    • Thankyou very much i will be around all day it would be appreciated Below is another attempt :     IN THE COUNTY COURT AT ***************                 CLAIM NO:**********     BETWEEN:   LOWELL PORTFOLIO I LTD CLAIMANT   and   MRS *********************** DEFENDANT   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   WITNESS STATEMENT OF ******************   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   I, ******************************************* WILL SAY as follows:   I make this Witness Statement in support of my defence in the claim.     INTRODUCTION   1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct disputed or bad debts, which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed 10p to 15p in the £1 and to which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income. Lowell Portfolio I Ltd issue claims to circumvent and claim the full amount of debt to maximise profit.   2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.   BACKGROUND 3. The Claim relates to an alleged Credit Card Agreement between the defendant and Vanquis Bank   4. Whilst it is accepted that the defendant has in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis, the defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers, and the defendant has not entered into any contract with the Claimant.   5.The defendant made a formal written request to the Claimant for them to provide me with a copy of my Consumer Credit Agreement as entitled to do so under sections 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 on the 27th August 2019 along with the standard fee of £1.00 postal order to which the defendant received a reply dated 6th September 2019 putting their account on hold whilst they tried to gather the information.   6.The defendant received a reply dated 24th October 2019 with no CCA attached other than the documents which enclosed a statement, default notice, notice of assignment from Vanquis to Lowell & a reconstituted copy of an agreement which the claimants have already provided in their witness statement dated 3rd August 2020.   7.On 15th January 2020, I received a claim form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £******. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £********* in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no ******************* pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA). Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Vanquis to Lowell on 24 June 2015 with notice given.   CONCLUSION 8.To date no valid full true copy of the executed credit agreement or the terms and conditions have been disclosed .the claimant has no grounds on which to enforce this alleged debt.   9.The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application. The screenshots are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.   10.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78 6a of the CCA1974 the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.   11.For the above reasons the claim bought by the claimant is without merit and an abuse of the court process. It would be far more gracious and forthright for the claimant to admit that they do not have possession of the correct valid paperwork and this is an attempt to mislead and convince the court that the claimant can disclose the legal valid documents on which its claim relies on. It is therefore requested that the Claimants Claim is struck out pursuant to the above.   STATEMENT OF TRUTH   I, ************** the defendant, believe the facts stated in this witness statement are true. I understand that proceedings for contempt of Court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.   Signed: …………………………………………… Print Name: ************* Dated: 4th August 2020

    • 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 a Court date of the 28th July for a set aside of a CCJ from RBS & Bryan Carter.

 

The only thing I have sent so far is a N244 as below, what else do I need to do or send? I have scoured the forum but can't find anything specific to my situation as others have disputed the 2nd CCJ before it was granted.

 

Any & all advice welcome please.

I think that you'll find that BC agree to setting the Judgment aside.

 

Can I ask what happened with the original claim - did you get the summons - did you do anything with it...

 

I don't think that you will have a problem with your application - if you let us know when you get a hearing date we'll run through the process - I ought to add that it is unlikely that they will even attend court - they don't usually...


If I've helped feel free to add to my reputation.

Hi IGNM, I did receive the 1st lot of court papers but it was at a time when I wasn't opening my mail regularly, so I opened the Claim form & the default judgment at the same time. I wasn't to bothered at the time as it was only for about 10% of what I owed (in hindsight eh!).

 

I paid off the CCJ in installments so it's still on file & credit report but got the above letter advising satisfied, I then got a letter from B.C advising I still owed them £XXXX & I offered to continue with the same payments I'd been making but the only response I got was a second claim form, I again offered to continue payments & that resulted in me "accepting" the 2nd CCJ apparently.

 

11am on Tues 28th is when I'm due at court, I'm hoping the fact that B.C. have stopped calling me as the 1st sign that they might be filing this one in the cock up pile?

 

Many thanks

Morph

If the set aside is granted, what do people think my chances are of claiming back monies paid to Bryan Carter under threat of ramifications from an unlawfully obtained CCJ.:?

 

I don't want to push my luck but lets face it if it isn't lawful to obtain a second CCJ then should it be lawful for BC to gain monies from it?:-|

 

All opinions welcome

as i understand it, once u have set aside, the claim returns to the beginning, therefore if u have paid any monies under an order on that judgment, u shud get it back.

Perhaps it's in respect of claiming damages etc.?

 

Andy popped this on my thread so it may be relevant.

 

The Claimant, possessing no legal right to claim monies allegedly owed, has acted unlawfully in obtaining a CCJ and registering said Notice with Credit Reference Agencies. Such conduct is a breach of the Data Protection Act 1998 and amounts to defamation. under The Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and The Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.

Hi Morph,

 

Just by going on the advice I've received on my thread so far, you basically just need a draft defence to prove you have a chance of success... nothing too complicated, just enough to show the basics are there to build on if it went to trial, and a reason why you didn't defend in the first place...

 

At least that's the way I'm seeing it.

Doh... too late!

Thanks guys, I'll have to re-read all my subbed threads & the suggested ones an hour at a time, any longer & I get confuddled & word blind.

 

I s'pose it SHOULD be straightforeward, BC broke the rules with the 2nd CCJ so it is only right to set it aside. My challenge will be to get some of the monies paid back & some costs.

 

thanks to all again.

hi morph

just to add another few hours to your reading....this has elements of costs and reclaiming in it which might be of use and its a 'won' thread:)

Just a thought. You say that the original CCJ was for only 10% of the debt. The balance referred to in BC's letter could be the remaining 90% and it could be this 90% that the second CCJ is for

 

Or have I missed something?

Yes that's correct BUT the rule is that you cannot split the claim, however BC does this to make sure he gets his fees & stuff everyone else concerned.

So the remaining 90% is, in effect, unenforceable?

Yes:D & when RBS ask me nicely for the money I'll say "sue BC for it coz it's his dodgy practices that have lost you your claim to it"

Well I won my Set Aside:D, Bryan Carter or RBS didn't attend but they sent notice that they wouldn't object to the set aside & would discontinue the claim if I didn't press for costs.

 

District Judge not interested in the fact I wanted to reclaim money I'd paid out for the 2nd CCJ & asked the dreaded "Do you owe the debt" & I said I didn't dispute owing them something just not the figure they have produced, he seemed to accept that without issue.

 

He advised perhaps I should have requested the refund in with the set aside application & to do my homework if I wanted to claim any money back but to be wary of how much it could cost me if I failed.:sad:

 

I'll take the win in the knowledge I may not have got my money back but the only person RBS can demand the outstanding balance from is Bryan Carter & not me;)

Hey Morph...

 

Sorry :oops:.. belated 'thank yous' for trying to find out about the 'admission' issue, I meant to post on Robcags thread but forgot. It's all still a bit of dilemma.:confused:

 

Thanks again for trying.
