Hi All,

 

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section or has been answered elsewhere.

 

I am dealing with Hillesden/dlc and am going to send a CCA request for the original credit card agreement.

 

I have read a lot on here regarding the CCA request and what they must supply but

 

my question is this:

 

The credit card agreement, with Citi, was taken out in 2001,

so do they have to send a copy of the original signed agreement,

or can they just send a true copy of what the agreement was back then,

without my signature.

 

I understand that a lot of agreements prior to 2007 were inaccurate or didn't comply with certain guidelines?

 

Many thanks for your help, and sorry again if posted in the wrong place!

Hi,

 

As it is pre-2007, Hillsdens/DLC have to send you a complete copy of your credit agreement, the correct terms and conditions which you were also given at the time, the correct calculated rate of APR etc.

 

If taken out online, full copy of a ticked box/written name in-place of your signature as well as the above.

 

When you receive anything back, please scan in, remove all personal information including agreement numbers and barcodes and post up.

NEVER telephone a DCA

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

Thanks Stigman, much appreciated. It wouldn't have been an online application I wouldn't have thought, seeing as it was 2001 and am going to have a dig through the paperwork I have here to see if I still hold a copy.

 

Will post up once I get a reply from Hillesden.

They could send you a 'reconstructed' agreement and this would comply with your request. BUT to enforce it via the courts, they would need the original agreement.

I've moved your thread to the citi forum

 

if you read a few threads here

 

you'll see that them getting the CCA

 

is pretty much 0%.

I hope you are not paying anyone for this 'debt'

Well the slightly shortened version of the story is this.

 

Just before Xmas I received a letter from dlc, offering a discounted repayment on a debt that was supposedly with a company called 'Associates'.

 

Until then I had received no other letters from dlc, so was a little confused.

 

In this letter they had also stated that if I didn't contact them within 14 days they would send a doorstep adviser round.

 

I responded by asking for further clarification as to who the original creditor was, as Associates didn't ring true

and also advised them, that I was unwilling to meet with any doorstep advisers,

that if they attended to visit my property, then they would have to make an appointment,

and that I would not be making an appointment of any kind.

 

The response to my reply, which came yesterday, was rather stroppy to say the least.

 

They are saying that I am the debtor,

they have proof that they have corresponded with the correct person (although what this is they won't say),

that the original debt was with Financial, for a credit card ,which was taken out in 2001,

that I must complete the income/expenditure form and return to them

and that I am incorrect in saying that they will have to make an appointment to visit me at home,

 

that all they have to do is give reasonable notice of the visit( surely this is the same thing?),

 

should this form not be completed and a payment schedule made.

 

The account was passed to them in 2007 and they claim that payments were made by me in 2011.

 

I have checked my bank statement, and there were no payments made to them, from me, in March 2011.

 

I am going to complete a CCA request, as I am not entirely sure that this is my debt.

 

But if, as some have suggested, they don't have to send a signed copy,

 

how can they prove it is or prove it isn't?

 

Many thanks, to all of you that have replied so far!

discount = bad lemon debt.

 

ideally you should have not responded to the doorstepper or any letter

 

you've done what they wanted you to do - react to their phishing letters

 

and spoofed you into contacting them.

 

just remember that a DCA or their fake/tame solicitor ARE NOT BAILIFFS

 

and nave NO SUCH BAILIFF POWERS.

 

you need to now put them to STRICT PROOF

 

as to:

 

who

when

by what method

and

where

 

those payments were made.

Thanks dx, will be on it this week. Am going to start with a CCA request and see what comes back, if anything. After reading a lot of posts on here, seems that whenever this is requested they go a bit quiet, funny that. Will also be asking for proof of when payments were made, who or by what means it was paid etc and see what they say. As i online bank, I can go back through years of statements, not that they know that is the case, and at least I have proof that no payment was made from my account.

 

I am assuming that while all of this is going back and forth, they have to cease any collection activity as the debt is clearly in dispute?

 

Should have just ignored them really, seems a lot of other people have had a pretty lousy experience with these people over the years. Oh and in answer to your question, seems it's just Citi they are representing, if you can call it that.

Also as far as threatening a door step visit they can't, they can not force you to talk to them just tell the politely to fog off, if you can record them with your mobile phone camera and keep it till needed, that's if they turn up, then if they get moody on you just call the police, same goes if they refuse to leave your property.
