    • So I have to ask you once again, has sweatband eventually refused to accept any responsibility for this now that you have been knocked back by the manufacturer? I'd be very grateful if you could address this question which I've already asked twice now.
    • Hi    The first one was purchased in August 2020 and returned in October. This is the link to the page.    https://www.sweatband.com/proform-pro-1500-treadmill.html   We wanted to research our rights so we were clear on them before going back to the manufacturer or sweatband. The last communication was with the manufacturer who sweatband directed us to and the manufacturer told us the location of the treadmill was unsuitable and we had to move it our it would void our warranty.    I wonder if you could be kind enough to let me know if you think the link above affects our protection under the consumer rights act?    Thank you again  EM0149
    • I notice that you haven't addressed my question as to whether sweatband.com have actually refused to take any responsibility for this now.
    • Thanks! I've had several successes in the past 4 years or so which stemmed from a financially difficult part of my life around 2011/13. Basically I was financially trapped with Quick Quid, in a cycle of increased borrowing, during this I'd opened three catalogue accounts: Studio, JD Williams and Simply Be , 2 credit cards (Aqua and Barclays) and was juggling finances. In that time I had got 2 CCJs plus 2 defaults so things were pretty tight. I was using most of my available credit until things eventually became unsustainable. When I moved house I used the deposit to pay off Quick Quid and got into arrangements to repay the catalogues. The credit card limit was still rising until 2017 when I borrowed the balance of nearly £6000 from a family member and cleared the Aqua card. The Barclaycard had already defaulted. In 2017 I began action for irresponsible lending against Quick Quid. Basically they could not show the criteria they used to make lending decisions  and kept lending to me so I won the case. I was refunded all interest and fees  and charges plus 8% pa. When it was upheld it gave me the confidence to challenge JDW and SB. These were also upheld and they had to repay interest, fees and charges plus 8% from the second credit limit increase which amounted to about £1200 each. I challenged Aqua where my redress covering 6 years fees, interest and charges accrued to nearly £9000.  Barclaycard was not upheld but the default was moved back to an earlier date meaning it expires sooner.  All my IRL cases succeeded because none of these companies could prove that they had diligently checked my financial history. My credit report clearly showed that I was using a high or at limit proportion of available credit and that I'd accrued two unconnected CCJ's and 2 defaults throughout the lives of these accounts. Whether they should have given me the accounts in the first place was also brought into question but it was the sustained but gradual increase of CL's time and time again without proper checks. JDW were unable or unwilling to show the ombudsman what criteria they used. It only appeared that because I paid on time they continued to offer increases where in reality I was actually juggling finances like a fine balancing act.  It would appear that the FOS are looking at catalogue debt as I know when my cases against JDW and SB were being investigated they mentioned this.  My case against Studio should conclude soon. I was curious as to why now Cabot are trying to cut their losses by offering such a hefty discount. I can only summise that Studio are trying to buy back the debt for less.  
    • They have made an offer  Remind them in no uncertain terms that under CONC they are responsible for the conduct of their agents , (research and quote this) and negotiate a payment plan of their offer As dx says we really need all the details to understand the full picture

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I'm not sure, its not clear at all - like I said, I am 99 percent sure this debt was sold on to Frederickson or maybe they acted for Egg? I just have a feeling that Brian Carter is trying to get the money and using Egg as the claimant when its no longer with them, as it states any money has to be passed on to him directly.

There's a few versions of the CPR request letter around, I've decided to go with an amended shorter version:

 

 

Your address

 

Brian Carter

 

 

 

Dear Sir,

 

Re: (Claimant's name) v (Your name) Case No:

 

 

CPR 31.14 Request

 

On (date) I received the Claim Form in this case issued by you out of the Northampton County Court. I was most suprised to receive this claim as I received no Letter Before Action, merely a letter giving me 48 hours notice of your intention to issue the claim, which clearly breaches Civil Procedure Rules, a matter which will be brought to the attention of the court.

 

I confirm having returned my acknowledgement of service to the court in which I indicate my intention to contest all of your claim.

 

 

Please treat this letter as my request made under CPR 31.14 for the disclosure and the production of a verified and legible copy of the documents mentioned in your Particulars of Claim:

 

(You will appreciate that in an ordinary case and by reason of the provisions of CPR PD 16 para 7.3, where a claim is based upon a written agreement, a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached to or served with the particulars of claim and the original(s) should be available at the hearing. Further, that any general conditions incorporated in the contract should also be attached.)

