Hi im hoping that someone can steer me in the right direction .

i had a lloyds tsb credit card for the past few years ,due to going self employed and having personal problems i now find my self in debt on a credit card 8000 worth ..

ive had number fo phone calls off lloyds tsb and a few letters ,

now i have got this letter which is a claim form which also has a admission form ,defence and counterclaim form along with a response pack.

it also mentions the county court in northhampton whcih is really worrying me.

 

i own my own house ,i currently have other debts and i am earning a wage although im still going into my overdraft everysingle month im just about managing to keep food on the table pay the morgage and make sure my son has all he needs to get by day to day .

 

i have buried my head long enough and i need to deal with the issues ,

now i was paying this debt back upuntil about 6-7 months ago but the rate was silly and i just could not sustain it ,so i have defaulted and have not paid a penny since or responded to any of there letters or phone calls .

im really worried about ballifs loosing my home my possesions etc

can some one kindly give me some advise as to what route i need to go down.

id like to step up to the debt and paid it but at this moment in time i just dont have the money at all,

Hi marty

 

Thanks for that....it gives the guys a better picture.

 

Just to let you know, you would find the overlimit/late payments fees on the credit card statements...they will be clearly shown.

 

As I said, people more knowledgable then me on defending the claim will be along as soon as they pick up this thread.

Ok.

So now have 14 days to acknowledge service and unless requesting further time-another 14 for defence.

Are you able to say roughly how much they have added in charges -not just recently-over the last years.

I would not mind betting that it is quite a lot.

Do you have any statements at all for this account-how long are you going back from when the card was taken out ?

Is the whole amount due to the card ?

Ie-they have not added other amounts from other accounts.

Have they issued a default notice for the account ?

If so when ?

I am going to move this to legal forums.

We really need to be getting transaction info.

If this account goes back a few years,then with compound interest reclaim could be worth a lot.

In such a scenario it could give cause to counterclaim.

Hi martin thanks for taking the time to answer

 

the charges i have no idea ,i have not recieved a statement off them for months ,i will have a good look tommorrow to see if i can dig some out im sure ill have some ,but to be honest with you i have just kinda buried my head in the sand and anything that i have recieved has been ripped up and binned (silly i know).

the whole amount is due on the one account its not linked to anything else .(from what im aware)

default notice yes i do belive so and in reading this latest letter they sent in the particulars of the claim it says "in breaching the agreement the defendant failed to make payment and on the 29/10.10 the claiments issused a default notice pusuant to section 87(i) of the consumer credit act 1974

on the 30/11/10 the claiments did issue a formal demand to the defedant

the claiment therefor claim the balance due under the agrement **8002.13

Ok thanks Marty.

Its quite easy to bury your head so dont feel bad about that.

Did you make it known to them that there were financial difficulties ?

What communications were there in writing ?

Do you feel they did not take any notice of your circumstances ?

The immediate thing is to deal with the response of the claim form.

I am going to flag this up to the site team.

i tried to explain to them i was in difficulty ,they did send me a form to fill in to try and get the payments down but by then it was too late my finiances were dire i had nothing in the bank to give them at all.

i was at a low point at that time i was struggling money wise my partner had left me my head was not quite in the game .thus everything just got left and binned and forgotten about

the only thing ive had in writing is demand letters and then collection letters then the default notice and now this claim form .

i think a good bit of advice here is to open a bank a/c with someone that s not linked to any of your creditors

and get any money you have/earn paid here, that will stop what i am surprised they have not done already which is off setting.

 

you 'should' be able to access some statements via their internet banking site.

 

if not, you need to sar them now to get them all and get a counter claim for unlawful fees in motion.

the credit card seems to have been removed from my internet banking so im unable to access any online statements

although i have been right through my paper work and managed to find 4-5 months worth of statements ,the last one is the very last time i made a payment please see attached.

i did manage to get the debt down to just below 7k but with me missing many months of statements it seems its all been totted back up to 8k mark

I can just vaguely see a mention of Payment protection insurance on that DN.. are you sure you didnt have it on the account ? Check a statement if you can, it will show an amount being taken for an insurance under many disguises..
