    • I have now written up the Claim and will post this, we have also been informed by the DJ they will counter-sue for the full amount if we take them to Court for the £500 we are at a loss? We we have also included interest from the date they refused the Money in May as we are having to borrow to fund the wedding in three weeks, its so disheartening as we also have to pay £415 to put the claim in when they could have just resolved this matter!   Are they not bothered about customers at all, they are prepared to keep money without providing any service at all   Its so shameful
    • I'm afraid lapse of time has got nothing to do with it in this case. At the very minimum, though there is is six years within which to recover a debt – and when the money is paid by way of a mistake, it is six years from the date that the mistake was discovered or could reasonably have been discovered. I understand that your vehicle was damaged in an accident and the repair bill was paid by the insurer. Somehow or other, you were also paid about £2000 ostensibly to pay the garage for the repairs. As the car was already repaired, you didn't pay the money over or query it – but you used the money. I'm afraid that if that is a correct summary of what has happened then I would say that you are obliged to repay the money. If my understanding is correct – then you had probably better contact the solicitors and start dealing with them because I'm sure that they will have no hesitation issuing a claim against you and you will then be liable for the money, plus interest at 8% – plus a measure of costs – if the judgement sum is not paid 30 days of the date of judgement.  
    • Here is the latest draft defence aligned to each item from the POC. I have incorporated PAP detail into Item 4 of the defence in italics. Do I add the detail of CCA into Defence Item 5? Your comments, advice and suggested amendments are welcome.   1. The Claimant ('C') claims the whole of the outstanding balance due and payable under an agreement referenced “ref number” and opened effective from 27/08/2016. The agreement is regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, was signed by the Defendant ('D') and from which credit was extended to the Defendant.   Defence 1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of the claim are vague and generic in nature. 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.  The Defendant failed to comply with a default notice served pursuant to s87, . CCA and by 05/08/2019  a default was recorded. Defence 2. Paragraph 1 is denied. I cannot recall any dealing with HSBC in the past, I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.   3.  As at 18/09/2019 the Defendant owed “Bank of SCOTLAND” the sum of 3897281. Defence 3. Paragraph 3 is denied. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.   4. By an agreement in writing the benefit of the debt has been legally assigned to the Claimant effective 18/09/2019 and made regular upon the Claimant serving a Notice of Assignment the Defendant shortly thereafter. Defence 4. Paragraph 5 is denied and I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor or Legal Assignment the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) and Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.    5. And the Claimant claims: 1. 397281;  2. Interest pursuant to Section 69 County Court Act (1984) at a rate of 8 % per Annum from 18/09/2019 to 25/08/2020 of 26171 And thereafter at a daily rate of 82 to date of judgment or sooner payment. Date 28/08/2010 Defence 5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Link Financial & Kearns Solicitors by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via Royal Mail delivery on 28 August 2020. To date, neither Link Financial or Kearns Solicitors are yet to furnish me with the requested information.   7.Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:- 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.   9. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   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.
    • Hi   I am not really sure where to post this , hopefully it’s appropriate here    At the end of 2017 my partner was involved in a rtc when a car pulled round a bus and hit my car that my partner was driving.   on the advice of family I instructed a car accident management company to deal with the repairs/make necessary arrangements.  The car was fixed and the accident management company paid us a couple of thousand pounds to pay the garage .  The bill never came from the garage and we were told that it had been settled by the insurance company.    when I sold the car a few months ago I struggled to sell to the garage as it was registered by my insurance as a write off.  I was offered significantly less for it because of this.    today I received a letter from a solicitors instructed by my insurance company to recover the money they paid for the repairs back in 2017.    I guess logically/morally my car was fixed and the money from the accident company is extra- although the car was marked by my insurance  as written off yet fixed!   do I need to pay them the sum they are asking or due to the time elapsed etc do I not.  The letter has made me so worried as threats of court action /costs    Thank you

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi all,

 

Back in 2007, before I discovered CAG,

Brian Carter obtained a CCJ against me for a few hundred quid (out of more than £6000).

 

Once I discovered that split claims are not lawful,

I decided it was a good deal, and as I never want credit ever again,

I couldn't care less about a CCJ.

