    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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

Hello all

 

This is my first post so I hope I'm posting in the right place - bear with me please!

 

Got into difficulties with Abbey in 2007. Owed about 2 and a half grand on loan, 600 pounds in overdraft.

 

I went to CAB who set up payments with them of 51 per month loan, 18 per month overdraft. Got a default notice from Abbey and they both went to a dca.

 

Had PPI on loan and claimed back all charges as I had been led to believe it was compulsory. The 7 hundred odd pounds was taken off the outstanding loan balance.

 

In September last year they stopped my direct debits without telling me why. After numerous phone calls I found out they had recalled the debts and were selling them on. Don't know why because I kept to both agreements and intended to continue till both debts were paid in full.

 

Was contacted by Cabot Financial (uk) Ltd to continue paying the overdraft. Set up DD for 18 per month as before.

 

No sign of loan since September 08. Could not pay over counter as account closed. Went to CAB again no luck either. Informed Ombudsman who got in touch with them and Abbey phoned me to give me a phone number to recommence payments. Said they would give me 100 pounds for the inconvenience.

 

Phoned the number but was told I couldn't make payments as the loan had again been sold on but couldn't tell me who to or when I would be informed! So back to square one!

 

Have decided to CCA and SAR them once the 100 is in my bank.

I have a feeling they will have a copy of my credit agreement as I used my copy to claim on the PPI.

 

However I have looked at my copy of the default notice and it seems very vague. There is no mention of the bank, the outstanding balance (or any balance for that matter!) and says to pay within 14 days of the default notice, not the service date.

 

I have defaults for both the loan and the o/d on my files.

 

I have offered Cabot 100 pounds on an outstanding balance of 278 as f/fs with the condition that they remove the default. No reply yet.

 

What can I do about the loan? I'll have to CCA the bank as I don't know who the dca is and don't know how long it will be till I do. I've already been waiting since last September. Do you think I have a chance of claiming all my payments back bar the outstanding arrears at the time of default?

 

Sorry its very long-winded. Very confused at the moment and not sure what to do next. Any help will be gratefully received. Thanks.

As I said, nobody is demanding anything at the moment! Since Sep 2008 no one has asked for payment. Abbey are saying its been passed on but can't tell me who to. Just want rid of the defaut on my credit history. From the default letter I received it looks like it is invalid. What should I do now about the £565 remaining debt and the default?

if you only owe them 565 i would suggest you dispute the account but offer without prejudice an ex gratia payment of 565 in full PROVIDED that within 7 days of payment they remove all adverse data from your CRA files and within 7 days of payment record the account as settled in full with the CRA's

I don't have £565 to settle the debt. If the default notice is invalid and they went ahead and closed the accout, do I still have to pay the £565? I thought an invalid default notice meant that they could claim nothing but the outstanding arrears at the time of the default notice? Is there any legislation anywhere to back this up? Also I intend to CCA and SAR the dca when I find out who they are. Would the invalid default notice have any effect with the dca even if they could find the original agreement?

sorry i misread and thought that you main aim was to get the default off your cra.

 

if the default nbtice was followed up by a termination letter or demand for the full payment then yes the termination would be unlawful (assuming you did not then keep paying) and all they would be entitled to is the arrears at the time of the termination but you need to confirm that you have accepted the unlawful termination

I'm afraid I did keep paying - £51 per month to a dca called Equidebt until the September when Abbey took the debt back. Apparently it has been sold on to another one, just waiting to hear. Should I carry on with my intended CCA and SAR when they contact me? Where do I stand now regarding the debt and the default notice? Thanks for your help by the way. Much appreciated. :-)
