    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.

Hi this is my first post so here is a brief outline:

 

In 2005 I had a car from welcome car finance the repayments were £216pm,

the total cost of the finance with interest was approx £10k.

 

After paying approx £5000 I had to finish work due to my bipolar,

I phoned WELCOME and informed them that I had finished work and that I could no longer afford the £216pm,

they offered to drop the payments to £100pm which I accepted.

 

About a year ago I asked WELCOME what my balance was and they told me I still owed £6000,

this sounded like to much to owe so I asked them on 4 separate occasions for a statement of payments made,

nothing ever came from them so I stopped the payments for a few months which i now know was not the right thing to do.

 

On Thursday a account manager from WELCOME phoned me to see why I has stopped the payments,

when I told him the reason he asked me if I had sent the £10 fee for the statement,

i explained that no-one had told me i needed to pay £10,

 

he also asked me on which of my accounts i wanted the statement,

i told him i only had one account and he informed me that when i dropped the payments

the original account was closed and a new one opened to clear the original debt and account for the reduced payments.

 

Now i'm not the brightest of people but this sounds like re-financing to me for which they would surely have needed me to sign a new agreement,

which i haven't by the way,

 

hopefully someone can help forward with this matter.

An update on this:

 

I sent the SAR of last week with the £10 PO by recorded delivery,

 

I made my payment of £120 to welcome on saturday of last week,

 

today i get home to a letter from WELCOME saying that my Agreement has now been terminated

and action to recover the goods/outstanding balance can now commence.

 

WELCOME then go on to say

"There are facillities that we can offer to provide you with significant benefits in reducing your debt,

such as interest rate reduction on the basis that you resume mutally acceptable payment arrangement"

if welcome have closed down the old agreement and set up a new one with reduced payments, then yes, you would have to sign a new agreement to vary the original agreement

 

you mention bi-polar

 

why did you not claim on the micky mouse ppi welcome con you into

 

welcome have to send you a full statement of account at least once a year or any charges etc are void

I have never received any statements from WELCOME and i never even knew they had closed the old account and set up a new one till last week.

 

The bipolar was the reason i had to finish work which in turn was the reason i had to reduce my payments.

 

I'm not sure about PPI or any other insurances until i receive the credit agreements but the account manager from Welcome did tell me that there was considerable charges applied to my account, to be fair to him he was really nice and told me what i needed to do and send to WELCOME.

here is copy of the letter that i have drafted to send back to welcome:

 

Dear Sir / Madame

 

In response to your letter dated 13th march,

may I point out that you have communicated with me previously at the above address without the need for proof of identification

and that I have provided a copy of my birth certificate to verify my identity,

as you yourselves stated in your previous letter was a acceptable proof of identification,

 

however as a gesture of goodwill, I have enclosed a photocopy of my passport,

 

I have blanked out the picture and signature as all the details you need are printed onto the passport itself,

 

I now believe that I have complied with all your requests and as such I request a true copy of any agreements

that are held in my name as required under section 77 of the Consumer credit act.

 

I also require an up-to date statement of account as required under section 77a of the Consumer credit act, I enclose the statutory fee of £1.

 

May I also remind you that I sent a formal subject access request for information under section 7 of the Data Protection Act, including the maximum fee of £10 on 26/02/2013.

 

You will be aware that under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have an obligation to comply fully with my request within 40 days.

 

May I please remind you that all communication from your company should be via letters as I am not prepared to discuss this matter over the phone.

 

Thank you

If the 40 days for SAR compliance are up then you should be lodging a formal complaint with the ICO.

 

You should also be considering your option to sue for non compliance.

 

Funny how they are happy with your ID when they want to pester you for money but have an issue with it when you want information from them which you are legally entitled to.

Hello, I received another reply from WELCOME today, the letter is dated 26th March:

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Thank you for your letter received on 12th March requesting a copy of the credit agreement and statement of account under consumer credit act 1974.

 

We acknowledge receipt of the £1.00 statutory fee and are pleased to inform you that your request is being processed.

