    • Hello All - I've received a letter today from Cabot Financial advising that they are passing on a debt to Global Debt Recovery Ltd as they haven't been able to contact me. I haven't received any letters from Cabot for a couple of years and those letters didn't quote any amount like £7000. I haven't ever contacted Cabot either. My address hasn't changed for over 10 years.   The letter states that the outstanding balance is around £7000 and the Original lender according to this letter is SAV Credit. I don't recognise this debt amount as I've never had a credit card with that sort of credit amount (4000 was my max limit) and I don't recognise 'SAV Credit'. I've checked my credit file and nothing new has been added. I have one CCJ granted in 2015 for £3500 which I assume expires at the end of this year.   On the other side of the same letter Global Debt Recovery are asking me to contact them to arrange a repayment on this debt. My financial problems are from around 2012/2013 and I'm sure I was unable to make any repayments to my debts from around that time so I'm assuming that this would make this debt 'statute barred' anyway. I was made redundant a few years ago and I'm on Universal Credit at the moment and have no way of paying this kind of money. I'm not too keen on just ignoring this type of letter as that has caused me problems in the past.   Would appreciate any advice Thank you           
    • mrabody   No loss, just general damages as per Durkin.   The bank has already paid out £750 for the distress and inconvenience they've caused in taking too long to mark the account as settled and passing the debt onto a DCA. However, they would not accept damage to the credit status from 2014 even after admitting that the account should have had a default status and that the same would have fallen off in 2014.   Ill post their letters when I receive the contents of my DSAR.             
    • forget the texts and emails...irrelevant, dont lambast him too hard about doing the right thing by ignoring them.   as to where you go. yours is not the next move. other than gather/await then digest all the info.   dx

    • 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!

the senior mods may have other ideas but i wouldn't get carried away with good wheezes like that, if i were you. the judge is there to decide on matters of law, not listen to the opinions of people like him, irrespective of how elevated a postion he held. the key thing is that these are penalty charges designed to deter you from breaching the contract and, as such, unlawful.

 

here is what they have to say on their website;

 

Lloyds TSB - Current account charges

 

If you make a mistake

We understand that everyone can make mistakes from time to time. This is why we won’t charge you fees the first day you go overdrawn without agreement, as long as you haven't done so in the previous 12 months.(Whoopee!)

 

the words "without agreement" mean that you are breaching the contract. i think it is an admission that the charges will override the existing agreement if you breach and are specifically to stop you or penalise you if you do. and that is what makes them unlawful as the law regulates this.

 

i only mention this as someone posted a reply from SC&M saying that they weren't penalty charges.

Newacre

LoydsTSB - £4,158.82 inc interest @16%

SARS request - July 06

Prelim letter - 19 Sept

Letter back saying how devastated all the lads at Head Office were to hear... - 31 Oct 06

LBA sent - 8th Nov 06(had to send a 2nd as Royal mail lost it)

Summons reg at CC 15th Dec 06

Nice letter saying that they would be refunding £750, no strings! 18 Dec 06

SC&M acknowledged service and will be defending claim in full - 4 Jan 07

25 Jan 07 transferred to mercantile Court with about 50 others

06 Feb 07 SETTLED IN FULL! - £4466(includes a bit extra interest)

Why do you need to take a radio clip recording to your bank ?

Copying it onto a CD would be better than a DVD. When you download it, it should be a .MP3 extension. Use a program like Windows Media Player or the software you got with your CD Re-Writer. Its hard telling you exactly as each software is different.

  • 6 months later...

Busy with my bundle today. Only have until next Friday to get it in.

 

I've just listened to the discussion with Peter McNamara and read the comments on this thread.

 

My case is against Barclays so wonder if Mr McNamara's comments would be deemed irrelevant.

 

Secondly given a previous poster's comment that it is only an opinion and has no basis in law, is it worth including in my bundle?

 

I don't want to give the bank any ammunition to use against me.

 

Thanks,

 

John.
