    • 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

Hi all

 

Have been paying Cabot 18 pounds per month on Abbey o/d. Balance now about 275 pounds.

 

Sent the F&F offer of 100 pounds, bearing in mind they've already had nearly 100 off me.

 

They won't take any less than 175. My daughter has left home recently and I am considerable worse off. I said I will have to reduce my monthly payments to 5 pounds. They will only accept 10.

 

I told them they will have to take me to court then because I can't afford any more.

 

As its an overdraft I can't CCA them so what can I do?

you could send abbey a sar to reclaim back any charges on the account.

 

if you need to reduce the monthly payment , then do it whether they accept it or not. you can only pay what you can afford. if you have already told them this then just make the altertnative payment

They will bloody accept whatever you offer. Do these idiots have any legal rights to be collecting money from you anyway.

 

I'm with Ida, get the SAR sent to Abbey and reclaim all those charges they have put on the account.

 

Then tell cabot to sod off.

Didn't have any charges on the account. I was within my o/d limit when I defaulted and went to CAB so charges not added.

 

I have cancelled my 18 per month DD to Cabot but cant find their details to set up 5 per month. Want to set up standing order instead as someone on here said that they can change DD amounts.

 

Can the bank set up a s/o without me getting in touch with Cabot as they already know who the are from the cancelled DD?

 

If I don't set up anything at all what will happen? Don't really want to phone Cabot in case they start hassling me again.

Don't be intimidated by cabot. If £5 is all you can afford then that is all you pay. Have you done an income and expenditure sheet or contacted someone like the cccs? Creditors do seem to respond better if you have gone through the appropriate channels.

Would suggest adapting template letter d here

How about sending a regular cheque to:

Cabot Financial (Europe) Limited

PO Box 241,

West Malling,

Kent,

ME19 4NA

or phoning and asking for payment slips so you can pay at the post office:

0845 0700116

or it looks like you can pay online here:

Mr Ton, what will they do if I don't pay? The reason I wanted to do a F&F was to clear a default off my credit reference. I wasn't going to pay the 100 till they agreed in writing to do that.

 

If I don't pay anything do you think they will get back in touch and take the 100? I'm not giving them any more than that.

 

If they don't what will happen if I don't pay anything? Surely it's not worth their while taking me to court for 270 pounds?

They will do what every other DCA does...sweet FA.

They will huff & puff for a while - but once they see they are getting nowhere with you, they'll soon vanish.

They will also trash your credit file along the way and as you have indicated that is important to you there does seem to be room for a little bargaining.

I'm all for not paying dca's but it is important to remember what is important to people and what end result they want!

Credit files are not actually worth the paper they are printed on.

It will always be down to the company in question as to weather you get credit or not.

Its yet another industry myth built up over so many years that CRA files have relevance...

do you have someone close to you with a cheque book?

 

If so give them the £100 and ask them to write a cheque to Cabot for the £100 quoting your account number with them and saying the cheque if accepted and cashed is in acknowledgement that the account will be closed and default removed from your credit file.

 

If it comes from a 3rd party and they cash it they are bound by those terms.

 

If they don't and send it back - you've lost nothing and go back to paying them the £5 a month.

 

I bet they cash it!

that is the risk you take if you do not pay.

 

whilst we all know mr.ton detests anyone paying a dca ( who does'nt) but when people are due money and do not want to go to court and want to pay it to clear it up it then obviously you need to make an arrangment to pay.

 

It's up to you

If the DCA does not obtain payments via the correct legal route then they should be told to bog off effectivley.

DCA's lie,cheat & bully no matter what you pay them - thats why i advocate letting a county court sort everything out.

That way there can be none of that then.

A county court would want to see that you have made some reasonable effort to sort the situation out. Just telling the dca's to bog off and appearing at a litigate in person determined to wriggle out of debt does not go down well as the Rankines found out last year!
