    • I have a copy of my written report , bare with me whilst i find this out. Its not very long as AX told me to just explain the start and finish of the accident. Also, i had explained the accident to them around 50 times via the telephone before they requested a statement.   Is this diagram good enough or do you need me to draw one out ? 
    • i have put the diagrams in to a PDF so we know who is viewing them and to make it easy to zoom. should you wish to start any kind of private action against the other party we wouldn't want them to view them without becoming a member posted directly to screen means anyone can see them.   as i indicated on the other thread, i don't think you will have much if a chance of avoiding 50/50 or even worse on this it doesn't matter what the van driver did or didn't do wrong, the ins co' will have looked at the photos of your car and its damage and concluded your speed etc for the prevalent road conditions was not appropriate, esp as you live there know the road layout well and have indicated it's issues of narrow 1 lane travel .        
    • Thank you. That's very helpful. We would like the diagrams please. I understand that you have completed a written report or statement or completed a form with your account of the accident – but you haven't kept a copy for yourself. Is this correct?
    • Yes i have all the van drivers details .   I referred to ' driving slowly' to my property because the front end of my vehicle was badly damaged , the bonnet was completely cumbled- exposing the engine underneath. I drove slowly as i was scared of my car catching fire or something whilst i was inside . i drove around 2mp round the corner to my property.   It was a transit van, no passengers in the van. He had been in the area working. He lives in another city.   It was 16:25pm, no lights on any vehicles as it was day light. 
    • yes 10 is it that are still not 'accounted for' - possibly the extra 6 billion? Seems likely that despite the already identified horrendous waste of taxpayer money, failure of competence, lying and crony-ism .. the worst may be (likely is) yet to come

    • 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,

 

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

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...

Hi, I have absoloutley no idea what so ever. Certainly not in the last 5 years.

 

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?

 

They should ...give them a ring or DSAR them

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.
