    • June Mummery, a Brexit Party MEP, has just woken up to the fact that leaving Europe gives us less control over fisheries. From her Twitter feed.   Attending the penultimate session of the #EuropeanParliament’s #FisheriesCommittee #PECHcommittee) with #BritishMEPs. The big question now is, who will be here to hold these people to account while they still control Britain’s waters, but the UK has no representation?
    • I'm afraid my response is going to be a bit more doom and gloom than my site team colleague. I'm afraid the principle of "buyer beware" is a pretty old principle and it doesn't always protect the private seller. However, I think you will have to wait and see what they come back to you about in writing. My understanding so far – as you don't even seem to know their address or who they are – is that everything has been done on the telephone. If they decide to come back at you in writing with a list of defects and am afraid we will have to look at it carefully because although you won't be particularly affected by consumer protection legislation, there are still basic rules of contract which could protect the purchaser. I'm sorry also to give a bit of a slapped wrist here, because the selling of vehicle in the circumstances without even ascertaining the identity of the purchaser and without keeping the necessary documents to inform the DVLA of the new ownership is highly irresponsible. I suppose this is going to put the frighteners on you – but you had better be aware of the possibilities. The first thing that occurs to me is that this vehicle may have been bought by a trader who was anxious not to add any more owners to the vehicle because that would reduce the value even more. Therefore you might have some fairly unscrupulous trader selling your vehicle on to another private purchaser who themselves may not properly register the vehicle so that if it attracts any parking fines or any other attention from agencies, could come back to you as you are the registered owner. You would be able to deal with this problem eventually but it would certainly be complicated. Also an extreme scenario is that the vehicle could eventually be used for unlawful purposes – and once again the registration leads back to you. I think that your daughter had better read the thread and had better take the lesson. As I have said, the use of the vehicle for some unlawful purpose is probably an extreme idea and is unlikely to happen. However, the idea that the vehicle has been bought by trader who wants to conceal the fact that it has had an additional purchaser – him/herself – is a highly possible scenario. You haven't told us anything about the vehicle – what is it, model, make, mileage, condition, price, – and also how was advertised, where was advertise, and what claims did you make for it. I do hope you don't hear anything more about this problem that you better give us all the information and if there is any fallout as a result of what your daughter is done then of course come back here and will it be very pleased to try and help you. In the meantime I would suggest that you contact DVLA and tell them that you have now parted company with the vehicle and that it is no longer yours. Even though you won't be able to give them the address of the new owner, you will be able to give them the name and you had better put it on record. I'm not sure if it's an offence not to have the details of the new owner and to pass them on to DVLA – but I would suggest anyway, that you tell DVLA. Before you start doing this though, standby for maybe one or two other people to contribute to this thread and to disagree with me. I think you need to have a range of opinions on this.   One further thing – you may be tempted simply to take the vehicle back – but unfortunately you won't be able to be certain that it is in exactly the same condition as it was when you sold it. This could give you another problem that may be if you decide to cut your losses and tell the purchaser to return the vehicle, you may not be completely happy when you receive it – and they will simply be a dispute as to what has happened to it during its absence
    • Ok , mine is  55, it's old but they were fixing these under warranty when the cars were brand new.  Aside from that the car is super reliable.
    • Can you tell us the name of the dealership please?   HB
    • Ahh ok, yup, when I sent my SAR to Natwest, they included everything going all the way back to the year 2000, Current accounts, Credit Cards everything. So be prepared for information overload.

Hi all,

 

I recently sent a Statute Barred letter to Bryan Carter on behalf of my wife as

 

she had received a demand for payment on an account that she thought was Statute Barred.

 

She received a reply from uncle Bryan today stating that the debt she referred to was not statute barred as she had made a £1 payment on the account in June 2008,

 

she does not recall making any such payment, nor does it show on our credit file

 

what should she do about it.

 

Bryan Carter are acting on behalf of Arrow Global.

Did she send a CCA request for a copy of the agreement in 2008 and enclose the fee of £1 postal order?

 

That aside, you need to write to BC (by recorded delivery) stating you have no knowledge of the payment

and request they provide details of how, where and when the payment was made.

If you need help with the letter I can draft one for you.

Normal rubbish from Mr Carter.

 

You need to ask how the payment was made, cheque or PO number, bank transfer or cash?

 

If they come back with an answer and can PROVE 100% a payment was made, I'm sure it would have been for a CCA request.

As far as my wife remembers Arrow was not the original DCA chasing for the recovery of this debt owing to Littlewoods.

 

As somebody else has stated in there reply the £1 uncle bryan claims was paid in June 2008 was probably for a cca but she cannot remember.

This debt is so old that my wife cannot remember much about it,

 

yes it is possible that the £1 unlcle Bryan is refering to may have been for a CCA request.

 

Arrow Global was not the original DCA of this debt.

 

A draft letter would be most helpful,

 

thanks.

Hi, affixed is the letter. You just need to fill in addresses and reference no from Carter's letter. Make sure it all stays on one page. Send the letter by recorded delivery and keep a copy for yourself - check on the royalmail website a few days after posting to print off the signed for receipt and staple it to your copy of the letter- keep in a safe place in case we need it later.

 

Do you have a copy of the CCA request letter you sent in 2008?

No unfortunately not I think that it would have been put through the shredder some time ago as my wife probably did not expect this debt to reserect itself again.

Thanks for letter.

It's not until you find sites like this one and learn about what is going on in the debt collection industry.

 

Yes I agree how many people do fall for this trick.

 

This actual debt goes back some 8 or more years ago and I believe it was a dca called scot call who first got involved with the debt.

 

Until my wife started getting letters we had never heard of Arrow Global Guernsey.

Hi one and all,

 

my wife has started receiving demands for full payment for an old account that she has been paying £1.46 a month for since I don't know when,

 

they have even offered to reduce the debt.

 

Are they allowed to make such a demand in view of the fact that payment has been paid on regular monthly basis.

if wetcloths are offering a disount

 

that means there is something WRONG

you need to find out WHAT

and have you ever sent them an SAR

 

and have you ever sent the fleecers you are paying a CCA request?

 

blindly paying a debt for many years is never a good idea

In answer to your questions

I will do my best to give you a response.

 

The OC is Arrow global Guernsey, that's to say this is what is given in the letter from Wescot's,

 

no SAR has ever been sent,

yes a CCA request was sent a long time ago.

 

My wife agreed to pay £1 a month many years ago in fact more than 6 + years ago,

then as time went on this payment increased to £1.46

 

the last payment via standing order was in June 2013.

 

My wife recently sent a statute barred letter as she did not recognise the debt.

Arrow Global their main business is debt purchase and they often use Westcott for collection purposes,which indicates Westcott do not own the debt,and Arrow Global will have purchased the debt from Bank/Credit Card Company etc etc.

 

If you have been paying Westcott as you indicate then statute barred will not apply

 

You say you made a CCA request,what was the result, or did they not reply?

 

Have you been receiving statements from Arrow or Westcott,you should receive a copy each year,this is an absolute minimum?

 

As dx states there is something wrong with the account,so the CCA result is a good place to start

Hi FS,

 

as I have stated to DX my wife does not remember who the original OC is.

 

She has not received a single statement in all the years that she has been paying this debt.

 

The other factor in this saga is that the standing order is being paid to Brian Carter,

 

I think I have lost the plot.

 

So who is collecting this debt??
