    • One of the CCA's is now with PRA Group, as far as I can make out it started with CSL, then went to Aktiv Kapital, then I got a letter from CSL and now it seems that it's back with PRA. In addition PRA Group ltd recently transferred the account to PRA Group UK Portfolios ltd. This is the company that sent back the £1.00 PO saying that they don't charge a fee for supplying acct details. Also I read online that it's not a good idea to sign the CCA request as this gives them a copy of my signature.
    • CC ballifs is a super easy procedure but beware once the warrant is issued it can take MONTHS for baliffs to viist
    • the councils notice to owner wasnt even addressed to YOU at your home address as the named driver.  the NHS should have responded to it naming you to the council as the leaser THEN the council should have sent YOU new PCN to your address this resets everything back to £25 if paid within 14 days, else £50...NOT £159. i will guess they didn't? so you neither saw nor got the YELLOW PCN sticker envelope from the windscreen of you car at the time of the offence, nor were sent one later in the post, this PCN is probably appealable -  use the forms i pointed too above (ONLY do this if you def never saw/got a PCN dont appeal if you did) lie )  now as for the bailiff ...you said earlier: what cause you to ring the bailiff? you must have gotten the Notice Of enforcement through your letterbox NOT a txt or phonecall.  lastly... the NHS where you are should NOT BE DOCKING YOUR WAGES FOR UNPAID COUNCIL PCN's (if thats what this code 236 is in your lastest PDF?) if you've a union there id go have a chat with their legal rep. anyway look im not being funny but you seem all over the place so we cant really rely upon just today's story .... with CCJ's toll fees  PCN's wages being docked  and poss debts too? you must be all over the place...hence the pirate ship comment. if you want help with all of it. get your head together on each problem start a thread on each (even debts) and WE WILL HELP. just before i go. it makes me laugh a finance company arnold clarke paid a toll fee £2.20+£32 admin fee + £20 their FEE... have you always had the same car since last summer? thats totally bonkers for them to even be involved in.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi all,

Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel...

 

I'm going through all my correspondence from a particularly dark time of life, with the intention of sticking it to various lenders, one of which - Sunny - has assigned the debt to MMF.

 

I am no longer able to access my account information via Sunny's website so need to submit a SAR.

 

should the SAR go to the original creditor, or the DCA?

 

(I'm thinking either will lead me a merry dance,

but if I can state my legal position with confidence

I won't let them waste my time fobbing me off...)

 

Thanks in advance!

SAR always goes to the original creditor.

 

CCA to the DCA

Great, thanks.

Well, quite!

 

I've reconstructed the following from emails:

 

26/08/13: 500 loan taken out

 

30/09/13: 148.07 repaid (78.08 principal, 69.99 interest)

 

thereafter: "your new sunny.co.uk statement is available" (to which I no longer have access)

 

31/01/14: repayment of £347.96 declined (principal/interest split - no idea, but as they "also made a repayment request for your minimum payment of £168.29, which has been declined too" I'd guess 179.67 princupal/168.29 interest)

 

03/03/14: Sunny email - outstanding amount 336.58

 

03/04/14: Sunny email - outstanding amount 504.87

 

17/09/14: Sunny email - notice of arrears 336.58

 

06/03/15: MMF email - "original outstanding balance 868.92, current balance 868.92"

 

although as the MMF correspondence lists the original creditor first as Mr Lender, then as Elevate Credit International Limited T/A Sunny.co.uk (in the same email) I'm struggling to relate their figures to my Sunny account.

 

As far as "sticking it" to them goes, I'd like the interest + charges + 8%, plus CRA data wiped.

 

I explained to one company that I was struggling financially as my stepson had recently taken his own life. Their response was "and can you make a payment today?"

so send the sar and cca and see what comes back.

 

The sar will require a £10 postal order and the cca will require a £1 postal order.

 

The sar has to be complied with in 40+2 days and the cca 12+2

 

Once you have the info, come back and we'll see where to go from there.

 

if you need any more help in the meantime, pop back on to the thread, theres always someone around to help.

I've moved you to the MMF forum.

 

if you read a few threads here

you'll come to the conclusion i'm sure

that since MMF got castigated by the authorities

they like any DCA are now pretty much powerless

they are NOT A BAILIFF.

