    • Just by way of an update, I am now being targeted on Twitter.   Today, two profiles have been set up and followed me, both were "here to call out Sue's sh*t".  Both have now been blocked.   I have clearly hit a raw nerve somehwhere 🤨
    • The OP could call Express to see if they will withdraw the claim if she restarts her claim and just pay the court issue fee.    Then everyone is a winner! 
    • Hi Stormy   I do wish you good luck but I'd urge you not to get over-optimistic about a letter from your GP having any bearing on the outcome of this.  I do not share London1971's view that such a letter will assist you in defending the claim against you - unless you are suggesting that the diagnosis is so bad that you aren't functioning - in which case you probably ought not to be working.  Is your GP going to say that you can't be held liable for a breach of contract, but that you're perfectly OK to continue working and to make significant decisions in other areas of your life?  I don't know.   Also, I'm uncertain where the question of bullying and harassment first surfaced in this thread.  You engaged them on a NWNF basis to pursue a claim for you.  Apparently they contacted (or attempted to contact) you a lot - certainly more than you felt necessary or were comfortable with, and you ended up deciding to discontinue the case.  But were they harassing you?  Again, I simply don't know because I wasn't there - only you were.  Most people complain that they don't have enough contact from their solicitors, not that they are being harassed by being contacted too often.  [EDIT:  I also think most people would associate "harassment" with behaviour that is in some way harmful or damaging to the recipient, and not with a situation where the alleged harasser is trying to act in the other person's interest and to their benefit].    And I'm not sure where the bullying comes from?  They're suing you because they think you are in breach of contract and that you owe them the costs and expenses they've already incurred - and that they cannot now recover from the other party because you decided to discontinue the case.  I'm no particular supporter of law firms but, unlike some people, I don't have "anti-lawyer" as a default setting.  If they've genuinely incurred costs acting on your behalf and in your interests, then I think they've got a more than fair case to recover those costs.  Threatening to sue you or actually suing you isn't necessarily bullying.   I honestly think your best chance of success is questioning the level and extent of costs and expenses they claim to have incurred and try to reach a mutually acceptable settlement.   As I've said before, I'm not intending to be critical of you in any way and I'm really sorry that all this (the original accident, hassle with the lawyers and now them suing you) seems to have contributed to all the stress you have to bear.  I'm really just interested in ensuring that you can see this problem from all points of view and that you don't place too much reliance on an approach that I think has only very limited chances of success.  (But of course - as London1971 has pointed out - there's no harm in getting a GP's letter anyway AND preparing a legal defence like BankFodder is suggesting AND preparing to think about settling.  They aren't all mutually exclusive and you should keep as many irons in the fire as you can.  Use belt and braces and don't just rely on one).   Anyway.  Good luck.  I'm frequently wrong and you may win outright!

    • I think it would be prudent to stick with a realistic objective and that is the hundred and £69 which you you can apparently support by means of evidence. You originally said that you could have sold them for four times – £400 and I think this is certainly unrealistic. If you had some official evaluation of the books from an independent source then you would have stood a good chance but as the books have gone, I think your fallback is the £169

    • 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

Hi

unenforcable IMO..they havent sent you historic Terms..In 2004 the late and overlimit charges were 20.00 not 12.00..No precribed Terms within sig doc..And they have sent you current terms send them this.. Amend to suit

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Account no xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

 

Re: my request under the Consumer Credit Act 1974

 

This account is in Dispute .

 

On xx/xx/2007 I wrote to xxxxxxxxx requesting that xxxxxxx supply me a true copy of the executed credit agreement for this account.

In response to this request I was supplied a mere application form which did not comply with the requirements of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

The document sent purporting to be a credit agreement does not contain any of the prescribed terms as required by section 60(1) Consumer Credit Act 1974. The Consumer Credit (Agreements) Regulations 1983 (SI 1983/1553) made under the authority of the “1974 Act” sets out what the prescribed terms are, I refer you to Schedule 6 Column 2 of SI 1983/1553 for the definition of what is required. Suffice to say none of the terms are present in the document

 

Since this document does not contain the required prescribed terms it is rendered unenforceable by s127 (3) consumer Credit Act 1974, which states

 

127(3) The court shall not make an enforcement order under section 65(1) if section 61(1)(a)(signing of agreements) was not complied with unless a document (whether or not in the prescribed form and complying with regulations under section 60(1)) itself containing all the prescribed terms of the agreement was signed by the debtor or hirer (whether or not in the prescribed manner).

