    • 1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The claimant even fails to refer to an agreement number. Therefore 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. Paragraph 2 is noted. Whilst I have had dealings with Barclaycard given that claimant fails to refer to an account number I am unaware what agreement the claimant wishes to rely upon.   3.Paragraph 3 is noted although without knowledge of which account the claimant refers to I can neither admit or deny the receipt of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87(1) CCA1974 being received.   4. Paragraph 4 is noted but again as above I am not aware of what agreement the assignment refers to.   5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from PRA group (UK) Limited by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via 1st class recorded post on 06/06/2024 and further to the above I sent PRA group UK Portfolios Ltd a section 78 request via 1st class recorded post on 06/06/2024.   To date, PRA Group Ltd are yet to furnish me with the requested information  and therefore prevented from enforcing the alleged agreement.   6.Therefore with the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to evidence and :   a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for; c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974. d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi All,

 

I took out a Loan with Payday Express on the 1st September in order to pay an urgent tax bill that i received last week. I have now been given the money from elsewhere and called to ask if I could cancel my loan for £735. I was told yesterday (and just now) that as this is not my first Loan with the company I am not allowed to cancel the agreement and must pay the full interest on top of the loan amount. This is stated in their terms and conditions also. However, I am sure that I have a legal right to be able to cancel this agreement (obviously paying the interest for the days incurred on the loan). At present, it seems as if there is no budging them, but i refuse to pay the full amount as i cannot see what difference it makes as to whether this is your first or 100th Loan with the company. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have sent the following E-Mail in regards to this issue. Not that I will get a reply.

 

Good Afternoon,

 

I am contacting you once again in regards to my recent loan that was taken out with you on the 1st September that i would wish to withdraw.

 

I have been informed by members of your staff that as I am not a first time customer of Payday Express, I am not permitted to withdraw from my Loan Agreement.

 

After contact the Consumer Action Group and consulting the Irresponsible lending

– OFT guidance for creditors, I can confirm that this is a breach of the OFT guidelines.

 

The Irresponsible lending – OFT guidance for creditors states the following.

 

"The right of withdrawal

The creditor should inform the borrower of the effect of the exercise of any right

of withdrawal from the agreement and how and when this right may be

exercised.

The right of withdrawal under section 66A of the Act applies to all

regulated consumer credit agreements except where the agreement is:

a) for credit which exceeds £60,260

b) a credit agreement secured on land

c) a restricted-use credit agreement to finance the purchase of land

d) an agreement for a bridging loan in connection with the purchase

of land or

e) an overdraft agreement (except for overdrafts for non-business

purposes where the credit is not repayable on demand or within

OFT1107 | 26

three months).

 

Borrowers have a period of 14 calendar days (from the date calculated in

accordance with section 66A(3) of the Act) in which to withdraw from a

credit agreement without giving any reason.17"

 

I requested to withdraw my loan yesterday and was informed that I was unable to. I would advise that you please contact me as soon as possible in order to resolve this issue. This incident WILL be passed to the appropriate authorities to investigate should this not be resolved urgently.

 

Kind Regards,

My concern is if they don't reply and they wait until the 14 days are up and i no longer have a leg to stand on. I am obviously eager to get this sorted as soon as possible, but unsuprisingly, they are not.

Cancel you bank card and letter to bank cancelling the CPA.

You will then find them more than helpful to get the loan amount paid back,make sure once you have cancelled everything you contact them,tell them you have cancelled the CPA and they no longer have any authority to debit your card.

 

Make sure if possible you have the date/confirmation email of when you wanted to cancel and pay them back,interest stops on that date and not when they change their minds about if you can cancel or not.

Okay, now i really need you guys help! I spoke with one of the PDE team leaders yesterday who informed me that this is infact an 'Ongoing Loan Account Facility'. Which i was not aware of at all. According to the agreement that I was sent by the team leader it does state that 'this is an ongoing loan account facility' therefore my right to withdraw was 14 days from when that was signed (About a year ago). The loan agreement is then 're-activated' when a new loan is taken out (is this allowed!) I did actually send PDE an email about a month ago, asking them to remove all of my details, so this 'ongoing agreement' should have been terminated at that point anyway, however I am unsure whether i am able to locate this email. Below is a copy of the email that i have recieved from the PDE Team Leader.

