so the iva people have basically said theyve spoken to them and the debt has been added to my account. i am not at all happy with this. i havnt actually seen any proof the own the debt or if there even is one. They cant just send me a bill out the blue and expect me to go oh ok.

 

So should i get in touch with them myself with the prove it letter? should i tell the iva not to pay them and not to phone?

 

i wont be intimidated by these **** takers!!!

 

hmmm my brain hurts

Hi, if you have any further problems with DCAs such as 1st Credit this is invaluable:

 

http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/business_leaflets/consumer_credit/oft664.pdf

 

You'll find that alot of DCAs will attempt to exploit a persons lack of knowledge as to their rights.

 

In respect of people turning up on your door, as the guidance outlines they are meant to arrange an appointment with you in advance of turning up - as such arriving an knocking on your door is a collector trying it on.

 

If they turn up say that you have no intention of speaking to them and have not arranged an appointment in accordance with the guidelines which they must follow. Any trouble the threat to them of phoning the police, or lodging a complaint with the OFT should work.


Advice offered by ENRON is without prejudice and is for your judgement as to whether to take it. You should seek the assistance or hire of a solicitor or other paid professional if in doubt.

Have you requested a copy of the CCA from CapOne at any time?

 

If you have not, then ask Freds for a copy.

Rather than CCA them, are there any charges you could reclaim on this account. Reclaiming the charges makes the debt go away as asking for the CCA just goes round in circles for years.

im sure there are charges yes. Ihave been paying them for roughly two years on a dmp and the debt has gone up rather than down. i have told the dmp people to close the account. i sent cap 1 a letter offering £5 a mont, which was a bit more than i the dmp were paying them. They ignored the first one then after i sent it again hey sent me this:

 

cap1letter001-1.jpg

 

 

This seems odd seeing as i was offering them money!! so i sent them the your not getting a sig letter!! then i recieved the dc leter. i get the impression they were planning to sell it on anyway and wanted a sig:mad:

Also i havnt sent them a cca yet. someone else told me to tak them to court:confused: o also i sent fred a CPR31 request which has been ignored.

 

thanks for the comments:)

hi zara,

what CPR did u send 31.16? what did u ask for? have u followed up with a reminder?

as the guys have said a CCA rqst is prob worth doing its only £1 plus recd del.

also as jogs points out finding where u are on charges is essential so if u dont have the statements urself it might be worth a SAR to the original creditors regstd address with £10 if possible. this will provide the statements required and cud also throw up other misdemeanours on their part.

DX asked when this debt, presumably a cred card was taken out as well?

yeah it was 31.16. i think:

 

I write with regards to the above account with your organisation.

 

I respectfully request that you provide me by return a copy of the credit agreement which bears my signature. I require this as i have reason to believe that there may be discrepancies within the agreement which may leave it improperly executed. Additionally I require the underwriting sheet or other document showing any commissions paid to you by the broker or by you to the broker. I also believe I was mis-sold ppi.

 

obviously if the agreement is improperly executed i would be entitled to ask the court to consider the agreement and make a declaration of the rights of parties to the agreement.

 

I must stress this request is NOT made pursuant to section 78 Consumer Credit Act 1974 but is made pursuant to the Civil Procedure Rules ( Pre action protocols and Part 31.16) and therefore unsigned copy will not suffice, only a copy of the original contract in its unaltered form will suffice in these circumstances

 

Please confirm if you still hold a copy of my signed agreement and that you will provide me with this document.

 

I do not view this as an unreasonable request given that by supplying the document which i have asked for it will allow me to assess if my case has merit and will help to resolve matters possibly without the need to involve the court and will undoubtedly save costs on both sides

 

I look forward to your reply and would ask for a response by 4pm on 21/09/2009

 

 

Regards

 

I havnt sent them a reminder (?) i have a cca waiting to post out on monday (pay day :D) i ased the dmp company for all the statements which should have been sent to them. which they havnt supplied so i think maybe i wil sar them :D or should i just sar cap 1? yeah its a credit card as far as i can remeber it was around feb 2007 i took it out.
