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,

Rocky

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,

Rocky

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.

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.

cannot find it A to Z

Hi RR

 

I've stuck a link in for the relevant letter as there's no legal requirement for a signature

Thanks everyone,

 

I have sent the no signature required letter back in their prepaid envelope.

Overto you Moorcrap!

 

Cheers everyone,

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.

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,

Rocky

They have not complied so account still in dispute.
