    • 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 received a letter out the blue from clarity yesterday notifying me of debt they were instructed to collect for cabot financial (europe) ltd for £4258.52. Not thinking i called clarity to find out what the debt was for and who cabot where, as i'd never heard of them, to be informed that it was for a barclaycard debt. I was given the account number and I called barclaycard and was told that this account was sold onto cabot 24th Aug 2004. I contacted cabot and asked why I never been contacted about this debt being bought by them, as it's been nearly 5 years, to be told we've written to you 15 times. Not one letter has been received until yesterday at this address informing us of th change over and we have been here 6 yrs. But the worst part of this is that when I contacted barclaycard to ask how much the original debt was they told me it was £2,705. I thought I was already paying this debt off as I already had another debt with barclays that i have been paying for the last 5 yrs and is just about finished, but now to find out the cabot have for nearly 5 yrs been adding the same rate of interest onto the amount as was in the original barclaycard agreement and clarity telling me i only have 2 yrs to pay this off and they want £177 per month or the are looking to send in agents or put a charging order on the house I don't mind paying if I owe the debt but can anybody give me some advice as to what to do as this can't be fair

This could very well be Statute Barred or at the very least unenforceable.

 

Send a CCA request to Clarity http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/581-cca-request-letter and a SAR to Barclaycard http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/576-subject-access-request-debt-a-dca

 

The CCA will determine whether it's enforceable and the SAR will show when the last payment was made & whether you can reclaim any unfair charges.

i spoke to barclaycard and the last payment they received from me was 25th march 04 and other than that all they could tell me was that cabot bought the debt 11th august 04. Last night i checked my experian credit report and i had a cabot financial uk listed but the default was dated 1/7/2004 and updated 24/5/2009 with the default as been listed "you failed to keep up your credit agreement and have not responded satifactorily to requests to bring your payments up to date, so the credit agreement has ended, but there is no listing on my credit report of barclaycard just cabot who never owned this debt on the date mentioned i'm confused can you help

Send the letters above, they'll help gather the information you need to get to the bottom of this.

When you get the CCA back if you scan it, remove any identifying details & post it up here we'll have a look at it for you to see if it is enforceable. ;)

I've just realised that you are already paying Barclays for another debt. In that case the SAR 'will kill two birds with one stone' because you will also get information back about that debt too, so not only will we be able to discover whether that is enforceable or not but again you'll be able to determine any unfair charges you can reclaim.

Barclays & Barclaycard are 2 separate companies. Very easy for a consumer to see them both as the same and believe they made an arrangement to cover both.

 

May be worth sending SAR's to both Barclaycard & Cabot. If Barclaycard knew your address 5 years ago, you having lived there for 6 years, Cabot should have been writing to that address.

 

The CRA entry is correct, Barclaycard have to delete their entry at the point of sale and Cabot have to replicate in their own name what was true. That does not change the termination question already raised.

Don't panic. Just send off the letters and wait for their reply. In your defence Cabot and Clarity would have to give a good reason to a court why they have not initiated court action sooner. It may not be statute-barred but the company should have addressed and enforced the breach as soon as was reasonable otherwise they may not realise the full benefit of the contract.
