    • Hi as this appears to be about a Parking Charge from a PPC,   I have moved your thread to the Private Land parking Forum, where you should get advice targeted to the situation   could you give some history about what the Invoice was for  and who the parking Contractor is  Did you appeal the charge, and it looks like you have had letters from the dreaded useless Gladstones demanding payment  Could you give the information asked for on this sticky and also post the  letter from gladstones to see if it is a Letter Before Claim/Action?    
    • it is also unlawful to change the ownership of a vehicle [or goods] to avoid enforcement action upon them. and this was done after you had already replied to the council regarding the outstanding ticket(s).   be careful upon pursuing a resolution arguing this point.   you could have quite easily changed ownership to gain a parking permit some months previously when getting the first windscreen ticket.              
    • I would start off by sending the bank an SAR. Which bank is it?
    • I agree with you DX100, but N/W don't want to play ball and send a copy of the agreement after 3 requests.  How will this stand if it goes to Court?
    • Sorry if this is in the wrong section as not sure where exactly its best suited.   We got the bank statement the other day & noticed 23 separate Xbox in game credit debits for Fortnite for £7.99 each over a 4 week period.  daughter insists she didn't order anything.    most will say "of course she would and just denying it etc" I'm not going to say I believe her even though I'm assuming using real cash to buy in game credit comes with a clear notification that your using real money (and stating the amount each time) to buy such in game credit.  I still need to check the Xbox security settings to see if as I think I did, I did set a security pin for purchases   a few things are puzzling me on a legal footing and that mainly what I want to ask about.   As the bank statement indicates the card in question is an old card I had replaced and cancelled a while ago, about the time these transactions started.  When I ordered the new replacement I asked for the previous card to be cancelled.  2   weeks later I had to report the replacement card stolen\lost abroad and ordering another again asking for that card to be cancelled to prevent unauthorized use and money being taken from the bank account.   I've already contacted the bank to enquire how and why they have allowed payments from an old debit card I had replaced and cancelled?.  They suggest that the card was never cancelled when the replacement was ordered and that the old card would remain valid until the expire date in a couple of years time!!!.    I asked them how on earth this can be the case as the replacement card has a completely different number and ordering the replacement should trigger (as per my request) cancellation and usage of said card.  The bank is suggesting otherwise as because the card was valid when setting up Xbox live that the card can always be used even if replaced regardless of reason it was replaced or if we cancelled the card.    They justified this action by saying the payments are continuous payments (similar to direct debit) and that's why they went through and referred me to Microsoft.   I pushed the issue and said they are not continuous payments but single individual 1 off payments that by nature (in game credit) and the number of payments (23 x £7.99) they could never claim them to have been continuous payments as a pre existing agreement for such payments for the game in question would have to exist and have existed when the card was valid which it doesn't.    these payments should not have been made because they are neither continuous payments and come from an old debit card that was replaced and cancelled.  The bank sort of agreed that these payments maybe are not continuous payments yet are now unsure where I stand.  I have been referred to there disputes department.   Feeling I'm going to get the same run around on the rights over taking payments from an old replaced card that was supposed to be cancelled, I'm wanting to know what members think on a legal footing?.    As its like the bank saying I can use the same old & replaced debit card details to order items online because its still in date even if replaced & cancelled which I find highly unlikely!.

Letter ref RBLG04

Ref: XXXXXXXXXX

 

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

 

Thank you for your statement dated 26th February 2010 received 8th March 2010, detailing the period 26.02.09 to 26.02.10 which was singularly unhelpful and, as you acknowledged, not at all what I had requested or indeed was entitled to. I should indeed like you to provide the extra information which you so kindly offer to furnish me with, within 15 working days of this request. I look forward to receiving it within that time frame.

 

Thank you also for your letter of 18th February 2010 where you state that I have failed to adhere to my commitment to a repayment plan. This is in fact completely erroneous on your part and I reserve my right to take legal action in respect of defamation of character and libel.

 

Your letter of 22nd January stated that you were unable to provide a copy of the original loan application document and enclosed a cheque for £10.00. I hereby return your cheque and should like to request reimbursement by postal order as per my payment method to yourselves.

 

Furthermore, as you yourselves have stated in writing, you have no proof of any debt. I therefore state that I shall make one final payment on 8th April in full and final settlement of any supposed debt, however I do not acknowledge any debt with yourselves, this is a goodwill gesture on my part. If I am not in receipt of a letter from yourselves to the contrary, supported with legal obligation on my part and documentation from yourselves, before 8th April 2010, I shall consider this matter concluded.

