    • Ahh, discussion thread. Thank whoever. Forgotten what the points were  now, I will read and get back later.
    • I have completed answers as noted above.   Name of the Claimant ?  IDEM Capital Securities Limited Date of issue – 12 Nov 2019   What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim? a)      A credit card agreement made between MBNA Europe Bank Limited and the cardholder b)     Claimant purchased the balance on the account on xx/2016 c)      Cardholder accrued balance £5500 d)     Cardholder defaulted on payments e)      Claimant issued formal demand requesting payment on xx/2019 f)       Amount now due £ 5500 Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ?  Yes Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred? No Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? n/a What is the total value of the claim? £6000 (now including fees) Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?  Credit Card Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? By post When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? July 1995 Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? Yes 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.  Debt Purchaser Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?  Yes Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor?  Yes -though I am unable to find a copy Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ?  Unsure Why did you cease payments? Advised to as there was no enforceable CCA What was the date of your last payment? Feb 2019 Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved?  Unsure Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan?  Originally informed MBNA that we were in difficulty and arranged a payment plan with them, they later sold the debt to Britannia Sarl (?) and we continued with the same payments, this was then sold to Moorcroft and we again continued the same payments. At some point later we contacted Moorcroft to advise our circumstances had changed and we offered a lower payment.  We were asked for income and expenses which we didn’t provide as we had contacted a debt help organisation who helped us work out what we could afford, however we did receive a letter on another debt at the same time accepting a lower payment (the circumstances were exactly the same – MBNA debt, sold to Britannia, sold onto Moorcroft) We continued with the lower payments.  In the last year we discovered that all our other debts were no longer showing on our credit files but this one was showing as continual defaults month on month. We contacted IDEM to ask why and they said the previous DCA hadn’t agreed to the lower payment and therefore we were continuing to default. At this point I sought advice from CAG and they advised me to ask for the CCA. I received a photocopy of the original application form and a page of Terms and Conditions that I was advised by CAG were not a CCA and I should stop paying.   I further received a pre-action protocol which I completed and returned and in response I received a notice of assignment, account statement and default notice  as I had requested, but they ignored the fact that I said they had provided an unenforceable CCA.

Slightly complex claim here. I topped up an Egg loan at the beginning of 2007. The total cash amount of the loan was £9331 and the payment protection premium lent was £1730.85 with the total amounts payable at £10668.00 and £1979.04 respectively.

 

I subsequently defaulted on the loan and it was sold to various debt collection companies, ending up most recently with Arrow Global. They stated that the purchase balance of the account was £8193.79, down from the £11061.85 advanced by Egg.

 

Added to the complications, I now live in the USA. Restons for Arrow Global obtained a CCJ by default judgment against me and I applied to have it set aside once I found out about it. I ended up deciding to settle with them and we eventually agreed on £3000.00 in full and final settlement of the account.

 

So I have effectively repaid £5868.06 of the debt, plus whatever interest that I'm unable to calculate.

 

In the meantime, over a year ago I was sent a letter by Canada Square Operations asking me to complete a complaint questionnaire, as I belong to group of customers who MAY have been affected by a PPI policy being mis-sold. I never sent it as at the time I still owed the debt. The letter they sent noted that the debt had be sold on to another company and asked permission to contact them to find out the status of the debt.

 

Since I have now settled the debt I filled out the questionnaire and sent it off. I'm wondering what I can expect given the circumstances surrounding my case. I'm also wondering if they will respond to me at my US address?

Hi

 

As the account has been sold on then Egg will have no right of set off so any PPI redress should be paid to you.

 

I don't see any reason why they should not correspond with you overseas although you may have to send them evidence of your new address.

I think I've made a mistake.

 

I live in the US and have a CCJ for £1182 which has been secured with a charging order

against an interest in a property I own in the UK which was for an Egg credit card.

 

I submitted a claim for mis-sold PPI to Canada Square Operations for an Egg loan I also had.

They wrote back to me today saying that they've upheld my complaint and are offering £4589.25 before tax on the 8% interest.

 

Then I read this part:

 

As your account is still open, your account will be credited with £940.91 within 20 working days of our receipt of your acceptance form,

to put your loan in the position it would have been in had you not taken PPI.

