    • You're like, super helpful and unhelpful at the same time lol.   What do I search for, I searched form 4, and nothing, I searched claiming compensation and nothing about this.   I can't find the top squares logo.   Can you post a link or tell me what to search.   Sorry if I'm slow.
    • use our custom google search box  click our top squares logo it should appear on that page   dx
    • Apologies, I haven't used a forum for years!!   I defo wish to keep the 2 issues separate, sorry!   My only issue I need help with is the increased compo for marstons - if possible.   I don't know anything about claiming compo etc. (I only recently found out one of the NHS biggest costs are NDA payouts)   I don't know what form 4 is; so far, they've offered £250 and I haven't accepted or denied it.   So yeah, can you forward me to some more info?   Also, usually I'm good at google etc. but I can't find many stories on this stuff, regarding PCN/TFL etc.   Thanks again!
    • ok things are getting clearer...   I've merged 2 of your posts for clarity and removed the swearing, (behave please) I've also taken down the two images you posted should you wish to post things up please use PDF so we can zoom easily and don't forget to redect them read upload carefully.   I think you need to continue to keep the two thing sep. those being increased compo for marstons- if possible ( if you are raising a form 4? complaint through the court - it might be better you don't? - they are very hard to justify and can be costly - so the fact it might not be moving forward could be a good thing, but listen to others here too) and the issue of the PCN wasn't justified - which you need to further expand on please.   the more info you post up the better please but please use multipage PDF files only and carefully redact them    
    • Thanks for trying btw! It's kinda in 2 parts.   1 is that the PCN wasn't justified in the first place and I wasn't aware it had escalated. I received the initial fine from TFL which I challenged and heard nothing back from (for 5 months). Then another letter from a separate PCN which made me email TFL to inquire what was going on but again, heard nothing back.   (BTW I can see how confusing this is so thanks again for trying)   So, I had no idea my car was at the risk of being taken - that's the first part.   No 2. is:   I got a phone call saying my car was on the back of a truck round the corner from mine (they hadn't left any notices or anything, and the car was parked directly outside my house). My friend said they were attaching the straps and securing it to the van (so I think they got it on the back of the van and moved it before securing it).   When I ran round the corner I saw the EA's van. I went upto it and asked what was going on. He was rude and told me to go away. Then after I kept knocking he got out the van and was aggressive and refused to ID himself or tell me why he had my car.   He shouted at me, was rude and unprofessional, he then left with my car. I complained to Marstons and asked for the bodycam footage.   They gave me the footage but it was clearly edited and cut short (because in the beginning of the footage he was the most aggressive).   They then told me he wasn't required to have the camera turned on when he's in the van, only when he's 'actively pursuing a warrant' and I was only allowed the footage I was in. (which is 2 different things) So I asked them to clarify which is true.   Anyway, I reviewed the footage and sent in my complaint (talking about what happened in the footage) They replied and said they watched the footage and disagreed with everything I said.   So I wrote a more in depth response with the CIVEA code to reference + the TFL EA guide etc.    Then they asked for more time, called me and finally apologised and admitted he had acted untoward and was in the wrong.   They then offered me the goodwill payment.   This has taken up weeks of my time, caused me serious trauma and PTSD and even after I complained WITH video evidence, they still initially denied it which means they officially lied, on record, while representing TFL.   I told TFL what was happening they said I had to continue with Marstons etc.   £250 goodwill isn't enough, the car cost £800 to get out, the suspension is messed up and I'd like to claim compensation for everything.   I don't know if that makes me sound like i'm money grabbing or whatever but they shouldn't be allowed to get away with it.   The police had to come before they could call an ambulance cause I was having a panic attack and it was a HORRIBLE experience.    So any help would be great please    I have the whole file from Resolver in a ZIP file but it's a lot of writing and I think you've read enough of my writing to last a life time!   I did a statutory declaration of OOT, got it signed by the court etc. but it was rejected.   I then tried to take them to court but it cost £250 I think which I don't have. You can get it for free if your low income but they wanted bank statements that I couldn't get. They're waiting for me to reply with documents to get a free court date.    did you receive any of the pcn's - was that why you appealed? - Yes, sorry!   unless it's trying secure a greater level of compo from marstons? - Yes, sorry!   For the record I just saw this pop up, read it and now feel much less guilty about my enquiry!

Cabot letter RE HSBC Loan

Recommended Posts

Si if I send the SB letter does that carry with it a risk of resetting the clock?

 

I appreciate your time and help, however I am not au fait with the process, for that I apologise

DX no I have not been reading anything since 2016 when I last posted here - I have had no reason to!

 

Is it not a logical leap that if I send the SB letter that is an acknowledgement of the debt, which therefore "resets the clock"?

 

Loan  was dated 2003 on my Experian credit file (now gone) Loan CCA dated 2009, however this may have been a consolidation loan hence the disparity between my credit file and docs Cabot sent me almost 9 months after my CCA request in March 2015, I defaulted in 2010, no NOA, Default Notice etc and  no payment made since 2011, no contact from Cabot until 2015 , CCA request, radio silence then from Cabot until 2016, ignored them following discussion here and then no contact until last week.

