    • Thank you for your reply!   I’ve just had the following response from Disney. Not great at all.   Dear Fishy Thank you for your reply. We kindly confirm that Disneyland® Paris annual passes are usually non-refundable. However, due to the unprecedented situation with CoViD-19, the duration of your annual passes and their benefits have been extended by the number of days our Disney Parks were temporarily closed (123 days), starting from the original expiry date of your annual passes. As previously mentioned, we are unable to put an additional temporary halt on your annual passes; however, we would like to offer you an exceptional partial refund. If you wish to accept our offer, please provide us with a copy of the annual passes of your party as well as the filled in and signed refund form at your earliest convenience. Your annual passes will consequently be blocked. We hope that this information is helpful for you, and we look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely, Constantin Guest Communication
    • I have now written up the Claim and will post this, we have also been informed by the DJ they will counter-sue for the full amount if we take them to Court for the £500 we are at a loss? We we have also included interest from the date they refused the Money in May as we are having to borrow to fund the wedding in three weeks, its so disheartening as we also have to pay £415 to put the claim in when they could have just resolved this matter!   Are they not bothered about customers at all, they are prepared to keep money without providing any service at all   Its so shameful
    • I'm afraid lapse of time has got nothing to do with it in this case. At the very minimum, though there is is six years within which to recover a debt – and when the money is paid by way of a mistake, it is six years from the date that the mistake was discovered or could reasonably have been discovered. I understand that your vehicle was damaged in an accident and the repair bill was paid by the insurer. Somehow or other, you were also paid about £2000 ostensibly to pay the garage for the repairs. As the car was already repaired, you didn't pay the money over or query it – but you used the money. I'm afraid that if that is a correct summary of what has happened then I would say that you are obliged to repay the money. If my understanding is correct – then you had probably better contact the solicitors and start dealing with them because I'm sure that they will have no hesitation issuing a claim against you and you will then be liable for the money, plus interest at 8% – plus a measure of costs – if the judgement sum is not paid 30 days of the date of judgement.  
    • Here is the latest draft defence aligned to each item from the POC. I have incorporated PAP detail into Item 4 of the defence in italics. Do I add the detail of CCA into Defence Item 5? Your comments, advice and suggested amendments are welcome.   1. The Claimant ('C') claims the whole of the outstanding balance due and payable under an agreement referenced “ref number” and opened effective from 27/08/2016. The agreement is regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, was signed by the Defendant ('D') and from which credit was extended to the Defendant.   Defence 1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of the claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   2.  The Defendant failed to comply with a default notice served pursuant to s87, . CCA and by 05/08/2019  a default was recorded. Defence 2. Paragraph 1 is denied. I cannot recall any dealing with HSBC in the past, I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.   3.  As at 18/09/2019 the Defendant owed “Bank of SCOTLAND” the sum of 3897281. Defence 3. Paragraph 3 is denied. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.   4. By an agreement in writing the benefit of the debt has been legally assigned to the Claimant effective 18/09/2019 and made regular upon the Claimant serving a Notice of Assignment the Defendant shortly thereafter. Defence 4. Paragraph 5 is denied and I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor or Legal Assignment the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) and Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.    5. And the Claimant claims: 1. 397281;  2. Interest pursuant to Section 69 County Court Act (1984) at a rate of 8 % per Annum from 18/09/2019 to 25/08/2020 of 26171 And thereafter at a daily rate of 82 to date of judgment or sooner payment. Date 28/08/2010 Defence 5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Link Financial & Kearns Solicitors by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via Royal Mail delivery on 28 August 2020. To date, neither Link Financial or Kearns Solicitors are yet to furnish me with the requested information.   7.Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:- a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for; c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974. d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   9. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
    • Hi   I am not really sure where to post this , hopefully it’s appropriate here    At the end of 2017 my partner was involved in a rtc when a car pulled round a bus and hit my car that my partner was driving.   on the advice of family I instructed a car accident management company to deal with the repairs/make necessary arrangements.  The car was fixed and the accident management company paid us a couple of thousand pounds to pay the garage .  The bill never came from the garage and we were told that it had been settled by the insurance company.    when I sold the car a few months ago I struggled to sell to the garage as it was registered by my insurance as a write off.  I was offered significantly less for it because of this.    today I received a letter from a solicitors instructed by my insurance company to recover the money they paid for the repairs back in 2017.    I guess logically/morally my car was fixed and the money from the accident company is extra- although the car was marked by my insurance  as written off yet fixed!   do I need to pay them the sum they are asking or due to the time elapsed etc do I not.  The letter has made me so worried as threats of court action /costs    Thank you

    • 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 .

link/kearns claimform - Old Morgan stanley Card - chasing again - now stay lifted - i'd moved!!


