    • Amazing thanks, I am not sure what to type as this is the first time I have got to this stage with the FOS, but my letter below is a start and would appreciate any comments/amends to suit:   Complaint about MYJAR Limited - Trading as MYJAR Reference Number XXXXX   Thank you for your email of the 29th June 2020, the contents of which are noted.   I have to say I am somewhat surprised and disappointed by the outcome of this and I would like to explain why.   Firstly, I attach a spreadsheet showing the state of my credit file.  This show the Default date to/from the amount of the Default, including CCJs.  In total I had 10 Defaults and 3 active CCJs at the time of the first loan taken out with MyJar.   Two of the CCJs were paid off in July 2017, however, and still remain on my credit file until September 2020/March 2021 respectively.   This should have been a sufficient warning to MyJar that they should not have lent any monies to me whatsoever.  However, they went ahead and, as you can see continued to lend to me each time, when all of the Defaults and CCJs were still active on my credit file.   Also, with regards to the table below, you can clearly see that another loan was taken out straight after the existing one.  I understand that you cannot have more than one MyJar loan at any one time, but what I would do is use my salary to clear the loan and then borrow again from MyJar to cover the amount that I had paid off….. in a sense “robbing Peter to pay Paul”.   Loan Date Taken Date Repaid Instalments Amount Highest Repayment 1 05/11/2017 22/11/2017 6 £1,000.00 £284.63 2 05/12/2017 06/02/2018 12 £1,475.00 £266.20 3 16/03/2018 18/07/2018 12 £800.00 £117.87 4 23/07/2018 outstanding 12 £725.00 £110.82   I would also like to state that Loan 4 is still outstanding as the account has been placed on hold whilst the investigation took place with yourself.  They have, however, offered me a settlement figure of £600 and to clear this balance at a rate that is acceptable to myself.   Looking back at previous correspondence, I still feel that all interest and charges that I have paid should be refunded.  This totals £725.90 across all loans.  This would therefore settle Loan 4 of £600 and the remaining monies of £125.90 owed to myself.   I would therefore ask that my case is reviewed with the additional information stated above.
    • Hello to all.  Any help or advice is greatly received.                      I traded in my car almost a year ago and purchased a second hand kia optima 2013 with around 75000 on the clock, and 127 a month in HP payments. After 5 and a half months of normal use the engine seized, the reverse camera and sensors no longer worked and the passenger seat belt alarm continuously sounds at various times when no one is seated in it. I had also needed to renew pads and a brake calliper almost 4 months after purchase. I had not raised concerns to the brake components as they would be considered wear and tear.                     Being in the industry I dropped the oil and found it to be extremely thick and probably not circulating to the top of the engine, i.e. the oil had not been renewed in a very long time (there is no oil light on the dash or any indication of fault or maintenance due) I retained the oil filter, and opened a resolver case, with tall the faults listed.                 Upon contacting the dealer and informing him of what happened he indicated he wanted no responsibility towards rectifying the problem as close brothers were technically the owner. I approached close brothers (18th February)who started the ball rolling and approached dealer again who formally by letter refused liability.                              Close brothers then sent an engineer to inspect my listed problems, this was visual as the vehicle will not move, after three weeks the report was with my case handler.  I requested this report twice but have yet to see it.  Close brothers informed me that the report was inconclusive and they would need to move to a more through inspection.             At this stage the pandemic hit, at no point did I stop work and had to continue on charity and the diminished public transport to commute to work (140 miles a week)  no courtesy car or rental was provided.  I maintained contact with close brothers throughout, and was given the same update, they were waiting for the engineering firm to do an assessment but they were only doing key workers . Despite me telling them I was a key worker, nothing was done until the easing of the lockdown. I was informed that ACE vehicle inspection would contact me to collect the oil filter.                             Eventually this happened on the 18th of June and I phoned each week to chase. I was informed on the 30th that the report was showing on the portal and my case handler (simon) would look at it and call me back. I received no call and called on the 1st with the same responses. Today (2nd July) I got Simon who tells me that the report is showing on the portal but when he went to open it, it was not there and he would chase the engineering firm and get back to me in a couple of hours.                     I believe I am being taken for a mug now and am unsure weather I should escalate my revolver case to the regulator or any other advice, I'm therefore at this forums mercy any advice will be greatly received. 
    • Yeah I think you're probably right. I cancelled it anyway because the balance was due on the 10th July and I thought if I held out for an alternative and rejected it I might loose my deposit. Virgin are not answering calls from anyone not flying within 14 days by which time  the balance due date will be well past. I didn't want to pay the balance just to keep my deposit and get it all back in 4 months. Better to cancel the whole thing and get my deposit back now.   The holiday is in October so I think it will be fine to travel by then. I still plan to take a holiday on the same dates but I doubt I will get 10 days in the Caribbean (or anywhere long haul) for the same price so will probably go somewhere in Europe. It's just frustrating when I see basically the same holiday advertised on the same dates but for 50% more than the one they just cancelled.   I'm not too worried about Covid 19 and plan to travel as soon as the quarantine rules are lifted.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I had really bad luck with a letting agent.

 

 

We went once to Court, that now finished.

It's only important because he had my correct address used during that claim.

