    • I'm aware there are some grammatical and reference errors but the post expired before I could fix. I'd really like to know if I've made valid points or not. Thanks.
    • Another thing, they say they have photographic evidence of the entry and exit times, but have not included it in the SAR. If they have photos shouldn't they provide them in the SAR? And if they don't have them now, how can they prove anything?    Should I ask OBS to produce the photos?
    • Is this any better?  I've resigned myself to losing. Admittedly, I don't quite know what I'm doing. I just hope I get a remote hearing, that should save me some embarrassment.      1) The Claimants pleaded case is that the Defendant entered into an agreement with Provident subsequently assigned to Vanquis Bank Limited under account reference xxx.    2) It is admitted I have had financial dealings with Provident in the past. However, have no recollection of the alleged reference number the claimant refers to.   3) In February 2019 I 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.    4) On the 21 June 2019 the Claimant sent a response which enclosed a reconstituted copy of an agreement, default notice, notice of assignment Provident to Vanquis, notice of assignment Vanquis to Lowell. [EXHIBIT x, x & x].   5) On 30/07/19, I received a claims form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £369.84. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £369.84 in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no xxxx  pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA).   6) Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Provident to Vanquis. The claimant states a further assignment to them occurred on 12/06/2017 with notice given.    7) It is denied notice of assignment from Provident to Vanquis and subsequently Vanquis to Lowell were ever received.    😎 The claimant states documents were received at both addresses. The claimant doesn’t appear able to confirm my address and therefore cannot say with certainty said documents were received. Furthermore, the client did not issue said documents and therefore cannot prove delivery.     9) It is denied any communication took place with myself and Vanquis Bank Limited. Any alleged legal assignment to part of the “Fresh Start” initiative had not been informed. I have no previous knowledge.   10) Under the consumer credit act 2006, until debts have been repaid, there is an obligation to send statements and notices to the debtor at prescribed intervals at no more than 12 months. The statement should explain the money borrowed, money paid, interest in all cases and the outstanding amount. Consequences of failing to make repayments and the opportunity of making minimum payments should be informed. The Claimant has submitted a statement of accounts dated March 2019. This having followed my request for a credit consumer agreement. It is denied this document and any such required statement of accounts required under section 77A during the alleged agreement were ever received.   11) The claimant states that a default notice was issued on 18thJanuary 2017. The payment date requested by Vanquis Bank Limited on said document is  28thFebruary 2017. The formal Notice of Default that was accompanying this letter displays a requested payment date, 28thFebruary 2019. (Exhibit x, x)   12) I argue that this is not in fact a COPY of an original default notice, that they state was issued during February 2017, but that this is a fabricated version of a default notice created by Lowell. Either way the default notice was not issued by the assigned creditor (Vanquis).   13) It is therefore contended that the original creditor failed to serve a valid Default Notice pursuant to section 87(1) Service of a notice on the debtor or in accordance with section 88 (a “default notice ”) is necessary before the creditor or owner can become entitled, by reason of any breach by the debtor of a regulated agreement.   14) The Claimant states a default notice was not required. If there is a default in payments during the fixed term a default notice must be issued. The Claimant states they were informed a default notice was sent on 18thJanuary. The Claimants case relies upon being informed and does not constitute fact.   15) It is denied a default notice was ever received.    16) It is admitted I responded to the Claimant’s pre-action protocol letter addressed in my name. I indicated I did not know if I owed the debt. I indicated as such having no recollection of affiliation with Vanquis nor Lowell. A default for the allege debt appearing on my credit file only November 2019.    17) I understand that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct or bad debts which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed and which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income.   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.   18) Under Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) Where the claim includes a money claim, a defendant shall be taken to require that any allegation relating to the amount of money claimed be proved unless he expressly admits the allegation. Therefore, it is expected that the Claimant be required to prove the allegation that the money is owed as claimed.
    • I’m still thinking about this PayPal but only because ive been reading other forums and them saying that PayPal sells the debt to other companies and then they chase you for it .   Here are the other debts I have below and I’m still paying them all but now really struggling with it as I’m now full carer and no tidy income. None of these have I failed to pay yet to date and ive never been to court or anything and no criminal record ive always been clean & tidy and always paid things without fail but due to circumstances already said about ive now got deeper in owing more and just really struggling now and cant afford all the payments I’m paying plus then all the interest that keeps going back on them.   Nationwide building society credit card  £4,400 Nationwide building society overdraft £345 Capital 1  £2,594 Argos credit/store card £1,904   the wife also has   Nationwide credit card £1,600 Argos credit/store card  £1,875 Capital 1  £1,280   Its the Nationwide bank I’m really wanting to keep sweet as ive been with them since I was like 17 and I’m 50 now plus I use it for all direct debits and car insurance / life insurance etc etc plus I rely on the overdraft from month to month.

