    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??
    • Heard nothing for 6 & half years until last week. A big fat letter from Barclays upholding my PPI claim which had gone to the Ombudsman (news to me) and enclosing all the waffle and finally at the end a cheque for £3659.20 and advising that £454.85 was taxed - this I can reclaim as I don't pay tax currently.

hi

 

 

I have read some threads but I saw something about new law came into effect 6th April - my car is on finance and I use it to drive to Universty ( 56 mile return trip daily) so its to my place of study. Is it true that my car cant be touched or clamped.

 

The answer is not quite as simple as I wish it was.

 

The new regulations have actually provided significant protection for students given that they have provided that goods (including vehicles) are exempt from seizure if used by the debtor ONLY in the course of employment or 'education' (which must include necessary to get too and from university.

 

The second part of the question is not quite so simple. If a vehicle is subject to finance then it is not automatically considered exempt (although in a lot of cases it will be). One of the deciding factors will be the what 'equity' there is in the vehicle. For example, a vehicle could be purchased for £15,000 but subject to just £5,000 of finance ( leaving 'equity' of approx £10,000.

 

Another 'deciding' factor will be the 'type' of finance.

The likelihood is that the car will not be exempt from being taken into control because of its use but will be exempt as ownership is likely to be with the finance company.

 

What kind of finance did you take out (e.g. Hire Purchase) what was the term/price, how much have you paid and what is the value of the car?

Just had a county court official on doorstep who given me a order to attend court for questioning.

I am already paying this debt at £50 a month and I am a full time single parent student - one of the questions I am been asked is

 

 

how did I pay for my Daughter christening last month and can I produce receipts?

 

 

My mother actually paid for most of it and I sold some of my Daughters clothing and equipment to pay towards cake and other expenses.

 

 

Is this not an infringement of my rights.

 

 

This beggars belief.

family member - I have a ccj for £7 k ( Jan 2014) - paid off 4k off it - this family member clearly thinks I have money I am single parent on benefits and now a full time student.

 

 

In September I was called to DWP ( compliance interview) to be informed an email was sent saying I had assets and 30k of savings- I was shown the email and quite clearly it was sent by thus family member - it mentioned court hearing.

 

 

Next thing I get calls from reporters ( she sold her story to magazines and Mirror) I put phone down and say no comment.

 

 

Last night at 9 pm a court official I believe - calls and hands me N39 - to attend court to ask how I paid for My Daughter christening last month. This is surely a breach of my human rights and was a religion occasion attended by close family with carvery afterwards.

 

 

I am now thinking Birthdays and Christmas for My Daughter will be called to court all the time and I am questioned over this.

 

 

I have paid a considerable amount of this debt and paying a fixed monthly amount which is more than court suggested.

 

 

 

 

What can I do????

Hi, has the DWP accepted that you have no such savings?

 

 

What is "the story" being told by the family member?

 

 

If the "story" untrue and therefore libellous, you have cause of action in regard to the family member and the publisher (s) of the "story".

 

 

You will need qualified legal advice to proceed with this I think.
