    • So here's a thought:   The average age of someone dying of Covid-19 is 82.4.   The average life expectancy is less, at 81.4.   The rest of the population is making huge sacrifices to save people who, on average, would have been dead anyway.   I wonder what the total of life-years saved by all the restrictions we've had on us since the pandemic started is? Probably not many.
    • Hi Thankyou for your response    yes it is ! I sent of a SAR and within the comms Log Lloyds advised PRA  no CCA or paperwork available  .  hence account unenforceable.   The default is listed as PRA so does that mean it’s active ?  I can’t see a default for LLoyds on there.  I will follow your advice Thankyou 
    • i will guess this is:   a debt buyer dca cannot register a default notice    if the original creditor registered a default notice then get a copy of that  staple it to a letter to PRA and demand the account is removed from your credit file forthwith or a serious complaint will be registered with the ICO and financial compensation will be sought.   give them 14 days

    • Good Evening,    Please may I ask for some information re default markers on Credit Report ?    I had a CC with a Bank default around Jan 2014. Nothing was registered on my Credit Report The debt was later sold on a few times. Eventually to PRA in 2017 where it is unenforceable.   On my Clearscore report that I have recently downloaded it says “ In default PRA GRoup 5th April 2017”. when I click onto this it shows no markings on any month from 2014. so my question is can PRA register the default from 2017. I’m unsure if it drops off from The bank in 2014 or after PRA registered in 2017.    thanks for any advice you can give

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi Everyone,

As this is such a complicated case I was wondering if we should continue trying to get information from London Scottish. They claim in their last letter, that they have all payments details etc. on computer, but that I have to provide proof in the form of a payment book before they'll tell me anymore.

As I had sent a SAR request, which i believe has nothing debt etc, but it's just a straight forward request for information. So how can they refuse to give me the information that they claim they have?

Can we approach the information commission or someone to help with this? Or do we have enough information at the moment to proceed as we are?

 

bob

 

can you sanitise the letter and post it up?

 

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets

as a picture[jpg] file

remove all pers info inc barcodes etc using paint program

but leave all figures and dates.

 

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf

than many single ones

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

Hi Dx,

 

Sorry about keeping you up so late last night.

 

I just wondered if you think it's worth making a complaint to the FOS about the missing information in the the SAR.

(London Scottish did include a FOS booklet with their final reply).

 

Or, as it's a data protection act thing, I should complain to the data commissioner?

 

Thanks again , bob

Hi Dx,

 

If I intend complaining to FOS it needs to be posted in within the next two weeks!!!

 

As thats six months after i've received the Final Reply from Scottish London.

 

So, I was was wondering if there's any point in complaining to the FOS about an incomplete SAR, or just write to the Data protection folk instead ?

i would think that you are quite within you right to

;link' the sar problem IN with your current PPI claim

 

as if the claim needs to go to the FOS, the ;lack' of data will obv be the reason

So basically, once I've got their reply for the PPI claim, I can add on their failure to provide a complete SAR and send both to the FOS.

 

Therefore, the six months i have to send a complaint, can be from the time I receive their reply for the PPI claim, correct?

 

I really didn't think of that. doh!

 

thanks again , bob

 

 

p.s. I just thought, the original reason for sending the SAR was to obtain info to help with the DCA, and not as attempt to reclaim the PPI.

 

Should i make a complaint about the lack of info in the SAR, if only so that the DCA can't claim that i had the opportunity to make a complaint but did not?

 

(this thread is really about stopping the DCA , it's just been side tracked recently by the PPI claim)

UPDATE: Just like any good horror story this one has just come back from the dead.

 

To summarize what has gone before (the story really gets started back in post 73).

 

Back in Feb 2011, I found out that my mother was being chased by DLC for an old loan from London Scottish. She'd paid a HUGE amount off, and still owned more than the original amount borrowed. And taking advice from members of CAG, I sent off a CCA request.

It turned out that she had in fact taken out over 14 loans from London Scottish (one following on from another) and a lot of these had a balance which was 'rolled over' onto the following loan. Some also had mis-sold PPI (my mother was a pensioner at the time) and with an interest rate on the PPI as high as 235%. Postggj pointed out (post 112) how can more than 50% of a loan be made up of PPI?

 

With a lot of help from CAG members, P1 and Dx100, citizenB, and many others, I sent a SAR to London Scottish

 

(ALL AGREEMENTS AND PPI INFO IN POST 105)

 

I received only a part of the information requested, so I asked for the rest. In response I got (post 114) - what P1 called a 'stupid letter' (post 115) or to quote P1 more fully...:-D

 

that has got to be one of the biggest heaps of tosh I've read on here for a long time....

 

They're trying to say that they have no statements.... so no records then? No history of any payments received on these accounts from doorstep collections? Then how the heck did they work out the amount to flog out to DLC? They've more or less admitted that they can't.

 

It's very tempting to say that it was paid up a long time ago..... No records; no proof. You could have a field day with this one.... and they'd be very, very stupid to go anywhere near a court with it!

 

Idiots!..”