 

1. A photocopy of the signed, executed credit agreement and any terms and conditions that applied to the account at the time of default and at the time the account was opened.

The copy should be easily legible. If a copy of a microfiche document is supplied, please confirm whether the original document is still in existence. If it is, then a copy of the ORIGINAL will be required to be produced.

If a copy of the original document no longer exists, then you must state this.

 

 

2. A true copy of any Default Notice issued, with confirmation of method and proof of posting

 

3. A true copy of any Termination Notice issued by the claimant.

4. A full breakdown of the amount claimed including any charges, late payment and over limit fees.

5. Any other documents that the Claimant seeks to rely on in court.

 

 

If a copy of the above documents is to be relied on in court rather than original, a copy of the Notice of Proposal to adduce hearsay evidence is required under s2(1) of the Civil Evidence Act 1995, together with proof of the authenticity of the documents as required under s8(1)(b) of the Act, including, but not limited to:

 

a) A copy of the procedure(s) used for copying, storing and retrieving documents

b) A copy of the relevant log entry showing the time and date of the scan or copy, the name of the member of staff making the copy, the method used for copying, storage and retrieval and time and date of destruction of the original documents

c) Copies of internal and external audit reports covering the entire period from the date of the copy to the present to demonstrate that the procedures have been complied with

d) Copies of Quality Assurance accreditation certificates covering the entire period from the date of the copy to the present to demonstrate that the procedures and audit processes comply with the appropriate quality standards

Although your claim is for a sum which is not more than £5,000.00 and will in all likelihood be allocated to the small claims track for determination upon my delivering a defence, at this moment in time I have not delivered my defence and the case has not been allocated to a track. In consequence the provisions of CPR 27(2) are of no effect and you should not seek to avoid compliance with your CPR 31 duties by claiming otherwise.

 

You should ensure compliance with your CPR 31 duties and ensure that the documents I have requested are copied to and received by me within 7 days of receiving this letter.

 

Your CPR 31 duties extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for the originals of the documents I have requested, the better for you to be able to verify the document's authenticity and to provide me with a legible copy.

Further, where I have requested a copy of a document, the original of which is now in the possession of another person, you will have a right to possession of that document if you have mentioned it in your case. You must take immediate steps to recover and preserve it for the purpose of this case.

Where I have mentioned a document and there is in your possession more than one version of that same document owing to a modification, obliteration or other marking or feature, each version will be a separate document and you must provide a copy of each version of it to me. Your obligations extend to making a reasonable and proportionate search for any version(s) to include an obligation to recover and preserve such version(s) which are now in the possession of a third party.

 

In accordance with CPR 31.15© I undertake to be responsible for your reasonable copying costs incurred in complying with this CPR 31.14 request.

 

If you require more time in which to comply with this request you must tell me in writing. You must tell me before the time for compliance with this request has expired. In telling me you require more time you must tell me what steps you have taken and propose to take in order to comply with this request and also state a date by when you will comply with this request. In addition your statement must be accompanied with a statement that you agree to an extension of the time for me to file my defence. Your extension of time must be not less than 14 days from the date when you say you will have complied with my request and you must state the new date for filing my defence.

 

If you are unable to comply with this request and believe that you will never be able to comply with this request you must tell me in writing.

 

Please note that if you should fail to comply with this request, fail to request more time or fail to agree to an extension of time for the filing of my defence, I will make an application to the court for an order that the proceedings be struck out or stayed for non-compliance and a summary costs order.

 

I do hope this will not be necessary and look forward to hearing from you.

 

yours faithfully

 

Wait for others to comment and add/remove anything if necessary. Once it's good to go, you need to send it asap by Special Delivery to Bryan Carter.

 

I think you should also send a Subject Access Request directly to Egg, for all the details they hold on you.

Here's the template letter. Enclose a PO for £10 and send recorded delivery.

 

I think that's it for now, and welcome other comments/suggestions.

Have I missed anything? :)

Can't take any credit for it..I've just blended the short version from the CPR thread linked earlier with a couple of other things. :)

Hi Annubis - just dropping by at Elsa's request :)

 

IMO the CPR31.14 is asking for a bit too much - you can only request anything mentioned in the POC so that would be the agreement & the monthly payment plan they say you have agreed to. All the rest should be included in your SAR request (and/or a CPR18 request to BC - no fee) which I agree you also need to send to Egg using the template she has linked to & adding in a request for a copy of the original credit agreement if they hold it & the info in 2,3,4 of the CPR31.14 letter above. You will need to send £10.00 PO with it (do not send a cheque, do not sign the letter - print, cross thro' sig or use dig. sig to prevent copying & pasting ;))

 

You have 14 days to acknowledge service with the court & (if you state you will defend fully) a further 14 days to compile a defence. The AS can be done online.

