    • Thanks for this update. Obviously I'm very pleased that your guitar has been delivered and that you don't have to take any further action about this. On the other hand, I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping that this might be an opportunity to deliver a serious slap against Hermes. Anyway, who knows why it happened like this – but the most important thing is that the item has been delivered and you're not out of pocket – and also probably you have learned a good lesson – don't use Hermes – or Packlink. It's a recipe for trouble.

    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

i have had it for about 4 years now and its never realy bothered me although its never got lower (about 5k) and i pay a really really outrageous interest rate on it. at the time i took it out i was taken into the manager of the HSBC in Beckehams office (only 19 at the time) and was told "your so in debt get this everything will be hunky dory" i now realise this was a bad move all round and am now paying £150 a month off it (the minimimum being £88 or there abouts) anyways i was wondering is there anything i can do about this unfair loan? i have written to them and they did provide me with a signed copy of the contract so i have gone that path! i am not sure whats next though? :confused: thanks people

Hi aaron , welcome to the forum :)

 

There are many people on this this site who are in the same position as yourself ..... Managed Loans are horrendous.......... :eek:

 

However , if you have the terms & conditions of your signed contract , they should indicate that this loan is a tempory measure to help you back on your financial feet and that it should be reviewed every (six?) months or so to see if it can be re- structured to a more acceptable level of repayments and interest.

 

If they have never reviewed this with you since it was taken out they are in breach of their own T&C s ........

 

Come back and let us know :

a. if you have the T&C s along with the contract ......

b. have the bank complied with the conditions for a Managed Loan ..... by reviewing your case ........

btw ,aaron , I think you need to be in possession of the contract and T&Cs before you can send them a letter - once you've got those to hand we can find a suitable letter to challenge them with .... :)

The first para of that letter says " together with any other documentation the Act requires you to provide" .

 

That includes T&C s aaron , it's not a proper agreement without them ...... :) they should be part of the signed contract .........

Hi people, ok got a copy of the credit agreement, not really sure what i am looking for but ill tell ya what it says and you can tell me if you need anything else:

 

Principle of loan £5850.00

 

interest of loand 13 9 %

(being 40% above the banks base rate)

 

APR 14.8%

 

no account has been taken in the calculation of this apr of any variation that may occur as a result of any changes in the banks base rate which may be varied by us from time to time at our discretion.

REPAYMENT

initial repayments £88.00

127 further monthly payments of £88.00

date of loan 18/06/04

 

LOAN TERMS

 

we will calculate interest on the daily clared balance of the loan account, on the basis that there are 365 days in a year this means that in a leap an extra days interest is payable we weill charge interest in arrears on the same day each month or the next working day. from the day that interest is debited to the loan account, the loan is incresed by that amount until it is paid.

 

REPAYMENTS

 

e may change the amount and number of your repayments to take account of any change in the banks base rate after the date of this arrangement

 

OK peeps not sure what else i might need to post on ehre from it?

 

can you help me?

Can you post it up as a photobucket image , Aaron - makes it easer to see if it's all OK .

 

If you can't - there's a couple of things :

 

1 . I take it that it say's 13.9% and it's 4.0% above the base rate ?

 

2. Is your signature and that of the bank anywhere on it ?

 

3. Also , if this is a Managed Loan, it's supposed to be a short term loan to tide you over a rough period and should be reviewed periodically to see if you can be offered a 'restructure' with more beneficial (to you!) terms.

If they have never done this this then they're in breach of the conditions ......

to be honest the photocopy i ahve isn't great so not sure how it would come out on here.

 

i presume its 13.9% as there is no dot between the two amounts. but yes it clearly says interest 13 9% being 40% above banks base rate. APR is in a box which says 14.8%

 

my signature is on the copy yes.

 

they have never made any contact with regard restructuring the loan in any way, in fact they have never contacte dme about the loan full stop.

Aaron, I think a read up on this thread may give you some guidance on how to proceed - some of it is 'irrelevant' or off - topic , but if you persevere you'll get the picture ..........

