    • there are over 15 erudio claimform threads here with how people have responded to their claim by entering a statute barred defence you need to be reading up as part of the self help of CAG as what to do how to do it whats next how things progress through the differing stages of the claim   dx  
    • Yes it is excessive and I don't think you have any choice other than to pay up. Sorry
    • Hi All, I would appreciate  a little bit of advice.   I parked in an  NCP car park on  a quiet Sunday afternoon and did not pay the parking charge due to the machine not working.    When presented, many months later with a £100 parking charge, I appealed and they turned me down, without even addressing my specific concerns. I have just now taken my appeal to POPLA, but am not confident that they will help.   From what I have read online, it seems that these NCP people are chancing their arm by asking me to pay £100 charge. If it goes against me, I will be tempted to send them a cheque for £3 to cover the fee and tell them to go forth and multiply.  Am I correct in saying that they are unlikely to start civil procedures against me? I would welcome views on this, please.
    • Hi all - this doesn't seem to be a common problem, so any advice would be appreciated. The first I knew of a parking notice (PCN) was a threatening letter from Debt Recovery Plus. It implies they are a debt collector, but they are simply used by Parking Eye to leverage muscle and try to frighten people. I never got any letter from ParkingEye: not the initial PCN, nor a Keeper Liability Notice, nor a Final reminder. Nope! Straight to DR+ nasty letter an astonishing 76 days after the reported event. (ironically all their post arrives successfully). This has meant 1) I am outside the appeal window (and ParkingEye have confirmed I can go jump) 2) I therefore have no verification number to go to POPLA appeal. I would consider conceding as life is too short except I am an authorised user of this parking space. It is simply that on that day, I forgot to log my registration at Hotel Reception. Normally - a PCN is issued and my work collages simply pop across to the hotel who cancel it with ParkingEye in the first few days after issue. The Hotel in question won't action my DR+ letter as they say that their contract is with ParkingEye AND (wrongly) that it is at the court stage. It is, of course, not at the court stage because these silly letters from these Debt Agencies are designed to mislead and obfuscate the facts. Has anyone had a similar experience and success appealing through some route or other?  I will be ever grateful they want to mug me unfairly for £170 because they failed to get me a timely PCN.
    • We are in the process of selling our house and the buyers solicitor has asked for proof of work that we had carried out which included damp proofing and cavity wall ties , i have the original quote but cannot find the guarantees as this work was carried out a very long time ago, so i contacted the company that did the work to see if they still have record of the work which they do and were more than happy to supply me with copies for ......£120 😳as you can imagine i said thanls but no thanks even my solocitor was gobsmacked is this the going rate ?? For a couple of bits of paper ? Surley its slightly excessive

I received letters from Lowells a few months ago chasing a debt of £334.56 from Redcats Finance. I sent numerous proove it letters which firstly they didn't respond to.

 

They have now responded with a letter saying that Lowells purchased the debt from Redcats Finance. The letter then goes on to say they have included statements as per my request. There iis then a load of photocopies of statements included.

 

I didn't request statements in my proove it letter!

 

How should I respond?

Lowlifes think that sending you a stack of statements proves you owe this alleged debt!:lol:

 

Does any of it look familiar? Or is it something a ten year old could knock with their crayons?

Words, horse and flogging come to mind !!!!

 

It must just have been an experiment, to see whether they could try to resolve any issues via these forums.

 

I suspect because it did not were here, it won't be used again.

 

They also contributed to other forums, who were more receptive, but have not posted again.


We could do with some help from you.

If you are going on maternity leave, whereby your pay will be a small amount compared to your usual salary, is there a way of writing to the creditors explaining this and asking for reduced monthly payments for a period?

What does this part of letter mean:

 

If interestautolinker.com autolinking image or other charges are being added to the account, we would be grateful if you would freeze these so our debt does not increase.

 

Is that the companies that operate the interest percentages!

Ahh. Don't worry, that's a glitch

 

autolinker.com autolinking image

 

That should have linked to another page if clicked but it don't work anymore so just delete it from the letter as it's not needed

E-mailed all my catalogues last night explaining pregnancy and offering £10 a month. Had one response from Next which was:

 

Thank you for your email regarding the payment proposals on your Next Directory Account.

 

Unfortunately the proposals of £10.00 per month are not acceptable and the minimum we can accept is £41.00 per month. Should you be able to a commit to this amount then please advise in order to set up the Reduced Payment Arrangement on your account. Please be aware that if we set an arrangement on your account it will be noted on your Credit Reference file ,and no further orders will be allowed during the term of the arrangement.

If that's their attitude and they are going to give you a mark on your credit report for being honest and not just ceasing payments, tell them to stuff it, it's £10 and that's your final offer. Just send them the tenner and keep up payments, you have nothing to lose.

Received a response from Fashion world:

 

We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

 

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £44.00

every 28 days.

 

Your account will be placed on a payment arrangement, as a temporary

measure to help you whilst you are experiencing financial difficulties once

you make your first payment. Payment must be made by credit/debit card on

the telephone number below.

 

and a response from Crazy Clearance:

 

Thank you for your recent email.

 

We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

 

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £19.00

every 28 days.

They must work out the payments based on the outstanding balance. But these amounts aren't much different to my current monthly payments, my current with Fashion World is £46 a month and this month with Crazy Clearance is £19.00 a month

 

Also they don't confirm that they will stop interest being added.

Only The Brilliant Gift Shop have agreed to my letter.

 

Jacamo said: We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £52.00

every 28 days.

 

Viva la Diva have said: We note your comments, however, we cannot accept your offer of £10.00 every

28 days.

 

In light of your circumstances, we will accept reduced payments at £41.00

every 28 days.

 

These payments are ok at the moment, but not when only receiving £125 Stat Maternity Pay.

 

Am wondering if should dispute these payments now, or pay these for next 6 months, then explain that I can literally only afford £10 a month per creditor when receiving £125 a week!

I e-mailed the various catalogues saying that they have only offered me payments that are approx £4 - £7 less than what I am already paying. They came back and said that's the offer that's available at the moment!

 

Should I go along with this until I'm actually on maternity leave or dispute?

Hi

I think that while you can maintain payments, do so. You have forewarned them that your income will drop and if they refuse to help when the time comes, I think you would have good grounds for complaint

Thank you. That's what I was thinking, then write to them again in 5/6 months time explaining my income has dropped and a new agreement needs to be reached.

Have agreed payments with most creditors so far, for six months, that takes me to August, by which point I will be on maternity pay and unable to meet these payments for nine months until I return to work part time, I will write to them again about a month before the six months is up.
