I've just received a summary cause summons from Arrow for the sum of £4324.32 for a credit card debt I owe.

 

This debt is not SB and won't be for a while. The summons is legit and I have to answer it.

 

My question is this:

If I took PPI out with the credit card, can I make a counterclaim,

stating that the amount the pursuer is claiming is incorrect because of owed PPI and interest?

If I did, any opinions/advice on how this might go?

 

Or should I just bite the bullet and make an application for a pay over time?

 

Thanks for any advice about this. I'm considering going for a midnight swim in the Atlantic.

Thanks dx.

 

Debt is from a Santander credit card I took out in 2008.

 

 

Payments were on time and up to date until I separated from my wife.

 

 

With my income halved, and other debts, I could not afford the minimum payment.

 

 

I wrote to Santander and explained asking for help, but they weren't interested.

 

 

I defaulted 20/08/11 and only recently (a few months ago) started getting letters from Arrow telling me to pay them the debt or else.

 

Well, or else is now upon me :( Court return date for my reply is Nov 14th.

 

 

I can follow the procedure on the guidance notes in the summons, but I'm scared what will happen to me.

 

 

I am just barely keeping my head above water just now and working all the hours I can.

 

 

I'm not looking for sympathy, it's my own damned fault.

 

Anyway, there it is.

 

It's not Y&K on this one, it's Shoosmiths LLP from Saltire Court in Edinburgh that are acting for Arrow.

if arrows have issued the claim

 

 

the satans bank must have sold it on

 

 

yes PPI/PENALTY charge swill be the reason for that I'm sure

but those I believe are of no use toward the claim.

 

 

can you check you credit file please

I bet arrows are shown as the owner

 

 

did you get notice of assignment from them recently?

checked credit file with noddle yesterday - Arrow Global Ltd are the owners. I did get a letter of assignment from them a while back, but to be honest, I just ignored it.

 

I hate this idea that people can buy a debt for 1/10th it's value and pursue the full amount. Why didn't Santander offer ME the loan for a settlement of 1/10th? i would have begged, borrowed or stolen to get £432 to pay it off.

Re: You have received a Claim - **ISSUED IN SCOTLAND** - What you need to do.

 

 

What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim? Please type out their particulars of claim (verbatim) less any identifiable data and round the amounts up/down.

 

1. The parties are designed in this instance. The named defender resides at (address redacted). The defender has been so resident for more than 3 months immediately preceding the raising of this action. The defender is domiciled there. This court accordingly has jurisdiction. There are no proceedings pending before any other Court involving the present cause of action and between the parties hereto. No agreement exists prorogating jurisdiction to another Court.

 

2. The pursuers are a finance company which inter alia operates the business of debt purchasing. By virtue of a debt purchase agreement between the pursuers and Santander UK plc dated May 2013, the pursuer acquired the right to payment in respect of all debts and other monetary claims of any nature due or owing by the defenders to Santander UK plc which were in existence as at the date the said Agreement was entered into in relation to the contract hereinafter condescended upon. The said assignation was intimated to the defender by way of a written notice on or around the date of assignation.

 

3. The said contract between Santander UK plc and the defender is a regulated credit agreement in terms of Section 189 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. It is dated 4 February 2008, and relates to a credit card agreement with account number (number redacted). The said account is in default and the sum due thereunder is due and payable now. As the date hereof, the sum due in terms of the said agreement amounts to £4,324.32 conform to copy statement of account which will be produced in any defended process to follow hereon. In terms of the debt purchase agreement hereinbefore condescended upon, the right to receive payment of the sum in terms of the said statement of account.

 

4. The defender has been called upon to make payment of the sums sued for. They refuse or at least delay in doing so. This action is accordingly necessary.

 

What type of action? (Small/Summary/Ordinary)

It is a summary cause summons

 

Is the claim for a current or credit/loan account or mobile phone account?

It is for a credit card (not loan)

 

When did you enter into the original agreement before or after 2007?

Feb 2008

 

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.

account has been assigned to Arrow Global Ltd and it is Shoosmiths lawyers on behalf of arrow who have issued the claim.

 

Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?

Yes. I received one, and then approx 5 months later I received another one saying that the date of assignment the first informed me of was incorrect and gave me a new date of assignment.

 

Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor?

Yes

 

Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ?

No

 

Why did you cease payments:-

personal circumstances changed (divorce, job redeployment to a lower paid job, fuel cost increased) and made it impossible to meet the minimum payments.

 

Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved?

no

 

Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan?

I wrote to the original creditor explaining my situation and asking for help. I received no reply.

 

 

 

If you have not already done so – send a CCA1974 request (section 77/78/79 request) to the claimant (unless its anoverdraft/Mobile/Telephone debt)

I sent this off last week recorded delivery.

What's my next step? Should I fill in the court form and say I'm defending, or should I co for a continuance? Or should I wait 12+2 days to see if Arrow return the documents I have asked for?

 

What if they don't send me the documents? Does that mean I can go to court and ask for the case to be dismissed?

 

Thanks for any guidance on this. I'm trying to get things done as quick as I can but I work 60-80 hours a week and finding time is difficult.

Depends on whether I receive the documents I have asked for.

 

 

If they don't send me the documents,

 

 

I believe my defence will be that they have not provided me with the documentation I requested.

 

 

This may not be a defence at all.

 

 

That's why I'm here - I'm asking for advice on whether this should be defended and if so, what could my defence be.

 

 

I'm not as clued up as most on this site.

I have read as many threads on here regarding this subject as I can find, but most of them stop before the conclusion of the cases so I don't know if any were succesful or not.

Yep dx, that's the one that looked most interesting to me. I read it thru the other day and was disappointed to see no resolution.

 

However, this great forum is full of great info and tactics and I'll commit myself to digging thru it all (the search function is extremely handy!)

to try to make myself a defence that will work. I'll certainly keep posting my progress as I go along this road.

 

I was just thinking this morning as I left home for work,

that there is another house in my street (that's the third in 2 weeks)

that are adding extensions or making improvements to their buildings.

 

 

This must surely be a sign that things are getting better financially for people.

...and isn't it now a coincidence that the banks/DCAs are now starting to crawl out from under their rocks to demand payments from people.

 

 

Funny how they were very quiet during the years that they were found out as being unscrupulous, unlawful arrogant Alan B'stards.

 

Aw well, back to life as usual I suppose. We normal people will continue to survive while the bankers light cigars with tenners.

took the card out in 2007 (Feb)

 

It was online

 

I also have a secured loan that was with Picture Finance Ltd>Picture>Target>IDMS (and possibly another company in between...can't remember now)

 

 

I'm in massive arrears on this one and even though I've been paying for 10 years this December,

I still owe as much as I took out. And I've paid over £70,000 back on it :(

 

Apart form that, no other debt, just usual bills.

Today I'm sending a CCA to Shoomiths (the lawyer representing Arrow Global) just in case it should have been thenm I sent it to in the first place.

 

Can anyone let me know when I should sent in an IA to the court? I don't expect Arrow or Shoosmiths to return the documents requested in the CCA, so I guess I'll need more time.

In my opinion a post 2007 online agreement they will get no problems and putting all your hopes on them not having this will crash. - never seen one not produced