Of course , come back if you're in any doubt and someone will answer you ...... :)

i know its hard to keep explaining everything simply and i feel like i am bugging your guys but posts like:

 

I am due to put my Claim in next wednesday (finances permitting)

 

I claimed £3498 for my charges

£1023 (out of £1800) for part of my managed loan which I can prove accumulated because of charges. (I had that amount on my overdraft at the time of being forced into taking the loan)

I am claiming £143.77 for the % of the loan protection that applies to the part of my loan I am claiming. (If you only claim part of the loan you can only claim the same % part of the protection)

 

£4665.37 total.

 

I will add 8% to each charge and add that when I file my claim, and the £120 in costs.

 

So it will be about £5000 in the end.

 

The loan amounts and payments were all on my statements as I took it with HSBC, it shows clearly when, how much and the PPI.

 

Anyone with statemements should be able to do the same.

 

if you feel brave and you can prove you had this loan to pay off charges then you can try to claim contractual rate of interest on the loan amount (ie if they were charging you 16.9% apr for the loan you can ask for it back with this interest added to the amount of the loan)

 

Im not claiming interest as I only had the loan for a few months then paid it off as I found a cheaper deal, as I was a homeowner.

Hey Jonny,

 

You seem to be pretty clued up on some of this stuff and was wondering if you can help me.

 

I have just joined this forum as I am keen to see if any of my credit agreements are unenforceable.

 

I presently have an issue with a couple of things to do with HSBC and was wondering if you could asist and give me some useful advice on this one.

 

Firstly I had a £25,000 unsecured loan with HSBC in 2004 which I paid for 2 years before it was restructured into a manged loan as I could not afford the repayments of over £600 a month. My question is, can I still contest this original personal loan, and if it is unenforceable, what I am entitled to?

 

Secondly, I now wish to contest the managed loan and have received the CCA which appears to be in order, however:

 

1: Having read all about what constitutes an enforceable agreement I think they have covered everything, however they have never notified me of any changes on the interest, or how this would affect my monthly payments which it says they will in the agreement. Is this grounds for anything? Or is there anything I can address which I may have missed?

 

2. Most importantly. If the original personal loan can be contested and found to be unenforceable, then does that mean by default that the managed loan also becomes null and void as a result of being established to cover the original personal loan that was unenforceable?

 

Some quality knowledge and advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Spartan

Hey Jonny,

 

Hi SpartanKing , welcome to the forum :)

My question is, can I still contest this original personal loan, and if it is unenforceable, what I am entitled to?

 

I must admit I'm not sure about this one, SK , you could ask them via a CCA for a copy of the original agreement , but if it was restructured into another loan , they may say they haven't got it, although they should have if it finished less than 6 years ago (2006?)

Secondly, I now wish to contest the managed loan and have received the CCA which appears to be in order, however:

 

1: Having read all about what constitutes an enforceable agreement I think they have covered everything, however they have never notified me of any changes on the interest, or how this would affect my monthly payments which it says they will in the agreement. Is this grounds for anything? Or is there anything I can address which I may have missed?

 

A Managed Loan is supposed to be a temporary measure to tide you over a rough , financial period - it's not suppposed to be long-term and should be reviewed periodically to see if if can be re-strutured to your advantage - not theirs....... if no reviews have been done you may have a case to report this to the FOS - it may constitute a breach of the Managed Loan agreement , which you should also ask for as part of your CCA Request .

2. Most importantly. If the original personal loan can be contested and found to be unenforceable, then does that mean by default that the managed loan also becomes null and void as a result of being established to cover the original personal loan that was unenforceable?

 

I think it's best to take the CCA route first to find out exactly what they've got on you - see if they can produce viable agreements - then you can work out your next moves from that point ....

 

Some quality knowledge and advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Spartan

 

I'm no expert SK, but I've picked up a few bits and pieces along the way - no doubt if I'm wrong though ,someone will jump in and say so ......

By all means come back and ask if you're still in doubt - someone will answer , and we're user-friendly .... :D
