    • 2nd class will do... don't waste money, all you have to do it prove you sent it. the time limit is not a case of they can and will issue a claim.   PAPLOC is merely a process they must now go thru as so many fleecing debt buyers were issuing speculative court claims and abusing the court system as a method of debt collection with no real hope of success other than wet yourself syndrome or default judgements as everything was sent to old addresses mostly on purpose.    
    • YOu say send it first class, get a free Proof of Postage, but would it make any difference if I get it recorded?   As there's under a week left before their cut off date, I just want to ensure 100% they receive it before the date, and have evidence that they did when they receive it.  
    • Have you put a formal claim into Hermes? I think you should put formal claims into Hermes in respect of each one. I suggest that you leave it about five days apart so that they are treated completely separately. Hermes of course will refuse to compensate you – but then we will help you begin a legal action against them. Once again, I think that your best interests will be served by claiming and suing for only one of them – and then the second one separately once you have the result of the first one. We will help you all the way – but you need to start off by reading around the stories on the sub- forum about Hermes complaints and actions against Hermes. You need to understand the mediation process – and there are lots of good summaries on the sub- forum. Also you should read around on this website about the steps involved bringing a small claim in the County Court. Begin the claims process with Hermes so that you get a denial of liability – and then we will go to the next step.

    • Well please can you search everything and get all your documents together. Read them. Understand what you have. And they make sure they are properly filed. Do you have the name and address of the driver? Also I believe that you said that you had received a message from your own insurer saying that you were liable – or something like that. Please can you reproduce that message here – preferably in PDF format   Don't respond to anyone without checking with us first. We would want to know why you are being asked to contact people. However, you definitely need to contact your insurer tomorrow as I've already suggested. You really need to find out what's going on, why they have made the decision that they have and you want copies. Don't tell them that you sent them on SAR. Keep that a completely separate matter – but simply ask them on the telephone to have copies of all the documents that they have assembled in respect of this case. Once again, you should be recording this.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi Silverfox i also think that the OP was indicating that SB was their current thinking and i have been through this myself very recently, i too am talking about pre98 loans and just want the OP to be aware that if Link are threatening then just ignore as they are a very dishonest bunch of parasites imo. But if the OP has been deferring then this i believe is "Acknowledgment". I would wait until dx, Andy or such like who are experts in my experience clarify though as my experience is only my own.

Then just ignore link is my advice, if they ever do manage to get you on phone? Just say "In writing only" and put down telephone.

 

Once you are 100% sure 6yrs have lapsed then send SB template letter.

 

PS: It might be worth your while sending a SAR to SLC as the SLC have obviously sold this outstanding amount to Link and do not let Link scare you with court action as they are not the original creditor. Its all just part of their devious, dishonest and frankly illegal activities to get people to pay and remember they are just a DCA and not baliffs and have very limited powers although they will lie to you otherwise!

You mean Thesis?

 

Just to elucidate further, I came on here for some advice when all this was happening and had them send me out copies of the loan twice, and there was/still is a question mark over whether it is a valid since some of the writing on the copies they provided was illegible.

 

So I have to write to them after the 6 years stating that I no longer recognise this debt or something like that?

 

I have a bit of experience at dealing with debt collectors and I know how they work, they will try to scare you when in fact they are most likely bluffing/unlikely to actually do anything about it since they probably only bought the debt for a few quid anyway. They rely on the ones who cave in and pay to keep their profit margins up.

Link and Thesis are the same company, just before Christmas i called link and there answered the phone stating "Hello Thesis" before correcting herself to "Sorry Link".

 

As regards 6 yrs once you are sure then send the "i do not recognise this debt" and follow the procedure ........ Job done.

  • 1 year later...

They've been chasing me for about 8 years now for a default on just over a year of Student Loans when I failed to send in the deferment form.

 

Up until last year though I was sending in the form and getting the loan (or the rest of it) deferred, however each year was becoming more and more of a chore. I had to hassle them to send out the letter confirming deferment and last year they just didn't bother to send a form out to me at all, so I though sod them.

 

Been getting the same letter from Thesis for years, but now this one is threatening to take me to court if I don't pay up.

 

Should I just ignore it? I'm guessing it's just an attempt to scare me and they have no real powers to do anything, right?

 

They also got my address wrong, I have told SLC about this many times, but still they get my address wrong.

 

I wrote to SLC about 8 years ago and asked for copies of the agreement, and the copies they sent were partly illegible in some parts.

 

Oh yeah, the loan was taken out pre-1998 and I live in Scotland. It's about two years now since I last acknowledged this debt, so I was thinking I can't be bothered with this hassle every year with getting them to send the form out etc, I'll just sit on it and wait for another 3 years to pass.

 

As far as I am aware I have never acknowledged this debt with Thesis, or in any case I have certainly not acknowledged this debt with Thesis for over 6 years. The debt they are chasing me for is more now though as the default amount has risen in the last because I failed to defer.

 

I'd be happy to pay this pending a commensurate income, but they haven't played fair with me, and as far as I'm concerned this was summer money I should have been getting from welfare anyway as I started the Uni the year the tories scrapped this for students.

In sheep's clothing? Is that the right metaphor for a DCA that's nothing to worry about?

 

I was just going along the lines, they've not taken any action against me in 8 years so.... but this is the first time (in a while anyway) they've threatened me with court action.

 

If they're not going to send out the deferment form, then how can I defer?

If I do that then I'm acknowledging the debt.

 

Are you recommending that I do that? I'm just thinking that they don't seem to actually do anything, and if I wait another three years and just ignore them, probably move house soon hopefully then it'll all just go away.

I haven't though, as I explained last year they didn't send the form out,

around the same time as everything in my life went south

and I sustained an injury to one of my upper limbs.

 

This is perhaps why Thesis appear to be upping the game.

 

I haven't sent in a deferment form for over two years, because I got tired of them not sending the form out

and then I have to go to the library to print one out,

then get the job centre to stamp it,

then send it by recorded delivery, then several weeks later

I have to hassle them to send the confirmation letter out.

 

I'm also on WTC now trying to run my own business

so I'm not sure where I stand with deferring

or how I go to show that I am eligible.

ok well old style loans can become SB'd after 6yrs.

 

 

so let it run?

 

 

I doubt that letter says will anywhere

and they cant I expect default or more importantly

that it will show now on CRa files.

 

 

let it run.

It does say 'Court action will then follow unless...' in one paragraph.

 

Default notice served under section 87(1) of the CCA 1974.

 

Do they own the debt now ? If not, then they cannot send out a default notice in their own name ?

Thesis own a portion on the old style loan book now, so they can send out a s87 default notice in their name and register a default with the CRAs just the same as SLC could. I've seen defaults from them on the CRAs, so I know this is not necessarily a 'bluff'.

Are you saying then they might own this debt with the SLC now, because I failed to defer they sold it on?

There were two letters. Hope the upload works and it's in the right format.

 

They is what you would expect. They can terminate the agreements and demand the whole balance back if you don't make up the arrears.

 

They do say "WILL" on the the court action, but whether they do or not is anyone's guess. Link Financial sometimes do go to court though, so you should not rule it out..

No. They were sold on years ago in one of the previous sales of large sections of the student loans book to the private sector.
