    • 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

Good evening to whoever is on

i am writing with the hope that somebody can advice me with regards to my situation,i have two ccj,s one with barclays which is going along nicely and the other with link financial which is not working so well.

On the 30th of November 2006 i took out a credit agreement with G E Consumer lending for the sum of £10,252.00 and made regular payments untill sept 2007 when because of an unexpected major downturn in our income i was unable to make payments which were due on the 8th of the month

I missed part of septembers payment which was £164.54 october which was £193.25 and november and december which were both £199.22 although ge money took 8th dec on the 21st of december giving a total of £756.23.

ge money then went on to send me a default notice,dated 15th of dec which gave me until 6th of jan to remedy, they then took on the 8th of jan and feb payments of £196.46

On the 9th of april they then sent me a termination notice giving me 7 days. while all this was happening i was selling my house to move into a rented property to try and stop us from going under completely and i was also suffering from depression,fortunately we sold our house which enabled us to pay off the mortgage,secured loan and a debt to my brother in law

we completed our sale on the 16th of march 2008 and i wrote to inform ge money of our new address but the termination notice got sent to our old property which had been bought by a builder who was dividing it into two smaller house,s

Towards the end of july 2008 we received from the builder some junk mail and letters,in these letters was a notice of hearing ,poc and judgement in default. also in there was a hello letter from link saying ge money had assigned the debt to them. this letter was dated 23rd may,poc issue was dated 12th of june and judgement in default was dated 11th of july for an amount now incuding costs of £11,535.00 from cardiff county court. (this is were it gets fuzzy) Imust have spoken to link because in the middle of august i had a visit from a court bailiff at my new home with a charging order for my old home.

After writing to the DJ at cardiff the order was dismissed but i was ordered to make instalments of £51.00 pm starting 28/9/2008 this was then varied 8/1/2010 at my request due to me not being able to keep up,the reason for that was i lost my job may 2009 and also having to deal with my dad in law and my mum having both been dignosed with terminal illness in april 2009.dad in law passed away august 2009 and mum early jan 2010, god bless them

due to the stress of it all,instead of vaying the amount to £23.70 i varied it to £1,so the situation is i have had a notice of issue of warrant of execution dated 16th of july

i spoke on the phone with the bailiff and advised him i was filling out the foms for a set-aside of judgement which he is picking up 6/8/2010.

i believe there are good grounds for a set-aside but i am unsure about my defence,due to having paid money to link have i spoilt any defence with regard to ge money,s faulty default notice and lack of notice of assignment

i have spent quite alot of time in the last few months reading various threads, so have gained a small amount of knowledge,but these last 2 years have been difficult to say the least

if anybody could make any observations, they would be much appreciated

thank you

Hi,

 

you have had a really difficult time, and I hope things will improve for you soon. Anyway, I'm sure someone with more kowledge than me will advise you better than I can, but here goes. As I understand it, getting aa set aside should be straightforward if you did not receive the original summons (especially if you had told Link of your new address). Then you will be able to defend the claim.

 

However, I hope this suggestion is not too drastic, but now (I presume) you live in rented accommodation, have you considered bankruptcy? Defending claims can be time consuming and quite stressful. Maybe a clean break from your debts will allow you a future debt free.

 

There are costs involved. But you may be exempt from the court fee on grounds of low income. As for the £350 (?) deposit, you may think about applying for a grant from your water utility company. In my area, United Utilities award grants for the bankruptcy deposit. I think you have to go to an advice center who make the application on your behalf. If there is a similar scheme in your area, I'm sure you would be awarded a grant.

 

Just an idea, which I accept that some people may find too radical. My neice and her husband took this route, and for them it was the ideal solution.

 

Best wishes.

When did you inform GE Money you had moved and did you send the letter recorded delivery or receive any confirmation that GE Money knew you had moved. (If you don't have any confirmation you might need to send a SAR to GE Money for their comms log).

 

When did Link claim to have purchased the account and did you pay Link off your own back or just due to the Court Order.

A comms log (though different companies will give it different names) is where they record all attempts at contact, so when you write to them or phone them there should be a note on the system, the same when they write to or phone you. For example the comms log might show that GE Money received your letter telling them you'd moved, they then wouldn't be able to claim the claim form was sent to your last known address, they'd also have problems with the assignment as you need to be informed prior to them taking court action (it should be sent recorded del aswell)

Hi Stoney,

Really sorry to hear about all your problems.Puts mine in perspective!

