    • To add to the weight of evidence this is fraud, do you have (or can you get) proof of what the cost of the Special Delivery was?.

    • @dx100uk, I'm afraid you've got this wrong. My fear of compromising my defence wasn't with regards my response to DCB Legal's initial letter per se. It was more in reference to any subsequent advice posted on this thread by other forum members and I was only being wary due to the numerous instances when some have cautioned about parking companies and their legal reps trawling these pages to stay a step ahead.   As I did also state however, I'm happy to provide full details of that initial reply to DCB Legal and have therefore reproduced it below. Thanks.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I received a reply to my SAR to Lloyds with a request for my signature. I've sent a copy back to them (crossed through) and was just wondering if they have to adhere to the 40 day limit from the date the original SAR was received, or from the date they receive my signature?

 

Can anyone tell me please. Thanks.

40 calendar days from the date of the original request...out of interest what reason did they give for requesting a signature?

DCA's - they have the same power as an infinite number of untrained chimps working on a script for Hamlet, but the chimps would probably at least get it right :D

Dear Sirs,

RE Account NO XXXXXXXX

Thank you for your letter dated xx/xx/2008 the contents of which are noted.

In your letter you make reference to requiring my signed authorisation /specimen signature** before you comply. I draw your attention to the fact that the Consumer Credit Act 1974 does not require that i supply you a copy of my signature before you comply with my S77/78** request.

If it is for Data Protection purposes then i can happily supply you with documentation to substantiate my identity to you.

However please note that to date you have happily sent statements and correspondence containing extensive sensitive private information to my address. I have to ask if you are concerned that you are corresponding with the correct person why has it taken so long to raise this?

As you are aware, disclosing data without adequate checks of identity is contrary to the 7th principal of data protection, listed in schedule 1 of the Data protection Act 1998:

7. Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.

My request for a true copy of my credit agreement under section 77/78** was made on xx/xx/2008 and the 12 working days for your compliance expire on xx/xx/2008. I note that there is no provision that removes the requirements of the act to provide this information on time, even if you are unsure of my identity.

I look forward to receiving the documentation requested

Yours faithfully

thanks for your responses folks. I sent a variation of that letter PGH as it was for an SAR. Just thought it would save time by adding a crossed signature too.

The only reason for asking for a signature for a SAR can be for identification purposes.

 

They have admitted that they don't have an up to date signature so there is no need to send one, because they can't use it to confirm your identity. Presumably they want it for some other purpose, so be careful.

 

I would be tempted to walk into Lloyds armed with ID & their letter & tell them to record that you have identified yourself as the person making the request (but not allow them to make copies of the id because the act doesn't allow them to demand that)

The Information Commissioners Office guidelines on data protection are quite clear on this.

 

In section 2 they quote "Often you will have no reason to doubt a person's identity. For example, if a person with whom you have regular contact sends a letter from their known address it may be safe to assume that they are who they say they are"

Credit card companies are increasingly using the signature excuse for not supplying documents. As 2Grumpy says, be very careful. Did you scan and keep a copy of the signed letter that you sent them?

The general reason for demanding a signature is either

 

1. because they can

2. it's their industry standard

3. it's their policy.

 

None of these is a good enough reason

2Grumpy, what you say in post #6 makes such sense now, I didn't think of that, its all scary stuff! Sadly its too late now as I've already sent the letter off. Wish I'd had this info before.

 

No Vint, I didn't keep a copy of the letter with the signature on, but I wish I had. I did cross it through with big crosses - hopefully they won't be able to do anything too sinister with that.

Hopefully not, but you should be able to tell if they try.
