    • I'm assuming that the supermarket receive their goods back undamaged. Probably a mistake to shred the letter because you should keep a paper trail of everything – but yes you should ignore it but if anything else arrives then let us know and don't destroy it. Particularly because the police have already been involved, I don't think you have anything else to fear. Presumably they got you to sign something? Obviously you have made a bad judgement call by shoplifting from this supermarket or anywhere else. I don't know if it was a one-off but hopefully you have now had a bit of a shock and maybe it will make you think more carefully about this kind of thing. I think that you want to share this information with somebody – and maybe you should go and see your GP and tell them about it. Also, if you have any trustworthy members of your family then maybe you should let them know what you have done and unburdening yourself is going to be therapeutic – and also may be they will be able to talk to you in a way which will be helpful. Please keep us informed if you hear anything more from DWF
    • so... I am back again     quick recap: I rented a van using Hertz; the clutch burned out after only 6 miles; Hertz tried to get £850 from my c/c (thankfully I used a virtual one); a debt agency sent me a letter asking to pay £1000+ that ignored.   30 days ago I requested an SAR to Hertz and, so far, I have not received anything (no via post nor via email). As far as I know they are obliged to fulfill my request and I don't want to send them a reminder. Can i open a complaint to the ICO? do you advice me to to that or should I wait more time?   Thanks,   L.
    • Here is the list of letters with dates & amounts. Hope it all makes sense;   1) Email Invoice 26/03/2019 - $14,725.00   2) Pre Protocol Letter 19/06/20 - £9426.41. the GBP rate in the letter is £1 = $1.667AUD so this amount is $15,713.83   3) Deed of Assignment 21/07/20 - $14,725.00   4) Claim Form 11/09/20 - Particulars Claim £8,046.45 <--- this says by deed of assignment. If I use the rate stated in the letter pre protocol £1= £1.667AUD this = $13,413.43 This bit states daily Interest rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment at a daily rate of £1.76.   At the bottom of the page there is a box with the following: Amount Claimed - £8988.21(if I change that to the AUS Dollar using the rate stated £1 = $1.667AUD the amount would be $14,983.34).   Court Fee - £410 Total Amount - £9398.21   Hope 
    • I'm well impressed with NZ Got a real person in charge, who deals with real world issues in a real world way. Even better than Sturgeon.   Way past time we threw the political elite like Johnson, Farage, Corbyn, Rees-Mogg and Gove out into the street and had them supervised while they swept it and did an actual service to the country.
    • Hello, thank you, I had it marked as due this Friday on the calendar.  My only defence is that I have a really acute kidney infection and infected cellulitis in my leg, last week has just been about survival although I doubt it will matter.  Can I file something late do you know?  Crikey life’s a bit of a bucket of muck at the minute

    • 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, hope someone can help me with this !

 

I have just received a claim form from Northampton CC which I believe is statute barred.

 

I intend to respond via moneyclaim.gov disputing the full amount however the POC has something in it that I'm not sure about and wondered if anyone could shed any light on it :

 

The claimant claims for sums due under a/various Mail Order Agreement(s) entered into between Shop Direct Limited and the Defendant.

The rights of Shop Direct Limited passed to the Claimant pursuant to an assignment dated 21/11/06 between Shop Direct Limited and the Claimant.

The agreement(s) was/were terminated upon the Defendant failure to comply with the terms of the agreement(s) and or the statutory Notice of Default served by Shop Direct Limited.

The claimant complied with Section III and IV and annex B of the PD Pre-Action Conduct.

And the Claimant claims:

Mail Order Account number xxxxxxxx balance of xxx.xx as 2/11/06.

Interest under s69 of the County Court Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year from the assignment Date(s) to 9/8/11 of xxx.xx and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment at a daily rate of 0.21 AND costs.

 

What is this bit about ? The claimant complied with Section III and IV and annex B of the PD Pre-Action Conduct. I haven't to my knowledge complied with anything ?

 

Should I SAR/CCA Wescot first or just go ahead on the grounds that the debt is statute barred ?

 

Any advice would be gladly received !

 

Thanks

I know it's statute barred as I've been in my current property for over 6 years and this is an account from probably 2 or more years before that.

 

I went through lots of problems around 10 years ago which resulted in a lot of accounts just being 'forgotten' ! Head in the sand basically.

 

I've had a few SDs over the last few years from Capquest for similar accounts but successfully had them set aside due to the statute barred rule, it was just the wording in the POC of this one that I wasn't familiar with as I know I haven't acknowledged the debt.

 

Do you think this is just them making things up to try and get further perhaps ?

Hi Howard,

 

The section in the POCs about compliance refer to the Claimant (Wescot) in that they state that they have complied with pre action protocols. Standard wording - but did they. I've attached a guide for your info.

 

Yes you need to SAR (Shop Direct, not Westcot) straight away to establish the precise SB date.

If you intend to dispute all the claim you need to acknowledge online and state this, then send a CPR 31.14 request to the solicitors, requesting copies of everything mentioned in the particulars of claim.

 

I've also attached a compendium I put together of the advice on the legal sticky threads, with template CPR letters and advice how to proceed.

 

 

kind regards,

Thanks Elsa thats great.

 

You wouldn't happen to have SAR & CPR 31.14 templates that I could use that relates to the POC would you ?

 

Sorry for being cheeky !

Hi Howard,

No probs..just something to get you started till those who know more than I do come along :wink:

 

From your POC's, what you need to request is highlighted:

 

 

The claimant claims for sums due under a/various Mail Order Agreement(s) entered into between Shop Direct Limited and the Defendant.

The rights of Shop Direct Limited passed to the Claimant pursuant to an assignment dated 21/11/06 between Shop Direct Limited and the Claimant.

The agreement(s) ( including the original and varied terms and conditions) was/were terminated (The Termination Notice)upon the Defendant failure to comply with the terms of the agreement(s) and or the statutory Notice of Default served by Shop Direct Limited. ("Copy of Default Notice / relevant record in communications log showing service )

The claimant complied with Section III and IV and annex B of the PD Pre-Action Conduct.

Mail Order Account number xxxxxxxx balance of xxx.xx as 2/11/06. Full statement of account

Interest under s69 of the county courtlink3.gif Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year from the assignment Date(s) to 9/8/11 of xxx.xx and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment at a daily rate of 0.21 AND costs.

 

 

 

Even if it wasn't Stat Barred I very much doubt they'll have an agreement.

 

What date is on the claim form? The clock is ticking - you have 33 days till defence due unless an extension is agreed, so watch the clock.

 

There's a SAR template link in my blog, linked below, btw

Deff a SAR to Original Co, you could do a CCA to Westcot but it wouldn't stop the clock now the claim's been issued. The 31.14 request will throw up whether there's an agreement or not and is more powerful as can be enforced if they don't comply.

Hi all

 

Just an update to my situation.

 

It is now over 7 days since the CPR31.14 was sent to Wescot and I have heard nothing back.

 

Should I just go with the below defence ?

 

1. The Claimant's claim was issued on xth August 2011.

 

2. The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980. The claimant should already be aware more than 6 years have elapsed between cause of action accrued and the court claim by their court submission.

 

3. The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £xxxx.xx or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

 

I AM ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT THE CONTENTS OF THIS DEFENCE ARE TRUE.

 

Signed:

 

Dated:

 

HM
