    • Thankyou very much i will be around all day it would be appreciated Below is another attempt :     IN THE COUNTY COURT AT ***************                 CLAIM NO:**********     BETWEEN:   LOWELL PORTFOLIO I LTD CLAIMANT   and   MRS *********************** DEFENDANT   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   WITNESS STATEMENT OF ******************   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   I, ******************************************* WILL SAY as follows:   I make this Witness Statement in support of my defence in the claim.     INTRODUCTION   1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct disputed or bad debts, which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed 10p to 15p in the £1 and to which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income. Lowell Portfolio I Ltd issue claims to circumvent and claim the full amount of debt to maximise profit.   2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.   BACKGROUND 3. The Claim relates to an alleged Credit Card Agreement between the defendant and Vanquis Bank   4. Whilst it is accepted that the defendant has in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis, the defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers, and the defendant has not entered into any contract with the Claimant.   5.The defendant made a formal written request to the Claimant for them to provide me with a copy of my Consumer Credit Agreement as entitled to do so under sections 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 on the 27th August 2019 along with the standard fee of £1.00 postal order to which the defendant received a reply dated 6th September 2019 putting their account on hold whilst they tried to gather the information.   6.The defendant received a reply dated 24th October 2019 with no CCA attached other than the documents which enclosed a statement, default notice, notice of assignment from Vanquis to Lowell & a reconstituted copy of an agreement which the claimants have already provided in their witness statement dated 3rd August 2020.   7.On 15th January 2020, I received a claim form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £******. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £********* in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no ******************* pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA). Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Vanquis to Lowell on 24 June 2015 with notice given.   CONCLUSION 8.To date no valid full true copy of the executed credit agreement or the terms and conditions have been disclosed .the claimant has no grounds on which to enforce this alleged debt.   9.The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application. The screenshots are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.   10.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78 6a of the CCA1974 the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.   11.For the above reasons the claim bought by the claimant is without merit and an abuse of the court process. It would be far more gracious and forthright for the claimant to admit that they do not have possession of the correct valid paperwork and this is an attempt to mislead and convince the court that the claimant can disclose the legal valid documents on which its claim relies on. It is therefore requested that the Claimants Claim is struck out pursuant to the above.   STATEMENT OF TRUTH   I, ************** the defendant, believe the facts stated in this witness statement are true. I understand that proceedings for contempt of Court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.   Signed: …………………………………………… Print Name: ************* Dated: 4th August 2020

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Ignore them, don't even give it another moments thought.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Hello there,

 

A month or two after my last post detailing the fact Capquest had started sending letters suddenly,

I got a letter from Arrow Global saying that my account was now being administrated by NCO global.

 

For the past three months I've had letters from them

- the first mentioned that they were managing the account and noted that I had 'paid recently'

- as you know, I have never paid.

 

I've since had statement/payment requests on a monthly basis but no mention of missed payments and no change of balance or interest.

 

Today I got a letter from Arrow Global saying my account had now been passed 'NCO resolve' and suggesting I get in touch with them.

This whole situation is baffling.

There have been so many different letters and agencies and never any kind of late payment reminder.

 

I predict that you will all tell me to keep ignoring the letters for now!

Am I right?

Or do I send a 'statute barred' letter to this new organisation?

 

With best wishes, Kate

Hello, I had exactly the same problem with Sallie Mae and other various debt recovery agents. I was lead to this post from the post that I wrote back in 2013.

 

How did this one end? for me, I have not heard anything from the agents for a couple of years now after I followed the advice from this site.

 

I recently looked at my credit score via ClearScore and the Sallie Mae debts do not appear on it.

 

Hello, I am still at the same point. I have not heard anything for a long while and my credit score (Clearscore) has recently gone up. It has been over 10 years now and I hope this is finally the end of this horrid business.

 

 

 

Although hearing that they are sending letter out again makes me rather worried. But I will wait to see if anything happens. How long will they keep chasing?

