    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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

Hey all,

 

I'd imagine I'm not the first to ask about these guys so hopefully someone can help put my mind at ease.

 

Starting with the basics.

 

 

Took out a car finance agreement back in 2003.

Was told I could cancel after 2 years and hand back.

Did that and got hit with bill for remaining 2 years of around £4500 back in April 2005.

 

 

At the time and for the next couple of years I got letters and read on sites like this one that they are really troublesome.

Refused to pay anything as I was told I could hand it back and I was sticking to my guns.

 

Eventually letters stopped but

now I have got a new one RE: BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS.

I am sure you have seen them before from Go Debt but I am bemused with the first line of the letter:

 

We are considering making an appointment with you to arrange service of a statutory demand etc etc.

they are thinking of coming to see me to serve me with a bankruptcy demand

and they want me to agree to an appointment? Yeah sure, I'll defo be in.

 

I have read in other forums that if the credit agreement was before April 2007

and doesnt have certain data named prescribed terms then the debt is unenforceable,

as it is as well if they cant find the original agreement.

Is this correct?

 

Also, should I open communication with them and ask for a copy of my original agreement to see if they have it?

 

Any help greatly appreciated as we are coming up to mortgage renewal time in a few months and dont want this to scupper anything.

send them a cca request for the agreement, and if they want to server a stat demand then let them "arrange" a time by themselves

just read the dates, they are getting close to being stat barred in apr next year so this maybe why they are trying to get in touch, just ignore for now and let the clock tick, if they persist then send a cca

Just for your info a Statutory Demand is not a Court Document. It is usually used as a 'frightener' to those who have not found CAG!!

 

If you follow the above advice and apply for your CCA then assuming they send you a load of rubbish, that will be a complete reason for a set aside for a Statutory Demand.

 

An SD is a 'warning' that they could take you forwards to Bankruptcy, and although not issued through a Court, can where possible, be set aside so long as this happens within 18 days of Service.

 

If this happens let us know, and you will received loads of help and advice.


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

Anyways, I have read in other forums that if the credit agreement was before April 2007 and doesnt have certain data named prescribed terms then the debt is unenforceable, as it is as well if they cant find the original agreement. Is this correct?

 

 

If they don't have a signed copy of the agreement they can not take you to court.

 

Being before 2007 does not mean it is automatically unenforceable.

 

Who was the finance with - it wasn't yes car credit by any chance was it?

Cheers for the reply folks.

 

Original agreement was with Direct Car Financial or Direct Auto Financial.

 

Something that has always stuck with me, and has resurfaced due to all these ads for missold PPI etc, was the fact that when I went in for the car (and I know I was stupid not to say something at the time, I was young and just wanting a car) but they told me the monthly payments were higher without the PPI. I found this weird but just accepted it.

 

Is this likely to be true or is it likely this is one of those missold PPI examples. Even if it is there is unlikely to be a way I can prove it.

You are correct Viper, it would seem that the PPI was missold !!

Would I also be correct in thinking theres nothing I can do about it?

 

I wouldnt want to use any of these people putting ads out on the TV etc as I reckon they are probably just as bad as the loan companys lol

You are right about the claims companies being as bad as the loan companies, they often use the same staff (I do have proof of this btw)...

 

What you need to do is ignore the letters from GoDebt and see if they are stupid enough to actually go for a bankruptcy based on the fact that they have posted a letter to you - they probably have very limited grounds for doing so, especially in view of the near statute barred status - this in itself would form a very good defence.

 

Do you have other creditors, because if you do this too can be used as part of the defence, that other creditors would be greatly prejudiced by GoDebt's vexatious and litigatious actions.

SAR the OC that'll take some time. CCA the DCA which will hold them off for a while. Hopefully the CCA will be unenforceable, if so - game over. Not long to April to be honest and if they're brave enough to issue an SD there are many here who can help you get it set aside. They may however, go for a CCJ instead or even after attempting an SD. Better to get all the info. now as you'll be in a much stronger position if the worst scenario plays out :)

 

PS: As they've threatened legal action but not yet served an SD you are quite entitled to use CPR ;)

Thanks a lot for all your advice people. Its set my mind at ease that I wont have to pay them a penny. At least now we can look at getting a mortgage without the fear of bankruptcy hanging over me.

