    • 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

Hi everybody,

This is my first time on here, other posts look really helpful so I thought I would give it a go

I'll try keep this short as poss

 

I live in a block of flats with underground parking. In July this year I received a £60 FCN on my windscreen

It had basically fallen too far down my windscreen so less than half was showing.

I appealed (1st appeal), lost, then reluctantly paid the discounted fine of £60

Case closed I thought......oh no!

This week I received through the post two seperate FCNs for the week prior to my first offence both stating, as with the original,

The two tickets were only 36 hours apart if that makes any difference, and 7-8 days before my original FCN.

Both failed the initial appeal today.

 

I received no windscreen stickers for these two offences.

 

I will be appealing to the Independent Appeals Service and any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Are these fines from the council/police or from a private parking company? If the latter, read similar threads on the forum and you will soon see that such 'invoices' can generally be challenged, though specific tactics depend upon the company involved.

 

Do you have an allocated parking space, i.e. is your vehicle parked on your own property? If so, you could always counter claim for trespass if they're alleging that they did put notices on your car!

Thank you for your reply.....They are from a PPC (Capital2Coast Parking Management).

I would love to say I could counter claim but asking around when I first received the original ticket I'm not sure if that is possible as I am not the freeholder, merely a leaseholder. And therefore don't strictly own the parking space.

The landlord (housing association I believe) are the ones who entered into a contract with this company for the management of the carpark. I therefore have to abide by the car park rules.

That was your mistake,

they would have given up if you had fought the claim as they know that they are on to a loser ticketing people's own spaces.

 

They are too late to claim for the earlier events but as you paid one they are assuming that the driver is the same person so will try their luck!

 

 

In short, there is no keeper liability for these tardy demands to tell them that you have realised that an administrative error has occurred

that has resulted in them demanding and receiving £60 by misrepresentation under the Fraud Act of 2006

and that you will seek to recover this and also may seek damages for harassment for the further demands.

 

Look, it is YOUR parking space and the contract they have that allows them to ticket isnt signed by you

so they dont have permission to go anywhere near your vehicle.

 

 

They will claim that the management co signed this off and you have agreed to it,

NO YOU HAVENT, you cannot assent to give away your rights by inertia so they have no contract.

 

 

The parking co know this but rely on you not knowing.

It has gained them £60 from you and god knows how much from other residents.

 

 

Dont believe that you have to show a parking permit,

this is just a convenience for them to stop them being sued by every resident who gets humpy over their actions.

Thanks very much for your advise, it sounds very positive and encouraging.

Am I right in thinking that I should compile an email or letter to demand my original £60 back that I paid in August?

even before I lodge my appeal with the IAS? which they state must be submitted within 21 days

I also noticed on the signs dotted around the car park it states by using this car park I have entered into a contract with C2C

I like your way of thinking but It is my understanding that the cost must be over £100 for a section 75 claim to be valid

My worry is that the parking space isn't strictly mine as I am a leaseholder. The actual landlord is a housing management company.

So i'm guessing that the parking space is not 'my' private land

What some people are saying is because landlord appointed C2C to manage the carpark, I 'by parking or remaining at this site otherwise in accordance with the rules, me as the driver, are agreeing to the contractual terms' (quote from signs)

Let me state i'm not sure if I ticked the 'driver' box on the appeal form (can't remember sorry)

If you have leased the space, then it is yours. Can your landlord (or anyone else for that matter!) wander in to your flat whenever they feel like it? The same applies to your parking space.

Thank you for your advice........so would you recommend me to not appeal via the IAS and ignore any future correspondence from Capital2Coast and their solicitors/bailiffs?

Head them off by writing to C2c and tell them in no uncertain terms that they are trespassing when they put a ticket on your car and are misrepresenting themselves when they claim their contract is valid as it isnt in your case.

BTW the management co DOESNT own the flats, the clue is in the name, they are appointed by the landlord but can be booted out by the residents (owners of the leases) it you can get together as a quorum and then pass a motion to do so. Your problem is that most leasholders will be renting out or wouldnt care anyway.

I wouldnt waste the time with the IAS unless you just want a laugh at the reason why they turned down your appeal. It will be wrong and pathetic.

Thanks for the positive information. I am in the process of contacting my housing management company, who hired c2c and demand that these invoices be cancelled and my VRN put on a whitelist. I may appeal to the IAS just to see what they say and it will also give me more time to research other cases similar to mine. I have been told of a very good one on here in which the defendant did exactly what you are suggesting, took them to county court claiming damages for trespass and an injunction to prevent further trespass, and won. There is hope!

Forget your housing management company, they trousered an improper payment when they employed these bandits so they arent going to help you. Dont forget, the contract between C2C and the management co isnt worth a light legally so they will both lie to you and hope you just go away and stop spoiling thweir money making scheme. By all means go to the IAS but you wont win as they wont allow your appeal as it isnt one of their reasons you can cite for appealing. Again, there is self-interest as the solicitors who own the IPC are the IAS and the same solicitors then do the legwork in any court action so they earn all ways round.

A feffoff letter to C2C and a demand that they repay the money gained by misrepresentation is enough, if they are then stupid enough to try and claim more maoney via the courts you should counterclaim but other than that trying to recover £60 alrady paid will prove a great effort for little reward.

If you do use the IAS appeals service then quite the case against UKPC and point out the lack of contract to allow c2c to interfere with your parking space despite the signage in the garage-that is for people who dont own a space and nothing to do with you..

Your contract with the HA would trump the parking co every time. You could always challenge them to take you to court and let a judge tell them that they have no right to charge you to park in a space that you already pay for.
