    • Well done! This is more than likely the end of it, but you should check with the court at some stage that they've officially discontinued.   They can still chase you for the debt, and they might, but you can just ignore. If they were to issue proceedings again, you can refer to this case in your submissions - it won't reflect very well on them if their case is similar to this time. The chances of them trying again are probably slim though.

    • Hi All, newbie here, hope I'm doing this correctly.   Two years ago the wife was using my car and bought a ticket in a train station car park and displayed it on the dashboard. She returned to find a parking charge notice from Excel. It was a very windy day and it had evidently been blown on the the floor of the car as she left. It did not have a self adhesive part to stick to the window. I subsequently followed their online claim procedure and sent a copy of the ticket but the claim was refused. A couple of days ago I received the County Court Business Centre claim form in the post after presuming it would go away after not hearing from them for about a year (the usual threatening letters from debt recovery companies etc).   I wish I had paid the original £20 as this has been a big worry and hassle, but I just ignored most of the letters after reading stuff online. Obviously I want to dispute the whole of the claim but do I have a decent defence? I would cite the fact that the only reason the ticket was not displayed was that it could not be stuck to the window.   Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.   Name of the Claimant : Excel Parking Services   Claimants Solicitors: Unknown   Date of issue – 08 July 2020   Date for AOS - 27 July 2020?   Date to submit Defence - 10 August?       What is the claim for – Breach of contract - parked without clearly displaying a valid parking ticket in Brewery St car park, Chesterfield on 02.07. 2018. Defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability and Claimant seeks recovery of of the parking charge notice, costs and interest       What is the value of the claim? £185.00

    • 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 an outstanding EON energy bill for £558 which is being collected by SRJ through the CCCS. I'm paying £15 a month to SRJ.

I'm thinking of making an offer to settle this account but have no idea what a reasonable offer would be.

Can anyone give me an idea?

Thanks in advance.

Didn't think engery providers went for this - but might be wrong!

 

I thought the usual tactic was to install pre-pay meters and collect the debt via that.

Me too? I have never heard of an energy supplier selling the debt on to a DCA???

 

It is normaly dealt with by means of a pre-payment meter, but then again I guess if you move out of the area then they could feasably sell the debt on to a DCA..

 

However have a look at this on F&F offers;

The Law – ‘Full and final settlement’ - Voltimum UK - Electrical Installation Products and Contracting


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

We moved away from the area so they are collecting through DCA.

Thanks for the replies.

That explains it then, thank you.

Have you asked the DCA to provide proof that they are able to legally collect the debt?

 

Some DCA's will have paid as little as 6P in the £ for a debt, so bear that in mind if you offer them a F&F settlement, and ensure that you have it in writing before sending them any money!

Not spoke or written to them. Just been paying them through CCCS.

Is there a template letter on the forum to send?

I'm rubbish at writing letters.

Thanks.

if the DCA are collecting only, then no, you can't sadly unless E-ON agree, to ans that you will need to contact E-ON themselves.

 

whilst on the subject are you sure £558 was the total from E-ON and not ramped up by the DCA, did you get a bill before the dca became involved?

 

 

if the dca have brought the debt then yes make an F&F but make it VERY low & ENSURE it has the line about they nor any other organisation can ever collect on it .


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

Not sure what total bill was.

It was originally being collected by Capquest. Original balance was £860.

Been paying £15 a month since October 2007.

For some reason debt transferred to SRJ towards end of 2008.

urm.....

i smell a rat.

 

i'd be inclined to phone eon and say you are being chased by a dca for an old debt, and that you want to know hat the original ammount was you owed to e-on.

 

they should be able to tell you that, and they may also answer the question of was it sold to the dca or or they just collecting.

 

e-on should know all about it if they are getting your £15's, i bet they are not!

 

thats my thoughts anyhow, if its passed between dca's there is something fishy here.

Spoke to EON today and the original debt from them was £856.26.

This is the same balance that CapQuest started from.

The debt is still owned by EON and is now being collected by SRJ.

I asked EON if they would consider a F&F offer but they require the full balance of £558.92.

Puzzling thing for me is if the balance to be collected by DCA is the same as original balance and no charges have been added by DCA, how does DCA make their money?
