    • So I have to ask you once again, has sweatband eventually refused to accept any responsibility for this now that you have been knocked back by the manufacturer? I'd be very grateful if you could address this question which I've already asked twice now.
    • Hi    The first one was purchased in August 2020 and returned in October. This is the link to the page.    https://www.sweatband.com/proform-pro-1500-treadmill.html   We wanted to research our rights so we were clear on them before going back to the manufacturer or sweatband. The last communication was with the manufacturer who sweatband directed us to and the manufacturer told us the location of the treadmill was unsuitable and we had to move it our it would void our warranty.    I wonder if you could be kind enough to let me know if you think the link above affects our protection under the consumer rights act?    Thank you again  EM0149
    • I notice that you haven't addressed my question as to whether sweatband.com have actually refused to take any responsibility for this now.
    • Thanks! I've had several successes in the past 4 years or so which stemmed from a financially difficult part of my life around 2011/13. Basically I was financially trapped with Quick Quid, in a cycle of increased borrowing, during this I'd opened three catalogue accounts: Studio, JD Williams and Simply Be , 2 credit cards (Aqua and Barclays) and was juggling finances. In that time I had got 2 CCJs plus 2 defaults so things were pretty tight. I was using most of my available credit until things eventually became unsustainable. When I moved house I used the deposit to pay off Quick Quid and got into arrangements to repay the catalogues. The credit card limit was still rising until 2017 when I borrowed the balance of nearly £6000 from a family member and cleared the Aqua card. The Barclaycard had already defaulted. In 2017 I began action for irresponsible lending against Quick Quid. Basically they could not show the criteria they used to make lending decisions  and kept lending to me so I won the case. I was refunded all interest and fees  and charges plus 8% pa. When it was upheld it gave me the confidence to challenge JDW and SB. These were also upheld and they had to repay interest, fees and charges plus 8% from the second credit limit increase which amounted to about £1200 each. I challenged Aqua where my redress covering 6 years fees, interest and charges accrued to nearly £9000.  Barclaycard was not upheld but the default was moved back to an earlier date meaning it expires sooner.  All my IRL cases succeeded because none of these companies could prove that they had diligently checked my financial history. My credit report clearly showed that I was using a high or at limit proportion of available credit and that I'd accrued two unconnected CCJ's and 2 defaults throughout the lives of these accounts. Whether they should have given me the accounts in the first place was also brought into question but it was the sustained but gradual increase of CL's time and time again without proper checks. JDW were unable or unwilling to show the ombudsman what criteria they used. It only appeared that because I paid on time they continued to offer increases where in reality I was actually juggling finances like a fine balancing act.  It would appear that the FOS are looking at catalogue debt as I know when my cases against JDW and SB were being investigated they mentioned this.  My case against Studio should conclude soon. I was curious as to why now Cabot are trying to cut their losses by offering such a hefty discount. I can only summise that Studio are trying to buy back the debt for less.  
    • They have made an offer  Remind them in no uncertain terms that under CONC they are responsible for the conduct of their agents , (research and quote this) and negotiate a payment plan of their offer As dx says we really need all the details to understand the full picture

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hey SS thanks for the update, it is a little I agree, I think things are the same 2-3yrs ago with all the claims influx then it is now.

 

I got my court papers today, capital one should be in receipt of their tomorrow and then will see how it goes from there.

 

I am sure they will cough for you before you go to court, they seem to do, from the success stories I have read on here.

Thanks for the update and keep at it. Would be interesting to see what defence they come up with, if any and whether they try and settle at the very last minute. That would make them extremely cynical and totally abusing the system.

Received in the post today a Notice of Allocation to Small Claims Track, and a hearing date of the 13th July. Rather peeved to get something in the post today that was stamped on the 8th June...means we have lost six days out of the fourteen we have to get all documents, and pay the £165 hearing fee :(

 

Have uploaded a copy of the directions issued by the court, which I think are pretty much what we asked for on our Draft Directions. Could someone cast an eye over them and flag up if theres anything unusual hidden away? Would be appreciated.

Hi SS,

 

As the judge has adopted your Draft Directions, you now have to prepare your court bundle ready to File and Serve to the court and to the bank (or their reps) by the time allowed.

 

If the late delivery of the court's letter leaves you short of time, you could ask for an extension of, say, 7 days to get your evidence together as there's a lot to do. If you can manage without an extension, better still.

 

The bundle should include reference to :-

 

1. Limitation Act 1980, s.32(1)c citing Kleinwort Benson -v- Linclon City Council as case law in support of claiming charges older than 6 years (if applicable).

 

2. The case of Sempra Metals -v- Inland Revenue Commissioners in support of your claim for interest in restitution.

 

If you wish, you could also contact the bank or their sol'rs saying a Hearing Date has now been set and, if they wish to avoid the further time and costs associated with the ongoing litigation, they may wish to consider settling now in the sum of £xxx as shown on the enclosed updated SOC which includes court fees paid to date.

 

:-)

Be warned that it's old and relates to bank a/c penalty charges. You can use the examples for ideas on layout and content but you'll have to adapt it to reflect your own credit card charges claim.

