    • Yes owners of the debt can issue a UK court claim if you reside in the UK, subject to UK court procedures, so can defend the claim.    The bit that confuses people is that the debt was created under UAE law. But when they try to enforce using a UK court, if you defend the claim, they will look at the claim and your defence, ensuring any UK court rules are applied. So if you disputed the debt, the claimant would have to provide evidence to counter your defence argument.    
    • So between 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019, did you have an agreement with the landlord in respect of this address where the water bill is owed ?  If so, did the agreement with landlord say you were responsible for water & sewerage charges ? 
    • Hi guys, Sorry I'm  not quite following. Are you saying there is a chance I could be taken to court? Thanks Lou
    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Can someone help with this

 

Today cash genie took out £170 from my partners bank account for an unpaid loan last year.

 

 

The money was actually mine and was two weeks benefit money that I had asked the dwp put into her account as I do not have one

and they will no longer pay by Giro Cheque.

 

Natwest bank won't act and the loan company will not reply to my E-mails.

 

Where legally do I stand ?.

 

Thank you

Tell your bank to do an immediate chargback for an unauthorised transaction. Ignore the front line phone reps. Speak to a senior manager.

It was not my Bank and even the fraud Department at NatWest were unwilling to help sort it out.

 

 

I am not up to speed on these matters but I deem this transaction as unlawful

 

I did send CG this E-mail but never received a reply.

The transaction was unlawful and unauthorised. Thats why CG took the amount in multiple amounts.

 

You wont get a reply from CG as they took it unlawfully. As i said, your bank is wrong and you need to be firm with them. You wont get £100 per hour either from them as costs/compensation. The most you will get is the current LiP rate, and maybe a few admin costs.

 

Also, how did they get your partners account details for YOUR loan?

Hi

It was not my loan it was not in my name .

 

 

It was a loan my partner took out in 2012.

 

 

I was Unaware of Said loan...

 

 

. It also transpires they (C.G) have been trying to do just this for some time and prompted temporary freezes on my Partners account.

 

Nat West failed to contact my partner to let her know that this was going on ..

... Naughty or Complacent I don't care

 

 

I personally have called NatWest half an hour ago to get the transaction frozen until the morning but Khofi In India is unable to do that.

 

So how much can I charge them bearing in mind I am suffering sever Depression and under the GP for this...:sad:

You can only charge them any loss you have incurred as a result of their actions.

 

 

You cannot make up any figure and then add interest to it.

 

I suspect that they took the money in 3 tranches because they wanted to make sure that the amount they claimed would be paid.

 

 

I note that GM have tried to take money before so I daresay that GM would have asked for a fourth time for their money

 

 

.If they didn't it would leave one to suspect that GM knew how much money was in the account................................

 

In addition, it might be difficult to arrange a cancellation of those transactions because the money was owed by your GF and it was in her account.

I am phoning the DWP tomorrow UK Law states that's the minimum I can be paid to live off also I believe money within a Bank legally belongs to the Bank its in until withdrawn Is this correct?. C.G Have apparently been trying for many months to take money but my partner had stopped the card, She applied for another loan with her new details , Hence CG obtaining them leading to the events that I have outlined

I will update further after I make a few telephone calls tomorrow I am lets say a wee bit naffed off ATM....:-x

 

Thanks for all the advice given thus far I appreciate the help.

sorry that all wrong

 

 

you MUST phone the bank and get a chargeback done on the first transaction

 

 

then ask for the CPA to be cancelle on the others.

 

 

this is the LAW NatWest CANNOT refuse it.

 

 

it was NOT your loan matters not where the money went

they have NO RIGHT TO THIS + 12mts later.

 

 

get action fraud involved too.

 

 

PHONE NATWEST NOW AND DEMAND A CHARGEBACK AND CPA..

The other company are Bonga Loans.... but on investigation Cash Genie have 9 other companies . I may be able to get the monies back according to the FSA it will take 8 weeks or more. NatWest will not discuss it with me I told them I am logging complaints against both them and CG.

If Bonga Loans don't mention on their website that they are part of Cash Genie - report them to the OFT. You should easily be able to see that they are affiliated. These sub companies are usually set up by the main lender in order to trap people who owe them money into applying for a loan with the smaller company so they can then get new bank or card details to recoup the old loan. It's despicable, but then that's the filthy industry of payday loans :(

ask them the direct question..

 

 

were these payments taken under a cpa?

 

 

if they were , THEY MUST refund you

Actually it was fairly easy apart from having to study their own T&C's and threaten to take it further. Once I found out the I had a case from you guys and elsewhere and what course of action to take. It took less than five minutes on the phone.Oh I got interest and expenses back too lol. :-D

Ok

 

Firstly I researched NatWests T&C's that state A CPA can be stopped.

 

Which they failed to inform my partner.

 

I then told them to issue a chargeback as the transaction was unlawful for several reasons as outlined above.

 

I mentioned my displeasure that even though CG had attempted this many times activating Natwests own anti fraud software

nobody had the decency to inform my partner what was going on.

 

And I also let them know I would have gone to the ombudsman and beyond over the issue.
