    • i would suggest you look at the dates of posts on those other forums paypal do not sell debts and even if they do, there is stuff and all any debts buyer could do yo you in the UK. forget it, or even better go complaint to your bank and tell them paypal did not advise you £1200 would come out of your a/c, which they should do, and that it was the result of fraud. you don't have to tell them any details.   as for the rest of your debts..   debt IS NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE IN THE UK..where the beep did you get that from!!   pers i'd be opening a parachute account and getting asll your income paid into that so NO-ONE can get their hands on it. cause NW are just about to introduce 40% OD int rate and they will forever be draining you of money   get OUT NOW from them.   dx      
    • I'm aware there are some grammatical and reference errors but the post expired before I could fix. I'd really like to know if I've made valid points or not. Thanks.
    • Another thing, they say they have photographic evidence of the entry and exit times, but have not included it in the SAR. If they have photos shouldn't they provide them in the SAR? And if they don't have them now, how can they prove anything?    Should I ask OBS to produce the photos?
    • Is this any better?  I've resigned myself to losing. Admittedly, I don't quite know what I'm doing. I just hope I get a remote hearing, that should save me some embarrassment.      1) The Claimants pleaded case is that the Defendant entered into an agreement with Provident subsequently assigned to Vanquis Bank Limited under account reference xxx.    2) It is admitted I have had financial dealings with Provident in the past. However, have no recollection of the alleged reference number the claimant refers to.   3) In February 2019 I made a formal written request to the Claimant for them to provide me with a copy of my Consumer Credit Agreement as entitled to do so under sections 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.    4) On the 21 June 2019 the Claimant sent a response which enclosed a reconstituted copy of an agreement, default notice, notice of assignment Provident to Vanquis, notice of assignment Vanquis to Lowell. [EXHIBIT x, x & x].   5) On 30/07/19, I received a claims form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £369.84. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £369.84 in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no xxxx  pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA).   6) Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Provident to Vanquis. The claimant states a further assignment to them occurred on 12/06/2017 with notice given.    7) It is denied notice of assignment from Provident to Vanquis and subsequently Vanquis to Lowell were ever received.    😎 The claimant states documents were received at both addresses. The claimant doesn’t appear able to confirm my address and therefore cannot say with certainty said documents were received. Furthermore, the client did not issue said documents and therefore cannot prove delivery.     9) It is denied any communication took place with myself and Vanquis Bank Limited. Any alleged legal assignment to part of the “Fresh Start” initiative had not been informed. I have no previous knowledge.   10) Under the consumer credit act 2006, until debts have been repaid, there is an obligation to send statements and notices to the debtor at prescribed intervals at no more than 12 months. The statement should explain the money borrowed, money paid, interest in all cases and the outstanding amount. Consequences of failing to make repayments and the opportunity of making minimum payments should be informed. The Claimant has submitted a statement of accounts dated March 2019. This having followed my request for a credit consumer agreement. It is denied this document and any such required statement of accounts required under section 77A during the alleged agreement were ever received.   11) The claimant states that a default notice was issued on 18thJanuary 2017. The payment date requested by Vanquis Bank Limited on said document is  28thFebruary 2017. The formal Notice of Default that was accompanying this letter displays a requested payment date, 28thFebruary 2019. (Exhibit x, x)   12) I argue that this is not in fact a COPY of an original default notice, that they state was issued during February 2017, but that this is a fabricated version of a default notice created by Lowell. Either way the default notice was not issued by the assigned creditor (Vanquis).   13) It is therefore contended that the original creditor failed to serve a valid Default Notice pursuant to section 87(1) Service of a notice on the debtor or in accordance with section 88 (a “default notice ”) is necessary before the creditor or owner can become entitled, by reason of any breach by the debtor of a regulated agreement.   14) The Claimant states a default notice was not required. If there is a default in payments during the fixed term a default notice must be issued. The Claimant states they were informed a default notice was sent on 18thJanuary. The Claimants case relies upon being informed and does not constitute fact.   15) It is denied a default notice was ever received.    16) It is admitted I responded to the Claimant’s pre-action protocol letter addressed in my name. I indicated I did not know if I owed the debt. I indicated as such having no recollection of affiliation with Vanquis nor Lowell. A default for the allege debt appearing on my credit file only November 2019.    17) I understand that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct or bad debts which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed and which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income.   As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.   18) Under Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) Where the claim includes a money claim, a defendant shall be taken to require that any allegation relating to the amount of money claimed be proved unless he expressly admits the allegation. Therefore, it is expected that the Claimant be required to prove the allegation that the money is owed as claimed.

    • 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 I took an elderly gentleman shopping today, parked in the council car park, in a disabled bay. checked the time limit on parking in disabled bays clearly says no restrictions on time allowed to park with a disabled badge. No Three hour time limit.

