Hi all im new to the forum, stumbled upon you while searching the net for advice, hopefully someone here can help with my problem as i dont no what else to do, im afraid im not at all clued up about the whole dept, finance thing and have to admit rather naive about it all to, anyways here`s my problem.

 

I got a car back in 2005 on finance with welcome for £4000 while i was with my ex partner the agreement was in my name, i paid the loan propelly for around a year and a half at £250 a month, i then lost my job an split with my partner an could not afford to pay the repayments as we were paying half each while together but after splitting i could not expect her to pay as i had the car.

 

I fell into arrears and after speaking to welcome they offerd to lower my monthly payments unkown to me at the time they rewrote my original loan and gave me another loan to pay of my arrears, i was under the impression i was being given another loan to pay the balance and arrears, i continued to pay a set amount at the time unkowing i was paying for 2 loans one being the rewritten car finance and the other being a personal loan!.

 

I fell into arrears with them again after loosing my job again and the loan/loans where defaulted and i was told all interest was frozen and no more charges would be added, when i equired to how much i owed them in totall i was told it was to date £4796 on the car finance and £1263 on the personal loan thats £6059 for a car on hire purchase originally £4000 that i have been paying since 2005 !!!!!.

 

I have spoken to welcome many times and asked them why i owe so much and for copies of every statement, payment, an documnent sighned by myself but they only ever send statements dating back to when they rewrote the hp agreement ! they will never take my complaints seriously i constantly get told someone will look into it but i never hear anything back!!

 

I feel i was totally unfairly an mis-informigly (is that a word?) given these new agreements an how is it possible to still owe so much, i need some advice on what i can do please guys, i have just read in my local paper that several of welcomes bosses have been sacked over doing this sort of thing! is this what has happened to me??.

 

Any help will be greatly appriciated guys.

Tried to click on the link mate but takes me back to the forum front page.

 

Also iv just typed up a letter (below) is this ok would you of thought?

Dear sir/madam

I am writing to you to request a “Subject Access Request”, and to inform you that I am placing my accounts, “a/c no. ******” and “a/c no.******” in dispute so no further payments will be made by me until I am satisfied that my accounts are in order.

I have spoken to several members of your staff on several occasions regarding my accounts but never hear anything back! So I feel I have to resort to this type of action.

I would like you to send me original copies of the very first HP Agreement as signed by myself, original copies of any other agreements signed by myself, also statements of all my Accounts including the Original Un-rewritten HP Agreement. I would like these to show all payments and all charges on all of the accounts.

I will send back any original documents to you.

I feel my original HP Agreement was “unfairly rewritten” and I was thoroughly misinformed on what was actually happening with the account, I was miss sold a Personal Loan to pay off arrears on the HP Agreement, then the HP was rewritten, I cannot understand what the point of this was other than to extort more money out of me.

I am in the process of speaking to the FSA and the FINANICIAL OMBUDSMAN who advised me to contact you regarding all of this so I would appreciate a response within 7 working days, this will stop the FINANICIAL OMBUDSMAN contacting your selves on my behalf.

Basically, you can't trust them (or anyone really) with your signature. It's not unheard of for someone to get a bit creative with Photoshop and all of a sudden you've "signed" whatever they decide they'd like you to have signed!

 

So for example, if they were unable to find a properly executed agreement, not uncommon, they could simply make one....

Hi Worbster

 

Unfortunately they have 40 days to respond to the SAR and will almost certainly use all 40!

A CCA request is a legal demand for them to supply a "true copy" of the original agreement, to which they have 12+2 days to respond. However, theoretically, that is already covered by your SAR so, although, quicker, provides less ammo than the SAR.

 

Do Lewis still have the account? Or have they passed it back to Welcome?(Of course, they are the same people, just different desks...!).

 

Can you post the wording of your dispute letter here (minus personal info). If the account is officially in dispute they will need to investigate and provide you with a written response. You are correct about the payments when in dispute - I won't advise either way on that though because I don't know if it may make the situation worse. Once you receive the SAR response you will be in a better position to make that decision.

I spoke to lewis yesterday as they sent me a little yellow card saying please ring this number its urgent!, anyway i explained what i had done to the guy i spoke to and he said he will contact welcome to find out what is going on, i also sent copies of my S.A.R request and dispute letter to lewis as they requested, they claimed to have not received them (didn`t send recorded) welcome did however receive there documents as i sent them recorded and have traked and traced, so i guess im just waiting to hear if lewis have passed it back to welcome.

 

This a copy of my dispute letter, i used a template from here, hope the originall author dosn`t mind ;)

 

 

I sent it recorded to this address please say it is the correct one lol

FORMAL NOTICE - ACCOUNT IN DISPUTE.

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to you to formally notify you I am placing my accounts, account number ******* and account number ******* in dispute.

Therefore I will be cancelling future payments to your company from today’s date.

I have spoken to several members of your staff regarding my concerns over my accounts but have yet to hear anything back so I now feel it is time to take further action.

I have enclosed a SUBJECT ACCESS REQUEST with this notice so the FINANCIAL OMBUDSMAN and THE FSA can further look into my concerns, you will then be contacted regarding my course of action.

Furthermore you should be aware that a creditor is not permitted to take ANY action against an account whilst it remains in dispute.

 

* You may not demand any payment on the account, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you.

* You may not add further interest or any charges to the account.

* You may not pass the account to a third party.

* You may not register any information in respect of the account with any credit reference agency.

* You may not issue a default notice related to the account.

 

I reserve the right to report your actions to any such regulatory authorities as I see fit.

 

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter by ensuring that I have no further contact from your company save for any matter regarding the investigation in progress.

 

Yours faithfully

FOR THE WIFE, FROM TEDS THREAD.

 

Will the cca provide me with just the originall hp agreement or copies of the apparent 3 of them.(original hp, rewritten hp and mystery personel loan).

the CCA will only provide you with original copy from whichever loan account you request, alternatively if you send a £1 postal order for each account you have/had and put the account numbers on it they will have to comply with all of them in the 12+2 days. just remember don't sign and send via recorded or special delivery.

 

the best way to find out this new account number is if you paid by DD check your bank statements...it will be on there..if not use their statements.

Received a letter fron lewis this morning saying i have been selected for a great offer!!!! i can pay £442.28 of my apparent balance of my mystical personel loan and save £821.37!!! They reckon the totall balence is £1263.65 how could they justify accepting such a low amount, if it wasn`t for the fact i was conned into this loan i would probably pay that amount, i wonder if i get one for the HP agreement in the next few days.

 

Funny though when they have received my SAR and dispute letters they make me major reduction in amount offers, something strange going here maybe??.

I refused to pay by DD when i started seeing weird things going on with my acounts as they wouldn`t give me an explanation to why my hp balance was still so high and where this personel loan had come from, i made them come to me to collect the money at my convinience.

 

Ill get the CCA writen up and sent of soon as i can get all account numbers, i have two just need to find the original hp agreement one, unfortuantly i lost alot of paper work when split with my ex and sold house the original welcome papers where lost. (she saw fit to burn most of my paper work, including my tax returns and business books grrrr)

hopefully the link will send you to the CCA template:

 

http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/581-cca-request-letter

 

to be honest, I have been thinking about it, you really only intitially need to CCA the latest Loan agreement so save yourself the other £2 and wait for the SAR to come through with the rest of the documentation.

 

ex's can be like that...lol but at least you have your copies of the original two and you can compare them to those you get sent with the CCA.

 

thank you for the rep...there are other far more knowledgeable and experienced people on here that deserve rating but thank you
