Today I got a citation from my local court for £8000 credit card debt. It is a form 05

 

The account was opened in 2001 and was defaulted in August 2006.

 

I was paying token payments of £1 toward this until 2010/11

 

The original lender was Halifax bank of Scotland.

The papers say that the account was assigned to Cabot in 26th January 2015

 

I have a notice of assignment dated December 2008

along with a welcome to Cabot letter saying they have bought the debt also dated December 2008.

 

I have today requested CCA information

 

I am not sure what to do now, it says I can either file a defence or apply for a time to pay direction.

 

I really don't have access to such sums of money to pay this

 

Any advice gratefully received

well the court will probably allow them to claim 8% per annum so for ease sake the first year interest would be £640 and you offer to pay £60

 

you would never pay it off

just to let you know

certainly where I am the very far n.e. Scotland

cabot never turn up

simply use a locum or whatever their title is

they know scant info about the debt

 

you def need to get a CCA request running.

 

what date have you got to respond by

and what date is the hearing?

 

 

DO NOT ADMIT TO THE DEBT OR OFFER TO PAY

let them provide an enforceable agreement & the correct T&C's and

T&C's for the time of the DN and any significant changes.

 

 

pers I doubt they will comply.

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...

do you have other debts?

 

Yep, lots but all defaulted back in 2006 ,

I manage to keep up token payment until 2011 , I lost track of it all then

 

I realise I would never pay it off but I do not have any more money to pay it ,

 

What can they do to me if they win at court and I can't pay ? I'm terrified

 

I don't earn enough for them to arrest my wages,

my bank account never has enough in it to be frozen ,

I am in rented accommodation, I have a 10 yeAr old car, that's. It.

I don't know how to defend this claim,

I' will go and see citizens advice see what they say

well they've sat on this till its almost at its SB date...

what does that tell you.

...

 

 

fat chance of them getting an enforceable and signed CCA from 2001 I'd suspect.

 

 

hold you nerve

don't admit to anything

and don't write/phone answer them on the phone.

 

 

cabot are simply hoping for a non defended rubber stamped default judgement

as they always do.

 

 

theses no rush to send page 7 is it? if its a form 1a back till just before 6th October

defend it

 

 

write in the space near that part

- pursuer to provide signed agreement and other paperwork they intend to rely upon

to enable me to, if necessary, construct a suitable defence.

Yes it is page /form 07 , so I write the above and hand it back in on the 6th.

 

Then what will happen, do I need to go to a solicitor? I can't afford it so I would rather do it my self if possible

 

And thank you I have been up all night worrying about this

nothing to worry about at all

you don't need a sols. its very easy to sort this

and win...

 

 

pers I'd be popping into the court and seeing the clerk to the Sherriff.[they have an office]

 

 

is the court local to you?

they are VERY helpful.

 

 

very worst that could happen is £1 a month IF you lose [fat chance of that happening!!]

Yes it's the local court Forfar

I didn't know that anyone at the court could help me.

I will fill out the form and hand it back in on the 5th october and then wait further developments. I costs £ 90 doesn't it?

At least I have a few weeks to get that together.

Thanks again ,

If it does go Against me how do I arrange the £ 1 a month is that direct with the court , and do I need to actually go to the court?

Sorry for the silly questions but my head is spinning

£90?

doesn't cost you anything.?

 

pers I'd simply pop into the office asap.

they'll put you right.

 

you will have to attend the court on the hearing date on the form

 

nothing special

all the cases will be heard together

you will simply be called to a table at the front.

 

if the sheriffs over there are like ours in the north east

they will guide you.

bottom line is without the signed agreement they are stuffed

the sheriff knows the score

It says on the form if you wish to defend this action lodge a notice to defend form 07 . The notice to defend along with the court fee of £90 must be lodged with the sheriff clerk within 21 days of 14th September

 

Oh and there is no hearing date on the form,

what you need to do is go read about the number of times cabot have simply not turned up

or discontinued a case because of no CCA.

Cabot raised an Ordinary Cause against me and when I tried to submit my own defence the Sheriff was very snippy and told me I hadn't followed the rules. Gave me 2 weeks to submit "legal defences"

 

I think it's just your luck which Sheriff you talk to and how their days going, Edinburgh Sheriff court has a few 'nippy' clerks.

Well I went to see a solicitor this morning and she advised waiting to see if they reply to the CCA request,

 

 

if I get the unenforceable letter then submit a defence other wise do nothing

and not return any response to the court and let the decree pass

and then offer them £1 a month as I don't earn enough for attachments or arrestment's

as they can do nothing else to me.

 

So I just need to hope they don't comply with the CCA request.

Have just recieved a letter from Cabot, saying they can't find the documents and the debt is now unenforceable and they are not permitted to obtain a decree against me.
