hi guys. im new here and cant understand all those procedures...i think ive read too many...

 

here's the deal:

 

i have a credit card with HSBC (Mastercard). there is about 1250 quid on it with the 1300 limit. im in kind of difficult situation right now because my wife is 8 months pregnant and we're struggling a bit now. so i wanted to check if i can have this debt written off... credit card was taken in July 2006. the other thing is that they have raised my credit limit without agreeing that with me. at first i had 750, but now its 1300...

 

so, will somebody be king enough to explain me how to get that debt written off ? this would mean a lot to me and my wife.

 

Thanks

Hiya rudy691 and welcome to the HSBC forum :).

 

Much has been written about getting credit debt written off because of legal loopholes and yes it is possible under certain circumstances.

 

I think the general feeling is the banks deserve it because they have been and still are being such idiots but morally you have had this money and spent it so you should really pay it back even if its at a much reduced rate and on your terms not the banks.

 

So on that basis you need to send off a Consumer Credit Act section 78 letter, its letter "N" in this thread, suitably edited to your own circumstances.

see what they send back, post it up here and one of us will have a look :)

Hi Rudy,

 

The common address seems to be......

 

HSBC BANK PLC

8 CANADA SQUARE

LONDON

E14 5HQ

 

There are others too, a quick search for HSBC address in the search would help if you dont like this one!

 

As for the postal order, I left mine with no name on it and they sent me some completely inadequate useless CCA, so I would leave that part blank (If anyone knows better please do not hesitate to correct me)

 

Good luck, and be prepared for a lengthy battle!!

as hugh jeffort says leave the postal order blank. they may send it back anyway as they have returned cheques in the past...that way you can just cash it :)

Hi Rudy , welcome to the forum :)

 

To save Canada Square from having to forward it on I would send it direct to :

 

UK Data Protection Compliance

HSBC Bank plc

Griffin House

4-01, 41 Silver Street Head

Sheffield

S1 3GG

Time to send the call-up then rudy ... :)

 

CCA Call-up letter

Reference ....... (your letter of xx xxx xx)

I am disappointed that you have failed to respond to my request for a copy of my Credit Card agreement to which I am entitled under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (Sections 77−79). A copy of this letter is attached for your convenience.

I have previously enclosed a payment of £1.00 which represents the fee payable under the Consumer Credit Act.

I understand a copy of our credit agreement should be supplied within 12 working days.

I am sure you also understand that under the Consumer Credit Act creditors are unable to enforce an agreement if they fail to comply with a request for a copy of the agreement under these sections of the Act.

Failure to respond positively will be reported to the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Office of Fair Trading.

Yours faithfully

You could add :

"PLEASE NOTE that unless otherwise stated by yourselves and if the above documents are NOT provided, it will be CONFIRMED that you are unable to reproduce/provide in any way shape or form any copies of the above requested documents. You are reminded that you have a duty to inform me if you do not have the above documents. This is confirmed in High Court Law - Ezsias v Welsh Ministers - [2007] All ER (D) 65 (Dec) "

hi. ive send a message through the online banking. ive included the cca request text in full:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Re: Account Number: ----------------------

 

This letter is a formal request pursuant to s.78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I require you to provide me with a true copy of the credit agreement relating to the above account, together with any other documentation the Act requires you to provide.

 

I expect you to comply fully and properly with this request, within the statutory time limit. You are reminded that should you fail to comply with my request, the provisions of s.77(6) will apply.

 

Your attention is drawn to ss.5(2), 3(b),6 and 7 of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUTR).

 

I enclose a cheque in the sum of £1.00, which is the statutory fee. Note that these funds are not to be used for any other purpose.

 

If you are unable to comply fully and properly with this request, you should confirm this in writing at the earliest opportunity, and certainly within the statutory time limit for compliance, and return the fee.

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours faithfully

This is all done to confuse you IMHO, rudy - it's a pillar-to-post shuffle hoping you'll give up and go away ....

 

I would send the call-up to the original address (Data Protection Team ) wtih a covering letter saying that it is for them to contact any dept of theirs which is responsible ..... it is for them to produce the info you require, and that failure to comply within the next (?) days will result in a report to the Information Commissioner .

The time periods dont alter, you have submitted a legaly binding document to the bank so in the case of a Data Protection Act SAR they have 40 days to comply from your SAR and in the case of a Consumer Credit Act s78 letter they have 12+2 days to comply from the date of your letter.
