayment schedule.

 

If you are in a position to pay a lump sum in the near future, we may be able to offer you a substantial discount for prompt settlement.

 

This is your final opportunity to resove this matter. If we do not hear from you within the next 48 hours, we will recommend more direct methods of recovery to our client.

 

If you want to talk to one of our telephone terrorists call blah blah blah!!!

 

No name, no signature. Just a paying in slip.

Likewise, Debt Managers seem to know they are stuffed.

 

Dear Overdone,

 

Settlement Opportunity - up to 25% (discount available)

 

Your overdue account has been identified as qualifiying for a discount.

 

We have negotiated a range of special settlement terms with a number of our clients.

 

We are pleased to be able to offer you - without prejudice- a significant reduction.

 

Call us immediately to confirm the amount and the date you expect to make payment. A dishonoured cheque will make this offer void and the full balance becomes due immediately. Credit and Debit card payments will secure this offer on the day of your call.

 

Settlement of this overdue account may help to improve your financial status.

 

.......and the fairies come out at night and play at the bottom of my garden too.

I did them both yesterday recorded delivery but I have never understood why these letters should be devastating to a DCA. BRW also feels that SAR has the same effect. Can someone explain why as I have never had to go this far with a DCA. The CCA request usually stumps them.

I had a reply to post 16 I think. Seems like a template letter.

 

Dear Overdone,

 

Reference Section 78 of The Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Barclaycard Account No's xxxxxxxx & xxxxxxxxxx

 

I write further to the letter whereby you note dissatisfaction to the documents you received in relation to a request made under Section 77/78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Firstly, credit cards are regulated under Section 78. Section 78(1) of the Act states that the creditor shall give the debtor a copy of the executed agreement and a statement of account which is practicable to refer. Regarding a statement of account which is practicable to refer, the letters which we send in response to a Section 78 (1) request includes this information. To cover the issue of executed agreement.

 

How does the Act define an "executed agreement"?

 

"Executed agreement" is defined in section 189 of the Act as, "a document, signed by or on behalf of the parties, embodying the terms of a regulated agreement...."

 

What do the rules say about providing a copy?

 

The Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices and Copies of Documents) Regulations 1983 ("The Regulations") made under the Act deal with how we are to provide a "copy" of an agreement. These Regulations provide that any copy of the agreement supplied to a debtor should be a "True" copy. Regulation 3(2) provides that a copy may omit certain information, which allows you to be provided with a true copy, not a complete copy.

 

What happens if the original agreement has been varied since it was originally signed?

 

The regulations also set out what should happen where the agreement has been varied since it was signed. Regulation 7 provides creditors with a choice of including in the copy of the executed agreement either a copy of the latest notice of variation relating to each discrete term which has been varied, or an easily legible statement of the terms varied. Regulation 7 does not state that the copy of the agreement shall include a statement of the original terms as well as a statement of the varied terms. Regulation 7 allows us to provide you with a "True Copy" which sets out the terms and conditions current at the time of provision of the copy.

 

Conclusions in relation to the document we have to provide.

 

A "copy" of an agreement will satisfy the requirements even if the signature box and/or the signatures are not included as clarified by regulation 3(2) of the Consumer Credit (Cancellation Notices and copies of Documents) Regulations 1983.

 

The definition of "executed agreement" refers to a document embodying the terms of the regulated agreement. When this is read with Regulation 7 - for agreements that have been varied - a copy of the original agreement would not embody its terms. A copy of the agreement as varied would embody its terms.

 

The issue of what is an executed agreement has been interpreted in the High Court. It was held that an executed agreement begins as the credit agreement which is sent to the cardholder when they recieve their credit card: therefore, establishing what is the original executed agreement. When the agreement has been varied, Regulation 7 mentioned above applies.

 

To summarise, if the agreement has not been varied, we must send the original executed agreement: this would be the credit agreement which is currently regulated. If the credit agreement has been varied, we must send the current credit agreement as this will contain the terms of the regulated agreement. We have sent you this and the original executed agreement for reference.

 

I hope this letter has helped with your concerns about the documents you have been supplied with under section 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. As our response fulfils the obligation under section 78 of the consumer Credit Act 1974, you should carry on paying the debt you have accrued on your account. We do not class the account as in dispute, you have been supplied with the relevant documentation under Section 78 of the consumer credit act 1974, and we will carry on with collection services.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Colin Sefton

It lets them know you are on to their little game of intimidation. They are well aware as are B/card with all their posturing, that they will have to provide an original if they proceed to litigation.

 

They are also being made aware that they have bought a disputed account and that you wont be making it easy for them to collect on it:grin:

Hi Overdone

 

I got the exact same responce from BC as you.

 

I am in the process of sending a reply (something like the one below)

 

Dear Sirs

 

Account number

 

I write with regards to the above account with your organisation.

 

I respectfully request that you provide me by return a copy of the credit agreement which bears my signature. I require this as i have reason to believe that there may be discrepancies within the agreement which may leave it improperly executed.

 

obviously if the agreement is improperly executed i would be entitled to ask the court to consider the agreement and make a declaration of the rights of parties to the agreement.

 

I must stress this request is NOT made pursuant to section 78 Consumer Credit Act 1974 but is made pursuant to the Civil Procedure Rules ( Pre action protocols and Part 31.16) and therefore unsigned copy will not suffice, only a copy of the original contract in its unaltered form will suffice in these circumstances

 

Please confirm if you still hold a copy of my signed agreement and that you will provide me with this document.

 

I do not view this as an unreasonable request given that by supplying the document which i have asked for it will allow me to assess if my case has merit and will help to resolve matters possibly without the need to involve the court and will undoubtedly save costs on both sides

 

I look forward to your reply and would ask for a response by 21/01/09

 

Regards

Dear Sir,

You may telephone them on 0870 050 1046. It should also be noted that if you are in a position to pay in full a discount for immediate settlement may be considered.

 

Yours faithfully

No. Too dear. But Debt managers are hot off the mark. An acknowledgement of my pre court protocol request.

Dear Overdone,

 

Pursuer. Barclaycard

Balance £5,19x.xx

We refer to your recent correspondence. We can confirm we are witholding action on this account whilst our client investigates your complaint, we have been advised that this may take 6-8 weeks.

I thought Subject Access Request and pre court protocol ammounted to the same thing.
