Hi all,

Best wishes to all caggers,

 

I have a loan with Tesco that we have been paying by arrangement. I suddenly received several nasty-o-grams from Moorcrap, so I wrote and asked for my CCA. They have replied with an aknowledgement and saying they have passed my request to the client. They go on to say:

 

"We believe that it may be of assistance to all parties if we also take this opportunity to ensure that potential areas of dispute are addressed prior to court action or further investigation.

 

To this end can you provide an indication of the information will be relying on, when you will be giving evidence to the court or information to the relevant statutory authorities in relation to the alleged subject matter of this account.

 

Please could you provide this information by return as this will ensure that all possible areas of dispute are identified as quickly as possible thereby minimizing potential costs and delays."

 

Are they serious? or are they rubbing home the fact that "you will be giving evidence in court" as a frightener?

Do they want a checklist i.e prescribed terms, interest rates, right to cancel, etc., so that they can get it right?

 

I am thinking of replying and quoting a few random legal case studies to give them something to think about.

 

If they start harassing me with no good reason and threatening court/home visits, when we haven't got any money, I might as well fight them.

 

Should I reply or ignore?

 

Cheers,

LOL this is their latest ploy, as you say to put the idea of court in your head.

It's nonsensical, the information you would be relying on should you go to court is dependant on their response to the CCA request.

 

Ignore:lol:

It is your legal right to request a CCA at any time. They are trying to intimidate you so a complaint to TS, OFT & the FSA wouldn't be amiss.

Hi all,

Moorcroft wrote again saying that they are unhappy that MIDS contacted us whilst we are waiting for our CCA request to be fulfilled. No apology though.

 

I have now sent the official dispute letter to Moorcroft as no CCA has appeared after 14+2 working days.

 

Will let you know what happens if I get the CCA.

 

Cheers,

This is not new - Moorcroft have been using it for years. There's no need to reply; it's a template letter designed to make people think that making a perfectly legal and reasonable request will trigger some sort of court action. Like everything else DCAs push out, it's all pish and wind.

 

If 'MIDS' referred to above is Midas Legal Services, they are just a trading name of Moorcroft.

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.

Hi Caggers, onward and upward!

 

No response to my CCA request, so I wrote to Moorcrap in March putting the account in dispute as I have not had a CCA in the 14+2 days.

 

I have had a letter from Moorcrap in April saying that their client's procedures won't let them provide a CCA without a signed request, and as my letter was unsigned, they are unable to complete my request at this time, providing me with a stamped addressed envelope for my reply, and suspending the account for 28 days.

 

I would be grateful for answers to the following:

 

1) Is my dispute still valid?

 

2) Should I send a signature or leave my initial request as it is?

 

3) Should I wait for the 28 days, or reply now?

 

4) Does this now mean that they have another 28 days to "find" a CCA and try and wriggle out of the 14+2 requirement?

 

Words can't express my thanks to you guys on this site! Well done!

Hi say to them no requirement for a signature on CCA request and if they are not sure that you are the person they are pursuing for this debt then they can take a hike.

 

No requirement for you to wait further than the 12+2 working days that is the requirement for a CCA request they have defaulted and can go forth etc.

Hi PGH,

 

I used their already stamped envelope (bright yellow) addressed by them to their Compliance Dept (work experience kids?).

I think that the no signature letter is a good one and will give them something to think about.

They are definitely floundering.

 

They started the fight!

Hi Rocky,

 

Have you heard any further from Moorcrap?

 

I'm in the same position, received one of those letters following my CCA request, asking for me to tell them what I need to rely on in court. It's exactly the same letter, word for word, so obviously just some standard drivle they produce.

 

I'm not sure if it's crossed your mind Rocky but the bit that got me thinking is "we duly confirm we have requested the relevant documentation from our client"....hold on, I thought if Moorcrap now own the debt, that Moorcrap would be in possession of all the documents themselves and so wouldn't need to contact the original creditor???? After all, that's why I sent Moorcrap the CCA request, otherwise I would have sent it to the OC. Can anyone advise on this please?

Hi Big Shoooz,

Sorry for the late reply.

I haven't heard any more from Moorcrap since I sent my last letter.

I think that they are agents for the OC. Others have said that they don't buy debts, so I might hear from them with a CCA eventually.

 

Of course things change and I am sure that they will be out to make money however they can.

Will keep you posted.

Wonder why the bright yellow envelope?

Hi all,

 

Just received a letter from Tesco with an illegible copy of a faxed agreement. I mean illegible, most words are blurred and some are just missing. Not worth posting it.

It is a two page agreement with a two page schedule of arrears (which are freshly typed and legible).

 

Moorcrap wrote at the same time asking me to confirm receipt of the client's correspondence and asking me to contact them and agree payment.

 

Would it be reasonable to write to Moorcrap and continue the dispute until I get a legible copy?

 

Cheers,

Ok folks, here it is! I have blanked the sensitive bits (which I could make out) in case any clever body can manipulate them digitally so that they are legible.

 

It seems to be a copy of a fax of a fax.

    • 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.
