    • 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

I have received a letter to my mum's address demanding payment for a student overdraft that was taken out in 1997 ish with Barclays.

 

The amount is around £350.00 and has now been passed to Booker Management Services.

 

To be quite honest I can't remember that far back and

 

I seem to remember there being a mistake on Barclays side with the overdaft but I thought that was all sorted out.

 

i have uploaded the letter i recieved below -

I'm sure there was no cca agreement.

 

Can they persue something that old.

 

I don't want to tell them my new addresss and also I don't want them to hassle my mum who is a widow and will proberbly panic.

 

Any advice appreaciated.

Hi

 

After another 4 years they are still after this. I cannot remember the account. As always any help appreciated. Basically it states -

 

Got a letter today from gpb solicitors who have taken by way of assignment the debt due above.

 

Basically the letter says that notice of assignment has been given and that the debt remains outstanding. It says that I need to contact them within 14 days.

Tell them you informed the last cretins Booker Management 4 years ago that the debt was statute barred. Inform them that any further demands for payment would be subject to section 40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970, and the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008. Demand they send you a copy of their complaints procedure. Send the statute barred template again with the above by recorded delivery to the solicitors

 

We are not talking of Geoffrey Parker Bourne solicitors are we ?

I cannot believe this OLD post flagged up in my inbox!! They are seriously kidding aren't they?

 

Well well well, I would go to town on these fake sols, and the previous clowns who clearly knew the state of the account before flogging it on.

 

So, complaints too, the OFT & TS, your local MP, and finally the SRA, and what the hell send your story to BBC Watchdog.

Another letter, this time from Global Debt Recovery to my mums address asking for £386.14

Does the letter mention court ation?

Have you already told them that you will not be making any payments because the debt it statute barred?

 

When a debt is statute barred it doesn't cease to exist. They can still chase you for payment, it just means the debt can't be enforced.

 

If the debt is statute barred and because the debt originated from so long ago you would think they were wasting their time. But that makes me think the debt might not actually be statuted barred yet? I don't think you've actually given us enough information to say ascertain whether that it is (like have you acknowledged the debt at all?) - previous posters have just made assumptions.

Hi

 

Thanks for replying

 

The letter does not mention court action.

 

I don't believe that I have acknowledged any debt to them. I have not called them or anyone. I did receive a letter from Booker Management services back in 2009 and I did send them a letter and they did reply back saying that would close this account.

 

Then in 2013 it was passed to gpb solicitors and I sent them a letter too.

 

This time I have replied via email to Global Debt Recovery, also forwarded the email to the oft and my MP.

 

Regards

They can't send a debt collector to my mums house can they?

Debt collectors are NOT bailiffs, they are powerless nobody's, who work on commission.

 

Next doors cat has more powers to be on your Mums property than these clowns.

 

So this has been doing the rounds, from one bottom feeder to the next.

 

What letter have you been sending them?

 

Have you been making formal complaints each time they try and con you out of money?

This is the letter that I have been sending -

 

You have contacted me regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself.

 

I would point out that under the Limitation Act 1980 Section 5:

 

“An action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.”

 

I would point out that in their Consumer Credit sourcebook, the Financial Conduct Authority states the following rules:

 

"...a firm must not attempt to recover a statute barred debt in England, Wales or Northern Ireland if the lender or owner has not been in contact with the customer during the limitation period." 7.15.4

 

"A firm must not continue to demand payment from a customer after the customer has stated that he will not be paying the debt because it is statute barred." 7.15.8

 

The last payment or acknowledgement of this debt was made in 1997 and no further acknowledgement or payment has been made since that time. Unless you can provide evidence of payment or written contact from me in the relevant period under Section 5 of the Limitation Act, I suggest that you are no longer able to take any court action against me to recover the alleged amount claimed.

 

I await your written confirmation that no further contact will be made concerning the above account and confirmation that this matter is now closed. I would also like to point out that I have informed the Office of fair trading & trading standards.
