    • SERCO seem to be a default company that Government use to perform contact centre type tasks. So any department faced with a problem, say a sudden increase in incoming phone calls, which they cannot handle, because they are dealing with more immediate issues such as making payments to the public, may in the short term involve SERCO.   SERCO seem to employ a lot of security cleared, DBS checked, financial checked etc employees, so they seem to equipped and ready to manage tasks on behalf of Government departments.   No idea just how much work SERCO does on behalf of Government, but I should imagine it makes up a sizeable chunk of their business.   Public Health departments may want to perform the work themselves, but given the number of employess required, the recruitment process involved, the hours of work 24/7 and just how quick they need to be set up to perform the work, I question whether they are better placed to do so.   I wouid always prefer public sector employees over outsourced contracts, but I can understand why Government uses companies such as SERCO. 
    • Well, we’ve found something we agree on.   you’ve described the unfairness, but haven’t said what (realistically!) you feel your options are.
    • There's a campaign against Serco and in favour of local public health people. Apologies for one bit of language but it's a memorable slogan.   https://twitter.com/i/status/1309910583790252037  
    • Hi.   What type of lease have you had up to now please?   HB
    • my options are if they can be shown they have some responsibility as they did earn commssion and the resturant has its payment. so both parties and paid and i lose out. if we can show they have some moral if not legal obligation then maybe they can give me some refund if not all.   imagine how many others being screwed over too?   beacuse it is online are we to be cheate for now untill goverment decides to govern this area of ecomerese or something?   i dont have a clue.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Really hope someone can advise me on this.

I have received a court summons and I am not sure what to do.

I have checked the default notice, have a copy of the agreement, all look correct.

What I am trying to do is avoid a CCJ.

As most will know Lloyds are one of the worst creditors to deal with, my brief history:

Sent a letter requested interest to be froze and make lower payments. Recieved a letter refusing this as apparatley I could not afford what I offered. This was down to complicated income and expenditure, the system did not have the right boxes! However phoned them and tried to explain, but they could not understand, eventually during the same phone call, agreed a payment £10 higher than the refused offer. This was for 6 months.

After 6 months phoned for the review, told I needed to do I&E again, did this, was then told they would agree to continue the lower payments as long as I guaranteed to pay the full payments at the end of 6 months. I pointed out that I could not possibly agree to this as I had no idea what my financial position would be in 6 months time.

I do want to pay them, but they would not agree. I am not sure if I can defend the court summons on the basis that an offer of payment was made, and is still available. If someone could advise as to weather it is worth trying to defend, that would be great.


Many thanks, please excuse my bad spelling!!

In all honesty Jake, I don't think you can defend it on that basis, i'm really sorry to say. If it was me in your situation, then a CPR31.14 might be a good start (send recorded to the opposing solicitors) it has to be in line with the particulars of the claim. Was there any PPI on the debt at all ? When I mention the CPR31.14 take a look here, and make sure you stick to all the timelines as well - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?159445

PLEASE NOTE - I am not a legal expert, what is stated is my own opinion and from what I have learnt from this forum and my own experiences.

Thank you for such a quick reply. No PPi.

Am I right in thinking the CPR is for copies of the default notice and demand for full payment as listed on the court summons? As I already have the copies sent to me. But to be honest I am not sure I have this right about the CPR.

Many thanks again.

Hi Jake,


As 42man has stated, have you had any penalty charges added to the account, you can claim these back with contractual interest, these could add upto quite a bit. You can claim them back over the last 6 years plus. Also any PPI thats been mis-sold can be claimed back wiith contractual interest. That is the way to go, all templates and spreadsheets can be found in the library on this site. If you haven't got statements send a SAR request with a postal order for £10, they will send all statements for at least the last 6 years. It's your money and you want it back.
