    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • 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 sent a fee reclaim letter off to Barclaycard on 17th July using the MSE template letter and interest calculator and got a reply on 23rd to say they think their charges are 'tranparent and fair' but will be refunding the full £240 plus £30 interest which I'm over the moon with.

 

I found this site a few days later and sent off a CCA request with the £1 postal order.

 

I've received two replies. One is a letter stating

 

"I write further to your letter requesting a copy of your executed agreement for the above account.

 

The information we must provide to you under the terms of Section 78 is prescribed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and by the Consumer Credit Regulations 1983. Under section 78 we must supply you with a copy of your executed agreement and with a statement of account which is practical to refer.

 

The current credit limit it £amount

The current balance is £amount

The next minimum payment of £amount is due on date

 

PLease note, a copy of your current Barclaycard Credit Agreement will be sent under separate cover.

 

You will be recieving your next statement shortly which will provide you will full details of your account.

 

This completes our obligation to you under Section 78 of the CCA 1974.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Name

They've then attached some pages that don't relate to my account and could be anything. The first page states "02/04-08/04 Executive Agreements for Gold Mastercard, Graduate Visa, IBCM Gold, IBCM PLatinum, IBCM Visa, PLatinum Mastercard, Stockton Mastercard, Student astercard"

 

None of the pages have my signature on or any of my details just pages of their 'conditions'

 

Then sent another letter which has states this is a copy of my terms and conditions and this is like an updated and more concise version of the first one.

 

I was expecting something that I signed agreeing to APRs etc etc. Is this legal or have they sent the wrong thing?

Hi HEA,

 

If you read other threads here in the BC forum, you'll see a huge number relate to users trying to get sight of their credit agreements, without success.

 

See what others are doing and, if you then have Q's, feel free to ask.

 

:)

Thanks Slick.

 

I've just been reading other threads in this section but I can't make much sense of it. I need a super idiots guide!

 

The account is not in dispute and I make the min pay every month. Should I be sending a letter back to them? If so which one? Sorry to ask so many questions but this stuff is very complicated!

Hi HEA,

 

Sorry, but there are no shortcuts and you'll have to do the reading yourself to get a true picture of what users are doing and how BC are frustrating their attempts.

 

Will the refund of charges make much of a dent in your a/c balance.

 

Are you hoping there's no valid credit agreement so you can question whether the debt is enforceable.

 

Are you still using the card. After sending them the CCA request, they will usually drop your credit limit to stop any further spending.

 

See here for a possible reply to them about their failure to supply a copy of the agreement - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/barclaycard/167584-barclaycard-no-cca.html#post1821561

There is still over £3000 owed on the card.

 

I haven't used the card for over 18 months, just been paying minimum payments. We had a bad patch two years ago where I was off on maternity and OH lost most of his income, we lived off credit for a year, got in a mess and have been climbing out of it since. I missed a fair few payments on the card but have since caught up.

 

I guess I'm looking at any ways to reduce the amount of debt we have. I'm going to keep reading this forum as I've spent hours tonight and it's not much clearer so I'm hoping there will be a lightbulb moment and it will all become clear.

Do the reading, then make your friends asking informed questions :¬), they will respect you more and you really have to understand the situation for yourself as everyone is in a different position

Hi HEA,

 

Haha, it'll take more than a few hours to get up to speed. ;)

 

A couple of things that may help you:-

 

1. BC do not usually send out your credit agreement in response to a CCA request. They are side-stepping this by responding in the way they have to you already with Terms and Conditions and a "Statement" of how your a/c stands at present.

 

2. They say by sending the T&C's, etc they have fulfilled their obligations under CCA1974.

 

3. While you continue to pay BC the monthly payments, nothing will change. They'll NOT consider the a/c to be In Dispute and they'll not send you the agreement.

 

4. If you decide to withhold payments because you believe you are entitled to, BC will ignore your views and pursue you for payments using their DCA's.

 

5. Some users are trying the CPR strategy but this is still in the early stages. Read more about this at Link No2 in my signature below.

 

:)

Slick thanks for taking the time to reply.

 

I've spent 6+ hours ploughing through so far and there is a lot to take in. I've been reading the CPR strategy this afternoon (huuuge thread!) and it sounds a very viable option.

 

Right now I'm wanting to send a follow up letter saying I'm not satisfied this meets the S78 requirements and giving them a further opportunity to produce this ;) before sending a SAR. At this point and still no CCA I'd then be looking to go down the CPR route as I think that shows I've take reasonable steps to obtain the CCA.

 

Does this sound like a half decent plan?

Yes, use the letter I linked in post #4 above.

 

A SAR will not get you the agreement based on experience to date.

 

CPR route is a possible next step.

 

An alternative is to simply stop paying until they produce a credit agreement. They'll hound you to hell and back but, ultimately, if they want you to pay, they'll have to take you to court. And, to do that successfully, they'll have to produce a valid credit agreement.

 

The risk is that you'll get a Default Notice and a judgement against you if they DO have a valid agreement that stands up in court.

 

Think it through and maybe read this too - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/dca-legal-successes/170484-fairbyblue-mbna-restons-court-46.html#post2347177

 

Please be aware, however, that cases have gone against CAGgers as well. :)

I thought the SAR would prove to a judge, if it came to court that I'd tried every avenue to get the information? I wasn't expecting to get the CCA from there based on what I've read on here.

 

The idea of withholding payments scares me when for all I know they could have an enforcable CCA. However I feel very strongly that BC shouldn't be allowed to withhold this information from me.

 

Is there any pattern to CCAs historically. I took this card out in 2004, does anyone have any knowledge whether the majority of them in 2004 were/weren't compliant?
