    • Thanks! I've had several successes in the past 4 years or so which stemmed from a financially difficult part of my life around 2011/13. Basically I was financially trapped with Quick Quid, in a cycle of increased borrowing, during this I'd opened three catalogue accounts: Studio, JD Williams and Simply Be , 2 credit cards (Aqua and Barclays) and was juggling finances. In that time I had got 2 CCJs plus 2 defaults so things were pretty tight. I was using most of my available credit until things eventually became unsustainable. When I moved house I used the deposit to pay off Quick Quid and got into arrangements to repay the catalogues. The credit card limit was still rising until 2017 when I borrowed the balance of nearly £6000 from a family member and cleared the Aqua card. The Barclaycard had already defaulted. In 2017 I began action for irresponsible lending against Quick Quid. Basically they could not show the criteria they used to make lending decisions  and kept lending to me so I won the case. I was refunded all interest and fees  and charges plus 8% pa. When it was upheld it gave me the confidence to challenge JDW and SB. These were also upheld and they had to repay interest, fees and charges plus 8% from the second credit limit increase which amounted to about £1200 each. I challenged Aqua where my redress covering 6 years fees, interest and charges accrued to nearly £9000.  Barclaycard was not upheld but the default was moved back to an earlier date meaning it expires sooner.  All my IRL cases succeeded because none of these companies could prove that they had diligently checked my financial history. My credit report clearly showed that I was using a high or at limit proportion of available credit and that I'd accrued two unconnected CCJ's and 2 defaults throughout the lives of these accounts. Whether they should have given me the accounts in the first place was also brought into question but it was the sustained but gradual increase of CL's time and time again without proper checks. JDW were unable or unwilling to show the ombudsman what criteria they used. It only appeared that because I paid on time they continued to offer increases where in reality I was actually juggling finances like a fine balancing act.  It would appear that the FOS are looking at catalogue debt as I know when my cases against JDW and SB were being investigated they mentioned this.  My case against Studio should conclude soon. I was curious as to why now Cabot are trying to cut their losses by offering such a hefty discount. I can only summise that Studio are trying to buy back the debt for less.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi all,

 

 

I'm new to posting on this forum so please be gentle with me if all this has been done before. I've spent the last few days reading various threads on this issue but my head's now spinning!!

 

 

Any help, advise or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Back in October 2009 when I was in a financial black hole, I foolishly sold an MBNA CC Debt to Credit Card Killer/Momentum Networks. (That's a story in itself)

 

 

Since then I've had the expected phone calls, letters, defaults, assignments to DCA which have been on-going, most of which I have ignored.

 

 

Last Thursday 16th Oct I received a Count Court Claim from Aktiv Kapital for the outstanding balance.

 

 

Over the weekend I sent the AOS stating I intend to defend the claim.

 

 

Is it a futile exercise to use "I've sold my debt" as a defence?

 

 

All reply's will be thankfully received.

I don't believe it, I really don't;

Not Basil and Amanda Rankine again;

CCK & Matrix!

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?206480-Rankine-in-the-Court-of-Appeal/page2

 

There are many threads running on the web about these two and how they screwed vulnerable consumers...

 

So, now the debt vultures are picking at the old CCK etc scraps; disgraceful.

Turning back to your original question.

You need to request full disclosure of ALL documents that their case relies upon!

 

I am yet to see an MBNA pre 2006 credit agreement that complies with Section 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

What was the date of the credit card agreement?

did you take out the 'highly recommended' MBNA PPI?

and;

when did you last make a payment?

Hi Angry Cat,

 

 

Sorry to provoke your Victor Meldrew outburst.

 

 

I only mention CCK as it may or may not be relevant.

 

 

Card was taken out March 1998

Default date Feb 2010

Last Payment around Sept 2009

 

 

Other info:-

 

 

Debt assigned to Verde Investments April 2010

then AK Feb 2012

 

 

So I send a CCA request to AK..is this correct?

Do I inform the Court or await the reply?

 

 

Thanks for your prompt reply

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

There are no other details on the claim for regarding Solicitors.

 

 

I presume I send both CCA & CPR direct to AK - UK

Yes. The CPR 31.14 request may be refused if the claim has been issued by the Northampton CC.

If, I were you then I would make an S78 CCA request to AK;

I would also be asking them: "Are you the 'Creditor'?

 

You must, as previously suggested request 'Full Disclosure' from AK under Part 31.14:

http://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part31

You can also ask for an extension of time, when AK start to drag their feet.

 

Stick to the CPR's and the Courts overriding objective...

 

If the alleged debt was assigned to Varde?

What kind of assignment was it: equitable or absolute?

The alleged debt was obviously securitised via Varde but not by MBNA, who was the original 'Creditor'.

 

If, CCK did assign the alleged debt to Varde, the MBNA toxic debt wouldn't have been theirs to sell assign.

Therefore, I do not see how AK can possibly be the 'Creditor'

"This would have been illegal. People can'tsell their debt to someone else without the agreement of the 'Creditor'.

 

Who was/is the recorded owner (the 'Creditor) of the alleged debt on your credit reference agency credit files from 2010 (Default date) - 2014?

Yes it has been issued from Northampton via MCOL

 

I will request it anyway.

 

When is it best to submit a defence?

 

You cannot submit your defence until you are in receipt of 'Full Disclosure'!

You need to know what their claim is reliant upon and;

you cannot proceed until AK have complied.

But you must keep the Court advised; in the loop

OK...thanks everyone, a lot to go through!

 

I have already submitted AOS

 

My credit file has been changed to show AK are the creditor. The history now only goes back to when they say the debt was assigned to them although the default date is a lot earlier.

 

I don't think CCK assigned the debt to verde it was MBNA.

 

I will dig out as much paperwork as I can and up date soon.

 

Thanks again

Looks like you need to do a lot of digging; acquire knowledge.

 

If MBNA charged off the account to Varde (Ireland), it was securitised through same;

MBNA securitised (securitized) much of their toxic accounts through RoI and obtained Tax Relief by doing so.

However, that is another story...

 

IMHO, you should also be making a SAR to MBNA, the cost of same is £10;

request any and all historic information Re: the account. But ensure that you mark you postal order: SAR request only. Send by Recorded Delivery, keep copies.

 

The more information that you can acquire the better!

Hi all,

...Back in October 2009 when I was in a financial black hole, I foolishly sold an MBNA CC Debt to Credit Card Killer/Momentum Networks. (That's a story in itself)

 

In short, the alleged MBNA debt was floating around in the big buckets of MBNA toxic debts black hole from October 2009 - March 2012, that's almost three years!

 

You say that the account was defaulted in 2010 (MBNA used to allow 7 late payments prior to defaulting the account).

 

My opinion is that AK is trying it on having substituted themselves in the place of Varde.

And that they do not hold a valid credit agreement as well as the agreement not being varied correctly.

 

Once you obtain ALL historic information, including the dubious assignment(s) you will be better placed to defend.

There was information a few years ago, that Varde bought some MBNA whilst not renewed their Licence ,

hence sold to AK in a hurry,

then renewed their licence,

 

 

but as the trend seems to go AK got them and others so need to connect with fighting AK??

 

 

you my 2 penneth worth having been there ?

Thanks all...your comments are invaluable!

 

 

I take it that whilst I'm awaiting the requested info from AK & MBNA, I can keep the legal wolf from the door - as long as I keep the Court informed?
