Not seen any reference to these. Equidebt phishing trip passed to them, I suspect it's the next desk along as it's the same envelope & address.

Anyhoo "ignoring them is not an option" as if:lol:

Hi. I am receiving a daily message from Equidebt. There is debt they claim I owe & I maintain I do not. I have had several discussions in the past, although I have always refused to answer their security questions. In the end every time I got a call, I just said everything in writing & put the phone down. Of course nothing ever comes.

For the past 3 weeks I have been receiving the same recorded message daily. It's not particularly upsetting, but is becoming very very annoying.

Do I have grounds for a complaint to the OFT on the grounds of harrassment?

Dear Sir or Madam

 

Harassment by telephone

 

I am writing in relation to the quantity and frequency of telephone calls that I have received from your company, which I deem to be personally harassing.

 

I have verbally requested that these stop, but I am still receiving calls. (Delete if necessary)

I now require all further correspondence from your company to be made in writing only. [if you Want Them to]

I am of the view that your continued harassment of me by telephone puts you in breach of Section 40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970, and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

If you continue to harass me by telephone, you will also be in breach of the Communications Act (2003) s.127 and I will report you to OFCOM, Trading Standards and The Office of Fair Trading, meaning that you will be liable to a substantial fine.

Be advised that any further telephone calls from your company will be recorded. (**Even if you don‘t yet have recording equipment!!**)

 

Yours faithfully, **Print name do not sign**

And make a formal complaint to your local Police station about the criminal offence of harassment.

Hi all. Equidebt have been sending letters & making calls off & on for a debt.

 

Originally it wasn't that specific, so I ignored & answered all calls with "in writing only".

 

They now claim they have made a financial link & have passed it to Weightmans to further harrass me.

 

Weightmans have now sent the letter threatening court action or bankruptcy, along with a financial declaration form (as if! lol),

as I have ignored them, so I suppose it's time to take action.

 

It's a bit of a pain as if it's the debt I'm thinking of, it becomes SB in March next year anyway

- I actually thought for a while that it already was.

 

I've prepared a CCA request & made sure that I have added the "I acknowledge no debt to you..etc" prominently.

 

Are they likely to be able to provide this as it was an RBS credit card originally issud in the late 90s?

 

Anyway does this seem the right thing to do?

 

Any help appreciated.

Dunno dx. TBH I don't trust them & would be wary of any info I might have to give. As I now know it's not SB i would suspect it is. The last payment was made under a CCCA debt management plan in 2006 & Equidebt have been sniffing for about a year.

Any particular reason dx? My credit rating doesn't bother me, as I have gradually paid most of my debts & have no intention of going down that road again. This seems to be a debt that nobody picked up or chased & I thought those dark days were all behind me. If there's a good reason to sign up, I'll do it.

Send the CCA request by rec. delivery to Weightmans immediately, incl. the wording you mentioned "I do not acknowledge.... blah, blah. If not, Weightmans will probably issue court papers to secure a CCJ. In theory, they might do this anyway but if you are seen to know your onions (so to speak), they're unlikely to waste their time.

Thanks for the replies. Would they still be able to go do a CCJ even with a CCA request outstanding?

Yes.... but receiving one by rec. delivery will/should halt proceedings because it's a legal request for info. and you will have proof it was sent/received.

I'd be inclined to send it to Weightmans, with a copy of the same request (no payment encl.) to Equidebt..... both by rec. delivery. Just put on the top FAO Equidebt. That way, Weightmans will have received a direct legal request and will be acting in complete defiance if they go ahead and issue court papers in the face of it.

Thanks, will do

And just a final one, I will definitely NOT be restarting the clock on this becoming statute barred?

Just make sure you include "I do not acknowledge any debt to your company" on everything sent anywhere in connection with this.

Hi again. Time is nearly up for the CCA request now & no letter, but I had an answerphone message from Weightmans today asking me to call. I'm minded to ignore them as I fire off the dispute letter next week anyway. Sound right?

Yes DX, confirms SB in March. What could they want though? I sent the CCA request, they haven't replied. They could reply by letter & I'm not getting involved in calls with them.

    • sadly no they can just take. and it wasn't a private company no.    
    • Happy Easter.   Does anyone know it the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 applies to a Commercial Mortgage Offer?   Thank you  
    • Still no correspondence. I have spoken to the court, who, as it stands have nothing from Southern Water, but have a back log, and technically it could be in the system waiting to be processed. The direction either way, is to send it to the judge for further review and decision.  MCOL is showing no further updates. Am I right in thinking that I would have heard from Southern Water independently from the court process.  The last correspondence stated the claimant was to reply to the court and defendant. So I’m taking it as I haven’t heard, nor would the court. Anyone know what the next step would be, if Southern Water haven’t replied in time?
    • How long have they given you to send the form back? The statutory period is seven days but many EA's give you more.   Just some basic things about CTax bailiffs you probably already know.   They have no powers to force entry, however, they can gain access through an unlocked door or take goods from the garden. They can call on any day of the year between 6 am and 9 pm.   If the Bailiff does not collect,  and the warrant is returned to the council all fees will disappear and you will be left with just the original debt.   So if you did nothing and you are happy for the threat of the Bailiff calling for up to twelve months you could just "sit it out" and eventually you may get away with just paying the council the original debt without fees. Many subscribe to this course of action.   The downside is,  for the period mentioned there is the continual threat of the bailiff calling and all the stress that goes with it. in addition most importantly, the authority, on the return of the warrant may just pass it to another bailiff.   So perhaps over the weekend, you could decide which path you want to pursue.    I don't want to persuade you either way but personally, I would rather just get it sorted, (With the authority if possible) and get on with the important stuff in my life :).
    • Bought a car for £350, drove it home with insurance and MOT, but no tax. Parked it outside the house while someone else was taxing it, however the other person (who was to borrow the car for a few weeks) mixed up some log books and taxed the wrong car.    5 hours later, private company came around, picked up the car and took it 20 miles away into London (as opposed to the local inpound 2 or 3 miles away).     Didn't realise it was gone until the morning, called 101 and confirmed it was taken for no tax. Called impound, they want £260 to release it, said I had half hour to pick it up or it goes up another £100.    My fault 100%, shouldn't have parked it without tax on the road.    Now, it wasn't parked dangerously, it wasn't abandoned. Should it have only been clamped first? I'd pay the £100 DVLA fee but the car isn't worth getting back for £360. Just seems sneaky that a private company took it, and transported it 20 miles away into London (it would take an hour and a half each way at least). 
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