 

Do not believe anything BC might tell you re. procedures etc. - you would not be the first that had been mislead by them :rolleyes:

 

Also see comments below:

 

 

1. Can I still defend if it is the case that I owe some

 

You should state you intend to defend the whole amount at this stage

2. Do I need to pay for a CPR request, and if so, who do I pay? I am presuming BC will need to supply all the paperwork I request?

 

Elsa has answered this - no fee for CPR request

 

3. How do I notify the court that I am awaiting paperwork requested, do I just ring them?

 

CAGers will help you deal with this as you go thro' the process

 

6. As I intend going bankrupt very soon, do I need to notify BC and the court of this? Will going BR stop all this?

 

Has notification of BK been served on you or is this a 'voluntary' arrangement? If BK is finalised, all creditors including CCJs will be dealt with as part of that process; in the meantime you have to defend this at all costs!

 

 

1. The left hand box says:

 

THE CLAIMANTS CLAIM IS FOR THE BALANCE DUE UNDER AN AGREEMENT WHICH IS NOW DUE AND PAYABLE. THE DEFENDANT AGREED TO PAY MONTHLY INSTALLMENTS UNDER ACCOUNT NUMBER XXXX BUT HAS FAILED TO DO SO.

 

AND THE CLAIMANT CLAIMS THE SUM OF XXXX

 

Is this sum the full balance of what is owed on your card?

(Be aware that BC have a reputation for 'splitting' a claim to obtain their fees & then go after you again for the balance. They can't do this but they may try :mad: & it needs nipping in the bud now if this is the case.

THE CLAIMANT ALSO CLAIMS INTEREST THEREON PURSUANT TO S.69 COUNTY COURT ACT 1984 LIMITED TO ONE YEAR TO THE DATE HEREOF AT THE RATE OF 8 PERCENT PER ANNUM AMOUNTING TO 0.00

 

Interest of any sum cannot be claimed on a credit agreement but this cna be dealt with in your defence

Bryan Carter is authorised to sign, but its not a signature, its just his name typed.

 

Egg Banking is listed as the claimant and this is for Credit card.

 

Bryan Carter has added charges on to the amount but these do not appear in that column, but in a column on the right hand side.

 

This will probably be his fee

 

However, this does not seem right to me as I am sure the debt was sold on to Frederickson International (which is an arm of Bryan Carter right?)

 

CPR requests should establish in due course if the debt has been assigned to FI & in what capacity BC are acting. Don't worry for now. See (6)

5. I think the card was taken out around 14 years ago, and the last acknowledgement was about 2 years ago when I was paying through DMP but advised to go bankrupt - since then I informed them and have been saving.

 

Who advised you to go BK & are you sure this is your only option? If so, what stage are you at?

6. It states Egg as the claimant, but I am sure that Frederickson took it over, so not sure why he lists them when it is infact, himself claiming.

 

If Egg are stated as Claimant, it would appear that the debt has not been fullt assigned to FI, they are merely acting as debt collectors.

Hi Foolishgirl,

Many thanks for looking in :)

Good point about the interest, I was wondering about that.

Re the CPR..I think the letter will have gone off now, but asked for the DN as well since it's needed in order to bring the claim at all on a CCA so hopefully we'll get away with that.

Annubis..you need to try to find your own copy of any Default Notice they may have sent. It will have been sent shortly (usually from 1 to 3 months) after you first stopped normal monthly payments.

It's a letter headed "Important, you should read this carefully...Default Notice served...etc etc" detailing nature of breach and what you need to do to remedy it. If they get it wrong, which they often do, it can help your case.

Ok so I got a letter this morning from Bryan - here is what it states:

 

Thank you for your recent letter, the contents have been noted.

 

We do not consider your request, in its entirety, to be reasonable. We believe this matter would most properly be allocated to the small claims track. It was our client's policy to issue agreements on or around the date of contract and statements throughout the duration of the agreement.

 

We confirm we have requested the necessary documentation from our client and hope to revert to you shortly.

 

We do require a further 28 day extension in order to obtain and file these documents.