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have a Barclay card as above,

I am paying every month by DD not in areas no late payments paying just over the minimum can not afford any more

 

they keep upping my interest rate 28% NOW,

how can they justify this when the bank rate is at an all time low,

 

I feel like I am being robbed but can not do anything about it,

I don't have the cash to pay the balance in full.

 

Any suggestions on how to get them to stop with the interest rate rises.

 

 

thanks

 

 

El

Consider the CCA route if the debt is large and you can not envisage paying it off. You will probably have a low credit scoring pay off being more money in your pocket if there is no agreement. Are there any charges you can claim back.

Hi Ellis,

 

Have a look at the first few letters here - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-bailiffs-advice/20758-creditors-dcas-letter-templates.html

 

Send the one you feel most appropriate for your circumstances.

 

Just so you're under no illusions, BC are usually unwilling to accomodate requests like this but you have to try.

 

If they refuse, there are alternatives you can look at, for instance you can check to see if they have a valid Credit Agreement.

 

If they don't, in theory, you can repay the loan at a rate that suits you without any more interest or charges being added.

 

In practice, it's not that simple with BC. :mad:

 

:)

Hi All,

 

Well, received a response to my request to lower the interest rate which was refused,

replied to email asking for the justification for the increase which I think is very unreasonable.

I veiwed my account on line and noticed they do not state the rate they are charging you on there.

 

Here they are trying to entice pepole to take out their cards with 12% interest rates yet charging existing customer rates more then double this surely this must be able to be challenged. I hope when we come through this financial crisis people remember the Banks/Credit card companies that took the .. and give them a very wide birth.:-x

 

Seems to me that to compensate for the fact they can not longer dish out the credit to all and sundry they are going to fleece they ones they already sucked in.

 

Thanks for all your advice let's see what they come back with.

 

I think I might just email them every day with a one line question as to why they are robbing the poor to pay for their sorry mistakes in the banking industry anyone got a group email address.;-)

 

Would love to start a chain email to name and shame.

Theyre stalling. Remind them they have 12+2 and the money was sent, and the time is ticking. Then ignore until they provide the CCA

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

You DON'T respond, they know the rules.

 

Keep their foolish response safe, then when they flog it on, you have the new clowns over a barrel.

 

NEVER tell them that they have failed. IGNORE them. (IMO)

 

Otherwise you encourage the clowns in a game of pointless letter tennis.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Can you advise how to proceed.

 

I sent a cca request to kearns solicitors/asset finance included a blank postal order and sent recorded.

Received a reply today saying they are unable to comply as I did not enclose the required fee?

 

Thanks in advance

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

If they failed to reply to the CCA reply, that's their problem. They're in default of a valid CCA Request and cannot take further collection action until they comply with the request.

 

When did you last pay BC or any DCA toward this a/c.

 

I agree with DX - just ignore the begging letters for now.

Last payment was about 18 months ago I think.

 

it doesn't matter that they say the fee was not sent?

 

I have a reciept for the postal order which states the id number didnt think to take a pic of the actual order.

 

Thanks for the advice

If last pay't was 18 months back, the a/c isn't Stat Barred for another 4.5 years.

 

When was the a/c defaulted by BC.

Hi Ellis,

 

Is this a/c still showing on your CRA files.

 

When were you first persistently unable to meet the minimum required payments for the a/c.

Received another letter today giving me seven days to propose a payment plan or they will proceed with legal action.

 

I have wrote a simple reply saying please find enclosed a copy of my CCA request together with a copy of the receipt for the postal order sent with it.

Is this my best course of action?

Thanks

 

Ok thanks will ignore this letter. I got it ready but haven't posted as wanted to ask on here first.
