    • god don't waste money on gyms nor court. please stop being conned by terms in a contract that is neither legally enforceable nor cast in any type of contract law stone.   quite the opposite..gyms have not done court since their miserable attempt to enforce them since 2012, when a judge ruled they were not entitled to any remaining contractual payments until end of contract.   dear sir  with regard to my membership number xxx of gym xxxx at (location)   i hereby demand you cancel my contract forthwith.   i shall not be entering into any further communications upon the matter by whatever method.   thank you for you time    
    • this was the last communication I've had from Packlink on 8/04/2021:   Dear, After completing the investigation with the carrier the shipment has been confirmed as lost. I am writing to let you know that the dossier has been transferred to the Claims department for the final evaluation. · PACKLINK ORDER: xxxxxx · SHIPPING LABEL: xxxxxxxxxx · CARRIER NAME: hermes_uk · CLAIM TYPE: Loss · CLAIM STATUS: Investigation complete/Transferred to claims department What happens now, when I will receive the compensation? The Claim Department will now analyse the documents and evidence provided and give you an answer as soon as possible. From this communication we aim to settle to your claim within 30 days. In Packlink we do everything we can to resolve all the claims with the insurance company and/or the carrier as quickly as possible. However, keep in mind we need to contact the carrier to verify the liability for the incident, and to report the outcome and/or respective liquidation of the case.     the last communication I had from from Hermes 7/04/2021: Reference: xxxx Parcel ID: xxxxxx Subject: Hermes email enquiry   You recently requested assistance through our online support pages.

    • Hi thanks dx.   I have amended and my updated version is below.   Defence   1. I the Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   2. It is admitted that I have had a supply and service agreement with Co-operative Energy in the past. During the period, Co-operative Energy actively blocked me from changing to a cheaper tariff or switching provider as there was an outstanding balance on the account.   3.Throughout this period Co-operative Energy only ever served estimated bills which were grossly over estimated with values unrelated to actual use. This is shown in the one copy of a bill (the final bill) that the claimant has been able to provide. There was and still remains an unresolved dispute with Co-operative Energy which was never resolved prior to the assignment of the alleged debt. Furthermore, the claimant has given no details as to the full breakdown of their claim and what dates it relates to, so I am unable to defend specifically until the claimant can particularise and quantify its pleadings.   4. Pursuant to OFGEM code of back billing rules the alleged charges are now over 12 months old and relate to charges which have not been billed correctly by Co-operative Energy and are therefore prevented from charging.   5. The claimant does not have access to the agreement nor was the Assignor required to retain a copy. Therefore their claim is unsubstantiated.   Pursuant to the civil procedure rules Practice Direction 16 (7.3) Where a claim is based upon a written agreement.   1) a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement,  the original(s) should be available at the hearing along with a complete breakdown of how the charges accrued by date and amount.   With the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to: -   a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement. b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed. c) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.   6. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   7. It is therefore denied that the defendant is indebted to the claimant as alleged or at all.
    • Thank you I shall give this a go.  If I had the money I'd take it to court just to prove a point in what they are doing is completely wrong. It feels like I'm being held to ransome! 
    • then simply write (by royal mail 2nd class only - not ever email..get free proof of posting from any PO counter) and cancel your membership from todays date.   generally speaking with most gyms you should give 1 month notice before then cancelling your payment method to allow the one membership payment to be taken   however in your case, the 'free' period regarding payment covers that time so cancel your DD too.   Roko are much like David Lloyd gyms, they insist, as they elude too in their schedule in your 1st post, to it being 3mts notice, it is NOT

    • 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!

Hi, add-enuff

There seem to be two distinct schools of thought on this.

1. If you have been in overdraft and have been paying interest, then you are entitled to reclaim it as a demonstrable loss.

2. The 8 per cent is the interest compensation.

3. (OK, there are three schools of thought - but I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition:)) You can claim back the interest they have charged you and, on the basis of reciprocity, seek the interest rate they would charge you IN ADDITION, as it's unauthorised borrowing.