Hi all, 

 

I'm afraid I missed the 2018 messages  - apologies.

Has anyone made any progress?

I haven't heard a peep for over a year, although I still have a loan on my credit record.

 

I'm waiting until I'm well past the Scottish statute barred period, including the 'payment holiday' written into the loan, before attempting to get it removed from my record.

I hope you've managed to do the same.

passing SB date does not remove it from your credit file

the default reaching its 6th birthday does though.

Hi DX100UK, I think you must mean post 64 - yes, I was and still am resident in Scotland.

 

Sorry, I did mean default - the default is presumably when I ought to have first paid but as you will remember they didn’t ask for money until I got in touch on here.

 

My loans date to 2006-8, I was supposed to start paying in 2009 but I finished my studies much later in 2013.

 

I don’t know if it is technically a default if they don’t get in touch for payment.

 

I have not acknowledged the debt verbally or in writing since taking the loans.

It is - similarly to other posters. It appears on my file with a green tick next to every month for the last three years but I’ve never made a single payment. The amount hasn’t changed.

Hello All,

 

Sorry I have been away so long on this topic. I have not really had nothing to report as the usual from CapQuest - sending form letters periodically - has continued to happen until this morning. I have ignored the letters but the change this morning was CapQuest have threatened to send round ResolveCall to my place (ResolveCall are some sort of debt collection agency) if I do not respond by 30 Aug, and will then have asserted they will have no more dealings with me with things being passed over to ResolveCall.

 

I assert anything CapQuest has ever said is completely superseded by the SallieMae loans being statue barred, as I was living in Scotland beyond the 6yr limit with no contact whatsoever (I have been living in England now for almost 7 years, yes this issue was that long ago, very similar to KEdin's issue as I have never made a payment, debts started appearing on my credit record erroneously stating I did make payments, etc...), I wish to find out what everyone's advice is.

 

What should I do now, and in the near future in good time BEFORE the 30 Aug deadline unilaterally declared by CapQuest, especially after reading much of what I saw in the above second link? Thank you for any and all advice. And sorry KEdin that I have not responded before now, but do see my reason above.

 

Thank you.

Removed the links

That site is very wrong almost Freeman of the land stuff

 

Resolvecall or scotcall do not buy debts

They like moorcroft and wetcloths only chase for clients

 

They are not BAILIFFS

No dca can ever be and no dca has any legal powers anyway on any debt anyway

 

if they turn up do not engage

film them on your phone

tell them to leave and not return or you'll call 

police 101

Hi Guys.

 

I had the very same problem with the debt recovery agents for Sallie Mae.

 

After some extremely useful help from this site they seemed to back off.

 

My credit score via Clearscore seems to be OK although there are other credit score companies so I will see if it flags up.

 

I have had absolutely no more contact from either Drydens or Arrow so I am hoping that this mess is all over now.

 

I hope anyone who took out a loan with Sallie Mae gets it sorted out and then able to move forward with their lives.

 

One good thing is that they can never take away the qualification I gained through the loan.

 

I will keep you updated with any news.

Kind Regards

Hi All,

 

Sorry no response for a long time. Was away for awhile, then got very ill - but all much, much better now, so I can respond.

 

A visit today from ResolveCall, but as I was at work, I only saw 2 cards they left. I suspect they will try to find the right time to catch me. I will follow the above advice however.

 

I also checked my credit score in the past few days (one of the things to do when completely ill and bed-ridden), and saw the SallieMae seemed to have disappeared recently, at least on Noddle, which has now been bought out by a US credit agency (ominous, that US purchase). Noddle seem to use Experian in some fashion.

 

a new phase, but I follow the advice above, and look for other credit score agencies to see what is happening credit-score-wise.

Not sure about the way forward here, but I think I remember a way KEdin got rid of these annoyances via sorting the statue barred route. I will investigate and may proceed along that path sooner rather than later.

 

Thank you everyone for the advice and help as usual.
