    • 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

MBNA write off 10 500 pounds

Hi

 

I had an Abbey National credit card, taken out in the late 1990's. MBNA took over the Scabbey Abbey credit card business sometime after that. I defaulted and the debt was passed to Lowells' DCA. The debt is around 10 500 pounds (ten thousand five hundred).

 

Lowell's kept chasing even though I have worked and lived abroad for many years. Recently, i tried a new tactic, I asked Lowell's for a true copy of the original CCA with Abbey and paid them a quid to do so.

 

various letters arrived, saying sorry it's taking so long, they had to go back to MBNA, then Abbey. The last letter arrived saying that Abbey did not keep records from that far back and therefore there was no CCA and Lowell's would no longer contact me.

 

However, the debt is still registered against my name with the CRA's.

 

Is there anyway that I can now apply to have the debt removed from my CRA files? Alternatively, after how many years will the debt be removed from my file?

Hi

 

I had an Abbey National credit card from around the late 1990's. It transferred to MBNA when they took over Abbey's credit card business. After defaulting on the card the alleged debt was sold to Lowell's a DCA.

 

They chased for 10 500 pounds (ten thousand five hundred pounds) for several years, although i was abroad and they could not go down the County Court route.

 

Recently, I did a CCA request and they wrote back to say they had contacted Abbey for a true copy of the original CCA.

 

There was a follow up letter saying it was taking longer than expected and then recently i got a final letter from Lowell's. They said that Abbey never kept records that old and they didnot have a copy of the original CCA.

 

On this basis, Lowell's have said they will not write to me or contact me again, so effectively the 10 500 quid ir written off.

 

Although delighted by this and allthough now living abroad, I note my crfedit reference files still note the debt. is it possible to get it removed?

OK, thanks for taking the time to respond.

 

No real problem as I live and work abroad, although it would be nice to clear up the credit file prior to any return.

 

I find it a strange system, when they have no CCA but still register on a credit ref. agency file.

I would stop all communication with them, as should you return to the UK they might start recovery claiming you have been in contact, and the debt therefore wont be Statute Barred.

I'm moving abroad soon and just CCA'd MBNA. How can I let MBNA know this so they do not start any court procedings or harass my mother who will be forwarding my mail?

They have 12+2 days to supply the CCA so maybe you will get it before moving abroad.

 

In that case you can see whether you can dispute it and whether or not it is unenforceable and write to them accordingly, using template letters.

 

Either way, they cannot touch you abroad as there only line of obtaining payment from you is from the County court and that does not apply when you are away.

 

having said that, Egg knowing that I was abroad did do a County Court summons that they won by default. As soon as I found out, I had it set aside.

 

What I suggest is that your mother just forwards all your post. Then you can see what dirty tricks they are up to. In the meantime write and tell them you are going abroad. If staying away for more than 6 years, the case will become statute barred, so no need to personally contact them.

Hi

 

Just interested, have they removed it from your credit file?

 

I have their acknowledgement that they do not hold my CCA, wondered how to get it removed from my file

 

Should I offer F&F? Realistically they should snatch my hand off!!

Don't, for goodness sake, send them a F+F offer! If you have not already done so, use a template dispute letter. I did that and they wrote back saying they had closed the account. You should do the same.

 

Unfortunately, they will leave it on the CRA files. If you look over some threads on here, there are also details on how to write to them in an attempt to get it removed.

 

Look at this thread and the links it contains:

If it's a none complaint CCA try something like this:

 

Account In Dispute

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Re: my request under s78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

Thank you for your recent letter sent to me dated **DATE**, the contents of which are noted. However, the reply received by me does not fulfil your requirements under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

The Act demands that I be supplied with a true copy of any properly executed credit agreement that exists in relation to the above account. I may ask for this on demand providing that a fee of £1.00 is paid. This fee was sent with my original letter, dated **DATE**. Upon receipt of the original request the specified account legally entered into disputed status.

 

My request remains outstanding. The supplied documentation does not constitute a true copy of a credit agreement and that which you sent doesn't even contain all the prescribed terms and is not 'properly executed'. The statements sent do not correspond to the amount stated in your earliest correspondence and therefore they do not satisfy the requirement to supply me with a statement of account.

 

As you will know, under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, a judge is not permitted to make any enforcement order unless the creditor can provide a true signed copy of the original credit agreement. This means that unless you can produce such an agreement, this alleged debt is not enforceable in law.

 

You had until **12 days DATE** to provide me with the true copy I requested. After that date you entered into default of my request. Whilst the account is in dispute, you are not permitted to ask for any payment, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you. Furthermore, whilst the dispute remains, you are not entitled to charge any interest on the account, nor make any further charges to the account. Additionally, you are not entitled to register any information on this account with any credit reference agencies (or any third party).

 

To register information with a credit reference agency, you must have written consent from the data subject to collate and share such information. This consent is given in the form of a signed credit agreement, so until you produce such an agreement, you may not do this.

 

The requirement for consent to share data is a clear requirement of the Data Protection Act 1998. Any such attempts to share my data without my consent will be met with a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office.

 

The time limits, which are laid down in the Consumer Credit (Prescribed Periods for Giving Information) Regulations 1983 are clear. You must supply an executed credit agreement within 12 working days of a proper CCA request. If you fail to comply with a legitimate request the account enters a default situation. . You entered into a default on **12 Days DATE**

 

Therefore you have 7 days from receiving this letter to contact me with your intentions to resolve this matter which is now a formal complaint, otherwise your conduct will be reported to the Office of Fair Trading, the Financial Ombudsman and Trading Standards. Any investigation undertaken by them may affect your ability to hold a consumer credit license in the future.

 

Take further note that continued telephone calls after the receipt of a request not to call may constitute a criminal offence under Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003.

 

Communicate in writing and ONLY in writing, your telephone calls will NOT be answered.

 

To sum up, I will not be making any further payments to you until you provide me with the document I have requested. Should you not have any signed credit agreement in relation to this alleged debt, please confirm this in writing to me.

 

 

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

Some time ago, I posted various threads on here about my sucess in writing off some debts.

 

Amongst them was 10K written off by Lowells due to their lack of Abbey National CCA.

 

4900 written off by CapQuest for an Egg loan due to a previous dispute with the OC.

 

Additionally, several thousand written off by Egg due to unenforceable CCAs.

 

The total write off was over 20K and you can check my thteads and posts on here.

 

I made a donation to CAG as a ressult of the incredible help that I received here.

 

Recently,I read all the letters and emails I received, where thje institutions tried to intimidate me and get money from me prior to my success in defeating them.

 

Is it not unreasonable, therefore, for me to claim compensation from them, or woud that be too greedy?

 

I recall reading that 8 pounds an hour is the correct rate.

 

Is this so? How would I go about demandung this without openinga aa new mess??