 

I personally incline to 1+2: claim back the interest you've been charged, and the 8 per cent statutory in addition.

On that basis, when you file your claim you add 8 per cent compounded, to each charge.

Hope I've explained that properly.

And yes, great news on everyone's claim. BBC's Money Programme dragged the banks over the steaming hot coals this evening. The lady from teh British Banking Association looked distinctly uncomfortable, I'm delighted to say.

Thanks Westy I think I'll take your advice and carry on as that is how I read the info originally.

I saw the programme too, that woman was really scary esp' the green eyeshaddow...not that I want to demonize the poor thing..bless

Did you see the part where she said that charges were not penalties but service charges....just how is being charged into spiralling debt a service?

 

I don't think the banks will change their actions in any way at all, but you'd think they would at least reduce the charges to the estimated £2-4 that unpaid items etc may actually cost them, if only to reduce the number of refund claims, and to save face. I was suprised that hardly any 'manual interventions' are required due to high tech computer sysytems used....so why exactly are they charging us? Oh yeah I forgot....profits!!!

'evening all

 

Just a quick Q: I have to wait for DSS to send me a letter confirming I'm on benefit so I don't have to pay court costs to file the claim against Nat West. BUT it wont be here until after Xmas. Does it matter as this is longer than Nat West had to reply to my last letter (should have been last Thurs!)....

 

Anyway folks HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSEPEROUS NEW YEAR!!!:D

No, you set your own timetable.

Have a great Christmas.

Hi folks

 

The story so far:

 

Put the claim into the court 22 Dec 07

 

Date of issue to NAT WEST 11 Jan 07 so they have until 25 Jan to respond

 

Received 2 letters from Staurt Higley basically playing for time whilst they 'investigate'

 

Another £100 in charges taken from account which made me O/D again (and so the cycle repeats itself!):-x

 

Phoned by Nat West Loan Insurance dept' wanting to know if I'm still disabled and unable to work (I would have taken this as concern for my health and well being but for the sarky tone in the callers voice). Also call from Lending Dept threatening to withdraw my debit card as I went O/D when they deducted the charges I think I know where this will be heading...

 

Anyway how is everyone else getting on? Any sucess stories to keep us motivated?

 

Cheers & good luck to all :)

Hi there add-enuff,

 

Loadsa payouts today, infact. Natwest have a crater in their pockets this morning:D

 

I'm truely jealous but it wont be too long now, me thinks.

 

Buggers aren't they (Natwest, I mean not the lucky soles that have had settlements!). I've had to hand in all my cards, which is okay seeing as though I've got no money, and have had several weeks of automated and s**tfaced phone calls from the so-called 'customer care team'.

I sent them a lovely letter regarding harrassment and taken away their right to pass my details on to any third party, just incase they decide that they are going to default me. Shame the letter didn't include 'stick that in your pipe and smoke it':p!!!!

 

We'll get through this, it can't all be bad. Hope that has cheered you up, anyways, one does try you know;)

Hiya Muggins

 

Yep, either NW have finally got the message and decided to pay up or (more likely) they are clearing the decks in preparation for the avalanche of claims coming their way after the recent publicity about them ripping off their customers. Ah my heart bleeds for 'em :lol: I like the idea of your letter re' 'harrassment' and passing your details to a third party. I hadn't thought of that, but will prob' mention it when contact me.

 

,I was just reading the Notice of Issue from the court. Do I have to do anything now, or do I just wait for NW to file the usual defence? Don't want to make any mistakes after all this time.

 

Congratulations to all of you who have received your money, your sucess stories keep me going and spur me on. :D

Set your clock

 

Allow 5 days from the notice of issue for service followed by 14 days for them to acknowledge followed by a further 14 days for them to defend failing either of which you can apply for summary judgment.

Bit of a waiting game now, I'm afraid...just like cat and mouse.