LOL I really dont know whether to laugh or cry....(so on balance will laugh)

 

G/F took a call from Crapquest thinking it might be to do with the court case. She passed them over to me once she had done the security nonsense - dialogue went like this:

 

"Its about the oustanding balance of £480 on the account"

"Do you speak to Capital One - we are in the process of sueing them and have a court date"

"I require you to give me some debit card details so I can process a payment"

"Do you not listen?"

"Yes but my screen says you had our final response - so you must pay"

"Oh really - do you think the legal system works like that?"

"Well i must record this as a refusal to pay"

"Do what you like"

"You realise we could issue court proceedings against you?"

"You realise we would immediately counterclaim"

"Im going to recommend further collection action"

"Good luck"

 

Remind me to never ever speak to these donkeys again. Upon reflection should have known they would have nothing to do with our legal action.

 

Unfortunately my TrueCall wasnt connected to the number she rang on :(

Have just received from Cap One a copy of their defence, and a slightly revised offer of £419.76 & £85 court fee. In the interests of keeping CAG users up to speed on Cap One, I am showing below all the docs, minus personal details.

http://i816.photobucket.com/albums/zz90/Still_surviving/Cap%20One/CapOneDefence4.jpg

 

 

Once you cut through all the bumf, it seems their defence boils down to the same usual points weve seen mentioned before:

 

1. The charges are in our terms and conditions so must be legal.

2. They are based on what it costs us (oh really....)

3. Anything over six years old, you can whistle for.

4. We have no comprehension of restitutionary interest, but you can have some purchase interest back.

 

Am going to read and digest this some more over the weekend, but would welcome other opinions etc

 

Hey SS, I got the same exact letter and defense in the post, they claim they have submit it to my local courts, but when I phone th courts up they said they have not defense on file for Capital one. I will keep you posted once I have anymore update.

 

How is your claim going?

They try to limititation of losses if you are not wary, so keep going for the full true amount you have already submitted, they cave in at the last minute following other threads.

Yea, as they claim they are only willing to offer such and such which not even anywhere near what I am claiming for and including charges and interest. But I will keep going and I do hope they cave in soon, for all of us :).

Heard nothing from Cap One so I assume we will be meeting in court soon....

 

Did get a Notice of Assignment from AIC the other day, saying they now own the 'debt' of £400 odd. Somewhat interesting - if they lose the court case, or wish to settle, have Cap One now lost the ability to offset seeing as its not their debt any more, but my court case is against them?

Dont want to be a wet blanket on this, but when an account is assigned is it not, as well as the assets (ie what they claim you owe them) but also the liabilities (what they might owe you). Thus, having sold (or reassigned) to AIC, might CrapONe not have a defence that they no longer own the account and thus have no liability. Therefore you might need to start again? Or, if this is the case - ie AIC bought the liability to recompense you for the unlawful charges - do you have time to have them joined to the action (ie sue them both - you cant get it wrong then :whoo:).

I would be very interested to know, since Crap Quest are being very difficult about a CrapONe account they bought a year or so ago. They have two problems - one that they dont have an enforceable agreement, just an application form with not a presecribed term in sight. The other problem is that, depending on what rate of interest is applied to the unlawful charges they owe ME 150% to 300% of what they could possibly claim I owe them. I have been trying to get them to accept a deal that "you dont sue me and i wont sue you", on the basis that if they came against me I would simply counterclaim for the unlawful charges so the best they could hope for was to lose somewhere between 400 and 1600 pounds (what they owe me less what I owe them, in the unlikely event that the court decided the account could be enforced).

However, if CrapONe remain liable (I had always thought the liability transferred to Crap Quest), then I might sue CrapONe for the charges and just tell Crap Quest to sod off!

Hi SS,

 

You are quite right to be suing Cap1 as it is they who added the default charges to the a/c.

 

If you win your claim, there is no question of them be able to offset any balance owed, either for themselves or for AIC.

 

You either get a CCJ against Cap1 which they have to pay to you direct......

 

......or you can negotiate settlement before court but, again, you should not agree to any offset.

 

Of course, this leaves a debt owing to AIC which I would assume you'll settle from your settlement.

If you take one step back and think about this logically, it would be far too easy for defendants to side-step the court process if they merely assigned their liabilities away. At the very least I would press for it being considered an abuse of court process, seeing as it happened 3 months after my court action was instigated.

 

slick

 

Aye - theres no way I would consent to having to sue anyone else - not after all this time.

 

 

I have to say, it looks as if we will be heading into court, seeing as Cap One have made no contact, and it is seemingly impossible to get email/telephone contact details of their legal department. So be it - but it does state in the judges draft directions, that once our court bundle was submitted they have 14 days to serve a response stating whether they accept the status of penalty charges applied to the account. If not, they are supposed to give a statement of how their fees are calculated.

 

Im not one to hope for them behaving properly after all this time...but the 14 days are up on friday. No doubt they will serve them to court and 'forget' to send me a copy.

A CCJ against a bank? With all those assets? Bring it on!!!
