    • Hi Thankyou for your response    yes it is ! I sent of a SAR and within the comms Log Lloyds advised PRA  no CCA or paperwork available  .  hence account unenforceable.   The default is listed as PRA so does that mean it’s active ?  I can’t see a default for LLoyds on there.  I will follow your advice Thankyou 
    • i will guess this is:   a debt buyer dca cannot register a default notice    if the original creditor registered a default notice then get a copy of that  staple it to a letter to PRA and demand the account is removed from your credit file forthwith or a serious complaint will be registered with the ICO and financial compensation will be sought.   give them 14 days 
    • Good Evening,    Please may I ask for some information re default markers on Credit Report ?    I had a CC with a Bank default around Jan 2014. Nothing was registered on my Credit Report The debt was later sold on a few times. Eventually to PRA in 2017 where it is unenforceable.   On my Clearscore report that I have recently downloaded it says “ In default PRA GRoup 5th April 2017”. when I click onto this it shows no markings on any month from 2014. so my question is can PRA register the default from 2017. I’m unsure if it drops off from The bank in 2014 or after PRA registered in 2017.    thanks for any advice you can give   
    • there you go all done i thought i could see you'ed left your reg number and their PCN number in your pictures.   there are quite a few threads here on this only allowed 30mins on certain esso forecourts total rubbish ofcourse  and none haver gone anywhere so far FWIW.   dx      
    • Highly likely providing you were the first private buyer to purchase the car with HP or conditional sale outstanding the solicitors will conclude that you have good title and act accordingly  As dx says let consumer law deal with this, keep the vehicle well hidden just in case but if you turn up at the sellers work and cause problems and the Police become involved  its highly likely you will be the one with big problems

    • 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!

Some advice please would be appreciated with regards to Credit Agreements and PPI


I have a copy of my Old Egg Card Agreement dated 28/01/2001 - Amazed I kept it but its the only CC I currently have which is now with Barclaycard



The first page of the Credit Agreement has a section on PPI


Limit x


Interest and Credit Charges x



Repayments x



Your Repayment Protection premium is payable to the insurer at 69 pence per £100 of your monthly

statement balance for the accident, sickness, unemploymen, life and serious

illness cover you have choosen in accordance with the Egg Card Repayment

Protection Policy document supplied to you




The argument I am currently having with Barclaycard is they state that PPI was optional on the Credit Agreement, and I am stating the following


No sign of the word optional against the PPI details on the first page of the Credit Agreement or maximum amount on the credit agreement

I was made to feel that PPI was not optional once again after the on-line application with its pre-ticked box

No where did it say interest would be added to the PPI

I could only cancel the PPI policy if I took out a new credit agreement - this is now considered to be unfair by the FSA



Are my arguments valid, I appreciate any comments and differing opinions, thanks in advance

What are you looking to achieve - reclaiming the Payment Protection Insurance or having the agreement declared unenforceable ?


I think you would be on dangerous ground to try and force the issue of unenforceability on your own as the claimant. You would more likely succeed in reclaiming a mis sold policy.


Although looking at the quotes you have retrieved from the FSA handbook, it looks like you have a pretty persuasive argument backed by the FSA !!

Hello there Citizen


I am trying to reclaim the ppi back rather than the enforcement route and a court case. (as I currently owe nothing on the card - but owed thousands a while back - balance cleared with an Egg loan with guess what PPI forced on me by an Egg representative during the telephone application - still got the original agreement sent off to Canada Square) I have replied back to Barclaycard as they now hold my Egg account with the information I gathered.


I just wanted to know and possibly make people aware of if a Credit Agreement has no optional section on the front of the agreement for PPI or on the reverse of the Credit Agreement - then PPI becomes part of the Credit Agreement and cannot be cancelled without cancelling the whole of the Credit agreement.


I was hoping that people would look at the thread and confirm this.... Thus making others aware.


Hopefully someone like yourself and more learned visitors to the thread will confirm this.. making it grounds for easily justifying PPI and also possibly the non-enforceable route if money owed.


Any further advice/information and hopefully confirmation welcomed

well i'm not going to enter the debate on that ..pers i dont think there is anything in it

there are plenty of examples of PPI being reclaimed & cancelled on EGG CC accounts.


it is just removed as per FOS/FSA guidelines to place the consumer back into the position of no PPI.

they also state there is no need for a new agreementbut a restructure.


my focus would be on the refinancing loan .


you've had PPI + int added to rolled over PPI + INT from the CC..loads of money.


if you are reclaiming on the loan, you need to include the CC PPI rollover too .


and any PENALTY charges as a result on either account too.

