    • 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.
    • Ok 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

This is my first post, and I could really use some help!

 

Some years ago I had a Barclays current account, but I stopped using the account some time in 2003, and haven't used it since. I recall writing to ask for the account to be closed, but moved at around the same time (June 2003), so forgot all about it. My mother was still living at my old address, and in helping her move out recently, I found a huge pile of letters she'd never passed on to me. It appears I left the account slightly overdrawn (by about £40, it appears) so it was never closed, and Barclays have continued adding interest since then. It now stands at just under £500 overdrawn, and Barclays have now removed the overdraft facility and are charging stupid amounts of interest, and are demanding full repayment with threats of legal action.

 

I'm convinced the debt is statute barred, as I know I stopped using it a few months before I moved in June 2003. I duly sent a letter to that effect and asked for proof otherwise. They have responded with copy statements going back to August 2004, and letter stating that the money is still owed, but not on what basis.

 

The statements reveal several things which I believe they are relying on to prove that the cause of action is much later than I believe it to be:

 

September 2004 - a payment for 'card protection' and an unknown payment with just a number beside it

December 2004 - a payment to 'debt management' for a graduate loan I had but I settled in full in June 2004

August 2004 - a further payment for card protection.

 

I have no recollection of signing up for card protection - and if offered, I would have refused, as I don't think it's particularly useful. The debt management payment I think I can deal with, as I think I have squirrelled away somewhere a letter confirming the account was settled in full. The random payment confuses me, as I have no idea what this is!

 

There is also a refund of £22 for a reserve fee in November last year - they don't ever appear to have charged the fee and according to their letters, it was something they would have added automatically. Upon speaking to their collections department this morning they appear to be under the impression that the refund they have added to the account constitutes a payment from myself and thus my acknowledgement of the debt! :lol:

 

I'm not sure where to go from here: clearly they are relying on these charges as proof that the debt accrued later but as far as I am concerned, none of these payments was authorised by me to my knowledge and thus the account was not in use from somewhere around mid-2003, and should be statute barred.

 

I need to send them a letter disputing the debits on the account, is this possible without acknowledging the debt - I'm not entirely sure when I stopped using it, so it might not be statute barred just yet.

 

Any advice would be most appreciated - I can't afford to pay this right now as I'm on a DMP, and would really rather it went away!

surely the crux of this is YOUR last fanacial transaction NOT theirs.

 

i'd just fire off the statute barred letter anyhow.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your reply :)

 

They've had the Statute barred letter, their response was the statements!

 

Should I just write to them and ask them to explain how they feel this proves the account is not statute barred? The letter they sent basically says that they understand that the last payment I made towards the debt was over six years ago but that the account is still £493 overdrawn and requires paying. Oh, and that they hope their explanation was helpful!

 

There's no charges, per se, just these debits I don't recognise and a whole bunch of interest. It's well within the £1000 overdraft limit I had with them, so I only ever got charged the interest, and no charges were added as I hadn't gone over that.

I know this is meant for DCA's but you can edit to suit, and mention you have made a formal complaint about them to the OFT, & FOS.

i would call their bluff on this one

 

charges that THEY have added to the account to extend its life will not cut the mustard

 

i would write once more to this effect confirming that these three transactions were not made endorsed or authorised by you and you have serious reservatiions as to why they have been put there

 

Tell them also that you dispute these transactions and charges

 

Tell them that you are sure enough of your position that you will happily defend any action they care to bring and you will not be answering any further correspondence other than service of summons on this matter

To re-start the limitation clock YOU must make a payment or YOU must acknowledge the debt in writing. As you have done neither, then this is undoubtedly statute barred.

 

It does not matter a jot as to what they do with the account. You could send a letter back stating:

 

I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE ANY DEBT TO YOU

 

I acknowledge receipt of your letter, the contents of which have been read but NOT understood. The Statute of Limitations Act clearly states that if no payment has been made by ME or a letter has not been sent acknowledging any debt, then the 6 year limitation begins from the last time I made payment or wrote admitting liability.

 

The last transactions on my account were initiated by Barclays - this in no way affects the statute barred status of this account.

 

I enclose a copy of my previous letter regarding this matter. If you do not understand the contents, can I suggest you seek legal advice?

 

Any further correspondance on this matter will be met by my charges of £12 per letter in response and £9.95 per hour for research. You acknowledge these charges should you send any more demands.

 

Yours.

 

Or something along those lines anyway.....


:)I am not an expert, but I can give good advice about Brighthouse:)

 

Am learning more and more about DCA's too :)

 

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.

 

<------If you think I have been helpful, please feel free to tip my scales - remember to put your CAG name though!

but........ to truly fillet their donkey and leave them no wriggle room in coujrt when they apply for this ill fated SD hearing then for the sake of a stamp it would pay to be able to disprove any suggestion from them that they wouldnt have proceeded if you had told them so@

 

nothing wrong with what you said - its just my style to have an answer for everything that might crop up!
