Told that Natwest had advised me that the account had been transferred. (untrue)

25/04/14 NatWest - Letter saying personal information out of date. On their template they say they need a copy of my signature.

Sent copy of council tax bill and a previous letter they sent to me at this address.

06/04/14 complaint lodged with FOS for non compliance of CCA request.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

Closing Balance - £3333.18

 

From statements and default notices I already have without the SAR

 

Charges Levied £796.00

With Restitution interest applied @ 24.90% Claim = 3220.17

 

ADD interest payment applied after default notice and after they were told of financial problems of 70.30

 

Total work in progress = £3301.83

------------------------------------------------------------

 

On this one I am tempted to go the court route without going to the FOS in regards to credit card charges.

Aim would be to get the amount wiped plus costs incurred in doing so along with default markers removed etc (Am currently unemployed)

 

I might have jumped the gun a bit with the complaints to IC and FOS regarding the SAR fail and fail to comply with CCA but we shall see.

 

Other thing I noticed is that Natwest repeatedly altered my T+Cs such as the cash advance percentage

and also the main purchase percentage interest rates.

 

There was no forewarning on any of the statements I have preceding the rate jacking.

 

In fact I never noticed until going through my statements.

 

Despite having 80-90% of all paperwork im not seeing any seperate letters advising of a change in T+C's

 

Im sure they have to give notice under the terms of Consumer Credit Act and draw your attention to your right to discontinue

the agreement and pay off the balance at the preceding interest rate.

 

If they failed to do this,

do I have further options there?

 

As in force them to return the interest charged above any original interest rate

until they complied with notice of variation of terms and conditions.

 

Hmm maybe I should redo the SAR and make it more general and include a CCA request.

 

Thoughts?

Today (7/5/14) Received a delivery from a Courier. Cover letter from Natwest with an apology for the previous More information request that was sent in error"

 

Also contained ALL my statements from 2001! AND a copy of an application form for the credit card. My SAR to Natwest was a targeted one in regards to transactions lists and charges so as far as I see they have finally complied.

 

What I did notice was the application form has "Moisten Along this gummed edge to seal (please do not use adhesive tape or staples) on the top and left hand side. This is helpful as it shows it was a MAIL SHOT :)

 

Now I could go on and do a CCA request and a further SAR for everything else. (I should of done this to start with but hindsight is wonderful) but Moorcroft were "allegedly" acting on their behalf and have breached my CCA request.

 

Do i leave the CCA trail as is or do I start the CCA and a full SAR with NatWest?

 

In meantime I have my Preclim Letter to write :)

Hi Sabre,

 

Looking in as asked ............

 

A word of caution - my experience of credit card penalty reclaims has been almost exclusively with BC a/c's. I've helped folk in the BC forum reclaim tens of £000's where they use a nominal compound int't rate of 24.9%, arguing Sempra Metals v Inland Revenue Commissioners re restitutionary int't and Kleinwort Benson v Lincoln City Council re Limitation Act 1980.

 

Barclays Litigation generally pay up when faced with a court date but other banks do not necessarily do the same.

 

So you need to research and see how other CAGgers have faired in seeking restitutionary compound interest before taking this course of action.

A CCA request I suspect will produce a further copy of the "dual purposes" application for/ credit agreement. I have an account from around 2000/2001 period and this was standard procedure then, when the card was issued a full terms and conditions " booklet" was provided together with an "executed" copy of the app/agreement postal document.

Regardless, the PTs have to be present at time of signing. If the 1st time you see them is with card, then this is not correct under CCA 1974.

If you had researched your response you would gave found that many of these "postal/ promotional applications took this form in the late 90s early 2000s the card was supplied the full Ts & Cs were supplied with it one could then decide to accept or decline the offer of the credit facility.

 

 

I have such an account and all the documents to go with it.

I've noticed when any one questions your comments you become quite aggressive. This helps nobody. If a consumer hasn't signed a document containing the prescribed terms, then it isn't executed properly. I suggest you carry out a little research yourself. Of course, if the PTs came with the card within a certain time period, and the consumer subsequently signed, that would be a different matter.

If you wish to talk in circles go ahead, but I am pleased to see that you do indeed agree with me that Ts & Cs would be sent with the card when back 15 or so years ago and the applicant could accept or decline the offer of the credit facility!!

So your saying that for a pre 2007 agreement the PTs do not need to be present at the time of of signing as the banks usual procedures took presidence over statutes. I must have misunderstood all my law lectures.

 

If the application did not contain the PTs and the PTs only came with the card, the agreement was not fully executed. To be 1974 CCA compliant, the consumer would have to sign another agreement, this time with the PTs present, for the agreement to be compliant. This is where many banks got it wrong. Many moons ago, I filled a very simple application form in, no PTs at all. The card came with instructions of use etc and only generic TCs and nothing to sign and return.

This was very much the problem with many of the postal application often "4 corners " requirement was not met.

All my posts were as a result of your post no #6 therefore completely relevant.

 

In any case, constructive discussions can help posters make their own informed decisions. However if this is not what CAG is for, iv misunderstood its purpose. Thanks anyway for admitting I was right.

 

SabreSheep, good look with this.

Brigadier + goodatreserch thank you both for your input. Please put down the foam hammers now and revert to water pistols, Summer is coming :D

 

Ok it is slightly immaterial now as I have submitted my Preclim Letter for the bank charges with *Interest of Restitution claimed as well"

 

A few days ago I did send a Proper CCA request directly to natwest seeing as the application form copy came with my SAR. Im just interested on what will come up :) Moorcroft should already have requested this but the timescales have expired and Moorcroft has been sent the out of time in dispute and section 10 notice. They have not even managed a deed of simple assignment. SO they have no authority to collect on behalf of Natwest on this account it seems.

Correct Brigadier, no notice naming Moorcroft ever received.

Moorcroft would never give me any copies of notice and kept saying to contact Natwest. They refused CCA three times as well so have earned an account in dispute letter and section 10 DPA notice.

 

Seeing as I have never been told by Natwest that Moorcroft have been contracted to act on their behalf Ive treated them as chancers.

 

As for my smaller HSBC credit card, HSBC advised me they had contracted Moorcroft to act as agents. As HSBC had accepted £1 a month for my OD Moorcroft were left with no option but to accept £1 a month :)

In that NatWest /Moorcroft situation you can simply state you have no knowledge of any " authority" from NatWest for it to be contacting you and that you will not enter into any discussion with them.

Thanks Brig.

Originally that was my first responce. They said I needed to contact natwest. then I just CCAd them and failed to comply CCA letter and section 10 DPA notice. I dont intend to issue any more corespondance except for one last one.

 

Along the lines of

 

The account is now in dispute with Natwest that could potentially result in the balance being reduced to zero. Please discontinue corespondance as this account already in dispute due to your failure to carry out your obligations is now in further Serious dispute. But untill that point comes they Moorcorft can eat my silence ;)

 

*update*

 

12/05/14 Letter received from ICO dated 09/05/14, acknowledging my complaint and issuing case number. Told to contact them if they do not provide suitable response to my sar request. (As before Natwest have now complied and apologized. Will email the ICO and inform them that in that instance the complaint about failed SAR is closed)
