    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • 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

Hi all

 

i was hoping someone could give me some advise about what to do about my Vanquis bank credit card. i also have a capital one card that i am having problems with. see here for capital one thread http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/capital-one/208671-being-harrased-capital-one.html#post2280351

 

as mentioned above, i have 2 card's... capitaL one & vanquis. until recently i had managed both of these cards fine. then along came the credit crunch & a 50% drop in my self employed income (no one using taxi's).

as a result of this drop in income, i have not been able to make any payments on either card for 3 months now.

i am also having problems with other debts including council tax and rent arrears, i have addressed the problems with council tax and rent first as they can mean jail and homelessness.

 

i have been receiving... correction ... been getting bombarded with phone calls from both companys, foolishly, i did speak to vanquis on one occasion (3 weeks ago) and agreed to pay them £75 per month (usual minimum payment + £25) although i have NOT made the 1st of these £75 payments due last week. i simply cannot afford it and only agreed to making it under duress. but having read through many threads on here I am now wondering if either CCA is valid.

 

am i correct in assuming that my 1st step with Vanquis is to send a CCA request, & the phone harrasment letter?

 

any advise greatfully accepted

 

Mick

Yes, The first step is to send a CCA request to both companies. You will need to enclose a postal order for £1 with each request. They have 12 days plus 2 to respond.

Yes. For the time being it would be wise to make token payments too, even if it's only a couple of quid each. That way it will show that you are not ignoring them or trying to run away from the debt, just that times are hard as is with a lot of people.

Can you remove identifying information and post the app. form on here. I assume that the pages of terms etc and not actually forming any part of the App. Form, so it is unlikely to be enforceable.

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

Hi Mick,

 

As in all requests made, they have probably complied with your request.

 

But there is no way in hell they will have one withyour signature on.

 

Stop paying them and ignore everything except for Court papers which you will defend.

This seems to be becoming the norm for CCA requests under s78.

 

The ccc's seem to have come up with a new idea, that they can send a blank agreement from the time, fill in a new one themselves or type up a new contarct, supposedly relating to that time.

 

The statute relating to a "True Copy" dates back to the 1800's when obviously there were no photocopiers or other devices. This meant that any copy had to be hand coppied as the only means of supplying a copy at that time. Also this is the obvious reason for there not being a requirement for signature or date. This is what the ccc's are relying on.

 

The office of fair trading has a take on this, in that it must be a "true copy" and not some reconstruction of what the agreement may have looked like. What the agreement may have looked like, is exactly what we are getting and we should not be accepting this.

 

In short, the intention is that you should receive a copy of your actual agreement ( technology has moved on ) and this is the view of the OFT. CCC'S are using this old terminology in order to circumvent sending out a real copy. The signature box and date are in reality, just a throwback to the 1800's, hand copying.

hi all

i have now recieved a letter from a company called impact (vanquis's in-house collection??) inviting me to contact them and make an offer of monthly installments. it says that interest and charges will be frozen if i make this agreement.

i am concerned that because i took this card out after the new regs came in that i will come unstuck if i don't sort it now.

as mentioned above, the reply i had to CCA request was a blank application form and some terms & conditions.

any advise as to whether i should try and form an agreement with them as offered in this latest letter?

Cheers

Mick

hi all

 

8 months since i had any hassle from these clowns... until today

 

i received a letter from a company called Cabot

this is the front of that letter

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/ac242/MickMackPaddyWack/09072010197.jpg

and this is the back

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/ac242/MickMackPaddyWack/09072010198.jpg

 

enclosed with the above letter was also a photocopy of a letter addressed to me allegedly from vanquis (which i have never seen before)

that letter is here

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/ac242/MickMackPaddyWack/09072010200.jpg

 

 

am i correct in assuming that my next move it to write to Cabot, informing them that this account with vanquis is in dispute and that vanquis have breached CCA regs in selling it on to a 3rd party. and also that this 3rd party would also be in breach of CCA regs if they where to make any attempt to try and collect / harrass me for this alleged debt.

if this is so, could anyone point me to a template letter for this.

 

Cheers

Mick

Hi Mick

 

I have recently issued legal proceedings against Vanquis Bank for PPI, default and late payment charges and harassment. They have yet to defend.

 

They have already admitted that I never requested PPI and offered to refund it but with no interest, obvioulsy they have been charging me interest at 50% so we will see what the court makes of this, if it ever gets that far of course! :wink:
