RBS credit card, old discontinued claim - now DCA chasing?

Recommended Posts

Hi advice please,



back in April 2012 I requested a copy of a CCA on a credit card from RBS, they failed to comply,

I put the account in dispute,

they came back eventually with a recon agreement that did not have the correct "necessary prescribed terms".



After numerous letters to and from RBS and then solicitors it went to court in Feb 2014.

I did try mediation but RBS refused,

in my defence I asked the court to strike out the claim as RBS failed to provide a CCA,

the Judge ordered in my favour,



the judgement was


"1. RBS having failed to comply with the relevant provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 these proceedings are stayed

(and no interest is to accrue on any outstanding sums) until RBS complies with its responsibilities to the satisfaction of the Court.


2. Provided that if RBS fails to comply with paragraph 1. above by 4pm on the 16th June 2014 then the claim is dismissed.


RBS did not,

their solicitors then wrote to me in April 2014 asking me to sign a consent order to withdraw the claim and no order to costs.

I replied inviting them to issue a notice of discontinuance, which they did for all of the claim and I have a copy which was sent to Court.


Out of the blue I get a letter the other day saying the RBS had failed to contact or agree a suitable repayment plan

and have passed details on to a collection agent who will be in contact to discuss a repayment option.


As far as I'm concerned,

a judgement had been made,

RBS withdrew the case and if a claimant discontinues a claim

they can't take the same case back to Court if the defendant had filed a defence,



I really am getting fed up with RBS and feel its time to deal with these incompetent people,

what's my options harassment ??

they can still ask for payment



you can ask them to go away.



has the debt been sold

or simply sent out for collection to a powerless DCA?

Should have gone down the Consent Order route....far greater protection.They can continue to try to collect on a discontinued claim......its only if they try to issued a further claim on the same debt that they require the courts permission...as a defence was submitted.


CPR 38 (7).....




Hope this helps

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