 

Anyway to cut to the chase, P1 wrote a magnificent letter back in post 127, asking for the SAR information for a third time, and their response this time was.....(post 141)

 

...(more or less saying) LS has a record of the payments but they weren't going to give them to us, if we disputed the balance they asked us to provide proof in the form of the payment card issued and then they'll check their records for us :???:. (This was a doorstop collection).

 

After this the thread went off on in a new direction, on how to reclaim PPI.......

 

Soooooo the good news ( hopefully :-)) the FSCS is now looking into the PPI stuff, and hopefully we'll get a fair hearing..

 

The BAD news is we recently received this letter from DLC, the first one for 18 months! Saying that they believe our complaint with LS has been resolved, (I of course dis-agree) and that if DLC don't hear from us by next Wednesday they'll pass the matter back to their collection boys and girls.

 

http://s1354.photobucket.com/albums/q685/bob_CAG/?action=view&current=26sept2012-retracted_zpsf961a0bf.jpg

 

So my question is, does anyone have any advice on how best to reply to the above letter?

 

I'm thinking of summarizing all three requests for SAR information, and the inconsistent replies from LS.

Plus mentioning that because the agreements are interlinked, and have 'charges with interests already levied rolled over, with more interests, and added mis-sold PPI' etc ...And well, as P1 said, the figure upon assignment is an amalgamation of incorrect balances, etc...

 

Then asking DLC to contact LS directly, and obtain the information requested so that we can all be clear on what the balance should be. I mean, DLC do have to prove that the balance when the loan was sold on was correct, correct? And it appears with this mess that's going to be an impossible task.

 

Anyway, any and all advice, or suggestions, observations, comments, etc, would be most appreciated,

 

Thanks in advance, Bob

 

 

p.s. Some of the highlights of the story so far:

 

post 84, post 85, post 87, post 88

 

post 94 P1 unlawful charges added?

post 96 Dx100 thinks agreement maybe lawful

post 97 P1 disagrees

post 99 P1 believes the balance upon assignment is incorrect

post 107 Dx100 believes if this went to court the Judge would JAIL them!!!

post 112 postggj more than 50% of loan made up of PPI

post 115 P1 no statements/ no records?

Post 122 P1 PPI should invalidate the assignment to DLC

Post 124 P1 “Stupid letter don't lose it”

 

 

p.p.s sorry about the length but hopefully it'll help you all to understand what a mess this is

The reply to their letter should be quite short and simple:

 

Dear Sirs

 

Thank you for your letter dated xxxx in which you erroneously suggest that the dispute has been resolved. Regrettably, London Scottish Finance appear to be unable or unwilling to act properly in the matter.

 

For the avoidance of any doubt, the dispute is ongoing.

 

I appreciate that purchasing debts from failed companies may be fraught with difficulty, but any problems you have with your purchases are for you to take up with the seller. In the meantime, your mandatory obligations as the holder of a consumer credit licence stand, and any contact from your collections department will be reported as a breach of the Office of Fair Trading's Guidance on Debt Collection.

 

I trust my position is clear; if you do not understand this letter you should seek professional advice.

 

Yours etc.

 

Getting into detail just invites them to get more involved, which will almost certainly be unhelpful.

A cracking letter SP and worthy of the best of the wordsmiths at DLC. (I suspect you have read even more DLC letters than I have...)

 

Nice... :-)

nice letter scarlet pimpernel! I have been getting DLC and Apex letters for around 4 years now and I just do not respond to them.

I've had them all - solicitor threats, doorstep collection threats - several times over. I have another 2 years before I statue bar them but in the meanwhile, I'm getting a good collection of fire fodder, should there ever be a 'big freeze'...

Quick question:

 

London Scottish has passed on the PPI claim onto Deloitte's to resolve.

 

Deloitte's form states that:

 

By signing section H if we pay compensation we will 'step into your shoes' and take over the rights to sue LS.

 

So the question is, should we trust Deloitte's to try and get the refund or take a different course?

 

thanks, bobby

would that include the threat of taking court action? 'cus it's for my elderly mother, and I'm really looking for the least stressful way to proceed.

 

oh, and it's against London Scottish and they've gone into 'Administartion' - so I'm not sure if there is another way. Be interested to find out though !!!

 

p.s. do I need to send this recorded? rather not spend the money unless I have to

Thanks Brig, I'll send recorded then :-D

 

The letter from London Scottish seemed to imply that as they're in 'Administration' the FSCS via Deloitte's was the only way to go.

 

I'm now wondering if there's an alterative.

 

If so, can anyone say what they are ? I've read a lot about reclaiming PPI on here, but as London Scottish has gone belly-up none of that seem to apply to this case.

Sorry dx, a CMC is a claims managment company correct?

 

I thought the route I was taking it, the FSCS via Deloitte's was something very different.

 

Maybe the only option I have because Scottish London are in 'Administration'.

 

LS said they had to pass the case on to them because of the 'Admin' thing

- LS are no longer responsible for PPI refunds.

 

Are you sugggesting otherwise?

 

SP, no reply from DLC since the letter was sent :-)

i thought Deloitte wa acting as a CMC here...

 

ithink we've had this before

 

there is nothing to stop you doing it your self.

 

have a look in the PPI successes

 

i'm sure the administrators of LS have coughed at least once on PPI.

 

go thru them first

 

not the FSCS.
