    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed. 
    • Here is what exposes Johnson & Co Commission document, makes for sober reading   Wonder if Snake Oil Singham has read and digested it?   https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/brexit_files/info_site/com_2020_324_2_communication_from_commission_to_inst_en_0.pdf
    • Must be a positive if the Insurers are now using the legislation as it was intended. It is just that I have not heard of it being used for Car Insurance, as the 22% comes from the Insurers rating calculations, which is not available information to the Policyholder. With Home Insurance, if you Insured a Building for £100k, when it should have been Insured for £122k, it is easier to grasp.   The Insurers would have issued the policy documents clearly showing that no motoring offences had been included within the premium calculation and the OP has had 5 months to correct the record with Insurers before the accident.   Perhaps probe the Insurers on the 22%. Can they provide evidence from their Underwriting rating guidance that this is the extra premium for 2 SP30's.

    • 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 am being taken to court by CL Financial for the overdraft/debt I had with HSBC. I have paid this debt in full in February this year but in May I received court papers informing me that CL Financials claiming the money again.

I am sure that case will thrown out of court because I have letters from HSBC apologising for the hustle and confirming the payment.

My question is can do something about false claim, harassment, distress and so on this claim caused me. :confused:

Thx.

Have you filed a defence? - if you have done and then they get your evidence and decide to drop the case which they probably will you can apply for a wasted costs order to the court

Yes, you can put in a 'wasted costs' claim as part of your defence stating the following.

 

"I attach documentation from the original creditor dated XXX stating the alleged debt was paid in full to them on XXX date. As this clearly states there is no debt the claim should be immediately struck out with no leave to appeal asit is clearly a vexatious claim.

 

As part of my defence I am asking for wasted costs of XXX to be paid by the defendents upon dismissal of the claim.

 

That should be all you need to write and will stuff them completely. Don't forget to include the copies of the letters stating the debt is paid.

 

Classic case of the left not knowing what the right is doing.

Guys thank you very much for your support. I filled a defence already, just filled the court form some time ago. The court didn’t ask for any papers to be presented at that time. I just explained that the debt was paid and I have all paperwork proving it. Now I have a hearing date and I need to supply all copies of my documents week before. So, can I put wasted cost claim with it and how much? As I understand that will be cost of my time I spent on this matter. Is it right?

Yes, don't forget legal research at £9.95 per hour, 15 hours doesn't seem unreasonable here.... asnd postage, and filing your defence fees, and time off work to attend the hearing.

thx Sillygirl. I saw my friend solicitor earlier on and he suggested sending a letter with the copy of bank confirmation that the debt was paid off to DC. Although I phoned them right after I received the court claim and told them that they playing silly, my friend said I need to send a copy of this letter to have awritten proof. I was furious that I still have to justify myself but his point was that if I don’t do this the Judge can turn around and blame me for wasting court time and not trying to prevent the hearing deliberately.

It just seems not fair that we have to follow every letter of the law and they can just jump on us whenever they feel like it.

I agree with your sentiments, in my case the company are claiming the alleged debt which went to court and was defended and a notice of discontinuance filed is NOT in dispute, even thouugh they have now asked for a CCA on my behalf - when the 12 + 2 days are up they will be getting an email from me telling them that there is a valid dispute and there has been another addendum to the claim in with the OFT. 6 days gone already with another 6 to go (not counting weekends).

Don't forget to take the letter you've written to court should it come to that... bet they are after judgement by default (I really think that should be dropped, if neither side shows up the alleged debt is declared null and void).

Make sure whatever you send is sent recorded delivery, absolutely go for wasted costs, include everything youve spent (including parking fees etc.) Every hour you spend even thinking or worrying about this, is research. Grab them by the gonads and have a really hard squeeze. Report to the various ombudsman as well. If its a legal firm report them to SRA.

THx bazaar. I actually called ombudsman but they told me that they cannot help in this situation. They would if it is a credict card but not DC. So, I will contact FOT and SRA as you suggested. And I always send everything by recorded delivery.

I was looking through other threads and understand that judgement by default is applicable to the outstanding debt. MIne was paid off in full. So, I think it is not relevant in my case. Am I right?

I wouldnt think this would ever see court, once the judge has seen your evidence. If it does, then they aint got a leg to stand on anyways, so as youve been told earlier, let the court know it was paid off and this appears to be an abuse of process for a non existing claim

Okay I am back!

Update on the situation.

As my friend solicitor advised I have sent the DC copy of Bank letter confirming that the debt is paid…. Nothing in response….

Today I submitted all paper work which actually states that the debt is paid to my original lender in full and that all payments made to my bank account will be transferred to DC due my account being closed.

I don’t quite understand why they still pursuing this. Probably they hope that for some reason I will get scarred and don’t follow it?? !!! I have to send them all copies of court papers.

Anyway I submitted a Wastes Costs claim as well.

Now I am thinking to attack the bank itself because they obviously didn’t transfer the money to DC as they stated in their own letter leading to a HUGE distress for me. I am not joking, I actually find all this situation very unpleasant and desperate for someone to take responsibility. As far as I can see it is the bank fault and their sorry letter is not good enough any more.

will keep you posted.

you seem to be on top of this - I would imagine the DC are now hoping you just won't turn up to court so they can get a judgement in default i.e. you don't turn up they get a judgement in their favour.

 

Obviously you are going to turn up and give them hell :)

Ohhh trust me I will.

The hearing is in the middle of the day and I loose quite a lot in money that day because I need to turn all my booked clients down but I will not miss the show.
