    • Is that your name on the Lloyd's Pharmacy label? If it is, I suggest you use a program like Paint to obscure it.   You should be able to upload a file with multiple pdf files if you read our guide - click on the word upload.   HB
    • Ok so the charging order or restriction remains in force, no time limit.   I'm back now to finding a CS who understands that the restriction merely requires them to notify the council AFTER the house has been sold [as per post no. 17] and can explain that to the buyer's solicitor so the buyers are reassured and proceed with the sale. I can then pursue the case with the council when they receive notification of the sale as no doubt that will fire up the case again after being dormant for so long.   If anyone can recommend a CS they've used before in similar circumstances or one they know has experience of this I'd be grateful. Thanks
    • Well it seems slamdunk to me. Not only that but they refer specifically to the original order and that they ask you to sign and "amended order". The only other explanation is maybe they have received it from you. Could that be a possibility? I think I would initially drop them an informal line – by email and by letter saying that despite the amended order which you agree to on XXX date, you now see that the money which has been paid out you has had the full £850 deducted. With a please explain why this has happened and why the terms of the amended order you understood had been agreed had not been. Suggest that you send that after them immediately and will see what comes back. Maybe it is simply some misunderstanding and there is no point jumping the gun and started to issue threats if there is some innocent explanation. It certainly sounds a bit strange

    • 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

Right then guys, normally I'm dealing with these things for various family members, but this one is actualy mine:

 

I've had dealings with most DCA's over the years, but never with this bunch! Has anyone had and dealings with them? Are they the usual pond life/ shower of S**t? What are their tactics..... same as normal?? :rolleyes:

 

I see that CrapPot are listed as having "instructed" this bunch of muppets....... do I take it that Clarity are just yet another desk in the CrapPot office?? :rolleyes:

 

Now I haven't had any debt letters for myself for at least the last 3 years but these people say I owe them money. As you can see it doesn't give any details of where it originated etc and so I can't say whether I owe the money or not lol. :confused:

 

For that reason I've got a strongly worded prove it letter all ready and waiting to be sent to them, but I just thought I would pop up on here and see if I can feel them out a bit first, so I'm going in fully loaded and ready for battle :D

 

The letter I've received is as follows:

Hi and Welcome

 

I would send of my prove it letter, its up to them to prove the debt is there and that it is theirs to collect. Who knows you may even get a free CCA from them (wouldn't hold your breath mind you.):)

Never dealt with them personally but there is plenty of mention of them in various forums, mostly in the payday loans market. From what I've seen they appear to pretty easy to deal with - I guess because they know they don't usually have a leg to stand on as far as the law goes.

Yeah I've created a lovely little prove it letter for them which I will send off on Monday if I get time/have the inclination. I'm not particularly worried about this bunch of muppets :rolleyes:

 

I'll keep you all posted on any developments though :D

I had dealings with them last year. I have to say, that out of all the DCAs I have dealt with they were far an away the most pleasant. In the end I did a F & F with them, for an amount that I was happy with (~ 11%). Knowing what I know now, I think I could have fought it, but even so I'm not unhappy with the result.

 

Which ought to be a lesson to all DCAs - by treating me decently and not trying to bully and threaten, they actually got some money. The rest of them haven't (and won't) got anything at all (Stat Barred now in any case).

Hi, Cabot Financial are another Debt Collection Agency so they will have bought a debt from the OC or even another DCA and then passed it on to this Clarity bunch.

 

It's probably worth while starting your own thread and keeping it updated, that way you can get the advice needed as your case progresses :)

 

The Prove it letter is:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

You have contacted me/us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself/ourselves.

 

I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).

 

I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.

 

Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.

 

I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.

 

I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.

 

I/we look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

Hope this helps.

Cheers

UF

Had a letter from clarity today. Very short just saying that because of the information contained within my letter to them they have passed it back to their client. Might be hearing from CrapPot soon then :rolleyes:
