Correct its A CCA as follows:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

I do not acknowledge ANY debt to your company. I require you to supply the following documentation before I will correspond further on this matter.

 

1. You must supply me with a true copy of the alleged agreement you refer to. This is my right under your obligation to supply a copy of the agreement under the legislation contained within s.78 (1) Consumer Credit Act 1974 (s.77 (1) for rolling sum credit) - your obligation also extends to providing a statement of account. I enclose a £1 postal order in payment of the statutory fee, PO Serial Number*******

 

2. You are notified that you are obliged to supply these documents, whether you are the original creditor or not under S189 of the CCA 1974.

 

3. Non-compliance with my request is a criminal offence under the above Act and will result in a report being submitted to the relevant statutory authorities.

 

4. As you are aware, a credit agreement that is not properly documented and signed by the customer is totally unenforceable under the CCA and therefore is a complete defence to any court claim that is issued.

 

5. Furthermore you are reminded that under s78 sub section (6) whilst the default continues you are not entitled to enforce the agreement in law

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

PS If they don't have a signed agreement then you don't have an account do you

Could someone help me please? Years ago about 5 to be precise we bought some products from 'Currys' now these were taken out on finance, you know the kind, pay back within 6 mths i think it was, if you dont then you pay monthly to GE Capital, this was done at the time with a payment book at the bank/post office. We cannot find any details whatsoever with reagrds to the accounts that we had with them, is the address in leeds the one we would use, could we send them a S.A.R - ( Subject Access Request) for statements, even though we dont know the account, maybe send ID. If anyone could help with we would be very gratefull.

Kathy Lampard

Compliance Department

GE Money Home Lending Ltd

Malvern House

Crawley Business Park

Watford

Kathy Lampard also sent me a pile of statements along with a letter of abreviations, most of which dont apply to the abreviations used on my statements. As she never enclosed contact details including an address on her paperwork, as my initial letter had been redirected from the Redhill office, Surrey. Has anyone else had the same bumph delivered or can they deduce what these abreviations mean listed below.

 

CQA BRN IAD SAF NGC MSS DFC DFUW RIDSAL PRDBATCH ?

 

It all looks very obliging when you first recieve the paperwork but when you get down to calculations, the coding alongside the figures is a puzzle as to whats what.

The amount borrowed in 1995 was £2,010.00 following which, payments of £1241.44 were paid, albeit, intermitantly in the end. Nevertheless in 2001 I paid them off and the amount they were paid was £2111.98 most of which was interest added and charges for late payments. This was a secured loan. Im wondering where I stand, bearing in mind the loan began in 1995 although redeemed within the last six years. Any thoughts?

dax if you as a lay person cannot understand the abreviations (lets face it who outside that company would) then they have not complied with your SAR........as any info sent must be understandable by you. Tell them this & that you will report them to the ICO for none compliance..........they know you wont understand & are just trying to be smart a88se88

You know what Jon, irregardless of their silly letters game ive sat up and worked it out anyway. As I see it, I started this in 2006 and now because of them being silly, its 2007, so because we all know they like to add months to lessen our 6 year period of claiming, I wont give them any more time by writing more letters to stall things.

 

I kept notes of payments so NGC is a payment, DFC and FNL are penalties, so ive just used their terminology for the spreadsheet and they can explain it to the judge if needs be. Either way ive written to them asking for £463 an if it goes to Court it becomes £790.05 with interest so its up to them. If I could claim back the interest charged it would be a lot more, but everyone says 'dont go there'.

 

Whats interesting though is that the exhaustive list of abreviations sent running to 4 pages, have nothing to do with what theyve used on my statements. Perhaps they just like pretending to be all important and its a bit sad really dont you think..

Hi all

Forgive my ignorance. My husband had a finance arrangement for our car with GE Capital Bank. It finished last year. We got into such a terrible mess, due to the fact that they wouldn't move our payment date, so that each month we were charged for late payments. Is this something we can reclaim? I am persuing a claim for bank charges from my bank, but it has only just occurred to me that we could possibly claim from these people too. Thanks to anyone who replies to this.

 

All the best.

If they imposed late payment charges then yes you can claim & don't forget to include interest

 

Also read FAQ's before you start Don't rush in until you have some understanding of the procedure which once you get the hang of it is quite straight forward

I have had store cards in the past who were with GE Capital. I have since paid off the cards and snipped the cards, and I can't remember which stores they were with or account numbers. I do remember extortionate late payment charges though. Is there a way I can get the details in order to claim back, and does anyone know where I could get the information from?

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