 

My credit report shows the Egg credit card as 'satisfied' with the date satisfied listed as 5/05/2008.

The debt eventually ended up with Sigma Red Limited, who secured the charging order against my property.

 

In other words, the debt was sold on and Egg don't own it anymore.

My credit report says the default balance was £807.

Sigma Red are reporting the balance as £1436.

CSO as I said are setting off £940.91.

 

I gather they have no basis to do this, as the account is not still open as they said, and hasn't been for a long time.

There's one big problem. I just signed the acceptance form and posted it.

 

It'll take the letter a while to make it to them, perhaps I could send something by express to beat the letter I sent via standard mail?

 

Otherwise if they apply the funds to their 'open' account,

what happens with respect to the debt currently with Sigma Red?

Wish I'd not raced out to mail that acceptance back tonight.

I will try them on Monday then.

 

I was just thinking - if I managed to quickly agree a full and final settlement with Sigma Red,

before Canada Square pay up,

they wouldn't then be able to set off the money would they,

if the debt was settled?

This satisfied/settled note - is it on your credit file ?

 

This is usually means that the account has been sold on

- it is only settled/satisfied with the original creditor because they have received payment from the new owner.

 

IMHO, this is quite confusing for those reading their files as many assume that the account has indeed been cleared.

 

You might also want to establilsh why there is such a discrepancy in the figures that are being reported.

I assume the figures vary due to interest and charges? Either way I still want to know if I've completely fudged it by signing the acceptance or if there's anything I can try to do?

Yes, definitely send an e-mail immediately to the creditor and state therein that this communication of 26 July 2014 supersedes my letter dated __________(state the date) and all material served therewith is extinguished hereby.

Tell them in your e-mail, that the law requires them to place you in the position that you would have been in had they not mis-sold the ppi to you and that they have no legal right under the laws of England and Wales to place the loan back in the position that the loan would have been in had they not mis-sold the ppi thereon to you.

The law of restitution requires that you are compensated by being placed in the position you would have been in at the start of the loan and not the loan!!

They are taking the p*ss with their contention to put the loan back to its original position!

Kind regards

The Mould

I'm going to attempt to intercept the postman when he picks up from the postbox and see if I can persuade him to give me my letter back.

 

They don't even own the debt any more so where would the funds go?

 

To the agency that owns the debt now?

 

I want to resolve the debt but I was going to go about it a different way,

 

try to have the CCJ set aside and settle with them if I had to.

 

It seems this way they'll pay the £940 but I'll still owe all the extra in charges and fees.

I thought you said they WERE going to offset to the debt buyer...

 

so what actually did the letter say?

The letter says what I posted originally:

 

As your account is still open, your account will be credited with £940.91 within 20 working days of our receipt of your acceptance form,

to put your loan in the position it would have been in had you not taken PPI.

 

From that, it doesn't seem too clear to me. My account (with them) is not still open. They sold it on years ago.

The part I signed and returned included this line:

 

I accept your offer of redress of £4589.25 as stated in the final response letter as full and final settlement of this complaint.

 

I understand that £1266.26 of the offer of redress above has been awarded as compensatory interest and £253.25 of that will be withheld for tax purposes and paid directly to HM Revenue & Customs.

 

I understand that the account will be adjusted by £940.91

 

I request that the money due to be is paid in the following form:

 

A cheque payable to Rangers123 for £3395.09

This is what I sent:

 

Dear Ian Clark,

 

Re: My Egg Loan accounts 123, 456 & 789

 

This communication of 28 July 2014 supersedes my letter dated 25 July 2014 and all material served therewith is extinguished hereby.

 

I write with reference to your final response to my complaint (your ref: EGG/xxx) to which your investigation concluded that my complaint had been upheld and that consequently you would be refunding all premiums applied to my accounts together with contractual interest and compensatory interest in the total amount of £4589.25.

 

However, your letter incorrect states that my account is still open and £940.91 would be credited to it. Upon checking my credit report, I note that the status of my account with Egg is listed as ‘Settled’ with the ‘Date Satisfied’ listed as 15/05/2008. I therefore conclude that I have no open accounts with your company and therefore you have no right of set off so all PPI redress should be paid to me. The law requires you to place me in the position that I would have been in had you not mis-sold the PPI to me and you have no legal right under the laws of England and Wales to place the loan back in the position that the loan would have been in had you not mis-sold the PPI to me.