 

Please note that the £1.00 fee will provide you with your most recent loan agreement, should you require copies of any other loan agreements, please provide the necessary fee to the above address and we will process your request within 12 days of receipt.

 

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on the above address.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Customer relations.

 

 

 

Am i wrong in thinking that if i make a CCA request and pay the £1.00 WELCOME should provide me with ALL agreements held in my name.

Also there is no mention of the SAR request I sent on the 26th February.

Update:

 

The 40 days are now up on the SAR request so I will be sending a letter before action giving them 7 days to comply with the SAR request.

 

My question is, when do i need to put the account into dispute ?

They are playing games. Write to the address on their letters. You can find the non-compliance template in the library.

 

If you have £80.00 for the application, you may want to seriously consider asking the Court for an order. You will get it. If after they see you have issued the application, they then decide to comply, you can ask for your wasted costs.

 

I did this and got the Order plus £200.00 in damages. I suspect I would have gotten more if I had asked, but 200.00 is what I asked for and what the Court awarded.

 

Don't play their games. This is a recent tactic by the way, they never required this proof of identity before, but now they are getting hit hard and trying every trick they can think of.

Thanks Mr Z,

 

I have written to WELCOME informing them that due to their failure to comply with the SAR request in the alloted time I am now putting the account into dispute until such time that i receive everything that i have asked for.

 

My one question is this, with the account now in dispute, do i continue with the payments as my next one is due next week.

failure to comply with an sar does not place the account in dispute sadly.


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

Placing the account in dispute would be due to their failure to send you the statement of account and a copy of the agreement within the allotted time (12 days +2 for postage) as obliged under the CCA.

 

The course of action regarding the SAR non-compliance would be a complaint to the ICO (useless in my opinion and wont get you far after a long wait) or an application with the Court for an Order (can take a couple of months as well and cost £80.00 which you get back if you win).

 

As for what to do now that you have placed the account in dispute (if the time under the CCA has passed)...You can make a token payment (say £1.00) if you like, to show good faith, or none at all. Also just to note - if you didn't know already, you can make the payments by phone using the automated system and never have to deal with their very pleasant and helpful representatives. :roll:

 

If the time under the CCA has past, but you stated the reason was non compliance with the SAR, just send another letter. I highly doubt they are bright enough to know the difference, but another letter wouldnt hurt to cover yourself. Cost nothing more than postage.

No statement means not yet complied.

Ok. I have had a look at your papers. First things first. I see that someone signed the statement of needs papers, but the agreement shows only the WFS rep's signature. Did you remove it or did you not sign it? I see your first post says you didn't sign a modification agreement, but I just want to be sure.

 

As for the statement: Is this account still live? Was it paid off, sold on? or are you still dealing with WFS regarding payments and arrears etc?

if you did not sign this second agreement at all in anyway shape or form

 

then you should be demanding ALL you payments back + 8% stat int

from the date of each payment made

 

it is FRAUD on behalf of welcome staff

and they are well known for doing this.

Hi,

looking through everything it appears my wife has signed everything as should be,

 

she may not be able to remember signing due to suffering from depression

 

which is the reason she had to finish work

 

( welcome noted at the time that she was off work due to suffering from depression,

 

which can be seen on the uploaded paperwork),

 

i dont know about the original agreement as we can not find that and WeLCOME admit that they dont have a copy either.

 

with regard the statement, that is for the original loan that was paid off with the re-write that is displayed,

I am still waiting for Welcome to send a statement for the active account.

OK, that's clear. On first sight you have some fees you can re-claim. However it might be best to wait until you have the rest of your statements to get the full picture.

 

I wouldn't trust that WFS are working on it. They aren't that efficient. It may be worth sending a letter chasing it.

Hi,

 

I was talking to someone about this and they said i should look into irresponsible lending,

 

as WELCOME were fully aware that my wife was suffering from depression

 

and that she was off work at the time due to depression,

 

Welcome on their eligibility and suitability sheet state that my wife suffers with depression,

 

they also state on their income and expenditure sheet that my wife is off work due to depression,

 

my wife never returned to work and the depression was later diagnosed as rapid cycle bi-polar.

 

Any advise welcome ( no pun intended )