    • 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

Its for a debt with bt,long story i changed supplier was told by bt that my contract was up in afew weeks so went ahead with switch.Then found out that my fone line rental was for 12 mths but my broadband was a 18 mth contract and this debt is for ending broadband contract early,contacted bt and was told that as it had been passed onto dc that there was nothing they could do.Even though this is all there fault.i thought i was doing the right thing by phoning them to check first but obviously i was wrong.

I'm only owning up to pay this debt because they've threatened to add on almost £70 in charges etc and can't afford to allow this debt to get any bigger.I've only ever spoken to them once on the phone to dispute this debt.But i can't see anyway of getting out of it.

Why don't you send all your debtors a CCA letter.

 

Then the one's that can't produce a CCA don't pay them, the one's that do send one check the CCA first to make sure it is what they say it is and was signed/dated by you, and if it is the real thing then offer only small payments.

 

Chances are that if you have 10 debts to pay off 7 of them will not have a CCA or one that can be produced in court.

 

Will save you loads of money in the long run.

OK

 

Don't ring them anymore... make sure everything is in writing. How has the DCA been communicating with you?

 

Do you have a contract for the account? Who is threatening to add on the charges and on what basis? Are these charges set out in a contract?

 

Before you write any letters, make sure you are in full command of all the facts about what you owe and what they can do. Don't give in to being bullied:)

Thanks anyway,I've steered well clear of credit cards and the one credit company i do owe i'm on top of my debts with them.

Its debts from other addresses i've lived at over the last five years which are coming back to haunt me most i don't even owe them the money they say i do.

One more thing i've noticed recently that i've severne trent water have applied a debt on my credit file which is for an old address,i wasn't living there at the time they say the debt is for so i'm in the process of disputing are they allowed to do this,they put this on my file in 2006.Can i do anything about this to get it off?

I phoned them because the letter they sent me stated it was for bt and as i wasn't aware of a debt with them i wanted to know what the hell it was for.

Had a very quick conversation with them disputed this debt and told them i'd be contacting bt myself.i did and was told by bt they would contact the dc for me to arrange a payment plan.Didn't hear anything for afew weeks then got a letter off a solicitor saying if i didn't pay with'n 7 days they would seek further costs and would take me to court.

Not sure on what to do next.

ok lets try and get a lid on this.

 

no dca can add charges or interest fullstop!

 

can you give a full breakdown/story on this debt with BT,

you indicate its by default because you cancelled BT BB early?

thats not true either.

 

if its wescott and their in house sol, they take it with a pinch of salt.

please remember that NO DCA, nor their 'in-house' solicitor HAVE ANY LEGAL POWERS!!

I have no idea what the full brekdown of this debt is.

I got a final bill from bt for about 39.00 for calls made.Paid this.

Then heard nothing for about 3 months

Then got a letter from wescott saying i owed bt just under £200.So i phoned bt and the told me it was for bb rental for ending contract early,which worked out at around £30.00 a month.I ended the contract in feb,and the contract wasn't due to end until august so i've been charged 6 mths rental charges.