Hello and thanks DX


I just want to add my two pence worth on how I see Egg practices as being despicable.


Think about it.........


Mass Marketing exercise used by Egg to promote PPI through the website just before the actual application for the Credit Card. A pre-ticked box on PPI offering no guidance on the removal of the tick. Note Internet sale classed as "Non Advised" sale a cracking excuse for getting out of future claims/legal actions on PPI issues.


You have now been accepted for the Credit Card we will send out a Credit agreement acknowledging your successful application.


You receive your Credit Agreement with an "Approved Limit" and tied in PPI to the Credit Agreement.


1. Your now in a position where you do not know once again whether you need PPI as you still do not know what the credit limit is. Example a £1000 limit no-one repeat no-one would agree to take out PPI on this amount.

2. They then use peoples "vanity" with regards to "Approved Limit" in thinking that if they sign up to the "single credit agreement " with PPI as part of the agreement" you should would expect a larger Credit Agreement will be agreed as Egg are protecting themselves.

3. You receive you card and people think wow "Egg are great" look at that massive "Approved Limit" which they give you once you have agreed to take out the PPI.

4. You now use your Egg card for everything knowing no matter what the item you can pay for it.

5. All the while Egg are making a fortune in interest on the PPI payments as its charged at the interest rate of the card so they Egg don't care what your outstanding balance is they are making to much money.

6. Years later you realise your monthly payments are massive, how can you cut these payments down, you look at your statements and think PPI is costing me a fortune, I know I will cancel the PPI BUT and a big BUT! you cannot as its a single "Credit Agreement", to cancel it you would be expected to pay back the outstanding balance.

7. You now scream help! I am paying a fortune every month and getting nowhere paying off the balance, I think I need a loan. I think I will approach those nice people at Egg they seem nice and approachable.

8. You now take out a loan with Egg, you feel as though due to your particular circumstances it would be better talking to someone during your loan application.

9. Your now sold once again by greedy Egg PPI .... even though they work in a "Non advised" capacity (Egg's downfall - fined for this action), because your informed it will help with your application.


At this point you think Egg are absolutely wonderful!, they really helped me when my back was against the wall.


What people don't realise is, Egg are really responsible for putting you in this position in the first place, Approved limits that turned out to be "in the tens of thousands" that is what I call irresponsible lending.


What a dream [problem], only problem was they got greedy! Credit Agreements with no option but to take the PPI as part of a single agreement. Can't take them to court your told as they acted in a "Non Advised" capacity on the PPI, only problem was they eventually got caught out because of their greed and with this uproar on PPI,people started to investigate with the use of the Internet their actual rights to where they stand


I think the persons responsible for all this are now retired living the life on there own! Carribean Island, we should be hounding these sharks for thinking of this [problem] and other such similar scams.


Hopefully not many people fell into the same trap I did, and if they did, remember the above so as not to make the same mistake twice

I have just received a letter back from Canada Square stating they have upheld my complaint and are now waiting on a acceptance letter from myself to the amount they have worked out.


The question I have is with regards to other posts about a loan to pay off a old Egg card (now Barclaycard) and roll over ppi. Ie loan taken out with PPI to payoff PPI.


To who should I seek compensation from for the PPI rollover - Canada Square or Barclaycard.


Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Unfortunately I have sent SAR to Barclaycard asking for the statements to be able to work out the PPI amount carried over to the loan - but as yet awaiting details of SAR and them accepting that PPI should be repaid have yet to be received . All I can remember of the 25K loan to now Canada Square the payment to the Egg card was either 11K or 14K.


So still wondering because its no longer just cracked Egg but split into two very different companies, who should I seek the PPI roll-over from, as I do not want to send an acceptance letter to Canada Square if the amount offered is incorrect. Thanks in advance for any advice.

ok so you basically sort of jumped the gun


asked for PPI back before you actually had all the info.


ok no sweat.


you're just gonna have to play it by ear then.


if BC now own the CC then they will be responsible for the rollover of the CC PPI into the loan

Thanks DX you are a star.


I sent details to Canada Square showing the original credit agreement and details of employment 4 * salary Death in Service (pension details etc,etc) and also stated telephone application with PPI rammed down my throat.


Did not expect them to agree within the space of two weeks accepting my claim. Thought I would be correlating all the details of CC and SAR to Canada Square before both agreed to payup.


Thanks for the answer, that makes a lot of sense I was looking at so many scenario's