 

I did not display the clock as no need to as no time limit. Got back to car got a ticket stuck to the window. Which said Contravention parked in a disabled bay without a valid disabled badge showing. But what the warden has done is cross this out with her pen and write No Clock.

 

I challenged the Warden and said you can't hand write what you think you can only issue a ticket for what the contravention says she laughed and said well appeal it then but you wont get anywhere.

 

I spoke to a solicitor today, a friend. Its not his field really but he felt that they would not hold up in court if they issued a ticket in which the contravention had been adhered to, but they had added their own wording in pen to what the warden thought the law to be.

 

I also spoke to the disabled drivers organisation, who said that they had come across this before, but in their view the law does not state that a clock has to be displayed as it is only a courtesy to the parking authority there is no bearing on the actual person who is disabled to set the clock....A bit bizzare!!!

 

Anyway.....any thoughts ??????? I would welcome some other opinions on this

 

thank you so much

The contravention code for not displaying a blue badge is appropriate if the issue in fact hinges on not having a clock. It's an all-encompassing definition along the lines of "not displying a valid badge in the correct manner".

 

In this sense, the warden hasn't imposed an extra contravention, because the alleged contravention is covered by what's printed on the PCN. The issue then is whether a clock is required at all. It sounds from your description as if one is not needed, as there's no time issue.

 

Why don't you phone the parking dept and without mentioning this PCN, enquire whether a clock is needed there, and whether there is any sort of time limit? This will give you a bit of clarification, and any images you can post on here will help (in particular the signage at the car park and the PCN itself).

Thank you for taking the time to reply. No I am sorry I do not have a scanner to post it on here.

 

It says we had reason to believe

 

that the following contravention had occured and that a penalty charge is now payable..

Parked in a disabled person's parking place without clearly displaying a valid disabled person's badge.

 

This has a small line in pen drawn over it and written in the traffic warden's black pen is the words "No Clock" and initials.

 

 

On the bottom part of the ticket the Payment slip

 

No crossing out has been done at all no writing it just says

 

Contravention

 

Parked in a disabled person's parking place without clearly displaying a valid disabled person's badge.

 

***********************************************

 

correct me if I am wrong....but does the top half of a ticket to be valid have to be the same as the payment slip as well.......

 

Appreciate your help on this one.....

Hi.

 

I posted my reply too soon - please see above for my full reply.

 

Not sure if writing on the PCN might invalidate it, but I doubt it. Hopefully someone else will know.

No, since the contents of the payment slip are not governed by statute.

all codes are from this company, i think there are a general code england uses: PATROL Online

 

on the ticket should be a code number for the contrvention. let us know the number and that refers to the rules broken, now if that code points towards a rule which does not mention anything about a time, then you sorted, if there is no number, then i dont have anything else lol

Pay the fine in order to avoid further complications and then appeal. pay the fine with a letter saying that it is under protest and that you will be appealing.

absoutly no mentions of time, linked to the code used on the ticket, defo appeal, present the case, ask them to clarify the code 40, and why the officer decided to write on it and adding the time, when the code used mentions no time.

 

is there like a discount on the amount if paid within a certain time limit? if so check whether the time limit is put on hold when appealing.

Do NOT pay the fine then appeal. Do one or the other. Paying then appealing does not avoid further complications, it causes further complications. Not only are they likely to refuse to consider an appeal on a paid PCN. even if you win you have to go through the rigmarole of applying for your own money back.

 

You need to ascertain whether there is a requirement for a clock. If there is not, you should win on appeal. If there is, still appeal, but do so on the basis that the regulation is unclear, and you may well get benefit of doubt.

Once you pay the case will be closed. Any appeal after then will be dismissed as meaningless.

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate you coming to my aid on this one. I have just put in an appeal, I am not going to pay I have decided to fight it on the above information. Yes the discount period is put on hold whilst an appeal is considered, so nothing ventured nothing gained. Would not mind, our council is thousands of pounds in debt, the shops are closing all around their ears and they are employing more and more traffic wardens to chase people spending what little money they have on the remaining shops!!! Let alone finding little loopholes to penalise disabled OAPs thats my rant over for the day !!!

 

I will definately keep you all informed. Just to say again a big thank you your help means a lot to me and is greatly appreciated.

they wardens must have some kind of incentive in place for placing tickets

Contravention 40 is for an 'On street' bay so the PCN is void, there is also no requirement to display the clock unless the parking place has a time limit. Don't pay appeal state the contravention used is incorrect for a car park and that unless there is a sign to state otherwise a clock is not needed in a car park, any problems get back to me.

You cannot do that.

 

You can only pay or appeal; you can't do both,