 

 

dx

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...

Thanks dx.

 

I've been on the wrong end of bailiffs too.

 

I'm not even remotely concerned or intimidated by MMF.

 

They have phoned or emailed me several times a day for several years.

 

I just want the facts so I can do to these predators what they've done to me. :-)

That in itself is a criminal offence and should be met with some very strongly worded complaints, and most certainly Ofcom needs to know.

It's been a while!...

 

I sent a complaint to Sunny/1MonthLoan on 29th September demanding repayment of £653.10 interest plus 8%, and removal of all adverse data from my credit file.

 

Reply received today.

 

"I write further to our email dated 6 October 2017, thank you for your patience whilst I have been investigating your complaint.

 

My understanding of your complaint is that you do not feel sufficient affordability checks were undertaken prior to the opening of your account. Furthermore, you feel that had a full and proper assessment of your financial standing been completed, the application would have been declined. Please let me know if I have missed any points or misunderstood anything.

 

To investigate your complaint I have reviewed the account opening procedures in place at the time. Having done so, I am able to inform you that we conducted creditworthiness checks, we assessed your ability to afford the repayments which would fall due under the proposed agreement and we considered how you were managing other debts at that time. Based upon these checks it was considered responsible to advance credit to you. It does however appear that the product may not have been suitable for your needs, namely longer term borrowing. Please note that we clearly state in our adequate explanations that our product is not suitable for borrowing over long periods as it is expensive if so used.

 

Bearing in mind the above, I am unable to uphold your complaint, as we believe that the aforementioned checks were proportionate and responsible. Initial assessment of your application accounted for some of the adverse information held at the credit reference agencies and as a consequence you were offered a small amount of credit relative to your stated income. As a gesture of goodwill, we will repay the difference between what you borrowed (£450) and what you repaid (£1103.10) which is £653.10 and will refund this to your chosen bank account. Please can I ask that you provide me with your account number and sort code so I can arrange for the refund to be processed. Once we have received these details, we will be able to transfer the funds within five days.

 

I appreciate my response may come as a disappointment to you, however I hope that, on balance, you understand the reasoning behind my decision. Should you remain unhappy, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service" etc...

 

No mention of adverse data removal.

 

Should I take it straight to the FOS, or attempt to negotiate?

Something struck me as "not quite right" about their response.

 

I've looked into it, and they have only dealt with my borrowing history with 1MonthLoan from May 2012 to end of July 2013.

 

1MonthLoan then became Sunny.

 

I borrowed from Sunny from August 2013.

 

I specifically referenced both trading styles in my complaint, and the "Sunny phase" is the one in which I came seriously unravelled and ended up with a default.

 

I don't think they've even looked at it!

 

So, as a "Final Response", it's not even complete, is it? :roll:

 

P.S. Their offer, therefore, only relates to 1MonthLoan (for which I have no adverse credit history). I'm thinking on the lines of separating the two, taking the 1MonthLoan offer, and going after Sunny as a separate complaint. Does that make sense??

Why not open up a discussion with them to say I will accept providing you remove all info from my CRA. Get a refund and removal from your CRA on a permanent basis.

I think thats a fair compromise - But then again the FOS are siding a lot more with consumers these days.

 

We could do with some help from you.

I actually read those this morning, and I pointed out to them the gaps in their final response (in terms of both logic and content!) three days ago - yet to receive a reply though.

 

I'm going to take this to the FOS

- I assume I can call them off if 1MonthLoan/Sunny provide a favourable response in the meantime?

They've apologised for not including the Sunny loans in their original response and have agreed to wipe the data. Just going to remind them that they haven't offered to repay the interest from the Sunny loans, yet... :wink:

  • 1 month later...

Received a funny little email from MMF yesterday demanding payment of £868.92 on behalf of Sunny

(written off, refunded, and data removed)

and £576.01 on behalf of Pounds to Pocket

(which they must have assigned after I referred it to the FOS, where it is still being reviewed).

 

Oh, and £875 on behalf of Mr Lender.

I haven't complained to them yet.

Thanks for the reminder MMF, I'll get on to that now.

 

They are funny, aren't they?

Block their silly emails, and put them straight in the junk folder, I wouldn't ever act on an email, if they wish to say something then they can commit it in writing.