I posted before how my complaint to Canada Square Operations had been successful and they awarded me £4589.25.

 

They want to set off £940.91 to Arrow Global for a debt they sold them.

 

Incidentally, the letter they sent said they sold it to Arrow in May 2005 which isn't true,

that account wasn't even originally opened with Egg until 2006.

 

I have settled the debt with Arrow Global and had the CCJ successfully set aside.

Canada Square won't seem to budge on this.

 

Here's the latest letter they sent me:

 

Thank you for your recent correspondence.

I can confirm the adjustment amount is not being paid into an account open with Canada Square Operations.

 

The adjustment is being paid into your open account with Arrow Global Receivables Management Limited (Arrow).

 

Arrow took charge of the account in May 2005,

the information we received from them on 3 July 2014 indicated the account was still open and had an outstanding balance.

 

Consequently, your account will be credited with £940.91 within 20 working days of our receipt of your signed acceptance form

(and valid address change proof), to put your loan in the position it would have been in had you not taken PPI.

 

This is in line with Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) guidelines.

 

As a result of the adjustment mentioned above your monthly contractual repayments may change.

 

Arrow Global Receivables Management Limited will be writing to you shortly after the above adjustment has been completed to confirm

any changes to your monthly repayments.

 

Please accept our apologies for any confusion caused regarding the direction of the adjustment funds.

 

 

What can I do or say?

 

I have a letter from Arrow Global stating that this debt is settled.

Borrowing from old threads I pieced together the following email:

 

Dear Ian Clark,

 

Re: My Egg Loan accounts xyz

 

I received your recent correspondence (your ref: xyz) dated 11 August 2014 in which you state that you will pay a third party, Arrow Global Receivables Management Limited (Arrow), £940.91 of my total redress of £4589.25.

 

 

I do not agree with you 'adjusting' any part of my claim to Arrow or any other third party. Canada Square Operations no longer own the alleged debt and have no right to withhold monies in respect of it. Incidentally the alleged debt with Arrow has recently been settled to conclude the account with them, however if Arrow wished to pursue me for any amount they allege I owe them, then that is their prerogative, and between me and them, not the business of Canada Square Operations.

 

The authority for my views is the case of Edlington Properties v. Fenner & Co. Ltd [2005] EWHC 2158 (QB) which affirms this position that the assignor has no right of set-off to a third party (assignee) for a damages claim brought against it post-assignment, as any equitable set-off in this regard is personal in nature and the debt sold is not transferred subject to it.

 

Further information on the right of setoff can be found on the Financial Ombudsman's website which clarifies in layman's terms the rights of banks to take the action you indicated in your settlement: banking: firms' right of 'set off’. The information I’ve referred to can be found here:

 

http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/publications/ombudsman-news/40/40_setoff.htm

 

Accordingly, unless you reconsider and agree to repay the full amount to me direct, you leave me with no option but to commence court action against you for the full amount claimed plus costs.

 

Yours sincerely,

So,

just shy of 3 weeks since I sent my last email to crt.pleaseassist and I've heard nothing back.

 

 

What is the court process?

 

 

Do I do the online money claim?

 

 

Can I use that service from the US?

 

 

It hasn't stopped other companies using it against me in the US in the past,

 

 

and the courts didn't care that I wasn't in the country

 

 

either when the boot was on the other foot.

Moderators, I know I have posted about this complaint when I was making it, but I believe this is a new issue now that I really need help with, and would appreciate if it was allowed to remain a separate thread.

 

To put it simply, Canada Square Operations upheld my complaint and awarded me £4589.25. They want to set off £940.91 to Arrow Global Receivables Management Limited, who they sold the debt to years ago.

 

I've written to them twice now, the first letter almost 2 months ago, with the text advised on here stating that they have no right of set off. I have not received any reply at all since then, except to say who they were setting off the money to and that they indicated the account was still open and had an outstanding balance (it isn't, I settled in full with them).

 

I just phoned the Financial Ombudsman helpline who wasn't sure, and said they'd call me back. They also said I needed to wait at least 2 months before they could do anything.

 

Caggers, what's my next step? I'm completely lost.
