    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]
    • Pleased to hear that.   A general comment, for future readers of this thread, from my experiences of being an Executor.   Most large companies have a centralised 'Bereavement' department and I've found it's best to notify the death to them rather than the general customer service call centres. Search the company's website for 'bereavement'.   The bereavement departments are in my experience staffed by people who understand the processes when someone dies both for the relatives/executors and within their own companies and they get things sorted efficiently. (I've never had to use Vodafone's though).
    • Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
    • Forget the warranty that means nothing and a warranty does not replace or over rule your rights under CRA amongst other consumer legislation. which state that outside of 30days but within 6mts its the sellers that is responsibility to confirm the item faulty, which has been done.   contact amazon with that proof and demand a replacement, refund or repair as they feel fit.        
    • Thanks BN   I take it this is a good sign then like you say. I certainly won’t be making any payments to them.

    • 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

sent cca request back in april09, sent account in dispute letter end of april09, then received letter stating that they had a high volumn of cca request at present and would answer with response by 1st august09.

sent default notice on 1st june 09. been receiving letters stating account in arrears replied with the normal account in dispute. Got letter last week in response to my query and that for a cca request I need to write to new address enclosing the statuory £1.00 which I had already enclosed with my first request. So, I sent this off last week with the additional £1.00 and copies of all my letters and proof of my original £1.00 postal order.

But I have received this default notice, which I have posted below, if somebody could have a look at it would be most grateful

Hi confused,

 

Basically LLoyds have 12+2 days to respond to the cca request then they enter default, also if you have evidence that the cca request was sent recorded delivery the dispute is strted from that date. If any enforcement action is taken after this date, it is considered unlawful and therefore vexatious.

 

I would ignore all of these letters for the time being, do you have proof of when your request was sent?

 

Nevertheless, they have responded with acknowledgment. An therefore issuing a default notice is a criminal offence when under dispute. I would certainly report this to the OFT, as could also result in negligence.

Hi Confused,

 

I would consider sending this letter

 

DO NOT IGNORE THIS LETTER

XXXXX

XXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXX

xxxxxxxxxxxx 2009

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Re:− Account/Reference Number XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

FORMAL NOTICE - ACCOUNT IN DISPUTE

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

In response to your letter dated xxxxxxxxxxxxx 2009 I must admit that I am rather bemused as to why this account has been addressed with a notice of default, as it is in dispute and has been since xxxxxxxxxx 2009.

 

Not only is this a breach of the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 and the Office Of Fair Trading's debt collection guidelines, but also in breach of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and Data Protection Act 1998.

 

As xxxxxxxxxxxxxx are now in default of my Consumer Credit Act request and OFT Debt Collection Guidelines, I consider this account to be in SERIOUS DISPUTE.

 

As you are aware while my Consumer Credit Act request remains in default enforcement action is NOT permitted, under s127 this constitutes a complete defence at law.

 

Consequentially any legal action you pursue will not only be fully and vigorously defended, it will ALSO be averred as both UNLAWFUL and VEXATIOUS.

 

If xxxxxxxxxxxxx chooses to ignore my dispute and attempt enforcement, I will initiate legal action and file reports with the appropriate authorities, including, but not limited to, Trading Standards, Office of Fair Trading, Information Commissioners Office, Financial Ombudsman Service and possible court action.

 

After taking advice, I am of the opinion that any continued pursuit is in violation of the Administration of Justice Act 1970 section 40 as well as breaching a number of the OFT Collection Guidelines and the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.

 

I hope that this will not be necessary and an acceptable solution can be accomplished.

 

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.

 

Yours faithfully

XXXXXXXXXX

Hi Confused45,

The above letter is more appropriate for when the OC has passed on the account to a Solicitor, although Silver Surfer has kindly amended the original CAG template to read Default Notice instead, unfortunately the rest doesn't quite fit in places.

I've looked at your Default Notice and it does seem valid in terms of dates, unfortunately. However as Silversurfer says it should not have been issued while the account is in dispute.

For the moment I personally feel you may be better resending the original Account in Dispute letter from the CAG library, stressing that the dispute dates from 12+2 days after your original request, make the phrase about Default Notices in bold and state that all correspondence is being saved preparatory to a complaint to the OFT, in view of their blatant disregard for the Consumer Credit Act.

From now on you should remember that every letter you send may end up before a judge, so make sure YOU are the one being reasonable and playing by the rules ;) and don't threaten anything eg Court Action that you don't intend to follow through.

Keep us informed every step of the way and always make your own decisions after reading as much as possible about others in similar circumstances on CAG :)

 

Take care,

Elsa x

Just noticed this..it's not a criminal offence Silver Surfer, it's deemed as "unlawful" as it's a civil matter.

Hope this helps to allay the confusion

Hi Elsa

 

Should I report them to OFT?

I would resend the account in dispute letter as above, heading it FORMAL COMPLAINT stating that you now intend to report them to the OFT unless they comply with the requirements of the Consumer Credit Act, rescind the default notice and stop further enforcement activity until they comply with your CCA request. Give them 14 days to confirm that they have done this, then report the beggars if they don't.

 

(Had the default notice been faulty we'd have let them continue to hang themselves and gone a different route)

Report them anyway to the OFT for issuing a default notice whilst in dispute.

Hi Undercover Elsa & IdaInFife

 

Thanks you for coming back to me, if everything is okay apart from them sending the default notice when they did. I guess I can challenge the default notice and the interest & charges applied to the account while it was in default.

Thanks for helping out Ida :)

Confused, as far as I can see, if it is enforceable, Your options now are:

1.to pay the amount on the default if you want to prevent a default being registered and continue as normal. OR

2. To continue to withhold payment until they register the default/terminate the account. At this stage, or after a while, they usually start trying various options to get you to pay, such as freezing interest payments and offering the chance to pay reduced monthly payments etc

Some on the other hand go straight in with threats (which are toothless at first so don't panic).

Ultimately you'll need to choose the right moment to come to a reduced payment arrangement with them, hopefully with no interest. Depends which way they, and you decide to go.

Keep us informed and we'll help as much as we can.