 

In 2014 he made a new claim against me and gave an arbitrary address for me, not the correct one.

I didn't get any Court papers, but I had a CCJ entered against me.

 

I was refused the re-mortgaging of our home, a new phone, a loan to take advantage of a property opportunity.

 

The CCJ was set aside, but it cost me the fee and time wasted in Court, plus the bad credit and distress.

 

I want to make a claim for damages, but I do not know how to quantify the loss.

How do I put a £number on all the damage?

 

Can anyone help, please?

 

 

I have until Friday to file a counterclaim.

 

Many thanks

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for getting back.

 

During the Hearing to 'set aside' I proved that the claim was fraudulent,

as I was not transacting with claimant and owed no money.

 

 

For lack of evidence from claimant that I owed him money, claim was dismissed,

 

 

but I was given permission to counter claim.

 

 

That's why I need to meet the deadline.

I am assuming he was able to prove that the letting agencies claim against him was vexatious and is now counter filing for costs. :)

Hi Andy,

 

Judge said I could counterclaim. Either that or starting a new claim for damages caused by the wrong CCJ, my question remains: How do I quantify the loss? Can I claim for distress, or just pure financial loss?

 

Thanks

Hi,

My claim would not be just for wasted costs, but for the loss the wrong CCJ caused by the agent's action caused me.

 

How do I put a £figure on this loss? Has anyone done this to tell me where to start? Monday is my deadline.

 

Thanks

Well lets start at what financial loss you have suffered by having the CCJ registered against you...only you can provide that figure.

Here's a list of financial opportunities that I missed out on because my applications were declined:

- could not remortgage our home to use the equity to buy a flat - Jan 2015 price was £ 269,000. Now it is £320,000.

- could not take out a loan (£15-18,000) to pay for house improvements.

- could not get a new mobile phone contract

- could not open an ISA account

How do I move forward from here?

What actually losses have you suffered though?

 

 

ISA - You can open one now presumably. Maybe some small amount of interest you missed out on.

New Mobile Phone - Was the new contract less than your current one? When your current contract expired could you not have switched to pay as you go etc?

Loan - Can't you take out the loan now? How has this caused you a financial loss?

Remortgage - Are there no other flats available now that you can afford?

 

 

Remember you have a duty to mitigate you losses.

 

I would still be interested to know where the Claimant got this random address from? Was it an old address of yours or something?

Hi Ganymede,

I don't believe you realise the level of frustration I and my family went through during all these financial refusals, then two hearings, money spent on applications and loss. Why should I have to go through this due to a rogue agent?

I'm sorry, but your answer is not helpful at all;in fact, it's irritating. Put yourself in my shoes! Unless you can offer some advice regarding my question, I will not reply to you.

Beagleandrobin2 have you received any paperwork since the claim was dismissed from the court ...General Order or Directions with regards to your claim/counterclaim/wasted costs as its a little confusing as to how a judge can dismiss a claim and then state you can issue a counter claim...if you didn't initially issue a counterclaim with your defence.

 

Not doubting you but its important to understand what format we are to provide advice.

 

Regards

 

Andy

I'm not interested in your frustration as unfortunately the Court's won't compensate you for this.

 

I'm interested in what financial losses you can verify and prove.

 

Your time and Court fees are classed as disbursements and not "special damages" (aka your financial losses).

Hi Andy,

Agent wants to pursue a new claim and on this basis I got permission to counterclaim for the damage caused by his initial bogus claim. If 'counterclaim' is the incorrect word, then I'll file a claim for damages, but my problem is how to quantify the above-mentioned loss?

 

I hope this is clearer.

Sorry, I cannot. The Order says that if there is a counterclaim, it has to be filed by Friday 12 Feb.

 

I'll give an example: In Jan 2015 I paid £2000 reservation fee to buy a flat for £ 269,000, which I could not buy due to the CCJ. Now it is £320,000.

How much can I claim in damages for this lost opportunity that cost me £50,000?

Ok so the Claimant issued his first claim which was dismissed.

 

He's now issued a second claim and you've been given permission to file a counter claim in this action but relating to the original dismissed claim?

 

Is that right?

Counter claim or allowed to claim wasted costs ?

 

My understanding is : Wasted costs (rather than costs, or costs on an indemnity basis) is a costs order against the other side's legal representative for their misfeasance (and can be applied for by a party

against their own representative).

CPR 46.8

https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part-46-costs-special-cases/practice-direction-46-costs-special-cases#5.1

 

When you say "wasted costs" do you mean "a costs order against the other side" or "a costs order against the other side's legal representative rather than against the other side" ?

Hi Ganymede and BazzaS,

 

Ganymede, you are right. Iam not getting into 'wasted costs', as this is not what I want to claim for.

I want to counterclaim for the financial loss caused by the wrong CCJ brought about by his first bogus claim. Just one example: flat was £269,000 in Jan, 2015 and now it's £320,000 in the same development. So I lost £50,000. What is reasonable to claim for? £10,000? 20,000? The fee for filing is pretty high, so I woouldn't want to waste money. Realistically, would the Court award me losses in the amounts above? I need to decide today.

My opinion is you can claim for lost deposit only and not the difference in the price of the flat.
