Cabot asking for payment for LLOYDS TSB credit card debt.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I think I'm in a similar situation.

 

I recently received a letter from Cabot saying that they had bought an account that I held with LLOYDS TSB - Credit Card.

 

The first letter was dated 19th November 2015.

 

Subsequently I have received two additional letters the last being, I imagine, the same as above (parksey78),

just a form wanting pesrsonal details and income/ outgoings.

 

I genuinely have no knowledge of this account and I was therefore about to send the template letter regarding 'no knowledge'

when I came across a similar thread suggesting that it maybe better to wait.

 

I have two questions,

 

the first is should I wait until I get something more substantial from Cabot as you have advised elsewhere and

 

two what is the reason why you would suggest not sending the 'no knowledge' letter at this stage?

 

Is it simply to avoid entering into any form of dialogue with them?

 

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I was specifically reffering to the guidance given in this post........ 457637-cabot-chasing-5-year-RBS-loan-debt-debt-no-contact......... I am reasonably familiar with the CCA request route but was interested to understand the guidance given in that post. Sorry haven't posted enough to be able to insert a proper link.

Well the other thread appears to be suggesting to wait until Cabot sends something more substantial

than the current letters which say 'We have a bought a debt from LLOYDS/TSB and

so now you owe us the debt

and we'll make it so easy for you to pay us'.

 

 

I just wandered if it was worth sending them a CCA request at this stage.

Well the " We Bought the debt " letter will be the Notice of Assignment ..therefore they legally own the debt now....the second letter is seeking your payment and financial position.

 

The letters and phone calls will continue until they get a response or an offer of payment.....so why not put them to task now..request the agreement...if they comply you are then aware that the debt is enforceable....and they could possibly issue a court claim.....

 

If they fail to comply...you can ignore any further communication/correspondence and get on with your life....in the knowledge it would be unwise for them to take this to the next stage.

 

Requesting your agreement has no effect on the Statute of Limitations

 

But its your choice.

Andy - thanks for advice, would it be just as effective to send a no knowledge of debt letter or not?

Rouge - I have no idea. If the debt does exist it will be at least 5 years old and quite possibly in the region of 15-20 years.

No because that has no Legal Standing and does not place them in default of your request.

Well if it is 15-20 years ago that you originally took out the card then Cabot are certainly going to struggle to comply

with your cca request

So letter and P.O. sent off. Coincidently I received a statement of account from Cabot today. It shows the date of agreement as 1st October 1984 and the date assigned as 2nd December 2013. Are these dates significant or not? Grateful for any help.

Hopefully it will turn out that the ac was started after may19 1985, otherwise they only have to provide the current t&cs to satisfy your request

 

However that could be contentious in itself, since if they cannot find the original(which they won't be able to)

How will they then be able to prove that the account was started in October 1984?

 

Await the cca reply, could prove entertaining

Yes I wondered the same about the start date. If they don't have the agreement how can they know the start of it....As you say, waiting for the reply with interest.

Well spend some time investigating that as it may well be statute barred and if not it most certainly will be by the time you get a response to your CCA request:becky:

Andy - How can I check those details? I can't remember and have no records whatsoever. Would lloyds/tsb still hold that info?

Andy - just received last transaction information. On the 15th April 2009 two transactions took place on the account. Both were payments made to the account, one was for £1 the other for £201 pounds. That was the last time the account was active I assume. They also said that the account was placed into recovery on the 28th October 2009.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
