    • 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 been supplied with the attached in response to my CCA request.

 

Having written back to the OC pointing out that the document supplied does not contain the prescribed terms and is not signed by me it is just an application form.

 

OC have now replied stating that when they signed the application form combined with the T&C's of the agreement it became the executed agreement.

 

OC have not supplied the T&Cs applicable at the time the account was opened but have supplied the current T&Cs.

 

Don't know if the app form is clear enough but have checked it over and nowhere can I find any reference to the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (account opened before 2006 Act came into force).

Only mention of an agreement is where it says “agreement overleaf should be read and signed before completing this form”. Whatever was overleaf has not been supplied.

 

My understanding, and hopefully someone can confirm this or correct me if wrong, is that it should make the person applying for the card aware that the application is being made in respect of a Credit Card (or Credit) Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

If it does not state this then it is not viewed as the agreement and even if signed by creditor would not become the executed agreement.

 

From what I can remember reverse had signatures boxes and cancellation rights - other than that I don't recall any T&Cs or prescribed terms – but in those days I did not know much about prescribed terms anyway – but thanks to CAG I do now!!

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi MD,

I am posting this to bump but also believe that your best bet might be to post the agreement using Photobucket then we can look and see.

 

Where is the case apart from that - have you been threatened with court - if so it might be worth using CPR route

Hi, Gamekeeper

 

I removed image, although I had removed all personal date, bar codes etc, I got a little concerned after posting it as then read a number of threads which indicated this Creditor and their sol's regulars on this site.

 

Have had threats of court action as part of formal demand from OC's sol's but no letter before action yet. ALso threats from DCA acting on OC's behalf even though OC had not yet replied to my CCA request.

Hi MD,

 

Whatever you do make sure that you keep any envelopes that stuff is sent in.

Here's the app form. OC claims as this was signed by them it is executed agreement.

 

What does anyone think?

Have you blanked out the details on this or did they just send you a blank form?

 

How did you request the CCA, was it under a s77/s78 request or a sar?

 

If the form had your writing on it and you have blanked it out then what they have sent you is not enforceable at all as, as well as all of the prescribed terms, it is missing your signature and without that they don't have a leg to stand on.

Hi, Nicklea

 

I have blanked out all details.

 

Requested under s78 as a Credit Card.

 

My signature could not have been on it - no signature boxes at all.

 

OC have stated that when they signed the application form combined with the T&C's of the agreement it became the executed agreement - T&C's they supplied are current ones not those at time account opened.

 

OC's signature was a stamp (which can't be read) and initials (which I have removed to prevent them from identifying).

Just why I asked about the s78 request is that they don't actually have to send you anything with your signature on it in order to comply with a s78 request.

 

But, if what they sent you is all that they have and there is nothing with your signature on then they are stuffed.

 

Sending lots of letters to them probably won't achieve very much.

 

What I suggest you do now depends on your current circumstances.

 

If you've got a reasonably good credit ratings (ie no defaults and you're paying all your debts on time) then I would suggest carrying on paying the minimum payment on this debt for the time being just to avoid getting defaulted. What you would need then do is to go to court to get a declaration that the agreement is unenforceable and then you can stop paying them and your credit rating stays good.

 

 

If you have already defualted on this (or you hve several other defaults) then one more isn't going to hurt you as the damage has already been done.

 

In this case I would suggest that you stop paying them straight away and either take them to court or wait until they take you to court.

Thanks, Nicklea

 

Defaulted about 12 months ago, not made payments since then, before defaulted offered token payments which they accepted but then kept asking for more which I could'nt afford. They defaulted, I requested CCA and tis is what was supplied.

 

I was after some guidance on the application forms that have T&C's and prescribed terms on the back which they claim when signed by you and them become the regulated agreement.

 

As I said in original post the app form makes not mention of CCA so (if my understanding is correct) the app form does not form part of the agreement.