 

What I'm worried about is that in the CCA request or sending the SB letter can be seen as an acknowledgement of the debt.

 

Because of the different ref numbers from Cabot I am worried, along with the different amounts claimed as owing.

 

Nothing is showing on my credit file, Noddle or Clear score and my Credit Expert score is 990+

 

If I can send the SB letter with absolutely no chance of triggering a court case then I'll do it - reading other threads re: Cabot and Ruthbridge, common advice is to just bin the letters hence my confusion as best course of action.

 

I am not being obtuse or pig-headed and I believe this should have been SB in 2016/17 latest.

I received a further letter and a phone call from Ruthbridge yesterday offering a 70% discount and through a lot of waffle go on to say verbatim (I hung up the phone without admitting who I am):

 

"If you fail to contact us... we may return the account to our client (cabot?) who may look at alternative activity"

 

I'm guessing they know it's SB then as there is no reference to court, however they do state that the credit reference agencies will be updated to reflect "partially settled" should I take advantage of their offer - there is no HSBC/Cabot/Ruthbridge account showing on any of my credit reports.

 

DX apologies if you take it as I am being difficult or dim, however I remain concerned that the CCA request does not contain the words "I do not acknowledge any debt" or similar and because only a debtor can apply for the CCA (as I'm led to believe) then sending for this in 2015 has reset the date of acknowledgement of the debt - has this ever been used by a DCA as an acknowledgement of the debt?

 

Furthermore with the 2015 letters and 2020 letter having completely different amounts allegedly owed and reference numbers that differ from the original letters from Cabot and the CCA supplied back in 2016 this is giving me a further level of concern over the best course of action.

CCA is not re-setting the date it is a right?  

no CRA showing ..how can they report a non existent account which is not showing,

pay them and if it was then it would just show partially settled and still be there killing your score for 6 years letters may this/that and the other are just threatograms used by the office junkie,

 

Cabot know this, 

sit on your hands and stop seeing what is not there"! 

Statute Barred is Final end of

sure Dx  will respond as well

 

at the end of the day if not showing how can they affect a CRA entry not there?

that was a bog standard threatograms used to many a person probably No 5 drawer in the 12 drawer next desk jockey

I don't intend to pay, I just want to make sure my repaired Credit Score is not affected by them somehow, as this has a massive implication for my current employment (Security Clearance/Vetting)

 

- I'm an engineer and cautious by nature so I do not under any circumstances want to fire off a SB letter only to receive a "haha, no it's not because you asked us for a CCA in 2015" reply from them and am seeking reassurance from the forums that my actions are not going to be cavalier and I end up unemployed and with a fried credit score.

 

I am no longer an individual but a family of 4 to consider.

if you read back in this thread to the 1st few posts you'll see a mentioned of thing called a managed loan

these were famous in HSBC land.

 

off their own back, and quite typically without any knowledge of the customer, HSBC would l lump all debt together, card, loan, OD and dump it in the current account as a mass unrequested OD. then a few months later sign the customer upto a new loan of the whole OD amount.

 

sometimes they did it in a different order, but that's the basics. very well known about here.

 

then lo and behold, they'd sell it on to a debt buyer/DCA.

they were a DCA's dream ticket, as they could use a variety  of account numbers to mug the same person if one number failed.

often it's been found the same sum existed under differing numbers with differing DCA's, but the mug was paying all of them.

 

a CCA/SAR or whatever letter sent cannot reset any SB date, it's nothing to do with SB. They are a legal request and it is not necessary to inc a line stating no debt acknowledgement etc.

 

as for credit files and whatever number has been used for the account, the fact that one part of the mess/debacle has been defaulted years ago and has now reached it's 6th birthday so the whole account gets removed, encompasses all numbers, so no it cant comeback on your file.

 

send the SB letter.

Update: received a letter from Ruthbridge today saying Csbot have asked for the file to be returned to them and that they (Ruthbridge) have closed the account and I will not be hearing from them again.

 

Any ideas what I'm likely to get from Cabot now?

 

Thanks

It is a bit worrying dx especially as I've worked hard to get out of bother financially

Have i done or said something to offend you?

 

I'm a veteran with mental health issues, extreme anxiety being a big one. There is no need to be rude really is there.

 

Whilst DCAs may not be Bailiffs or have any legal powers as you said yourself a few posts back they are an underhand mob that have dubious practices such as stealth CCJs and court action - so I ask you politely and calmly, why would I not be worried about it and "71 posts and 8 years on CAG" makes little to no difference to someone with my mental illness

well to some extent it would help if you operated the self help side of CAG too and read a few like threads here..

I cant reliably see you've viewed any other threads since 2016...?

mental health issues are not an excuse not to help yourself neither to stand up for yourself, which you appear to be quite capable of.

 

cabot know your correct address,

so there is no worry of anything backdoor or otherwise.

and in almost 5yrs now, they've done nowt but willy wave.

 

if someone owned you money, your recourse is via the small claim court

and that is the only route a dca has they have exactly the same powers as you or i.