 

I concur wot Joncris has advised. Be aware that you may receive a copy of Natwests Defence (if they bother) before the court. In it Cobbetts may ask you to do something, say like, 'particularise your claim', DONT PANIC.

Wait for the court, they will advise you of what is to be expected, not Cobbetts.

Either way let us know how it all progressess.

Hiya

 

Received a letter from NW (Stuart Higley) today. Lots of guff about their 'extensive services to many satisfied customers', 'terms & conditions'... Blah, blah, blah

 

The letter makes no ref' to the court claim. I take it that this letter does not constitute a formal defence to the court claim (I was expecting a formal Defence to come via the court) Thus I stick to my timetable allowing 14 days from date of issue

 

I'm going to reject their offer to pay £1588.92 in my NW acc (which is my claim less the interest) as they want me to accept it as full and final settlement. Cheeky so & so!

 

The lovely Mr Higley states that if I am unwilling to accept future charges NW will consider withdrawing banking facilities from me (now they realise that I'm not going to allow them to rip me off!)or cancelling my debit card (Solo) and down grading acc to one that doesn't allow D/Debits. I wonder if they don't want me to continue repaying the loan they forced me into then?:D since it's paid via D/ debit from the acc'

 

I was going to respond as follows, what do you think?

 

1) reject offer and state that I will only accept the FULL amount claimed and that they need to pay up or defend the court claim and STOP sending me threatening letters as I am disabled & unwell and find this such threats v emotionally distressing

 

2) I want the repayment in the form of a cheque made out to me but not one I have to pay into NW acc

 

3) tell them I intend to claim for all charges levied against me since I submitted the court claim, as it is them deducting charges that made me O/Drawn (AGAIN!!!!) and generated further charegs. (I think this would mean a separate claim from scratch)

 

4) Demand that they remove any default against me (ie with credit ref agencies)

 

Have I covered everything? Any advice / ideas would be appreciated...

Too right, this is 'your' claim and not theirs. Stick to your guns!!!! Oh, you will receive a formal notice from the court, just give it time.

 

I'm going to reject their offer to pay £1588.92 in my NW acc (which is my claim less the interest) as they want me to accept it as full and final settlement. Cheeky so & so!

 

Yep, use the rejection of settlement letter found in the templates section

 

The lovely Mr Higley states that if I am unwilling to accept future charges NW will consider withdrawing banking facilities from me (now they realise that I'm not going to allow them to rip me off!)or cancelling my debit card (Solo) and down grading acc to one that doesn't allow D/Debits. I wonder if they don't want me to continue repaying the loan they forced me into then?:D since it's paid via D/ debit from the acc'

 

Silly b*****s, they certainly won't shut you down whilst you owe them money. They most definately will once you get whats owed and providing you pay them off in full.

 

I was going to respond as follows, what do you think?

 

1) reject offer and state that I will only accept the FULL amount claimed and that they need to pay up or defend the court claim and STOP sending me threatening letters as I am disabled & unwell and find this such threats v emotionally distressing

 

Sounds good to me. Have you considered using the harrassment letter I told you about previously, and revoke their right to pass your details on to third parties, just to stick the boot in that little bit extra?!!!!

 

2) I want the repayment in the form of a cheque made out to me but not one I have to pay into NW acc

 

Me too, but I've read that even if they try this, and depending on where you bank it, the acount number they sometimes but on the chq is for reference only, some other banks are quite willing to accept it. But well worth the clarification, me thinks.

 

3) tell them I intend to claim for all charges levied against me since I submitted the court claim, as it is them deducting charges that made me O/Drawn (AGAIN!!!!) and generated further charegs. (I think this would mean a separate claim from scratch)

 

Yes, indeed. This does often mean a seperate claim, but I have it on good authority that it doesn't need to get that far. They are more likely to pay up at the prelimary stage than go through court again.

 

4) Demand that they remove any default against me (ie with credit ref agencies)

 

Again, well worth the mention, but do think about the letters I have mentioned. Pm me and I'll send them if you can't find links on here.