 

"Dear Mr ****,

I write with regard to our telephone conversation a moment ago, please find attached as requested a copy of your credit agreement which was electronically signed on 19th August 2011.

 

To confirm, this is a “running account loan facility” and therefore you have only electronically signed this one agreement since 19th August 2011. You had the right to withdraw from this agreement at any time before the end of 14 days, beginning with the day after it was signed.

On every subsequent application you have made, this credit agreement has been reactivated.

The balance of £937.50 is currently due on 28th September 2012 however should you have any further queries on this matter please do not hesitate to call me on the number below. Alternatively you could respond to our Customer Care department via the email address above.

Kind regards"

 

Help would be really appreciated!

Theyre talking crap. Each loan is a brand new loan and is sibject to the usual statutory laws. No terms and co ditions that they apply can overrule statutory law. Get a full complaint in to the regulators.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Are you sure? The way that this is described is that it is an ongoing account so it doesn't look like a 'new loan' as such. I am unsure what I would be able to report to the regulators, as it is there in their terms and conditions. Fortunately, the bank account they have details for is closed, so I really am not too fussed about paying them PROVIDING i know that I am within my rights and correct, otherwise they will be charging me etc.

They can describe it however they want.it doesnt change the fact that it is a new loan and as such it is subject to statutory law.

I have sent them the following e-mail. Thankyou again for your advice, i shall update you when i get a further reply.

 

Good Morning ****,

 

I have obtained further advice in regards to your reply and have been informed the following. Despite the fact that this is described as an 'Ongoing Loan Facility' it does not deter from the fact that this is in-fact a new loan and is therefore subject to statutory law and therefore my right of withdrawal still stands. This New Loan was taken out on the 1st September 2012 and was requested to be cancelled on Monday 3rd September. Please adhere to this request.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Their argument will be that it is not a 'new loan' ... my only arguement back to them is that.. well, it is.

Further Update: I have found an E-Mail from the 17th July to PDE requesting the removal of all of my details from their systems. Therefore i should have not had any ongoing agreement. Now been passed onto their customer care team to investigate. Will wait and see what happens.

The way it is worded leaves you with the impression that the credit agreement regardless of rolling or not is good for a maximum of 70 days and that if you borrow less than the credit limit then you can apply for an additional loan, but it doesn't imply that you can do anything at all with this agreement after those 70 days.

 

In other words, the agreement is misleading and may be in breach of guidelines, I'd complain about that to the relevant regulatory outfits (OFT / FSA) s well as Payday Express them self.

Glad somebody else spotted this. The way it is worded , to me, looks as if to say that the agreement is valid for 70 days... therefore, the agreement is now completely worthless and I am infact not under contract with this company?

To me it reads that they may extend the initial period. However i can see your pointof view as the wording is very vague.

Yes, 42 days for the initial agreement with a maybe extension of 28 days which in my opinion makes it sound like its valid for 42 days from the start, or if extended then its valid for 70 days from the start.

 

Having given it another thought I think what they are trying to claim now is that the 28 days extension can start at any time and doesn't necessarily have to be directly after those 42 days.

None the less, it is still completely unclear which isn't exactly fair. Especially as they have stopped responding to emails and the only way to contact them is through telephone, where i keep getting the same generic responses from staff who seem like they where found sat beneath bridges smoking drugs by the Thames. Unsure what my next action should be.

Good news all, received a call today and was told that a senior manager advised that I am permitted to make an interest free payment. Thank you all for your help with this issue. Hopefully I can help give advice on my experiences to help others in future.

They think they need to give permission for you to make the payment that should have stood originally? haha. Well, at least things are moving in your direction now.