 

We consent to an extension of time to file the Defence being 14 days from the date that documentation is sent.

 

We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

 

_______________________________

 

Ok, so can anyone advise my next step please?

Personally I wouldn't agree to the extension of time on the grounds that they should have had the docs available before they commenced the claim :mad:.

 

However you need to be seen to be reasonable by the court so IMO I would grant them an extension to a specific date (eg 20 August) 14 days after which you will submit a defence providing the docs. have been provided by the date specified & if they haven't, warn them that you will apply for a strike out of their case without further notice.

 

If you agree & need help with the letter, shout...

Dear Mr Carter,

Thankyou for your letter of xxxx in which you state that you feel that my CPR 31.14 request for documents is unreasonable in part, requesting an extension of 28 days to supply the documents.

I feel that my request was reasonable in view of the fact that, in order to justify issuing proceedings, the supporting documents should already have been in your possession.

 

However, in order to assist you I am prepared to agree to an extension until 20th August 2010.

Assuming I receive the documents, I will then submit my defence within 14 days of receipt.

If the documents are not supplied by that date I will apply to the Court for a strike out of the case without further notice.

yours sincerely

 

 

 

Something on those lines?

Excellent Elsa - would just make the following suggestion for inclusion:

 

Dear Mr Carter,

Thankyou for your letter of xxxx in which you state that you feel that my CPR 31.14 request for documents is unreasonable in part, requesting an extension of 28 days to supply the documents.

I feel that my request was reasonable in view of the fact that, in order to justify issuing proceedings, the supporting documents should already have been in your possession.

Assuming I receive the documents, I will then submit my defence within 14 days of receipt.

If the documents are not supplied by that date I will apply to the Court for a strike out of the case without further notice.

 

If I do not receive your written agreement to such by 13 August 2010, I will proceed in accordance with the Civil Procedure Rules.

 

yours sincerely

 

 

 

Something on those lines?

 

Elsa x

 

If you receive their agreement by 13th then you will have to write to the court stating that you have agreed an extension of time to submit a defence with the Claimant, enclosing a copy of their agreement. It just needs a letter, not a formal applic. but make sure you watch your deadlines re. timing. (send by Rec. Del)

Warning: BC can play dirty & this may well be a ruse for them to obtain judgment by default so cover your back at every turn.

Hi Guys, thanks so much!

 

FGirl, yes, I have done the AS online :)

 

Ok really need help with dates. The court papers were sent out on the 21st July, I received them on 23rd July but actually didn't get to see them to the 26th as I was too poorly and unable to move/do anything.

 

It is then that I came here, found you wonderful people and filled in the AS as advised.

 

Another issue is with the dates of this current letter, which I have prepared (but not yet printed) is today is Friday, special delivery is not going to get there until Monday now as it is after 1pm and I have not long been able to move - this is part of the problem because it takes me longer to see things or do things.

 

Anyway - do I need to extend the dates before I print the letter, considering that the 13th is next Friday and he won't get it until Monday? I was thinking of adding two days, would that be right?

 

Thanks so much for your help so far x

Service was on 23 July, therefore you must ensure the court receives your defence by 20 August (28 days after service) unless you get agreement to the extension from BC by 13th.

Demanding BC's consent by 13th is not unreasonable. Received Monday, he has 5 whole days to say yes or no - how long does it take to write a letter?

 

You also have to take into account that if they do not agree, you will have to have a defence in by the following Friday - not a lot of time to seek advice here, compile & submit, particulatly given your health problems.

 

Try & get that letter off tomorrow ....

Just a point of caution with the letter. Parties can only extend the time to file defence by up to 28 days (CPR 15.5). If there is agreement that defence is filed 14 days after receipt of docs it may take it beyond the 28 days. Why not just go get claimant to agree to extension of time by 28 days beyond 20 August? Tell them if they don't agree you will seek the extension of time by application and you will be seeking costs of the application. If they don't agree, go for order and go for an unless order then. If they do agree and they don't come up with docs by, say 14 days before the extended time ends go for your unless order then.

 

Just an opinion. Hope it is helpful.

Thanks both :)

 

Ok, now considering Robin's point, what should I do? I'm thinking back to the comment of BC playing dirty and winning by default - and then Robin points out

 

"Parties can only extend the time to file defence by up to 28 days (CPR 15.5). If there is agreement that defence is filed 14 days after receipt of docs it may take it beyond the 28 days."

 

Is this BC playing dirty? Should the letter be amended?