 

Me personally, debt wise I only have a couple of credit cards that I pay off monthly or as near to monthly as I can. I heard back in the day that it was good to have and pay off a credit card with regard to building my credit back up as when I was younger I was a bit naive to say the least, but all sorted now thank god.

There is, to quite a few companies, a downside to doing that. Basically, if you don't use the credit you have some companies would consider that you don't actually need it but hopefully that won't affect re mortgaging. You should check all three of your credit reports to make sure there are no entries for this account :)

Basically long story short I got a car through Yes Car Credit years ago and subsequently handed the car back after 2 years per the agreement. They disagreed and chased me for the balance. The debt is now statute barred (however not officially designated as so yet).

 

However I do remember at the time them saying the repayments would be dearer, only by a few pounds, if I didnt take the PPI. In my youthful exuberance I thought, ok, I will save a few pounds, instead of the way I am now, excuse me, how can the value of a car go up if I dont take PPI?

 

Now, the way I am looking at it, probably wrongly but you can advise, as the debt has elapsed can I claim the full amount of any PPI? Or can I claim the amount of PPI relative to the payments I actually made? Or should I just not bother reopening a can or worms?

 

Thanks in advance for advise.

 

P.S I really hope you dont advise option 3 :madgrin::madgrin::madgrin:

PPI is completely separate to the actual loan, or at least it should be!

 

How close to SB are we talking? What is the total balance outstanding? And would this cover the outstanding balance and give you some money back in your pocket?

 

If it won't then let sleeping debts lie. IMO...

Hey all back again,

 

Just got my Annual Statement in from Go Debt and just wondering if I should do anything about this or just leave it alone.

 

Long story short, handed car to Direct Auto back in early 2005, they said I am due money, I wasnt, it was agreed that if I handed back after 2 years then it was done and dusted.

 

since then nothing but letters every few months or so (even less frequent now thank god).

Its been over the 6 year period so assuming statute barred now.

They havent done anything barr send letters and annoying phone calls.

It doesnt appear on my credit files either.

 

Is there anything I can do to get rid of them or should I just leave it?

 

Thanks in advance

You can either ignore them or send them the SB letter.

 

Personally I would be inclined to ignore them, there is nothing they can do, you have a complete defence in that it is SB, so if any subsequent fool should chance their arm in taking legal action against you, then you have a solid defence.

 

Even if you do send them the SB letter, it will simply mean that they will stop begging off you, and then they will flog it on to another fool who may begin begging off you in a few years or months time. Just ignore them, let them waste their time.

Hey all,

 

Think I made a bit of a boo boo though wonder if I will be ok. I was on the PC and the person on the phone caught me off guard.

 

Got a call on my mobile and it went like this. Person said they had a call for me, before I could respond hold music played and some guy came on the phone saying "blah blah blah" how can I help you.

 

I said some one phoned me and said they had a call for me. They said something about outstanding car finance, I said its over 6 years old and its statute barred (again was kinda panicking coz they caught me off guard). They then said when was the last time you acknowledged the debt, I said I have never acknowledged the debt. They said I was under the impression you had acknowledged the debt and I was calling to get settlement. I said no the debt has never been acknowledged. They said ok then I will check the records and if its statute barred I will get something out to you in writing.

 

The more I think about it the more I think it was a ploy to get me to acknowledge the debt. The deceiving part was the call to me that said someone has a call for me and then transferring me through to someone who plainly didnt know about the call. Would this be construed as me contacting them?

 

Anyway, does it matter if I acknowledge the debt if it is statute barred? I dont think it does given what I have read on here.

 

Cheers

Does not matter acknowledgement of the debt is by payment or in writing not from a phone call they are as usual spouting rubbish to try to get you to start payments (statute barred is 6 years and 5 in Scotland).