 

At the conclusion of this matter I wish to receive no further communication from yourselves. I have numerous bullying, intimidating, harassing, and threatening communications from yourselves in your many and varied guises, and as such feel you have had quite sufficient sport with myself.

 

Yours faithfully,

What did you ask for, a CCA or a SAR or both and did you submit it correctly and in the meantime you hope they would not have a problem with you suspending payment until they have complied with your reasonable request

Thanks kurvaface. I requested a subject access request and a CCA. I used the letter templates on this forum. In total I sent 3 letters in one envelope, the third being the do not dare darken my doorstep one, together with 2 postal orders of £1 and £10. They have not said that the letters were incorrect, just that they are unable (or unwilling) to comply.

 

I am unsure about suspending payments - won't that lead to further harassment from LTSB/BLS? I would rather keep paying by SO and ignoring their standard threat-o-grams than be in a position where I really do have to respond to them or they can take action against me!

They must be up the creek without a paddle if they are not complying with a SAR.

 

I think to be safe you need to establish for sure why they didn't comply with the SAR. Perhaps ring the LLoyds DSAR team and ask them.

I have a slight problem telephoning them as I sent them a letter saying all communication must be in writing!! The impression I have is that as I have been dutifully paying my monthly payment all they have had to do is issue their randomly generated threat-o-grams and so have probably misplaced or destroyed any and all personal details they ever held on me. I suspect all they have is a statement of my payments which itself probably only goes back as far as their present computer system.

 

I am tempted to send the letter giving them 30 days to respond and see what they have to say for themselves. If they cannot come up with anything, then the whole thing is over, and if they actually do find some documentation, I shall simply continue with my payments.

I'm not quite sure what to do as Royal Mail do not have a POD for my recorded delivery letter, they don't have a POD for another letter i sent at the same time either but i do know that arrived. as such, i think i need to resend my letter, but maybe to the address i found on another thread provided by a Trading Standards officer:

 

Consumer Debt Recovery Team

Lloyds TSB plc

Queens Road Quadrant

Brighton BN1 3XJ

 

Apparently anything sent to BLS gets sent on to there anyway.

 

Also, I have had a further threat-o-gram from BLS saying that they have asked me to bring my payment plan up to date or cantact them and I have 'failed to do either'. I must pay the full balance now or contact them by telephone. Then my favourite part;

 

'Failure to do so would mean we would have to consider making contact with you by telephone or by instructing LTSB to consider whether a personal visit is required.'

 

Bless, they really want to hear my dulcit tones, don't they. As I have previously written to BLS/LTSB to say do not ever telephone me and never darken my door, is this letter a further breach by BLS? Basically as I am going to write to them one last time (I'll use special delivery this time and hope for the best!) is it worth me also having a moan about this latest letter as well.

 

Thank you for your help!

Depends what your local TS is like TBH but worth giving them a call via consumer direct (these will notify the OFT for you as well if you request it) or see if you can get a direct number for them from your local counsil website. You might have to gently remind them that you are making a complaint for breaches of OFT guidlines and the CPUTR ;)

I have just come across another thread where someone asked if there was some sort of OFT rule about not soliciting payment of debts by credit card. Is this the case as BLS helpfully suggest I pay by debit or credit card, so if they are not playing nicely, I will put that in my letter too!

Oh dear. They've put it in writing have they? Straight to TS with it and make sure it's reported to the OFT as this is in direct breach of OFT guidlines. If TS need help with which one it is come back here and I'll tell you :)

Typical Murphy's Law - after sending my letter off to BLS/LTSB again yesterday, I now have a letter from LTSB together with a £10 postal order which basically acknowledges my letter of 8th March. However, the letter I sent yesterday by special delivery gives them another 30 days to respond to me!! Oh well - I will have to wait and see now - roll on the end of May!

Oh I am!! I am still tempted to honour my letter of yesterday, then if they tried to later take me to court, I could prove that I gave them a further chance to prove that the debt was correct. Also, I feel a bit bad morally stopping paying for a debt that I know is owed (well - it's probably all the charges and interest I am paying off now!!)

They gave up their rights for you to settle this in a civilised way when they first contacted you demanding payment!
