You should report this letter to the OFT. This is the kind of thing 1st credit have just been taken to task about - making threats of legal action that are unlikely to be carried out. This is their email address for a report:

 

enquiries@oft.gsi.gov.uk.

 

The OFT are finally beginning to wake up to what these cowboys are up to and the more their murky behaviour is reported, the quicker something will finally be done about it.

Hi OSW.....What exactly have they sent you ? Is it a bankruptcy petition ? or is it a statutory demand ? or is it another threatening letter ?

Can you clarify please ? Is it possible you are able to photo/scan up what they have sent you and post it up here (minus the personal details and anything that might identify you ?).....please send me a PM if you need help....you should set aside anything if they have indeed sent a statutory demand...

Lowells are acting on behalf of Egg or have bought the debt from them more than likely, either way it is their responsibility to provide the documentation.;)

Send them this letter recorded....they haven't responded to your CCA request, and it would seem they are trying to frighten you ino paying...

 

Dear Sirs,

 

I write in response to your letter dated XXXXX

 

Your letter is incorrect and frivolous, you are fully aware of legally valid reasons why no payment has been made on this account, namely that the agreement which underpins this account has not been supplied despite a perfectly valid request and furthermore, it is suggested that notwithstanding the failure to supply a copy, the agreement itself is improperly executed, devoid of all prescribed terms and deficient in respect of detail relating to APR, total charge for credit and statements of rights ,remedies and protections as required by schedules 1,2 and 6 Consumer Credit Agreements Regulations 1983

 

Therefore the agreement as outlined in section 65 (1) Consumer Credit Act must be laid before the court to be granted an enforcement order before any further action can be taken

 

It is my view that the court would not grant such an order due to the deficiencies that I have outlined within the agreement, further more this has already been raised with (name of original creditor/dca (delete if required) yet I note they have still assigned the account over to yourselves and the absence of any documents disproving my points itself speaks volumes

 

Therefore, I would indeed welcome the opportunity to place this before the court. furthermore should you proceed with the threats to issue a statutory demand/bankruptcy petition I will make an immediate application to have it set aside for the grounds outlined above, also I shall refer the judge to this letter when the matter of costs falls due

 

I trust this outlines my position clearly enough for you


PLEASE NOTE - I am not a legal expert, what is stated is my own opinion and from what I have learnt from this forum and my own experiences.

Went to send letter today -

she said case in late October found in favor of American express even without CCA

 

She wants to issued defence based on my neurological problem?

 

What do you think?

 

I said to her isn't it still not right for them to pass this to DCA. his should be directed back to Egg prior to action taken ?!

 

To which she agreed

 

Lost again??

The rep was probably referring to this case http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collection-industry/179236-tragic-case-judgement-because.html albeit she hasn't got the details right.

 

Carry on with the CCA request and see what they can produce. It is your legal right to request a CCA at anytime & I suggest you tell your rep to come on to this site and do some reading to brush up on consumer rights. :rolleyes:

It doesn't change your position don't worry. The cases quoted above are very rare indeed. The first involved MBNA who were able to submit to the court a cut-up credit card which had been returned to them thus proving in the absence of a CCA an agreement had actually been in place. The Rankine case involved a couple who went to court ill-prepared + the judge made errors of judgement allegedly.

Just spoken to Rep who couldn't tell me if she was CCCA or CAB skirted around question twce.

 

Also mentioned Rankine case and she had no idea what I was talking about given she keeps drawing reference to it you would think she would be familiar with the name.

 

Any Thoughts???

Hello everyone

 

lost pc for a week coming back withnews

 

Spoke to rep who states she has contacted Lowells

 

I email lowells in late feb to let them know they must address everything to rep however they have ignored this and keep contating me yesterday recieved two letter from them one saying they were going to call here between hours of - another saying that they note my comments in my email asking me to tell rep to contact them.

 

what a waste of a stamp - given they have already been given all contact details why would they send letter to me rather than rep ??

You could try sending this letter;

 

OFFICAL COMPLAINT

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

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.

 

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

 

I am of the view that your harassment of me by telephone puts you in breach of CPUTR 2008, 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.

 

Further to this if it is your intention to initiate a Doorstep Collection. I note that there is only an implied license under English Common Law for certain people to visit me on my property without express permission; the postman and people asking for directions etc (Armstrong v. Sheppard and Short Ltd [1959] 2 Q.B. per Lord Evershed M.R.).

 

Take note, I revoke license under English Common Law for you, or any of your representatives to visit me at my property and if you do so without my permission, you will then be liable to damages for a tort of trespass. You would also be conspiring in a trespass if you sent someone to visit me nevertheless. Any trespassers you attempt to send therefore will be dealt with accordingly.

 

I am also alarmed at the fact that I was told by one of your operators that you do not deal with Payplan, despite my bona-fide repayment plan with them, this person also threatened me with court action, and also threatened me with the prospect of a 'doorstep' visit.

 

As I understand it the OFT give CLEAR guidelines on debt collection which state the following.

 

2.6 (f) -

 

f. pressurising debtors to pay in full, in unreasonably large instalments, or to increase payments when they are unable to do so

 

g. making threatening statements or gestures or taking actions which suggest harm to debtors

 

2.8 ©

 

refusing to deal with appointed or authorised third parties, such as Citizens Advice Bureaux

 

, independent advice centres or money advisers

 

d. contacting debtors directly and bypassing their appointed representatives

 

 

e. operating a policy, without reason, of refusing to negotiate with debt management companies

 

It must be suggested with your apparent disregard for these guidelines, that your suitability to hold a credit licence must be brought into question

 

If I do not receive your company's official complaints procedures within the next 7 days, I will have no hesitation in reporting your company's behaviour to the OFT, TS, FOS, my local MP and The Undersecretary Of State For Trade And Consumer Affairs.

Be further advised that any further telephone calls from your company will be recorded.

 

I look forward to your reply

If that doesn't do the trick complain to the OFT, enquiries@oft.qsi.gov.uk mark it for the attention of the Licensing Team.


If what we say helps you, then please tip the scales.:cool:

I am worried because my rep has delayed me send 42mans letter -

She seems to be delaying me continously I don't understand why?

 

Given they have meant to have been working on this for over a year!

 

If I send them together it can't do any harm can it?

 

Gary I obviously changed letter above to written commnication harrasment rather than telephone harrassment - when they should be addressing it to rep ?

 

Its really not easy given I only have access to pc when my son brings laptop round?

Thank you so much i am sure that my rep (haha) is working against me !

I wish I could function for more than 16hours a week then I may be capable to deal with this myself.

 

So i had already instructed them to write to lowell and again request cca - another thing I thought of was if this term "we can enforce without an agreement" is stated shouldn't this be coming from OC not DCA

 

Yes two LONG years !!! I have asked rep to report this to relevant bodies but thus far I don't think she did it but she was rep no. 3

 

But where do I go from here - how do I tell rep to sort it out ?

 

Stressing stressing stressing -

 

but this site really relieves the excess :D

You can dispute an account where the OC does not supply a CCA, as in your case, this has gone on for 2 years, so nobody can argue with that. in which case Lowell's have no case in law to contact you. send them the letter that i gave you and refuse to deal with them. they are a bunch of chancers, I wrote off ten thousand quid because they could not produce a CCA, so you do the same.

 

You adviser sounds useless, so fire them and do the template letters yourself.

 

it will take just minutes, cut and paste what I have given you and insert your own details.