 

Because I am on disability benefits Carter accepted a £2 per month payment

and I've been paying ever since by direct debit.

 

I has a couple of letters from Arrow Global saying that Fredericksons were no longer dealing with it

(which is the first I knew that they were dealing with it).

 

Today I have had this missive:

 

Letter-Jul13-Edited_zpse366fdcb.jpg

 

I have no idea how to respond, or even whether to respond at all.

 

The "payment plan" they refer to is a CCJ which has damn all to do with Wetcloths

.I'd be eternally grateful for any guidance on how best to proceed.

 

BTW, now that 6 years are up on the CCJ, am I obliged to continue with the installments?

I had assumed that I would just continue until 16 years was up, or I die, whichever is sooner, but I'm starting to wonder now.

You are obliged to continue the payments as any limitation is from the time your last payment was made.

 

However, these bandits cant ask for more money as it is subject to a court order

and they know it so they are hoping you will fall for their letter

and agree to giving them a million pounds a week to pay for the "extras" they have unlawfully added to your account.

 

Leave the DD alone but keep an eye on it in case it suddenly changes in amount.

 

Write to them telling them that you have not been notified by the original debtor

that your debt has been sold on so you will continue as it is

and to stop any other action as it is unlawful.

I have asked andyorch to look in on you, but eric's brother is correct - your adherence is to the judgment order and not Wescott. So if the order says you pay £2.00 a month, then that is what you pay.

 

I think you might need to respond to Westclot and advise that this is a Judgment order you are repaying and you will maintain the payments as ordered by the court.

Thanks guys. I'll sent Wetcloths a letter telling them to *&%$ off. I might just report B. Carter to the SRA as well while I'm at it, not that I suppose it will do any good :rolleyes:

  • 4 months later...

I need to resurrect this one, unfortunately.

 

 

I never did hear anything back from the letter that was sent to Wetcloths,

and it went quiet after that.

 

 

Today I have received a NoA from Arrow Global to say that it has been assigned to Restons Solicitors.

 

 

I hear they are nasty,

so I want to head things off if I can.

 

 

I propose sending Both Carter and Restons a letter stating that this is subject to an existing CCJ

that I am still paying,

and to sort it out with each other.

 

 

Does that sound like a good plan?

 

I'd be grateful if anyone has any further advice.

That's exactly what you must do if any party wants to change the terms of the judgement order they must apply to the court.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

this is what happens with a split claim.

 

 

wetcloths are carter are lowells are freds now.

 

 

all the same.

 

 

so that's the CCJ bit

 

 

arrows sound like they bought the other bit of the debt.

 

 

pers I'd not send 'the' statute barred letter

 

 

but a letter indicating its statute barred

 

 

let them find out when you last paid on the old account

 

 

rather than carter litigation fees split claim only.

 

 

 

 

 

 

they wont know and shouldn't be told of the existing CCJ surely?

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

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

I suspect that they don't know about the existing CCJ,

but I think they are under the impression that I have been paying off the £2 per month as a voluntary arrangement.

 

 

I did tell Wetcloths about the CCJ,

though they probably just filed my letter in the waste paper bin.

 

 

I'm sure if I try and say it's stat barred, they'll then say it isn't because of the monthly payments.

 

It did occur to me though that the rest of the amount must be stat barred,

even if it could be lawfully split

- it's well over 10 years since the last payment, apart from the CCJ.

£6000 odd. Carter wanted about £350 for his part. So when I found out it was unlawful to chase the rest, I considered it quite a result at the time. I couldn't care less about the CCJ, I never want credit again, and I'm too disabled to work again, so it hasn't affected me in any way.

As posted above, because you have a Direct Debit in place, this can easily be adjusted by both date and amount.

It might be best to switch to paying by Standing Order so you never have to worry of anything like your account be emptied.

 

The Court CCJ paperwork says who to pay, it does not say which method of payment to make.

 

Get the Bank Account Details of Carters/Freds and continue to pay them at £2 per month as you can easily set date, amount, reference numbers etc.

 

Unless you have been instructed by a variation in the CCJ, continue to pay Carters/Freds as you have been doing.

 

Stigman

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!