 

This situation is backed by case law from the Lords of Appeal in Ordinary (House of Lords) the highest court in the land. Your attention is drawn to the authority of the House of Lords in Wilson-v- FCT [2003] All ER (D) 187 (Jul) which confirms that where a document does not contain the required terms under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 the agreement cannot be enforced.

 

In addition should you continue to pursue me for this debt you will be in breach of the OFT guidelines, I draw your attention to the Office of Fair Trading’s guidance on debt collection

The OFT guidance which was issued July 2003 (updated December 2006) relating to debt collections and what the OFT considers unfair, I have enclosed an excerpt from page 5 of the guidance which states

 

2.6 Examples of unfair practices are as follows:

 

h. Ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment

 

I require you to produce a compliant copy of my credit agreement to confirm I am liable to you or any organisation, which you represent for this alleged debt, if you cannot do so I require written clarification that this is the case. Should you ignore this request I will report you to the Office of Fair Trading to consider your suitability to hold a credit licence in addition to a complaint to Trading Standards, as you will be in breach of the Administration of Justice Act 1970 section 40

 

Since the agreement is unenforceable and the default notice is non compliant, it would be in everyone’s interest to consider the matter closed and for your client to write the debt off. I suggest you give serious consideration to this as any attempt of litigation will be vigorously defended and I will counter claim for all quantifiable damages

 

I respectfully request a response to this letter in 14 days

 

 

I trust this out lines the situation

Yes the prescribed terms should be on the sig page and can not be found in another document ...However the prescribed terms can be found on the reverse of the page..But there has to be some kind of link to say this IE overleaf ..pto ..reference numbers or page numbers :)

Hi there thanks for that,

Yes they are on the other side of the signiture page which i had not noticed untill you said, they are not in a A4 format they are way smaller than the page and there is no reference to it on the signiture page,

Surley these should be on the signituer page for you to read before you sign to the affect of the terms and conditions.

Think i will send thnem a letter stating i require a true copy and that the cca is unenforcable, what do you think ??????

Also should'nt ' the right to cancel' section be embodied within the terms and conditions and not in a seperate document as it states on the signiture page

Hi

 

i too have the same CCa has you..On the reverse of mine i have CONDITIONS OF USE..Theres no reference to the Terms being on the reverse in fact if you read in the box above the sig it says YOU HAVE RECEIVED A COPY OF which avers to the terms being in a separate document, this is unexceptable..Also on the front of the doc it gives you cancellation rights..on the back of mine it gives cancellation rights again,this time different to the ones on the front of the CCA..there wouldnt be to diff cancellation rights on one form..let alone different ones..It very easy for someone to copy terms on the reverse..I truely beleive these wasnt there when we signed..I havent payed halifax for 15 mths..account has gone from halifax to blair to capquest to robinson way all who have passed back to halifax..I think if halifax had any ammo they would of used it by now :).Sending a letter is good...you could also point out to them your concerns,then see what they come back with,i asked to view mine at my local branch they ignored the question ,,i wonder why

just a bit concerned because apex own the account now as it was sold to them, so dont know how they will react to me sending them any letter to say its unenforceable what is the worst they could do?? take me to court??? and then what, just abit worried,

I want to get it all right before i start with course of action, as long as i can 100 percent sure the cca is uneforcable i will be fine.

thanks for your responce how far are you down the line with it all

Hi

 

No one knows for sure if theses CCA are enfocable..as it stands they are improperly executed so can only be enforced by court..If we could all remember if the T & C were on the back then that would help us,,but we cant remember..the only way u would find out is if it went to court..

 

Did u CCA Apex or Halifax??

 

Quoting how far i am down the line ..as i said in the last post mine has been passed from 1 DCA to another ..they have now passed it back to halifax..not heard a word in 2 mths..maybe they know i have an invalid DEFAULT notice..instead of me paying the full amount wich is 16.000 they are only entitled to the arrears on default notice wich is about 2.000..mind you there are unlawful charges on there so they will prob end up with not alot ;)..If the cca did turn out enforcable ..wich i think its not ..and it went to court ..the judge will never ask you to pay more than u can afford..and also if they issued court papers then u defend on the basis of the CCA they sent you ..stating what you think is wrong with it..Are u a home owner?? employed ??

 

Did you get a notice of assignment from Apex and halifax??

 

Have you been issued with a default notice??

 

There is a guy on here called fingers he has the same CCa he is getting his looked at proffesionally to see if it enforcable or not...Look up another thread SUSSEX1 i think thats a good thread bout a CCa the same as yours
