Hello

 

I am new to this post but I would love some template advice etc to send to welcome as I have been paying a reduced amount since mar 2009 of £89 instead of £300 per month as this is all I can afford as my personal life change .....

 

I have paid this every month by Standing order but now I am receiving letters and phone call saying I am in arrears ! I told them I can not pay anymore then I am doing and have sent them a expenditure sheet of all my payments a month I have not heard back from them since I sent it just before chrismas and now I have receive a letter of legal proceedings...

 

I have rang them on new years eve and ended up hitting my head on a wall because all they can say is get in to a debt payment plan but as I said I have been paying them as much as I can and it was arrange earlier in 2009 to be able to pay this with them !

 

so I need help with a letter to tell them the same as I have told them so I can see the debt come down not going up as it is !

 

sorry but I am a bit of a novice with this because all the other debts I have I was able to come to a arrangment

 

Happy New Year

 

and thank you for any help I will receive for this

I 'think' (i may be wrong) but you can ask for interest to be frozen on the account which would mean the amount you are paying would come off the balance rather than make a very small hole in the interest im not 100% how you would go about this but im sure someone will be along with some advice asap. Have you checked this loan is enforcable? may be worth it to CCA and SAR them and let the masterminds here have a look, you never know you may be lucky and find it isnt enforceable after all just like most other peoples ;) Happy New Year and Welcome to CAG :D

no worries we all have to start somewhere ;)

 

CCA - is a request for a true copy of your agreement (i.e signed by you)

 

SAR - is a request for ALL information they hold on you and any accounts they have related to you

 

There are template letters for these (ill find them and post them now)

 

CCA cost £1

SAR cost £10

 

and i think most people would agree they are well worth the money for the information you find out :)

and of course this one (send this first with the £1 postal order)

 

Re: Account Number: xxxxxxxxxxxx

 

This letter is a formal request pursuant to s.77(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I require you to provide me with a true copy of the credit agreements relating to the above accounts, together with any other documentation the Act requires you to provide.

 

I expect you to comply fully and properly with this request, within the statutory time limit. You are reminded that should you fail to comply with my request, the provisions of s.77(6) will apply.

 

Your attention is drawn to ss.5(2), 3(b),6 and 7 of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUTR).

 

I enclose a postal order in the sum of £1.00, which is the statutory fee. Note that these funds are not to be used for any other purpose.

 

If you are unable to comply fully and properly with this request, you should confirm this in writing at the earliest opportunity, and certainly within the statutory time limit for compliance, and return the fee.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Harassment by telephone

 

 

ACCOUNT NUMBER: XXXXXXX

 

Dear Sirs

 

I am writing in relation to the quantity and frequency of telephone calls that I have received from your company, which I deem to be personally harassing.

 

I have verbally requested that these stop, but I am still receiving calls. (Delete if necessary)

 

I now require all further correspondence from your company to be made in writing only.

 

I am of the view that your continued harassment of me by telephone puts you in breach of Section 40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970, and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

 

If you continue to harass me by telephone, you will also be in breach of the Communications Act (2003) s.127 and I will report you to OFCOM, Trading Standards and The Office of Fair Trading, meaning that you will be liable to a substantial fine.

 

Be advised that any further telephone calls from your company will be recorded. (**Even if you don‘t yet have recording equipment!!**)

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Data Protection Act 1998

Subject Access Request

 

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

 

ACCOUNT NUMBER: xxxxxxxxx (or multiple numbers if more than one account)

 

 

Please supply me with copies of all the data which you hold on me in relation to any matter and in any form and for any period of time.

Please note that I require disclosure of any personal data which you hold on me for the entire period of my dealings with you.

The Subject Access is not limited to my transaction history and it is not linited merely to 6 years of historical information.

Additionally, where there has been any event in my account history over this period which has required manual intervention by any member of your staff, or any other person, I require disclosure of any indication or notes which have either caused or resulted in that manual intervention, or other evidence of that manual intervention in relation to my financial business with you.

I require all information on details of all insurance products supplied by welcome financial services. This is to include the statement of means, statement of price, details of all insurance premium tax paid, and underwriting sheets.

If mortage indemnity insurance has been added to the agreement, i require all details on who this premium was paid to, and who underwrites this insurance.

 

If you are unable to supply this data because there has been no such manual intervention, then please be so kind as to confirm this in your response.

 

I enclose the statutory maximum fee of £10. You have 40 days in which to comply. Furthermore, if I discover that you have levied disproportionate penalties or charges which are invalid under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations against me, then I shall be reclaiming them together with any interest charges which you have levied on them.

As it is your wrongdoing and mishandling of my account which has created the necessity for this Subject Access Request, I shall also be reclaiming the enclosed £10 DPA subject access request fee.

 

If there is specific information which you require in order to satisfy yourself as to my identity, please let me know by return. However, please note that the above address is the one which you normally use to communicate my private business to me and which you have hitherto found to be acceptable.

I would be happy to collect the Data from my local branch.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Well chez must be wondering just what he has blundered into.

 

To explain to him & the guests. It`s just an Old Sailors Banter (HONEST). This is The Welscum Forum, not The Kylie Minogue Website. LOL:roll:

 

Great Advice Given though Beyond. Well Done. Some of the Great and The Good are always in the background, so if we give that sort of advice we will not be far wrong.

 

I could never give advice on Figures or how the Law would relate though.

 

I will take you up on the offer soon ( Whoops Sorry Mr Beyhond, that`s the Offer to Take Me through PhotoSucket) LMAO. :cool::cool::cool:

 

Cheers, MARK

I`ve managed it successfully on a few occasions. The problems appear when I don`t know what has gone wrong. lol.

 

Some times the document I need to edit is massive when I use Paint. I worked out my self that this is down to the amount of pixels used when scanning. Oh YES i`m using the Jargon now, cracked it. Obviously I know what I`m doing then (NOT).

 

When it comes to Photosucket though. I can Upload ( good Word eh?) several docs in the order I want, but then they appear in totally the wrong order. Why?

 

Sorry beyhond got to dissappear till this evening . I will set up the scanner and PM you if you don`t mind? Give me a time that is convenient and I will gladly pick your brains. Thank You. If you have the time I would really appreciate it.

 

Cheers, MARK:D
