    • I know.   I think I remember that the morning after the referendum Boris or Nigel admitted that the £350 million for the NHS wasn't true.
    • He'll just write something on the side of a bus and that will make everything OK.  The very fact that Boris is so far ahead in the running is proof that they can get away with just about anything so will continue to lie. Seriously, it's pretty obvious they regard the electorate with contempt.
    • Good point, hightail.   And assuming Boris wins, how is he going to explain to party members that the EU won't renegotiate? Or doesn't he care because the decision will be back with Parliament?
    • Update, new tactic from Cabot?? After a quiet period I suddenly get a call to my mobile asking for me by my first name to which i answered yes, (my name) speaking. Caller then says this is Cabot Financial, my reply, never heard of you sorry. I ended the call and blocked the number ( a mobile). Ten minutes later I get a text message stating: Hi, its Cabot click this secure message link if you want to hear something beneficial to you ( or words to that effect). I deleted the message and blocked the sender but I am curious as to what this ploy is. I am guessing by clicking the secure message link I will be acknowledging the debt and thereby resetting the statute barred clock. Have any other Forum members experienced the secure message approach? Thanks in advance.
    • I doubt they really do believe it.  They believe the party membership will believe it - and they already know they'll believe just about anything.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi, Sharon

 

What stage are you at - initial request for repayment, letter before action (LBA) or filling out the claim form?

 

If it's the initial request, you can send it to your local branch. They'll pass it on to the right department. Be sure to give them only 14 days, though - and specify calandar days!

 

I have found this really useful:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/faqs-please-read-these/31460-step-step-instructions.html

 

The whole FAqs section is helpful. It takes a while to read but it answers a great deal and helps to reassure that the job can be done.

I've been sent the allocation questionnaire in the post today, but I'll really need some help with it as I don't know what I'm doing. If anyone could help me through it could they get in touch please? I'd be very grateful for the assistance.

The POC I sent on MCOL were as follows (unfortunately I didn't see the business POC until I'd already sent it).

 

I have a business account contract with the

defendant bank dated 2000-present, which is

conducted on their standard terms and

conditions. I am claiming the return of money

taken by the defendant in the way of charges

from 22nd March 2001 to 18th April 2006 plus

the interest they have levied on those

charges. The bank's charges are a

disproportionate penalty and therefore

unenforceable as they are contrary to common

law. I have repeatedly asked the bank to

justify their charges but they have declined

to do so.

 

The claimant calculates that the defendant

has taken £11,399.00 from my business account

over this period.

 

The claimant claims interest under section

69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate

of 8% a year from 22nd March 2001 to 26th

September 2006 of £2,367.74.

I handed in my AQ today, total claim amounting to nearly £14,250.

 

As far as I'm aware, business account holders definitely CAN claim back bank charges. My advice would be to just go for it.

 

I'll look out for your thread when you decide to take the plunge. :)

And good luck with that amount Ant. I reckon mine is up there too

Don't be daunted by the amount of money you're claiming when you've calculated it all. The banks can't risk going to court and losing just for the sake of trying to successfully defend a single claim.

Thanks for the comments and support. I handed in my AQ on the 20th November, received Cobbetts' AQ the day after in the post. They're applying to strike out the case, but I have been assured that this is unlikely to happen.

Have they given a reason for applying to have the claim struck out?

 

I had Cobbetts AQ back the other day for my claim of £22k and they haven't applied for anything other than allocation to the multi track.

They said I never 'properly particularised my claim', even though I faxed them revised particulars within their 14 day deadline, and also phoned them to confirm receipt of said particulars.

 

I also sent them to the court, so I should have no problems hopefully.

Received a date for the allocation hearing today, it's on the 14th February 2007, which seems absolutely ages away.

 

I've got to admit, I'm getting tired of waiting for this now. By the time that hearing comes around, it'll have been around 8 months and still a settlement isn't close. Seems like a ridiculous amount of time to wait, since a lot of claims are sorted from start to finish in less than half that time.

Hang in there the bank are probably banking(no ouun intended) on you getting fed up and calling it a day if they waste enough time, it is ridiculous. Have you complained to the FSA? There is a very useful article from the daily mail published Nov 8th regarding the time wasting of banks regarding bank charges and their inappropriate use of the courts to deter people from taking their complaint up I will find thread and post it for you to have a look at.

KEEP GOING :)

The key date is disclosure. If you've been allocate to fast tack or multitrack then there is a date fo disclosure of documents. They have to list everything they want to present at court - which will include justification of their charges.

I doubt they'll want to do that, so hang on - it will be sooner than you fear!

I'm thinking of withdrawing this claim and going for the contractual interest. It would put the claim close to £30,000 I think, and I've got a crippling £25,000 debt that needs to be paid.

 

Does anyone think this would be worth doing?

Sorry for not keeping you updated, haven't been on for a while as I'd heard nothing from Cobbett's. Got a letter from them today offering me £7,050 with the usual conditions attached.

 

I want to reject this as they're clearly worried. The allocation hearing isn't long off and they're trying to settle as soon as possible.

 

How do I go about this?