 

Have I covered everything? Any advice / ideas would be appreciated...

I think that's everything covered, if anything else comes to mind I'll let you know.

Hiya

 

Thanks ever so much for the above. Have used the Refusal Letter template as basis of response, just added stuff about not allowing info to 3rd party and stopping harassment (couldn't find yours so hope what I wrote was OK - they'll get the gist anyway) Will post tomorrow and take copy of it & Higley's letter to the Court.

 

Thanks again

 

Ps. Was listening to radio and half asleep today so not sure if I heard this right: Is is true that some guy sent bailiffs to his back to seize there computers when they didn't repay his bank charges?

 

Sounds like my kinda guy!!!!!

News to me, but I agree, sounds as though I'd get on with him too:p

 

Glad that you've sent the refusal letter with a harrassment part added on. You should have found both the 'Harrassment by telephone letter' in the bank templates section above the 'Rejection of settlement letter' also in the bank templates section, you nana. Never mind, so long as you get the response you desire:)

 

You do not need to take a copy of Higleys letter to the court, save it as evidence for your court bundle....if it comes to that.

Wouldn't want you wasting your money on a journey you need not do.

 

Anyways, I'm here if you need to let off steam and I'll be keeping tabs on your progress.

Again I seem to have had too much information a little too late:-(

 

I opened a new account and transferred any benefit payments into the new account prior to starting my court claim, as a matter of course. But its helpful for evryone else out there. Ta.

Hi all

 

So I received the following from the court today (14 day deadline):notification that NW has filed an Acknowledgement of Service, copy of the expected letter from Cobbetts to court re' acknowledgement of service, copy of N9 in which NW 'intend to defend all of the claim'

 

So looks like they are going to drag things out for at least another 28 days (yawn!!!!!) Am guessing this is their standard MO and that I should wait for the court to get in touch with me / Cobbetts to make the next move.

 

Interestingly got a text from NW yesterday demanding that I contact them ASAP, which I ignored as I have written to Higley about 'telephone harassment'........oooooh I'm scared!!!!!!(runs away to hide under duvet LOL:p )

Good on you, let them put that in their pipe and smoke it:D

Yep, just sit back and wait for their defence. It is more than likely that you'll receive a copy from them first, before the court, asking you to acknowledge it. Do as they have asked (this time round, only) and acknowledge their defence and nothing more. The court will then send you a copy of their defence followed by and Allocation Questionnaire.

There is a guide for completion in the bank templates section, along with the new draft order for direction. See below.

Any probs then get back to me.

 

I have responded to your pm, a long response, but hopefully of some use. Get in touch is you need anything else.

With regards to your AQ, I forgot his bit, sorry...slap wrists:o

 

Other Information - Section G:

 

 

Quote:

I am respectfully requesting that my claim be allocated to the small claims track.

 

This issue is not a complicated one; it is an issue of fact and not of law. The issue is only whether the money levied by the Defendant in respect of its customer’s contractual breaches exceed their actual costs incurred. I am happy to pay their actual costs and I am surprised the Defendant did not counterclaim for these, because I would have paid them without argument.

 

However, the continuing problem is, (in common with the 100s of other cases currently being brought by other bank customers), that the banks refuse to reveal the details of their penalty-charging regime. As the banks have a fiduciary duty towards their customers, they have a duty to deal straightforwardly and in utmost good faith.

 

Accordingly, I would respectfully ask that the court in this case, not withstanding allocation to the small claims track, order standard disclosure. I understand that it is in the courts discretion to do so. This would bring a rapid end, not only to this litigation, but would also likely bring an end to much of the litigation in progress against other high-street banks.

 

 

It's a bit of squeeze, but very important you enter all the details.

 

Include copy of schedule

 

Cheque to HM Courts Service

 

Fee will be added automatically to your claim

 

Send copy of your AQ to Cobbetts

 

Hope this helps!! wink.gif
