Sent a prove it letter to Cabot today Re their claim that my debt is a current account.

 

Have since found letter from the Woolwich dated March 2003 giving notice of assignment of the debt to Equifax ltd.

 

The description they use is ' Your Woolwich plc Personal Loan account'.

 

No mention of a current account.

 

Can this letter help or hinder my case?

I don't know about equidebt they had a pdl of mine. Certainly not SB but they didn't get anything off me.

 

Same here. Had it only a couple of months after it defaulted, but was ignored and went away equally speedily!

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

that's not a reason to restart blindly paying them.

 

just because a debt management co conned you into paying them thru their rip off plan.

So it's taken them 15 months to reply.

Are they correct that you have been paying them?

 

If so, can I ask why if you believe it to be unenforceable

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

I was paying £1 monthly through my debt management company, when they ceased trading I stopped paying & sent Cabot a CAA request in Oct 2015. They returned my £1 stating that there is no need to provide a copy of the credit card agreement as it does not apply To a current account.

 

Have since found letter from the Woolwich dated March 2003 giving notice of assignment of the debt to Equifax ltd. The description they use is ' Your Woolwich plc 'Personal Loan account' No mention of a current account.

The debt was then sold on to Cabot at a later date & the description of the debt changed to 'Current account'.

 

I have never had a current account with the Woolwich. I did have a personal loan with the Woolwich though.

Are personal loans covered by the CAA & should I resubmit My request for a CAA to Cabot with a copy of the Woolwich letter of assignment to Equifax dated 2003 stating 'personal loan account'

 

Your advice would be much appreciated

Yes personal loans are covered by the CCA1974...section 77.

Hi Desktop,

 

From what you've said, you sent a CCA request which is perfectly appropriate for a Loan Account, and the lender has failed to provide an appropriate response.

 

Therefore they're in breach of CCA 1974 and cannot make demands until they remedy that breach and supply the necessary documents.

Thanks for that.

 

What I don't want is for Cabot to make a claim against me which could end up as a CCJ.

 

I think I might submit a new CCA request notifying them that they are in breach of CCA 1974 for failing in the first instance to supply necessary documents.

 

The account number they use is correct but their description of current account is incorrect as it was originally a loan account.

 

Do you think that I should enlighten them or keep Quiet?

 

Also is their anything else I should add to the request?

 

Thanks

If you have already requested a copy of the agreement using section 77 and they are in default...do not send another...and its irrelevant what they wish to call the the debt and what type of debt....they do not know what they bought at discount hidden amongst 1000s of other defunct debts.

Yes I did request a copy of the agreement in sept 2015.

 

they replied (see letter) also returning my cheque for £1.

 

I did send a prove it letter to which they responded with still under investigation letters x3.

The last letter saying I am liable for the account.

 

I would appreciate some help with the wording of the letter I intend to send them regarding their default situation

Thats fine .....leave at that ...if they ever wish to issue a court claim...they are in default...its not your problem they think its a current account when in facts its a personal loan..but they will know if you ever have to submit a defence...retain that letter safe for future reference.

Hope everyone had a nice christmas,

 

Just before christmas I received the attached letter from Cabot. (Great timing)

 

As advised by forum members I have ignored all previous letters from them,

the latest one says that unless I contact them within 14 days they might pass my account on to an external debt collection company ?????.

 

Should I be worried about this or should I just ignore it.

 

Any advice appreciated

 

Many thanks
