    • Hi,     I'm in the process of voluntary termination of my moneybarn agreement, in accordance with secion 99(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I have returned the vehicle, it was collected by a 3rd party on behalf of MB, in driveable condition with fear wear and tear condition.  Their report states that the condition was "Average" (The options were Good, Average and Poor). I have paid more than 50% and recently, before starting the VT process spent £700 to make sure car is roadworthy (gearbox repairs). I am £880 over the 50% mark. Today I've received final billing letter estimating body repairs at over £1,300 (the bodywork is fine - peeling lacquer and alloy wheels would need refurb though). I've purchased the car at 7 years old with over 80k miles, through National Car Credit (pretty sure I've seen another topic on here about them). The car is now more than 10 years old, and I did take pictures + videos of the car before it was collected.   Now. I've had a payment holiday through April and May (which I don't dispute and will willingly cover the amount that they're asking for this payment holiday term) But however I'm not okay with covering the bodywork repairs for a car that is over 10 years old and wasn't excellent condition the day I've purchased it. It came with no service history book and only one key (on my own expense I've purchased another one and had it programmed)   No arrears on the account, no missed payments (just 2 month agreed payment holiday - between myself and MB) which I'm okay to cover. Given the car back in drive-able condition (it was very noisy the week before it was collected, hence why I've spent money on repairs) half of tank of petrol, kept tax up to the day it was collected.   Advice would be appreciated, thank you.   dx: I can't pm you as I haven't got enough posts on here, but if you'd like more details and see what has been sent and see the responses please PM me.     Thanks.
    • I am not a lawyer but I definitely think you are correct.   You will need evidence that Fast Track was not available on your way out - "Unknown reasons" sounds ominous. Do you have pictures/videos/written records to prove it?   Ryanair website states they are not responsible for you missing your flight as a result of fast track, but it doesn't say anything about not being responsible for the product they sold you not being available. Have you tried asking for a refund already?   Either way they sold you something that they did not provide - I don't see how this can be legal - and hopefully you should be able to prove it. Get written evidence that they refused to refund you (if you don't have it already) and take it straight to your card provider. (by many accounts it seems pointless to try and negotiate with Ryanair)
    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi,

 

Could someone please help, I have received a court letter regarding a debt I had over 5-6 years ago(could be more) in the letter it states I made an agreement, I have not made an agreement, I have not even spoke to this financial institution before, I think the debt is from when I had a Intelligent Finance account and credit card many years ago. I have scanned in the letter for you so you can see what it says.

 

I don't know what to do, I certainly can't afford it. Recently been made redundant

 

Please help.

 

Best

 

Adrian.

Update:

 

I am thinking of sending this letter as a response to Christopher Pinnion & Co as I found it somewhere else on this site, Would this be a correct reply???

 

Also what is the correct respone on the "Acknowlegment of Service" to the court based on this response

 

I intend to defend all of this claim or I intend to contest jurisdiction?

 

Please help as i'm worried I only have a certain amount of time.

 

Thankyou.

 

 

Me -v- Tessera Portfolio Management

Claim No: xxxxxxxx

 

Dear Sir or Madam

 

I write in relation to the above claim issued in the Southend County Court

 

The pleaded case offers insufficient information to allow me to plead a proper defence, i do not recognise the sums pleaded to be owing to one single account and i believe that there has been a grave error in your pleadings, accordingly, i require the following

 

1) i require you to provide me with copies of the agreements under which the amounts pleaded in your vague claim are owed. Additionally where the agreements are regulated agreements which are regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, i require copies of any default notices and a full break down of the sums claimed including how those sums accrued and under what accounts and also statements showing how the sums claimed are calculated and accrued.

 

I require this information by no later than 4 pm on 2nd August 10, i also require you to agree to an extension of 28 days to allow me to file a proper defence once i am provided with the information which i am seeking.

 

If you fail to reply or fail to provide me with sufficient information to allow me to plead a proper defence i will make an application to the court to order you to plead your case in accordance with the CPR and the Practice Directions and i will seek an order for my costs in doing so.

 

I reserve the right to refer to the contents of this letter on the question of conduct and costs if an application for an extension of time/ discovery of documents/ amendment of pleadings etc is necessary. I cannot plead the defence without the information that has been requested and i am sure that the court will take this view also given that i am a litigant in person.

 

I look forward to your reply

Possibly yes but never at this address, When i was at my ex partners address 3 years ago maybe, I'm not even on the electoral role at my new address.

 

What i don't understand is they are saying I made an agreement which i obviously haven't????

In the meantime you should at least acknowledge the claim within 14 days. This will then give you 28 days from the original date of service to submit a defence

Cheers,

 

So hold off sending the letter but send the "Acknowledgment of Service" to the court.

 

In the form which box should I tick, I have no knowledge of laws so please help,

 

1. I Intend to defend all of this claim.

2. I Intend to defend part of this claim.

3. I intend to contest Jurisdiction.

 

Also do I send it to the court address or to Christopher Pinnion?

 

Thanks

I don't see any harm in sending the letter, after all you have no idea what the alleged debt relates to.

I would omit:

i also require you to agree to an extension of 28 days to allow me to file a proper defence once i am provided with the information which i am seeking.

1. because they have no authority to do that

2. even if they had, they won't

 

I suspect the debt may well be Statute Barred. Seems odd the claim is only for £250 so called arrears, why not the entire debt.

Ok, Thank you

 

I will send the form to the court and also the letter to Christopher Pinnion & Co with the line above omitted.

 

I also find it very strange these guys are only asking for £250????

 

Once again thanks for your help. I very much appreciate it.

In another similar claim on your forum, someone suggested sending this to the court along with the "Acknowledgment of Service" to the court, Could I send this too??? I am no legal expert, sometimes wish I was.

 

Thanks.

 

1.The claimants particulars of claim are vague and fail to disclose any cause of action, they appear to be an abuse of the process in that they fail to deal with the basic rules of pleading in accordance with the CPR. Accordingly the Claimants claim should be struck out pursuant to CPR 3.4(2)(a)& ©

 

2. Without admission that any cause of action is shown by the Claimant it is denied that the Claimant has a claim whether as pleaded or at all.

 

3. No documents supporting the claims in the particulars have been offered which the defendant needs to establish what agreement it is that this action is based upon, how the figures claimed are accrued, what type of accounts it is that the claim is based upon. The Claimant even fails to plead whom the money is due to and when the cause of action arose.

 

4.Without clarification of the claimants claim, the defendant is extremely disadvantaged and the claimant’s claim appears without merit.

 

5.Further to above the defendant is unable to plead effectively or at all. The defendant is embarrassed.

That could be used as your defence, especially if by the time it's due to be submitted Pinnions have not replied or refused to give details ( you could then include their refusal)

 

If it turns out to be IF a/c and you have not made any payments within the last 6 years, then the debt is Statute Barred.

Apply to have your costs re-imbursed;)

Also, make very sure that the court has received this discontinuance notice in case they are pulling a fast one

Thanks for the reply,

 

How do I find out if the court has received the discontinuation Notice? Phone them?

 

Does this mean they cannot chase me anymore?

 

Also how do I calculate what costs are involved?

 

Thanks

Yes ring the court,

For your costs youre allowed 9.50 per hour as a LIP. So you need to add up all the time spent dealing with each letter theyve sent, WS, claim etc.

Plus postage costs.

If you do it in chronological order, you'll have a good idea what youve been doing.

 

There is a spreadsheet and good write up by Surfaceagent about how to present this.
