    • 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

Hi all,

 

I've only just found this forum, I wish I'd found it earlier!

 

I'm looking for some advice. In the mid 90's I had an overdraft with Natwest for £2000 that somehow got converted into a personal loan, though I don't remember this happening. I have always paid the monthly payment required but about 18 months ago I was shocked to discover that interest had been accruing and the debt is now over £12000.

 

Now Natwest are demanding full payment or else they'll take me to court!

 

I don't know what to do now, I've got no problem with paying back what I owe but the interest is ridiculous and unfair. This whole situation has made me ill. :(

 

I've contacted the CAB who've tried to be helpful but don't seem to know what I can do about it.

 

Does anyone here have some advice?

 

Cheers

Are your accounts held at Telford by any chance?

Hi,

 

I do have some letters from CMS Telford going back to 2002. Since then it's moved to Unidebt Collection in Telford, now it's moved again to Morecroft in Stockport

 

Cheers.

My advice would be to forward a section 77 CCA request ASAP.

Take a look, you'll see that Telford are masters at creative accounting.

Thanks for the info', much appreciated. I'll look into it and get onto the CAB. This situation's gone on for far too long, with me being in the dark for most of it. I've had enough!