You will not have any problems getting the judgement set aside, so download the form N244 and follow the various links on this great site.

You will then need to send a SAR to LINK to get all of the information they hold on you.

Come back on again when you have the details and better people than me will help.

have a set-aside hearing tomorrow at 10.40,i just wondered if any one could advise what level of infomation i need to provide to the judge.Having read lot of threads over the last few days regarding link financial (lncluding beachcomber60,zanzibars and deb4tlj from 2007) i feel i have a suitable defence if it gets set aside which include lack of assignment. an agreement not containing signatures from both creditor and debtor as referred to in section 61(1)(a) of the cca and a couple of other reasons.obviously i would not want to give too much info to the other side if not necessary.

Hi Stoney 47,

 

Can u give more details of why you didn't defend the original judgment?

 

If you have a valid reason why you couldn't defend you stand a good chance of getting the set aside.

 

The judge will want to find out two things:

 

1. Have you acted expeditiously once you realised there was a ccj against you?

 

2. Do you have a defence with a realistic chance of success?

 

If you can prove both of the above you'll be fine.

 

BAE :-)

as stated in my 1st post i was not living in the property that all the documents were sent too so received a judgement in default, due to a difficult time personally and a lack of knowledge i applied for a set-aside 3 months ago. i believe i have a realistic defence but not sure how much of it i have to present tomorrow.

Listen to what the Judge has to say. Be polite and respectful - address him as Sir and regardless of how things turn out thank him at the end - even if he is an ogre. Be prepared for anything and everything.

 

Whilst you may have grounds because you did not receive the original documentation the difficulty you may have is that you have admitted previously you owe the debt - unless you have some provision for paying it even if it is a different sum to that you are paying now.

 

Good Luck

Hi Stoney,

Good luck today,mate.

Let us know how you get on.

One word of advice.

Whatever happens today, the leeches will probably ask for costs, even if you get the set-aside.

If you do win, ask the DJ to reserve the question of costs till you defend the case. If you lose, make the DJ aware of your financial circumstances.

Good luck again.

I went to the court yesterday,link financials solicitor introduced herself and we went before the judge,who seemed reasonable enough and he asked me to state the reasons why my ccj should be set-aside so i started saying about not living at the property when the documents were first sent,but he cut in and send he wanted to know about my reference to links assignment,so i stated i did not believe it to be a legal asignment, he then asked if i owed link the money, i told him that i had an agreement with ge money through a double glazing company for a conservatory which i had signed the cash release form but had not been installed(another story altogether).

he then said "so you spent the money on something else",i said no it went too the consevatory company,he stated that required further discussion and went back to the assignment issue.

at this stage i was starting to get quite nervous,mouth was dry and my hand was starting to tremble, so had some water

he asked the solicitor if she had the NOA she held up a copy of links hello letter,so i said(i hope i am right)that was not an assignment and that as stated in "the law of property act 1925" an assignment had to be under the hands of the assignor.the judge asked the solicitor if she knew about this and she answered she did not.he also asked if she had the deed of assignment,that was also a no,he then got out a big white book to look at but could not find any reference.after thinking for a couple of minutes he said he was instructing link to produce all relevant paperwork including the deed and for me to give a more detailed defence and he would see us again in three weeks.

i came out of the court feeling quite chirpy and my confidence boosted

Hi stoney,

That seems a reasonable result and it gives better people than me the chance to help you out. It seems as if the judge may be clued up on these matters. Post up his judgement when it arrives and keep "bumping" this post until the big guns arrive.

At least you know what to expect now, but you will need to be well prepared.

It seems you have also interested one of our guests.

Isn't it strange that most Link threads have guests looking in! Hopefully, they may learn things and start doing the right thing, but I doubt it

Just posting an update

Set-aside hearing which had been adjourned so link could supply documents.was adjourned again because of links failure to supply documents by the due date,I

also sent a SAR request to link and on the paperwork they sent me,they seem to be admitting that hat the agreement is unenforcable.The memo report shows that they have written to ge money stating "the agreement provided is not executed,please provide a copy of executed agreement or confirm if not available". then a week later it shows that they have written to ge money again stating "unable to provide executed agreement-unenforceable". I think that provides a bit more power when i attend court

Yes take that in with you to show the judge, Internal admissions always incriminate and they have admitted themselves saying it is unenforceble. They may just withdraw the defence so they dont incur any charges. I would write to Link with a copy of that page and any you may want to use, Highlight the relevent part and state you will be using it as evidence, If they are thinking of bluffing the will think twice.
