    • The letter states this. Whilst it will be a claim for what my insurers have paid out, legally the claim has to be in my name? as i was the owner of the vehicle. why cant Axa just take the other insurance company/other party to court. A van hit my van on a single track, the other party was going too fast and couldnt stop in time, my insurance company said right away 50/50, lose your NCB and insurance goes up.

    • Hi,   I've been summoned into court next month for getting caught using my younger sisters oyster card. But they also analysed her card and saw that ive used it 149 times other than that. I'm only being chargerd with the one offence and am having to pay fines and i can chose to plead guilty or not guilty.    HOWEVER the letter states "The schedule gives paticulars of 149 offences, which we suspect you of commiting but have not been charged with. If you pead guilty in person an are found guilty of any offences with which you have been charged you can, before any sentence is passed, admit all or any of the matters in the attatched schedule and ask the court to take them into considerations. This in turn will result in not being subsequenly charged with any of these matters"   I have heard that you can write a letter to try to settle out of court but who do i send the letter to as there is no contact on the summons letter?

    • I purchased a Macbook pro from very.co.uk but after 2 weeks is stopped working completely, I talked to very.co.uk electrical support and they agreed it couldn't be fixed and asked me to return the item. I returned the item and very.co.uk refunded my cc.   However I then received a letter stating that I needed to remove the MacBook from my apple account so that the machine could be accessed by very.   I ignored this at first as I thought it was a mistake as they had refunded me. However then I received a bill from them, they had added the cost of the Macbook to my account credit account on very!   I removed the Macbook from my apple account as requested and messaged them via my account to tell them.   They have now asked for a screenshot of me removing the Macbook from my Apple account, how can I provide a screenshot of an action, one that I've already performed too?   I sent a screenshot of my current devices that are registered to my account, however I can see this running as I purchased a replacement Macbook from another store and it has the same name as the returned one, I am concerned as I have an outstanding balance on my account and am being asked for payment.   There appears to be no method of talking to anyone useful at very.co.uk or of getting anything resolved very easily, they do not appear to have a complaints phone number and only provide a couple of options for complaint subjects online 'Warranty complaint', 'PPI complaint', pr Insurance', I would have thought they were obliged to provide better access than that for customers?   Has anyone had experience of dealing with very.co.uk? what's the best way I can get this resolved?    Can they recharge me for a product that I have returned, and that is faulty?   What can I do if they refuse to accept the screenshot I supplied as proof that I have removed the machine from my Apple account?

    • 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

Hi

 

I'm not far into the process either - sending my LBA next week, but I'll help as much as I can. It does seem that Cahoot are really difficult, although maybe this is because people who have success aren't posting? Or maybe it just looks like cahoot aren't getting as much success as the other bigger banks because there are fewer people claiming.

 

Either way good luck - it's a lot of money and the law is on your side!

Your chances are fine. You could send your letters through their website, to speed up the initial letter writing stages of intitial approach for repayment and the letter before action (I asked for a list of charges through the 'contact us' sectin of their website, and any further correspondence through service.relationship.team@cahoot.com).

 

I'm filing a court claim myself next week.

 

Just hang in there...

Ok I have had a list of the charges and it comes to £860 so what now? which letter do I send first? Shall I email it? has anyone had success with the first letter alone?

Hi,

 

I posted mine and got an email back telling me to sod off. I'm posting all of mine as I no longer have an account with them and so view it as being more professsional, although as their responses are via email it really doesn't matter.

 

Read the FAQs before starting - you need to send the prelim letter in the library, but READ THE FAQs and keep us posted.

 

Good luck! Lager Lou

Hi

I have found your messages really helpful- I sent my first letter to them (I closed my two current accounts with Cahoot in March) about 25 days ago and have heard nothing from them not even an acknoledgment to date. Did you guys receive a letter acknowledging your request for statements letter? If you had an email- did they email you at the email address you hold/held and registered as customers- my personal email that they had a record of is also closed down.

 

Very worried about the whole thing and not sure what I do now- do I chase by letter about the statements until the 40 days are up? and then what as I have no idea how much they owe me- just that it's a lot!?

Hello

It's ages since i started my actions against Cahoot. I sent off my lba about a month ago and still have not got my court bundle together. (hectic time with post grad studies).

Now, am filling in N1, printing off copies of print out statement from Cahoot, printing out email correspondence from Cahoot. Has anyone included anything else in the bundle (supporting evidence from reports etc etc)?

Be grateful for any advice

Hi,

 

Am a bit confused about which stage you are at. if you are filing an N1 form then you do not have to (yet) worry about putting together a court bundle. The bundle will be needed if you get a court date - this will not be for a while yet.

 

When submitting your N1 you just need to attach a schedule of charges, which should include your account number, name, dates you were charged, type of charges and the amounts. There is a spreadsheet to help you do this in the library; there is also advice on how to fill in an N1 form in the library.

 

Hope this helps, Lager Lou

Many, many thanks. I was v. confused too! That's really helped.

Am also confused about what interest if any to include on the schedule.

 

Up to this point i have put on the 10.6% charged on the o/d by Cahoot.

:confused: is this right? it seemed only fair to me.

 

i have had no reply whatsoever to my L.B.A. either.

The following link will take you to the spreadsheets in the library. Personally, I've not bothered calculating the overdraft interest as my claim is quite small and i didn't feel it was worth it, so I'm unable to help you calculate the interest accrued on your overdraft - sorry, maybe somebody else can.

 

As per the FAQs in the library, the interest you claim for at the court stage is both the overdraft interest and interest of 8% for each charge, from the date you were first charged. The following link takes you to the spreadsheets in the library. You should not have asked for the 8% interest before starting court action, although I believe (again, check the FAQs or ask somebody else) that you could ask for the overdraft interest in your prelim letter and LBA.

Hope this helps, sorry it's not the complete answer!

Thanks very much. I've already made a spreadsheet to calculate the interest, what I really needed to know is what you've told me: I couldn't make out if the o/d interest was in addition to the 8%.

think it's time for action now!

:D thanks so much!
