    • Different statements. One has “at 59 mph overtaking on the approach” and the other “it was overtaking on the approach and in ....... at 49 mph”. So not the same statement (same ethos, different sentence structure).   perhaps they chose that site for the officer because it is an accident hotspot, and they know people do dodgy overtakes (while speeding) there .....??  
    • Hi.   I've moved your thread to the Bailiffs forum. People should be along to advise later.   HB
    • So a little update;   Of the 6 letters I sent 3 were acknowledged. One accepting £1/month for now and two from the same creditor trading under different names asking for full I&E which I haven't done.   In a moment of madness I managed to depsoit 5k to a gambling site I didn't have due to paypal's crazy policy of allowing payments which are to be collected by direct debit after a couple of days to gambling sites! Mad they allow this but this will show as a negative paypal balance (in a different account to the original "debt"). The first paypal -£5k account has been closed and passed to a DCA now. I have ignored them.   My council has appeared to have stepped up their collection efforts for £2.5k in alleged housing benefit overpayment from 2015/16. I have acknowledged their letters over the past 3 years each time by email but they rarely respond to my pleas. I truly think if there was overpayment then it was for less than half the amount they claim. At the time I didn't think I was being overpaid because I wasn't really working but I had stopped claiming JSA/ESA (and told them as much) but earned a couple of hundred pounds a month from sporadic work.   Also what I thought was a dormant debt from 2016 to Halifax has been actually sold ( to caboot? I think. Hard to keep track of everyone)   I've been getting phone calls daily but ignoring them for the most part. I did request all communication in writing in my original letters.   I feel incapable of dealing with these creditors and whilst initially I was feeling that I would be happy to just ignore all the letters (arreas, defaults and the like) and phone calls for an indefinite amount of time and  hope to make it 6 years to statute barred-ness and accept or defend any CCJ attempts that did arrive. I figured that avoiding these creditors for 3 months so far is 5% of the way there to statute barred! But I figre for these fairly sizeable amounts they probably won't all let it go and I will get some CCJ docs (never had to deal with that) However now my mood and thinking has changed.    I am looking again at insolvency. I'm over the DRO limit now so its BR or nothing. I was wondering why you said to not consider this and it would be stupid @dx100uk? Although shirking my debts/responsibilities it does seem like an "easy" way out at the moment. It would be so nice to know that what's done is done and to be able to draw a line in the sand and start again in a year or so and not have to avoid creditors or worry about what's coming next...   It certainly would help the environment what with the amount of letters that are arriving already(!) considering the first payment I missed was october/november (excluding the old halifax and council debts). I am exordinately stressed about it now even though I thought I would be already . Any advice would be great if it was to get my head out of the sand and contact people/do the ignoring thing and seeing what happens/reasons  to do or not to do bankruptcy for these unsecured debts?   Thanks      
    • Hi everybody   Had a knock on my door and was confronted by either a Bailiff or enforcement agent (not sure about the specific job title). When I opened the door he stuck his foot in so I couldn't close the door. I was video taping him so I took a few steps backward (to get him in shot) and he just fully entered the property despite me saying that I was denying him entry and he refused to leave thereafter.   Turns out that he was there to collect a court issued fine. I think from a Magistrates Court. He worked for this outfit:   www.marstonholdings.co.uk   The reason for the fine was something to do with "driving without car insurance". Now I had a cheap car a few years ago but it broke down and would cost more to fix than it was actually worth. So I sold the car for scrap and cancelled the insurance. Turns out you have to inform the DVLA when you scrap a car and them that it is no longer on the road (I was unaware). So this was the circumstances of the visit.   My question is did he have the lawful right to enter the property? I always thought these people were like vampires i.e. they can only come in if you invite them in.   tia Bear

Excellent news for you Durkin, it is about time that these low life companies took responsibility for the damage they cause to peoples lives with their actions.

 

 

I am a little way behind you with a similar case having proved in court that I had no debt with a company yet they are still updating defaults on the credit file.

 

 

Once again congratulations and best wishes to you.

Very pleased for Mr Durkin, shame that the findings of facts of the First Division cannot be disturbed, I think all he gets it £8K, not much given the stress this must have caused over the past 15 or so years.

 

A win for consumers though.

Congratulations to Richard for taking this on and winning, but so disappointed for him that the judges awarded only £8,000. :-(

If you read the Judgement it does seem fair to me that the damages were only £8000.

 

I note there are at least 3 threads on this, spose they could be merged.

Good to see that the court found a common sense way to rescind the credit agreement, personally I think that this aspect will be the greatest assistance to the consumer.

 

The section 75 argument failed and there was little mention of the general losses issue, except to say that they did not have the power to make a ruling on the issue. I cannot see how the situation regarding this has been changed.

 

Although I am sure that there will be a rash of CMCs which will argue otherwise.


DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES TO COLD CALLERS PROMISING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES FOR COSTLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH SO CALLED "EXPERTS" THEY INVARIABLY ARE NOTHING OF THE SORT

BEWARE OF QUICK FIX DEBT SOLUTIONS, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT INVARIABLY IS

I can see why they put the damages where they did but it's still not very much considering the length of it all and the stress Richard has been through.

I think it is a great result for consumers and it is common sense. If you buy a product, then return the product, you don't need a credit agreement for that product. That is it in a nutshell and the whole thing could have been sorted out in five minutes if anyone had employed a modicum of common sense.

Racking my brain for the main case on damages awarded for problems caused by reporting to CRA, am sure the award was £8,000 too.

Thanks for the support everyone.

 

I'm trying to push for a defamation claim now but it seems that it would cost too much.

 

British justice has failed, particularly in Scotland.

If the so called supreme court are powerless to institute previous determinations etc then they again are a waste of time = Also the so called cost to get justice degrades the British Legal system, as they could at outset sit around a table and discuss issues there and then instead of this proceedure that proceedure etecetecetc, they obviously did not want to rock the boat of Banks etc having the upper hand and set precenence to further scandle claims.
