Happy New Year To Me!!

 

Slightly misleading as no court time needed -

I had multiple mobile accounts which I stopped paying after informing them due to bad customer service

& failure to provide everything promised under contract or implied contract.

 

This they didn't like and each contract was apparently sent to a DCA etc - about £1000 in total maybe.

 

I had got into the habit of ignoring because I'm stubborn and righteous haha but

 

 

couple years later just before Christmas I was surprised to receive court papers for one of the accounts from infamous (on here) solicitors.

 

I stubbornly waited just until the deadline (as they do) to file a defence

and I just decided to go at it with full details to show that I wasn't messing/afraid and that I would be a great witness re the 51% threshold.

 

 

I know the normally better method is to be brief & hold back haha.

I also reserved the right to counterclaim re default defamation.

 

Today I was actually preparing to do a CPR document request but I've just received a discontinuation of claim :D :D :D out of the blue

 

I'm guessing/hoping this means the other accounts won't be acted upon?!

 

Should I bother asking them to remove the default as they've tacitly accepted my defence?

 

I know I'm being smug but im happy!!

I mean the accounts. Remember they would still exist after the case throw out.

Email Sara De Tute... Get it sorted...

 

As in write a letter to her at L? And demand that all the accounts be closed?

 

Should I ask for the defaults to be removed in the same letter for the same reason do you think?

 

Thanks

They will almost certainly advise this was a commercial decision not to go ahead with the claim and refuse to remove the defaults :(

Yeah I assumed something like that :(

 

I think it's unfair of them because it wasn't a debt issue per se: I notified them first to say they were in breach of contract. I didn't owe money it's all the subsequent bills they thought I should still be paying.

 

On top of that though I had one 'account' where I dealt with multiple phone sub-accounts and though my termination reason covered them all they have applied multiple defaults.

 

They've certainly vexed me haha
