Hi caggers,

 

I have received a letter from Mortimer Clarke which I originally thought was to do with an alleged Barclaycard debt but now realise relates to an alleged Egg debt.

 

The letter contains income and expenditure forms and a Direct Debit mandate for me to complete

and states that if no reasonable offer if made within 14 days then they will issue a claim in the County Court.

 

 

I sent a s.77/78 request to Egg in 2010 and received nothing so assumed they had no agreement form to support the demands they were making of me for payment.

 

Should I reply to this Mortimer Clarke letter and if so how?

 

Any help much appreciated. Cheers.

Is this the first letter you've received off MC??

 

When did you take this Egg card out? Pre or post 2007?

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!

I would write to MC with a copy of the cca request you sent to egg in 2010 stating that no reply has been received to your request,

and you consider the ac to be in dispute until such time as your request is complied with

Thanks. What's the significance of whether or not it was pre or post 2007?

 

The regulations were amended in 2007 - it pretty much assumes that the banks ensured their agreements were CCA compliant.

Something similar to this needs to be sent, puts them to strict proof and under no doubt as to the state of this account.

Hi folks,

 

I have received a Northampton County Court claim form dated 14 October 2015 for an alleged debt to Egg.

 

 

I CCA'd Egg in 2010 and they provided an agreement which I was unsure about so I have since maintained the position that I do not acknowledge the debt

. Marlin wrote to me in Feb 2014 and I replied with another CCA request.

They produced no documents.

 

Now I have this claim form. It says :

 

"By an agreement between Egg Banking plc & the Defendant on or around 05/11/2002 ("the Agreement"} Egg Banking plc agreed to loan the Defendant monies.

The Defendant did not pay the instalments as they fell due & the Agreement was terminated.

The Agreement was assigned to the claimant on 31/01/2013.

 

 

THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS

1, 11358.87.

2. Interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Court Act 1984, namely 5011.56

& continuing until Judgement or sooner payment at the rate of 2.49."

 

What do I do now?

Please help.

So you've not paid anyone anything on this debt since July 2009?

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...

Correct but I did write to them at end of 2009 which I suppose counts as me acknowledging it?

I ceased payments July 2009 but wrote to them at the end of 2009 explaining I had lost job and asking for help. Got no reply. Will this not count as the last time I acknowledged the debt and therefore the start of the statute barred period. Or is the statute barred clock started from when I last made a payment?

Earlier you stated the letter was around July. I understand you now believe it to be the end of 2009. I have never defended on this point of law but believe it to be the last acknowledgement Andy O will be more knowledgeable than me.

 

As this letter was to Egg it may no longer be in existence so cannot be used as evidence so forget it unless raised . I would do a SAR request where this information will be available to you.

I agree with Jack.

 

If your defence is SB then they have to prove otherwise and the likelihood of them having the letter from 6 years ago is slim.

 

BUT DO NOT REFER TO THIS LETTER IN ANY CORRESPONDENCE TO ANYONE. :-)

Sorry letter was end of 2009. Can I do a SAR at this point or should it be a CPR request? I'm concerned time is ticking away before court deadline.
